Akemashite Omedetou Gozaimasu! Happy New Year Everybody!
(A couple days late XD) but, to start off this year, I have a brand new composition that I've been working on since December.
This composition is weird since it encompasses traits from classical to modern pop, but it's not strictly one or the other. I feature a basic drum set, some percussion instruments, a predominant piano, flutes, and strings. Although it may seem that I've kept to strictly using acoustic instruments, I cheated when the "drop" came. I used an 808 Bass kick with some 707 snares, I did this to create a relaxed but atmospheric break in the song. I drew a lot of inspiration from my favorite artists, DJ Okawari and Yiruma, they both have influenced my original style quite a bit and really made my past with their songs. As for the premise of the song, I wanted a peaceful song that reminded me of the really touching moments in my childhood; ie me inside on rainy days. So I set out to create a piece that complimented the pitter-patter of rain. And this was what I composed, so I really hold this song dear to my heart.
But, enough reminiscing about the past, it's 2016! I hope you guys enjoyed this as much as I did making it! Have a happy new year and I'll see you guys soon. So excited, can't wait!
