Alright, been working on this song for the past few days with barely any sleep, glad to be done!
This song was made for Bosa's Dreams of Splendor competition, and I consider it to have a lot of very good stuff. I unfortunately had to cut a lot of the stuff I wanted to put in it due to time constraints (Basically had only two days to work on it), so this is far from the finished product. I'm planning on extending this somewhat and creating a separate song with the first sequence, so more from where this came from soon.
Albeit currently in a prototypical state, the actual song itself is meant to represent a voyage through different facets of a man's psyche as he grows, starting from the very much innocent years of childhood, slowly growing more serious until the teen year enter, where he discovers the anguishes of life. From this point on, it's a slow decent into madness, until he learns to not be preoccupied by these kinds of things, whereas his childlike mindset comes back to him, with the added new found confidence to live off the rest of his days, until death comes to take him.
For people wondering why I listed this under Jazz, it's because of NG's retarded genre classification. The actual genre for this is actually Mainstream, a cross-section between Classical and Jazz, but I feel that the creative process for this song was more apparent to a Jazz mindset, hence why it's listed like so.
In any case, I am fully aware of the truly horrendous mix the song currently has, I am saddened to say that my ear for mixing is null at best. If anyone here has any tips to give, I would be ever so grateful if you could write it down in the comments or through PM.
Thank you all for reading this, and I truly hope you enjoy!
