Well, perhaps finally a final version? If it's ok with everyone I'll release it on cd... Hmm... On second thought I'll release it anyway... he he...

As always I really appreciate some constructive critisism!
Ride on, people!

Inventive and delivered in such a stylized way. I love your voice and the emotional wallop the tune creates. It plays between beautiful, difficult, nostalgic and classical all at once.

A true work of art, it feels like so much caring has gone into creating this.

amazing, nicely unconventional - you are brave to release this... it'll be another few years before the general public can even begin to understand this kind of work, I reckon smiley

As had been said, you are an amazing song writer.

You've done a masterful job here. Just beautiful. Graceful beyond category.

I'm glad you brought the vocal more forward and warmed it. The piano, too. Still love the strings, they are even more powerful. And you did add more lyrics! You did not forsake me. smiley

So, when is the CD coming? I'm camping out.

Interesting new mix. I think of all pieces I've heard on iComp, this is my fav--to date. I keep coming back to listen. Here's what I like--the amalgam of references--raspy Waits-like vocals, complex jazz polychords, a phlegmatic bass clarinet solo,and mid 20th century British classical strings. It shouldn't work of course, but it does. It works really well, I like you've taken these references and created--synthesized--them into something new and unique. Bravo. I'm camping out too.

Thank you! This will be the final version it seems. I just need to fix some squeks in the clarinet...

becwil: Yes, I did listen to your wish. I spoke the last lines of the lyrics where I wanted them to be sung and then tried to sing them in about 500 different ways. None worked, so when I finally decided to drop them I realized that I kinda liked them being spoken and left it as it was.

Thanks again everyone for taking time to leave comments!

CD or no CD this is a great song. That bass intro gets you right away into that strange bluesy world and the the vox and piano. Then the strings. It's a building of subtle and powerful sound. What a hip trip! smiley

Very, very nice. I loved the simplicity of the groove, and the orchestration was just superb. Very, very creative. BTW, don't take the squeaks out. It adds a raw, live kinda feel to it.

Where the heck have I been for all this time?
Wow, what a piece, and what a discovery!
the upright bass intro is terrific, and drives the listener to the central vocal part with that great clarinet solo.. amazing! Loved the piano phrasing, the strings, the song's mood, the outstanding production.. the darn whole package.
my sincere conrats, man. I wish I could write a piece like this...

catching and interesting Intro, powerful bass sound & play. As all Instruments.
amazing bassclar.(?) solo. nice structure of the song.
excellent composition!

very interesting also the different blends of music in here: jazz tune goes to pop song goes to classical... but: it still remains one song!

WONDERFUL!

Having not heard the previous versions, nor read everyone's comments I hope I say something useful.

This is superbly constructed, composed, and performed. I think the production is right on the mark, nothing out of place. You took me, totally, into this place and held me there the whole time and I was wowed. It's just an amazing thing you've made here. Surprises, joys, and fascinating textures. Bravo.

Jasus, don't remove the Bass Clarinet squeaks. Just perfect. Then the strings come on... glorioso. Like Dyl, I listen transfixed. This is the music of a composer.

I've been working as a freelance composer since 1999. I'm not famous. I'm not even rich. And of course I've had both ups and downs in my carrer. But every time the future seem uncertain I always come back to this line of comments. It really fills me with love and some sort of strength. And even though the last comment was made 1 year ago I want to thank you all for leaving a mark! I don't know if anone of you will ever read this, but Thanx a lot!! And keep up your positivism!
