This is another original song off of my album "Illuminate." The song title is derived for all the pieces because this album has a theme of light.
I work very hard to compose complex songs and melodies. It takes my mind away from the troubles of life by creating music, and I hope that you appreciate something about my style.
What gear and software did I use to create this piece?
- Midi Controller - Novation Ultranova
- Reason 9.5 as my DAW (Digital Audio Workstation)
- Neumann TLM 103 Microphone
- Norman Acoustic Guitar
- Yamaha O1V96i Digital Mixer
- Digidesign 003 Rackmount interface
- Apple iMac (Late 2011, 20GB RAM, 500GB HD)
This piece is somewhat interesting because I combined electronic sounds with the sound of me playing acoustic guitar. The electronic style that I’ve been experimenting with is a newer approach compared to older recordings when I made more traditional acoustic based songs. I'm sure as time passes, I'll share more traditional acoustic songs.
One of my biggest inspirations to delve into more electronic sounding music is a DJ by the name of Porter Robinson. I feel that he pioneers the frontier of the electronic music genre.
I’ve kept a great deal of music private. In fact, I have a huge archive spanning many years. I’ve been recording music for well over 20 years. Fortunately, I have decided to start sharing more music online.
My 8 year old daughter recently asked me, “Daddy, don’t you want to share your music with the world?” Her insight by asking astounded me, and I found inspiration from her to post these on DSound. I look forward to posting more.
