Was Something Here? Was Something There? by Richie Phillips
This months free song was inspired by a 3 part series on BBC4 on a couple of weeks back called Sound And The Fury (or something close to that) It was about Avant-garde composers of the 20th century. I enjoyed the program a lot and wanted to try re-create something similar to what I heard in the series. I recorded spontaneously leaving mistakes in and flaws, using/trying to use those mistakes and flaws as part of the music. Out of 6 pieces of music I recorded I picked this one. It’s quiet more similar to what I’ve done before rather towards what I heard from the program but I liked the sound of what I come up with. I think it has a kinda horror/suspense tinge to it, not intentional but fitting to this time of the year I guess.
The title came about from another program that was on night which was about ghost hunting or something like that, I wasn’t really paying that much attention. But I was trying to think of a title for this piece of music during that the show and I just come up with it from that.
