Beat 13: Aquafatigue


Something about the ticking clock noise from the accordion beat stayed lodged in
my head. It’s funny that certain sounds are as evocative as smells, like a train
whistle or the sound of rain on a roof. It turns out that there wasn’t even a
ticking clock in the accordion song- that and the tapping I heard were both just
mechanical noises from the original accordion sample (played by Daedelus). It
still seemed like a good sound to revisit, so I used it here, along with a
backwards electric piano. The kick drum begins with a whoosh of backwardsness,
and there’s a little synth puh-plink to drive home the despair.
