Myths Of The Raging Seas

This is the first real musical collaboration I've had. Both music and lyrics were written by me and Miira. I took care of the arrangement with BIAB and Miira sang. Intention was to make some kind of a celtic song. Hopefully it has at least some celtic feel smile This was really fun experience and I think the outcome is quite nice for the first attempt.

Drums: Action Strikes, RD Bodhran Celtic Reel

Realtracks:
Acoustic Bass Bowed #2482, Celtic #1162
Cello #1856
Acoustic guitar #1814
Fiddle #1787, #2549
String quartet #2334
Acoustic piano #2503
Harp #2773

MIDI:
Strings from STR_QT44.sty (IO)
MST #2058 (IO)
melody - bagpipe (GPO4)

Vocals: Miira, Shevannai VST

Mixed in Adobe Audition 2017

Lyrics:

Misty was the morning
when she heard the call
of the legend her mother told
two brothers, seven ships
sailing to new worlds brave and bold
dreaming of wealth
fights alongside the king
through the beast attack
a ghost came back.

No heroes returning,
no treasures, no souvenirs
only the echoes of yearning
only losses and their fears.

Deirdre was a dainty girl
with white hair
all princes wanted to marry her
but she wanted to fight
to be a soldier like her brothers were
with her sword to defy
the myths of the raging seas
in a ruthless breeze.

[Chorus]

Mother could never hold her tears
as Deirdre left for the oceans
she knew it would cause the evil to rise
but she could not restrain her emotions
she tried to hide her sorrow
and gave her daughter advice
for there wouldn't be tomorrow
if ghost of the sea hears her cries

"Keep your silence,
don't show fear to the beast
for nothing will come back
that's been swallowed by the seas"

The kingdom sleeps in misery
silence descended
back on the troubled shores
a mother in grief
losing her dear ones in those wars
she curses the gods,
the monsters of seas
she sets the sail
to join the tale.

Incredibly atmospheric. Excellent use of different elements to create a ethereal song.
Clever innovative and nice unexpected changes as the piece develops.

Hi Janne,

I agree with Peter. This is very atmospheric. 'Haunting' was the first word that appeared in my mind just after the introduction started.

Miira's singing is a perfect fit for the mood and the story. She has done a great job.

The arrangement is incredibly inventive. You've really given it your all. Very impressive.

This is definitely a work that you and Miira can feel proud of. You've got my applause!

Regards,
Noel

Hauntingly beautiful.

I think Miira's vocals could come up front a bit more.

Regardless, it is a very unique and great composition. You must be very proud of this achievement.

Thanks Videotrack for appreciating our work smile I actually spent quite a long time with the vocals to find the right level at each section, but I agree that the vocals could be more front in some places.

This is really good. Your instrumentation is perfect for this haunting beautiful song. Mira does an outstanding job and her singing really sets the mood. If I could change one thing it would be to lower the violin and piano parts while Mira is singing the verses. IMHO they distract from Mira's excellent singing, however I am still giving you two thumbs up on this excellent piece of music.

The reason people say the vinyl sounds better is because the music was better.

64 bit Win 10 - the latest BiaB and RB - I always get the updates - Roland Octa-Capture audio interface - a ton of software and some hardware.

A very ambitious and to these ears, successful song which drew me into the mystery in both lyrics and music. A celtic sound yes, but with a modern feel that reminded me of Enya and Sandy Denny in her Fotheringay time.
Well done!
