Summer Ice

More piano... it's just more fun to play your songs out fully rather than build the phrases piece by piece.
But lately hard to feel motivated to play anything at all.

The Day Approaches

Was going to put some more time into this one but it's been sitting on the shelf for a while so I doubt I'll get to it.  It's just a short suspenseful loop for a "small" project. Wink

Wanderstruck

Just a short, simple, admittedly repetitive tune that's been stuck in my head this past week. Makes me think of traveling or exploring the world a lot, as well as the anticipation and hopes that come with it. The first half gives you the sense of the initial dream and disappointment that comes with reality; the second half is the light at the end of the tunnel.
 
Lots of frustration for me personally lately, so the tune was fun to make, cheered me up a bit.  The beginning of the song is how my year's been so far - I hope I make it to the second half.

More Piano

Not enough motivation to finish up entire songs lately, just some light touching up of piano recordings.

Song Remix - Softly Cheerful Museum

Finally finished with this one (took 3 months since I started, though I admit much of it was just idling time or lack of inspiration Tongue ).  First time doing a remix and spending so much effort on a song only 2 min long though, my back is killing me. Grin

It's definitely unlike all my previous songs, just by the style of it and complexity.  It's also a very happy song, good for "cheering" people up I guess lol. Cheesy


Hardest part was figuring out the instruments and trying to get the sheer number of them to sound well together - was a very good learning experience and made me appreciate just how hard it actually was to make the original.  For the longest time, it was a very slow and boring song.  The piano came last and really was what did it.  I suck at making a flutes-only song I guess. Roll Eyes

Enjoy!
