Description
This is a brand new a song about "Arising" from the ashes of my destruction by my own hand with alcohol and celebrating my sobriety. Enjoy :)

(Been working on this one for about 4 days now, me playing piano and strings in Ableton. One of the best I've done in awhile, it's short only 3 minutes. Let me know if you like. I will be doing more like it.) -Chris

...feel. Not sensing much form here, but a lot of energetic chording and repeated patterns that are full of life and surprises. The strings kind of power through chordal material maybe a little harshly. Just back off the "presence" and slide in a tad more reverb and you'll be there. I very much enjoy the energy and insistence in this track, but long for maybe a little bit more nuanced playing and dynamics. Everything doesn't have to be forte! ... I am enjoying hearing your work and the exciting places you are going.

Thanks Paul, Was hoping you would like this one. :) This song is about doing the total unexpected in each measure of what the ear expects to hear. Thanks you are right, someday I will add some more dynamics to it and add some more reverb. I had some trouble post producing this for awhile, because when I had more reverb I was worried people wouldn't be able to hear the chord progressions/counterpoints of the strings and piano because they were shrouded in echoes so I used a predelay, but not sure if it sounds right. Cheers good to see you back at MJ! -Chris

A spontaneous
improvisational quality to this. Certainly points to the heavens.
Sounds like you might have quantized this. I’d like it a bit looser but still much enjoyed.
Cheers,
Charlie

Hmm yes I did, you caught me red handed!
I usually hate quantizing but I thought I'd try it and see if people liked it. Okay great my friend I will try playing it with yours and Paul's suggestions. Less presence, more reverb and no quantizing :D
Thanks Charlie

The full chords suggest strength, the lighter notes on top suggest joy. The strings are uplifting. Altogether, it does what you want it to - celebrates a new life. Much enjoyed!

Thanks Phillip :)
Glad you liked it. I think I've heard it so many times post producing that I started to hate it. That ever happen to you?

That ever happened to you
"Hate" might be a bit strong, but I do get sick of some songs and stop listening to them...

There's a brittleness to the raw energy expressed here that's edgy. Sometimes that's the kind of music we need to make .. to let it flow out in a torrent .. without regard to the polishing that takes the edge away. Especially if that helps with sobriety .. then by all means make more music like this.
