After Searching and analyzing I finally found the bug ! The group channels have been Mono and so I had a mono output ! It’s fixed now !!!
Ok, here another try. I did some mixing … the volume releation of the string sections is ok now, but the flute is either too loud or too soft.
Latest Version (pre Mastered). I’m still struggeling to find a good volume setting.
It’s al dull spring saturday and I am bored.
Improvized in 20 mins.
Music, Flute and Interpretation: Karsten Thamm
A bit harmonized and cleaned up scales
I will keep this, as a brainstorming project. Maybe we can transform it into a real project. Let’s see.
Ok, I renamed it into ‘Dull Good Friday‘, because I edited the strings on Good Friday 2016. The strings are now partially distributed over 8 string voices (4 Violin sections, 2 Viola sections, 2 Cello Sections) Base is still missing. Other voices are to come (Winds and Brass).
The volumes are not apropriate, but I’m currently in the process of editing, so the strings are way too loud … all volume relations are not set correctly right now.
It’s not perfect, but this is as far as I go. Actually I’m doing this to make movie- and video soundtracks, so with this project I will finish my series of remaking 70’s and 80’s songs more symphonic. Now I will concentrate on video soundtracks and of course on making won songs for Flute.
This is actually a benchmark project for my recording booth and a practise project for composing, editing and mixing. (Mastering not included, but I tried to make the mix good enough, so I could skip this step).
Anyone else is welcome to use my recording box for singing, but I will stop here.
Original: Led Zeppelin
Composition of additional parts, Interpretation and Production: Karsten Thamm
Copyright: Some record company …. who cares (I’m too lazy to look it up and I don’t want to bother with copyright issues) ? It’s not for commercial use. Read my copyright remarks and just don’t use it (you will find better remakes out there anyway)
I finally did some Mastering (and a complete reqork of the orchestral part).
Ok, this is my version of the 80’s classic Kayleigh by Marillion.
There are some reasons for choosing Marillion songs as my cold season projects:
From a musical point of view they are relatively easy to do, but they are not trivial
In my leate teenage years and my early 20’s I used to be a big Marillion fan. It was the first band I’ver ever seen live.
The album ‘Misplaced Childhood’ is like a mirror to my soul. It is very biographic, not only for the author’s point of view, also for mine.
I know the lyrics by heart for a long time.
Like with ‘Grendel’, the intention is to demonstrate, that 80’s music can be transformed in well harmonized synphonic music.
Again I must admit, that the vocal part can be done better (but not by me, but I have to do it, because I want to express my intention). The flute part can also be done better (also by me, but I don’t have that much of practising time).
