Lonely Heart


“Lonely Heart was something that just came to me after throwing away three other tracks that sounded like I was trying too hard to get it right. I recorded the main melody on my iPhone first so I wouldn't forget it, and then recorded the complete song in about 3 hours using Ableton Live's Session view. My workflow is to lay out the song in clips on the session view and then record them to the arrangement view. This time I  found myself doing a lot more rearranging at the end, moving whole parts around, adding new transitions, and even adding a part. I can't really say where it draws its influences from because I've been listening to, and making, electronic music for a very long time. I've got a lot of musical influences, from classic rock to metal to early electronic stuff by Kraftwerk and early Depeche Mode. ”
