Dr. Plague

Plague Doctor

Steinberg Cubase LE / AI Project for “pandemic”

I’m writing a new song idea called Dr. Plague after a creepy but very cool Bubonic Plague doctor outfit where the mask was a birds beak.

The synth line is a monophonic Arp arpegiated line that syncs with a drum beat.

I’ve added a guitar and mandolin part as well as two tracks of vocals. I have been using Cubase for a month or so – and this is the “free” version that came with the Zoom R8. I might try a music video soon – maybe stop animation or something like that.

This was inspired by some person in the UK walking around wearing a plague doctor outfit:

This is a gothic part of my songwriting challenge. The music as it is is too upbeat, but it’s a start. I need to transpose it to a minor key.

Let’s see where this goes. My mandolin and guitar parts will be very different than the last 3 song challenges.
