Neverland (w/illuminati)

Description
From Lisa: Last year, Matt and I met and did a song, Bringing Down the Satellites, and had so much fun doing it that we thought it might be cool to do a whole album's worth of songs together. After 65 months of arguing over a band name and album title, we're finally ready to release our first song as The Orbiting. All future Orbiting songs will be posted on our band page. but we thought we'd use my page to launch our first song and hopefully get feedback to help us improve this before revamping and moving it over to The Orbiting's official page.

I have to offer massive thanks to Pie who listened to mix after mix, suggested tons of fixes and generally allowed me to use him like a Pie plug-in. Also gigantoid thanks to alley-oop for doing the song art.
----------
From Matt: Thanks to Lisa for taking this simple little song to the second star to the right, and straight on 'till morning. Thanks to the MacBookPro for not balking at adding track after track of heavily effected software synths and random sonic nonsense. Yes, I know I promised to keep it under 10 tracks. I lied. You are truly 15.4 inches of goodness.
Thanks to my family for putting up with my starry eyed dreams of being a famous rock star (as opposed to just a rock star).

I hope you enjoy our little tale of escape, love, and loss. Here's to staying on the ground. Of course, we'll all have to dodge the
satellites.

Lyrics
Victoria's time has passed us by
no need to keep one eye on the sky.
Maybe that book
always had it right.
When it's time to grow up,
love will always fly.

If you'd told me
all you were offering
was a trip to Neverland
I'd have stayed on the ground.

You measured me for a hollow tree,
an empty doorway,
perfect for me.
No matter how I bent,
the fit was never right.
The risk in trust is abandonment.

If you'd told me
all you were offering
was a trip to Neverland,
I'd have stayed on the ground

I do believe in fairies x4
I believed in you.

If you'd told me
all you were offering
was a trip to Neverland
I would have stayed on the ground.

If you'd told me
(fly away)
If you'd told me.
(the fit was never right)
was a trip to Neverland.

When you post...
...you mean bidnezz.
Once again, bold strides in your voice and production.
I can hear all of the things you have learned this year come to fruition in
this composition. Crisp, clear, and moving. I am excited to hear an album
come of you two. The perfect match.
I hope our new song turns out as amazing as this.

When you post...
Thank you Brandon. Having heard the music for our collab, I have no doubt
it'll be terrific. Your music can't miss.

illuminati and I are a good match, two children of the 80's trying to drag
ourselves out by our Molly Ringwald lunchboxes (don't lie, Matt, I know you
had one).

Well, Tink...
...if I clap my hands, do you recover from the heartache? You know,
feel better, get the gig with Disney, the whole nine?...

I can't tell you how happy I was to come home to this. Didn't I just post
something about 'Satellites' this morning? I do b'lieve I did.

Another excellent ledeb foray into oblique storytelling. I have this
whole fantasy/impression that if I listen to every song in the right
moood in the right order at the right time the whole story comes clear.
Names. Phone numbers. Spy satellite shots.

And this is, oddly, both oblique storytelling and direct storytelling, with
a nice long multifaceted extended metaphor.

I like the probably-faux guitar sound/loop, and then the bloopy bass
slide bit, and the bass chords over the 'chorus'... The drums/beat suits
the song very well, and the electric lead is simple and nice...

I'm very excited that the two of you are being a BAND. Let me just nip
over here and set up my 'Orbiting' playlist in iTunes...

At this point of course I am a fan not a critic, so this is what you get...

Well, Tink...
Thanks Ejh. I was very excited to hear your reaction, since you've been such a
big supporter of Satellites. Please make sure my little friend gets the chance
to hear this and tell him I said hiya.

If I recover from heartache, though, whatever will I write about? Pony-
unicorns sniffing flowers and monkeys in tutus? I think Mungo could make
that work, but I'm not so sure about me. :-)

Bloopy bass bit is a very, very technical term. I think I like it and I'm very
excited that you're setting up a playlist. Hopefully, you'll soon have more than
three songs.

