Prog Pop Punk by drewbeered published on 2013-06-07T20:09:15Z This is a track I wrote in Sibelius years ago. I wrote it in the span of 24 hours and wrote it entirely linearly - never changing anything once I had written it. So that's why it changes character abruptly here and there. It's also why it takes about a minute to figure out where it's going lol. Also, because I was writing it in Sibelius, I was tailoring it to the Sibelius midi instrument samples. This was recorded with Abelton and it sounds a lot better, though it's hardly perfect. There are sections where a guitar is supposed to be palm muted and it's not, so there are some leads that you can't hear very well. Also there's the occasional cowbell that's supposed to be a part of a tom fill...whatever, you get the general idea :) It's called prog pop punk because it's quite pop punkish once it's past the intro...though with the Abelton guitar it's much darker sounding. Prog - because I was fucking around with irregular time signatures and complex leads.
