Piece of Peace - private collab


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
For the simple joy of sharing. . .

I recently made this recording - based on the beginning of a new guitar piece - with a friend of mine, Linda LeBlanc. We were rehearsing it for the 15th when we'll perform it as a gift for the anniversary of a common friend. At this point it's only guitar and my friend Linda's lovely voice, although saturday we'll meet with another friend who'll add to it his touch on acoustic or upright bass, something I look forward to hear. We talked about it - he'll use the bow for the theme and normal playing for the improvised part.

As I was listening to it just now, it came up to share it here. It's a tender, soothing piece, and Linda's voice shines here - and I could well see myself getting into making a project with her eventually. Well, inshallah. . .

Voilà. Enjoy.

What a beautiful...
...piece...works so nicely with the artwork. I love the wide open spaces. So much room...and this fits into it so well...sweet leanings between major and minor.

So peaceful and relaxing
I'm falling asleep and I just got out of bed ;-)
Seriously Bernard, this is beautiful: your restrained playing and Linda's floating vocals (and maybe I hear some male voice in back?) are lovely, simple, calming and perfect for relieving stress. Thanks so much for the download.

Our pleasure, Richard
Yes, my own voice does indeed
come in and join the theme
at the end. We love the
harmonies it creates...

Glad you enjoyed it so

Great song title. It sums up the song very well! Very relaxing and soothing. Thanks for sharing!

Boundless said 3546 days ago (December 1st, 2009)
The title, right
To me it points to the fact that every single "piece" of life
inside out, is essentially Peace, made of Peace.
Some look different ? Sure. And still. . .
"Beware of appearances" ?
That'll do.

Glad you liked us, Mannequin

Aural caress...
This just wraps around all my senses and snuggles in for a warm embrace... it is not a static piece, but a warm active peace, I like it!

Well done Bernard, Linda, and upcoming 3rd... thank you for the piece of peace!

Well, to me it'd be more the flavor
of aloneness than loneliness.

this has a lovely off-the-cuff feeling. Like a simultaneous improvisation. How much of it was scripted? It's very nice to listen to.

Boundless said 3543 days ago (December 3rd, 2009)
Hey Vic
Only the main theme was orchestrated - which simply meant that I asked Linda to follow the melody implied in the picking. Then I found the 'bridge' chords over which she can improvise.

Glad you liked it and thanks
for coming by.

Well, I can see the point - with their constant use

certainly. . delivers.

enjoy
the nice dialog going on between the singing and the nice and sweet fingerpicking ! Nice use of harmonies, like how the singing goes into a nice duet with the harmonies and linda. It seems to really can a lot of steam as Linda really shows here wonderful high vocal range!

Way to go !

Boundless said 3540 days ago (December 6th, 2009)
Yes, Linda
sure has quite a vocal range. As for the piece itself, we just had a practice with the acoustic bass player and my ô my, it's really wonderful - he uses the bow for the theme, playing in a gentle way that makes harmonics come out of each note. I'd like to find a way or opportunity to record that - inshallah. . .

Glad you enjoyed us and thanks for stopping by.

scottphillips said 3531 days ago (December 15th, 2009)
Simple?
I disagree - I think this is deep and beautiful - the hardest stuff in the world to write. I can't wait to hear it with the arco bass, that will be a really nice add here - and maybe a little percussion? some light bells and stuff... Great job Mr.B

Boundless said 3531 days ago (December 15th, 2009)
Well, yes
What's that expression - 'deceptively simple' ? Something like that. Anyhow, I love those kind of things. It sounds simple, yet it's actually quite rich harmonically, and it is, in a way, the hardest thing to get to. Doesn't happen that often. Guess it's Grace.

Lost in serenity
Bonjour Bernard. This is gorgeous, both in the dance of your two vocals as well as your sensitive backing guitar. It stands nicely on its own, and yet I am also curious about what you will do with the bass. I can imagine it could be quite powerful.

Delightful tune!

Be well,
Doug

With the upright bass, it sounds fabulous. Hopefully
I get to do a fuller version eventually.

Beautiful...
I could just sense the beauty in this within a few seconds of listening. That says a lot. Really enjoyed it. I can imagine the bass would make this even better. But even as is it stands so well on it's own. Thanks for sharing it!
