during the recent projectweek at the conservatorium, i got to produce a complete song during one day. obviously, mixing took me a little longer in the end, but i also worked together with tip van den bos, another mediamusic student. it started as a song featuring vocals by els and piano by marius (both forming the group petrichor), but we ended up in this collaboration adding drums, basses, synth strings and a lot more to make this, i call it, alternative pop song.
the song is about a person who suffers from a sad mood, but is fine with it for the moment, thus has accepted this mood and has even found some kind of pleasure in it. that’s why we chose quite a quiet arrangement (tadaa!) in the verses and a rather massive broad sound for the chorusses.
