- - Track Notes - -

For the past months I had little time to work on any music, and ideas for this project just kept piling onto each other until I found a direction I was happy with. Winter is my favorite season. It can be hostile and violent, but also beautiful. I wanted to infuse the song with this contrast if I could. Inspiration sources that got me started were pretty diverse to say it mildly. "Pluvius Aestivus" by Pain of Salvation was one of my main references (good for both the rain and the snow IMO). Melody-wise, I listened to a bunch of video game songs for winter/snowy levels, even our good Stemage's "Winter" track from his magnificent Alpha Squad OST (that I highly recommend by the way). The jig idea sort of came naturally after settling for a ternary time-signature. Anyway, I'm very happy I could be a part of this compilation, and I hope this song contributes to making your winter better!

Composition methods:
Cubase (sequencing + mixing)
FM8 (Native Instruments) (rendering of all FM synthesis sounds)
Chipsounds (Plogue) (rendering of pulse and noise sounds)
Halion 5 (Steinberg) (lo-fi drums samples)
