If you like this piece, please consider donating to PACE an organisation that provides mental health support and counseling to LGBT people. Many LGBT people, especially trans women, face systemic discrimination, which among other things, tends to take a toll on mental health. Although the NHS is getting better on LGBT issues, many people rely on more specialized services like PACE.
This is a song with an unrecorded vocal part about going home for Christmas in a smallish town and knowing that one’s ex will also be there. The two parts were created using AutoMusic, an extremely buggy MIDI program that I tried and failed to use for yesterday’s Markov chains. Sheet music parts are available on request.
The sounds are Risset bells (described in the Dodge book), Karplus-strong strings, and STK Shakers with freeverb.
This track is part of a larger project, ’12 days of Crimbo’, which will raise funds for homeless and/or LGBT charities.
