Freedom of Choice
This track was written in 1994 during the time I was working as an 'operator' at a radio station. To clarify what an 'operator' does, think about what a DJ does and subtract all the talking.
Some inspiration came from several artists whose music I got to hear on a regular basis (I even ended up buying their CDs) during my shifts at work. Two of these albums are: "Dreamer's Road" by Freddy Curci, and "Healing Hands" by Alan Frew. Both are excellent (Canadian!) albums which I highly recommend!
Personal freedom and happiness were the essence of this MOD, and I tried to reflect this in the rather cheerful melodic lines. :)
The strings during the chorus sections were sampled from my Yamaha PSR-38 keyboard. The drum tracks were recorded and sampled from a separate MOD file that I created using a combination of sounds taken from my friend Colin's (FKA Magius) Yamaha PSR-400 keyboard and some public domain instruments.
The only other instrument I tampered with was a combination bass and guitar sound that really helped to fill out the overall sound.
The piano introduction was actually something I added after the rest of the MOD was complete.
