As my description on the Sound Cloud page mentions, this is my first real test of FL Studio. I've been a big fan of Ableton for my more professional music, but something told me that I needed to try FL Studio again after accruing experience across 3 other DAWs. Previously I've only used FL's free version in a small capacity, so I'm happy to present the first "real" song I've made from FL.
This song is both a bit mellow and a bit crazy. It starts off peaceful, but builds itself into a peppy chorus before slowing back down for the next verse. When experimenting with FL Studio and what kind of music packs it offered, I ran across a saxophone that I liked. It was then I decided that I needed to write a song incorporating that sax. The inclusion of the sax made me get a little crazy when using it, thus I sorta ended up with a two toned song with quick transitions from slow to fast and fast to slow. It's these transitions that made me think of a dream when naming this song - sometimes a dream is peaceful, and sometimes it can be crazy and hectic.
