Cork Nights - Demo
I decided I'd make public the original demo for Cork Nights. It went through so many iterations that some may like to hear what it began like. I can't remember in what order I recorded the tracks to this. I think it was just the backing piano and melody on the first night and then bass and drums the following day.
Bare in mind this is very very rough, and was only meant as a sketch to keep the ideas in my head, so it doesn't sound very pretty. It holds together fairly well to begin with, but then it all goes badly out of sync.
I had always planned to put a piano part in the final version but it never got done.
To keep with the idea of this being a "sketch", I took Donncha's original photo and messed about with it. I shifted the hue map, added a brush stroke layer and carved away at this till I got a type of painting look I wanted. I hope he doesn't mind :)
