Hey everybody!
Hope you all are doing great.
I'm back in action again  :dance: and was looking for vocalists to do some collaborations. The kind of music i'm writing AND actually some WIP tracks I'd like to have real vocals inside are below.

Since i've started to release my music on Spotify i could also collaborate with someone who could help me reaching the masses (like a manager maybe?) in such case details would be talked out in private. Any advices are also welcomed  :blackgrin:

anyway here are some of the mentioned tracks (first two are still private - i trust that they won't get shared outside the forum):

https://soundcloud.com/tanju-demirhan-music/the-desert-2/s-A7Ayzj9i7sN

https://soundcloud.com/tanju-demirhan-music/synthwave-2-song-idea-wip/s-3aXiAXvlllZ

https://soundcloud.com/tanju-demirhan-music/last-bastion    <- that one isn't private

So I hope someone of you might be interested. If not - still thank you for taking your time and reading through my topic  :D

@TDM  - welcome back. Will listen asap, and offer my advice. With regard to private links on the Forum, by default our posts here are public. If we would like to have postings here only after login, that'd require a bit of Technical Wizardry from @budhabuilding  @Mar T.  :pompom: ::)

@TDM - listening to "The Desert 2 - WIP" - sounds exciting. I already hear vocals. It has tags #metal #movie #trailer #videogame
what kind of vocals would you like to add to his track?

@oorlab well to be honest i'm open to a lot of stuff. I mean i guess i'll let that decision to the singer. It should just fit to the overall flow of the track. Maybe something cinematic, even close to the one i already use in the song. Would even replace the current vocals entirely if someone manages to pull of something similar

Hey there, I'd be interested in trying out some vocal ideas with your track - Last Bastion. I can hear lots of melodies popping out.

Here is an idea of how I sing - the song also has the word 'last' in it:

Let me know what you think - maybe the singing does/dosen't work for you :-)

Hey @CarlDavies

I had a listen to your song - I like it  :D it's great!
I'd be totally up for a collab with you  ;D

I'm already totally curious about your ideas  :dance:

Hey @TDM glad you're liking the style...

Just a couple of questions before I start  :)

- is it possible to get a backing track I can drop onto Logic? I promise its safe and you have the copyright :-)

- What was the emotion/feeling you had behind the song ? - it seems to be about reflection, sincerity, open feelings, some serious decisions...

- Its sounds cinematic - definitely backing track stuff I think...what do you think?

- do I need to write the lyrics? I start with random stuff to get the melody then lyrics hopefully take shape

Cheers!

Carl

I've enable the download on the Soundcloud stream. you should be able to download it now  ;)

About the emotion - well... I can't really say. Normally i just start with a song and it shapes itself so i think it's up to you to give emotions with your lyrics.
I normally focus on cinematic songs, yes. Especially the "epic orchestral" genre. No idea if i'm good at it but anyway.

I think best would be working in a way you're comfortable with. You're really free on this, I mean it's a collab and not a comission  :D you should bring in your own signature as well  ;)

@TDM thanks for getting back!

Let me just reassure you - you are VERY good at this, the feel of this piece is pretty exquisite - you've kept a lovely flow and rhythm despite all the electronica you're handling here! The dynamics work so well, which is why the melodies are just slapping me in the face right now  :loveit:

Thanks for allowing freedom on this - I just need to get into my little studio one evening this week and will share back the draft via soundcloud if that's ok?

Bear with me the first pass of lyrics will be a bit silly but you'll get the melody....

@CarlDavies thank you  :D you know I just start to lose motivation sometimes and ask myself if I'm not good enough because for a couple of years now I still didn't get quite the success I hoped for.

Yes, I guess sharing via Soundcloud would be the best way to do it.

And don't worry about the lyrics  :D I'm pretty sure you will do a great job  ;)

@TDM Here you go - first attempt at vocals. I seen to have a structure worked out - you've done a great job!

Lyrics are draft and need more work, tell me what you think of the melody etc. ;D

Rough master, rough mix so please don't read anything into that :-)

private link: https://soundcloud.com/carldaviesbiz/landr-last-bastion-balanced-medium/s-9PRdLiGU6K2

Here is the structure I worked out:

V1
—

I’m waiting, sick and tired
Of the way you come closer
Wanting, Wanting to be fired up
When you come down

V2
——

Waking , waking is hard
When you’e over the moon
You challenge the words
You challene the words I say, today

Pre-Chorus
——————
Say what you want
And say what comes into your mind
Wall of light you see

Chorus
———-

Lifting up on your mind
Giving up all the time/ fipalestine
Love breaks you away

Giving up alll the time
Unbelieveable tracer and decay

V3
——

I’m watching, you’re still and reclined
But the force stops me from touching
Yearning, yearning to sacrifice
My everything to you

Bridge
———

Pre-Chorus
——————
Say what you want
And say what comes into your mind
Wall of light you see

Chorus
———-

Lifting up on your mind
Giving up all the time/ fipalestine
Love breaks you away

Giving up alll the time
Unbelieveable tracer and decay
