Piano piece

Piano instrument: The Maverick (a Kontakt library). Really like it – sounds very natural, configurable without being overly complex. Love the ringing of the strings at the end, and the way you can (if you want) hear the sound of the damper pedal.

Blender / music sketch: Coming Home

Blender’s really come on since I last looked at it a year ago, so I’m trying to get to know it. Thought I’d try a really quick and dirty storyboard/previz thing – wrote a quick tune in Logic (yay harmonica yay) and then tried to illustrate it as fast as possible in Blender. Nothing’s textured, and the excessive lens flares are there out of necessity, hiding a multitude of sins… (though nothing can forgive the nasty hard edge on the nebula photo, d’oh, no time to re-render)
