One Last Try


I wrote this several months ago. It was a submission for the opening soundtrack of a TV talent show. It didn't get selected. The graphic on the Soundcloud post is my of my older brother, Ronnie. He passed away last summer from recurring cancer. About six months before he died he said, "I'll give it one last try" - referring to another round of chemo. RIP, Ronnie. You were the best big brother I could have had.

Real nice track, and a great tribute to your brother. Alan, you have a tremendous skill for selecting/arranging/placing the RT components--it's something I really admire in your work. The results you get are coherent and additive to the end product. I can definitely see this as thematic music, but it's eminently listenable as a stand-alone piece. Enjoyed it a lot!

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

I love the clip at which this thing moves. Great energy. Sounds wonderful on both phones and monitors. Classy progression and very nice production. Very much enjoyed, though I might have a harder time getting to sleep.

Superb work Al. Really nothing to add to above or what we always say about your BiaB productions.

Anybody that harbors doubt about the value of BiaB needs to go to SC and listen to you for a while. Case closed.

Whether selected or not regarding the sync opp it is a wonderful tribute to your brother. May he rest in peace.

Great listen(s)!

Nice production. Too bad it didn't get picked. You threw your hat (song) into the ring at least. Hat's off to you for that. Condolences on your brother's passing.

Hi Tano

I sure do appreciate all that! Thank you very much! I just do what I can with the limited knowledge I have of this great software.

Wishing you the very best. Be safe ...

Hi Tangmo ...

Thank you very much! I'm more than delighted you enjoyed it. But, not apologies if it kept you from sleeping! That means, I think, I got the energy level close to where I was striving. Thanks for the nice words! Wishing you the best. Take care ...

Hi Dave ...

For whatever reason, these instrumentals just come to me. Sometimes I get lucky and they come out half-way decent. Thanks for the mixing comments ... as you know, my mixing process is almost Neanderthal! And thanks for the condolences. Ronnie was a fabulous singer who deserved a wider audience.

Best to you. Take care and be safe ...

Alan

Hey Guys!

I don't blush easily but your humbling comments caused it to happen. I guess we old farts have to hang together! But, I'm only old by numerical definition. My heart and my body still perform as though i were twenty years younger. Many sincere thanks! I appreciate the condolences. Ronnie was great talent with a much too narrow audience.

Take care and be safe ...

Alan

Thank you so much. My grandfather always told me that no one will say "Yes!" if you don't ask (in this case, submit). I appreciate the kind words and the condolences.

Wishing you the very best. Please be safe ...
