Case of simple reasoning
on: October 15, 2020, 22:52:15


A Case of simple reasoning from the onset was meant as an online collaboration between the three of us. Dan provided a basic musical idea, in a basic rock groove. Dick added drums and bass. Then some time passed where we tried to think of a title and lyrics. Some ideas were tried and rejected when we hit upon the idea of using a text from Arthur Canon Doyle. Sherlock Holmes cases of reasoning  lend themselves for musical interpretation. It took us from end of August to October 15th to pull this together. Apart from the actual brainstorming and recording, it took some time to figure out the exact alignment of the tracks, samplerate and bitdepth betwee our DAW's. Lesson learned for next collaboration - arrange BPM, samplerate and bitrate upfront.

We welcome further ideas for this and other collaborations. @Pleudoniem @ProgRockDan

thanks @LePlongeur  - for catching our tune in progress in this board. Always good to know an actual human listened to the music.
Yeah - the use of this lyrics was unexpected until @Pleudoniem  came up with the Sherlock Holmes connection.
A 'theme' is maybe still around the corner but I could sense a connection with the current wave of #fakenews and #conspiracytheoryexplosion in the chorus 'A case of simple reasoning'.
