Mystery - Music Story

The Making of a Music Story
Colossians 2 describes Jesus as the mystery of God! Mystery would be an awesome theme and title for a song based on that chapter.

My notes on Colossians 2 spill over into the next pages. I’ll write then rewrite and rewrite lyrics.
Mystery

The final revision of lyrics sits at my work station where I play around with melody lines in major and minor keys.

Now to create the song on my computer. Going for a nocturne-like arrangement of Garritan® virtual instruments.
Mystery

Finale®, my music composition program, creates a WAV file of the score. I add it to my iTunes playlist and listen on my iPod. The arrangement needs work.
Mystery

So I edit the score. Again. And again. And again.
Mystery

Now to make a video. I’ll need a public domain image as backdrop and interesting fonts for music and lyrics.

From the album “Sing” this Music Story video is a screen capture of Finale® playing Garritan® instruments.
