Alven. (River Song) by Tunesmithy.

Submitted by: Phil S.

Original Song

The song deals with finding contentment through loss. Sometimes we are close to someone and suddenly they are not there. The river is the means of taking a message of hope . A dream song.
I wanted the song to also convey a visual image. I composed the song and then arranged it for a small chamber group. We recorded it separately in stages in lockdown. I slowly built up the arrangement through multi track studio techniques.I then made the film animation with Matt Sandbrook who in turn created a lovely filmic animation. After the initial sketches I edited the film .. I tend to enjoy writing and creating visual music with film which conveys a message, a feeling and a emotional response from the listener or viewer. The song nevertheless has a positive message of beauty in the world.
