Okay, I’m asking for your honest opinion here. I’m working on my next CD, and one of the chunks of music I’m considering developing into a full piece is this one. I’ve always liked playing around with crazy chord progressions, and for many years I have wanted to come up with something that defies all the laws of music theory and has a tritone chord progression.
The tritone is traditionally the worse, most dissonant interval (set of notes) of all. Basically, if you play a C and then an F#, that’s a tritone. I think music theory would scream at me for even attempting a piece that actually uses the tritone interval for a chord progression. Maybe that’s why I was so determined to find a way – and this sample is filled with tritones.
I want to know your HONEST opinion. Does it work? Is it pushing things a little too far?
If you do like it, what kinds of emotions does it invoke? If I do use it, it will need a name. I never choose a name lightly.
