I would like to write a song
That is so vibrant and so intimate
That the earth would adopt it
As if it had sprung like the stream
From the land’s memory
As if no one had written it but life itself
And my song would travel along
From bird to wing, to tree
To breeze to heart to breath to song
Because a song belongs to everyone
Like the spring
A Song; Vangelis
I came up with this chord progression on my guitar. The theme sounds very mediterranean whatever that means.
This is one of the pieces I do not know where it comes from. I did not produce this consciously. It was just something that wanted to get out of my head. Because I am not very good at listening and knowing what kind of notes I’m hearing I had to make all of this by trial and error. Each note painstakingly typed in without any knowledge why it was meant there. It just felt good. It’s one of my personal favourites.
Another song I have no idea where it came from. I used several chords and scale modes that I had no idea exist. I was just writing what felt good and trying to get the music out of my head. When I look at the structure of the composition it is technically very interesting and looks like I engineered it but I didn’t.
I have good memories associated with this piece. It is a very simple song. I recorded the guitar solo in the first take. I actually made a second one but it wasn’t as good as the first one. I was completely spontaneous and because of that it gives a distinct feeling to the music. I like this one a lot.
These kinds of tracks are just fun for me. It’s a canon piece. Meaning there is a repeating chord progression and during each repetition there is added a new layer of sound and melody.
I wanted to make music for a specific purpose this time. It was meant for a medieval RPG game theme. Not my game, I was just having fun.
I imagine this being played at the end of a concert. A 5 minute ending solo on guitar. I really like playing this one. You can hear me plugging in the amp at the beginning, I recorded it in one go.
This piece of music came to my head while I was high on cold medicine. It’s also sort of a draft of what I would like link-dead music to be like.
Probably the best song from my tracker days. This would fit link-dead too.
This one is beautiful, I know its my own piece, but I really love it.
A piece I wrote with Link-Dead in mind.
