Time Is Everything

An online friend, Ian, composed & recorded a Piano/Strings arrangement... he contacted me, and asked if I was interested in a collab... I said "yes, thank you... I love what I'm hearing"... so I processed his original tracks and added Bass, Guitars, Lyrics & Vocals,
BIAB Session Magicians.
RealTracks in song: ~686:Organ, B3, Background Pop Ev 120
RealTracks in song: ~1435:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm JazzFunkGroovinChords Ev16 110
MIDI Drums :9 Room Drum Kit (9)
RealDrums will be substituted :RockEven16: a: Snare, HiHat b: Snare, Ride
All feedback is welcome...

Lyrics
Time is a mystery,
we think we know, but we can’t agree how it works at all,
like a wave, does it rise and fall, or is it linear?
or does it even move at all?
It’s a mystery
Like the air we breathe, Time is everything, to me.

Time is running, Time stands still. Time is money, no Time to kill.
Time is slipping, slipping away, Time of our lives, Time of the day.
Time is everything
Time is old, Time is new, Time is different for me and you.
Time is near, Time is far, Time is now, whenever you are.

It’s a mystery we can feel but cannot see.
We can’t hear it but we know that it must be.
Like the air it must be something we all need.

Time is short, Time is long, the timing right or the timing is wrong.
Time is slow, Time is fast, Time is future, and Time is past
Time is everything

Time is curved, Time is straight, Time is early, and Time is late.
Time is everything.

Nice - I like the lyric, and the vocals and harmonies are excellent.

Nice guitars as well. laugh

The vocal was a bit further back in the mix than I would like, but that's pretty subjective.

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

Hi Bloc-Head,

This is a very good song and very well put together.

I agree with Dave - the vocals (lead and harmony) are way back in the mix.

I would love to hear a remix.

Best Regards
Nigel

Terrific job, all the parts were interesting on their own, but they also came together so well. Nice intro and ending. Primo work!

Excellent song! Very well written and arranged.

I really like all the parts you added, great guitar, bass, and vocal.

For me the vocal sits in the mix just about where it should be, like David said, it's subjective.

Really well done!

Love the lyric. Vocals are great but a little lost in the heavy instrumental tracks which are also good.
Should be an easy fix and it's a winner.

BC,
Kick #ss tune! A collaboration gone right. Super harmony -> chord changes. Big arrangement! I am not sure if you done something to vocals or not, from the comments above, they are positioned well for my taste. Enjoyed it. Thank you for sharing.

Wow, strong rock song with some intriguing progressive rock elements. Mysterious subject, even after hearing the song time remains mystery, for some reason time flies too fast while listening and the song seems to end too soon smile
I enjoyed the chord progression.
Excellent powerful vocal delivery. The instrumentation is lush and the mix is very clean.

Outstanding and professional sound. bloc-head. So glad you agreed and noticed the potential in what Ian sent you. Dynamic changes developed very well with the perfect instrumentation and vocals. What a terrific track!!


Enjoy whatever happens!

Thanks Dave, I tend to agree with you on the Vox level, but appreciate everyone's feedback...
BTW, I was blown away by your collaboration with Torrey, and Marty... that is a killer track.

Thanks for the feedback, Misha... just a bit of delay on the vocal... I'm so glad you liked the song & production... it was done quite awhile ago.

bloc-head,

What a beautiful track! This production is off the charts good! This is like a Steve Winwood song with members of Yes performing it...that was my immediate thought!

This is one of the best songs I've heard on the forum! Your work is being done at a high level! I enjoyed it! Thanks, Torrey

- Strong harmony.

- Stadium filling epic mix.

- Really cool the way the keys introduce and tag the song.

All meaning we found this an outstanding production and really enjoyed it!
