A few weeks ago, I heard the original, really powerful version sung by Joanna that I totally loved. Of course, I admit, I love everything this woman does, so I am biased! But seriously, she's an amazing singer folks! If you haven't checked out her music by now, why haven't you!?

Anyway, I offered a few suggestions and lo and behold the next thing I knew, I was doing a collaboration with one of my favorite iComp artists!

Isn't iCompositions great?!?

In chatting with Jayman and Baboon, I offered them a sneak peek. They were very gracious to say the least. Jayman was kind enough to offer his technical expertise and mastered it--on the spot (the joys of the internet)! I can't tell you how much better he made it sound!

So thanks to everyone aforementioned-- especially Joanna for creating such a powerful song.

Credits:
Joanna Sandsmark: vocals, lyrics
Jason Trenkler (jayman): technical expertise, engineering
Julian Dwyer: whatever; loops and whatnot.

A perfect success.
The vocals are magic, and the integration of oriental instruments give to the song a great dimension.
This is a very great collab !

Yeah, it's a great tune, with a strong vocal interpretation, it strikes directly the emotions; I heard the original version, this one is musically enriched with many "oriental sounds" and a lot of appropriate nuances and I think the original "pathos" is maintained, so very well done friends!

I agre with all the compliments and again, Joanna, you move us. A brilliant, inspired collaboration. I do have one problem, though. The orchestral strings seem to be to be in the wrong key and detract from my listening experience. Was this for atonality/dissonance? Did I miss a point?

# # # EDIT ADDITON: I've listened to this many, many times and can now better wrap my mind around the strings. I still would chane the keyboard key but I can't demy the great depth and intensity of this piece.

I feel like it almost reminds me of an Indiana Jones movie, when he is over in that type of Eastern Country. Like the singin, especially the eastern improve around the voicing.

Nice Joanna!

Thanks for sharing jdwyer05, Joanna and jayman

I wanted to first listen to the original to see where this came from. What a difference! The oriental/middle eastern accompaniment really brought out a different feeling compared to the folk guitar. Very original! The strings, for me, added a very unsettling mood to the tune. I'd agree with Bob in that they appeared to be in the wrong key, but perhaps that was the point? An emotional piece, well produced. Thanks for sharing it.

Very nice. A middle eastern flair (is that a bapipe in there?) folk song. Love the vocals of course. Great collab!

What a change from the original! Very nice. The strings didn't jar me as much as they seem to have done to others, but I like a few atonal or discordant touches in songs snow and then. They often don't seem out of place to me -- but maybe my ear is off key. smiley

I can't add much to what has already been said. The different touch on the vocals from the original definitely adds to the atmosphere in this one. Nice arrangement on those loops, too.

Incredible. Great song. I can't believe that Joanna is on iComp. She should be charging us for her music (but I'm happy she's not).

The music is great. Did you use the world pack jam pack?

A little bit Peter Gabriel, a little Sting, a little middle eastern vibe. What are those instruments? Is that an Oud? I could hear someone like Bobby McFerrin performing this one.
