Away We Go

9 March 2012 10 comments

Lately, I’ve mostly been playing on my Nintendo 3DS, but there was also a company that hired me to make an original song for them! It was supposed to be light-hearted and whimsical, and tell a story that included “futuristic technology” in some way.

I think it turned out well, even though it’s not something I usually make! I’m thinking about making a music video for it, but they’re gonna make one themselves, so I’m gonna wait and see what they come up with!

It was actually fun to make a song on command like this, so if anyone wants to hire me to make another one, contact me! :)

    I like it :)
    I think I will be singing it to myself alot… not like a crazy person… more because it’s stuck in my head now, and I only listened to it twice.

    Ah! Can’t believe I didn’t think to check your site out sooner.

    Canadian here — I’ve got a *monstrous* crush on you, Mr. FreddeGredde. >=D So, thanks for being so dreamy.

    Can’t wait to order a copy of your CD.

    Thanks also for the music and the joy it brings (to paraphrase ABBA). <3 'The Wayfarer' is my favourite of your original songs, but it's all great.

    Jag älskar dig! =D

    I think I know why it was fun to make a song on command for you. A lot of our creative process when creating something is thinking about its theme, “what’s it gonna be about”, etc etc.

    So if you already know what it’s gonna be about, the whole thing becomes a lot easier and more fun :)

    Loved the song, downloaded it now because I KNOW it’s gonna be an instant classic, haha.

    Turned out great in the end! Did you re-record the vocals? I sense some difference in some way…
    Oh, and was the company happy with how it turned out?

  • FreddeGredde (author) said:

    Stefan: Thanks! Yes, I re-recorded at least some of the vocals. I think I left the first verse as it was.

    The company seemed to be very happy with it! :)

    Is there anywhere I can download or purchase this song? I just can’t stop listening to it!

  • FreddeGredde (author) said:

    Derek: Thanks! It’s actually free to download, you just right-click the “Away We Go” text to the left of the player, and select “save link as..” or similar. :)
