How this was created:

We began by choosing a minor key signature, to put Songworks into a different frame of mind, then used "Generate melody idea with chords." Songworks created a minor chord progression and a minor tune to go with it.

At the time this was created Songworks was a Mac-only program and Apple stock prices were taking a dive; we thought that this might have been influencing the computer because the result is fairly poignant. Yet there is a hint of optimism at the end.


The Steinway piano sound from Garritan Personal Orchestra plays the chord track, and we assigned the melody track to the "clean electric guitar" from Garageband itself.
