Final Thoughts:

I made at least one beat a day and ended up creating 104 beats during this challenge!!! They ranged anywhere from an escalating super loop (about 1 - 2 mins with building parts) to full arrangements with automations and multiple parts. Just kind of depended on my flow and ideas that came from each session.

I've played with all kinds of genres: IDM, various types of house (deep, tech, funky, prog, tribal), chillout, ambient, d&b, trap, ill beatz, dubstep, guitar beats, rock, industrial, techno, kinda pop, world, and stuff I dont even know what to call. I've used all types of vsts, hardware, fx, and just experimented generally sticking to a thing for about a week. I almost never went into one of these sessions with any preconceived notion, but rather just see what struck me and followed the white rabbit, without getting stuck in any holes.

My average time on one of this is about 30 mins but some can go a little longer or shorter just depending. I've got them all in my trello board, labeled and ready. Most of the songs I've finished have started as one of these seeds that I ended up working to completion.

This has been a great habit to start as it's just part of my day now. I have to make a beat, even if its just a loop with a few parts that takes me 10 mins. My minimal viable session to keep the creative mindset and muscles working. My daily music making habit and practice. I did start doing these in mid October and since then I've made about 300 of these beats total!!!

Got my daily beat in. This week were all sparks for the Shadowstar Metamorphosis Cypher. I'll pick my favorites to keep working on.

Got my daily beat done everyday this week. Ended up using the Deepmind on all the tracks since I rarely us it. Also did a couple of splurges to see if any of them stick for cypher 31.

Weekly Report:

Got my daily beat in again this week! Part way through the week I started focusing on making house beats because it sounded fun. Got some funky house as well as some darker, prog, and tech house ideas laid down.
