Raak Explained

I completed this one by Halloween and the mood of the piece is appropriately more menacing.

Using one bassline / chord progression throughout I wanted the progression to be uneven, meaning shorter version alternating with the longer one.

Then I laid some melodies over it, making sure that I don’t stay in the key with all of the notes 🙂

This is one of the melodies along with chords played in unison with piano and the Stick.

Both of the previous melodies have variations, so they don’t appear the same way each time.

Also there’s a shortened even time signature version with modulation full tone up from the main key.
