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.

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

Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.
Fixed: LeadSheet might not display tied notes on the last bar of a track.
Fixed: Pressing "M" key in Editable Notation to insert a new note at the current time location on the Staff was inserting a duplicate note rather than inserting it above an existing note.
Fixed: Loading in a MusicXML file could result in MIDI notes of zero instead of the currect MIDI notes.
Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.

Fixed: Accidental element that specified whether a note was displayed as sharp/flat wasn't eing saved to XML, even though the correct pitch of the note itself was saved.
