The Void

Recommended Posts

I don’t know much about synthwave. I just know it bears a strong resemblance to the Tron soundtrack which I love.

 

thx, will check out that OST. good times ahead.

It's a D3, I seriously doubt Matt can hit a D2.

 

lol my bad :LOL: I sing rather low so I never imagine D2 to be hard to achieve

When I heard "The Void" again today, I thought that at about 3:00 an end like "Muscle Museum" would have been cool.

Then get hooked on Synthwave immediately.

There are so many layers and aspects of this song to enjoy.

 

I love how Matt delivers a different vocal tone for each chorus. The soft strings, the ominous synths and drums, beautiful piano and those wub wubs. Just a brilliant song and the acoustic version is equally great.

 

It's getting up there with Exo:Overture as my favourite slow muse song.

where in a live setlist is this going to fit? globalist positioning and/or perhaps first encore.

 

seems those are really the only logical spots. every other option seems like a poor choice.

do any of you out there who plays keys know what chord is played at 2:05 and again at 2:18/19?

 

it's either just a very odd chord...or a mistake repeated. my ears are pretty good, but i can't figure it out.

 

there's also something wonky going on at 2:15.

 

another RBS-like piano-playing flub that matt decided to run with and keep on the recording?

 

maybe will have to wait until i obtain the sheet music to find out.

It’s an EbMaj7 in the acoustic version.

 

you are probably onto something. it just sounds weird to me in a lower octave for some reason. really weird. ...which is why matt probably picked it.

 

on the other hand, elton wrote some of his better (stranger/best) material in that key, so that prob explains why i latched onto it for some strange reason.

 

i still think something wonky is going on at 2:15.

 

sorry to get so technical in this thread all of a sudden. think i'll move into the tab board hereafter on this front.

I’m not hearing anything too weird at 2:15, it’s descending Eb-D-C octaves in bass possibly with a fifth being played. Then the chords follow the ascending bass line Cm - Eb(Maj7) - two bars of Gm. If it kept climbing to a Bb, we’d have Undisclosed Desires. :chuckle:

 

Also the chord there is Eb, but the song is in G minor, where Eb is the VI chord. The general chord progression includes D7 and D7b9 chords with the F# note borrowed from G harmonic minor. There’s also a descending Csus - C - Cm section on “these delusions” with an E natural borrowed from G Dorian (or F major).

 

We can talk about this here, it’s perfectly on-topic. :)

yeah, i know it’s in G minor; just saying that i suppose my ears perked up when those chords come in.

 

as for 2:15, what you said all makes sense. maybe it’s literally a matter of when matt’s fingers actually hits the keys which makes for an interesting shift.
