Lyrics
Peace Will Prevail

i'm flying away
into your arms
into the sun

we open our eyes
here at the farm
we see we are one

this is a new day
the sounding alarm
that peace has begun

we're reaching the skies
the world will disarm
we're gonna be one


peace will prevail
don't you know that
peace will prevail

I love the guitar playing. This is a very cool song. It really feels like a big concert venue. Nice job!

well, actually, no guitar was touched in any way on this. i spent as much time on the crowd loops, handclapping, and reverb as i spent on singing and sequencing everything else!

thanks

Hats off to utopian bliss and sweet sweet songs like this one. Great production Bill - the atmosphere is great and your vocals sound really cool. I like the hand claps too.

i had totally forgotten about Up With People. i saw them in high school, but never really knew what they were all about. wikipedia just dispelled that fog...

those handclaps are totally synthesized - using GarageBand only. honest!

the guitar is the Bluesy Acoustic Guitar synth. I started from a few loops and changed around the notes a lot. but i kept the rhythm and expression mostly. i seriously doubt it could actually be played as it is now (too many notes at once).

more about the clap-along in another reply...

Yeah - how DO you get the guitar to sound like that? It's so convincingly an actually-played guitar. This song is just plain wonderful. Love the audience participation clapping - and very impressed with how(ever) you pulled that off. Great job Smokey!

i think the AU Matrix reverb helps a lot overall.

the clapping comes from Classic Hip Hop Remix drum kit. i used two clap sounds plus some extra reverb on them. plus i threw them off rhythm here and there as if the audience lost the beat occasionally (but i on a few more listens i think i over did that!)

thanks!

Dig the live feel regarding the singing. I can't believe the guitars are not played and loops.
Good song.

Maybe 2009 will be like 1969?

Maybe the war will end?

Maybe we will begin to make sense?

the beads in that pic are - my beads - i wore those continuously for a number of years (as in never took em off ever).

they are my identity, literally, in code anyway..., from those years gone by. i still keep them, and trotted them out to compose this little picture.

Dreamy Afternoon
...in the sun, melting into the crowd and becoming a White Admiral butterfly. I'm floating over the crowd, landing briefly on a girl's hair before taking flight and drifting around over a sea of gently swaying people. Everything is colour, everything is music, and life feels so sweet to be this light and this free...

I love the crowd effects here - they're timed and sequenced just right. And you're quite right about the claps working well if you 'off' the timing a hair - I did that will 'Dance Ye Scurvy Swabs' earlier and was pleasantly surprised at how it 'humanizes' the sound. And I have to add my amazement about the guitar.

Time to fly some more. Tuen up the music and drift away...
SmokeyVW said 4102 days ago (March 25th, 2008)

you are so with it man. i was digging that scene too. my chick told me that when you look up at the sky you are seeing half of the entire universe. heavy. very heavy. but the mud was a bummer. we might of split except the all good vibes made us stay.

but seriously - i spent a lot of time on the crowd sounds - glad you noticed that.

thank you sir
