Electronic Music Piece of the Day Give-Away

Well, before I get back into any of my scheduled political rants this month, and trust me there are a few planned, I thought I'd finish off the "Veritas" uploads with the third and final part of the work. "Veritas - Part III (Thumb Flamenco Remix)" marks the thirty-second upload in the Gauntlet of Balthazar BandCamp hosted 391 & the Army of Astraea Electronic Music Piece of the Day Give-Away.

This section, Part Three, features a meandering piano line played and recorded in the "Thumb Jam" mobile music app, and serves as the "melodic" climax of the piece. The Flamenco element rose up out the more Industrial / Electronic elements of Part One and Part Two, I suspect not just because of my affection for Regional Spanish Folk Music, but due to the minor key that I happened to be playing in Thumb Jam at boot up.

As a review, I must say that Thumb Jam is a really user friendly (and easy) app to operate and very fun to play around with, even if, or maybe even more so, if a piece is improvisational. The piano sound/s are in some respects better than many other similar apps, and maybe even a good chunk of the upright piano synthesizers out there that cost many hundreds, or thousands of dollars more than a free Google Play Store download like this (without the in-app purchases of course). Also, you can extract the notes as midi data and further alter the sound in pretty much any digital audio workstation program to your heart's content. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the conclusion of this experimental opus, and as always, till next time.
