I KNOW THE SOUND QUALITY IS A FAIL. I, for one, do not have access to amazing recording equipment, although for v1.2 I'm going to try hard and get something worked out. :-)
It's up to you if you knock off points for something i can't control.
Moving on. :-)
Recently, my high school has gone through the suicide of one of our sophomores (which devastated EVERYONE), and the sudden deaths of two fathers of two juniors.
This is my musical response to these grim happenings.
This song starts off with a simple melody, and then drifts into a spare and pretty melody. "Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing" which signifies God's presence in our lives. The quiet melody is quickly drawn out by a thundering middle movement, which represents the trials of life and how easily we can lose track of what's important.
And then it all drops away...and the hymn returns, before explosively finishing off the song.
I...can just express myself in music. It is my hope that this song will give you hope. That even when things seem loud and clamorous and scary and confusing...you realize that there are things to get you through.
Updates:::: Good news! My church has given me permission to use their epic baby grand in the final recording, v1.2
(Although when i say final that could mean anything....i could get inspiration to write another part on, etc, etc)
AND my school/teachers have given a date for the chapel at which this song needs to be finished--APril 23. Yes, this isn't finished. IF ANYONE WOULD LIKE TO DOWNLOAD THIS SONG, FIGURE IT OUT, AND ADD TO IT AND REPOST IT, YOU'RE WELCOME TO IT. There are loads of talented folks on newgrounds, more so than I am. If you have any ideas about the song, structurally, then please please let me know. kthnx.
Some of the reviews I have been getting on this song just...well...yeah. To think that this song touched you all as much as it touched me writing it...it's a phenomenal feeling. Music transcends almost everything, music tugs at your heart...
I regret to say that i need to add to the list of people this song is dedicated to. Another father of another junior just passed away on today, Jan 2. WHY THE HELL DOES THIS KEEP HAPPENING?
I don't know.
~Come, thou Fount of every blessing,
tune my heart to sing thy grace;
streams of mercy, never ceasing,
call for songs of loudest praise.
Teach me some melodious sonnet,
sung by flaming tongues above.
Praise the mount! I'm fixed upon it,
mount of thy redeeming love.~
