From a koi pond to bliss… New song out~!!

Hiya—How’s your day been-?

Wherever you are, I hope we’re all enjoying some semblance of peace for today—goes without saying this world could really use a lot more of it (T ^ T)

I just wanted to chime in today to share my first new track since mid-July: something I’ve been working on for most of the week~

I had a few working titles for this song: Window into Bliss, Peek into Ataraxia, but in the end, I settled on Dreamer’s Wonderland!

It’s another song that I wanna tie in with my current books, so when the time comes to place this on the rankings, we can talk so much more about that!

But for some quick context: my inspiration for this song came about from me tinkering with the DALL-E image generator, since I received my invite just a few days ago~

At some point, I thought of this image of me lying on a windowsill overlooking this koi pond, so I asked DALL-E to draw these, and…

Sure, none of it’s perfect, but the general aesthetic gave me this image idea for a song—Ennarin and Sakiyo pacing about a koi pond and eventually feeding the fish~

I don’t think the final output is exactly that image, but as a jumping-off point?

Heh~ Let’s just say everything came about naturally after that! =(^.^)=

Musically, this track’s also a bit unusual for me: it’s my only song composed with a BPM of 102, only the second written in the key of F# Major, and also the third or so where I challenged myself to try and create the drum beat myself…

Oh and thanks to a pitch slider with the lead clavichord, I was able to play that middle section with notes outside of the usual tonality~! Hopefully my melodies there still sound coherent-!

And yes—Clavichord! But I loved the sound of it so much that I kept adjusting it until it sounded much closer to the Chinese Yangqin (扬琴) dulcimer, which is probably one of my favourite instruments of all time~

Whether or not you’ll listen to Dreamer’s Wonderland, many thanks for just coming to check out this sudden announcement—and I hope your weekend treats you well-! ^ ^

Any and all support is greatly-appreciated~!

All the love to ‘ya! ʕ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʔ
