This is an original french song recorded with Biab bossa RT mixed with two ukuleles (a vintage baritone one and a "modern" soprano other) and several tracks of voices
au fil de l'eau

Let me know your felling and opinion about it.

Je l'ai bien aime.

Tres cool, une puex longue peut-etre?

Des fois la voix est trop faible, et it me semble que la voix devrait etre de l'avant dans 'le mix'.

Bien fait.

Théodoros,

Merci d’avoir partagé cette compo.
Il y a beaucoup de réflexion dans les paroles.
Aussi j’aime bien tes choix de batterie.

Une bonne structure, pas de temps mort ni d’interlude musical superflu.

Mais je ne trouve ni la progression ni la mélodie très remarquable.
Avais-tu un autre choix de mélodie dans les versions précédentes?
Celle-ci me semble un peu basse pour ta voix (dans les couplets).

A 2:37 il y a une baisse quasi-totale dans l’intensité de la voix - problème de respiration?

Enfin, je trouve le mix un peu chargé partout et notamment après 1:47.

Marc



Théodoros,

Thanks for sharing this piece.
I can see that a lot of thought went into the lyric.
I particularly like the drum choices you made.

The structure is solid and I like the fact that there are no pointless solos/interludes.

But I don’t thing the chord progression and melody really do justice to the lyric.
Was there an alternative melody that you tried out in earlier versions?
This one in particular seems to be a bit low (in the verse section) for your voice.

At 2:37 the singing almost cuts out altogether – breathing problem?

Finally, to my ears the whole thing is just a little too busy, especially so after 1:47.

But these are only my humble views and bossa is not really my thing !

Marc

I like the chord sequence (simple and effective), the structure (very natural and logical), the melody, and the arrangments. On the "negative" side, I find that maybe the key is just too low for your voice, that the voice could be better more "inside" the mix, and that the ending is a little bit abrupt.

Just minor details. Overall, a very nice song in my opinion. Congratulations

Smooth backing track and ukes and the vocal has a good timbre to it. Pretty cool. Needs a hot uke solo (ha, ha). Good one! Nice increase in dynamics at ~1:47. Sounds "pro" to me.
