How I assembled a recent project for a client video, from rough project brief and an audio peg to final product.

Emorej (aka Jerome Llama) took my lyrics and set it to a beautiful melody. I then took the vocal track and constructed a mournful worldbeat track with a little drum-n-bass in the chorus.
