Today I’m presenting you with another track by the French composer and piano player Byebyefish, called First Breaths. Byebyefish started playing the piano at the age of six and got inspired by compositions with greats as Claude Debussy, Maurice Ravel and Erik Satie; but also modern composers like Yann Tiersen.
The track First Breaths was released as a single on the 3rd of February, 2023.
Tell us something about your track First Breaths!
Recorded and mixed 2023 at GAM Studio by producer Armen Bedrossian near Paris, ‘First Breaths’ is a minimalistic and very calm solo piano piece. As I often compose much richer piano pieces, this song was some kind of challenge for me: how to make a song that would not be too easy with so few notes? So I worked a lot on the atmosphere. Breathing can be very light and aerial but also very deep, so I felt the silence would be as much important as notes. The reverb effect is also as important as the instrument recording. At the end, I had much fun creating a visualizer where colored clouds have an aerial move depending on notes frequencies and volume, as if Parisians breaths were united I the air.
Thank you so much for this!
