About the Song

Jessica is one of our channel’s guest artists. This is a gentle piano song that is suitable for use as a soundtrack for touching, tranquil or nostalgic scenes. As the title suggests, the scene she had in mind when composing the song was a setting deep underwater.

The song was recorded using a Yamaha Clavinova. Jessica has a very light touch when playing the piano, so even during the climactic moments—where the arrangement gets quite busy—the song keeps its tender mood.

Jessica has also contributed The Mercury Tale—a short (fifty seconds) piano instrumental.

About the Video

The video is comprised of:

  • A music visualizer effect I created in After Effects using the Music Spectrum effect. I attached that spectrum to a circular mask and then animated it further using the Griddle effect nd modified the colors using other effects and filters. I quite like the final visualizer effect; it seems like the graphics are producing the music rather than simply responding to it. The title text was also also animated in After Effects using one of the text animation presets.
