Unexpected Demo

07:23 PM

The melody for this song came to me very unexpectedly (hence the title). I was just playing the piano and I didn’t intend to write a new song at all, but suddenly I was playing the basic melody of this song. I had to extend it of course into a full song. But it took me a while to finish the demo. Now, I’d like to let you listen to it. Please let me know what you think of it, for example by posting a comment with this post.

Hope in the Shadow Demo

02:27 PM

During the past couple of weeks, I was unable to play the piano as my right arm was in a sling. However, I did attempt to create a new bass line using only my left hand. I intended to use that bass line for a new song at a later time. The past few days, I have indeed extended this bass line into a new song titled “Hope in the Shadow”.

My feelings while writing this song matches what I felt during the past few weeks. Even though I was very limited as I couldn’t use my right arm, I knew that is was only temporary. Writing that bass line gave me hope and the knowledge that I would be able to write again in a couple of weeks. And that is what I did.

I’d really like to hear what you think of this song.

End To Loneliness Demo

05:16 PM

When starting on this song, I wanted to write a song about how two lonely people meet. At first they try to get to know each other and slowly discover that they can make an end to their loneliness together. I hope that the song conveys this. I wrote this song in December 2011.

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.

Why Do I Love You So Much? Demo

06:35 PM

This is the first song that immediately put lyrics in my mind while writing the melody. During the chorus, I clearly heard the text “Why do I love you such? Is it the way of your touch?” Hence the title. Unfortunately, I am not such a good text writer, so I never managed to get past those two lines and I even have some doubts about the second line. What is clear to me however is that this is not a song about the negative side of why I love someone so much, but actually about he positive side of the question. I wrote the song in September 2011.

Spring Morning Demo

05:29 PM

In the spring of 2011, I wrote a small song called Spring Morning. It was on a lovely sunny day, one of the first days of the year where the sun really had enough strength to make it nicely warm outside. After a walk, I discovered the basic melody for this song sitting behind the piano.

I extended this song to a demo using a keyboard and software instruments in Logic Pro 9 at the end of 2011.
