A new track... (music)

Postby LeoDaV » Tue Aug 14, 2007 2:42 pm

I made a track about myself and my MS.

Listen to it here: Why

It's far from complete and it's badly mixed but I'm sure it will end up on my next album. But I wanted to give you all a preview :D Comments?... Please!

The song is not clear enough for me to understand what you are singing. Sorry.

Yeah.. it's a talkbox... so needs some more work on that... and I have an accent (being Dutch)

Why is my body eating me

Tell me why oh why tell me why

Hi Johan

The overall sound is interesting - I like it. But I cannot make out the vocals - not sure if it is a technical issue with the computer.
Keep doing what you love.

Very cool!! I like the beat +++. What I like the most is the fact that you improved on FTY720 because I am on the study too ,although I am sure I am on the placebo. Good luck in your endeavors. Don't let MS stop you, ever.. Carole

Hello Johan,
I agree with the others about the lyrics, but I love the Jean-Michel Jarre-type synth sounds!
It got me thinking: I know it's nothing to do with the general aim of this forum, but it might be fun to have a board where we can share our collective talents – photos, paintings, poems etc.
What do you think?

Thanks all for your comments.

The mix I made was just a quick mixdown of what I had at that moment. It will be mastered and then the overall sound will improve drastically.

The main problem with singing with a talkbox is you know what you sung. So another perceives it differently then yourself. It's just a sign I probably need to rerecord it and do it a little bit better :D

As for the JMJ style: I have to admit I once was a big fan and you can still hear it in my music...

@carolew: I'll continue with music as long as I'm able to. I still have partly numb hands and I really can't feel keys and strings not perfectly anymore but I won't give up!

Update...

Postby LeoDaV » Thu Sep 06, 2007 12:20 pm

Hi all!

The track has been remixed and is much much clearer now. It's now, in musical terms, in a pre-master stage. Meaning that the final step before it goes on CD (the master) still has to be done.

Love to hear responses!

I listened to the track when u first posted, but if your using synths and a computer, I am guessing u are using a sequencer, which would also have "step-record" I know I have blamed my MS for over use of this feature :oops:
