HOW I DID IT
The choir melody was drawn from the synth part in remaxim’s “Vibes, Strings & Drums”.
Then I worked in Fireproof_Babies’ drum stems, which sounded like an excellent fit with the beats in “Vibes, Strings & Drums” (after their tempos have been matched).
Cut and spliced the Ballistic Affair guitar riffs, and also pitch-shifted them, to fit the chord changes I had in mind.
Thanks to being assigned to remaxim, I had fun exploring several musical ideas from some of his excellent stems. Particularly the guitar riff from “Ballistic Affairs” and “Vibes, Strings & Drums”. This remix also gave me a good chance to work with Fireproof_Babies’ drum stems (which was the basis for the title).
