Nedeleg Laouen!

Author Comments

Originally a Christmas jingle for Audiodraft. This thing isn't doing well there, and I guess it's because of the genre (it sounds more like a VGM than a jingle), so I decided to share it with all of you.

'Nedeleg Laouen!' is Breton for 'Happy Christmas!', and I thought I'd release it here at this time because Advent is starting this Sunday, and I am looking forward to it. :D

I whipped this theme up in about 20 minutes on FL Studio 10, and I was inspired by the OST for Kirby's Epic Yarn when doing this. You might recognise the influence.

Happy listening! ^_^

I used your music in a video

We went to the beach on Christmas Day and I wanted to find some music that had a Christmas feel, but wasn't a Christmas song. This song has enough variety, clarity, and the bells worked well. I faded the end of the song to mask its abrupt ending.

Here is the video. http://vimeo.com/34240751


Troisnyx responds:

Thanks very much! I'll be sure to take a look. ^_^


You just get better and better :)
I'm glad to see/ hear that your mixing skills get better. Your composition was always good.
There is a bit a machine feel on the ostinato bass groove, but I think it can be interpreted as a VGM style thing...

Troisnyx responds:

Thank you! I'm glad that mixing bit is getting somewhere. ^_^ Anything else I could tweak? x

A nice tune!

Certainly a very festive composition! The Breton title is also nice, we tend to associate Christmas tunes WAAAAY too much with America these days....

Troisnyx responds:

Dav eo skrivañ un titl brezhonneg evit... no forget that, let me revert to French: Il faut écrire le titre en breton pour rappeler les autres que tout ce qui est associé avec Noel ne vient pas nécessairement des US of A! :P


I wondered when you'd release a song titled in Breton, it looks so similar to the Welsh 'Nadolig Llawen'!

Its nice to think we have something shared :P

The track was excellent, I cant help loving your work :D

Troisnyx responds:

I noticed the similarity before, but when I was typing the Breton title I KNEW I had come across the Welsh equivalent before, but couldn't point out how it was spelt... I dared not do anything more for fear I'd butcher it. How I even got to know Breton was out of interest (two of my friends, and effectively one of my close friends, are from Brittany).

Thanks, by the way. Glad you love it! <3
