This is an ongoing list of song ideas I created with a small and simple iOS app, called Figure. What’s great about this app is that it only contains four tracks for drums and percussion, and two tracks for bass and lead, which forces you to really focus on the core of your beats and hooks.
Obviously, not everything that comes out of those 30 seconds jams is a genius piece of life changing, earth shattering music. But it allows me to make music wherever I go, whenever I’ve got 15 minutes that I’d rather make music than waste otherwise.
For 2018, I am working on a project to compile an album with songs based on the limited ethics of this little app – focusing on just a few components to work out the best grooves and melodies with a simple live electronic music setup. Check my Facebook page for updates on how I get on with this project!
