Description
“Daddy’s Little Girl”
Words and Music by Richard 13.
Arrangement and Production by Daugrin

“Daddy’s Little Girl” (DLG) began life as
http://www.macjams.com/song/64989

Richard 13:
“This Producer’s Challenge has been so much fun and a tremendous learning experience. The original producer assigned to me couldn’t participate after all.

At the last minute, Daug stepped in to help. Frankly, I was a little apprehensive (and, I suspect Daug might have preferred another artist himself). However, after a slow start, I was dragged kicking and screaming into the musical 21st century.

Although he (Daug) warned me at the start what he was about to do to with my tune, I really didn’t understand until he’d sent me about the fourth or fifth mix. In the meantime, I was sending track after track of stuff, not knowing if it would fit, or if the timing was right or the cadence off...

The Daug was extremely patient, only calling me a one name throughout the process ;) putting up with my recalcitrance, misunderstanding, ignorance, and more, in an effort to make “Daddy’s Little Girl” the best tune he knows how to make. Now you get to be the judge. Thanks for sticking, man. All kudos are yours.”

Daug:
Jack asked me to help Richard, he had no producer, I agreed to do so on the condition Jack renounce Sock Monkeys forever… lol. Richard had been in the Daug House (DH). I had experience with him. I listen to your tunes if you comment…

We tried to decide what to do. Richard 13, thinking the original overlooked at MJ, suggested DLG for the challenge. I chose the one at the top of the “suggested list” he had offered…

Richard had never “manipulated” a sample before we made “DLG” together. When he says he couldn’t understand what I was doing, believe him! He created amazing vocals for this project. He also crafted the kick sounds that put “step” into the new DLG.

Richard had liked a picture he’d seen on the net. He stuck it on the original composition. He named it, “Daddy’s Little Girl.” The song had no meaning to him beyond that he liked the sounds and the picture. As you listen during our walk through this character’s relationship with his daughter, I ask a question of you, as you listen… was the daughter ever in the hospital room? It is in Richard’s character not to tell us.

If what you hear added to the original DLG is interesting to your ear, and you want details, ask… I bare sole responsibly for the overall concept, the “Hush a Bye” and choir devices, harmony and production.

this
is the most gripping disturbing and compelling piece I have heard on macjams and possibly anywhere.

the title, the picture, the song -- didn't even read the description and this ripped my heart out.

definitely evokes a strong emotional reaction I haven't cried this way in a long time

all in all -- stunning. nice work guys. I'd put a smiley but I just can't.

reimagining
It's become a whole nother piece! This sounds much more transparent than the original, and also the addition of the vocal samples makes it a bit more interesting.

Nice job, guys!

If she ever was
I'm quite sure he didn't mean to do it; he sounds like such a lovely man.

This is so far from the original as to almost be in a different challenge!
Thank you for the download of this sonic cloud.

Love,

Hello MoM
Thanks for being gracious and kind in your comments on our little tone poem.
The rules of this game suggest a "complete make over" a possibly, as long as the artist concerns.
I suggest this is what we accomplished...

Trippy essence
This is cool - I can only imagine the iterations on this. This is something you can hear on a Sock Monkey.... so one must stand firm in the face of adversarial sock monkey haters. Daug and Richard... who knew these guys could make such great music together...

This is
a major production like an act from a play. Just so long as only 12 of the 13 Richards were hurt in the process. A tour de force for James, a stretch for Richard and a success for you both, I think. Thanks.

The phrase, "sweet surrender" is a disturbing element. You found a key. There are several more.

may be...
the most true of all the productions in this challenge. I am envious of your opportunity to produce from the Title up as it were. Two very different songs. Great job gentlemen.... I am with Smoke and Dimm on this one "evil" and "disturbing" If this was the performance you wanted to have Richard give then your production skills are most certainly spot on.
Peace

Thanks Guy...
I am responsible for the production of this piece. As far as what it is, and what it means? This
is open to interpretation by each listener, this is the agreement between the artist and myself.
I agree, it is dark and there is great evil. Darkness and evil can be found in every relationship. Richard's work is powerful enough to allow you to visualize several possible understandings of this piece. The production "aides" the various possibilities, supporting all the paths equally.
Each path has keys you can use to open the door to that interpretation. The thing makes me cry and scares the hell out of me at the same time... and I made it.

