This past weekend, one of my great friends, Halcyon, moved in with another of of my great friends, Charlie. To celebrate Halcyon’s arrival, they threw a party in their apartment in Chinatown. Charlie has a reputation for composing musical ‘evites.’ He asked me to compose the most recent one — this is what I came up with. Now that the party has happened, I feel confident I can publish it without fear of causing uninvited party guests.
In recording this, I used a lot of vocal layering, a lot of autotune, and a lot of other acoustic sounds (e.g., oboe accompaniment and hand claps). I like the sound a lot, and am hoping to use it in some more serious music sometime soon.
