about

When I decided to do a podcast, I knew that I wanted to compose its theme song. I love composing jazz and music-for-purpose so I decided to go with something that would represent the podcast tonally: cute, melodic, and colorful. I had just woken up from a nap and recorded myself singing a little head on my phone, and frankly, I just put it into Garageband from there with some minor alterations and built the harmony behind it.

Being a percussionist I felt the vibraphone would be a great timbre to open up with every week - it's programmed, but Garageband has enough fidelity to sound great, I think, and I made sure to add little flourishes and timing/dynamic shaping. I modeled much of the piano solo on Snarky Puppy solos - none I can remember specifically, but Cory Henry's influence is always present when I am writing for keyboard.

Drums were engineered, recorded, and mastered by myself.
