Yep. As I have mentioned many weeks ago (whoops to the lack of updating) I was writing a song. I finished it quite a while ago but I was too lazy and I’m only posting it now. Sorry. Haha.
Anyways it’s called “I’ll keep trying for you" and it’s totally Coldplay-inspired. idk, but it feels like that to me. A really soft, mellow kind of song. idk. Listen and let me know what you think! LOL.
Edit: and YES I learnt a bit of guitar over the summer! And this piece was entirely written using the guitar. Super cool right? I know. I’m so excited to experiment and stuff hehe.
AND I’M ALSO DOING A VIDEO FOR #CALL ME MAYBE
(see my awesome acting skills there? ;))
So I came back home today from a vacation trip. On the way back from the airport I was listening to Carly Rae Jepson’s Call Me Maybe - and straight after I arrived home I had to record it. Haha. So here’s a little something! It’s not the best but I had fun doing it :P
Enjoy guys! :)
Inspired from my endless passion with Coldplay <3
I will update on things soon! :D
Hi guys! It’s been a while since I last updated anything haha. Just a little peek-a-boo for you guys, but I’m working on my trio albums right now! :D:D I’m working really hard and probably very excited to how this will come outttt!! :D
What I’m planning to do is three albums with three totally different themes (will be revealed later :P) consisting of several originals and covers. Each will be released one month apart :) I’m thinking to release it later this year, around like September or November, since I just started with planning out and heading off for some covers (1 done, 2 in progress!! :D) and also working on my new originals (2 of ‘em!!)
So I hope you look out for me guyssss :) Thanks and I love you! <3
OMG my first sale ever on my song!!!!!
My new original (it’s not completed) but so far I’ve got a pretty good base of everything and I think it will be good with a short intro and instrumental bridge and outro and transitions :) right now it’s still quite short (2:29).
What I realized today when I was recording/mixing: headphones selection changes everything. I have three, one Apple ear-pad, one in-ear earbuds, and an over-head headphones, and today I tried every of them when I was mixing to see how the reverb and EQ sounded like - I was surprised (shocked, even!) at how much difference it made between one headphones and another. The Apple ear-pad made the reverb sounded very… narrow, idk how to explain, but it wasn’t as wide as I’d liked it to be. With the in-ear earbuds all I could hear was the vocals (exaggerated, but you know what I mean). The reverb was pretty much flat like I was in an overheated bathroom. The over-head headphones were the best, the reverb was distributed evenly at the top of my head.
So, yeah, just to keep in mind to any of those who do the mixing job out there - don’t forget to test different headphones! I know mine’s different and I’m sure so is yours :) Oh and you should also check with speakers too (haven’t done that yet, but will do that soon)
By the way, I did all the arranging this time!! I didn’t record everything though - piano was by my music teacher (cause he has all these fancy harmony thingy it was so nice I knew I couldn’t do it that well) and the guitar was by my friend Dong Heon. Just cause I can’t play guitar. The rest (bass, strings, vocals, etc etc) are all done by me! On Mixcraft 5.2 :) I’m finding it a great software :)
Anyways, I’ll be back with the final version of “Blow Your Cover” for sure! :)
So I got a new mic!! It’s a Takstar CM-450 and I love it!! Today was my first experimental kinda session doing some song covers, and omg the sound was just amazing! I’m serious.
Have a listen :) I know my mixing quality isn’t top notch, because the whole thing is totally unstable in volume and reverb lol :P but good enough. I’ll figure those settings out as I go along :)
Oh and btw, the song is Frank Sinatra’s Fly Me to the Moon :) (I’ve been into Jazz lately ehehehhehe)
So it has come to me that I need to decide what I want to do with this blog now that I’m finished with the personal project.
And what have I decided? To keep it running! Yes, so that means this is where I’m going to be posting new stuff and everything too so of course that means future projects and compositions and all those :) I’m already in the process of continuing where I left off from pp, because I know that I love music and I love singing and now I found another thing that I love which is songwriting. And well, although this blog won’t just purely be about songwriting I will continue to write songs and post here with you guys along with covers and other little things.
So who’s excited? I know I am :))
