The part below is just me nerding out about music theory.
So I worked on a new tune, vaguely based on the melody of my other tune Expectation:
To me, the excessive major chords, ignoring scale notes paints some forced happiness, creating a naughty and borderlines creepy atmosphere. This is when I materialized the image of a con artist deceiving people.
I added more notes to the melody, jumping up and down all over the place, sometimes into a tri-tone interval to create a sense of wariness. I also added the low notes following the high notes at the end of some measures to portrait the con artist’s forced happy appearance on the surface to deceive people, and the real intention lurking underneath. The low notes can also be heard as the con artist’s enjoying himself, knowing that he has successfully pulled off the feast.
