After passing through my ambient noise phase and just now getting my acid experiments out of the door, I’d like to tackle Berlin School as my next music project. The workflow I’m envisioning for this, is to compose MIDI tracks in a DAW (most probably Cubasis on the iPad) with placeholder synth sounds and when I’m done, sequence my analog modular synth through a MIDI-CV converter and multitrack record the audio. I’ve got all the necessary tools for this, but I’m just starting to get acquainted with Berlin School music composition. Since we not only have a bunch of long-time fans of the genre here in the community, but also people with lots of experience making this kind of music, I would like to ask for some tips, tricks and insights.
So far, my starting points for Berlin School composition are: - four note arpeggios - drawn out pad sounds - monophonic, keyboard-style lead synth solos - some experimental, random-ish “sparkle” sound effects in the background - little to no drums - lots of delay and reverb
Is that a good path to go down?
Not really sure about song structure at all yet, but I guess that field might be a bit more open.
