Once contemporary, always contemp...
If you are a female vocalist, singer or just vocal hobbyist, PM me or comment right here!

---

A farewell tale on the far northern side of Israel and Syria...

Vastness and sadness moods. Cold feeling. Yiddish and Arabic instruments (except legato string and piano).

Feature tar, goblet, bendir, riq, Yiddish fiddles, oud, doumbek, rebab, ney flute, simsimiyya and mihbaj.

======

I started out with very classical mood (I remember?) and finally it's another world contemporary...

I have chord 'fever' last night. I used some chords that I wasn't even familiar with. lol...

It's not finish... I need vocals!! I have a guy who are writing lyrics right now. I have plan B and that's my EWQL SC WordBuilder... but it's insane.

======

Almost everything from RA and SFXs I found online. Strings from LASS. Pianos from TruePiano.

Constructive criticism if you can. Or just a simple comment.

Hope you enjoy this little piece. and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Incredible sound

This really puts me in a new place, the percussion is wonderful, and the strings give a nice tone to everything. I might occasionally let another instrument take over for the giant melody the strings play in the back occasionally, but it all works either way.

For a WIP, it sounds like it's coming along beautifully. I agree with the one reviewer about the ending, to me it sounds a bit abrupt or odd, like it's missing closure. Still, a solid piece, and I can't wait to hear it done.

Like a dream

This puts me in the setting of a really peaceful dream. I can definitely feel what you were going for....a wide open space. An empty land perhaps, that goes on forever. It is very beautiful. :)

Sorry Jessi, the lyrics are done but I'm solving tuning problem. I'm trying to match them to the melody.

I'll spend this midnight to fix this. And by Tuesday (or tomorrow) I shall send it to you.

Again, I'm sorry for being late.

Nice work

I love the piece... it is nice and smooth. I could imagine, however, a nice drop off where all the instruments drop out and a chorus comes in and "oooos" the melody a bit. The ending seems a bit strange, perhaps you should have it so only the percussion cuts it off.

Another idea would be to have horns come in and take the melody for a bit with a nice legato.

Try some loud low whole notes on the piano... near the very edge of its range... if done correctly, it can lend a very vast sound. Also, a flute part at some point wouldn't hurt... it sounds like it almost needs some sort of woodwind instrument, be it flute, clarinet, or what else. If flute, high and ringing, if clarinet, low and moody with part of the chording perhaps.

Another good piece, keep it up.

For the ending, that's why I need vocals, simple choirs didn't work. Noted.

Horn? Damn I forgot that, again... a bit of french horn/bassoon would be nice. Noted!

My mastering skills are pretty shit. Volume balancing. Noted!

Add more woodwinds. Yay, noted.

thanks for the detailed constructive criticism a lot!

Great song

I don't think the wordbuilder is too realistic, not unless you want subtle choirs in the background pronouncing consonants. But getting a female vocalist to help you out shouldn't be too hard I imagine.

I enjoyed the music you've produced here, and I'm curious to hear what vocals sound like accompanied with the music. Please let me know if you make any progress with finding a vocalist. If you have trouble, I may be able to help you.

Thank you for the detailed comments.

I'm thinking about Hania or SolusLunes could be the best vocalists on NG. However I fear they may ask for licensing. I'll just go for either of them when I run out of option.

And honestly I have hard time with Symphonic Choir's wordbuilder. It may take me weeks to put together the lyrics, especially they have Yiddish/Arabic.

Thanks again Bosa.
