Course #6: Fleshing Out the Arrangement
Ready to make it phat?! This week you’re going to learn about oh so many of the amazing digital instruments and tools at your fingertips. We’re talking leads (guitar, violin, saxophone, trumpet, piano, etc.), pads, plucks and arps (pizzicato, harp, glockenspiel, church bells), loops, and harmony, intervals, chord structures and chord progressions. Exploring the aptly named Flesh by Native Instruments, you’ll learn how to flesh out that song like a pro, with a pro! That’s right, your mentor will be there to guide you through the process of making your song sound complete. Your Academic Facilitator will further assist you in creating a pleasurable, filled out foundation by using chords, progressions, and various instruments that add to your song’s energy and emotion. We’ll also dip back to the 90s with a listen to Cocteau Twins’ Heaven or Las Vegas and take a stop at Sonic Charge to check out Echobode and Bitspeek.
