a new one, "Lost Dream"

Recommended Posts

https://soundcloud.com/bats-brew/lost-dream


i wrote this one some time back, as an instrumental.
i got the idea for the lyric, from a very strange dream i had,
and the music just seemed to fit.


this is a first mix,
curious to know if there are any translation issues, or mix ideas you might have.

bloody lovely Bats - sounds great mix-wise here. Harmonies are lush.

For the strange dreams, you might try not eating cheese before you go to bed. You're welcome.

This is one of your more exotic songs in a while.  This makes me think of the Far East and Nepalese Templeballs...  In short, I love it!

wow, thanks daryl!

this one is a bit of a stretch for me, because even tho i wrote it on guitar,

i started by learning and playing it on keys. my keys chops are rusty!

cheese.

good point , i was quite sure i had fondue that night.

:D

hey lynn!

exotic, eh?!

well, maybe i should start wearing snazzier clothes! heheh,

hey, thanks for listening, glad you dig this one, it's a bit of an experiment arrangement wise, maybe i'll head this route more often!

Hey Bats.  You have been experimenting a bit with the last couple of songs that you have posted.  To me this number has an almost cinematic feel to it.  Of course the performance, recording, mix, vocals, harmonies, etc. are great.  Coming from you they always are.  I particularly like the arrangement on this song. The alternating lyrical vocals interspersed with some really clever and skilled guitar work really grab ones attention and pulls them into this song.

Excellent work ---  I wish my dreams would produce stuff like this.

I wouldn't eat any templeballs before bed, Nepalese or what have you 😅

Great sing, great fractal, great lead guitar, and absolutely great vocals and vocal mixing with the bgv's . . . this is killer from top to bottom.

so nice of you to say those things, freddy J, 

this tune, was an instrumental i wrote some years back, 

but when the lyric came to me, it just fit this song.

i didn't really try to arrange it, it just kinda happened the way it is.

mr wookiee!

yes, sd3 on drums. i've decided to NOT select just one drum kit for the entire album's worth of tunes,

i'm hand selecting individual pieces of kit for each song,

and after the album is assembled, i MIGHT choose one kit to be my 'go-to' kit.

 

i've built 7 kits so far, each one is unique.

it takes some time, but if it's what i need to happen, so be it.

 

i'm just now starting to dive into the keyboards available (meaning, synths and key plugs),

there are so many in just the stock availability!

Only way to do it Bat, with so many drum pieces to choose from who would not want to design their own kit(s).
