Only Youtube and Soundcloud left!

Gotta wait until Friday though :/ I really wait can’t wait to share this brand new mix with you all!

Tomorrow I’m revealing what song was chosen for this special single mix. Any guesses? In the meantime, listen to the Chapter I album!

 



Here I am, back with more info of the third single of my EP, Chapter I, coming August 19!

So, the single won't be just taken from the album and call it a day. The song chosen has received some special treatment, getting a whole new mix. Here's some info I can say so far:

  • The arrangement has changed: this mix has its drums and percussion emphasized
  • Some new vocal arrangement has been done as well
  • But it's not like I completely transformed the song: it still has the overall identity from the original version. However, I believe it's a whole new take on it.

Here's a sneak peek on its production. You have any guesses of what song this is? Try listening to the album for you to have an idea!

Hello everyone! Here, I wrote down a list of trivia from the development and creation of my debut EP, Chapter I. If you haven't listened to it, here it goes! Hope you enjoy it :)

<a href="http://pedroanderson.bandcamp.com/album/chapter-i">Chapter I by Pedro Anderson</a>
  • The album is called Chapter I because it's my first album (don't tell me), and because I feel it's the true beginning of my life in music, even if I released a few songs some years ago on the internet.
  • It was nearly entirely recorded on March-May 2015, with the exception of Horizons: its background vocals were recorded back in 2012, by my singing teacher at the time.
  • The project originally had nine songs, and was called Quest To Infinity. One of the four cut songs shared its title with the album. Why I cut these songs? I felt my vocals, melodies and lyrics weren't good. I do like the instrumentals I made for them, though, and might use them in future projects. When did I cut them? After releasing the first single.
  • The gap between the release of Self-Destruct and Going Away as singles (5 months), and then the gap between Going Away and the album (9 months) is because I was unsure on how to release these songs after cutting those four songs. Going Away was released at a time I planned to release all five songs separately.
  • If I went through with this plan, Robot would be the third single and released probably in April 2016.
  • By the time I recorded it, Going Away had a completely different instrumental, with no synthpop elements. I changed it for its release because I truly hated it after revisiting it to edit the song.
  • Going Away had a working title of This Is It, and became This Is It (Going Away) until I decided to release it.
  • Robot almost was released as (Sounds Like) I Am A Robot, but I kept it as Robot because the other title was too long. (but Trapped In A Void (Unknown Land) isn't, right? Go figure)
  • Self-Destruct was originally called Self-Destruction Program back when I was writing it.
  • The "Unknown Land" in the title of Trapped In A Void (Unknown Land) was added because of how many times those words are repeated in the song.
  • Horizons probably has the longest story. Back in my earliest album projects from when I was a teen, a song named Horizons Of A Love was listed. I also wrote the chord progression back then in my grandmother's piano. (it was originally going to be a piano ballad)
  • Ultimately, I changed it to a electronic, triphop ballad, wrote its lyrics and did the first recording of it in 2012. In 2015, I recorded it once again with revised lyrics.
  • The ocarina solo in it is inspired by the usage of the instrument in The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time.
  • While I'm talking about inspirations, here's a Spotify playlist of songs that inspired me in the making of Chapter I.

That's it! Stay tuned for information on the release of the third single!


Chapter I is getting one more single!

If you haven't listened to it yet, here's Chapter I! Do you have any bets on what song will become a single?

Also, I recently released a second single from the album here on Newgrounds! Here's "Going Away":

I hope you guys enjoy listening to Chapter I as much I enjoyed making it!



I wrapped up recording on three songs today, that will be on my first album. Hopefully I will be able to share all the songs with you all soon! Self-Destruct is just one of the nine songs that will be in it.

One of the songs that I recorded today shares its title with the album itself. More information about it will be coming soon :)
