Changes - 05/31/19 08:56 AM

This song came together after I was playing with some harmonics and the track got built around it. I was going to upload it then I thought Robert might be able to convert it to a song with lyrics.

This is the original song:

Changes

This is the band:

This song became the Atlas of Remote with Roberts vocal and lyrics.

It's fun and interesting to hear the original.

When we were about half way through Janice said that it reminded here of part of the soundtrack for the movie Dune. It does have a cinematic feel.

You, the white strat, the amp and the fx created some fine engaging guitar over some well thought out backing tracks.

I'm not knowledgeable (but trying to learn a bit) about guitar fx but they created a really cool sound particularly with the delay.

Nice!

Really cool sounding...
You play so well & tastefully...
I'm glad you included a link to "The Atlas of Remote" so I could compare the two...
I also really liked that collaboration.

Scott,

Nice to hear the original... It has a "majestic" feel to it. Distinctive.

Sound like a soundtrack for a large army heading into battle...

The Wah is cool!! Enjoyed the listen.

This could be a lyricist's delight. Keep on truckin!

Hi Scott,

That's a very nice solo you did in this song! That is something I must learn one day...
And I liked you used that DOOMED-style as I did with Strnger in my house (second part).
You only slowed it down a bit more. I nearly could sing along.

Bye for now,
Hans

Nice tasty playing - some very nice textures and dynamics - wrapped in a pretty melodic phrases.
Nicely done.

Scott, this is definitely movie material, maybe a march for an emperor. Super chops, as always, but your tones took it over the top for me. Great work here.

Robert's vocal is excellent in the collaboration version.

Scott you should be very proud of the original version and both of you should be very proud of the collaboration.

As others have said, it's got a very cinematic feel, a slow and steady march forward. Very evocative.

Very cool arrangement.

Scott,

This is great. I love all the textures and layers. Has kind of a Daniel Lanois vibe which I love.

Nice tune Scott! Very much pedal to the metal. Thanks for sharing!

The kind of piece that puts some ooomph in your step. Cinematic? Yes...but also the soundtrack for the best way to get through a day--calm and purposeful. Good stuff.

Re: Changes - 06/01/19 11:10 AM

This is really cool!!! Reminds me of the songs of the 70's.....the longer you listen, the deeper you get. Love the way the drums work with that melody which has kind of a Celtic feel. Wonderful work guys!!! Take care. Greg

Scott, somehow you are able to put a touching feeling in every note you play... makes it a very nice track to listen to.

Thanks for sharing!

Hi Scott,

It's great to hear the song before it became "Atlas of the Remote".

You've definitely got a knack for making instrumentals very engaging for the listener. This one was no exception.

I'm really pleased that it engaged Robert to write words because "Atlas of the Remote" is one of my all-time favourites from the two of you.

Thank you for posting this and giving us all an insight into your song's journey.

All the best,
Noel

Scott,
Enjoyed it much. Unusual in a very good way. Got a hint of darkness in it, but listens very well.

Thank you for sharing!

Thanks Jim so glad you liked the song. Yes it really amazed me how Robert was able to reshape the song so it could frame his vocal and lyric.

cool song, your guitar makes it so

enjoyed the listen,

Kenny

Scott,

Good to hear the original again... I think you added that wah on this version?,and maybe a bit more verb on the lower guitar track.
Interesting to notice now how much quicker Atlas of Remote ended up- the pace here is highly cinematic as others noted.
Very cool.

Robert

Thank Hans Glad you liked the song. I thought the doomed style was cool. I put up the chords and the key I wanted an just started going through the style and soon as it started to play ideas started popping into my head. Very cool software for developing tracks.

Thanks Mario I am really glad you like the song. I know you like to do allot of experimentation to with your guitar and wind controller. This one was allot of fun to work on and made really special when Robert incorporated his vocal and lyrics with it..

Really nicely done smile Very well textured, and really cinematic. Very calming and ethereal as well. The way the reverbed guitars hang over the balance give it a dream like quality which I really enjoyed.

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks Noel for the awesome comments. After I had finished the song I was preparing to release it to the forum but thought I would run it by Robert first and see if he felt it was suitable for lyrics and a vocal. He made a few adjustments to the arrangement just like that he made the song even more special. So glad you liked the song.

Yes there were a few more elements to this song that were a little different from Atlas of Remote. Very cool to compare the two.

Late getting to the party here, but better late than never I guess!

This is really cool, Scott, well thought out and arranged.

My favorite part is towards the end with the cello with the wha-wha guitar, but it's all good.

Enjoyed!
