This song is dedicated and in loving tribute to my dearly departed dad. You'll be missed, pops.

+ R.I.P. Andy Durnford : November 11, 1950 - December 4, 2009 +

I started this song after returning home from Florida where my father had been staying. I gotta say, it's a relief to have a creative outlet such as music for helping to channel grief and the other miseries of life. I would definitely not feel the way I do about life if not for my music.

I got the intro and chorus/verse done before I left for a vacation to St. Maarten and created the bridge and fleshed out the rest of the track when I returned, more relaxed and not so crazy. This is probably my most full-sounding and properly eq'd piece to date. Have spent the past 2 days almost solid working on it to get it how I wanted.

Kinda sad, but uplifting melody -- definitely catchy though. :d As usual, made entirely in Reason 4.0.The intro is definitely daft punk influenced though I came up with it quite by accident when I was messing around with the sequencer in Thor.

The two organs are courtesy of the Electro-Mechanical Refill pack that's currently free for download for registered Reason users on the propellerheads website -- it's sick! Tried a little something different with the drums this time, I'm loving rex files.

As usual, please rate/review/enjoy. :)

Amazing...

Relaxing, soothing... I could feel the expression of sorrow behind it but more with a feeling that "everything will be alright". I'm really sorry about your dad :(

Words Can't Express

Everyone at VNSTUDIOS wish you the best in dealing with your father's passing, death is one of the greatest griefs in life, but as you show with this song, it must be dealt with and eventually we can overcome it. The song has a good melody, which conveys the sense of sadness but views it with a more optimistic perspective rather than darkness and despair. Music is a great way to channel emotion, it's what drives our creativity and inspiration. Words can't express the tragedy of losing someone so close, leaving it up to sounds to portray the feelings. Best of luck to you and your family Durn, and here's to hoping for a great New Year for all of you,

~VNSTUDIOS~

Thanks gang. :) I've always tried to hold onto the feeling of hope no matter how crazy life gets. Glad it was conveyed through my melodies. :)
