Description
Everyone in APOD has been fascinated with iPhone apps lately. Chordbot has been used on a bunch of tunes, and this song was based around it. Bryn (paticledots) had created the guitar chord sequence for this with chordbot, and then after exporting it into logic he added some ambient sounds, rhodes, bass and drums. He put it in our shared Dropbox and I grabbed it from there.

I took his tracks, created a synth melody, cut up the bass and re-arranged it, added some more percussion, and wrote a string part. decided I hated the string part (since I am completely lost when it comes to automating strings) and changed it to a warped choir that I made from a couple of mellotron patches and a theremin patch.

Not really a downtempo song, but since it's mellow and electronic instrument based.....

Picture is a painting I did for my daughter that she decided should be hung in our garden.

Coolness
You've created this via iPhone? Wow, how does that work as far as exporting etc? Dropbox maybe? I have been wanting to buy an app for creating tracks, but still pondering whether or not I should. This sounds really awesome guys!

Chordbot is the bomb. I'm using it with guitar chords app to teach myself new tricks. This has such great sound. Reminds me a bit of Portishead.

I recognize this...!
(It ended up in my Dropbox, too!)
I really like what you've done with this, and the mellowed-out vibe.
The mellotron and theremin patches worked well.


(...love the painting, too! :)

Smooth and cool. Sometimes having a sort of Pink Floyd vibe. Very soothing to my ears.

Really gorgeous and mellow song. Love hearing how it was done. The whole mobile iOS app thing is so new, it's great to hear what folks are doing with them so far. I'm totally blissed out.

I'll have to check the chordbot app out. A bang up job of twisting and tweaking to get just the sound you wanted. I like it a lot!

Okay...yeah...
I immediately had to go check out Chordbot...having gotten an iPhone for my birthday...

This has got a neat, slow, lurching swing to it... Plus, it's got mellotron, and, really, that's all I need to know... After that, the theremin is gravy...
