Live Your Life

   So, here's the album! With an unfinished song, an accidentally deleted one (probably the best), 4 new songs (2 of them are remixes) and 4 older ones... That's definitely not how I thought it will be.
   Anyway, the album! It was a lot of hard work! And my PC made it even harder. I've had enough of doing everything 2-5 times slower. And the best thing, I had to finish 5 big school projects 'till the begining of this month. But I managed to finish everything in time! Somehow...
   I think I should stop talking about my problems and say something about the album. I'll put a player below, if you want to listen to it while reading this.

   Loncé, probally my favourite song from the album. Soft, calming, with a simple 4-chords ambiental synth, some background drums, acompanied by a synth/piano and some bass notes, everything at a low volume. It could be edited better, but I didn't realize that with only one channel on. (if I play more channels at the same time my PC crashes)

  ''Classic'' is... "classical". The classic result of the first song, made just for fun. When I opened the studio I wanted to do some Drumstep. I ended up with a Cello line and a "Mottown Guitar" sample, then I recorded some piano notes and automatized the volumes. I literally didn't put any effort in it, just 3 hours playing the piano and 2 other hours of arranging the samples and automatization.

   tNce was the first song made entirely by myself, no loops, no preset MIDIs. It's inspired by Λ→И's Tracer. I wanted to do something progressive and that was the only style I could think of after making the first part.
It's interesting that I composed that song but never noticed something before. I'm listenig to tNce while typing this and it starts to sound diffrent. It could be just because it's 3am, but I hear something in the synth that gives me the feeling of an Ambient song.

   Take a Risk is the first song I actually put effort into. I wanted to start working with +Shahid Munawar and I did an instrumental for one of his songs, "Song For the People". It was in the times when I didn't really know how to produce music and I was still using samples for the parts I didn't have ideas for. So I did the song that now is named "Take a Risk" and, I don't know if just because of the bass — that I was thinking of replacing with something darker but I never told him that, don't know why  he said that it wasn't what he was hoping for and everything ended then. Another problem with this collaboration would've been to find someone to sing the lyrics. So, yeah. Well, I hope we will work togheter sometime. I always like to read his posts, even though I didn't have time in the last months. You should definitely check his blog, Views Of A Depressed Soul.

   Enjoy Your Life, a repetitive Funk song made entirely with loops. It's... I just wanted to do something funky. The hard guitar parts were just for making the song diffrent and weird. Yep, that's the way I was thinking about my music when I started. But it does not sound that bad. It could actually be a good song, and I will surely make a remix of it in the future.

   So here I am, at 5am, finishing the last thing for the release of my first album. It could be a lot better, but I'm just at the beginning. For the first time in the last month I have some free time. I have to find something that I'll do instead of sleeping. Now where's my bed?
