Hi DB and Fischermans,

great song, beginning reminds me of Lindisfarne, the synths remind me of lapping water. I think its good enough as it is.

Hey DB, Fisch, this is really good guys, really good, a bit like massive attack.

Classy, mature, sparse, uncluttered use of electronic production DB, you're getting better and better, I really mean that, this is very good.

Very well done

Hi DB,

I think the accompanying music you have created is top notch and is a perfect setting for the song. I wouldn't change anything from what you have done. My only negative comment would be that I don't like the effects you have put on the lead vocal. As an experiment, take all the effects off the vocal and see how it sits with the arrangement. At the moment I think the electronic, busy backing together with the effects on the voice are too distracting and disorientating. I think the combination of a "straight" vocal together with your other worldly music could work well. Worth a go anyway. My only other suggestion would be to work out a little musical figure on either a keyboard or guitar and feature that intermittently throughout the song. Almost like a motif which will carry the listener through the song . Maybe just 8 notes in a simple refrain.

I hope this helps and well done for creating such a lovely piece.

Best wishes


M

Such a great song.... I think Montydog's idea of an intermittent motif is interesting also...

Nice also to see Montydog posting if I may say....

WOW guys :o this is awesome :) you've embellished Alexander's beautiful song with a very lovely backing track DB  :) not too busy...very tasteful  8)
I agree with Allan though...the effects on the vocals are a little distracting...you could maybe use a bit of reverb at specific places, like "it's time to say goodbye to the moon"
I would also try panning them here and there, as they are all all coming from the left, on my headphones anyway :)
I also think Allan's suggestion of some little piano riff, in specific places would be cool  8) but what you've done so far is really good :) KUDOS GUYS  :)

Hi DB,

You've definitely added to Fisch's track - nice ambient textures. It does have that sea/water quality to it.
On the vocal - may be some delay trails on the odd last word as it drifts off into the ether?

Sounding great.
