Heartbeat Song|Biology Project

Uploaded on Jul 21, 2018


So this is something I did for an online biology course - one of the project options was to write a song about the heart. Obviously, I jumped at the chance, and now here's the final product!! I haven't enjoyed a school project this much in a loooong time :P

Update: I got 100%. Yay xD
Second update: I got 97% in the course overall. Yay :P

I first made the melody in March (while I was also composing Shine Through) - I improvised everything but the bridge section off the top of my head, but then I didn't know what to do with it because of its pop-ish style that didn't suit the majority of the pieces (in my current style). And then this project popped up. I thought it was a great place to use this melody that I'd created but didn't have anything to use it in. I kept the simplicity in the melody and chords so I could write a catchy song quickly.

And if I was gonna write a song, I figured I might as well use it not only as a bio project, but as an opportunity for experimentation. I've never written for so many parts (8 is a lot for me), but it wasn't even half as hard as I'd anticipated :P. I've experimented a bit with percussion...which I've never done before, and a bit more with making a richer string sound (it doesn't sound EXACTLY like I heard in my head, but I'm still pretty happy with how it turned out).

btw I am aware I said "atriums" instead of "atria"
