Competition entry (my first time singing!)

Just finished my entry into the monthly Basschat music competition:

Loading SoundCloud…


I went very much 'off piste' with this and did something very different to my usual wobbly electronic stuff.

Used a bunch of natural field recordings for the various water and wildlife noises. Also sampled a few toy instruments from Skol Jnr's collection (Baby Rattle ReFill coming soon…!). The very minimal bassline was recorded live; as are the vocals. In fact this is the first time I've ever recorded myself singing. It could also be the last O_o

Mixed on headphones (as always with me), so I'd be interested to know how it sound thru your own systems. Thanks!

That's a nice studio environment you've got! You did a good job, good luck with during the competition.

Nice job Patty, sounds very indie-movie-esque, with a chill mood and interesting vocals.
Speaking of vocals, for your first time, they're really good and sit well in the track, unlike those vox from a certain someone else on this board *whistles*.

The mosquito-loaded waterstream might be a bit too loud at the start and tend to cause some bladder-activity when you've had a few drinks already.

I thought that was the point? Not quite an emotional movement but close.

Being triggered by sounds of water to pee when loaded up with coffee and/or beer can be a very emotional movement thank you very much. Sometimes I cry.

You're not that bad. *moment of silence*

But I wasn't talking about you /whisper

The choice of sounds worked really well together. Thought your voice sounded fine. Wouldn't even have thought about it if you hadn't mentioned it.

Thanks for the words of encouragement, Dave! I doubt I'll be reaching for the mic on every track in future, but I might try singing a little more often if it suits the mood of the track (i.e. flat and melancholic, which seems to be my vocal style!).

Thanks Tony, good to know it sounds ok on other people's systems. It's always a risk mixing only on headphones, but I've got to know my cans quite well, which helps.

*NEWSFLASH*

Well, I won the competition! Cue fanfare, dancing Ewoks, etc.

Another minor victory for the Props community, chalked up in the annals of history (yeah, being extra careful how to spell that).

Me = happy :-D
