"What Child Is This?" is the first song that was made for this collection. I arranged it in a dorm room in Edmonton, Alberta Canada during the day, while at night I was playing keyboards for the improv comedy festival at Rapidfire Theatre called the "Improvaganza". It’s a great festival, and if you’re in Edmonton in late June, you should stop in. With shows every night, I had a ton of time to work on music during the day, so I knocked out this song. In context of the whole album, this song doesn’t sound like the first one I arranged. Because of its complexity, it sounds more like a later project. There’s some subtle humor and complicated countermelodies and arpeggiations going on in here. I panned all the various melodic lines all around the stereo field to make it more easy for the listener to distinguish them all.
