Another track ... done with the _BEATBOX.STY Beatbox Hip Hop style ... and with a spoken words recording on top (as you've probably figured out by now, I can't really sing, haha!).

The title is somewhat misleading ... it's supposed to depict the Virgin Mary's own "Gethsemane", when she has to run away with the Child Jesus to a foreign land to save him from being killed with the other innocents by King Herod ... and also the plight of refugees everywhere, who have to leave their homeland (often with their young children) in order to escape a dire fate.

But enough of my explaining the song, haha ... what do we think? :-) Thanks for any and all feedback!

Interesting song James. Spoken word is a new genre for me. Excellent lyric and well done with the back track..

Hello James,

I don't listen to a lot of spoken word. But I'm glad I clicked onto this one. The backing tracks are the perfect frame for your vocal presentation. Very nicely done! Enjoyed my listen. Wishing you the very best.

Alan

Nice work on this one James smile The backing tracks you chose paired with the vocal performance makes for a really unique and chilling listen. The spoken word delivery synced up with the drums really well too.

Thanks for sharing!

James… I’ve listened to several of your compositions, and they have a lot to offer!! have you ever considered asking for a collaborator for your work? I believe there are vocalists in this community who could provide the voice for your songs. This one, in particular, has all the structure and form for a great singing track. And I love the message. Give it a try!

Thanks everyone - you really are, all of you, so kind. Tano Music: it's a thought - I really would appreciate a vocalist for some of my tracks, I just didn't think that it could be done through here. I'm out with a heavy cold right now, so I will use the enforced time off to reflect and see what to do about this. But what a genuinely great idea - thanks!

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.
