Hello everybody,

Here's our contribution to Joanne's project.

SAVANNAH (Rhino Project)

Hope you like it, any comments are welcome.

Song specifics:
Style is BACH_1.STY (Bach 1 Classical Piano)
RealTracks in song: 1007:Piano, Acoustic, Solo-Accompaniment, PopFlowing Ev 120


Lyrics:

A vision of you wandering the fields
You'd never ever worry, just living it for free
Raise your child, provide her every need
When everything seems silent
Everything feels real

A sudden cry of thunder
Kills the light of day
And the forest wheeps
as the babies die
It's haunting me

Savannah.....

Disgraced by men disgraced by poisoned minds
For whom life means so little, for whom there's only greed
A cruel excuse for all your human needs
I bet you hold your silence
I bet you hold your peace

When hunters cold as iron
spread death and pain
Trampling nature's grounds
in a no man's land
As far as they can see

Poachers cold as iron
cause death and pain
While the forest weeps
They'll degrade themselves
By killing babies

Savannah.....

Beautiful vocals, a wonderful wildlife video.

Such a diverse set of songs in this project.
I do hope governments listen but then sadly :>(

Excellent song and video. Very professional on both counts. Very solid submission.

I was half-expecting Elton after that sweet piano opening:)

Love the melody. It's just right for the topic.

Excellent write and production and top-shelf vocals - as usual.

Rob and Anne-Marie
This is just wonderful. Well up to your normal very high standards. How on earth do you manage to dig up public domain footage like this? The vocals are outstanding and Anne-Marie's subtle undercurrent of harmony make a great production.

For those who don't understand how talented these two are, this song was written, recorded and produced in about 4 days!. AND a video to boot. Now that is something to aspire to!

Hey you two, great video and audio production. Anybody
who that has any doubt about how a video can enhance a lyric
should watch this.

Thanks for applying you high production values and creativity
to this cause.

We really like what you did.

Rob and Anne-Marie,

Wonderful. Excellent write. A strong lyric against a strong melody.

I'm a big fan of the solo piano and vocal type production. This is a great treatment for this song. Your vocals are always good - this is your best - filled with passion.

Hi Scott,

Let me take a wild guess, after the piano intro you were expecting to hear......Daniel? grin
You're definitely right, I had that Elton feeling all along while writing this one.
I think this is one of the best RTs to use for this type of song.

Thanks for your comment!

Rob

Hi Joanne,

Yes, we were lucky to be able to use the footage. Anne-Marie is very good at digging it up from the Internet, and editing it next.
We are happy that you like the song. It's a very cool project and we really hope that you'll find enough sponsors.

Rob

Hi Rob and Anne-Marie,

Definitely a composition to be proud of. The piano/vocals/video combination is very powerful indeed. I can't believe that it all happened in 4 days! That's pretty incredible. You've both shown us yet another way of looking at these magnificent animals.

What a great audio-visual journey!

All the best,
Noel

Thanks J&B,

Well your contribution to the project definitely is cool too! We took a listen from within Dropbox. Did you already post this on the forum, or have we missed that?

Thank you Floyd,

we liked this specific piano RT for the song.
We've tried a couple of others, including some of the MIDI pianos, played with the DXI Forte (which sometimes is even better than RTs).
These solo accompaniment pianos give lots of room for the vocals.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now available for The Melody and Soloist tracks.
•Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. (Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on The line.)
•Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
•The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
•There's a keystroke entry notation mode - the 'N' mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
•You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When The dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current Notation track.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.

We talk about these new features within our Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows®! New Features, RealTracks, and other content! video:
