Description
At last I've recovered enough to put out something new and though I re-posted a song for Halloween last week, I want to post this as a kind of 'alternative' Halloween song because after all, not everything that walks at night is evil.... good spirits abound too LOL. I don't know how it turned out like this, because it was after i got the drums and bass in that I started to write some lyrics and these words just flowed as if they were meant to be... then all that was needed was the sparkles.This is longer than my usual songs, but it needed to be in 'CinemaScope', since it's about the Universe and that's quite a wide place you know. Try to relax with eyes closed as you listen and you just might get carried away to other realms..... by good spirits mind. Hope you like this, M

Lyrics
A Beautiful Sky

Layin’ on the grass when the Sun went down, I saw a beautiful, beautiful sky,
A river of stars was shining there and it almost made me cry

When I thought about just how small we are in this Universe so vast,
As we sail on this Beautiful planet ship, in the Heavens where we’ve been cast.

Gazing up at that stream of lights, on that deep blue velvet sky,
I got to thinkin’ ‘bout where we go when from here we fade and die.

Then as if by magic as I looked up, a golden ship sailed by,
Angels lowered laddered ropes, to the Earth from way up high.

Souls were rising from the ground, to climb the golden ropes,
To where they could be comforted, calmed and given hope.

When the ship was fully laden, with people all aboard,
A trumpet sounded, ropes were hauled; the ship no longer moored.

A Gentle breeze caressed my cheek and I heard a choir sing,
As the ship sailed off up the Milky Way, I felt my tears sting.

I drifted off in the deepest sleep ‘til I felt the cool night air,
All was still as I rubbed my eyes, wond’ring how long I’d been there.

I wondered too, if all I’d seen, truly had been real,
Did I simply drift away in a vision or a dream.

Or did I see what does go on in the hours when we sleep,
I’ll never know the truth of it, but the memory I’ll keep.

sennheiser mic. is great here -
if this is what you are using here -
yes everything at night this time of year is
not evil - - - agree - good smooth output here -vocally too - saturation level is great -
i like this style - lyrical story is catchy !
a very modern sounding piece instrumantally - yet worldly and not dated vocal-wise . . .

Nice
to meet you Scott, thank you for listening and the very nice words. Really pleased you like the backing as I wondered if it was a bit much, even though I wanted it to 'stretch out', just like the Universe. That's why it's so long.The Sennheizer (I spelt it wrong the first time LOL) is good for speaking, as it has a sharpness to it that my Sure doesn't. Again, thank you for calling in, regards M

A Beautiful Sky
Some nice images in the lyrics "A river of stars", "Angels lowered laddered ropes". I like the way the lyric tells a story. The synth pads you chose are appropriate to the theme, and I agree with your comment below that the bass line (Rnb feel here) imparts a sense of movement. Understated vocs work well with the mood of the piece.

Moviz said 2405 days ago (October 28th, 2010)
Thank you
for listening Dave; very pleased you liked the lyrics and my choice of synths and although it was a sailing ship, i wanted the slight chug-chug of an engine sound (synth) to also give a sense of movement as well as the bass, regards M

The bass lays in perfect.

Vocals sound great Maurice
I couldn't help hearing Monty Python's "Universe Song" while listening to this - I've just come from Egobandit's latest :) Very nice use of synths and some interesting drum/bass rhythmic things happening - a good post Maurice. Very enjoyable!

Moviz said 2405 days ago (October 29th, 2010)
Haven't
heard that one Neil (Monty Python), but I heard Ego's song. I'm glad you like the use of synths; the bass came as is from GB and the drums too, but I put them through a filter 'granulator, to give a different sound.... and of course I stretched it out to give the feeling of space.... and glad you like the vocals LOL. Thanks for calling regards M

Saltaireguru77 said 2404 days ago (October 29th, 2010)
Superb stuff Maurice
Sometimes I should consider in all my efforts to make a big tune that sometimes the spectacular nature can be achieved by delicacy rather than with a sledgehammer! This is really relaxing and at ease with itself and it's place in the audio range. It just seems to arrive. Loved it! And of course your vocals as always are stellar, no pun intended!

Moviz said 2404 days ago (October 29th, 2010)
You're
so right Stephen about sometimes a simple approach can be as good as a big one, though of course it does depend on the song etc. (as I said above, this was only three chords C/Cma7/Dm) Very pleased you found it relaxing.... thank you too for the welcome comment about both song and vocals; much appreciated, regards M

Thank you
for that description Chris; you're right in that it did all just seem to fall into place and I think I got my inspiration from when I went to Norfolk (no street lights there in the countryside) when the stars are much clearer, especially looking through my son's telescope. Again, thank you for listening, regards M

Oh yes! I sure do like this! I couldn't agree with you more, not all spirits are evil. The comfort i felt as I listened to this reminded me of comfort food. So now you've coined a new description for music: Comfort food music - could become a whole new GENRE! LOVE IT! LOVE IT! Thanks for posting it and for the download.

shavingronaldscar said 2402 days ago (October 31st, 2010)
Sweet!
The whistle in your voice on the "s" sounds is a little sharp here and there, but otherwise this is really well done. I love those synths, and that descending chord progression. Really cool voice, it works really well in this style.

Moviz said 2402 days ago (October 31st, 2010)
Thanks
for giving this a listen Joachim... I know what you mean about the 'S', though I did try to reduce it, it was leaving the vocal tones a bit too muddy. I wanted the warmth there, but for that I had also to leave enough treble. I must say in MP3 it's more pronounced. Thank you again for listening and for the nice word, glad you liked it, regards M
