Bounce - remix


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
This is a remix of a song we originally posted in June '06. Got some great feedback in the forums (thanks Ichabod) & have been working on it since then. It would seem to be a simple proposition - mixing and mastering a poppy tune, but this has been the most difficult song I've ever worked on. If I didn't like it so much, I would have given up eons ago. There are 4 bass tracks (intro, main, rhythm & interlude), 8 vocal tracks, 3 drum tracks & 3 guitar tracks. I used Native Instruments Guitar Rig for everything.

Music by me, Lyrics & vocals by Amanda Chapman.

So this is where you been?
Fat sound. Very very tight and a damn fine rockin' tune. My only complaint- the song art is awfully small. ;)

Welcome back to the world of the semi-living!

Good composition, but...
Good composition, well laid-out..
Sounds a little squashed & over-wet, especially on the vox & drums - makes it a bit 80s/90s - a bit Prince meets Roxette - where it could easily be dragged into the 21st century by drying everything up & losing the excessive chorusing on some of the guitars.
The vocal's certainly good enough to survive drying, as is most of the rest of the instrumentation - very competent.

Maybe you could make more of that sudden ending. My thought about sudden endings is that they should sort of announce themselves just before they happen, so the listener doesn't just think something broke.

Don't get me wrong, that's some good work there, I like it.
Check out my latest song called Monday
