Absolutely delightful, quirky and irresistible. The b/t is fantastic, Jeris, and I am so happy you’ve mixed me. Thank you. xxxx

Thanks, I started a sort of Norah blues country waltz arrangement then tried a standards jazz thing, then ended up with this…it was quite a journey. I might still post another version…or two..lol.

(hip hop?) I like how you set up a mood before letting it loose. I’m noticing more waver in Ciggi’s voice than I heard in the original pella, also that shift in pitch during the longer held ‘made long ago’. Nice touches.

Hip hop?… Yeah I almost removed that tag, but I figured if I took the kick, clap, and barri I could build a hip hop track from that, but it’s so buried in brushes and instrumentation it’s barely there.

Damn you have good ears! Yeah I played around with the pitch drift and time stretch which changes the ‘wobble’ I took out a lot of it, but I hear a few spots here and there that I missed. Some of it I like, but I think some should be less…wobbly.
And yeah, you caught that sustained note that I split and repitched…again…remarkable ears man!

Quote: Jeris…Some of it I like, but I think some should be less…wobbly.Oh, I think you left in just the right amount. It sounds intentional.

I’ve been paying particular attention to time stretch and pitch shift lately because I like to do it but I’m not always happy with the results I get doing it in SoundForge. I did a little research and found that Zplane’s Elastique is highly regarded. I then looked to see how I could get it the cheapest and found that there’s a fully featured DAW called Reaper that uses it as their pitch shift plug-in and also uses the algorithm for their time shifting. And it’s only sixty dollars to license it if you want to keep it after the thirty day trial period (with all features open). I’m sure you already have a better one (I use AcidPro) but sixty dollars for a fully featured DAW, not bad. Worth it just for the Elastique.

I’ve become a real Reaper fanboy recently. It’s only $60 but it’s the real deal. Earlier this year I switched from Cakewalk Sonar to Reaper as my main DAW and I haven’t looked back.

The only thing some people might not like about Reaper is that it doesn’t come prepackaged with a ton of loops, samples, virtual instruments, etc. like other DAWs. But that also makes it lean and mean (the full installer package is about 5MB). It’s also ridiculously fast and stable compared to my experience with Sonar.

There’s lots of other good things I could say about it, but since they offer an absolutely free uncrippled demo, I’d say you should just try it yourself. :)

Cool thanks, yeah it’s amazing what you can get these days on the cheap or free. The freemium model has really exploded everyone givin stuff away just for a chance to open your wallet. And it works..they get us..lol

I thought it was your voice in the background before I read the conversation with Speck - just your timbre (I thought…). Very nice track indeed!

Lately, I’ve grown quite fond of the band Beirut… The instrumentation you used here makes me think of them. This is meant as a serious compliment… love it.

That is so awesome, I was trying to remember the name of that band a few weeks ago! I love that stuff!

Right on! We seem to have some serious musical overlaps… Are you still hooked on the wonderful Swedish musicians? Here’s someone I forgot to mention: Anna Ternheim

Indeed, I’ll check that one out too. Thanks!

That’s great stuff, I think my favorites so far are just her and the guitar.

Anna’s nice, we used to live in the same part of town until she became too fancy for Stockholm and moved to New York. Let me know if you want more difficult-to-pronounce names.

Very cool. I’ve often lusted over the Stockholm music scene. Figures you’d be there. :) Jeris and I were discussing First Aid Kit and Ane Brun a couple weeks ago. Do you know of them? Any other suggestions?

permalink   timberman Thu, Oct 20, 2011 @ 2:18 AM
Yepp but to be honest Ane Brun is Norwegian although she lives in Stockholm (in my area too)
Ebba Forsberg’s got a fantastic voice, then there’s Kristian Kjellvander, Lykke Li, Me & My Army and also The Deportees’ new album’s got fantastic reviews but I haven’t heard it yet and finally good old The Soundtrack OF Our Lives never do bad records although they’ve been around for ages. Stockholm’s got a vibrant music scene. You should move here, you could get married here yknow.

Apologies for my confusion.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I did a quick listen to all of the links- good, good music. I’ll be busy listening this weekend. I was familiar with Lykke Li- loved her first album, but not the second one not so much. Oh- Nina Kinert’s another lady for the list. You know, my partner and I have actually looked into moving to Sweden for those very reasons.

I’d never heard of Nina Kinert. She sounds great. Must check her out.
I’ll be there at the airport when you arrive holding a sign saying ’ hello, it’s me’

Interesting vocal warbling or wobbling, J. It works.

Its a nice delicate waltz mix. One of my favourite types of music, with the brushes, the accordion, and the bari sax setting a really romantic and vintage mood.

My personal preference, but Ciggi’s voice is so wonderfully wistful, I might have left off any pitch correction. But that’s just my tastes.
