How Do You Come Up With Track Titles?
Posted 17 December 2018 - 02:55 PM
just take a word and then put cum before it like cum castle, cum goggles, cum phlegm etc.

that's genius, e.g. one could have an album called cum ... and then every track title begins with cum (get it?)

I used to not put much time into track titles, but lately I feel like having a relevant title does add a bit to the enjoyment of the actual piece. So, what I do now is listen to the song, try to get a mental picture or a sense of the emotions / feeling of the track and then go from there. I like it when Aphex does stuff like providing gear information in the title, so we can get a sense of what he used to make the piece (like the GX1 Solo Tuss track).

Sometimes puns, sometimes math, sometimes encoded messages. Mostly banging on the keyboard, though.

I have great difficulty recently, which is why some of my releases are just various unicode characters arranged in patterns.
Sometimes a particular sound will stand out in that track, and I'll name the track as an onomatopoeia for it, or a track will have a certain texture associated with it.. of course though, I obscure things further by editing the words a bit, an Autechre-ripoff technique I can't help but use.
Other times, I just use botechre for inspiration lol.

Usually there's some word or emotion in my head that can easily become a song title, but with weeklybeats I just started taking the date as shown in macos on the top right (i.e. "sun 12 dec") or something. Has a good IDM vibe too if you think "sun" refers to the sun.

I name my tracks after the actors/actresses from the television show Home Improvement.
Occasionally name them after birds.

patch names+random fuzzy thoughts. also asking friends for names and fucking around with the words.
it's like naming a child except you can call it bleurop because it sounds like a fart and isn't gonna get bullied for it too much

strong adverb + noun involving space or science in some way + random prime number = IDM gold
