Free Background Music 22: As Long as a Word Remains Unspoken

As Long as a Word Remains Unspoken is the 22nd song in the Free Background Music series. This is a very gentle and wistful synth-piano instrumental with a slightly East-Asian feel to the melody. The song was played on a Korg M50 synthesizer and recorded using Sonar Home Studio.

Tempo: 65 bpm (The tempo is actually 130 bpm, but the feeling is more like 65 bpm.)
Duration: 2:14

About the Video

The title comes from the quote: “As long as a word remains unspoken, you are its master; once you utter it, you are its slave” (Solomon Ibn Gabirol ben Judah, an 11th Century poet and philosopher).

The video footage was taken on the hills overlooking Sai Kung in Hong Kong. I used a digital toy camera, a Digital Harinezumi 2, to take the video and then blurred it in After Effects to create a dreamy look.

I used Elegy over the footage of a first birthday and it was perfect. Poignant and sweet with the tinkling notes, but also happy. Thank you so much for your willingness to share!!!
