New Song - Kuiper Belt
on: August 28, 2019, 15:02:04
hello gang,
this song could also have fit under live performance since it was written(improvised), performed and recorded at the same time on the fly. it's no commercial hit but probably the most honest thing I've written and I'm proud of it.  A dream come true really, to write/record in this way then release it. hope some of you can relate to the concept and the song.  ps. i was here about a year ago (different username) and didn't forget the songs i listened to, or the writers.. so you have been heard.  i think that's all some of us need right?  To know we've been heard.

Anyway, this song is called Kuiper Belt:

i setup a bandcamp page too but doubt it's gonna be generating sales. i hate promotion. if it does get a few sales maybe i'll be able to pay off some debt that i've accumulated pursuing ways to get my musical ideas fulfilled over the years.  There's an uplifting side of me too that I need to get out..but find it harder to do without sounding too contrived.

Hey Adam @blueskadae .....I really like the sparse feeling of this song. Very cool build up and release at around 1:50.

thanks @Leonard Scaper for listening.  glad you liked the sparse concept of floating in deep space, that was the feeling i had from it.  just happened like that.

i had added a surprise twist ending the next day (making it 3:58 long and gave a conclusion to the thing), but that was overdubbed and i went nuts with the vocals, in a higher register that i actually prefer to sing in..  however, i decided to chop it off and excluded the ending as i wanted to keep it to the live performance only... with a cliffhanger.

i've done much more musical work than this but still felt like sharing it.

hey Adam,

I enjoyed this, welcome back.  Brave sound but it totally works.  Wow @ 1.55 you sound kinda like Robert Plant!

I like the vulnerable sounding vocals at the beginning (and end )@blueskadae .Your voice seems to drift behind the guitar for awhile until that break out moment @ 1:50.
Its a brave way to create a song - there will be moments of revelation and space that`s unpredictable.
Please keep sharing here- someone is listening.

Robert

I really like this one. The pace of it all is very cool and your vocals and emotion it really lifts the track. Cool stuff.

Heard it, @blueskadae  a perfect song and well recorded. The vocals sit really well in the mix. Agreed with Olbigead's comment on soundcloud  that it has a cool Buckley vibe.

As you said, you're singing higher than you normally would and I really think it's a mistake. You've got a decent song here, very honest but the vocals are waaay to high to be enjoyable to listen to. I really like how the song builds.

@realkevm i didn't say I was singing higher than normal.  i go much higher than this actually.
i'm surprised you are saying something negative like this about my vocals, as i've had nothing but unsolicited compliments about my voice and singing over the past year when i reach out to people.  to each his own though

I'm sure in your original post you said you were, have you edited it? Maybe I misread.
Anyway I didn't say the vocals were bad, I'm the last person to criticize someone else's singing. I said you are singing to high for me, personally. Others might agree some may not but you've put your song here for critique so there you go.

You have a really good song I'm just offering my thought on how you could make it even better.

@realkevm i believe you misread something i wrote in reply #2.  i kind of figured my wording might come across wrong. no worries.

i was actually saying what you hear from me in Kuiper Belt is my most natural voice.  i prefer to sing even higher (think Robert Plant/Jeff Buckley/Prince high - maybe even a little higher), probably because it cuts through a mix well and i can listen back to a high register vocal and feel like it isn't me.  but using super high register vocal is for effect and doesn't suit all situations.

if you don't like the sound of this particular song and the way i'm singing in Kuiper Belt, it's not something i can change or want to. that's about as real as it gets for me, because it isn't a voice I put on to impress.  it's what's there when I open my mouth.  i can go lower but it's again, something i'd be doing for effect.

i shared the song here not for critique to make it better, but just to share it.  if you want to offer feedback that's 100% okay.  i'm just letting you know i won't be changing who i am.. and wanted to clarify what i wrote earlier.. this is my actual voice.

thanks for listening
Adam
