The Refugee's Song

Share Download this song

Author Comments

Composed this last year, while struggling with the Home Office, stuck in a rapist's house, talking to fellow refugee friends and contemplating the mass refugee exodus on crowded barges. Intended as a successor to Tsukikanade, a piece I'd composed some time back.

I played the piano and did the vocals, and had a friend handle the reverb over at Soundskills, the studio / creative place at Brookfield where I volunteer. Then we hit a halt. We didn't have any decent orchestral samples over at the studio at Soundskills. I offered to do the rest myself, and so I did.

Since the first half of production was done on Logic Pro 8 or somesuch, I had the WAV of the original exported and imported into FL11 so I could continue with my soundfont magic. Yes, the messy reverb came from Part 1: piano and vocals. The result is what you hear. The reverb on the original WAV was already excessive, so I decided not to add much more on the extra sounds. It's tough work trying to explain your workflow to someone else, but I'm glad we pulled through, Jason Beardsworth. (my Soundskills friend)

Dedicated to SnowTeddy.

LYRICS:

The storm beats down a crowded barge;
They pray to safely reach the shore:
O free me! Release me,
We can't find a place to be safe anymore.

I may not be upon those waves,
Or sinking to the ocean floor,
But free me! Release me,
I can't find a place to be safe anymore.

Troisnyx responds:

This is one that needs redoing at some point. Are you thinking what I'm thinking? :D

this is so relaxing.

Awesome, relaxing and beautiful <3

Troisnyx responds:

Thank you. <3

I think this song is very very nice, I like to very quiet and sombre feel to it, the piano really amplifies the mood and the lyrics are very very well written.
I had an idea for how a level could work in Geometry Dash (very slow and dark) but it seems It's not available to use right now, but I really really like this song and what you did with it!

Troisnyx responds:

Chillius, I didn't enable external API *yet* on this song. I'd like to know how it'd work, how sombre it could be. I guess I could enable it if it means it allows you folks to experiment on it. In fact, I'll do it right now.

Glad you really like the song. <3

Hey Troisnyx! I'm gonna use this song in Geometry Dash! ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

For real this song is pretty good for something non-wubs and weebs.

Troisnyx responds:

Oh my, I am flattered. If you do, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make it a sombre level. PM me more about it and I might just enable external API, if you tell me what you have in mind.

EDIT: External API has been enabled. See how you do with this thing.
