Lady of the Lake (w/ Mystified)

Description
This is the first in a series of collaborations between Mystified and myself. I will be compiling them under the project title Lady of the Lake, not only the title of this initial lament, but also becuz The Lady is the image I have of Mystified as a singer. This first piece is short, yet I hope it stays with you a while. Please consider it a prelude. (Artwork is by the appropriately named Lancelot Speed, 1919.)

A huge thank you to Mystified, who was in lovely voice the evening she recorded this. Her performance is heartfelt, emotive, classical yet somehow raw and evocative. Her consonants (and sudden inhales) move across the soundscape like bows across strings; her vowels penetrate with timeless introspection. I am thrilled we will be doing more together.

Other collaborations with Mystified:
I Am Yours (Last Embrace Behind the Wall)

Lyrics
The lyrics are in a made-up language, which is part of the concept behind all the pieces we are collaborating on. Voices from the subconscious, before words were turned into something other than emotional metaphors.

Very mysterious and evocative..
Thank you. This is one of those pieces in which the sounds help write the piece.
I was actually just trying to find the right layering and patch-tweaking to arrange
something else entirely, and as I auditioned different strings, I began playing
this figure. I recorded it quickly so I could get back to what I needed to be
doing, adding the double reeds later to fill it out. It fit the sadness and
overflowing compassion of the Lady of the Lake character. It's as if Mystified is
channeling something heavy and ancient as she sings, like a goddess, bringing
the true nature of the piece to light.

Tantalizing
This brief piece certainly makes me want to hear more.
There is a richness to Mystified's vocals in this that I'm not
sure I have heard before. A woman of many voices, to be
sure. Excellent arrangement, Tobin. Beautiful mix.

Tantalizing
Like Maria Callas, that's what I thought of when I first heard her tracks. The
depth of sound was so saturating, I actually thinned it out using some EQ
compression, becuz I was overwhelmed. This mix lightens the sound of both
the cellos and her lower soprano qualities so that they don't conflict. Yes, I am
excited about what is to come, as well. Thank you for you eagerness, it means a
lot.

This piece...
like love, and life... is too short! Which may be the perfect
length for it. There is beauty, longing, earthy siren-
calling, soft restlessness... very evocative, and very well
written and performed. Tobin, nice rich strong bed of
strings (I like the double-bass coming in at the very
end)... Mysti, powerful vocal performance. I look forward
to hearing more from you two! Nice "second" choice of
artwork, though I liked the first ephemeral image a little
better, richer colors, less stilted pose.

BTW, don't know if you saw this guy, another flash-in-
the-pan MacJammer has been doing "phony-cean" singing
too, check out (http://www.macjams.com/artist/Philos60)

Thank you,
Tobin, for inviting me to sing along on this one!

After listening to this instrumental track for a few plays, it
seemed obvious the style and flavor of voice it needed.
Music like this seems to draw emotion and sound from
the voice naturally, and so by the third take, I had the
melody I thought worked for this.
As for the 'lyrics,' it was Tobin who suggested that I sing a
'made-up' language, and it worked very well! Sometimes
words simply get 'in the way.'

I'm looking forward to doing more on this project as well.

Thanks for your kind comments, Reinholt, Tom, Drak, as
well! :)

i wish i could sing like that. beautiful, haunting. you sound italian, you sing so well! tobin mentioned that he thought he heard hebrew in the lyrics, i agree, but that is the fun of it, i suspect. i always thought of the the lady of the lake as a priestess who knew a dozen langaugaes, some of them unearthly. i think you pick just the right sounds, in every way. bravo!

unearthly
Thanks, Suzanne.
When considering the sound and 'phrasing' of the imaginary language for this song, I decided to use sounds from French and German, primarily. I've always liked the voiced 'ch' of German in singing. The only 'word' I really consciously voiced was at the end and which sounds about like 'morto' --similar to the words morte/muerto/morir, and which I thought was fitting for a lament.

Evocative
Brings me right back to the Cloisters museum, in Manhatten. Naturally, this is supremely good music here, well beyond my meager ability to analyze why I love it, except to say that it captured my aesthetic sensibilities from the start and didn't let go. Beautiful work, Tobin and Mysti.

The Cloisters is a lovely spot. My nephew Chris currently lives there with is wife
and year old daughter. thanks for the nice comments. Yes, this one just came
off my fingers, no analysis on this end either. And, from Mystified's comments,
it just came out of her too. Flow. With all the over thinking I usually do, it is
nice to have one just happen like this.

Chills...
This is hauntingly beautiful and leaves me wanting more. I
glad to see there will be more to come. There comes a time
when the beauty of a voice goes beyond the words the words
it sings. I think anything but a made up language would be a
distraction. This is the comple package Mysti's voice, Tobin's
music, and I love the artwork.

Can't wait to hear what comes next.

