It’s official, I have just uploaded the new song on Youtube.
As you can hear, the song is more personal. It’s addressing the inner conflict and insecurity of every creative out there. I’m sure we can all relate to the feeling of not being sure that what you’ve written is the best you can come up with.
This song promotes the freedom of expression and lifting the restrictions from your creativity.
On a technical level, I think I did pretty well, although I have a few minor slip ups, I think I’m getting back in shape. I’ve recorded it using the stacked technique, in which you set the timer on repeat and you record the song quatrain by quatrain, doing at least 5 takes for each quatrain. After you’re done with the last quatrain, you browse through every take and choose the best ones.
On a lyrical level, this song follows a pre-written argument, so there’s more structure to it content wise. What I do is I count the bars and list the structure in terms of verses and chorus repetition. Once I know how long is the verse/chorus, I assign a general topic for each verse, after which I assign a sub-topic for each quatrain. This way the argument is structured.
On a mixing level, I think I should’ve increased the level of the chorus, but it’s all over now.
On a marketing level, I’m not going to do anything since I’m still getting back in shape. I’m just showing it to you guys and to the people on Facebook/Twitter. I’ll get into marketing my songs once I feel that my skills are at an optimal level.
I hope you liked the song man, what do you think about it, talk to me.
