Electronic / Synth version of the 1861 Christmas Tune (Hymn). I took some liberties with phrasing in the melody to make it sound more like EDM. I think a lot of the phrasing was in consideration of the lyrics, and since this has no lyrics, I wanted to change it to emphasize the beautiful melody. Listen or buy HERE.
This is the first “traditional” blues song that I wrote. The knocking sound at 3:32 was interesting. I searched for an hour looking for samples of knocking, and nothing I dropped into the track sounded or worked well with the song. I grabbed my microphone, hit record, and knocked on my desk, and it ended up perfect. For the video, as usual, I just picked random open source videos to keep it interesting. Enjoy!
One of my short stories, Knock Knock Knock, was accepted to be published in an anthology. These are exciting times! I am grouped in with a collection of amazing writers – I had a chance to read some of the other stories in the book and feel very honored to be included.
