I'm afraid I don't know Thom Yorke...
What inspired you for this theme?
Well it's been on my hard drive for over a year, so details have
started to fade. I think I started out with what ended up as the
intro, wanting to have a looping chord progression that ended
somewhat open on a diminished chord. At some point there were also
melody to this part.
I already commented on soundcloud :) But about the diminished chord
(if you know this already, please ignore):
You can replace almost any dominant chord with a diminished a half
step above. And since they are so symmetric you can change the root
around even more..
C A7 Dm7 G7
C A#dim Dm7 G#dim
C C#dim Dm Bdim
C Edim Dm Ddim
etc.. Also replace any consonant chord with a dom7, like with the Am7
- -> A7. Take the Dm7 -> D7 -> D#dim:
C Edim D#dim Ddim
:) This last example probably takes it a little far and would work
better over a consonant bass instead of the roots of the diminished
Nice tune though,
For what ended up as the main theme, I tried to build
fit the tight sound of the drums. The chords were a result of each
part in the harmony being worked out and recorded one at the time,
bass after that. The bell theme just came...
