Dance Music Production Vol 16 Deep House
For Volume 16 we examine the theory and practice behind the production of Deep House.
Drawing on elements of Chicago house, soul, funk and Detroit music, deep house is often best known for its jazzy suspended chords, close-concentrated dissonant melodies, soulful vocal snippets and a general laid-back, deep feel to the music.
Spread across 3 DVD’s and running close to 14 hours of video we examine the production of this genre step by step with a focus on the deep house style signed to labels such as Anjunadeep.
The tutorial begins with the general idea composition and sound design principles behind the trademark chord progressions, bass lines, vocals and counter melodies. During the course of the first disc, we work at building the basic backbone of the example track while introducing the theory of chord development, retrograde inversion, thematic development in the bass, chord “planing”, chords suspensions, diminution, intervallic dissonance and bass/harmony/melodic counterpoint.
Using various examples in both theory and sound design we show how these can be used to create the jazzy feel of the genre.
