I’ve put a bridge in between the first chorus and the second verse. In “I Feel Love” the song had only drum and bass left then it faded out. tears are gonna fall. In the bridge. from Cm to Dm. the snare is playing every two beats. There’s also a synth playing in semi-quaver through out the whole piece.Q9: Explain how you developed your completed sequenced arrangement from your chosen stimulus. At the end of the piece. then it follows the flow of the song “Rolling In The Deep”. What different is. and G7. pre-chorus. the synth faded in then the bass and the drum come in. and then bring up a tone. and the open hats playing a semi-quaver beat. which plays a G at the beginning. then A because I’ve brought up a tone. Rhythm: The rhythm from my piece was loosely based on the song “I Feel Love” by Donna Summer. for example the first two chords are C7. In the verse. through out the whole song the kick is playing four-on-the-floor beat. And then the verse comes in. texture and instrumentation. Form and structure: At the beginning of my piece.

I’ve also used panning in the swell. -The last feature is the panning of the song.F and G. In my piece. I've used repetitive arpeggio in the bass line. and C. They all panned from left. I’ve recreated it using ES1 and automation to control the cutoff. . I’ve used a quaver delay. -One feature of disco song that Giorgio Moroder created is that he used repetitive arpeggio.
