City of Dreams

Get Flash to see this player.

This song is a combination of two other songs I made called "Keep On Going" (which I'll eventually post on here) and "Charlotte". This song is basically about having a dream and having to go to a "big" city or anywhere far from home to possibly have that dream come true, but on your journey towards that dream you have a lot of obstacles that get in the way, and make you think that your dream may not come true. The purpose of the telephone sounds in this song is to represent "rejection" or "not making a connection" or having to keep trying at something in order to get closer and closer to your dream whatever it may be.
I made this on GarageBand. I used the keyboard on my laptop to record the synths and stuff with the "on screen keyboard" that's available on Garage Band. The only thing that I didn't create was the drum loops and a few of the effects, they were already available on GarageBand.

This sounds really nice! I know what it's like to only be able to use your mac's keyboard (did it for four years before getting my first midi keyboard). You're doing an awesome job! Keep it up!! =)
