I finally got my bandcamp page up with a little tune I wrote on my synth for a discord challenge based on a patch preset I've been playing around with for a few weeks:

Boyish by penguinmusic

  

@ewe2, I appreciate it that you keep the music at about the same level. Nothing jarring. All soothing. I think you deserve a big juicy apple apple01

Yes, the challenge was to write a calming piece and it was just by chance I'd been messing with this patch with the perfect qualities and my mind had been cooking up something in the background as I'd been trying out various progressions with it. I'd actually recorded an even better take than this one but somehow neglected to take the synth out of pause so after a bit of "ARGHH oh no i have to do it again it won't be as good", I recorded this take. My synth has a direct-to-sd card recording mode which is how I did it rather to a DAW (which might have been a better idea but I hadn't expected to be recording anything, it was a moment's whim), and I thought this was good enough to do something with so then I did take it to the computer, put it in the DAW and applied a really nice shimmer reverb which makes all the repeat-y stuff more repeat-y and echo-y. I've done some good stuff with this synth already  but this was an unexpected piece of good luck.

Now I have what I call a creative "hangover" where it's difficult to not think about it and I have to look in other areas. I have an acoustic guitar-based song I've been working on and I'm waiting on a tin whistle I bought because I want to learn some tin whistle to see if I can play well enough for it and if not at least I have the synth to fall back on for some fake whistle a-hard-days-night-paul-10

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Well said @Ahhh Girl, I'm a fan as well ewe2 and listen to this type of music every day (my tv even has a music channel dedicated to it). Around the Boyish 2:00 mark reminds me of the intro to the Moody's "Your Wildest Dreams" which I dig.

Interesting! Yeah its got that similar theremin with a delay-effect sound! Another similar sound that I reference is the counter-harmony to the lead in Cars by Gary Numan, this is more of a sawtooth+pwm+lfo kind of theremin-y sound but no less driving:
