Song – In Bright Falls
SpinTunes 2, round 4 (final round). I know I skipped a song but for once I’d like to be current on something. So…..I made it to the final round! I never thought I’d make it this far and I’m a little more than surprised. Loads of great songs and talent in this competition. It really is amazing. If you haven’t checked out SpinTunes yet, go to the link above and you can navigate to all the rounds, past and present. Thanks to Travis for running this and to all the judges for taking the time out to do that judging thing.
The challenge was to write a song about a video game character from a first person point of view. It had to be an original character and not one from a movie/tv show etc. I’ll make this one quick. The song, In Bright Falls, is about the character Alan Wake from the video game, Alan Wake. If you haven’t played the game then you probably aren’t sure what the song is about. A quick synopsis of the game, without giving too much of it away, is about AW, who is an author going through writers block for a couple years. He goes on vacation to Bright Falls with his wife, who eventually goes missing. We then journey through many twists and weirdness as AW desperately searches for his missing wife. The song could have gone on a lot longer, but I don’t really care for long songs, unless you’re Pink Floyd.
I was going to make this the last song of the year but I changed my mind and will write one more. Also, I have a bunch of other songs that I’d like to get on here from earlier in the year. Look for those before the year ends. There’s a possible project that could be happening next year. Look out for that too.
So that’s it. SpinTunes is sadly over. Good luck to everybody! Here’s the link to the entire album.