Everything about this is yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmy! You guys belong together and I'm happy to know that there's more to come from you two - I'm not so good at detailing what it is that I like in a tune and what makes it easy for me here is the fact that I like all of the phat chunks of goodness about this as well as every smallest and barely perceptible little nuance of this - All of which one can tell, a great deal of attention was given toward making them apart of this piece of gruvn slice of magic - Eeverything; the writing; the lyrics; the instrumentation; Lisa, your singing... Man this is just all good - Thanks for sharring - A verrrrrrrrry Nyce piece of work - Dion

It's a little known fact that all my song are, in fact, edible, although some

you, there's no need to pay extra.

Saved By The Belle...
This tune was nicely performed and produced in support of an
interesting lyric and lovely vocals. In fact, I think this may be your best
vocal performance to date, Lisa. ;-)

My only suggestion would be aimed at improving the arrangement.

I found the almost two minutes of that repetitive guitar arpeggio at the
start this tune to be very distracting. While the bass line helped to ease
the monotony somewhat, I think an occasional musical flourish and
perhaps a contrapuntal melody line here and there would help even
more.

While the vocals eventually *rescue* this tune from its instrumental
repetitiveness, they deserve a more detailed arrangement, to help
elevate this song.

Thanks so much for such a detailed comment, Joe. We're very serious about
redoing the song for the next go-round, knew we'd taken the song as far as
we knew how to/could stand and I'm very grateful for your excellent
suggestion.

Saved By The Belle...
Excellent idea. I went back and listened to this after your observation.
It's minor change ups like a different guitar riff at the breaks. Just to feel a
stronger change (creating more dynamic tension).

Thank you very much, Eric, for the comments on the vocal. I use what I have,

Very pretty song.
I would, but I don't have any safety pins...or attitude.
futzpucker said 4224 days ago (May 26th, 2006)
What a great beginning...
The sound of this song is great. Very clear throughout the frequencies.
I like the three-against-two feel of the guitar part. The additional
guitar in the second chorus really lifted the song nicely, and the
change after the chorus was another good arrangement decision. I also
liked the synth pad you brought in at the end of the song.

And then there's the voice of ledebutant... Lisa, your vocals
consistently reveal your personality because of how they are delivered
- without affect, real, honest, sincere, and delightful. The marriage of
your vocal and the instrumental track brings just the right amount of
intensity and release.

I am one of many here who will be anticipating every song you two
produce for the CD. Congratulations on your debut.

What a great beginning...
As always Patrick, you are very generous with your praise and your detailed
analysis of the song. I like the changes in guitar, too. I think Matt did a great
job with the music and it's been fun watching the song evolve as he added
elements. The vast majority of the song, he played. I think it's only about 20%
loops, which I think may only be some of the percussion and guitar? Is that
right, Matt? I don't know why I felt the need to say that here, but heck, why
not? ;-)

Thank you so much Patrick for all you give here.

The Orbiting said 4223 days ago (May 27th, 2006)
What a great beginning...
As far as loops go, and I know this is a touchy subject for some, there are a
couple percussion loops and a few guitar loops used. The other percussive
elements and guitars were played on my handy-dandy M-Audio Keystation 49e,
mostly because it's a long walk to the room where my Ensoniq SQ-2 resides. I
know it doesn't sound like it but there are almost 40 tracks here, though most
of them are Lisa making armpit noises at key points in the song. And you
thought all she could do was sing (she writes great music too!).

ledebutant said 4223 days ago (May 27th, 2006)
What a great beginning...
You actually chose one of the few skills I have always wanted to master, but
never could. I also can't burp on cue, so you're going to have to scratch any
plans for a burp-heavy remix, Matt.

You dork!
The Composer said 4224 days ago (May 26th, 2006)

Great track you two. Lisa's voice shone through really well here and the
mix was very good too.

