This track, “One Moment for a Teardrop,” is the product of a collaboration between myself and some Internet friends in Germany. The original instrumental track was written by Ilonka Rundolp (https://soundcloud.com/ll11-ilonka-rudolph) then remixed by Tristan Schubert (https://soundcloud.com/neon-circuit) who also asked me to write and record some vocals for it.
I’ve been involved with several other (attempted) collaborations, and so far this is the only one that has managed to produce with something worthwhile. Tristan manages to create instrumentals that have that element of melancholy that I feel comfortable writing vocals for while simultaneously adding the rhythm and intensity that I struggle to do on my own. In that sense I consider it one of the perfect types partnerships: enough crossover to be able to relate to each other’s music yet still having different strengths to bring to the table to compensate for each other’s weaknesses and therefore end up with a more complete track. I hope you like it.
