XMAS 2009 Digital Release

Written by Juno on . Posted in Sound 'n Music

A year with a lot of ups and downs has passed by yet again. Time to have a look at 2009, learn from the mistakes that have been made, the sad moments, the fun times…

And then, look forward again. It’s already 2010 you know !

It’s been a few years now since I started to make some specific tracks as a special gift to friends and family. This time I’ve managed to create some new ones again. Though I only could get them finished/online now. Ah well, better late than never I suppose.

Head over to http://www.junonoel.com/music/#2009-12.1 for a listen and download a track if you’d like to.

You can always leave a comment on this post or on an individual track by clicking on the song-title. Or just give me a shout on my contact page.

See you … happy 2010 !

Together Again

Written by Juno on . Posted in Life

We already knew for a while that my grandfather wasn’t doing very well. He had been diagnosed with cancer in his bladder. A very bad one, and it was growing further towards the kidneys. Treatment ? Impossible, only some things were possible, to easy the pain and discomfort. Other than that … nothing.

Besides that, he lost his beloved wife 3 months ago. Missed her very much, and clearly said when he heard that there was no cure for his illness : “then I can be together with my wife again …”

Last week on the 14th of november, we got the phonecall … he was gone … . This gave me the idea to compose something again, in his memory. It was very difficult. I already made “Memories will last forever” in memory of my grandmother, but this time, it had to be at least as good as the other one and still had something in common with “Memories will last forever”.

His sentence gave me the idea to make a song with sounds and style resembling the previous one. I tried to make a new theme and mix in the theme I made for “Memories will last forever”, thus creating “Together Again”, a symbolic track referring to him saying; “then I can be together with my wife again …”.

It took a long time of tryouts, twiddling, tests, erasing but I finished it finally. This friday I just finished everything. The mastering of the main track “Together Again”, which was also the title of the mini-album. And I also succeeded in creating two extra tracks, “Emotions” and “Spiritual connection”. The idea of those came along creating “Together Again”. So I included those.

The artwork was finished just in time and I was able to get everything burned, printed and cutted. The family agreed instantly to play the song during the spreading of the ashes again, like it happened with my grandmother also.

I will release a digital music release, including artwork soon. But only after the funeral. And after some rest. It’s so intense again.
