Track Description : Hymn to celebrate life and brotherhood.
My Creative Vision : For this entry, I started with the idea of an orchestral hymn, and looking for an inspiring emotion I thought about the event that would generate that feeling of “something huge and transcendental is happening”. And, of course, the end of the pandemia is in the first place of this events. From that point of departure I focused on the emotion of the first day without the fear, without the restrictions. The return of the freedom to choose what you want to do without taking into account the “covid factor”.
Then I gathered some guide lines:
- Grandious orchestral brasses and strings.
- Hope, joy, deep emotion, activity, community.
- Sense of tradition, history, universality, maybe folk sounds.
Composition Overview : Beforehand, it seemed to be a hard job trying to mix all these ingredients, but surprisingly, my light bulb flashed. In a couple of days, the whole song was composed, arranged, mixed and mastered (as well done as I can :P). And the result was in itself very inspiring to me, so I felt the need to add a video following the emotional journey of the song. Again, in a couple of days I chose some video scenes and mounted them with the music. Then, this new work kept on asking me to go beyond and lyrics started to spill over me. Finally, I added lyrics as subtitles in the video.
This time I prefer not to speak much about the structure, instruments and evolution of the song, because I think there are some unspected roads that make the music more interesting, so NO SPOILER
I can say that, as usual, I have tried to put into practice new creative tools for me, and this month I can add some video skills such as where to find free to use scenes for my music, how to add subtitles, and some others.
I don’t know if you will like my idea for the contest but I must say that I feel deeply happy. It has been one of these times when everything goes so fluidly that scares, and you see the final product goes further than your espectations. I supose it is what classic artist called “the muses visit you”. In my case, it is something that happens from time to time, and I just didn’t remember my last visit (some of you, friends, seem to share your flat with a docen of muses all the time, jejejeje). This obsessive, endorfine-rich state made me replay the song over and over inside my brain for several days. That’s the way I want to feel with every project.
I hope you enjoy it.
