I then spent the remainder of the night browsing TVTropes, as my post last night (by which, I mean, early this morning) hinted at. I mainly focused on humanity tropes, starting with HumanityIsInsane and branching out, rather largely, from there. I absolutely love exploring the various aspects of humanity, both the good and the bad. It ultimately gave me a little bit of inspiration for my novel (which very largely centers around humanity, mind you), which I typed up today.
Speaking of things I've done today, remember the tune? Yes, THE tune. Yeah, well today, I thought up ANOTHER variant. This time, it's a violin the entire time as the main instrument--in fact, it sounded kinda piratey when I began composing it. You'd recognize the beginning parts as being the variant on the tune, if you had actually HEARD the tune, but it's not an exact copy of the tune; it's one note short on each measure during that part.
Not wanting to forget it, I actually wrote down the tune. It goes something like this. (I realize you'll only have the vaguest of guesses as to what each sound I'm writing is like when played on a violin, but, well, not much that I can do.)
With 1, 2, 3and- timing, it goes like this:
Buh--da--duda--- Bah--da--duda--- Buh--da--duda--- Buh--da--dudah (four measures, out of eight)
Buh--da--duda--- Bah--da--duda--- Buh--da--duda--- Buh--da--dudah
Duh-- (rest) (rest)
And at the end of the rest measure, adding a transitional bass-note of 'Bu', and then adding the bass to each measure, repeating the whole thing. Keep the above as violin, while adding in the bass which looks like this (excluding the first 'Bu' transition which'd be the 'a' note on the fourth measure):
Buhn-------------- Bahn-------------- Buhn-------------- Buhn-------------Bu
Buhn-------------- Bahn-------------- Buhn-------------- Buhn--------------
And during the second rest, adding in marching snares, same on each measure, 1-e-and- 2, 3, 4. Badada ba ba ba. Badada ba ba ba.
This is more or less the THE song part. It should be familiar enough. Snares, bass (albeit more basic than normal), and something else (albeit with one less note than normal). But after going through that time, we get to the tricky part. It goes into sixteenth notes a lot more. No bass, no snare, though on each quarter note there's people clapping instead. It's mainly the violin, 1-e-and, 2-e-and, 1-e-and, 2-e-and (technically 1234, but you'll see what I mean), going like this:
Ba-da-da--Buh-du-do--Ba-da-da--Buh-du-do-- (I called this going up in intensity, but I'm not sure what its musical term would be, maybe an octave up, maybe just playing with greater volume, but it's more emphasized than before)
...And then, repeating it again.
One final note, on each rest note (plus the first note of the ninth measure which technically is never a rest), there's a stomp of the foot, and I'm thinking that's throughout the song but it's definitely there during this advanced part.
I didn't get to finish composing the song, but I was thinking after the advanced part, the basic part would repeat, and then a slower part would come in, as a bridge, and then maybe doing the advanced and basic parts again. (Either two basic with an advanced sandwiched between them, or advanced-then-basic.) With an ending coming after that. So while I didn't finish composing the song, I got fairly close.
Tonight's movie night, so don't expect me to post anything else today.
