Folks, Christmas has come early for me, Phil Wickham released a new Christmas worship single, Manger Throne.
When it dropped I forced myself to avoid listening to it for the first time, until I could get in front of the camera... It felt like trying to avoid hearing 'All I want for Christmas is you' - pretty much impossible!
Once I got setup for video I filmed my real-time, honest reaction to the tune. I thought I knew what to expect, but the song surprised me in a few ways.
In this real reaction video you'll get to see how I dissect the song from the keys perspective and:
- how to layer sounds to fill orchestral space - this song gets huge!
- how a single instrument can transforms your Patch to 'Christmas time'
- simple programming to keep your sounds from getting out of control, or too muddy (and we know Christmas songs have a lot of layering!)
