i hear this. This is a thought on my mind a lot... i like the different expectations people have about dying that you mentioned in your vocals. i used to tell people that they were obsessed with the point where their lives would really begin (young people when i was young), instead of actually paying attention to the fact that they were already living their lives. Now... i'm one of those people waiting for life to get back to some state of familiar normality that got lost... oh... ELEVEN years ago now.

I'm glad that someone was actually paying attention and that I provoked some thought.

Love this track.

Really nice simple production. Good hip-hop vibe. Not being too try-hard, just got that groove. Really like the sax sample motif you put over it. Is that yours? Sampled?

Walking through the valley of the shadow of death myself.

Been listening to Warren Zevon most the day.

"Enjoy every sandwich".


And don't worry about the cold fishes here at KVR - they are listening - but they don't see this as the wonderful social media platform it is - just a place to bitch about developers that don't implement their particular version of a plugin...

They're just a bunch of GUI Whores!

:-)

Nice music.

If you can, read out loud the Four Quartets by T.S. Elliot:

http://www.davidgorman.com/4Quartets/2-coker.htm

It's long.

East Coker is my favourite.


In my beginning is my end. In succession
Houses rise and fall, crumble, are extended,
Are removed, destroyed, restored, or in their place
Is an open field, or a factory, or a by-pass.
Old stone to new building, old timber to new fires,
Old fires to ashes, and ashes to the earth
Which is already flesh, fur and faeces,
Bone of man and beast, cornstalk and leaf.
Houses live and die: there is a time for building
And a time for living and for generation
And a time for the wind to break the loosened pane
And to shake the wainscot where the field-mouse trots
And to shake the tattered arras woven with a silent motto.



It's almost like a Buddhist scripture.

There are some very long Sutras that take days to recite in the Buddhist canon.

The Heart Sutra is the shortest one and the most well known.

https://www.buddhanet.net/e-learning/heartstr.htm

Form is emptiness and emptiness is form.



If you can, read the Four Quartets. I think you will find something in there.

Cool bud, maybe try to add a bit of grit or depth to your voice with something, like were you are coming from. Keep at it bud. Also like your Pamela tune.

I agree. It's a shame in many ways that Karma_tba didn't get throat cancer instead of his bum deal of brain cancer. But there is still time! Perhaps he can get both. His vocals can only improve!

Actually, I'm just being an obnoxious c**t.

I know what you mean about the grit in the vocals, but he is not Chris Rea or Rod f**king Stewart, is he? He's not the lead singer for the Revolting Cocks.

I like his voice just fine.

So he's not totally gung ho, f**k you bubba, in his attitude. There is a little vulnerability in there. Funny that. Singing a song about dying. Who'd a thunk it?

What next?

Perhaps Monsieur could utilise a little more of a French accent, as that would signal more intellectualism.

Yeah, the vocal could do with a little 'thickening' if you were doing it in a professional context. But I like the straight-ahead sound of it all.

Did you listen to it 10 times in a row?

Works for me.
