Monday night’s episode of Adventure Time features a song I wrote that I’m waiting in nervous anticipation to hear in its final form. The demo I submitted to Tim and Casey was loosely inspired by the composer Louis Andreissen’s piece “De Staat”, except dumbed down. Basically I tried to write the kind of thing that I’ve never heard on tv before. I kept a consistent beat throughout, but didn’t let the melody repeat in any way. It’s sort of a wandering, linear phrase with all the instruments reinforcing Olivia Olson’s vocals in unison.
After recording the demo I got really nervous about it, and wrote an alternate song that was straight pop. Funny enough, Pen didn’t seem to go for the second one and liked the first, super weird one. I ended up using the pop song for my band Make A Rising on our album that we’re working on right now.
Anyway I have no idea how the song will turn out on Monday. I’m looking forward to how Casey or Tim reinterpreted it.
