So I had this idea for combining "turn over the leaves 2" by Kimshuttle & "Skip and the turtle" by MadisenMusic. I loved the thought of the man reading a children's story. It could be his own child's story, or perhaps he just needed the kind of cheering up that only kid's books can do. Anyway, I'm not the best illustrator in the world, so I doodled some stick figures instead, as I wanted to put this together with a few images to show what it might look like & I thought I'd upload it to the site in case anyone would like to take the idea further.
Anyway, I'm not in a position to spend much time making this right now, but I'm really keen to see it in a finished state & I thought someone here might like the idea & might play around with the two RECords together.
As soon as I heard AM Ferraro's beautiful piece of music I knew I had to do something with it.
Also, 300th record whoop whoop whoa!
You tell your son that he can fly.
Fasten on his bright red cape
and tell him he can defy
tell him that he is above
all the r...

When I first heard this instrumental by tooantuh, this weird little tune (accompanied by these weird little lyrics) popped into my head. I didn't plan to record it at first, but the thing got stuck in my head for 2 months. So I eventually gave up and recorded it. And then I didn't plan to share it. But now it seems that I am. So... yeah.
[*Listen with headphones, if possible*]
Her mother called her Ted
After the milkman
(It was her fault he's dead)
And she was never understood
Never in the mood
Never had the money
For a private jet
(or drinks, or food)
As a father of a son and 3 daughters I have discovered:
Girls are smarter
Girls are stronger
Girls' lives are tougher
Yet they live longer
I love this poem by wirrow (and I'm so happy he did his own voice over for it:) I had to put some music with it and this piece by megancarnes fit perfectly.
I'm going to work on a video for this, but I hope other people do as well. It lends itself PERFECTLY to visuals and I'm sure we have the REsources:)
Gaby challenged me to record a song for the shadow caste collab, and more precisely about the Tenebrae...
Now, I know that the Tenebrae is obviously "the bad guy" in this collab, but it couldn't help feeling sorry for him... I mean, He was in Umbra first, with others of his kind, for ages, maybe for thousands of years. Then (maybe when the sun came along) all the other shadow castes appeared and started claiming rights for themselves. As time went by almost the whole race of Tenebraes had extinct (again perhaps 'cause of the sun), but this one Tenebrae still stayed around, hiding in the land that once was His, filled with anger, pain and bitterness. No wonder all this drove him mad. (just an idea I had :P)
So I wrote this quite sad song about him... I think it might work better as an instrumental theme than a song, but I don't know, I wanted to give it a try :D it was really hard to sing though! I would've wanted to tell the whole sad story of the Tenebrae in this song, but I didn't get the inspiration for the lyrics... (maybe someone would like to give it a try? ;))
This must be one of the longest descriptions for a audio record, but I felt like I had to explain to Gaby why I made something like this, I'm guessing this wasn't quite what she had in mind...! okkk I'll stop writing now! :D
Vocal RECordings by Metaphorest & The Morning Hollows (RECorded 4/2011)
Bass Gtr & Drum RECording by Albert (RECorded 2/2011)
Drum Kit sample & Keyboard RECording by GwenInterrupted (RECorded 5/2011)
Cymbal crash RECording by thisishowiroll (RECorded 10/2011)
EBow gtr solo by me (RECorded 2010)
2012 REmix arrangement & production by meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
This REmix contains only samples from the RECords resourced. No outside/extra RECordings were used.
this took nearly a full year after the original bass line & 'Ravens' RECords were released for me to 'crack' the idea for an arrangement that worked.
back in April 2011, i downloaded the audio stems that Albert, Sarah, and Matt uploaded to the site, and after trying some ideas that ended up not going aywhere, decided to put this REmix on hold until I could think of something suitable. Sometimes the best ideas come much later. Sometimes, it's better to put your impulses aside and allow time to pass...
in January 2012, I came up with the idea of looping Matt & Sarah's ending vocal lines which created the proper foundation, along with Albert's bass, for the song to move in a cohesive, structured direction. Everything else, the drums, guitar solo, format, followed suit.
And there you have it.
many thanks to Albert, Matt & Sarah <3
I've been planning on re-recording this and making it better for a while now. Glad I finally did it. Hope you guys like this version :)
Gaby's challenge," take your favorite shadow character, or your favorite shadow remix and turn it into a glass paint "
I chose a part of azur_du_ciel's "if the noon shadow has wanted to see a dawn.."
I am working in some possible intros for some of the videos for my shadows project, this is just a version, but I am making another animation right now, I have to say thanks to karengayle for this fantastic animation of my HR shadows logo! :)
i was challenged on HitRECord Challenge Collab to finish the song "So I'm Told" originally written and performed by Babbish. I was to use to instrumental recorded by Lyrictician and add vocals to complete the song. This is what i have done. I hope everyone enjoys it.
I don't really consider myself much of a drawer, but I drew this with my finger on my iPad as an example for my daughter's sweet tiny story. And after I was about 90% finished with the drawing, I remembered that there is a zoom function that would have made little details a WHOLE lot easier and better than trying to draw tiny dashes with my giant fingertip. Anyway, I would much rather see an illustration from someone that actually draws on a regular basis, but I thought I'd upload this anyway and BEG someone to draw something for her sweet tiny story. Preferably something that could also be animated in the future with her sweet voiceover that we recorded yesterday :)

