A Flicker of Hope

This is the second full song I ever created!

I had been flirting with the open source music creation software LMMS for many years, and always found it quite archaic and ugly. But a few weeks ago, I was annoyed how that prevented me from actually making music, so I decided to try to become friends with it. And while there are some annoying things missing for a really smooth workflow, I was actually pretty happy with the software.

I had the lead melody for this track in a drafts folder for several years, and expanded it to a full song. Thanks a ton to lastfuture, who gave me incredibly helpful advice, that made the song a lot better!

You can listen to it on SoundCloud or download it as MP3 or FLAC. The LMMS project file is available here, you’ll need the FluidSynth soundfont for the distorted guitar.


With dancing mousecursor, in the style of Kevin MacLeod. :D
