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.
