Hey hey,
I know that the official date is the 1st of Septembre, but I'll be a little 
out of touch, so I have decided to post my birthday contribution today.

Beautiful, excellent birthay dear Yoshimi :)

I stayed with the electronic genre, which is an obvious choice, but I have 
tried to go down a different route with a different sound. A more RNB inspired 
song in rhythm and arrangement, though the harmonies tell a more classical 
story. The bridge is strongly influenced by Cesar Franck Prelude et 
variations. It's a beautiful piece, you'll find a lovely version on the Aeolus 
demo page. Listen out for the small section leading from the opening part to 
the quieter verse. It's the best way I can describe it. :)

The sounds are mostly from the Jeanny's Genius soundbank for Yoshimi:

The big bang is from the noise bank and the lead is the officially approved 
"Will Godfrey's favourite lead sound". The latter is admittedly a tad low in 
the mix. I tried it at more volume, but found it too straining for my ears. I 
thik I might be a little sensitive in that frequency range and then this song 
is quite different from Will's serene, open tunes, where this sound can flow 
much more freely.

So: happy birthday Yoshimi, for ten years you're a very grown up little girl 
with (not so) hidden depth to your character. An inspiring "play mate".

Best wishes,
