Trickling Winds Song Finalized

First time trying out drums and cleaner instrument samples from East West on this one.  The bass is definitely much stronger here and more intense.  Unfortunately I haven't had a chance to work on this in a while, so I'm just wrapping it up for now.  Maybe I'll come back to it some time.


"Trickling Winds"

It sounds like a buildup theme of some sort, but probably because it was the climax of whatever I had.  Tongue

Orchestration Begins on Cloudlessly

So I finally found some time to at least begin adding orchestral instruments to the piano solo I put up a while back.

As mentioned before, this is a variation on Cloudless.  Progress is slow since I have a bad habit of filling my free time with other things lately.


"Cloudlessly (Draft)"

The earlier piano draft is called "Cloudfully" and can be heard here:

As usual, any suggestions please let me know. Grin

Another Piano Solo Variation: Cloudfully

So I keep coming back to my older song Cloudless... The key is just really easy for me to improvise on the spot with I guess. I've managed to build on the melody a lot more than the last variation I made on it (Cloudful). This is just a quick recording of me playing it on the spot so I don't forget later, meaning it's very much just a draft. I'm hoping to make it an orchestral track like the original eventually. Since I like the piano solos though, I'm also saving some of the variations I come up with along the way.  They seem to stand up well enough on their own without other instruments.


"Cloudfully (Piano)"

Let me know any suggestions please - still trying to figure out how the orchestral one should sound, so I'm just playing around with the piano version for now. Smiley

Song Variations on Cloudless

So I keep coming back to this song it seems (Cloudless, which I made almost 2 years ago now).  The key is just very easy for me to play on the spot with I guess.  Lots of changeups in the main melody compared to Cloudless and Cloudful (the other variation/piano solo).  I'm hoping to make this one an orchestral track this time, but maybe I'll have a piano solo version as well.


"Cloudlessly (Draft, Piano)"

Right now it's just piano - I can't seem to ever record it at a time I'm not busy with a pending midterm or class project.  And now I have to try to find time to work on both this and "Trickling Winds" as well.  Sigh. <_<

New Song in Progress: Trickling Winds

Seems like the only projects I can commit myself to lately are songs - and not even long ones at that.  Current song I'm working on is just experimentation with drums.  It'll be my first time actually using heavy percussion so we'll see how it goes.


"Trickling Winds"

Somehow I keep starting off working on the climax and then have to figure out what the beginning should be...
