Description
On Valentine's Day, michael2 posted an "Open Collaboration Idea" which he said was Hip Hop and hoped someone would spit over it (yecchh!) I liked it, downloaded a copy, dragged the mp3 into Garageband and, an hour or so later, sent michael a note and the result of my efforts. He seemed to like it and suggested I post it, which I have done, after a further couple of hours of tweaking. Hope you enjoy our collab. There may be other versions of his original.

Basically, I doubled michael's track to make it a decent length, after a minor edit to get them to flow together nicely. Then I added some Alchemy synth "Hudsucker" over both halves (panned slightly left), and some GB Steinway piano over the second half (panned slightly right), with a little delicate reverb.

If anyone would like to spit over this, go right ahead ;-)

Very nice...
has a movie feel to it....it could be "talked over" as well as ...er...spat on ,or whatever the hip thingy is....but it has an atmosph4ere ....slightly sinister and detective noir~ish.

Very atmospheric
Not sure about the genre, it's all too confusing these days. Trance-trip-hip-hop-dance-dub maybe?

Cheers

Well done Richard ... quite an enjoyable listen this morning. The acoustic piano gives that contrasting organic sound against the synth.

Weirdly
what I like about this is the crackles. I miss crackles. All told, you have an atmospheric piece. No idea what genre, and who cares? Good music is good music.

Myopia
I'm afraid I don't even know what a Hud is, much less a Hudsucker, but this certainly has plenty of imagination. A rich sound palate has been created and there's plenty of interest throughout. Atmospheric music.

Cool
Enjoyed the mood and vibe of the whole thing. I feel the piano part could have used a bit of bright reverb or delay. Nice collab.

Spit and polish
Nice work, Richard. You have waved some spit and polish (sic) over Michael's track and subtly given it a new sheen. Understated gem. Thanks, Peter.

beat
Nice backing. With some more burbles and such it could even be interesting enough to stand on its own.

Myopia
Ha-hah .. I was planning to send you a message that I had also developed a recording of Michael2's open collaboration piece .. but you beat me to it by tagging my recently posted version. It's interesting to hear the different directions you and I (and others) have taken the soundtrack.

Also, if I had heard the idea of "Myopia" before I wrote my "Grinding" version .. I probably would have gone with that idea for lyrical development. Having worn eyeglasses for near-sightedness since Third Grade .. it's a theme I can relate to : )
