Hi, the kind members of Biab,

I'm uploading new soundscape to my beloved site. The title is "Born to die" or more exactly, To born, to life and to die. The cycle of life is joyful but also sad. With the covid, I lost some very dear friends and I pay tribute to them with this unambiguous soundtrack but where I tried to share emotions. My working method is always the same. I put 4 minor chords in my vst biab. I isolated one or more lines of notes and I used vsts. I reworked some lines taking inspiration from certain realtrack midi files like the mandolin where I spotted the arpeggio areas to use them with harp and violins vst. Of course when I start from an instrument, I try to adapt it to the chosen vst. It's a sad melody. Thank you in advance, to the courageous listeners who will leave me a positive or negative comment on this musical piece.

It is just incredible you can get the sounds get. The production on this song is first class. The music just floated back and forth from speaker to speaker I am a huge fan of your music.

Hi Scott C,

Thank you for your nice comment which makes me happy. This background music does not seem to meet the expectations of club members. I am thinking of withdrawing it to come back with compositions better suited for this musical platform.

That is an amazing tribute to those you lost. We understand completely as we experienced the same.

Jani,
To be born, to live and to die...
Naître, vivre et mourir...
Geboren zu werden, zu leben und zu sterben...
出生、生活和死亡...
Να γεννηθείς, να ζήσεις και να πεθάνεις...
Да се родиш, да живиш и да умреш...
Được sinh ra, sống và chết...

It translates well.
The arpeggios at the beginning are cool and their return adds some excellent punctuation i your statement about the basic cycle.
The bitter sweet string lines on the last passage remind me of the soundtrack of Shooting The Past - Adrian Johnston's work for Poliakoff's miniseries productions is always evocative and 1st class...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wobZ5jGL0No

Very good production. This would work great in a movie, obviously. Moving music.

Magnificent piece. The emotions are laid bare in the music. Where others like me use lyrics to convey emotion, you have the ability to convey your thoughts and feelings effectively through your music.

Hi Ezekiel's Storm,

Thank you for your description which fits well with my way of working. I'm not a good singer and a poet so I try to do the best I can with ambiences and instrumental sounds.

Oh, man, Derochette. You are so good at these musical landscapes. What a great, creative sound. This is the kind of stuff that makes good movies great, and makes the instrumental soundtrack worth it.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
