“No Brainer”: So I’m not really hearing, like, “chords” here — just the bass line with the funky leading tone, the ping-riff thing, and the baby-robot notes. I mean, together they do sort of make “chords,” but it’s pretty subjective. I’ll tell you what, though: I’m not building chords off the fifth and sixth notes of the bass line. I just don’t hear vi and V chords like I’m hearing the other chords I can pick out of this loop soup.

He wrote a series of very influential string quartets, two operas, cantatas, orchestral and symphonic works, and some church music, as well as that beast of a scherzo above!
During the recording process, you’ll soon discover that not all takes are created equal. And it’s common for vocal and instrumental tracks to be spliced together later, during the editing process. This means that the more detailed notes you can jot down about how each take sounds, the better. You’ll rely on these notes later to edit and compile tracks.
