Post by vicky » Mon Jul 14, 2008 8:20 am

hey there everyone.....I thought I'd try something new and approach a Chill with vocals (it's a first)....any words of wisdom or suggestions? is this even a song?I know your nameSaw it in the lightYour name is the same as mine,and all the other lights outside.You know my nameFound it on a ray in flightMy name is the same as yours,and all the other rays in sight.We are sands, drops, millions of pieces,named the same,Marked king and queen,Crowned as beings,all named the same yet changing.I know your nameSaw it in the lightYour name is the same as mine,and all the other lights outside.We are sands, drops, millions of pieces,named the same,Marked king and queen,Crowned as beings,all named the same yet changing.http://www.taximusic.com/song.php?song_ ... &stream=1I really appreciate you all vtbp

VickyWell..I did take a listen....The Vox are too far back for me to be really fair about this to ya....Music takes many different shapes & forms.....And of course in todays world there are many, many, more genres.....My advice..........DO THE KIND OF MUSIC THAT MAKES YOU HAPPY....If it works & people dig it fine, if not move on..........That's how you find & RE-FINE your soundLater

Heya Vicky... I wouldn't really call this chill.... with the dissonant tones and rhythmic shifts, it doesn't really have that same feel as what I think of as your standard 'chill' music. I might call it experimental electronica with a sci-fi twist though It's interesting, and if this is for you, then I'm all for it. I just don't know how many listings you're going to find that this piece would fit.Hope that helps you find your way a little in uncharted waters...

This might not hit the mark (it's your creative genius gone a little mad ).Here's a 20-second snippet of a song called "Small Time Shot Away" from Massive Attack (100th Window CD). It's just one of many great "Chill" examples and alternatives but I've been using it as a reference. www.DaveWaltonMusic.com/PrivateArea/Sma ... nippet.mp3

hey there......thanks for taking a listen....Quote:.DO THE KIND OF MUSIC THAT MAKES YOU HAPPY....If it works & people dig it fine, if not move on..........That's how you find & RE-FINE your sound Steve I pretty much do the music that makes me happy....just trying to do more so I'm not watching so much TV.... Zoom...thanks....I wrote it for the listing due today, all the while knowing it's just a start....also I like to submit to listings that are looking for "unique' because I tend to get more forwards....the vocals in Zero 7 are way under the music, so that was my thinking..Dave thanks....I modeled after Zero 7 which has quite a different sound than Massive Attack.....I get what you're saying..."not nailing the genre"....Thanks for the thoughts....anything specific to hit the CHILL?vtbp

I believe frodo is in the ballpark, the "chill" genre references the rave experience, specifically the tendency of ecstasy to raise the body temperature to dangerous levels, requiring special "chill-out" rooms. IMO, that is the genesis of the chillout form.
