I am pleased to be able to share another song with you. This one is called Sailing on the Sunset. I wrote this song a few years ago, but only recently have I felt that I had the production skill to mix, master, and release this song in an official capacity. This song is now available on iTunes and Amazon.
When I set out to write Sailing on the Sunset, I had a very clear image in my mind of a sailboat sitting on the ocean. I am West Coast, born and raised, so the sunset on the water was a familiar bit of imagery. In writing the song, I made it a point to match sounds to what I could see in my head, and so you get various fades, stutters and glitches. These represent the clarity or brokenness of the reflection of the sunset on the water’s surface. At the end of the song, I set out to simulate dropping a big rock onto the surface, breaking up the reflection into little bits. Trying to convey all of this in audio form was a fun challenge and you may not even be able to put that sort of visual to the song, but I hope you enjoy the song anyway.
Special thanks to my friend Michele for supplying the amazing photo of a sunset on the ocean. The image was such a great fit for what was in my head, and I am proud to collaborate on a project with her again.
