I would die a thousand times,
cross the deserts, tear the skies;
oh I would do it all
I would do it all for you
just to say that I love you,
that I love you.

Finally, after quite a while, I’ve got a new track out. 🙂 It’s been sitting on my computer for a couple of weeks now, and there are still a few things in it that I would like to iron out, but my inability to get the time to do so means that it’s just been bugging me. So now I’ve decided to just put it up as is.
Anyway, the track itself is quite a simple piece: I did, in fact, try to make it simple. It’s somewhat influenced by Ravel’s Bolero and the Newsboys’ The Orphan, in that it is constantly building by both adding and removing layers. It’s also, perhaps, influenced a bit by some of Coldplay’s stuff: I was listening to Viva La Vida and Prospekt’s March recently, and I was interested to note that in lots of those tracks there’s the same ‘kick on every beat’-type thing going on.
Let me know what you think.
I admit, I didn’t envisage this track going quite the way it did. 🙂 Comments and criticisms are, as always, more than welcome.
I came home one afternoon really stressed out: it hadn’t been the best day, let alone the best week. The house was empty; I dumped my things and sprawled on the couch. As I sat, I realised just how soothing a few moments of quiet can be. With the opportunity to simply relax, I felt all the stress begin to fall away. This song is how I felt when it was quiet at home.
A simple piano track with a few pop elements, too.
Reflections on what’s going on in my life at the moment. I feel as though I’m on the threshold of not only a new chapter, but a whole new book. I’m finishing uni this year and getting married soon after – I can see the landmarks up ahead, and I feel as though I’m on the brink of forever. Whilst everything ahead is positive, there’s always some sadness in losing a lot of what I have at the moment. But part of living is making sacrifices and moving on.
