Hello everybody,

Most of the times we write a song and start looking for a nice video, or pictures to go with it.
This time we've done it the other way around.
Looking for videos in the public domain, that could be of any use, we discovered a video made by Carlos Vieira, which was posted on Mazwai.com.
We liked it so much, that we've made a song to go with this video (which we have modified a bit).
We sent the link to Carlos Vieira, who let us know he liked it very much.

Very pretty song!! Instrumentation was perfect-love that dreamy electric. Vocals were up to your usual standard: clear, clean, and perfectly processed. Video was quite beautiful. Really nicely done!! Take care. Greg

The song and video really worked great together and another well written, production and performance. Amazing talent from both of you. Carlos Vieira should be elated.

Another fantastic tune. The style is perfect, the vocals superb.

The video clip and music are fantastically collaborative. The instrumental fits so well.

Thanks for another great tune.

Traces of Dire Straits and yeah... this is good. Haunting.

Good job on the recording and writing.

Yes, he certainly should be pleased.
Just about every time I think about
creating a vid you post one and I
think...naaaah don't think I will!

Writing the song to work with
the pre-existing video has got
be a different experience. Letting the
video drive the writing experience
is conceptually something I'd never
thought about. Suffice it to say
that it worked and worked
wonderfully well.

The word that comes to mind is
"ethereal." The whole audio
production just melds into the
video so well. Seems like they
were meant for each other.

We thoroughly enjoyed it.

Hi Rob and Anne-Marie.

A beautiful song and as others have said already, perfectly matched to the video image.

From the vocals to the choice of Realtracks, the arrangement and the mix, it's all extremely professional.

I'm sure that this wasn't an easy project, but you've accomplished it with distinction.

ROG.

Rob and Anne-Marie,

This is such a great idea! I was thinking about this possibility just a couple of days ago. Poking around looking for available clips - first time for that, I saw a couple that I thought would be good if you had the right song... or if you wrote one to fit it. Inspirational! What a terrific way to find new song ideas... with a "built-in" video when you are done...

Beautiful song. Wonderful production. Lovely vocals.

Another winner! And one heck of a video!!

R & A-M, Writing a song to match a video is indeed a unique concept. If anyone could pull it off it would be you two. And you have! Very nice production all around. Tom

Thank you Greg!

Yes, the pop dreamy Brent realtrack never lets you down, it's so versatile. This is about the fifth song we are using it in laugh

PG Music News
RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

continued...

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
