I found this style "_Bollybt" while actually looking for something else, but when I listened to it I knew I had to try to work with this. So I fooled around and added a few things.

The song is in a traditional style (Mohanam Raga) of South Indian music, singing using the pentatonic scale.

The star of this track is Andy Leftwich, who I (miss-)used to give the singer some feedback (he can be found on RT2549). I am sure he didn't imagine himself playing on a track like this. :-)

Let me know if I am ready for the big Bollywood screen... probably not grin

Sort of India meets Ireland when the fiddle shows up.

Nicely done! smile

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

"Will Josef"...

My, my, my, but there's a whole lot of adventurous music popping up in the User's Forum these days!!!

Your "Will Goes to Bollywood" number satisfied my always-open ear for music composed outside of the Western tradition. And, on top of that, you had enough imagination to add some Celtic charm to the mix through the addition of that dancing violin. I absolutely LOVE to listen to music that blends genres, musical traditions, and just plain-old, "Well, what if we throw this in there???"

Round-and-round, and round, he goes, but where "Will" will stop, nobody knows laugh !!!

Dee-lighted,

LOREN

You held my attention throughout the entire piece and I enjoyed the listen, well done!

Hi Will,

you should see me: I'm sitting in front of my monitors, grinning, eyes closed, fidgeting and now - can that be true - the air starts to smell like cumin, coriander cinemon and cardamom.

Will, it's so great and I admire and envy you for having the guts to give something like this a try.

I'm ready for a double-feature !!!

Soooooo good...

Take care,

Stefan

Wow - what a unique piece of music smile Definitely a breath of fresh air for the forums here, and I love how there is slight celtic influence with the fiddle too. Definitely unique but that isn't a bad thing in my books.

You should be proud of this one - thanks for sharing!

Well done Will! This sounds very full and found the rhythm is easy to follow. Thoroughly enjoyed the strings to harmonize everything, and it sounds quite authentic!

David, Loren, Dave, Stefan, Tano, Deryk and Joe,

A big thank you to all of you for listening and writing encouraging comments. I appreciate that a lot!
I find great fun in experimenting with the different styles in Biab and it is really nice when there are people who are willing to spend a few minutes to listen and comment.

Blushing a little bit here...

Thanks again,
Will

Boy did I like this. The violin sets so nice in the song. I remember reading an article from George Harrison talking about learning Eastern music that time was so different than the 4/4 timing he was used to. This was a very cool song. Well done

Thank you, Scott!

Yes, I like the violin in this mix as well - it's actually a compliment to PGMusic for making it possible to include a violin, which for sure was not intended for this kind of music. smile

Thank you for listening!
Will

Will,

This is fantastic! I love the way that the various musical elements align and create a very engaging journey of sound that's different, inventive and adventurous. You've done a great job with this. Your composing, arranging and production shine! I'd also like to compliment your singer on doing a superb job.

All the best,
Noel

Will, good stuff.
Enjoyed it much!

I always liked fusion music. It is almost always comes as a pleasant surprise.
This tune reminded me of one of my favorite fusion bands Mytha (Indo-Swedish) They have some wild collaborations. Will, you are on right track smile

Thank you for posting!

Noel, Peter and Rustyspoon,

Thank you very much for your nice comments! I'm really happy that you took time out of your probably busy calendar to listen to this track.

@Noel
Yes, she is an amazing singer in that particular style.

@Rustyspoon

Thanks to all of you for listening!
Will

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