Chills...
I can't wait either. The process we are using to do these is different for each
track and that in itself is interesting and enjoyable. As each of us does a draft, it
changes what came before in a fundamental way. The tracks are destined to get
complicated as we go along (I think we have 3 more on the boards right now), so
I have no idea what anything will sound like until we finally post it. Long range,
long term collaboration does take patience!

It's hard to write about this and not use words like "wonderful" or "magical" or "spellbinding" or "fantastic" or "frothing over with swirling multilayered richness", so I give up. I think i will just play it again (for the seventh time)...

boundaries. The combination of Mysti's amazing voice
and Tobin's string work is really beautiful. Looking

Cameron said 4474 days ago (August 25th, 2005)
lovely voice and harmonies
This is a very exciting collaboration, and I look forward to
hearing much, much more.

The concept of this little excerpt is excellent; the
harmonies and overall treatment remind me of Britten and
Vaughn-Williams.

If this is a prelude, I would love to hear more of a quiet
beginning, with thinner orchestration (maybe even solo
vocals) which then builds up to the material presented
here. (Maybe I feel this way because I'm just waking up
now, and this is the first music I've heard today.)

But perhaps you wanted the intensity from the very
beginning.

The balance between strings, winds and vocals is good.
The mix sounded a bit "close" to my ears, not quite how
an orchestra would sound live. Maybe pan the instruments
a little differently (wider in the strings, for example)? It
might help the sound from being too "synthesized".

This brief taste of music is a lovely composition; Myst's
voice is perfect for it, and I greatly look forward to the
expanded suite!

lovely voice and harmonies
Thanks for your careful listening. I just couldn't wait to hear Mystified start
singing and sort of fell in love with the shortness of the piece. The only part I
wish was different were the entrance of the double reeds which is now kind of
buried beneath the vocals. It is always surprising how many details get lost after
vocals are layered in. But the emotions are caught elsewhere and it ended being
a compromise I felt ok making. Again, thanks for your ideas; I will use them as
we move forward with the project.

This is the best performance by Mysti that I have heard (in my humble opinion). The mix is fab, and the music is too. I hope the other pieces are as excellent as this one. I can't wait to hear them.

what can ya say
tobin, this is too beautiful for words except wow and
HOLY CRAP!!!! No one could have pulled this off except
mystified, she is blessed with a great voice and she has
worked countless hours to hone...but it is her skill as an
improviser that is even more astounding...she has music
playing in her head all the time that the rest of us would
struggle to create...and she just opens her heart and out it
comes.

The composition, performance and production are stellar.

Thanks. Mystified supplied nice pre-mix settings. I just tweaked and then

pice a little more lightness. I always spend about one hour per minute in the
post-production process.

Singing in tongues
Great idea to use a made up language. It sounds like a real
one. Meaning is certainly conveyed through the singing.
Beautiful and powerful.

The strings are a bit overpowering, especially in the
beginning. Maybe shifting to more cello and bass strings
would make more room for the vocals and woodwinds.
Check out my latest song called Iridium Flare (2013 Re-Release)
TobinMueller said 4469 days ago (August 30th, 2005)
Singing in tongues
The problem I found in the woodwinds was the vocals, since Mystified sang
unison with a few of the double reed lines. If I were to have redone the entire
instrumentation from scratch, I would need to separate each voice and
instrument thru panning, since I couldn't do anything else with EQ or
compression than I already did. The cellos were downplayed becuz they
conflicted with the voice in the lower mids, so I compressed both of them
(differently) to make room for more diction in the vocals; if I left the vocals at
the level Mystified originally placed them they overpowered the woodwinds
completely; I also wanted to keep some of the string resonance; Cameron's
idea of widening the pan would have been best if I would have gone back and
redone the entire music bed track, which I didn't do (I only remastered it).
Actually, my system must play lower frequencies at a high level becuz other
ears on MJ frequently comment that I need to boost the bass (even tho I listen
to each track on at least 3 systems and they sound good to me, sigh).

Art
This is very short, and like you say I can look at it as a
prelude, which I am. I can't wait to hear the rest of this story
- words or not is not important, the drama, and the beuty
makes me feel like someone is struggeling with a great
problem in life. I am sure you have your own intentions. I
think too that it would be stronger starting out with less of
the strings and build up. The bass break is very, very good
and almost to me, bring in an element of surprise I am
seaching for. The vocals, what can one say, this is high-
class of course, so elegant and strong, yet soft.

TobinMueller said 4469 days ago (August 30th, 2005)
Art
Thanks for noticing the "elegant yet soft" idea. What is so special to me is how
Mystified's voice is capturing the character of the Lady, a woman for whom
words like dignity, conviction and integrity simply cannot explain her depth of
character; a mortal goddess (a pseudo-duality certain people believe is in all
of us) to which a connection to living is innate, natural. This is her at prayer,
before the end-game of the final days of the Celtic way of life. Her prayer holds
history and hope, but everything is intimate to such the Lady, even events
centuries in the past. And everything has many perspectives, becuz she views
the world in much larger time slices. But, above all, she knows how to love, and
that is what pours out of Mystified's voice.

