G'day g'day NG,

I was jamming on piano the other week, over at a friend's place while he laid down some epic beats on his drum kit, and I came up with the melody in the bridge of the song there. Since it was a half-tempo beat, I wanted the rest of the song to have a chill yet driving feel to it to compliment the bridge.

So, of course, I picked Trance! :D I haven't done any Trance in a while so this was a real pleasure to do again. I used the same drum samples from the bridge's beat for the rest of the tune and it gave it a nice punchy quality that my beats don't normally have. Although, I did overlay some nice cymbals to help give emphasis to the builds.

Melodically, the entire song is 3 chords. :D I used a fair amount of inversions, strewn throughout the melodies and synths, along with filter & modulation automations to help keep things interesting. I went for a funky kinda bass groove instead of the basic 4/4 because I like to bop. What can I say, I like having low frequencies that sway me.

The title is Seasons because the song feels like Spring when it starts and slowly evolves into Summer then Fall and Winter. I'll let y'all decide which parts are which since it can be open to interpretation! :D Everything was created entirely in Propellerhead Reason 6.

Yeah very relaxing :) Not sure if it's me being tired but it did make me sorta day dream :p *downloaded*! Also looking into your other tracks. Right now I'm taking a break from recording gameplay of BF3 (Battlefield 3) and I need some good audio material. If you allow me and if I can find some songs that would go good with my videos I'll use em! Good work so far man and the best of luck to you!

This song would play as I as I am in deep thought of how to make the worlds greatest inventions.
This was calming and inspirational to listen to. :)
Great work sir. XD

Wow....This makes me feel calm....Its a great song that makes you feel good.

durn responds:

:) Thanks warrior. The song was definitely made with those intentions so I'm happy to hear you feel that way.

you never dissapoint me! this kinda music you make here is why youve been my favourite artist for the longest time.
Keep up the good work!

best regards, -KLO~

durn responds:

:) Thanks KLO. I'll certainly keep making dreamy tracks, my head's always in the clouds. :)

It really is a shame,

How someone with such talent could go so unnoticed. I really hope you get some serious recognition and your skill put to some very good use.

Love many of your songs,


durn responds:

Thanks a lot for the very kind words, IMS. It's remarks like that that help motivate me to start doing more than just make music; I need to start -performing- & promoting myself in the real world as well. :) Thanks again, man.
