Big studio pro sound from start to last note.

As we've come to expect the write, the vocals and the audio/video production are stellar.

Also the manner in which you made seemingly disparate RT's work perfectly well together is a clinic in just how well you work with them and the remarkable versatility that BiaB offers.

The lyric is outstanding and the spoken part is absolutely seamless.

Man, you have set a HIGH bar on this!

Hi Rob (Hello to Anne-Marie, too),

As several have already said, this is stunning and one of the last things we would have had expected to come from you. It was superb and held our attention until the very end. However, we wished it hadn't ended. We've marked it go back for more listens.

It's haunting and totally captivating. The contrast of the backing tracks between the spoken and written passages is dramatic and so wonderful! Di and I experiment with combining seemingly incompatible tracks quite often and we were so pleased and thrilled how you combined those backing tracks for such a superb final product.

Simply put, that was amazing and such a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for those minutes of pure pleasure!

ALan & Di

Hello, Rob

Very excellent song and video.
As Robert said, original and haunting. Your vocals are as flawless as ever and the arrangement nicely restrained.
And the spoken words work so well.
Enjoyed my listen and watch a lot.

Best regards.

Thank you Robert!

I agree this is one of the videos that worked out best. Well, apart from the editing part, that's not entirely my doing, I'm also dependent of whatever royalty-free footage I can get my hands on ;-)

Good one man.

I love what you did making up this style. It perfectly suits the lyrics and vocals. (Which are top notch.)

That Brent Mason acoustic is awesome.

Great production here Rob.

Thank you Kenny!

About the inspiration for this song, well... I'm probably a criminal ;-)
Just kidding, sort of unconscious I think, but also inspired by several crime series like The Fall and some other Netflix stuff.

But also this song:

Jeanny

Most Americans, British and Canadians probably never heard of this artist, Falco (German singer) was quite infamous here in Holland back in the 80s. I think I took some of the inspiration out of this song.
It's particularly interesting to listen to his perfect timing, in this song.
I've tried to record this one, and also try to sing it in karaoke bars.
I never once managed to get the exact timing of his vocals, which makes him quite unique.

Hi Rob, This is a truly a great song and excellent composition. Its not easy to do the spoken word but your voice was smooth as silk, I also think the naratives bounced along in time perfectly.

Chords and melody were superb. Its a hit with me too.
Paul
PS
I think we may use the same site for video footage as I have used some of those clips in my work.

Well done all around. The spoken word, the lyrics and melody. I especially like the atmosphere, the vibe you've created, and hats off to you on your instrument selections they blend together superbly.

And your video is super.

Much enjoyed!

Hi Rob,
nice dark video and a song with many pleasant surprises.
It's funny how you get started with a jazz style and find your own fitting arrangement.
I enjoyed it.

Save Notation Window as a Video with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac

Did you know... Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac allows you to save the Notation Window as a video? What a great way to share your songs with users, and LEARN from the notation as you listen!

From the program manual:
[Save As] | Save as video
-In the Make Notation Video dialog, select a track at the upper left corner. (Note: The dialog title says “Make Chord Sheet Video” until you select a track.)
-You can also set the dimension (width/height) of the video and select the number of frames per second and a specific codec.
-Press the [OK - Render Video] button to start rendering the video. When the video has been created, press the [Show Video File] button.
-You can then double click on the file to watch the rendered video.

Note: A special use of this feature is to combine a Video RealTracks (new with version 2018) with the corresponding notation in a single video. This creates an educational video, which shows the actual performance with notation/tab, playing over your chord progression! To do this, right-click on the Master button or one of the track buttons at the top of the main screen and select Render Video(s) from the menu.
