Scaring myself with the sound of my voice... [Aug. 13th, 2004|06:34 am]

[Mood |creativecreative]

Rang in sick, will go to the doctors and get a sicknote so I can go back on Monday. Done lots more packing then played about with the microphone...

Woozily drunk sounding creepy odd stuff:

Nature Boy
Just me singing on my own - and also doing the weird vocal backing (mixed by flatmate)...
SCARY!!!!!!!!!:

And...EQUALLY AS SCARY (but a bit cuter)...

You Are My Sunshine
Flatmate on backing, me (with a cold) on vocals...

.... and you sing that well when you're ill?

jeebus why the hell are you not doing this for a living?
:)

both very odd. both very, as you put it, drunk sounding. dont know what your friend did in the mixing but it kinda sounds like you're underwater or something?

anyway.. look forward to hearing some more....

Re: *blinkblink*

I've always been able to sing through colds lol - a discipline learnt in the 'Girls Brigade Choir' when suffering flu but still doing concerts for many years lol!!

(hides at admission of GB Choir)

I'd do musical theatre for a living if I knew how to break into it...have always ended up singing in theatre performances anyway. Would love to do Rocky Horror for starters...

The mixing is using lots of odd reverb such as 'train station' and such...with weird delays and things too...

Might do more if the mood strikes;)

Woke up this morning to find a text uring me to check your LJ... that got my suspicions up ... I have to say I rather like your voice, especially with a bit of reverb on it, so this was a pleasant suprise. I'm not sure what inspired you to do this, but cheers anyway. A few more sachets of Lemsip Max Strength and you'll maybe get somewhere ;).

Not entirely sure what inspired me to do this either - flatmate was messing about with different silly voices doing 'You Are My Sunshine' and I suddenly wanted to add the vocals... Then it was suggested that I add more - so I did 'Nature Boy' instead...

Ok ok it was about 5am this morning...I'd been packing boxes all nite and perhaps had gone a bit spare? So much so that I couldn't resist txting my friends to torture them with it lolol!!!

Glad you liked, certainly gave me a giggle...

beyootifull!

Oooh I like! Especially Nature Boy. It sounds like something to a soundtrack of a creepy indie flick. Awesome.

My request: You should record some Duran Duran and post it.

Re: beyootifull!

One of these days I'll make these the soundtracks to a creepy indie flick I'll make!!

That's a HUGE compliment - thankyou so much!:))

Duran Duran, hmmm...any particular track? The potential is terrifying...

(Perhaps I should get my sister and I to re-record the gloppy-underwater harmonies of the 'Frog Chorus' which we used to do with our faces submerged in bowls of water lol!)

Ouch! Hey, I did these on a ridiculous whimsy this morning...

Don't worry, I have your song saved on this comp, and want to do something proper with it, using my 'cello! As I am in the middle of moving back to my parents I'm kinda stuck for proper time to spend on things:))

*grin* upon reading your text, I actually got out of bed to listen to those! Unfortunatly I can't report any strange dreams upon my return, but I enjoyed them all the same.

It was nice to hear your singing voice too :)

Hey:)

Thanks for that...might get round to it at some point. I have folders full of old stuff I've written and not put down ever... When I'm more settled after my move I might do some more with instruments and things:)

Fantastic!
I especially love "Nature Boy".
You are a very talented lady.
Can you teach me to do cool stuff like that? (I can't sing at all!)
