I did post this in the main thread, but i felt like kicing off a thread for this in case someone missed it.
Rather then going for the typical christmas Shlock, i went for something that sounded wintery to me. I also wanted to experiment with vocal samples, so i picked one that, in context, acctually fits the 'Christmas theme' quite well, if you think of stars as a symbol of hope. The overall result is something that almost sounds like a Fatboy slim song, which wasn'ty acctually intended, but is a nice bonus. I also included a falsified 'Sampled 'n Chopped' piano riff, 'cus i have a facination with chopped loops.
I'd say more, but i'm at school at the moment, and need to be somewhere shortly, so i'm in a rush. ^^;
