"Dandelion Nights" - Tarekith

This song initially began as a sketch on my Novation Circuit over the summer. Nothing like sitting outside and jamming out some ideas on a nice little battery-powered device like that. Especially since now that it’s cold out, I can take those sketches and use not only the sounds, but also vibe I had at the time in something a bit more fleshed out.

All the drums, percussion, bassline, and a couple of the synths were from the Circuit, recorded into Ableton Live for arranging and mixing. On top of those sounds, I overdubbed more instrument parts from the DSI OB-6, Moog Animoog, and Live’s new Wavetable synth. The mixdown was done with only Live 10’s included devices, and mastering was nothing more than DMG Audio’s Limitless plug-in on the master channel to top off a few stray peaks.

Really happy with the vibe of this song, a sort of shifting uncertainty that reflects that change from summer to fall. As always, hope you enjoy!

Quite a gentle tune, would work well as a soundtrack piece.

Great job! You don't need to know that you wrote this through the changing of the seasons, it comes through in the music.

Nice, I never know how much those kinds of intentions actually come through.

Same here, but this time for sure it sounds like slow almost glacial change, like you intended! 8)
