Transitions in life, a new season.
Farewell to a friend who started
a new chapter in their life.
Chapter IV is the first outcome of my artistic collaboration with a musician and producer Theo Keys, inspired by and written to a common friend of ours in 2019.
The song deals with shifting seasons in life and starting a new chapter.
Whether being a small or big change in life circumstances, Chapter IV is a hopeful and uplifting song for all of us in transitions in life.
Chapter IV was co-written in the autumn 2019, and performed in September at Viinikahvila Pausa, Helsinki. Originally written as a piano-saxophone duo, it was further arranged and produced by Theo to a full band arrangement. The recording of the song was then carried out during the summer of 2020 and was released in Jan 2021 as a self published debut single of the duo thus born in the process.
THESE WERE SOME MAJOR LEARNINGS OR POINTS I WANTED TO CALL OUT
Co-writing with another musician
Composing alone for the majority of my projects, including another creative mind in the process was a much welcomed change!
Working together with musical ideas and getting things done probably much quicker than alone - were some good takeouts form this collaboration.
Writing an instrumental
pop tune >
Even though coming from a pop-jazz background and composing for several years, this was the first composition of that genre. Enjoyed a lot working with this melodic and harmonic content.
