Where Horses run

I started with the music.
When it was done, I thought it had to be about something moving, a rhythm.
That's where the horses came in and the lyrics were there.
I asked Rob to sing the lead, because he's got a more expressive voice than I have. I confined myself to the backing vocals.
Rob took care of the final mix.
I made the video, Rob chose the filter.
As we posted this song on YouTube a few months ago, it is pure coincidence that there are two songs about horses on the forum now (rsdean - Falling horses) smile

This song is so beautiful that I listened to it over and over. Best thing I've heard from you two. Congratulations on a terrific tune. I wasn't so sure about the violin at 1:48, was that the Arabian loop? It seemed to have an unusual timbre to my ears. A very minor point, it didn't detract from my enjoyment of this wonderful piece.

Rob and Anne-Marie,

This song sounds super! Your vocals are as good as it gets! Love the arrangement with the waltz time signature...it's a perfect choice for this one! The instrumentation, especially the fiddle, are the right choices. Nothing distracts, it all fits! Great work!

Thanks, Torrey

Rob & Anne-Marie,
A lovely song concept with a sweet melody and marvelous vocals ( and harmonies).
I liked everything about the arrangement except the solo violin...perhaps it adds a little gypsy wildness,though, so will have another listen.
Beautiful images on the video.

Simply wonderful! The music, the video, and of course your great singing.
Great!
My only minor complaint is the violin solo, it doesn't feel like it's part of the band. But that's just a minor nit in a great arrangement.

Just an addition to my post:
The instrument that accompanies the entrance of the white horse, is the Loop Arabian Ceremony.
I wanted to "give" that horse an instrument of its own, to indicate that this is a special horse, the guide that is told about earlier, that will take you to a place that "looks\feels like" Eden.
It had to be clear, even if you didn't see the video, that something extraordinary is happening.

The be honest any vehicle that is used to carry your blended vocals will sound good.
This is a really good arrangement and melody with a good narrative and THOSE VOICES.
Je maakt een prachtig geluid.

I THINK there's a mic or something else that clicks off at the end...


Cheers

For me there’s no better place in the band than to have one leg in the harmony world and the other in the percussive. Thank you Paul Tutmarc and Leo Fender.

You two produced a wonderful waltz masterpiece.

Your harmonies are great, as was the lead vocal

The mix was spot on

The video really complimented the audio

One of if not your best to date

This has a lovely soft sound.
My only crit is the slight rush of lyric in "where horses run" which for me breaks up the smooth dreamlike flow of the song. My suggestion is to sing "where hor...ses run".
Other than that, wonderful.

Vic

Great galloping in three-quarter time. Love this song. Harmony is sooooo good. Your mix is perfect and the whole song is thoroughly enjoyable. I hear what Vic is talking about, but another way to look at it is that is the hook, and I like the way it trots right out there and sticks in the memory. One of the reasons why TuneMonger and I have played this song so much.


Enjoy whatever happens!

What a beautiful lyric and video to go with your beautiful vocals! And the harmony build was just lovely.

Janice was saying, “take us there too!” The waltz time was such a good combination with the galloping horses and the band sounds perfect to us.

We loved the Arabian fiddle loop that accompanied the handsome white horse guide.

We’re ready to go to that magical place!

Love the lyrics Anne-Marie. Excellent vocal. Loved how Rob delivered the vocal. Reminded me of a minstrel singer from early English folk tunes. Great story telling Awesome video.

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."
