I'm currently working on a medieval style music project, and I just had a very inspiring experience creating a new track - As It Once Was. Normally I sequence a track out in midi and keep working on it for weeks before I feel it's ready to produce the final piece. I'm a perfectionist about how I want the music to sound. But with this track I midi sequenced a couple of tunes and some drums, and then went ahead and produced and arranged the track using a few loops with different instruments applied to them. It took only a few hours to finish, and I just let the track evolve naturally as I made it, without having too clear an idea of the final arrangement in my head. I enjoyed it about as much as I've ever enjoyed making music, and I'm very happy with the final result. I also think it's the most upbeat and catchy piece of music I've made!
