This is Jamo's track Gravity. He was kind enough to let me play with it and record some vocals. I extended the length, added a bridge, wrote lyrics, and sung them.

This is the first time I have ever added vocals to someone else's work, and it was much more difficult than I imagined (especially since I could hear them in my head the second time I listened to the song). I went through 15 takes over the course of 5 separate days until I finally got something I liked. And it is my first ever romantic track (quite another hurtle for me, that).

And, although I heard the vocal in my head right away, it was only at the last minute that I decided to tie the lyrics back to the original title of the song, but I think that is one of the highlights of the song now, go figure.

Hope you enjoy and a special thanks for Jamo for letting me play in his sandbox.

great piano!
bass line is nice and thick as well
very good song over all. I could have used a little bit more vocals but the hook and louder parts came out really nice!!! But I know how hard it is to get the levels right on someone else's track
Great effects on the voice!
Thanks for this one guys!!

Jamo did a really nice job with the playing and production in this. The thick bass with the percussive twinkly sounds really made me sit up and pay attention. Cool stuff.

Your lyrics seem extra poetic to me somehow, and I really like the effect you got with the doubledl/tripled vocals on the chorus part. Nice collaboration.

[Adding lyrics & vocals to someone else's track can be a fun thing to do. I've done it a few times with FishCow's music and the end product is something I would never had got to on my own.]

Like Night & Day!

Brief Description: The originator jamo created an interesting/catchy melody and then Lenny took it to the next level, Musically & Lyrically.

Pros: This piece is more Vibrate many ways for instance. The added instruments, vocals and Lennys branding in Engineering/Production mechanics that make this piece more Robust!

From the beginning this piece progressively builds via instrumental layering, cunning arrangement that gives a broad spectrum, which works very well until the end of the piece. In addition, Lenny dynamically engineered the percussion very well for instance. The Percussion (chimes) reverberation-fade-away SFX is a very nice touch. Good Ending (use of fade-out). I really liked the megaphone (I call it) vocal mix (reverb/compression, etc.). Nice Work Gents!

Cons: n/a.

Suggestions: n/a

first of all, thank you for making me discover such a beautiful tune as jamo's smiley
and this is a great use you have made of it, in that your lyrics perfectly fit to the original tune's mood, and the vox go somehow in contrast with it; i think the lyrics talk about a very sad situation, but do so with an eye of surprise, of astonishment, rather than desperation, and that's the very same feeling i get from the music; and, on the contrary, the vox give a sense of quietness, almost relaxation, or maybe resignation, which i think is a great choice, in that they don't try to compete with the music, but make a compliment to it. One of the most beautiful things i've heard in quite a while.

This is great!
Jamo's free bass and Lenny's vocals blend very well, I like the double vocals a lot.
It reminds me a bit of the sound of british bands like Kevin Ayers and Soft Machine
Love this one!

Interesting how you switch between moods. It begins with an otherwordly passage and then cuts to an urban, familiar sound. You treat the vocals with a great subtlety that I wouldn't expect from someone's first vocal collaboration, so well done in that department.

Thanks for pointing me here, Trib.

Yo two are doing some really inventive, original and FANTASTIC music. Please, continue charging ahead.

My only quibble is thel evel of some of the vocals vary too much and it was a bit distracting. But not enough to stop me from listening to it again and again! smiley

You've got a really lovely, clean sound on this version, Lenny. Jamo's motifs and basswork are superb in this piece; you've done a great job of building on the strengths of the original. And the lyrics seem just right, matching the music feel of the piece very well.

The vocal lines fit very well over this piece. It all has a very psychedelic feel to it. And 15 takes is not bad! I usually end up doing over 200 takes over a month for every piece I have that includes vocals. But then again, I am a bit too obsessive smiley

Yeah....nice variation of sounds and moods in this track. It's great to hear you sing, you've done a fine job on what I expect was a really tricky (and nerve-tingling) thing to do.

Well done to both of you.

This is an extremely innovative approach to a collaboration. The whole thing feels integrated despite the chopping and there's good clarity and separation. The lyrics are good poetry, dryly delivered but not in any way lacking emotional impact ... reminds me of Zallaz in that regard.
