  • Air You Breathe

    Sorry - haven't been around much.  I've been catching up on Walking Dead.  :manindifferent:

    I was going for a vibe/mood/atmosphere with this one...  

     

    Air to Breathe (latest version)

    Break down your walls for me

    I'll pay for the air you breathe

    Pardon me while I enjoy your atmosphere

    And now I'm blinded by the warmth of happy tears

    Break down your walls for me

    I'll pay for the air you breathe

    Love the Strawberry Fields flutes and mellotronish strings.....and all the other Beatleisms....

     

    I'm not sure the little bell tones work - maybe just fewer notes and brought forward they would work...as is they are kind of lost in the shoegaze haze....it's a fine line between sweet and too sweet - you'll have to make that call.  Feels close to that line at least to me with the little bells.  A chimey Rickenbacker electric picking a few high notes might be a good substitute for the bells.

     

    When I saw the title "Air You Breathe" my brain immediately brought up a link to the Bee Gees "all I need is the air that I breathe and to love you".  I would change the title just to avoid that little referential detour.  

     

    A high organ part, pipe-organish, might sound good floating way up there above the beautiful fog of dreamy sound...

     

    Very nice - I can listen to this kind of material all day.

      I have nothing to offer except to say I enjoyed the hell out of it.

    Thanks everyone. On my mobile, so I can't properly quote.

    Nat - I'm not done on this one yet, so replacing the bells is a possibility if I can find the right sound.

    Martin - those strings ARE mellotron. I wasn't overly satisfied with them either. I really wanted that Rain Song sound. Not real strings. I don't work with midi (too dense to figure out how to get it going). I'll see what other sounds I have available.

    Stick - yes, reverb... will give it a try.

      Martin. Sure thing! How do you want me to do it? A WAV of everything but drums? The midi file? You want everything? Let me know.

        Everything but drums, yeah. Just make sure the audio file starts on a measure and I know the tempo.

        Do you want me to execute your parts or do I have license? If the former, you can send me the MIDI sure

        Just use DB

          You have full license.  WAV file coming your way in 2 minutes.

        Yeah... Haha. It's misleading. Explained in the note.
