- Endless Circle
Popcorn – you know when you make popcorns on the stove? First almost no sounds, nothing, then you can hear the oil heating up, then, oh, one pop. Then another, and suddenly some more, then more, and more, and more, and just crazy popping all over the place, then again, slowing down, to almost nothing, and then, nothing… and if you do not remove the pot from the stove, you’ll start to smell the burned popcorn.
Unify – bass for the win! And oh, the distant piano. All the digital, static sounds are mixed with the organics of the voices. Even if they too are computer generated, I wanted to get that organic feeling and create the tension between the two worlds. To unite them into one unity.
Reunion – I often think that I would like to reunite with the music I grew up with, in the 80’s and 90’s, but at the same time, I do not want to relive it, so I figured I would walk down the memory lane soundwize for a short reunion. Another reunion in this song is the secondary melody. When part of the first melody, it feels sad. But repeated on its own, with different supporting elements, it gets happier. Then again, reunited with the first melody and the same effect is one more achieved.
Endless Circle – a circle has no end, according to a character in a famous book, that recently made it to a TV-series. A great one I might add. Again, a little inspired from the previous song, I choose some sounds from the past. And I made a static bass, representing the curved line leading back to itself. 88 BPM to represent infinity. Wanted to go for 80, but it got too slow.
