Autumn Flaw is an electronica instrumental music project by Patrick Cheatham. Autumn Flaw music fits Instrumental Electronica and New Age styles, but with faster tempo like Techno or EDM music, and with more challenging song evolution. Bright and light melodies alternate or blend with dark passages, pioneering new musical moods. Percussion intensity, and sudden edges to starts and stops of sound fragments bring late twentieth century synthesizer New Age lighter styles into combination with a stormier sound and pace. Patrick discovered in 2009 that he best enjoyed an experimental approach to making music, with the idea of allowing the music to somewhat write itself. He invests in unexpected or accidental occurrences of synergy between software instrument parts that show between fair to strong potential. Foundations of songs are grown this way, after carefree and unambitiously composing synthesizer software instruments and their note patterns. Patrick also chooses to only refine into solid final music those interesting sound qualities he happens upon, rather than demand too much of musical results by reaching for special traits. Patrick therefore only asks that each song finalize as congruent and whole, steady upon repeated listens over weeks and years. Autumn Flaw music grabs listeners with frequent changes to the evolving listening experience, with no song part dwelling long. Sweeping airy backdrops, swift driving synthesizers, drum sampler percussion pattern scattering, and variations of short time delays deliver an uplifting rush to listeners who are fresh with energy and ready for the musical disruptions.
