After my recent bout with laryngitis, I found that my high voice had mysteriously come back... in a fashion! It's more brittle than the one I had before but I can reach notes which I haven't been able to reach comfortably in years. The other day, I was playing around with some loops (parts of a larger classical piece), and suddenly heard a melody and a concept which I wanted to try and flesh out into an opera aria I could feel inspired to sing and this is the result of all of that.

I wanted to write the lyrics in Italian and used a translation program to supplement the things which came to my mind in my weird operatic Italian and I have no idea if the poetry of the song sounds right - I am hoping that the Italians (and speakers of Italian) here at iComp will give me some feedback on that. smiley

This is sort of a rough draft since I would like to polish it more and warm up my voice a bit more but I wanted to get it up and get responses to it before the excitement of the moment of creation had passed so here it is, warts and all.

Music/Lyrics/Vocals: Carla J. Patterson
Artwork: Carla Cryptic

If interested in such things, come hear an a cappella version of this I just did which sounds a bit like gregorian chanting! smiley

Thanks Futureman, Olympus, and Proliferousrose. Yes, that is a celeste in there - along with some trombones, french horns, and a bassoon. smiley

ArcangeloGorgoni Artist Fantastic interpretation, your inspiration is unique and your voice is very bright.
As an Italian I can tell you that your pronunciation is perfect, while the translation programm a little less ...
If you allow, I will make some corrections to the lyrics.
Peace & Sun
Seasky

tu non mi conosci
il mio cuore è chiuso a coloro che mi colpiscono
la vita che ho condotto è una vita di dolore
ma con la mia forza posso vivere di nuovo

tu non mi possiedi
il mio amore è chiuso a coloro che, nonostante me,
mi hanno ordinato di nascondere
questa vita di lacrime per tutti questi anni

tu non mi vedi
la vita che ho vissuto è più di quello che si possa credere
sei sordo alle mie parole
sei ciecho a miei pensieri
tu non mi conosci

Latest Song: Feel Tight

Thank you so much @seasky - this is exactly what I need. I really appreciate your taking the time to give me your feedback. I feel, too, that you have taken some care to make it possible for me to maintain the relationship between the words and the music even with the new sentence structure. I will try it this weekend. smiley

Such good news!! This is a dramatic piece indeed - I like the lyrics too, and the instrumentation of the music track is lovely.

Some nice tone in your vocal notes, and I'm aware that you must still be making progress towards your former voice. If you can "open up" more for, and therefore relax into, the higher notes I'm sure the richness will come through that I hear in the lower register.

This is truly a breakthrough for you Carla, I'm delighted to hear this, and yes, our duet now seems within reach!
