Contrast is my magic word as you might know...Check out this great write up by @! 👌
Arranging a track is an art in itself, that many struggle with. Here are 5 key factors you need to consider, when you want to produce a sonic track!
The concept of contrast is probably valid for many things in life - but very much so for music. You need constant changes to keep the listener interested and surprised. Contrast can be achieved in many different ways.
Contrast can be achieved by dynamic - but also dynamic itself is key to a good song. Parts need to build up and break down, before they can erupt again and culminate in a drop. That is why these parts are called that way ;) .
You want to create dynamic between the different parts, but also on a musical level with varying levels of loudness or e.g. cut off in the synth settings.
3 tension + release
You need to build tension in order to be able to create these moments when the crowd goes crazy. When they do, the drop is not the most important thing there - it is because the build up was good! Concentrate on summoning enough tension, so that the potential energy that everyone is anticipating, can actually be released. Without tension, no release!
You need a driving force in your song, but the highly energetic parts should not outweigh the softer parts leading up to it. Again it is about contrast with many different tools and elements. When you don´t feel the energy, no one else will.
Yes, even if you produce instrumentals. Your music needs to tell a story - and as you know from many great examples, a guitar, a lead synth or even just a little percussion element can sing and tell a story. Put these sound with the right melody or rhythm in the right context and you can tell the story you want the world to hear!
