So... I decided to try my hand at Bosa's "Dreams of Splendor" contest about a month ago... He went out of his way to send me an invite, so I figured why not. So, I spent the last month struggling against a really nasty case of writers block, and one day... like... 2 days ago... I was mucking around in FL Studio, being upset that I couldn't seem to come up with anything decent. I got fed up, closed down what I was working on, opened up Synthesia, and played one of my favorite songs to play on piano (Packaged... although I edited it a little bit to split up the hands and removed the vocal part).
I finished the song, and decided to give writing another shot, so I opened up FL Studio again, started mucking around on my keyboard, and in the span of about 5-6 hours, I had a nearly 4 min piano track practically finished.
On top of that... I really, really liked it... It had a nice melody, a good progression, and I jumped a lot of hurdles that I usually stumble over when writing longer songs.
So, I added some more stuff on top, drums, a pad, and a smooth lead synth, made a few tweaks here and there... and in about 12 hours total...
...this came out:
The Journey Home
Also: Piano only version
So yeah... give it a listen, leave a review, let me know what you think.
And as always... the song is totally open to interpretation... I love hearing different peoples interpretations of my stuff.
