My first (uploadable) song of the new year - come along with me for the ride! I actually made this song in a wierd way - I tried Songsmith (that Microsoft toy which only works in XP - and has the hokiest sound library of all time!) to start. I scatted a bit to get Songsmith to accompany it and set up a chord structure... then I saved what it did as a midi file, brought it into GarageBand, changed all of the instrumentations to instruments which sounded decent. Then I changed several things using my midi keyboard and playing along with the 'song' till I got something I could sing to. I wrote the outline of a poem and tried to sing it to the music making changes where necessary. Then I added the various scatting - adding 2nds and 5ths where it seemed like fun - and then I saved the whole thing to iTunes and this is the result.

Awesome vocals, but that's nothing new from you -- what I really like is the composition... and the utterly amazing psychedelic breakdown in the middle! That's just fantastic!

Thanks Curran! Glad you liked that trip I went on. smiley And thanks Trevs - it WAS fun - it's an interesting way to get going and I never realized that midi tracks would break down so beautifully until I did this. Silly, though, since I do understand the concept of midi - just hadn't used one of its best aspects till I worked on this. (!)

It sure isn't!!! *typed with frost-bitten fingers* That mid-section with the scat and processed vocals is simply surreal and so so beautiful. Thank you for this winter wonderland, Carla. I'm going to grab a cup of hot tea and have another listen.

Thanks Morgan, so kind. smiley Chris, I thought of you many times when listening to some of the scatting sections - there's something weird and wonderful in some of those which reminds me of your music. smiley

Thanks Justin! Really appreciate your comments also. Love that profile pic, too! We've actually had frost this year a few times - though we still haven't seen any snow. There are pictures of snow in the Bay Area (in the flats no less!) from the early 1900's but never again since.

Surreal stuff! I like the "not out of the woods yet but hope on the horizon" lyric smiley Interesting to read about the process, but YOU, not Microsoft, are the Songsmith here! smiley
