When The Sun Goes Down

09:26 AM

When The Sun Goes Down I wrote this song about two months ago, before the song Empty Days. After working it out and mixing it, I wasn’t pleased with it, but I couldn’t put my finger on what it was that didn’t make it work. So I set it aside. Last week, I went back to this song as a friend of mine asked me if I didn’t have more happy songs. I redid the whole song, chose other instruments and mixed it again. I then waited a couple of days to make sure I was happy with this version and I am pleased to say that I am.

The song is heavily influenced by my love for Irish music, though there is also a hint of Eastern influences. I hope you like it.

I named it “The Irish Gene” as Frances Black once told me that I must have something Irish in me, seeing how much I am influenced by and love Ireland and its culture. However, as far as I know my family is 100% Dutch. So maybe there exists something like an gene that makes one love Ireland and I have it.

Longing for Spring Demo

05:03 PM

After writing the melody for this song, I reminded me a bit of the song Spring Morning which I had written earlier. Not the same, but kind of a prelude to that song. Hence I named it “Longing for Spring”. I wrote this song in November 2011.

Omnious Demo

01:17 PM

I wrote this song called Omnious around May 2011. The whole day, I had this strange anxious and nervous feeling, like something weird was about to happen. This somehow influenced me when playing around on the piano resulting in the melody of this song.
