Q: How did the song ‘DON’T CRY’ come to be?
A: My style of working on music starts with using a chord combination as the foundation and then expanding that by creating a melody that fits in best with it, then writing lyrics that works fittingly. But this time, a friend named LYDIA PAEK who I had worked with together for this song had already created a base chord and melody. Using this, I fit in some additional melodies, lyrics, arrangement, and other processes of production, and this song was born.
At first we tried to go with a slow-tempo song, but we tried to give it a different feel with a faster beat that clashes with the song’s mood. Through this screening we are able to show both styles by introducing the slow-tempo version in the show. Rest of the Interview is under the cut
