Seasons in songs

Once again, the end of 2014 has been a busy time for Raven’s Jig, both on a personal level and music-wise. It’s been too long since we have updated here, but we have quite a lot to show! Aside from working, behind the scenes, or alternate, newer and better versions of our older songs, we …

Raven’s Jig – Daylight Express to Lutz

After Hans Zimmer’s soundtrack “Interstellar” lost the 2015 Academy Award for Best Original Music Score to Alexandre Desplat’s “The Grand Budapest Hotel”, Onne (a fervent Zimmer fan) came to Agathe to complain about it. To which Agathe responded, “Wait, have you heard what the winner’s music sounds like?” Half an hour later Onne was chastising …

Raven’s Jig – Anything Goes

We released this mellow arrange of a golden oldie early in January 2015, to celebrate the new year. Arranged in a style similar to the one used in Leçon de Français, and reprising the original lyrics, this song was a happy little joke we were happy to partake in, knowing that of course, the older …

Raven’s Jig – Tournis (The Heart Asks Pleasure First)

We had a go at “The Heart Asks Pleasure First”, from the 1993 film The Piano, and turned it into a vocal arrangement. The topic we had in mind when writing the lyrics was the social construct of carousels (or children’s rides in general). When we tell a kid that he’s supposed to enjoy a …

Raven’s Jig – Primavera (on-vocal)

“Primavera” translates to “spring”, yet many have attributed feelings of melancholy to this Ludovico Einaudi classic (incidentally the first one we arranged as Raven’s Jig). Spring is supposed to be a time of new life, a time of fresh energy. Indeed, Ludovico’s Primavera sounds exactly like what you’d expect from the beginning of a Hollywood …

Raven’s Jig – You’re so Cool! (on-vocal)

Believe it or not… This is also a Hans Zimmer song. The last one we played to date, and a particular one at that; this is one of the first songs that gave Onne inspiration to play more cheerful songs and experiment in more childlike styles, which would much later lead to the rise of …

Raven’s Jig – Roof Garden

Al Jarreau is one of Agathe’s mom’s favorite musicians. Of course, when Onne worked on this synth and horns-heavy arrange, he didn’t know that: he was merely experimenting on brand new styles, expanding his skills and paving his way into the colorful variety of styles that would make up our music later. This cheery arrangement …

Raven’s Jig – Moon River

Breakfast at Tiffany’s is one of Agathe’s favorite films, and both Raven’s Jig members love Audrey Hepburn’s sheer sense of style and grace – so it only made sense to pay homage to her with this simple, straightforward arrange of Henri Mancini’s Moon River. Of course, it doesn’t beat the original scene with Hepburn stroking …
