Salome w/R.Schletty


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Richard Schletty took the time out of his busy schedule to do this. I approached him to do this and he in my opinion succeeded my expectations. He not only added the lyrics, he added more of an authentic percussion with the beats and sounds of the hand drum and tambourine. Added as well all the singing & harmonies!

Anyway, I hope you all like it!

Thanks Richard

Rise in the desert
Bill: I can't tell you how I happy I am to hear you approve of the song. It all came together in one sitting. It is a special song for me, as it is for you. You did such a good job on it. It was easy to follow your inspired lead. Thank you for giving me the assignment. It is exactly the kind of writing and performance I want to pursue -- operas, oratorios, musicals and religious music videos!

Richard
I am thrilled that you did this for me. I know how much your faith means to you, or at least I have an idea. Plus, your family life dedication, theatrics. It was a no brainer asking you to do this. It really had these vacant spots just begging for someone like your self to do.

Thanks again Richard

Quite an epic-like song
Bill and Richard, this is so well done. Everything sounds so clear and distinct. Rich, your Biblical prose and edgy synth are an unusual mix... that really works. The piece has a solid feel of the Mid-eastern.

Kudos... great collab.

Stirring
Great use of voice! The guitar, bass and incidental accompaniment set a perfect mood. A very professional sounding recording.

Thanks

This is GREAT
I agree with previous comments, that it has such a professional sound. I love the guitar, the vocals, the "feel" - however you describe that. It's just WAY cool! Thanks

Thanks, magnatone. We just do what we feel like doing. It's that simple. See what technology hath wrought?
thetiler said 4173 days ago (February 14th, 2008)
Thanks I am so
glad that you put this in your favs. I know it is tough when doing a religious play to gain great popularity. It is tough, because religion can be such a delicate subject. But this story is so universal that it does help for more acceptance.

Thanks so much for your comments. I really think you are one of the great talents here at MJ. Though I know you have been here only a week or two. I really look forward to hearing more of your wonderful compositions. They are very exciting to hear.

Something else...
I came to check a tiler song, and

this is very different for Bill, but supplemented with great support I'd expect from Richard. Bill, always super guitar work, Richard - spontaneity beyond compare, fine job.

Tremendous Job!
instantly took me back to one of my favorite cinematic scenes in any movie, Christian or otherwise. In the movie "Jesus of Nazareth", they have the best scene of the dance of Salome, Harod's sweating face, and you can hear John the Baptist screaming out for repentance from the dungeon. Very powerful interpretation.

Peace,
Paul

One of the most
creative collab's I've heard. Tiler It's obvious that your great track was inspirational for Richard. You certainly picked the right man for the job.
I enjoyed this so much. Wonderful work Richard, and Tiler once again you capture that great guitar sound.

thanks to the both of you

I just want to thank again
Richard for doing this I am hearing again what Richard has done here.
I just want to express sincerely how much I appreciate Richard contribution here. I would post my fan icon with only the intent of your contribution Richard on this tune. But of course it may show my bias because I am a collaborator. So I won't post my icon but I know you were really busy in your business, plus the work on the play your doing for your church etc.
I have an idea what religious plays means to you, so really
thanks again Richard !

Hey now
Well, Tiler, I appreciate that. But you should know that I did a hurry-up job in this. I sat down in my chair about 11 PM and finished it at 4 AM. Stayed glued in the chair the whole time. I could have/should have spent many hours composing and revising worthy lyrics based strictly on Bible passages. Instead, I just went from memory, our brief e-mail exchanges, and 20 minutes of Googling "Salomé" a couple weeks ago. I hoped that maybe a spontaneous, a la prima approach would work. I tried to put myself in the gilded shoes of Herod Antipas. Salomé was his stepdaughter - the daughter of his wife Herodias. There are various accounts of the beheading of John the Baptist in both New Testament scripture and secular history (Jewish Antiquities by Flavius Josephus). I imagined a different scenario -- that Herod was remorseful as well as drawn to Jesus of Nazareth. This is probably far from historical truth, but it did give me the freedom to explore seduction, jealousy, mistrust, treachery and redemption by means of a soliloquy of just one character - Herod Antipas. It was a fun exercise in "real time", one-pass writing and recording.

P.S.
And I must reiterate what a wonderful job you did with the soundtrack, Bill. Really incredible. It is very rich and lyrical. I really felt the flow. I knew what you were after. People should know that you wrote your instrumental specifically for the story of Salome. It was not my idea, but I wholeheartly climbed on board.

I couldn't help adding a few percussive accents. My family won't have to wonder any more why I have a tambourine and ceramic drum collecting duct on my porch!
