Red Robin Posted October 27, 2011 Share Posted October 27, 2011 http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b308/RedRobin_05/MySpace_Banners/AlphaState_480.jpg Third song in my player on MySpace: http://www.myspace.com/redrobinmusic Not mastered yet - Something which we'll have done professionally when the album is finished. Steve is a very experienced keyboard player with his own private recording studio and Lauren is a young singer I'm good friends with. And I play Native American woodwind flutes. We meet up every week in Steve's studio. This song is the result of simply switching everything on and improvising, just the three of us and with my booth door open so we could all see each other. One take for each of us and just a minor amount of editing afterwards. We added the strings (sample library) and Tibetan chime (real) later but that's it. Steve was brought up as a classical pianist and has over 40 years experience playing everywhere. Lauren recently left university where she studied music here in the UK. I've been playing 10 years and can't read music or ever repeat a song - I always improvise - To the point where I have come to believe that my flutes play themselves. If I think about what notes to play I'm instantly lost and can't even stand the metrognome or whatever it's called. We used an Apple loop for rhythm and saw no reason to change it. Anyroadup, sit back, close your eyes and I hope you'll enjoy eight and a half minutes of chill. Here's a pic I took of of Lauren because she's much prettier than we are: http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b308/RedRobin_05/Music/Lauren/Lauren_536v5_RR.jpg Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