My favourite points... The 3/2 guitar stuff in the background... nice and
subtle, but different enough to be interesting... Lisa's voice of course,
very sweet and innocent like... I particularly liked the harmonies on "An
empty door way" very oriental. Also this song has a nice sort of
constantsy that reminds me of Jiguma I think.

The things I'm not so sure on... the fade outs at the end I never like...
but in this case they could've worked for me IF they were a little
longer... it sorta felt like it was "Ok, next song!" kind of a situation.
Avoid too many fade ins/outs if you can... but don't cheat yourself on
them when you do it.

The other thing is about the guitar solo... when it first comes in, its ok
because its in the background... but when you made the solo out of
it... it became starkly obvious that it was a midi instrument and
completely lacked any sort of lyrical flow or emotion. It reminds me a
lot of those old toy keyboards that sound at exactly the same volume
no matter how hard you press. My feeling would be to either contract
a guitarist to quickly do a real solo for you... or to just cut it out all
together and make the bridge into a 2 or 4 bar drum break.

Nicely done, look forward to hearing what else you guys come up with!

Matt here from the Orbiting. Thanks for the constructive criticism. We actually
have farmed the solo out to a guitarist who shall remain nameless until the
proper and most advantageous moment and eagerly await adding his organic
efforts to our little song. The solo that exists currently in the song was recorded
as a placeholder, and then I touched it up a bit at the close of mixing. But "old
toy keyboard?" You cut me to the quick, good sir! I was so proud of my first faux
guitar solo, and now I don't know if I'll ever be able to select that synth preset
again. All kidding aside, your observations are astute and I know Lisa and I
appreciate them.

Sorry to discourage you there Matt... I was actually hoping that it was just a
pencil tooled job so I wouldn't have been offending anyone. Its more that
guitar is very hard to fake with midi/samples... and being a solo, all of that
came through with neon lights around it for me. It is possible to do... (fake it
well that is) but its not worth the time and effort if you've got a guitarist
avaliable, which I'm glad you do.

Can't wait to hear it with the Mystery Member.

Thanks, Bryan for such good advice. I'm the one who did the end fade-out
and, as I was doing it, I kept wondering where on earth to start the fade. I
don't know if you'll see this, but do you have any general or specific advice on
where to start a fade and how slowly the fade should happen. It'd definitely
an area where I feel lost.

The Composer said 4222 days ago (May 27th, 2006)
Smooth
Advice on fade outs... even though I still don't like them... I've spent some
times going through as many fade outs as I can in my iTunes playlist (Opeth
the Swedish Death Metal group has heaps btw...) and there's one thing
practically all of them have in common.

They all last at about one full cycle (sometimes a little more, but never less).

By one cycle in your case, it would mean a whole chorus... which is around
about 8 bars (I think). What you did in this case was around about 5 - 6 bars
long... cheating yourself out of 2 - 3 bars of radio time. But you did start it in
a good place though, just at the start of the next repeat of the chorus, so
kudos for that.

Of course, if you're mucking around with this on another track and it feels
that just one cycle isn't long enough... try 2 cycles. Just remember that most
popular music does everything in powers of 2 (1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64 etc) so if
you're ever unsure of the right amount of times to do something... those
numbers are a good safe start.

Thanks so much, Bryan, especially for doing research in coming up with the
number of bars for me. I really, really appreciate it. How much do I love it that
you listen to Swedish Death Metal?

You know, I think I've always taken fades for granted, but will give a great
deal more thought to avoiding them. The other song I worked on with Matt
had a solid ending and I can think of a few others I've done that have a finish
rather than a fade and I think I agree with you that it's a stronger way to go,
generally.

Thanks for the information, again. You are so tremendously generous.

Thanks for the mention of pitch. As you know, that's been a problem for me

advice in that area was invaluable.

You were so right about the fairies montage production. It's actually one of
my favorite parts of the song now, but I used to hate it. You're always right.
But you knew that already.

nicely and the more ethereal harmonies make a lovely contrast.

