Today I had the idea to a new song for a new Faber album
It is a choir song called "Vocalise".
Your feedback is welcome. :-)

I also added a drum. Your feedback is welcome! :-)

Wow, does that need some serious EQ on some of those high notes. You might want to stick SPAN on it to see just how bad it is. Otherwise, musically very nice. But the vocal mix needs a bit of love on the upper mids.

Hi wagtunes,
thanks for your feedback. You are right. There are some bad frequencies.
I hope that in my new version some of that bad frequencies are gone.

Pretty good. I was wondering if you were going to bring some orchestral instruments in, but it was kick and snare. Interesting.

I commented on this track in the "Lost My Soul" thread.

Vocalise was really really beautiful. Have you heard "Cathedral Oceans" by John Foxx? I'm a big fan of those monastic chants such as Gregorian chants. Did you use samples or was it fully synthesized?

Hi Bansaw,
thanks for your feedback.
I purposely used drums to contrast the classic voices. So it is a modern track and not only a classical track.
I think that the contrast makes a special mood: Old times and new times together. :-)

Hi Erisian,
thanks for your feedback. I used a sample library called Clara voice and the choir from Kontakt.
"Cathedral oceans" is beautiful.
