Hi all,

started this slight slower than usual 163bpm apache thing last weekend.

Got another bit done tonight, so it's gone from 1 minute to 2 !

Here's what I have so far... see what you make of it.

Bump for later
again, I like it for a bit, sort of reinforced/broken beat thingy Smile

but again it doesn't really go anywhere - the noisy keyboards are fine in the second half, but they're still over the same shuffly beats as the first half, as though you're playing live keyboards over a fixed drum pattern - it needs breaking up somehow (to my ears)

and I'm now minded to post this...

Yes, true - but then I haven't really had the time to work on the beats fully just yet.
You might have noticed (or maybe not judging by your reply!) that the beat picks up some pace for the last 20 seconds or so of the track... I guess you might be talking about a more dramatic "breaking up" than that, but I do plan to do some more breaks-wise.

The inspiration for the tune is based on the journey of a star as it travels around the universe encountering planets, nebulas, asteroids etc
The next section I want to work on is where the star meets the black-hole Nervous Lol

Hopefully that new section + some additional work on the percussives will help to break things up a bit more.

I also want to do a version that doesn't switch into different sections so often... maybe just concentrate solely on the drums for variation.

We'll see ... could all be academic anyway, cos baby no. 2 is on the way Hahaha
Okay... did a bit more with this.

Still more to do on the drums (some rolls / switch-ups) around the transition points of the track especially.
Also needs an ending. But overall, it's not too far from being finished I think.

... worked on the last section a bit more, happier with it now.

There's 4 distinct sections to the track at this stage.
Hopefully I've managed to keep a flow despite all the switches.

Still want to go back and add some more drum variations and I have an idea for the very end of the track too - but close to being finished overall.
More or less finished now - bar some eq work.
