Music From The Depths
When I started looking at the idea of working with a Christmas song this year, I knew this one was the one. I know that it sounds pleasant (like almost every other Christmas song), because a lot of the hymns from way back when were… But there’s a lot of unseen depth to this one.
About fourteen years ago I wrote a song that only four people heard. This week I decided to rework it for the podcast.
I started this song fully intending to make it a nice, calming, happy mix. The end result was something different. I thought about rewriting it, but sometimes we need the honest soundtrack for what is really going on around us.
A semi-cinematic, somewhat dark, ambient soundscape.
This episode is a little different from the previous editions, and it’s a lot more musical. I was asked to create something to help fight anxiety, but the original track I made just wasn’t right. I wrote and rewrote this release a few times, but I’m happy with where it landed. I know we’re surrounded by chaos right now, but I hope this helps.
In this episode I look back through old work and give it new life. There are bits from video and game soundtracks, unreleased and unheard music. Styles range from ambient to upbeat electronic.
Every month I’ll be releasing at least two mixes of original music. To do that, I’ll dig into the music I made a long time ago, and some that I’ve written more recently. I’ll probably have an occasional guest, too. Style-wise, these will often be ambient, atmospheric, soundscapes. But I also have a weak spot for intricate, glitchy, granular drums. And since I’ve written in a lot of styles, there’s no telling where each mix will go.
