(Video) A New Page



This song was inspired by a strong feeling experienced during a Sunday walk about a new opportunity life has given. My lyrics are usually quite melancholy, but I hope this one brings more positive feelings, despite some of the clichés of the genre. Thanks to Miira for the touching interpretation of my vision, without her dedication to my music I wouldn't have made this song.

(Audio) Soundcloud: A New Page

MIDI: Cello (ST3) & Strings (GPO4) from style STR_QT44

Lyrics:

I walked blindfolded, couldn't see what
I was looking for to be drawn.
I was a poet stuck in-between chapters
couldn't find right way right day to move on.
You have to act when you get a chance
don't wait until the final dance
your turn is over before you realize
forget what ifs and improvise.

You turned a new page in my life
you opened my eyes to see
a whole new virgin scene right in front of me.
You gave me colors to paint the view
beautiful and unique to my art
on the blank canvas of my heart.

My mind was aging in the sunset
thought I couldn't feel a rousing breeze
but sometimes life catches you by surprise
gives a strange opportunity
for you to seize.
Don't hesitate to take a leap
to feel euphoria in deep
no more regret for choices of your past
nothing here is meant to last.

[Chorus]

Leaned on the wind
embraced the lift of air
you were there for a while
with one starry night to share.
Inspired
I made a song
wrote a poem
drew a flower
cast shallow things aside
didn't waste an hour.

You gave me words for my songline
the path across the fate of mine
I didn't need any signs to choose my track
I went ahead and didn't look back.

You captured a great ambiance, and Mira's work on the vocals is great & quite remarkable.

It was refreshing and definitely encapsulated a 'New Page'. The vision helped to illustrate to meaning of the song.

Everything about this is enjoyable.

Hello, Janne

Very beautiful song with nice vocal.
Especially the melody line is excellent.
It is also favorable to try various chord progressions.
Enjoyed my listen and watch a lot.

Best regards.

Really pretty song and nice video!! The vibe is wonderful. There is something dissonant going on in the 3rd and 4th chord from the start of the vocal. It happens again later with same changes. Mira has a really unique and pretty style, although she may be a bit pitchy at times. Really pretty and emotionally expressive song. Enjoyed much!! Take care. Greg

Thanks Greg for your valuable feedback, always pleasure to hear what you think. I'm glad you liked the song and the video. About the dissonant part, the song is in Eb key, in the 3rd bar there is a chord with a B note, and at the same time the melody plays Bb. That is intentional, I know it is not perfect, but quite close to my ears. I couldn't find anything that sounded better.

I really like the overall sound and mix
especially the guitars - nice
cool progressions, very pretty vocals
the melody sounds squeezed in on the end of some lines
but overall a very nice melody
a strong write
enjoyed

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® 2017

Three years ago we were just rounding up our BETA testers to help finish up the testing of our Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Mac!

With that version, we redesigned the main screen GUI, added support for popular .SFZ sound format as well as PG Music’s Hi-Q sounds (sforzando SFZ Synth.), added Natural Arrangements options and Hi-Q Guitar RealCharts, applied many, many, many enhancements to the existing powerful program features, and more! Read all about Band-in-a-Box® 2017 here.

Now, three years later, we're thrilled to say that we're already done BETA testing, and weeks into the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac release! Of course, that means we're having a SALE on Upgrade packages, but only until April 30th!

Band-in-a-Box® - Trombone RealTracks!

Happy National Trombone Players Day!

To all the trombone players out there - this is a day to celebrate you (no joke...)! Not a trombone player? Good news - if you have the Band-in-a-Box® UltraPAK, UltraPAK+ or Audiophile Edition, you have a two AMAZING trombone players in your band already!

Dennis Esson:
RealTracks Set 144: Dixieland – Fast Soloists
RealTracks Set 178: Dixieland - Medium Soloists

Ian McDougall:
RealTracks Set 13: Older Jazz Swing Soloists

Welcome to the team David!

Updated Song Titles Browser in Band-in-a-Box® 2020!

If you're looking for a Band-in-a-Box® Style in the feel of a familiar/popular song title, then the Song Titles Browser option in the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker is the perfect feature for you!

With Band-in-a-Box® 2020, we’ve added 3,400 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now 14,000 titles to search from!

Just type in a familiar song title or artist name - once you have found the song, press the [OK - Find Matching Styles] button. This will take you to the StylePicker window with styles that best match the tempo, feel, and genre of the selected song title.

Didn't find the song you were searching for? Post your title request to our Wishlist forum: Songs to add to Band-in-a-Box Titles database - we think that the 3,400 new titles added with Version 2020 is proof that we're paying attention!

Learn more about the different features of the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker here.

SongPicker Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac!

The Band-in-a-Box® SongPicker has been enhanced with our newest 2020 version!

The SongPicker now builds faster for large song lists (>30K and up to 60,000 songs). The [Song] button (or the [Open] button) now has 3 additional menu items to launch the SongPicker.

- Open SongPicker in Current Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the current folder of the last loaded song.
- Open SongPicker in Home Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the home folder, which is Applications/Band-in-a-Box/MySongs or as set in the SongPicker.
- Open SongPicker in Favorite Folder: This launches the Favorite Folder dialog which allows you to choose any previously used folder where a song was loaded from, and then open the SongPicker in that folder.

In the SongPicker, there is a new “Open in Home” option. If this is enabled, the SongPicker will always open in the home folder instead of the current folder when you press the default [Song] button to open the SongPicker.

Searching for songs matching a chord progression or melody has been enhanced. There are three new checkboxes: "Key must match exactly," "Chord Extension must match exactly", and "Time Signature must match."

Click here to jump to the SongPicker subject in our New Features video to learn more. (32:11)

(read more about this feature in our Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac Online Upgrade Manual.)
