- Adieu! (with edited lyrics + BVs)
This is an edited mix of 'Adieu!' with BVs by Pamagotchi, Marie Bee and ppeppina, and with pizzicato by Marie Bee and Harmonica by ppeppina. My main and BV vocals have been re-recorded to follow the nice, solid lyrics posted by Mamzelle B (with a few tiny changes). She compiled lyrics from marhea, Mademoiselle_B, Nizerno, MeTaL_PoU, Pamzette and Jarox. If anyone feels that the lyrics need more work, lassez-moi savoir!
I'll be putting up the stems for those who'd like to add/replace harmonies, as well as instrumentalists who'd like to create a bigger sound.
Lastly, while I'm here, I want to thank all those who went over the clumsy, childish lyrics of a non-native speaker-singer, providing alternative ideas to benefit the song. There's so much enthusiasm so quickly, and I know there are still tons of ideas.
Hello, all of you wonders of hitRECord.
I won't keep you. I just wanted to take a second to tell you frankly how gratefu...
It's just a quick song. And it's about people. Lots of people. And other things... maybe RE: The Road...
I left this intentionally bare because I wanted people to add as much as they could to it. So more vocals, more instruments, solo instrument section, anything! Stems up soon enough.
A major - 3/4 - 190bpm
People on form, people on time,
People magically on top of their shit,
People changing and I know for one I'll be a son of a gun if I don't change one bit to get where I end up,
People folding, people without an apetite,
People exiting things without saving them prior,
People know I'm not one for a show but I can't help but aim a bit higher,
I was told I should prepare for the best of days and best of days I'll get,
Can I be a fighter and a runner?
I'm not one of those gambling men, but I'm my safest bet, and I quite like roulette,
People don't show, people loco,
Why'd he run from the bun 'cause he's bored of the oven,
I can't stand people raising their hand as they tell me there's no such thing as lovin', they're just being stubborn,
I was told I shouldn't mind if they hammer at my head,
That's just the order we are placed in,
What else could I do but fight my own way through instead, to make some real good bread,
Hurry there's no time for wastin',
There are doctors, there are nurses,
There are killers and coppers and warriors even now,
You can think that you're fine then you blink and you're old and you've lost all your money,
And no one is talking and reading gets harder but you know the truth still,
People are people,
You know the truth still, people are people,
You know the truth still, weak and their feeble, people are people.
You know when you hear a song that kinda pisses you off because its so good.... this is one of those times. Killer song joerud! I think its damn near perfect as is. Maybe a very minimal upright bassline and and light string parts.
- Fair Trade Agreement (with joerud)
Love Sel's voice. Love Metaphorest's lyrics. Love alpal's music.
"i love the process of remixes this has gone through. this sounds sweet and lovely. i still think more could be added to it for some fullness.. i can sort of hear one other instrument in my head at least. maybe strings? not sure" - featured by wirrow, 8 April
- What I Saw (v2)
I wrote this around this time last year and I wanted to bring it back again with some better recording/mixing equipment.
I'm so exhausted.
- Collecting Stars (To Music)
Hello there! This rather short idea of music is inspired by JenniferChittenden's RECord "Collecting Stars", which is intensely beautiful. I really enjoyed playing musically with the art, and I love the concept she includes. The STEMS will be provided in the RESULTS section, if anyone wants to journey further with the idea. Then, if we get some animators to do their magic on the visual side, we can produce a wonderful new collaboration!
Okay enjoy now.
I love this little theme. It would be great as a score for a short film. Audio remixers - have at it! joe rud has uploaded the Audio Stems here: http://www.hitrecord.org/records/1077461
So let's refine the current production a bit and have other musicians play along to this with more instruments. Plus, this could probably use some vocal harmonies here 'n there too.
- Fox And Feather
In finding this specific musical riff, I envisiged what I believe foxes are up to when they're not scurrying away from supposedly hearty human beings.
Despite the wet darkness and the slightly unwelcome feeling of the gardens, the fox cub catches a glimpse of the feather, drifting steadily a mere few inches above his reach. But a healthy leap will be all that's needed.
It was enough, and for a moment, the cub felt an incomparable softness, and with the softness, an equally strong desire. The feather wildly scattered itself lower, towards the mesmerised fox's face, until landing between his eyes. He closed them and the feeling intensified, but, within seconds, vanished as the feather was once again riding the night's gust. The fox began to sprint across the garden in search for the feather and the feeling. It was dark, but his eyes were fast and sharp, he spots the feather cutting through the dim light of a window lamp. But the cub's hopeful eyes were lost when rain fell fast and an early morning light chased the feather past the trees and into the day.

Great piece by joerud! Could be a good one to use as a soundtrack to a visual piece or remixed to expand on the story.
Would love to see this one go further!
