Reflection

Hey Friends!

Here’s another brand new one for you! This one’s an ambient track with a fair bit of an electronic element that I call, Reflection. This one was originally created for a client’s video game but it was ultimately rejected because of it’s percussion. Once I realized it wasn’t going to be used for anything I sat down with it and thought to myself, “What’s this song’s purpose going to be? What can this song become?” That’s when it hit me that this song, with it’s soft ambient synth pads and hand drums, conjures an environment of self-reflection.

Do your past actions represent the version of yourself you wish to be? Have there been many situations in the recent past where you could have acted more appropriately? Are you currently taking the time to pursue your passions and dreams to live the life you’ve set out to live?

These are all profoundly important questions we never allow ourselves to ask as often as we should. Reflection is an important tool that we need to be consciously aware of and to use it as much as possible. The only person who has the power to keep you on track is you.

Reflect upon your life as you listen to this song and see if anything comes up. I know that my day has been significantly changed now that I’ve taken the time and I hope that your day can be changed too.

Enjoy your time with your thoughts and hopefully you enjoy the song as well!

Yoga Intro

Here’s my first attempt at making a song for the specific purpose of moving your body along to it. It was inspired with the practice of Yoga in mind. My personal favourite aspect of Yoga is the slower more laid back style, so I created sounds to complement those movements. I love the calming feeling that purposely slowing down your body has on the rest of your inner systems. Slowing your breathing, slowing your heart rate, slowing your mind… It’s such an enjoyable state to be suspended in. If you’ve never had the chance to take a Yoga class, I highly recommend you add that to the very top of your to-do list. You’ll be glad you did!

To make this piece I used a synth pad (it took me forever to find one that felt right), meditation bells (high and low), a middle eastern drum, and just your regular run-of-the-mill kick drum. They blend together for this warm and cuddly soft piece of music I cleverly named ‘Yoga Intro’.

Enjoy!
