This song started off as a simple piano melody that came about through experimentation. We realized that this melody had quite a bit of potential so we adapted the piano melody into four measures and began to build a drum pattern around it. The adapted melody was a bit odd so we decided against using a 4x4 drum pattern and instead went for a hip hop style beat. However we wanted to keep the melodic feel of the song and due to the fact that hip hop is not usually very melodic when it comes to the synths, we decided to make electronic trap. We heavily emphasized the guitar and cellos during the build up to show the two different melodies that were playing and allow the listener to differentiate the two while also emphasizing the bells during the climax to continue the melodic feeling of the song and take away some of the emphasis on the lead. We wanted to use a lighter saw type lead because of this and even filtered out some of the low end so that the bass and kick could shine through while also sidechaining the kick to every synth, bass, and effect in the song.
