About Trish Thunderstone
Trish Thunderstone has been making music ever since he was very young. His goal is to explore many mindscapes and sonic moods to create something truly special. His instrumentals are very original, often exploring a huge variety of genres and styles. Willpower and some ability to perform can overcome all obstacles. People may listen to these videos with amused wonder and some may be inspired also. This is music that dares to be different, without following in the self-indulgent pitfalls of excessive experimentalism. In other words, it is accessible, but also quite intelligently arranged and laid out.
When we start to write/compose a song we like to edit it in Ableton Live 10 Intro. So, here we are, we launch the program and think about the beats per minute...
We put it on 89 BPM. We've added a few rhythmic samples from Hardwell. While playing we arrive at the chords for the piano.
Create new chords
Write the notes down
From the chords, we can look up the scale by noting the notes that occur in the chords. And from the scale, we can make new chords.
f / g / g# / bes / c / c# / d# / f
Now that we listen to the piece of music again, we hear that there is a glitch at the end of the piano loop. We think maybe the CPU was overloaded when we were recording.
We are thinking of building a bridge
It's nice to build a bridge or a break with the chords we have, with these chords we can make a new chord scheme. See the image above.
Let's team up and invite other musicians
We asked The Zen Monks (vocal choir) The Mayan (lofi beats & lyrics) and Jorrit Godeke (fretless bass) to participate in this song.
Together they create a certain atmosphere and contribute to the unique sound of the songs.
An amazing vocal choir is known professionally as The Zen Monks
We have 4 audio channels for the choir. Ruben Geerlings likes to pretend there's an outside band called the Zen Monks, which was recorded at Cbra Systems High-Quality Studio, in Groningen in March 2023 under the direction of Ruben Geerlings who is also the web designer of cbra.systems, an innovative website with a distinctive take on music, technology, and beyond.

Collaboration with The Mayan
He has sung vocal parts. He made some chill beats and a mellow chill-hop melody with a bassline which we used at the end of the song.
