BRIGHT NIGHT: 24 Hour Song


BRIGHT NIGHT: 24 Hour Song

This is the first song I wrote and recorded/produced in less than 24 hours.

Monday night I didn't feel like falling asleep, so I got out my keyboard and started playing random stuff. I ended up playing something I liked and worked with it until I decided to go to bed. By the time I woke up the next day I had written this song. Then I spent all of Thursday working on recording it, and by the end of the day I had finished it. 

So from the time I started (approx. 10:00pm) until the time I finished it (9:30pm) it  took me about 231/2 hours, less then 24 hours!

....Here's the song I hope you like it.

    1. Thanks Peter!
      I've tons of uncompleted songs but the only ones I remember how to play are the ones I recorded, (which is about 8).

  3. I agree with Michelle! This one has a really unique feel to it!! (they all do though!)I'm definitely a fan of your compositions. =) I've had many of those late night melodies but I've never come up with something fantastical.

  5. Maybe it's just me, but for some reason this song really reminded me of Owl City. It just seemed to hold the same fanciful ambiance. Really cool, Michael!

    2. Haha, you're welcome :) What kind of keyboard do you have? Do you do all of your recording/editing on your keyboard?

    3. Actually no. The keyboard I use hooks up directly to the computer. So when I record my self playing on the keyboard the computer is recording "Midi" information. I can then take the midi information and edit every note I played. Then I use on of the many sympathizers on the program I'm using (FL Studio 10, or Music Maker17)and chose what voice to use. So if I record a melody I can then chose to make it sound like a violin piano or virtually any electronic sound. That's how I record my bass lines even though I don't play bass guitar.

    4. Got it. That's neat. What kind of keyboard do you have?

  6. I have an OLD Casio. It works for me because it has midi output and the keys are velocity sensitive.