Is there a Macjams superduo lounge? If not I think there should be. We could
listen to Captain and Tenille and Wham! exclusively (okay, maybe not...)

Matt and I are having lots of fun. In fact, I think we both realized that we had
decided to do an album because we crack each other up and we both had a
little nervous patch when we started to work because we realized that we had
wanted to do this together because of liking each other as people, rather than
being sure that we were compatible musically. Thankfully, it's working out
very nicely. Whew!

Thanks, Rebsie for saying you liked the song. You know I'm your creepy
number one fan, so I love to see you.

Sad, painful, lovely lyrics
I guess what I enjoy most about this piece is your voice, Lisa. Not just
your singing voice, but your lyric voice. Your voice! It's good to have a
voice that is so clearly identifiable and engaging, on paper as well as in
headphones. Love the lyrics and the music.

My only suggestion for your "final" mix is really more of a question:
why does this song fade in? Why doesn't it have a start? (I am guessing
there is a reason...)

Excellent work, you too. I look forward to more orbiting...

Thanks for being supportive and saying that you enjoyed the lyrics. Your
question on the fade-in is good. I think it may come down to having done it
because we thought it sounded cool, but on the next try we're going to test
out some alternate openings, so thanks for the suggestion.

1. I appreciate that you are able to enjoy our song, though it is seriously

2. I'm a little concerned about this whole getting fired thing. One the one
hand, if you get fired, then you'll have way more time to do music, but on the
other, you'll be doing it on the street and it might be hard to find electrical
sockets. I say, listen at work, but under your desk so no one sees you.
And...COWBELL FOREVER!!!

collaboration can be a challenge at time. Luckily, Matt and I tend to see eye to

often.

I've found collaboration an excellent way to learn, so any compromises that
have to occur, are always offset by the education I get.

I can't
wait for the album. You guys make a great team. I love the feel of this song, and Lisa your voice, as always, just sounds divine. Great writing and production. Minor thing: I woulda preferred an actual beginning and ending instead of the fades. In fact, the beginning doesn't sound like it needs a fade at all, it already has a good start. The ending seems to fade too fast, like the mean DJ is fading the song during a chorus. If the song is going to drift off into the sunset like that, it should do so more casually, methinks. Ah hell, it's a small point that I don't really care about because the singing and music are so damn good. I'm looking forward to the next time that the saucer touches down and leaves some music, you guys rock!

Very skilled...
I'd give it a number 10. This is like your best song ever, not that all of
yours aren't already pretty good. I really like that 'stay on the ground'
sorta part, 'cause that just caught me right there. This may be like,
stupendous, awesome, I don't know how to say all of it...

So, ledebutant, you're doing pretty good on your songs. More than I
have anyway with my songs. I haven't been able to really do that or be
on Macjams between school and everything. I might do it this weekend.

Sincerely,

thepeep

P.S. Make every song as good as this one!

So, Edge, I look forward to your comments most of all. I'm glad to hear you'd
give it a 10, because that's how I feel about all of your songs. Thanks for
taking time away from your busy schedule of school and everything to come
by and give this a listen and I'm happy that you're thinking of making some
music yourself. I'm still waiting on Like Rockets to Go and Clouds of Love.
They're great titles. Please say hi to your dad for me.

I'll try to take your advice to make every song as good as this one. Maybe I'll
try to make the next one even better.

Sincerely,

Lisa

Bravo!
This is absolutely wonderful!
Ledeb, your voice is *perfect*....oh...did I say perfect? *Perfect!*
The harmonies, the way the voice weaves in and out, the accents on
the words...perfect!
Probably your best vocal delivery to date (oooh..that sounds so cold!)
But really...marvelous!
Matt, what a great backing track here. I look forward to the next
version too, though this is fab!
Terrific duo--more! More! A whole CD more!

