Hi all,
Here's a french song sung by Julia with her high purity voice.

https://soundcloud.com/christian-devienne/linsouciance-avec-julia

Lyrics translation :

Where is the carelessness that I loved so much
The one I felt when I was a child
It left my life, without saying anything, forever
It won't come back. Yet I'm waiting for it

A merry-go-round, hair in the wind
A giggle at the top of a slide
A walk with my grandparents
A hug in Mom's arms

Where is the carelessness that I loved so much
The joy that I feel, it is no longer that of before
But sometimes it's weird, my memory allows me
To relive for a moment the carelessness of a child

Chris,

Very nice chanson!
A very traditional and pure chanson.
Vocals are also very good.
I think it's a very chanson-like singing style.
As if I'm listening to Marie Laforet songs in the 60's.
I really like old chansons, so I fell in love with this song right away.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Thanks Shigeki,
You're right! Marie Laforêt was one of the more beautiful voices of French chanson.

Beautiful chanson, and you put in some really good arrangement ideas.

Julia has the perfect voice for this genre. Great work by all involved.

Very nice Christian. I love the arrangement and mix. That acoustic bass and finger picking guitar sure work well together, and those bells or chimes give it a magical music box feel. I really like this post!

Chris, This is an outstanding piece of music.
Great vocal and instrumentation - brilliant
A perfect mix also!


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.

Christian,

Beautifully done . . . what a lovely vocal by Julia. The production is outstanding, and I love that little music box effect that you’ve added, accentuating the childhood references throughout. Great stuff!

All my best to you,

That's great. The chord progression is really good, and the instruments play it so well. And a beautiful vocal.

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.

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

Hi Chris ...

Such a beautiful song! You and Julia should be very proud of this. Julia's voice is so soft and pleasant. And I love pretty songs written in 3/4 time. I enjoyed this very much.

I lived in Germany 12 years in the 1970s and 1980s. I used to visit Metz quite often and went to Paris twice. This song reminded me of Paris. Thanks for the lovely memory.

Lovely and nostalgic. I can understand how Julia's voice can be so inspirational, very intimate interpretation. Excellent chord progression and the music box melody completes the childhood trip.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

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."
