leafy álfheimr

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
hummingbird homes
and honeycombs,
hanging amongst
a grove of poems
**
honeycombs
and hummingbirds,
settled between
little leaves and words
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This one's a combination of material from two tracks: the Muspellheimr track I made earlier in the year, and a track I made a few years back but can't find anywhere anymore (save for the original MuseScore file I wrote it in) called "fairy." I think I had it in my head at one point that I wanted to write tracks for each of the nine worlds of Norse Mythology. But with only 17 weeks left in the year (and life being busy enough as it is), we'll see how that pans out.

So far I'm a minute and a half into the song and I feel like I've already gone on a journey haha. The piano progression is super pretty. The vocal patch near the end was a nice surprise too. This is a really beautifully composed song start to finish. Favorited!

Very delicate track with subtle lines. Very good melodies and choices of sounds. That was a good chill relaxing track!

What a gorgeous song. A bit of a frozen glade feel almost.

Ooh love this! 3/4 time? Those are some tasty chords and melodies.

Thanks so much! I'd been hoping to find a track to use that vocal patch on for a while. This felt like as good a chance as any.

Thank you! Glad to hear the melodies turned out okay. They aren't typically my strong suit, but I'm trying to get better at melodic writing.

Thank you! Nature definitely inspires a lot of what I write, so it's always neat to hear when images like that come to people's minds.
