Because of a very strange bug the songs name somehow dissapeared. I hope i will be able to fix it. The title is

"Cafe de Paris"

Hey there,

some days ago i wanted to created some kind of homage for oscar peterson. After having finished the track my system crashed and almost the whole track has been destroyed. After that i had the idea to bring in some argentinean piazolla-style-accordion to create a french feeling. I have been inspired by woody allens movie "Midnight in Paris". Hope you guys enjoy it - even it is short :D

I have used Logic Studio Pro to create the track.

Instruments:
Steinway Piano, Argentinean Accordion, Drumset, Percussions, Vibraphone

Hey man, this was beautiful, fantastic, awesome... well done. My kind of music, I loved it. French and Jazz, two greatest things out there.


SoundChris responds:

Thanks NHPhillips! I am also a big fan of french inspired jazz and i think i will do some more pieces of that kind - meanwhile i have got better instruments for that kind of music :D

All the best!

Beautiful work! I adore your lush harmonies and colorful piano runs. The whole atmosphere of this piece is wonderfully relaxed. It put a smile on my face. :)

A couple of things:

-The piano, while really intricate, sounds too "square" at many points. I think the mood of the piece would be enhanced if the piano hung a little more out of time. For example, there is the ending run at 1:31. I really wish it would have a bit of a ritard and hold out for a couple of seconds.
-The cymbal roll(?) at :27 just isn't working for me. Maybe making a decrescendo by playing with velocities would make it sound more natural.
-Maybe a tiny more reverb on the accordion would sound nice, and again, a less quantized feel.

I really love your progressions, especially the one that goes in a couple of fifths around 1:19. This piece is really gorgeous, but it just feels too rigid much of the time for me. I look forward to hearing more from you!

Voted 5/5 :)

Hey there BlazingDragon,

thanks a lot for leaving your thoughts here! First you are absolutely right if you call the piano a little bit "square". When i created the track i just had the basic logic pro piano samples and didnt add some reverb ore something. In the meantime i have purchased lots of sample libraries, new hardware and improved my skills - i have also discovered that you can manipulate the timecurves and the velocities within logic by the track automation system etc. I am still some kind of sound editing noob, but i hope to become gradually better :)

I will keep your constructive critiques in mynd and try to take them to heart!

All the Best,

Chris

I really enjoy your jazz piano works, particularly the live feel you bring to your tracks

SkyeWintrest has touched on a lot of relevant things that I agree with, if being a little bit picky

I did not think any of the sounds were jarring at all (besides maybe, the gong, a little, but honestly, if SkyeWintrest hadn't zeroed in on that, I probably wouldn't have payed much attention to it), and I just love jazz, conceptually, plus not all jazz is this smooth. it can be kind of terrible and boring in general, and this is definitely not terrible and boring

As you may know, I do a lot of purely electronic music, so this kind of thing really tickles my fancy, as it is quite outside of that realm, and certainly worth much recognition

Hey there! Thanks a lot for leaving your thoughts here - glad you liked the piece. I have been inactive for a quite long time and i hope to get more time for musics and NG in the near future again. I have bought lots of plugins etc. but did not even have the time to test them :/

I really like your electro songs - especially submerged lights. I wish i would understand just a little bit of creating this kind of music. My knowledge of synths etc is still very low --> what the heck is an oscillator? :D Someday i want to change this and hope to become acquainted with it.

Thanks a lot for your review - i will review one of your works soon!
Best wishes,
Chris
