Ah, I see. Yes, that was achieved. It's a very strange sounding version. But it has to be, when it reminds me of Lynch...
You know, I just realised (and this is also in my notes about this song (are they up yet?)): Mr. X had the original idea for the instrumentation, and he's a Lynch fan. Coincidence? I'll have to ask him.
I'm no great fan of normal à capella, but when it comes to experiment with the voice then it can be great. At last Jarre's Zoolook is some kind of à capella, too, isn't it?
I'm not that familiar with Jean-Michel Jarre's work, sorry.
À capella can sound really cool, I think, if you use great effects for the vocals, and maybe some other effects to go along with it as well. "Just For A Moment" might have worked out wonderfully like that, but I do
like how it turned out with what instrumentation there is in there!
The drums in "Lament" are great, I just thought that this one sound (I don't know the word) is a bit too loud. You know, this "electronic open hi-hat". But how can I be a critic in case of drums? The drumtrack is always the one I have the largest problems with when I do a song.
Please keep us informed about Your further musical projects!
You might be talking about the splash cymbal. It was the closest thing I could find to use to simulate the sound I was trying to simulate (pardon the redundancies). I know what you mean about having problems with drum tracks. I was not looking forward to doing the drums to that song! I thought it was going to be a nightmare! But it worked out as well as it could, and I hope Warren will be forgiving.
Once Mr. X and I have completed some original work, I will pass them along! (Oooh, this gives me incentive to get working!) Maybe something might be eligible for the next "Best Original" competition! We shall see!
I have received your email, Nils, and responded to it! Thanks!
