Miss Von Trapp
[Mood |satisfiedsatisfied]
[Music |Blessed silence now winamp has stopped hehe...]

I've been up half the night and I got bored again...so I recorded a couple more 'things':

'In Heaven'
(the Lady in the Radiator song from David Lynch's 'Eraserhead' - I tried to make myself sound like I was singing from inside a radiator hehe...)



(I wrote this poem back in November last year, and the tune popped into my head a while back whilst walking home from work...tis a bit of an echoey-overlaid mess but was fun to do)



Ok, I won't torture you with any more lol!!

Thankyou:) I thought it was a bit dire actually - lost it on the rhythm a little..

New Moon...? I'll have a think about it;)

God, that was really strange. Not your voice, or the songs, both're great btw (though I'm sure you're aware of that!) but because I haven't met you or even spoken to you in person, I had no idea of what you'd sound like. I suppose I probably had some preconceived idea, but I couldn't actually say quite how I expected you to sound. Is the spoken part at the end of Choices representative of how you speak?

Well, it is me speaking lol, but it's a bit monotone... I wasn't putting on an accent though. Thankfully I've been brought up avoiding sounding janner;)

Just so you know, I downloaded all of those because they're dead fabulous! I'll certainly be using your version of "In Heaven" on a few mix compilations to come...

...any chance I can talk you into doing "Love's Secret Domain" by Coil? Hehe.

Sounds like you have too much distortion on the last one. Damn after spending 18 months living with a musician I wish I could express the term I am looking for.
Also the narrative at the end seems out of tempo with the rest of the piece.
*Looks forwards to hearing another edit*

I did mess up the last one rather, I know what you are driving at - the balance is all wrong.

It's because I'm using a desktop mic to record each layer, but the speakers are playing back the previous edits at the same time as I have no headphones... Also I messed up the delay on one of the layers...

I can't re-edit it - I deleted all the wavs on the desktop and then realised I needed them lol!!


Never mind.

Ho hum. I've only been playing with this prog for the last two days - I'm still on a very very basic level with it lol!

Still, the more I mess about with it...

(and don't worry, I won't subject you all to EVERYTHING hehe)

My favourite out of all of these is 'In Heaven' anyway:)