Matt's backing music is great isn't it? It was very easy to write for.

jiguma said 4223 days ago (May 27th, 2006)
Blown away!!
I have a confession to make - I really haven't been checking out much
music here at MJ recently. That's my only excuse for having to wait for
a visit to my song by Lisa to think "maybe Lisa has a new song up"!!
Anyway, now I'm here, I'm most impressed. Matt, your playing is
perfect - there's so much to like in your backing tracks here. Excellent
bass in the beginning (and I love fade-ins!), very cool drums and it's all
just great!
Lisa, I've always liked your voice, but this is far and away the best I can
remember you doing - the Rode sound is individual and suits your
voice very well. Interesting lyrics. Bloody fantastic production. This is
all first class.
Love it!

Thanks Neil. I did the bass on this track, too. It's good to hear that a bassist,
likes it as well. I think Matt did such a good job on the music.

I adore my Rode. There is definitely an issue with essiness, but I think I'll
learn how to work around that soon enough. The gain in warmth and clarity
are definitely worth it. I may upgrade, but I think I'll always have this mic.
ledebutant said 4220 days ago (May 29th, 2006)
Blown away!!
No, I didn't DO the bass. I meant to type DIG the bass. That's one hell of a
typo. Sorry, Matt.

Nice and mellow!
First of all I would like to thank you for all your comments and nice words through the last months. It`s still great to be in this community with such great artists and lovely people. But now it`s time to tell something about your latest tune: reminds me of "My name is Luca, I live on the second floor...", and a bit of Rickie Lee Jones, but it`s also unique and new. Feels like you`re on the way to find the niche you`re fitting in. Pro mix, sounds great, beautiful voice! What more can I say? :)
Ah... High marks:)

echoroom said 4222 days ago (May 28th, 2006)
Flying away
This is such a great piece of work, I don't know where to start. Firstly, I
always get into songs via the lyric, and this is wonderful - ' I would have
stayed on the ground' is such a kick in the teeth, in the context of the
book and it's use in your lyric ... the risk in trust is abandonment ... I
could go on for ages - this has so many facets, and interpretations.

Musically, it's such a gentle tune, but with teeth - it sucks you into
thinking this is gonna be kinda nice and sweet, then gently pulls the rug
away. Hey - this comments page is running into infinity, which speaks for
itself - let us know when the records out, i'll be buying it.
Check out my latest song called Heaven is Waiting
ledebutant said 4220 days ago (May 30th, 2006)
Flying away
What can I say, echoroom, you really nailed exactly what I was getting at with the lyrics and that pleases me tremendously. I've got a girly voice and there's not much I can do about that, so I tend to try to put the bite in the lyrics. I've always seen that line about trust and abandonment as the knife in the song, but often wondered if it was too overt. I'm glad to hear that you don't, since I really respect your writing.

Thanks for pulling the lyrics back to the book, too. I've always seen Peter Pan as an incredibly romantic story, but with a very sad ending for Wendy and Peter, both. I had the book very much in mind and even pulled it out when I was writing the lyrics, so I'm glad you can see the references.

I think Matt's music really supports the meaning well. I like the whipping sounds in the outro, especially. ;-)

thoddi said 4222 days ago (May 28th, 2006)

...that i listened to this song at work, and thought of going back to comment when I go home... and seeing your comment on my song reminded me... sorry:P

Anyway I'm here now:)
How exciting that you are forming a band together.
Your voice is so smooth and the kind that sneaks under my skin and keeps me warm on a cold day, Lisa. The music is very suited for it as it flows along in its laidback style. The future for your band looks bright. Now get on with making more great music for us:)

Really excellent song... Lisa -always a beautiful vocal- your voice has
such a calming effect on me.

The shuffling drums and that smooth bass line tied it all together in a
nice, neat package. Plus the little synth bit on the faded was pretty cool
(reminded me of Alphaville for some reason).

Very nice job! I look forward to hearing the rest!

