Dark Rhodes track - Melting Ice - Collab
on: September 17, 2018, 12:48:29
« Last Edit: November 10, 2018, 02:27:30 by Mar T. »
After that @Pleudoniem pointed me on this great dark rhodes sound, I created this little tune.... (should be working but couldn't help it  ;))



Would love to collaborate with some of you to add some vocals and solo instruments.

@Mark Luto and @Mar T. may be some vocals
@oorlab would love to get the solo synth out and put in a nice violin solo
@Pleudoniem maybe a better bass line in 6/8

But any suggestion and anybody is welcome

wav of the mix can be downloaded at:

Just set all my solo  music free at https://budhabuilding.bandcamp.com

Sounds cool @budhabuilding  - touch of Portishead in the intro, with a more jazzy followup. Count me in.
Loose track without drums available?

OK, nice. I'll see if I can paint you a bass line. I cannot escape work so easily, so I'll take a look at it this weekend. I'll also be busy with a lapsteel project then, my dear @oorlab

Can I try a guitar riff in it?

That sounds extremely nice @budhabuilding ! ::headphone::
And what a great idea to make a rather big kitchen collaboration out of it. Cool! Karma to you!
Great that @oorlab and @Pleudoniem are on board already. Im gonna try and find a singing melody and come up with some lyrics. Would love to sing it together with @Mar T. .
Im extremely busy with work at the moment, but will try and find some time for this... ;)

Hi @budhabuilding  - @Pleudoniem  @Mark Luto  and @Mar T.
had some fun playing violin alongside the tracks. I left out the drums to get a more cinematic feel.
Here is a mix of how I heard it
and the violin track separate dry in case anyone wants to use parts of it. It is not flawless playing - given more time I can improve the playing and recording for sure. But this preliminary take can may be help to inspire some lyrics or vocal melody.

Hey @budhabuilding , @oorlab , @Mark Luto !

Hans, what a nice composition man! And Dick, I looove what you did with that violin! Fantastic! Certainly gives an idea!
Is there already an idea what the lyric should be about? Sounds a bit dark, sad..
Challenging chords to find a nice singing melody, but with the right lyrics I think @Mark Luto and I can manage to some very soft singing. If time permits of course! Wonderful work!

Sure, that is what it is meant for. Quantizing an audio track, wonder how you can do that. Enlighten me oh master. In the third part the violin may have shifted against the rest as I put the BPM right, halfway. I will rerecord that part and send it separately, just to be sure.

As for song subject - I felt it being a bit about a detective, possibly investigating some mystery in The Ardennen...

Wow, the violin part is wonderful @oorlab ! ::headphone::

To me, the song sounds like something cold and sad. So I started searching and found this poem by Andrew Blakemore. (Sorry @oorlab , its no crime story... :D ) How do you feel about working with an existing text? If we do, we should probably ask the poet first...

Its about three animals, so if wed use the poem it would probably be a piece for 3 singers, and we could make the chorus for 3 voices. Just an idea. Anyway, I made a little draft recording of the first verse. Don't know if it's any good, so let me know!

https://soundcloud.com/markluto/melting-ice-draft-for-budhabuilding-collab/s-v47YF

Thats the whole poem:

Melting Ice

I am a mighty polar bear
Who never did do wrong,
I raised a family of my own
And once my will was strong,
I liked to wander far and wide
Across the caps I'd roam,
But every year things seemed to change
It feels no longer home.
My world is falling to the sea
I've had to pay the price,
I have nowhere that I can live
My land is melting ice.

I am an Emperor penguin
And I have a tale to tell,
I raised a family of my own
Together we did dwell,
Each egg I cradled carefully
While bitter winds did blow,
But every year things seemed to change
I watched it slowly go.
My world is falling to the sea
I've had to pay the price,
I have nowhere that I can live
My land is melting ice.

I am a lonely Arctic seal
Who's resting on the shore,
So many of us used to come
In years that passed before,
But sadly now I'm all-alone
My friends no longer here,
Yet still I wait in yearning
That one day they shall appear.
My world is falling to the sea
I've had to pay the price,
I have nowhere that I can live
My land is melting ice.

@Mark Luto  really nice vocal idea... hear some nice harmony's possibilities in the chorus. ;-)
If you want to copy and cut parts to get the lyrics in just go ahead.  :ok:

Sounds good! Why not ask Andrew Blakemore. But if he says no - or doesn't react we could write something in similar phrasing / syllables / rhytmh - possible about ice on the alps...
