Temperature Rising is just a little quick and dirty fun song I did for the heck of it. A flashback to the 1950s?
Some of you "old timers like me" will know where I got the idea for the song and the song title!

BiaB style - Night Rain MIDI Noir Jazz Swing
Tempo - 90 BPM

I deleted the bass and string tracks and modified the remaining tracks so they better fit the song.
Drums - Steven Slate's SSD-5 = Jazz Brushes.
Percussion - Kontakt - =Brio Ensemble
Piano - Arturia = B3 - Jazz Organ
Guitar - UVI Workstation = Plug Sound Pro - Jazz Guitar Full


I am playing my Squire P-Bass and via my breath and keyboard controllers the Swam alto flute. The finger snaps are wavs.


I just posted a selfie and all of the responses were get well soon!

Hi, Mario.

Ha! I haven't heard alto (or bass flute) on a track for a long time. That "overblown" sound really well works.

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

I'm not an old timer so I have no idea of your idea. But somehow this reminded me of Henry Mancini type of jazz. Cool mood even when temperature is rising. The bass and snaps create mystery, the organ brings nice 60's feel and the alto flute adds excitement for the strange thing that is approaching. Clever stops, feels like that thing is stopping and checking that all entrances are clear.

Mario,

You always write the most interesting pieces of music. I love the flute & bass in this one. An excellent mix tops it off.

Great stuff!

Another really interesting original sound composition, Mario - like a musical poem. You have a unique creative flair. Positively weirdly, the second your track finished someone else's song auto-played and as it was the same tempo and pace I thought it was still yours and I thought, "What brilliant idea! Instead of having a song with an instrumental solo, why not have an instrumental with a vocal solo!" I wish I'd paused to find out what the following song was as it fit perfectly to yours.


Some favourite Waoist Adages:
#1: Play on the Way.
#17: Ask not for whom the flower blooms, it blooms for you.
#69: Bring consciousness to it.
#74: On the road to effortlessness, effort must be made.
#105: Be Love Now, the rest will come on its own.

Mario, great job! Think I've caught a fever now...

Like your open arrangement and the breath controller sounds really nice, again. All the BiaB instruments sound extra fine, and the bass really shines, of course. Another nice one!

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.

Mario,

Cool composition. Nice choices on sounds. Fresh.
Janne got it right with the Mancini comment... Movie theme!
One of your best.

A fever pitch for sure. What a terrific experiment with very intertaining results. A highly sucessful experiment. High temperature. Cool bass amd the whole picture you paint is full of musical asthetics. You even captured the sound of the reel to reel running out before the fade.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Thanx David. I actually tried another flute sound but liked the alto the best. I'm glad you noticed and like the alto flute and the nuances I added.

Thanx so much for this very kind review Janne. My idea was from the Peggy Lee song "Fever". I'm glad that you enjoyed it. I really appreciated that Henry Mancini comment, that is a huge compliment so thank you very much.

Thanx so much Bob. I do like to experiment with different genres and BiaB is the reason that I can! I'm glad you noticed my bass as it is not my main instrument.

Yep, you got my idea for this song Marty. I'm glad that you, an expert bassist, liked my little bass parts! I never thought about the ending like that but you are correct!

It's a bit reminiscent of film music. Inspector Mario leads the investigation.

HiMario,

To my ears, it sounds like a mix of early 50s pop and early 70s pop rock. But whatever else it is, is pretty darn original, creative, and a super listen. The nice thing about your posts is we never know what to expect, but we know it's going to be enjoyable.

Nice!!!

Alan
