The Messenger Trliogy, part I (dev thread)
« on: January 11, 2018, 12:05:33 am »
Since finishing the second album The Messenger Trilogy, Part III back in September, I figured I'd make a thread for development on the third album, that being Part I (yes, these are being released out of order, it just makes more sense from a narrative standpoint). This thread will probably be solely for any WIPs that I write for Part I, and will be creating a new thread for when the album itself is complete (which I don't know when that will be; I'd like to finish it ideally by late-2019, mid-2020 at the latest).

For now, here are the current list of WIPs for The Messenger Trilogy, Part I:

• 04. The Willing Duke I: Mine By Right 4:36 [SKETCH 01] (2018-11-12)
• 07. Innocence 1:59 [SKETCH 01b] (2017-12-15)
• 08. Cold Sweat 2:30 [SKETCH 01c] (2018-11-04)
• 09. The Resistance 0:57 [SKETCH 01] (2018-03-29)
• 10. "So They Say..." 3:03 [SKETCH 02b] (2018-11-28)
• 12. Upon a Furrowed Brow 6:53 [SKETCH 01] (2018-05-10)

List will be constantly updated as new WIPs are added.

New WIP:

The Resistance 0:57 [SKETCH 01] (2018-03-29)
Experimenting with odd-time signatures (keeping it a steady 13/8 for now).

I wouldn't exactly call this a "multipart" song (cf., Fermi Paradox I-V) despite having definite "sections", but as far as what I have planned with the album, this song is definitely more story-heavy compared to the ideas I have for some of the other tracks; hence why you're getting the full 6:53 rather than a verse and chorus.

New WIP:

Cold Sweat 2:24 [SKETCH 01a] (2018-10-11)
Considering how SKETCH 01 is already 2:24 long (and is projected to be around the 6:30 mark), I'm honestly concerned that I might be writing too much, as I'm aiming to keep Album 3 one disc (so, 79 minutes total); however from what I've planned, it already seems to be creeping dangerously close to that number, and I don't want to split it across two discs (partially because there's no good place to put a break, and also I don't want to *remove* content because it would take away important story elements).

Still, I've only began building 6 out of the projected 15 tracks so far (two of which haven't been posted here, as they're not quite ready yet), so maybe - hopefully - the issue will fix itself before it even arises.

New WIP:

The Willing Duke I: Mine By Right 4:36 [SKETCH 01] (2018-11-12)
This one was actually one of the first songs I began writing for the album, and even though it's still not finished, I feel the structure is pretty much nailed down.

Updated WIPs:

Cold Sweat 2:30 [SKETCH 01c] (2018-11-04)
Not much changes to report, other than a change in tempo. Oh and also it's all been written, even though this is stil a preview version of the Sketch. As is Innocence (which has since been renamed to The Innocent Lies), but again, only the preview version of the Sketch is listenable.

New WIP:
"So They Say..." 3:03 [SKETCH 02b] (2018-11-28)

Again, a little more experimentation with using odd-time signatures, but keeping things to a slightly less insane 5/4.. and even then I'm drifting into good-ol' fashioned 4/4 here and there, with a dash of 15/8 to spice things up; It's just how I've planned on writing the album.
