A track from my album, Into Embers, that I want to share with hitRECord for whatever purpose that transpires. It's because of you all and this place that I could write an album like I did. I owe it all to everyone here. Thank you :)
I found this sign in Ikea about a year ago, before I started using hitRECord as a medium for creation and collaboration. Retrospectively, I think I saw some depth in this Ikea sign. It's not everyday that something like this prompts you to make a decision that would change your life.
You're all wonderful and I'm glad to have found you.
MERRY CHRISTMAS MJ! (Yes I'm your secret Santa)
I have to tell you that what you do with post-it notes is amazing. I just made this up as I went along and it took me all day. I know it pales in comparison to your mighty works, but it was a modest homage!
I wanted to answer your popularly answered question "What do you want?" and I think Christmas is a good time to answer that question!
I hope you enjoy this minute of tomfoolery. And I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a fantastic New Year!
A song story with words from my good friend InkedCanvas
Music inspired by that of JohnnyClyde and wirrow (and it seems some Sigur Ros slipped in as well)
(the other version that I just hid was a clip of it oops)
i still think about you
It appears to me that I have reached my third year on hitRECord.
Prepare for words to be said...
Three years. I don't see it that way. I see my time beginning truly at th...
So a little under a year ago, MadisenMusic wrote this great song that I rapidly added an acoustic guitar track to. I got a prompt from JerzyJung to update my remix and I thought I'd make some more additions as well (some perc.) because it's a great track and I think it should reemerge. What say you all!?
So like JerzyJung, I encourage some FUN (not serious) musicians and vocalists to add all sorts to the track. Perculiar instruments. (Anybody got a Kazoo to sing along with the melody in the chorus?!!)
Ahh, it's so refreshing to upload something non-TV-show-ish. I highly recommend it.
Fire at the elbows.
Saw this street performer in Bristol when walking around with Pamagotchi this weekend. She was focused (even in the errors), and she may come in handy.
In hindsight, I really wish I asked her name (and told her about hitRECord), so she could be properly credited. Come to think of it, I'm feeling rather bad that I didn't ask her name.
Well she exists, and in Bristol apparently, so remember her!
I chose a piece by ola_szmidt that she and her friends improvised for the Stars Were Stolen music. I've loved this piece since the first second I heard it. And I thought it felt interestingly correct here.
Score from the RECord directed by Pamagotchi. Thought I'd put it out there in case it wants to be used for something else/remixing.
CaptClare suggested I have a listen to Evangeline54's track "Lady Luck", which is the coolest. So I had a crack at covering it. Hopefully it's got the same kind of sly coolness. I've left it pretty bare for some other instrumentation, wadayathink?!
E minor - 4/4 - 115bpm
Thought I'd add slow-ambiguous lyrics to this wondrosity by wirrow and Johnnyclyde. I went for the childhood route, thanks to Johnny's suggestion.
You young one,
A stone's throw ago, ago, ago
No man's gun, keeping all away from home, you know.
You're sweet smart, you smile,
And every maze is welcomed in, within,
You spy some art, you...know a soldier made of tin,
My lights are on,
Inside it's warm with lots to show,
Shapes along, walls are wide, horizon's known.
My lights are on, young one.
