Snow Song
on: January 23, 2021, 00:20:26
Found the 3 guitar parts on my KorgD888 (a digital 8track recorder that is pleasant when I dont want to record with the computer, it has real faders, knobs and buttons - see https://www.soundonsound.com/reviews/korg-d888 )
that I edited a bit in Cubase and added harmonica and strongs. Then I remembered thta yesterday I had written down a few lines about Snow. It fitted quite well.

now song

Snow is descending
Brancing out
Fill the world
with a cover of silence
from moist to crystal
A shiny endless glow.

The hour is getting late
The world is getting full.
Will you be there?
   With me
       in this snow.

Ya know @oorlab   "moist" is one of the most hated of English words today.  Yet, you used it and still managed to make something beautiful.

This is a nice smooth jazz kind of jam.

I actually like lyrics too.

It is a nice winter tune.

A Robert Wyatt-y delivery of the vocals.
I like it a lot.

And I will certainly delve into this Korg thing as my hard disk recorder seems to be nearing its end.

Very nice piece of work @oorlab
Kind regards, Gus

@LePlongeur  @Bill from November Sound
thanks for your reaction.
Robert Wyatt I heard mentioning before - must discover a bit about his music.
Any tips?
"Moist" - I didn't know that it was a hated word. I checked NYTimes for a use of the term in the last month

"With their sour cream-laden batter, they’re about as tender and moist as cake gets. And the nubby blanket of cinnamon-scented crumbs on top is as sweet as icing, but crunchier, and easier to eat out of hand in the morning while the caffeine kicks in."

I may have to read this a few times to fathom the possible double entendre...but it seems quite harmless...

Oh @oorlab   not really a double entendre  .... more about the sound of it ... like it's un ugly sounding word I think.  :-\     

Probably search on twitter and you'll see "moist haters" there.

Sounds good in your song, though.

relaxing song @oorlab, perhaps add the lines and chords of:

"Will you be there?
   With me
       in this snow""

to the song at the end?

nice!  ::headphone:: ::headphone:: ::headphone:: ::headphone::

@Bill from November Sound   - ah - I see - it reminded me 'soundwise' to hoist - like in the Beach Boys song. I will keep moist out of my next lyrics. Is toast in your ears also sounding the same way as moist?

@Dutchbeat - yes, If I could figure out the chords. It was a 3way guitar improvisation to test out a new guitar. Songwise repeating some lines at the end makes very much sense.

Delicious  ::heart:: ::heart:: ::heart::

@Dutchbeat , I remember the Korg in your cellar, how you've got some loud sound out of it putting the golden plug into the wrong entrance
..inventing a special sound, used in lot's of your songs. Brings back memories....the Korg
Merry Christmas

Very cool - and how nice to hear a harmonica again... very chilled, laid back vibe - love the sound of the pick on the strings. Just enough of everything.

I really like the guitar playing in this one.  They may be a bit loud compared to the other instruments, but it also could be the earbuds Im listening on.  Very cool that you turned this from an improv into a working song.  Very nice

@Knate thanks for giving it a spin and sharing your thoughts. In a next mix I could lower the guitars a bit. I checked it on the room monitors and headphones, but a check in the car or on earbuds could well give more input for remix...
