For this song, I return to my classical roots, in a song consisting solely of vocals.

The creation of “Tristezza,” in a way, was an unplanned journey. An abandoned instrumental composition left behind a few lines of verse, in Italian, that I put to a melody ad-lib, after an unfruitful recording session. It sat for weeks and then another spur-of-the-moment recording session realized the harmonies, again improvised.

I can't get over how and clear and powerful your voice is. It just demands attention and reverence. Bravo!!!!

This is so pure and beautiful. The harmonies are perfect. Sad and perfect. Absolutely amazing. Maybe i should go back to the opera, if you insist...

Thank you all so very much for taking the time to leave comments here!
I really appreciate it, especially for a song as meaningful to me as "Tristezza" is.

***To answer your question, longshot, my 'studio' set up is very simple, ha!
A B-1 Behringer condenser mic attached to a MAudio Mobile pre USB, which attaches to either the iBook or the Mac Mini. I record out of my apt., and i keep the gain low while singing very loud? LOL. That's about it. I 'discovered' recording along with GarageBand in December of '04, shortly after I bought the iBook.
A whole new world, for sure!

Thanks again for your comments! smiley

I remember hearing this song for the first time several months ago. I believe this was the one that 'got my attention.' Now I enjoyed not only hearing it again, the sadness and redemption, but I also enjoyed reading comments here from people hearing your voice for the first time. A new audience discovering you, Cat.

I know more about you now, and about "Tristezzzzza," but it is as lovely to me as the first time I heard it.

Please contact me at your convenience, I would like to discuss this performance with you. I attempted to locate a website for you: do you have one? I was curious in looking at a bio, photos, etc. I am interested in talking to you about what you are doing musically [ in terms of aspirations ], your classical roots, possibly licensing one of your performances. very DIY budget at the moment, but I am dreaming big... I am attaching the following information so that you can get a better picture of who i am.

Could you please also tell me more about the lyrics of this song?

Haunting and introspective at the same time.
I actually just sat in silence for a few moments after it was finished, not realizing that I was still swirling in memory. Bravissimo!

Love it, this is amazing. Your voice is so clear and full; people compare you to angels, but you could sing for God himself (to be romantic about it). I hope my voice is this beautiful someday.
