My vocal song
Hey guys, I recently finished a song which is probably very much unlike what most of your listen to, but I thought I'd post it here to see what you think. (There's violin at the end so this is still technically allowed :D). I did everything myself, from songwriting to production to instrumentation (obviously).
(Edit: sorry for the lack of a hyperlink... I am technically challenged)
Help, how do you stop it repeating ad infinitum?! Seriously, I'm impressed. If it reminded me of anyone it would be Jack White.
Good stuff, Erik! Nice singing and nice tone with the violin. What did you produce it with?
Thanks for the words of encouragement!
Nice, Erik! It's cool when something can come together quickly, seemingly of its own accord.
Really nice, I‘ve enjoyed it very much!
Yes, wonderful. I am again reminded of my favorite quote about music. It was said by Tchaikovsky: "Music is not illusion. It is rather revelation. It's triumphant power is that it reveals beauties we find nowhere else, and the apprehension of them is not transitory, but a perpetual reconcilement of life."
Sander, I don't think such a deep quote can have any relationship to my music, but I sure appreciate that you feel it does :)
Do the words matter? Or do they have merely the significance of a laundry list?
The words do have meaning, but it's difficult to master it in such a way that they come out clearly without losing the subtle feeling of the song. Basically, the vocals would just need a more intense compressor treatment, but then when it's played loudly, it usually ends up in feeling like the vocals are all I can hear. But without the compressor, when played softly, the vocals tend to be too subtle as you have noted.
If the words do have a meaning, it could help to display them (Even more important in Christian worship, of course)