Wow
Stunning track rom the two of you.
It brought to mind a celtic poem called
"The Harp of Cnoc I'Chosgair"
by Gofraidh Fion O Dalaigh. (1385):



Harp of Cnoc I'Chosgair, you who bring sleep
to eyes long sleepless;
sweet subtle, plangent, glad, cooling grave.
Excellent instrument with smooth gentle curve,
trilling under red fingers,
musician that has charmed us,
red, lion-like of full melody.

You who lure the bird from the flock,
you who refresh the mind,
brown spotted one of sweet words,
ardent, wondrous, passionate.
You who heal every wounded warrior,
joy and allurement to women,
familiar guide over the dark blue water,
mystic sweet sounding music.



Slimmie






























TobinMueller said 4452 days ago (September 16th, 2005)
Wow
Thank you for the poem, and the white space to think. I especially liked the line
"You who lure the bird from the flock, you who refresh the mind...
You who heal every wounded warrior ...familiar guide over the dark blue water,
mystic sweet sounding music." Merlyn was often said to have become a bird, in
his dream-states, and travel over the land and especially water. But I really dig
the "lure the bird from the flock." We now have lyrics for a new tune, or at least
inspiration. Thanks for adding to it all so.

Wow - unexpected!
I have a half-written opera called "Merlyn" from which this is taken. I enjoyed
studying that period, those legends, and contemplating the issues around the
massive changes that occurred in Celtic life at the end of the Druid-Celtic era,
the clash with Roman culture that was also on its last legs, and culture clashes
of mythic proportions at every boundary. Since I no longer hope to complete
the original project, working a few songs with Mystie helps bring back the
wonder and magic I felt when first devising the libretto with this work. Thanks
for your curiosity and comments.

Originally, I was going to have this be synth pads with now real orchestral
sounds at all, a keyboardist sound only, but then added the woodwinds and
realized I needed to layer in "real" strings later to create a more realistic sound.
I think there are 6 layers of sounds in the strings, with cellos and violas and
violins separated within chords over the synth pad. If not real, it is warm, which
is what I wanted. Thanks for being able to look past the necessarily synthetic
nature of the backing music.

Beautiful piece, excellent vocals, very tasteful orchestration (must agree with Cameron, however - I know it's your choice, as you see a bigger picture, but for a stand-alone piece, the strings are a tad too intense - it takes away from the overall development). Will wait for more :)

Yes, there is something very special about Christmas music. I love it, too. I've
often tried to analyze what makes it sound like Christmas music and utilize that
sound on occasion. Funny that you should think this one does, since I wasn't
trying to do that on this one, just capture a deep sense of tragedy and fortitude,
more of an Easter theme really. But I know what you mean. There is joy in
Mysties' voice that transcends, and that is very Christmas.

swooping and swirling & soaring ..er ............ of sound.
[ not wall of ...maelstrom of ? ...tide of ? ..torrent of ?
....roller coaster ride of ? ....nope. ] well ' something ' of
sound anyway.
That said i feel you both might be skinnydipping in the
shallows with the luvly Lady du Lac , in terms of quantity
mind you, not quality , more please . very nice indeedy ,
very nice.

vertical music
vertical music is Yours....it seems it desires to ascend - like a DNA - to the sky, like a magic forest - surely interesting, but I think you can still improve it ...there is a little of sense of confusion sometimes... maybe adding rhythmical elements and clearing a little the sound...Anyway, I like very much the idea that I think you want to express.

Otherworldly!
You said that this was "Voices from the subconscious,
before words were turned into something other than
emotional metaphors."

I love the concept. I think that we, as humans, are limited
by the structures that we have created for ourselves, such
as language, logic, and you know, society in general. Once
we created these "rules," we confine ourselves by living
within them, rejecting anything that doesn't fit into the
matrix of what we already accept.

I've always felt that art was in the spaces between these
structures. Not really here, not really there, but rooted in
something primordial that we really can't explain because
our logic wasn't designed well enough to analyze it.

That is where this song lives. Thanks!!

Drowning in the Lake
Serene and sublime. Very well done, and full of grace. The Lord is with
you, or at least the Lady in the Lake, which might even be better.

amazing.
I'm a classical guy, too, with roots in symphonic writing, and appreciate your
comments. I love that the worlds of classical, pop, folk and jazz are able to
cohere in ways that come from a centered place inside me. And that this
community embraces that. Thanks again.

fffffect. I'd put an orhecstral intro in, though, to make it longer, set up the vocals more. Wonder of wonders.
