모든 게 자릴 찾아서 돌아오고
내가 아무 일 없는 듯이 웃게 되면
너의 이름 한 번쯤 부르는 게
지금처럼 아프지 않을 거야
(Everything finds its place and returns
If I finally smile as if nothing happened
Calling out your name
Won’t hurt as much as it does now)
Taeyeon – 11:11 lyrics
On this day in the past, I had tried playing Taeyeon’s 11:11 on my guitar (see post: PEPERO DAY 2018: MY GUITAR PROMISE (FROM A YEAR AGO)) and on a ukulele (see post: 11.11 2019: I WISH FOR YOUR WISH COME TRUE). This year, rather than trying to play the same song on yet another instrument, I had a new idea to put into practice some music arrangement skills that I just picked up not long ago at a mobile music making lesson as part of a 6-month long course I started taking up in October to reskill/upskill myself.
2nd half of the day we also learned to do basic music arrangements with MIDI files for Canon in D. That was what I managed to do with some guidance from the lecturer and by myself later on. Hehe pretty fun! pic.twitter.com/ANkAuIzxb8

I bought the sheet music and MIDI file from a YouTuber who did the following piano cover of Taeyeon’s 11:11 and started doing some music arrangements on it to produce a remix version of my own.
Here’s a snippet of the resulting piano remix I managed to put together on the music editing program or DAW software that I used. 📹
Listen to the full audio here. 🎶
Also, if you prefer, I made a simple audio video with a background image that I edited myself! 📹🎶
If you noticed, I had injected some elements of the Disney fairytale “The Princess and the Frog” which I referenced in my last year’s 11.11 artwork for Taeyeon (see post: 11.11 2019: I WISH FOR YOUR WISH COME TRUE) into this background image, but the original illustrated girl on my artwork is now replaced with the real life version of Taenggu!
Dear Taenggu, my Princess Tiana,
Hope you like this special self-arranged piece of piano remix of 11:11! 💜
Hehe it’s my first time trying to arrange a piece of music like this for you. Hope you will listen to it with lots of love and pardon me if the way I edited your vocal parts may sound weird or awkward because I didn’t fully understand the lyrics in Korean… 😜
HAPPY 1️⃣1️⃣:1️⃣1️⃣ PEPERO DAY TO YOU!
Self-produced with love,
Listen to: “11:11 (Live Acoustic Version)” by TaeYeon
