    Anthem of the night

    It took me 2+ months to write this and 5 days to record, mix & master it.

    ANTHEM OF THE NIGHT

    ANTHEM OF THE NIGHT version 2 changed the percussion and changed the levels on the Violins, French Horns and the synth bass tracks.

    ANTHEM OF THE NIGHT ~ version 3 with guitars

    GPO:

    Cellos
    Violas
    Violins
    French Horns
    Trumpets

    Synthesizer tracks:

    Yamaha So8
    Other synth tracks from a Korg library, Legacy Cell and Wave Station

    Guitars:

    Fender P-Bass
    Fender Telecaster

    I dug it. Kinda has a Vangelis vibe going on.

    I think the two things I'd like to hear would be some kind of dynamic contrast or a thinning out of the texture somewhere along the way and less reliance on the boom-chuck percussion.

    Nice job,

    Thanks J.

    I love Vangelis's old work and most of my songs have that feel to them.

    I'll play around on the mixing board and change the eq on the percussion track and see what happens.

    Vangelis is definitely a name that comes to mind. I like how it repeats the same rhythm and step direction over and over on top of a shifting harmony. It could benefit from a break to a very different texture, though, just to shift the listener's expectation. I could also imagine it building up in a slow crescendo. Then again, like this it has a slightly hypnotic quality. I like the small decorations. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks SD. The fun part of this track was me playing the Violas, French Horns, Violins and Trumpets the same, with some small changes on the fly since I record everything live. It took four takes to get the notes just right on the Trumpets and three takes for the Violins. All the others were one take.

    Version #2 is the one I am going with.

    I wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed this. Definitely has some of that Vangelis sound. It reminded me of the music he wrote for the (hard to find) documentary Antarctica. Great job!!!

    Re: Anthem of the night

    I like it--listened to both versions just now. It's very relaxing, and who doesn't love old-school synths?

    You said you changed the levels of the horns, but I'm not sure if they went up or down... bring 'em up more!
