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.

A Look Back... Band-in-a-Box® 2015 NAMM Demonstration #TBT

Watch Tobin (and Charlie!) demonstrate Band-in-a-Box® 2015 for Windows at the 2015 NAMM Show: Play video...

Tobin does a great job of showing just how easy it is to create a song with Band-in-a-Box!

This video was posted on January 23, 2015 to the Keyboard Instrument Chops and Gear YouTube Channel.

We've made it even easier to get started with Band-in-a-Box® with the Easy Payment Plan 4 - when you choose this payment option you'll pay four equal monthly payments starting on the day of your order.

Band-in-a-Box® File Associations

It's actually pretty simple - basically, if you select this option while you're installing the program, files with the extensions .SGU, .MGU, and other Band-in-a-Box files will open directly in the program if you select them from outside the program.

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
