Passing You By

by DDRKirby(ISQ) feat. Aivi Tran



"Passing You By" was written in 2 hours for a small producer gathering / beat cypher that took place in January 2018, where Aivi Tran (co-composer for Steven Universe, Ikenfell) provided some piano samples for us to use in our compositions.

I'm happy to finally be giving this track a long-overdue release as a single after 3 years. Even though it was long ago, I can still clearly recall the excitement that I felt as I was producing it. Something about the art of speed-composing songs under the time restrictions of a compo setting never fails to spur me into a wild creative frenzy.

You can listen to the original sample that I based the composition off of at passingxnotes.bandcamp.com/track/bonus-friday-a-prod-aivi