Also,, my handwriting is terrible, and my handwriting on an iPad is even worse.
This was inspired by halfreal's story 'Centered' and her challenge. This popped into my head the first time I read it and I ran with it. :)
PS Hello, halfreal! This is still for you! The little girl in the drawing is based on the girl in your profile picture. Thanks for the challenge. :D
Again in .PNG format to facilitate possible remixing. :D
I haven't had much time to work on this so there hasn't been many changes. Nothing more than eq tweaking. I got rid of the glitch effect on the drums towards the end that pamagotchi rightly disapproved of. I would like to request of pamagotchi perhaps to rerecord the vocals. Maybe two new versions. Not necesarly completely different versions. I would just like to hear the different inflections that are inherent when working on something and then returning to it later on. If you could do one one day and another someother day. I will upload an instrumental track as well.
I couldn’t help myself. I started with dessert! Here is a recipe for Louve’s RECipe Collab and GabyVaughan’s Challenge Collab. Enjoy!

I've been wanting to cover a song for The Morning Hollows' HitRECord Covers Collab forever since I mostly record song covers on my tumblr and that's what got me into recording music in the first place. I never could decide on a song to cover, but I finally listened to tonguecutsparrow's song yesterday and decided to try it. Since his song is already awesome, I just did this one quickly and had some fun with a few garageband effects, so don't take it too seriously :)
***UPDATE*** Check out version 2 -> http://hitrecord.org/records/698572
Inspired by ppeppina's beautiful song "Hetki". As soon as I heard this song, I just had to make an animation for it.
Here are ppeppina's lyrics - in Finnish and in English
On elämä kummallista tosiaan - Life is very strange indeed
Täällä yksi yössä laulaa vaan - Here this one is just singing
Vaikka pitäis mennä nukkumaan - Even though it's time to sleep
Mut aika on huijari, pelkkä haamu - But time is a cheater, only a ghost
Tääl voi olla yö, mut tuol jossain on aamu - It might be a night here, but somewhere it's morning
Siellä heräilen parhaillaan - I'm just about to wake up there
Nää sävelet ilmassa soi yksinään - these melodies fly alone in the air
Ei niistä kiinnostu yksikään - and absolutely no one cares
Kuluvat sekunnit mua säestää - the passing seconds are accompaning me
Tää hetki on mun, jo nukkuvat muut - This moment is mine, others already sleep
Talo ja taivas ja piha ja puut - The house and the sky and the yard and the trees
En vois pyytää enempää - I couldn't ask for more
Mut hetken kestää hetki vaan - But a moment lasts only for a moment
Se on ohi ennen kuin huomaatkaan - It's gone before you know it
