"Clubbing" is a tune I put together based on another demonstration of how I make my music. I didn't want to call it the same thing as last time, so I asked them what they thought I should call it. "I don't know, how about...'Clubbing'?" was the gist of their collective reply.

The bass line is intentionally simple, as I was, after all, showing them how easy it is to get something going. Some say it is very difficult to produce music - I hear it quite a bit, or at least the sense that it would be. That said, I believe the best way to learn to make music is through making music. I think it is very true, what some say: the hardest part is getting started. I say: just close your eyes, open up your ears, and get started. ^_^

At any rate, this is the first mix originating from that demonstration. It's over all tonality is based on both of the whole tone scales, though there is a distinct repetition of the pitches C and G. So, there is also a basic diatonic method employed in this piece.

As is often the case in my recent music, I have avoided classic melodic material. In it's place, this song is sung by "descenders" and "risers" in a siren-like fashion. The rhythmic element of this alternative melody is provided by parallel compression, specifically with the hi hats. I feel this constant glissando "melody" fits well within the whole tone architecture of the piece - emphasizing the relative absence of diatonic structure.

In so many ways, the repetition of C and G centralizes the whole tone tonality, which is otherwise known for it's lack of a "center."
