We're making steady progress to make Red vs Blue Season 11 music releasable and available.
Last Monday's episode (S11:E16) has bits of a new song called Chorus we're working on.
Like most (but not all) of Season 11's music, no keyboards were used. This was in an effort to get back to early BGC and away from the synth-heavy sound of Reconstruction. On Chorus, I used those two pedals, but the sounds you hear are being generated by the venerable Danelectro baritone guitar and being played live through another pedal.
Thanks to the efforts of our warrior coder poet, the Notes section of trocadero.net went live today, with entries going as far back as 2004.

A few Reconstruction episodes ago, I wrote a short progression and played it on a Mellotron sampler (Think of the flute sound in Strawberry Fields Forever.)
The progression wasn't set to a particular Recon scene; it was more one of those "throw some paint at the canvas and see what sticks." Sometimes, those little audio sketches "click" with Burnie's idea for a future scene and get further developed.
In this case, the progression was too bare and too boring to even show it to him, and a couple of days ago, it felt right to add a little Spanish-type guitar thing to it with the Telecaster, making it definitely unusable for Red vs Blue or Reconstruction.
P.S. Sorry Luke, I'm totally ripping off your awesome "Today's Doodle," except in this case it's "This year's doodle."
