Silent Moments
on: July 03, 2022, 04:04:25
Hey Kitchen folks ! . . . I did a collaboration recently with a super creative guitar player (mark alan skinner). This actually started as an acoustic guitar strumming thing I created around a campfire , I recorded it when I got home from the camp trip to keep the idea in my head, and it was lurking around my studio for a few years. So, I shared it with  Mark, made some vocal + lyrics . . . and Mark came up with some really cool guitar bits.
Let us know what you think . . .

Great work @popitup the vibe and the mix of the guitars is excellent. Cool lyrics and vocal delivery.  ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb::

I’m hearing a slight “crackle” on the vocal track… it might need a Low Pass filter above 10KHZ … or it could be fighting a bit with the guitars in that high range?

So much about this is Radio Ready!  Definitely a Keeper  :thumbsup:

Such a beautiful song to start the day! ::heart:: @popitup

The whole piece fits perfectly together and the vocals nicley  match the expression of the guitar,  easy  but with a touch of melancholy. And I can understand every word of the lyric clearly, which is really not the rule for me as a non-native English speaker. :ok:
The whole mix seems to my ears (caution am only a layman :D) very well mixed.
A really good collaboration! Will we hear more from you one day?

@1roomstudio  . . . thanks so much for the comments. A lot of favourable things came together all at once to get this one completed, wish I could duplicate that pathway every time a song comes along, but it doesn't always work so smooth as this for me. You must have very tuned ears to hear a 10k crackle in this thick mix . . . thanks, I'll have a close listen to the vocal track, maybe let my mixing robots search and destroy it.

@Mo  . . . thank you so much ! . . . it is most appreciated, especially because of my appreciation for your work as well. I had some serious help with this one, mixing and instrumentation, such a rewarding collaboration. Glad you picked up on the interplay of the vocal and guitar, Mark really impressed me when he sent me some guitar tracks !

And yes, that "touch of melancholy" an old flame, many years ago . . .
"Will we hear more from you one day?" . . . sure, but next one is gonna' be more uptempo !!
Thanks again

A very very nice 70’s vibe. I like this kind of guitar oriented music a lot. A nice collab too.
Keep em coming please!
Kind regards, Gus
