PUNKADEMIC Music Theory For Electronic Musicians 4: Twists & Turns TUTORIAL
Welcome to the MUSIC THEORY FOR ELECTRONIC MUSIC Guide – Part 4!
In this class we are going to focus on turning chord progressions into an expressive element of the track, and not just “blocks” of harmony. We will add some new chords, look at passing tones and a few kinds of suspensions, and a kind of “out of the box” chord progression called a Sequence. This will make writing chords a whole lot easier!
If Your Music is Missing Something, This is Probably It.
If you are finding that you are writing track after track, and while they sound good, there is something they are missing – then this it. You are missing the sense of harmony that professional producers have. In this class, I’ll arm you with all the tools you need to produce those tracks just like you imagine them.
Who should take this course?
Anyone interested in producing their own music. This will get you up and running and give your tracks a unique sound in no time.
This course consists of video lectures, which all contain a session in Ableton Live 10. If you are using a different program (or none at all), no worries! This isn’t a class on how to use Ableton Live, and the concepts can be applied to any DAW.
