Ep. 31: Instrumental “Slumberland” (Music for an Introspective Film Scene)

For today‚Äôs episode, I’m sharing with you a instrumental piano piece I starting writing back when I was about 14. It’s actually one of my first pieces of music. Over the years, I’ve modified it a bit and added parts to make it longer but the main theme has stayed about the same.

About a year ago, I decided it would be a good idea to record it in case any film makers wanted to use it for a scene. I kind of imagine it being a used for an introspective sequence like if one of the characters were laying in bed about to fall asleep or someone has a relative pass away and they are trying to cope with the loss.

I recorded it with the upright piano in our living room. I added some string and ethereal sounding parts with the keyboard along with melodica part to add some texture (which sounds a bit like an accordion).

I’m pleased with the way it turned out. Hopefully one day, I’ll be able to get it into a movie!
