Today I’m ready to introduce you my new song with a simple but very thoughtful title “TIME”.
Work on the composition continued for a month. The melody and lyrics were written relatively quickly, but the vocal part turned out to be unexpectedly complicated – the issue was not even in the high key of the track, but in the motive itself and the chanted notes, which I certainly wanted to bring vibrato to. I spent four big recording sessions while making vocals, spent a huge amount of time choosing successful takes, processing and mixing them. Now you can listen to the result of my efforts on my website.
As in all my creative work, I continue to share with you the most cherished and hidden things I have – my thoughts and inner world. In a new song I raise the topic about eternal and unequal struggle of Man against Time. Since long ago, people have been looking for ways to subdue time: alchemy was looking for an elixir of eternal youth, scientists tried to understand the secrets of time matter, science fiction dreamed of inventing a time machine and return to the past. No matter how much we want it, all life on earth is mortal and man is no exception. However we constantly postpone everything: a trip to visit our parents, buying something pleasant, fulfilling an old dream, or just meeting a good friend. But what’s the most important – we forget that time is the same for everyone, and one day you may not have a chance to finish your plan, and eventually come to an empty parental house, face a lack of former energy to carry out your ideas, or have no time to tell your loved ones they are important. From the very beginning I wanted this song to be perfect, because I wrote it in memory of my dad, who passed away on March 24, 2020.
My song is a reminder that life is fleeting. Appreciate every day you live and properly manage time allotted to us.
