bolanesque/everyone's a star (reference mix)

The fragment 'bolanesque' was sitting on my hard drive for many months. It was one of those things that you say to yourself 'this sounds good - I must do something with it'

I tried to enlist help from a couple of people in developing it (most notably Robert Shaw who came up with the lyric and the vocal melody)

What you hear here is the original 'bolanesque' fragment - with a 'constructed melody' from prosperine - created in soundforge. This is followed by an early version of 'everyone's a star' in which I did all of the vocal layers myself...

Ultimately I managed to get vocal contributions from Robert, David Griffiths and Carli Spina and 'everyone's a star' blossomed into this

everyone's a star
up there with their chosen ones
but if you don't fit the mold
you;ll never be cast in bronze

Nice beginning...
of something with a much bigger potential.Tends to just sit there and go nowhere fast,which at times is O.K, but not for too long.Thats just a personal taste issue.The song has some great elements,nice vocal work,interesting use of sound sources.Would like to hear a expanded version with a few changes to add interest.

Another nice one
Reminds of 'Air' esp the album 'Moon Safari'. Again this is a really good listening experience and again no download. Oh well at least I can come back here and listen to it. Keep up the good work and look forward to hearing more of your tunes.
