The Migrators' Educational Bit What makes a song a good song
A thought: we have the feeling that the song pre-exists in the spiritual realm, even before we start working on it. Our task, therefore, is to transport it from there to here, into this world, and make it available for others.
Genealogy of a song:
The musician starts his work from an inspiration that may come in the form of a musical part, a riff, a progression, a rhythm, a lyrics line, etc.
From there, however, he has to develop the musical material and turn it into a complete song, that will include melody, harmony and eventually the music arrangement.
Now, the question is: what makes a song a good song?
Below you will find the genealogy of two Migrators`songs, that eventually will be a part of The Story of J.C. concept album.
Listen to the whole process of the song making.
Each song has several different versions... it is like a path that from the first steps leads home, to the last station, to the song at its best, cleansed and refined of all the impurities and ready to be called finished!
You will surely understand by yourself what we mean...
