Rec,

The added verse and outro synth work well - the song feels more complete now. Terrific production all round.
If there`s ever a Lord Of The Rings stage play this would work well as Treebeard walks onstage!

And a good read about the effects of Coursera and Pat Pattison.

I am enjoying your music Rec, glad you are back posting!!!

Hey J&B, now that made me chuckle laugh

As I respond I'm looking out a window at a 150+ year old hardwood forest. Janice and I walk or mountain bike through our forest everyday so your song is even more special for us.


It sounds amazing. I had a look at some of the photos on your website and it looks even more amazing. Pleased that the song struck a chord with you (no pun intended).

Quote:

The vocoder works well for us and we are struck at how much work must have gone into this production. We have much enjoyed our listens and thanks for including the back story.

Superb!

J&B


Thanks for your generous comments. If I get the thumbs up from you guys I know I must be doing something right. Seriously though it was great fun seeing what I could do with the original idea.

All the best,
Rec

Hi Robert,

Thanks a bunch and I'm so pleased that you approve of the new version. Maybe I should send a copy to Peter Jackson in case he has any LOTR stage plays in the works wink

Cheers

Sure a lot of comments on this original style. The synthesizer and the vocal give it a majestic sort of digital futurism, but there is also a kind of authoritative feel to it, kind of like the instructions to the population coming over the loud speakers in the year 3000. "Now hear this!"
Remember that song about "Major Tom" ?
You have your own style, if you can stay with it and keep producing to it.
You don't want to sound like the new age ruler -0- then, maybe you do

Thanks Ed, It's not my usual style of music but I enjoyed making it and it seemed to fit the subject matter. The "Major Tom" song - did you mean David Bowie's Space Oddity?

I quite enjoy trying out different styles and BIAB gives you the luxury of having a ready made backing band in just about any style you care to name. I quite fancy doing a metal song next but need to eat some gravel before I attempt that laugh

Cheers

Hi Rec,

I've been looking at the title of this for a week or so now and I've been trying to work out what kind of song it would be... arrangement, production, etc.

Well, all I can is that my imagination let me down very badly. I didn't anticipate anything like what you've composed. I tip my hat to you. This is excellent. You've used BIAB and Realtracks in ways that I can't remember hearing on the forum before. Really creative work!

All the best,
Noel

Hi Noel, Thank you, that is so kind of you to say and very much appreciated. I hear a lot of songs on here from the real BIAB/RB experts like yourself and often marvel at the RT wizardry. It was also very useful to get feedback from other folks here about the original song being too short and I think the final version feels much more complete now.

Cheers,
Rec
