WORDS OF A REMOTE GOD
The first day of songwriting and production on “Twin Wing,” a Mother-32-based synthwave song with an accompanying homemade music video.
Watch my live performance of “Find Your Way” for solo piano, from the Final Fantasy 8 Piano Collections. Mysterious and beautiful piano music composed by Nobuo Uematsu.
Day 9 of producing my brand-new song, “Please Don’t Come Home.” Reorganizing the project, writing lyrics, and programming an analog synth solo into MIDI.
I’m struggling again with creative blocks as I try to write words to the Verses for my new song, “Please Don’t Come Home.” Follow along as I discover a slow but effective way to turn a song’s feelings into new rhyming lyrics.
Using the Moog Mother-32 analog synth to get over creative block. Coming up with ideas for a Verse to “Please Don’t Come Home.”
Slow and steady work on songwriting. Searching for a Verse and adding details to a Synth Bassline. Day 6 of producing “Please Don’t Come Home.”
The fifth day of producing my new song, “Please Don’t Come Home.” Today’s work is mostly mental, and centers around creating a sense of “departure and return” in the track.
In the fourth day of producing “Please Don’t Come Home,” I’m still experimenting with musical ideas and struggling to find a form to contain them within.
Lyrics to the song “Please Don’t Come Home,” by Remote God.
Writing a new song, Day 3. Reviewing recent inspiration, considering song structure, and searching for new ideas and sections.
