Future Looks – New Music Track from Playfio

Future Looks the new track from
The latest track from Playfio is called Future Looks, and has been in the making for about a couple of months now. Just got it finished off with some lyrics, although not that many lyrics! You'll probably better understand when you’ve heard the song. It’s been quite a productive Easter Monday though.

This song is about the rapid transformation of technology and the unpredictable and unforeseeable future. These days are extremely hard to predict what kind of world we may be living in even 10 years time. I was reading the other day about Google's plans for augmented reality spectacles, just one of the many things that would drastically change our future. It's definitely an exciting time to be alive.

I hope you enjoy this song, it's full of contrasts, plenty of different instruments, and some great build up’s - quite a bit livelier than my previous song ‘Velvet’. I tried to use and quite complex chord structures within song, which i think work quite well, especially with the use of some powerful orchestra hits. Also the off-beat, repetitive bass line gives the song some real life.

For this track, I was using a new home-made pop mask on my microphone (MXL 990 usb)- an old CD case holder and tights! Who needs to spend 20 quid on one from Amazon? The vast majority of this song was written in Reason, and some other techniques are used by recently learnt online. Surprisingly, this track’s speed is 140 beats per minute, although it doesn't quite sound like.

At the moment, can’t really think of anything else to say about this song, please do enjoy it and I welcome your comments.