Hello B
Of course, that is three synth basses and a buss with a filter and a ton of compression. As you listen closely, the bass "changes" as the tune progresses. A large portion of the evil being spoken of above is residing in this element.

I laughed, I cried...
did I die? I don't know. My song and I don't know what's happening in it. LOL. I haven't listened to many of the other PC tunes yet but I'm in for another wild ride if they morphed like this one did.
Thanks, Daug, for the adventure, and the education. Nothing turned out like I thought it might but that's what these challenges are for, right? To challenge, to stimulate, to cross-pollinate, to remove layers of mental ear wax, etc. It worked for me.

First timer ah? Well then, we specialize in the unusual. IMHO "totally different" is normal here.
Thanks for your kind comments, As Richard suggested earlier, effort was made so this was "seemless", if your into thinking about the geometry of the thing, it is "backless" as well... the "time" of this thing is warped...

Macabre makeover
I was just explaining to my son how superimposing kidsong on a dark soundbed is twice as scary as the dark soundbed. How, yes. Why, I don't claim to understand it. So I had a sense of what was coming from the start. Through masterful manipulations of the original, this is truly menacing. Impactful (another made-up word, but it suits).

Daugrin said 2306 days ago (February 2nd, 2011)
Hello Reg
I agree with you of course, there are other reasons "Hush a Bye" works. It is the organizing principal of the harmony and the root for the percussion track.
Inside the Daug House talk:
Some of the sounds in the percussion track come from the sample of Richard saying, "Hush".
"Hush a Bye" is pitched here to end on a tritone. As each new portion in the round section starts you get an "alt chord voicing" with devilish overtones. There are four of these instances, which set an interesting table for Richard to spin his tale. The "voices" are later sounded in subsequent "key" points in the composition. If you can explain "conceptual continuity" to your son, it may be time for him to learn the real important stuff...lol
Thanks for the listen, I appreciate you taking the time to comment and glad this piece could be used as a tool to teach...

Love the filtered (?) bass bubbling at the start while the rest seems to swirl around. Crisp clean production here. You did your job well! Promotion to superproducer awaits!
Daugrin said 2305 days ago (February 3rd, 2011)
Hello Ed!
The filter was shaped to diminish the upper mids. The combination gave us a strong wet "slurp". This is a cousin of a lot of the bass work on BBQ. "Wake Up Call" has a variant of this sound. Joachim is actually to blame for this, he makes fun of my bass synth voices...lol

Daugrin said 2305 days ago (February 3rd, 2011)
Good Call! Teamwork!
Richard and I build this one together. He had to trust me...
He didn't understand what I was doing... this can be a problem: the "tenderfoot" effect.
Example: There is a sound he calls, "the truck backing up warning alarm" that just sets his teeth on edge. That track is submerged in the mix but appears at key moments. I could never explain to Richard how I made the "sound" or what it's function meant. He has no background for that... He wanted it removed around mix 6, when it was very audible. As the process of making DLG ground on, he perhaps gave up complaining about that sound, and perhaps came to "hear" it as a small but very important part in the harmony.
I am not certain, but the thing survived his threat to cut it, probably 'cos I out ranked him! Richard's help in the mix was important, he suggested many tweeks, his ears just needed to get comfortable with a different tonal pallet...

I've let it go 'round in my head for a bit. Something of Frank Zappa here I think, maybe around the time of Lumpy Gravy - yes that's it and We're only in it for the money. Very dark around the edges, a bit like walking through a dream. Great sound - and very enjoyable.
