I've always been a big fan of Christmas music. Something about this time of year just lends itself to jolly tunes that bring joy to people's hearts. I was inspired to try my hand at coming up with some Christmas music. Starting with the title track, Here Comes Christmas, I was encouraged to produce some recordings of some traditional classics as well. These included Good King Wenceslas, We Three Kings and Auld Lang Syne, as well as an instrumental piece entitled Snowflake/Santa's Workshop.
I wanted to keep the songs playful and imaginative, so I incorporated sound effects and comic ideas into some of the songs. This is most prominent on Snowflake/Santa's Workshop, which includes howling winds and elf workshop sounds (which were a lot of fun to record in my garage)! The drunken rendition of Auld Lang Syne was a lot of fun too.
I think my personal favourite track was Good King Wenceslas, which represented a major departure from the original song, a much more lively up tempo version with a sort of jazzy vibe to it.
I hope you enjoy these Christmas songs. I'd like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
