I started out writing this piece as an attempt to set my lyrics to music. I used a program called Music Masterworks from Aspire Software, without benefit of a midi keyboard, being too cheap to invest in one.
As it turned out, I became so engrossed in making up variations to the music that I never got around to matching the music to the lyrics. However, I later submitted those lyrics to a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation contest, and was fortunate enough to have them chosen by Michael Occhipinti, a highly regarded recording artist from Toronto, to be set to his music. The song, along with all the other contest winning music was made into a CD called "All for a Song," and is being sold on the CBC website.
I'm not very satisfied with the drum track at the beginning of this piece, but
the slow introduction needs something to add a bit of tension and excitement. Any suggestions would be welcomed.
