Wedding Song

Wedding Song

Last weekend my cousin Saara got married. My congrats to her. A few months ago she asked me if I could play the piano in the church as a part of the ceremony. I said of course and put the date in my calendar. I started to work on the song a couple of weeks ago but progress was slow. Luckily I finished the song just in time two weeks ago and named it Aalloilla (On the waves) to remind of the ups and downs of human relationships.

Aalloilla is a piano only song with strong classical influences. Contrary to my usual practice, this song was recorded with a single take straight to audio from my synth (normally I compose in MIDI and let the sequencer do the playing). Check it out from the music page and let me know what you think. It has been a while I have composed a solo instrument song.

PS.
If you wonder why I haven't posted anything in a long time, I have been really busy with my school work. I think the amount of code I produce is inversely proportional to the amount of music I write. :)

Damn, you're good! I still admire your songs "Below The Arctic Ocean" and "The Dance Of The Oracle", I even found it at Jamendo in my Rhythmbox.

I usually listen to these two when I code in Rails/Java. It helps me focus and cut off the noise around me.

Now the last one ("Aalloilla") is so classic and tranquil. Can you please record it once again without an overdrive?

Grzegorz, thanks for your feedback.

There is no overdrive in Aalloilla. However, it is compressed quite heavily considering it is a classical song. If I get my self to it, I will send you an uncompressed version.
