Time Goes On, New years song.

2018-01-02 08:21:29 by maxxpump

This is how I created my new composition "Time Goes On".

The reason I composed the piano in this way for this piece is that I hate this time of year; christmas that is. I don't like christmas as I have social interaction problems as a result of my AS and always found large family gatherings hard. As a result this has made me feel extremerly lonely and isolated. I made this piano riff which you hear at the beginning of this piece, which after I recorded it I thought it sounded pretty sad. I showed this piano piece to Davis Loman when I visited him in december, and he immediately told me to record it in, he was actually pretty emotional at hearing this and he told me he found it erie. We recorded the bass and strings in a 80's style on the tyros and I filled in the gaps with the extra piano chords in the verse. I wrote lyrics for this, but as yet have not recorded the vocals, as I fear I can't express what I want to convey. Daniel, turned up at christmas eve and we recorded the dance stabs with the Alesis A6, and then recorded the drums using the Roland V-drums and chopped/looped them. We finished off with a bass sweep we found in serum and we recreated a similar sound using the Pro 5 and a Behringer filter pedal. We then added horns, and then the string synth sections using the Solina String machine, with a Small stone by Sovtek which is a really good phaser pedal.  This was recorded through a vintage Neve/Helios small format (16 channel) console. It has some pretty cool EMI/EMS pre amps and is a valve powered and uses valves for preamps and output stages. We thought about recording with Pro-Tools or possibly using Logic, but went with a combination of DAT recorder, reel to reel (2 inch) and a Tascam Digital recorder. 

I hope everyone likes this and if you think you want to sing or spit some bars to this get in contact with me.
