Today I’m introducing you to the New England composer Brad Couture who writes music mostly for sync purposes, but also write and release piano-based ambient/post-rock/cinematic music as well.
Tell us about the song Turnabout!
For Turnabout, I wanted to do something a little different that the two previous releases – Volumes I and II were more on the softer, “prettier” side of piano music. Since piano can technically be considered a percussion instrument, I wanted to explore that side of it a little more. Tape delay patterns also helped the rhythmic side of things!
This latest release of mine is the third installation in a series of piano and other string based instruments – called “Strung”. The two previous releases, Volumes I and II, were purely piano and some cello and violin, but with Turnabout I also added a bit of a beat with an analog synth kick (a modified sample from a Linn drum machine specifically), because I felt it lent itself toward the percussive feel of the song.
