Today’s video is a good demonstration of why choice of instruments matters. It’s my latest composition, a Safe Room theme called ‘Time to Rest’. I’d been working on this for a few days with piano as the main instrument but wasn’t satisfied with that version. I decided today to rework the whole thing after finding a synth preset that grabbed my attention. I then performed both parts and put them together in this video.
It’s interesting for me how finding that particular synth sound changed my perception of the piece – I hadn’t intended it to sound sci-fi originally, but it sounds so right like this. I’ll definitely explore more sounds with future compositions before settling on a final version.
I hope you enjoy it as something to relax to!
