Beautiful. Both the arrangement and the voice.

I don’t care whether you like the fact I like it or not either. (we’re such rebels) : )

exzellent - you created a masterpiece ! I like the harp & perc on this one.
permalink   oldDog Mon, May 7, 2007 @ 6:17 AM
thanks! - I don’t know about masterpiece, but I’m going to be very un-British and say that I really like this one myself!

..and is really good. The complementary rhythm between the harp and the percu is a rich idea..Impressive..!

The cross-rhythms are supposed to give the feeling of drifting clouds - which is about all I understand of the words.
I’m not sure I always got the rhythm of the pella matched up right, but maybe it kind of works anyway!

Wow … just wow.
That little turn around on the bongos really really sells it for me.

a great one!

You’ve got me there! I could say it was in the spirit of sharing… but the truth is I’d had too much to drink when I wrote that!

I was blown away by the editorial pick, thanks Victor

I particularly like the melody to this remix, with its subtle keyboard theme. Here your vocals and instrumentation blend together more effectively than the prior things I’ve heard you post on this site.
I am glad Victor selected this one for an editor’s pick, because it deserves it. I like that you create mixes with a kind of subtlety to them that sounds sophisticated to me.

Thanks Gurdonark - and also to BOCrew, IceSun, cdk, J.Lang - all great mixers, so it means a lot.

Lovely chill atmosphere! Really liked it.

I will only point out (as native Spanish speaker I am) that the vocals are a little out of sync, especially at 1:20 to 1:30.
permalink   oldDog Mon, May 14, 2007 @ 3:59 AM
Thanks, I’m not a Spanish speaker, so I was worried about that.
I can hear what you mean at 1:20 to 1:30 - I’ll try to fix it. If there are any other bits that sound wrong to you, I’d be very grateful if you could let me know!

new version up - any better? (worse??)

appreciate your help
permalink   s.c.mixer Mon, May 14, 2007 @ 9:49 PM
you should bring the vocals a little earlier, especially the first part and the bridge (the rest is pretty good). I worked this out for you as a tip:
0:10.8 -> 0:10.7
0:22.0 -> 0:21.9
1:15.6 -> 1:15.1
1:26.5 -> 1:25.7
Hope this helps.
permalink   oldDog Tue, May 15, 2007 @ 6:05 AM
thanks so much for your help!!

I’ve uploaded another version, hope it’s an improvement!
permalink   s.c.mixer Tue, May 15, 2007 @ 7:17 PM
Yeap that was an improvement; the first part of the bridge is OK now but you are still missing the second part: vocals at 1:26.5 should start at 1:25.7
permalink   oldDog Wed, May 16, 2007 @ 6:49 AM
This might finally be it????
permalink   s.c.mixer Wed, May 16, 2007 @ 5:24 PM
ups! too much earlier… now it’s starting at 1:25.3; it should start at 1:25.7. In other words, the vocals at this point should start aprox. 0.35 secs. after the beat.
permalink   oldDog Thu, May 17, 2007 @ 4:27 AM
like this??
I can’t ‘hear’ this one, so your help is really valuable.

Let me know if there’s ever anything I can do in exchange!
permalink   s.c.mixer Thu, May 17, 2007 @ 4:58 PM
Yesss you did it, congratulations!! :)

This song really deserved a well sync’ed vocals, that’s why I wanted to help you. ;)

As a tip, when you work with foreign language vocals I suppose that you should find the most stressed or emphasized points and align them with the beat.

Aside, it’s a pity that the vocals have some background noise that is really difficult to remove.
permalink   oldDog Fri, May 18, 2007 @ 2:27 AM
Many, many thanks!

I think what made this one even harder was that SilviaO has a lovely and subtle syncopated feel to her performance, so it’s difficult to know where the downbeat should be (that’s my excuse!)
permalink   s.c.mixer Fri, May 18, 2007 @ 5:44 PM
You may be right indeed, good excuse! ;)
permalink   SilviaO Sun, May 20, 2007 @ 8:11 PM
Guys. I’m amazed with the huge collaboration work you did on this track. It’s a pleasure to receive this kind of special treatment. Sorry for the background noise… really that bad?
permalink   s.c.mixer Mon, May 21, 2007 @ 4:46 PM
Not *that* bad but pretty noticeable, at least with headphones.
permalink   Sun, May 20, 2007 @ 8:00 PM
Sorry for my late comment. It’s been very busy… but your creation is beatiful! You captured perfectly the mood… it’s dreamy and lovely…
permalink   oldDog Mon, May 21, 2007 @ 2:59 AM
I’m really glad you like it.

You have a beautiful, beautiful voice, I hope you give us many more vocals to set here.

(it may be my cheap speakers, but I hadn’t even noticed the background noise!)
permalink   SilviaO Mon, May 21, 2007 @ 11:56 PM
Thanks! I really hope to do so. Your work inpire me to keep on doing my stuff…
permalink   Thu, May 10, 2007 @ 3:26 PM
