Mi Sueño


Author Comments

Here it is, my next submission for the NGUAC 2020. Music, melody, harmonies, and instruments were performed by me. Singing was done by the amazingly talented Catarina G. I also wrote the lyrics. (sorry if it sounds a bit self-centered, I have to be extra clear in these types of competitions because I had a problem with my last submission.

Here are the lyrics, (sorry if you don´t speak Spanish):

The long days I have had

I'm finally where I want

I'm living my own dream.

Mi sueño.

You can see my stripes.

I make friends of all types.

When they read my lines

Es mi sueño

Your observation is quite true.

this makes me special just like you.

Ven y te enseñaré how were different but yet so special.

Y vamos, cantamos, Rio Bravo, Rio Grande. It's all the same at the end.

Y vamos, cantemos, Rio Bravo, Rio Grande. It's all the same at the end.

But we are so are so unique.

you're taller or petite.

And we all have our dreams.

Nuestro sueño.

I will be myself,

For anyone in need.

Bullies not allowed.

We'll befriend them.

I like the cute riser at the beginning and the airy texture with the E-piano and guitar. The vocals are beautiful, and the lyrics have an empowering bent. I like how you mixed English and Spanish - it makes the piece sound more authentic in a way, as a lot of bilingual people I know go back and forth seamlessly. I also like the “phrase overlap” thing you did at 1:23 (and again at 2:42). The piece ends a tad suddenly, and there could’ve been a tad more variety in the instrumental hierarchy throughout. At some point, an instrumental solo or a more prominent return of the E-piano would’ve been a welcome change. Still, the production quality is professional-grade, and I really like seeing your softer side after being more familiar with works like “Guilt” and “You’ll Get Yours” from past years. Keep it up, Dude2312! ^_^

Thank you, TaintedLogic! I am right there with you when you say the song could've been a little bit longer. I was a bit hurried to write something good! But no excuses.

Thank you so much!
