This is a song I've been working on from time to time for over 3 months. I finally have a version that I feel is ready to upload and I'm dying to hear the reactions people have to it. It's a true labor of love aurally and is my voice a bunch of times singing over gregorian chant loops and a very pushy drum loop. I would like to take this further eventually and have someone mix it professionally for me so that the voices all balance completely but this is good enough to share the joy which this song brings me when I listen to it. Certain harmonies really soothe my brain and stroke my eardrums - can't be sure they're the same ones which would do the same for others, though! Here's hoping. smiley

There's something about this piece that I can't really put my finger on, but it's definitely drawing me in. It's really great (although the drums could stand to be slightly louder IMO).

I love it! The chants, your singing the drums in the back... all together it gives me this kinda tribal feeling but also a kinda pleasurable haunting feeling too.. Iove the layering wich gives it a kinda mystique atmosphere but combined with the lyrics, which are so clear, makes this song a sort of mixture of all kind of feelings blend together to a new feeling that, to speak with Stebbo, is hard to put my finger on..

Great job cCc smiley

Wonderful work Carla, I love your Gregorian friends singing their little hearts out to your amazing vocals. On a constructive critical level, I think the drums need to be boosted significantly they are sitting too far back, you need the sound of the drum a bit louder to keep timing here.

But hey vocally this is sheer brilliance Carla.

Thanks everyone - it's really helpful to hear about the drums. To me they sound so pounding and loud! Almost overbearing. So, it's good to hear other people say they can't hear them enough. I'll try bringing them forward a bit and see if I can stand it. lol

Whenever I post my original songs, where I haven't collabed with anyone else here, people usually say they are too short - in this case, I feel this is too short - just when I'm getting into it, it ends - or maybe the last vocal harmonies need to each be longer - or something.

Anyway, I'm glad people like it - it's so near and dear to my heart, this idea and these lyrics. Thanks for your comments of all kinds. smiley

Wonderful work, Carla. So creative and colorful ! Great vocals, both in tone and melodically - and yes, the drums
could easily come forward.

Fantastic work.

Thanks !
