When I was just a little kid, I was in complete awe when Luke, C3PO and R2D2 walked into Chalmun’s Spaceport Cantina (Mos Eisley Cantina). Not yet having experienced a club atmosphere everything happening was unfamiliar and new. I was drawn to this smoky, alien filled remote watering hole where shady deals, boisterous gurgling laughter and the danger of a bar fight were all intertwined. The jaunty music seemed to glue everything together.
As I got older, and learned that dixieland music was not that alien at all, I found it more and more difficult to believe this was the sort of music that would be played here, in this raucous, dark and mysterious hangout. I often wonder, what would music sound like in an alien club?
For this Patchable, you are to create an original piece of music for what you think the Cantina Band should be playing. This challenge is fairly open to creative interpretation and execution. Just ensure that you are using modular synths as part of your process.