I'm in awe. This is the first tune I listened to here, and it's awesome. I
thought this was supposed to be an amateur site! Only little things I'd say
is the guitar intro seemed a little long, and I wasn't crazy about the
fadeout ending. But this is truly wonderful. Great lyrics!
ledebutant said 4217 days ago (June 2nd, 2006)
Awe
Thanks so much for making our song your first listen, Morris and welcome to the community here. As far as being amateur, I don't think you can get more amateur than me, a stay at home mom who didn't know she could write a song a year ago, who, until recently, didn't even own a mic stand and thought compression was something that happened if your jeans were too tight. Matt, on the other hand, was in a sucessful New Mexico band called New London in the 90's, so he's a quasi-retired pro, I suppose.

If you go back and listen to my earliest songs, first you'll pass out in horror, then you'll hear that the people here who know what they're doing are very, very generous in sharing their knowledge and that's why my songs sound better these days (not to mention having a collaborator who's a production wiz).

The bottom line is that the people here are insanely supportive and generous and I hope you'll enjoy yourself here.

Once the singing starts then I'm off on the journey. The vocal are

hello there......
...... i love everything. the breathy, closeness of your voice, the wish of staying 'real' rather than being led by pipe dreams, the beautiful music, and the overallness of the track. brilliantly produced.

the only thing i can say is that i'm not a fan of mixing the voice so high........look, i love your voice, but it would cut through even if mixed a little lower. just my tastes. but i'm a big fan of what your collaborator is doing, and i think he deserves some more.....um.....presence. and i do realize this is the level choice for most pop mixes..... but your stuff is not 'most pop'......... really a minor quibble. i loved this.
Check out my latest song called lit with a wet match.
ledebutant said 4216 days ago (June 2nd, 2006)
hello there......
THANK YOU! I tried very hard to be aware of the level of the vocal in the mix
because I think I mix it too high most of the time (mostly because, when I
first started doing this, I read somewhere that a singer should feel that the
vocal is louder than he/she is comfortable with. Hah!)

At the end of our mixing process, I still felt the vox was too high and I sent it
around asking for opinions and everyone said, "No, it's fine." So, I decided to
ignore my discomfort and chalk it up to my ears being fatigued from the
hours with headphones, mixing. When no one but screamalexz and I seemed
to feel the vox was too high after posting here, I thought that maybe I was
just being nutty, so it's really good to get your feedback, atonalis.

I was just listening to the song on the stereo and cringing at my voice being
too much in front. To be honest, I'm not a huge fan of my voice and would
much rather have it buried a little further back in the mix being helped a bit
by the music. I wish I had the patience to finish a mix and then wait a day or
two to listen again, but I get very excited when I think I'm finished and want
to post right away. Thankfully, we're re-doing this one with a guitar player
and I'm definitely going to move my vox back a bit in the next version.

Thanks so much!

hmmmm
I loved the lyrics, well-written bittersweet lamentation.

I loved the singing and harmonies, Lisa, your voice is a bottomless
cenote that the listener gladly disappears into... so smooth and
delightfully feminine.

The production was quite good, everything was crystal clear, pretty
cool to have access to the "Pie Plug-in" (though when I read that, my
brain suddenly inserted "Does this Pie plug-in make my butt look big?")
I'm not too big on fade in/out, but it was OK here.

The backing instrumentation seemed a little repetitive for me, I was
expecting the jangly guitars and bass to change after the 10th line... I
like more chord variation, but that's just me.

Overall, very smooth, clean and listenable, but I do like some of your
others better, melodically.

ttfn,
Drakonis

Cake!
Luscious... drifting... Could have been a folk song, but the trappings of the instrumentation fit well on your voice.
It seems to me there are a mishmash of influences going on here... but the subtle borrowage has left me mute to what they might be...
DIg the tune, performance, the whole darn cake!

I've been trying ..
.. to place the sound of this song for a long while and finally worked it out (I think). It's Dream Academy who did "Life in a Northern Town" - I LOVE that song. It coincided with us discovering we were going to live in the north of England for a year in 1986.
