I’ve been streaming on Twitch since last week. Usually just an hour in the morning, doing my warmup. Sometimes also in the afternoon. I’ll make it a routine to also post the results from the warmup-session here from now on.
Several days after finishing this song, I realized my progress. I was happy with the result of this track, and I stayed happy. So, I decided to celebrate and treat myself to something extravagant. I decided to get a professional to work on the song.
Via recommendation, I found Rick Mazz of rickmazzstudios and contacted him. I was doubtful whether he would be interested in working on something so small and simple, but thankfully, Rick was open to it. He took the track, took my amateur notes on it, and did his magic. It’s incredible and eye-opening how much Rick improved the track’s sound by mixing and mastering it.
I’m very happy with how this turned out. I’m still celebrating.
I was listening to and thinking of Yann Tiersen’s “Amelie”-soundtrack when I worked on this.
I was lying awake sick for most of last night but one positive thing coming out of that is this amazing animation I was recommended by the youtube-algorithm.
This hyped me so much to pick up one of my project ideas again and pursue it further. That was the look and feel I was hoping to achieve before I discarded the project because it ballooned way too big in my head.
Give Hidari a watch, share it, like it, whatever. It needs to happen.
A friend of mine introduced the free DAW “Reaper” to me early/mid-august. Since then, I’ve been making music of all kinds. Here’s one track that was heavily inspired by Spanish Guitar music, and the game soundtrack “the Last of Us”.
