Missing You - John Sercu

Share Download this song

Author Comments

"Missing You" is the first composition I adapted with Reason.

I wrote the song when I was about 15, for piano. The harmony teacher I then took lessons from liked it very much and wanted to write it out for a harmony. But at the end of that year I had to move to another city and contact was broken off. The plans that had been made were never realized.
Yet I always kept on dreaming how my music would sound when played by an entire orchestra.
It was not until sixteen years later that I came across the computer program which is mentioned above and I could finally make my dream come true.

In this first song you can clearly hear the influences of the music I listened to in my youth. Those influences were the music of the Beatles and Ennio Morricone.
The rhythm of the snare drum seems a bit like in "Your Mother Should Know" by the Beatles. The first chords I use on the piano were inspired by the beginning of "Imagine" by John Lennon solo. With this difference that I play in minor, whereas John Lennon played in major.
That really gave it the melancholy atmosphere I was looking for.
When you listen to the trumpet solo attentively you can surely hear the influences of my passion for the soundtrack music of Ennio Morricone.
The instruments you hear in this song is a female soprano, percussion, piano, strings, bass guitar, a hammond organ and of course the trumpets.

Hope you like this song and if you do don't hesitate to listen to my other compositions,

With friendly regards,

John Sercu,
