More Than I Realised

My new composition: More Than I Realised. I waited for this moment more than 2 years and today I decided to start to compose the new album. I thought that would be a different project until yesterday but sometimes the real live is the best composer. It will be long and beautiful journey and I’m going take you with me to the secret music world. In this song you can find some inspiration from the Steve Reich.

Composition process

  • 2017-06-18 First part
  • 2017-06-20 Second part
  • 2017-06-21 Vocal rewrited in the second part and added Tingsha bells
  • 2017-06-23 First 2 phrases on the guitar fretless corrected. Replaced fretless guitar in the second part.
  • 2017-06-24 Added cello in the second part and strings/choir at the end of the second part
  • 2017-06-24 Third part. The dark side. It is so powerful but also so dengerous. Follow the voice not the shadows.
  • 2017-06-24 Back to the 2 parts. I listened 3rd part many times and it was too sad too deep and too dark. This is not kind of emotions I wish in this composition. So I will go in the other direction. If you wish to listen to the deleted part – let me know. But I’m warning you it is realy deep and dark and you will listen to it on your own responsibility.
  • 2017-06-25 Finaly third part is rewrited. It is quiet and soulful guitar solo with the few little refferences.
  • 2017-06-26 I decided that this composition will contains 3 parts. So it’s done. Now I need to record it with the real instruments and it always means that composition will be changed a lot:)
  • 2017-06-27 Preparing score for the piano recording session.
  • 2017-06-28 There will be probably fourth part. We will see.
  • 2017-06-30 Added epic tombak track played by Arsam Babaei (Iran) and there will be the fourth part and much more. First part is shorter and new version will be added later (at the begin again;) – in progress.
  • 2017-07-02 Mixed all three parts.
  • 2017-07-04 After 6 hours of work I finally added fourth part. This is something really different and it was inspired by my last few days and the new music I discovered. Now I’m going to listen to it 10 or 20 times and when I will wake up tomorrow I will know leave it or no;) In this part I play on the Yamaha Acousting guitar with the special tuning: D, A, G, D, G, G.
  • 2017-07-06 I removed fourth part but I left few percussion notes at the end. It makes this composition a little bit suspended… but open new door for the next compositions from this project. I need some time to think about it. But… this is not the end. The next goal is to record the real piano and we will see what will happen:)
  • 2017-07-12 Piano recording planed for the next week.
  • 2017-07-15 There will be the next long fourth part with the persian Kamancheh/Kamalin.
  • 2017-07-16 Updated real piano in the first part. Played by Michał Ruksza.
  • 2017-07-16 You are in the cave, alone and it is dark. Suddenly you see the little light and you start to looking for them. Every time you found it you see something beautiful. But remember follow the lights not the dark side which is very close, be careful. It is like the life we have and path through it. Be happy of going nowhere just feel the everything you see. This is the fourth part.
  • 2017-07-18 Small corrections: I changed it a little bit piano in the first part and recorded it again with the Yamaha grand piano and I added some little space space after third part.
