Default Strut (postcard lofi electronic)

I've been writing a series of musical postcard pieces (shorter than two minutes), both for the exercise of trying to write for a very short form and also to work through ideas more quickly. I just finished my fourth one, called "Strut," a lofi electronic piece that uses a lot of cataract and subvert.

These are all great, but I liked the first one the most.
I think because of the desolate vibe. Also the more abstract nature of the piece, which I think works very well in this short format.
The short pieces start have more impact when there is a bunch of them.
Listening to just one can go by too quickly.

How did you come up with the restrictions - before composing or during?

I was drawn straight to the Zepplinesq drums in Strut. Loved 'em. Got even better when the bass synth took over. Entertaining short.

Kaspar:

Thanks for listening. I've wanted to do these postcard pieces for awhile, figured I'd just jump in. My plan is to do ten to twenty or so and pick the best ones to release. The restrictions came up during the composition process. All of them started with one or two and then developed as I got interested in it.

Sammy, thank you for listening. Always honored when you drop in for a listen!
