Description : A song I wrote over a guitar track that I found on YouTube. Link to the original track can be found below.

Have been attempting to write 2-3 songs over the past couple of months with little success, when this one just appeared out of nowhere.

It's a bit odd I guess (which is why I tagged it as weird) but I enjoyed creating and listening back to it, so here it is.

Thank you!

Music: In Albany New York - The 126ers

Everything in this song just simply works together. Nothing clashes and the vocals are amazing. It's a bit tough to make out the lyrics so maybe that could be a small complaint, but that's pretty much it. Awesome song

Thank you very much.

And you're not the only one to mention the clarity of the lyrics, but I'm working on it!

Appreciate you stopping by and taking the time out to comment :]

Wow, really nice song and great vocals too.
mildperil replied 28th Jan 2018 - 6 years ago
Thank you very much. It helps that there are such good instrumentals out there for me to play with, otherwise I'd still be singing Christmas carols to myself :)

You see
mildperil replied 28th Jan 2018 - 6 years ago
Thank you.

The link to the original can be found in the description, but I enjoyed the video nonetheless :)

Always appreciated :)

You did a really good job with this song. It sounded a lot like something that Pink Floyd would put out. The overall overtone of this song as really dark, which I really like. I look forward to hearing more stuff like this from you.
mildperil replied 21st Jan 2018 - 6 years ago
Thank you.

I would love to make a song that is at once dark and beautiful/ethereal, so I guess I'm halfway there :)

Thanks for stopping by and commenting, means a lot.

Hai there,

Wow, omg, damn. You have an amazing voice! WHY HAVEN'T I HEARD FROM YOU BEFORE. This is such a beautiful snippet I don't want to call it a "song", but something like a trip, a feeling, a breeze. Idk I'm getting weird.

Try to work on sounds like this dude, they are so unique yet easy on the ears. Add some drums, build a full song, add a wonderful message. THE POTENTIAL IS DRIPPING FROM MY SPEAKERS. I don't know if that's normal but DO SOMETHING WITH IT.

Great sound, amazing voice, good stuff. Keep it up :)

Mr. Spook'd

Hi there, thank you for such glowing feedback!

I'd have to agree that it's not really a song as such, and that's kind of what I was aiming for, as I'm a big fan of film music and was going for something along those lines.

I hope to make more traditional songs in the future, so I'll be following your advice.

Thanks for stopping by and listening, much appreciated.
TomTomBoom 14th Jan 2018 23:53 -  6 years ago
Love the track, I'm currently studying film in college and think this song has a place in it. Whether or not your track is used I still really like it.
mildperil replied 18th Jan 2018 - 6 years ago
It would be really cool to hear my music in something along those lines, but it's not quite at that standard yet.

Thanks for stopping by and listening, always appreciated.

I think this is my favorite track of yours. The mood of the instrumental really suits your voice. Sounds kind of like a chilled out Ozzy.
mildperil replied 31st Dec 2017 - 6 years ago
Thank you very much.

And it's nice to see a familiar face popping up in the comments, it means a lot.

Happy new year!
Nodog 30th Dec 2017 07:10 -  6 years ago
Reminds me of a David Gilmour pink Floyd number I really like your vocals. I am learning the process of dealing with vocals in my daw and would be very interested to learn from you on how you process that. Fantastic work you have done here best regards Robbie.
mildperil replied 30th Dec 2017 - 6 years ago
Hi praise indeed, thank you!

My set-up consists of a Rode nt1-a mic > DBX 286s vocal processor > Focusrite solo > Ableton. And the main softwares I tend to use for vocals are Izotope Nectar and Waves sonic enhancer, along with some extra compression and transient shaping.

After that, it's just a case of experimenting I guess.

Hope that helps, and thanks for listening :)
mojovid 30th Dec 2017 05:42 -  6 years ago
Great song! Your vocal has gravitas, which I think is Latin for balls. Congratz!!!
mildperil replied 30th Dec 2017 - 6 years ago
I'll pretty much take any compliment that comes my way haha.

Thanks for stopping by an listening, much appreciated :)
Ludwigbroo 29th Dec 2017 16:57 -  6 years ago
damn! Are you the one singing?
mildperil replied 29th Dec 2017 - 6 years ago
Yeah that's me, through about 10 different audio processes :)
Timmons2 29th Dec 2017 16:09 -  6 years ago
Hey, I think you did a good job with this. Like the effect you put on your vocals. It brings it back to the singer songwriter days when music took you on a journey. It has that Peter Gabriel vibe. Nice work.
mildperil replied 29th Dec 2017 - 6 years ago
Thank you. More than one person has mentioned Peter Gabriel in passing now, so that's a genuine compliment, although I must rely heavily on effects to get anything sounding close.

Thanks for the comments :)

Description : Many of strangeness here ....
A link between two musical worlds quite different but united in this message of harmony.
"Silverpaw" (former Looperman) had in the depths of one of its hard drives, this arrangement that I made the past year:
He decided to bring this theme, with a text and this voice ....
Very surreal but I really enjoyed ....

I hope it will be the same for you.

Thank you for listening.

Description : I started out making this track a Vocal track, then it turned into a Chillout track but, now I'd say DubJazz, PsychoFunk or Weird. You be the Judge.

Description : Hey guys! Well, this is the first time I upload a song with my voice. I have to confess that this is not a style I usually sing. And, as an extra point, this is my first song in english. My native language is spanish, my english is not perfect, so sorry for mistakes (grammar, pronunciation, etc). Well, about lyrics, I explain the story on description of the instrumental version. If you want to read the story or hear the instrumental track, go here [ ]. This song was made on Magix Music Maker 2013 Premium and Adobe Audition 3.0. I hope you like it. Thanks! SUN & MOON... FIRE & ICE HEART... LIGHT & DARK FUSION...

Description : I haven't done anything in awhile. I got tired of screwing with this so just did some gain staging & panning & slapped it on here. It definitely sounds like something I would do.

Description : Again not sure of genre but it is kinda weird. Very much an experiment and Im not sure if it works but someone will let me know no doubt. If you can cope at all probably better with headphones. Pad sound is guitar treated with reverbs, crazy drums constructed from Akai kits and free jazz SFZ kit, sax samples and minimal synth line from arturia minifreak

Description : I found an old recording of me playing guitar on 8-track and decided to use it in a new track. All parts have been recorded using analogue equipment. I've then slowed down, sped up or reversed as I recorded them digitally. Then came the difficult part, attempting to piece it all together in ableton without everything being too out of time (there's no way to make it perfect).
Once I'd EQ'd out some of the loudest hiss, I started applying effects and eventually mastering it all.
What you get as a final product is a simple song executed in a very weird way. I'm quite happy with the disorienting effect. I hope you like it too :)

Description : This is is just a weird little acapella piece I was never able to find the chords to. Wrote it ages ago. I put it into a bad sounding round because I'm bored tonight.

Apparently I can ask for a collab. Gorsh. I doubt it's good enough to do anything with, but I'd be curious.
