Aeris – Second Glance: Concept (October 9, 2008) (download here).
as I haven’t posted any clips for a while I wanted to go ahead and put this up – it is a song that my friend Bun Mun and I have been working on. Bun Mun has an impressive musical background including having at one time been signed to Ministry of Sound with his band Redefine. He’s brutal with the minimal, but he is also a guitarist and bass player. The two of us seem to have styles similar enough to make some good sounding stuff, but different enough that we manage to complement each other quite well. One thing we don’t have is a lot of time to hit the studio together, but we can always hope that will change in the future.
at any rate, last year we got together and started working on this song, “Second Glance” (I don’t remember why we called it that but I think it had something to do with coming up with a good melody on our second take). There is live bass by Bun Mun (that admittedly needs to be tightened up – we used the first take we got) and some great sounds coming from a Korg MS2000. I had a great time playing with all the different presets on that bad boy.
although this clip is admittedly more of a concept than a song, I think it has a lot of potential. It’s simple and has a pretty good vibe. One thing we need to do is change our band name – we picked the name Aeris out of thin air to refer to the works we put together because we’re both fans of Final Fantasy. Sad, or cool? Maybe both.
