I´m replying myself because i missed the explanation part… Composition Process My first step was to consolidate the structure. Thinking about it I knew i wanted to create a story, I love film scoring so i really like to tell a story with my music. I found Elsasollesvik’s voice very soft and warmy so I instantly thought about a mother hanging her child huming a sweet Lullaby at home who was getting sleep slowly start to having a diferent musical trip dream. Intro So I started to create a quite room ambience with a clockwork tapping the track tempo with a musicbox playing a bed song. Freesound.org is my favourite sound samples website, there I found the musicbox starting engine, and the clockwork. The voice track it’s amazing as Elsasollesvik’s made it, but i was looking for something more similar than a hum, so I edited the voice finding the actual intro voice hum but keeping it dry. The musicbox starting was amazing on that position but I had to create a musicbox melody. Musicbox from Spitfire LABS it really fit for me, they actually have an amazing bunch of free plug-ins, absolutely recommended. I automized both tracks (Voice & Music box) progressively merging with a reversed cinematic kick hit as the transition to the verse. The Reverb Aux insert i´m using for the diferent sections is Valhalla Vintage, i´m totally in love with it! Verse This part should was very quiet and progressive so i compose a piano melody with plug-in Cinematic Soft Piano from Spitfire. The voice changes to the original sample but with a lowpass EQ quitely distanced with reverb, because we are passing through the child’s dream. I used again Spitfire LABS but with a synth pad playing a secondary melody and complementing the piano as well. I always find amazing to reverse cuts from a few rendered tracks, i think it keeps the listener linked to the song, so i did it with some piano octaves. At the final part of the verse i added a warped synth bass loop from Spitfire audio Albion One to prepare the entrance of the first chorus with a Timpani progressive percussion as transition. Chorus 1 I kept the piano melody but with a diferent progression (F, G, A) until the end of the track. As you could listen the clockwork track is still there, but on this part i wanted te progressively merge it to a designed clap track (5 diferent claps with Valhalla Vintage and a bit of Delay) and the clockwork would softly disappear. I used heavyocity Damage for the principal percussion, reversing some kicks for the transition to the last chorus. This part has a automized Tremolo Strings Track to start creating emotion. Chorus 2 & Ending I added a few stacatto Mid/High/Low Strings section from Spitfire audio Albion One Orchestra and a Cristal Pad track from Evolve Mutations Library from Native Instruments. I went harder with that stacatto Strings to create tension and for the end a Cello from Best Service Emotional Cello plugin. Mixing I processed almost all tracks with EQ and Compression (SSL2+ EQ & SSL2+Comp) organized in the following instrument/stem sections: -Strings Bus -Percussion Bus -FX’s Bus -Piano Bus -Voice Bus I created a Reverb Aux (Valhalla Vintage as insert) for each section as well and a common Convolution Reverb from Convology XT. For the Strings and Percussion sections i added CLA-2A and CLA-76 from Waves to find a better attachment in the final mix. All tracks were automized trying to create more feeling and my Mix Peak was exactly -4,32 dBs. Master: I used a few Waves inserts for the Master Track: -SSL Master Buss Compressor -GW MixCentric -MaxxBass -Virtual Tape Machine (Slate Digital) -C6 (Multiband Comp) -L1 Limiter (-0,5 Out ceiling/ -2.0 Threshold) Everything was done in Reaper mixed with Audiotechnica ATH-M50X and Mackie CR4 Studio Monitor. And i forgot to mention I designed a track as the Musicbox atmosphere (created with Kinetic Treats from Native instruments) that takes place from the beginning to the end. Thank you so much for reading this amazing process!
