Gaia's Tears Revised version with Whispered lyrics over Vocoder. See 3rd post on page 2.

Recommended Posts

Lyrics
City lights of the night leave me blinded
The Silence of these hills deafen me.
Grey Gull skims the White horses
Oystercatcher fails in its quest once more

Gaia sighs

Moon dreams fall upon the open sea
insipid thoughts slip through the mind fog
Tyrannical fools try to rule the world.
Destroying what they cannot have

Gaia cries

Long forgotten ocean creatures
Fall as polluted rain
Once Sleeping trees roar once more
A different canopy they do deploy

Gaia weeps

Mother earth gives to us and we do take
Thank you never do we say
Just abuse her and user her
Then complain when she takes her price

Gaia Weeps

Gaia weeps, on Mothers shoulders
Mother cries in Gaia’s arms


Thanks for the ears and time.

Hi Wookie

this is really great - enjoyed this immensely - what reverb are you using? - I particularly liked the reverb in the opening gong type sound

Cool

 Wookie , that was a Very creative and Highly interesting production. Very nice trippy lyrics.  I believe I would try a vocal "whisper" track on top of the vocoder with  your Raum Airy reverb. The printed lyrics were a big help but you "might" be able to whisper them.     I Really enjoyed it ..   mark

The bell sound is created using Voltage Modular from Cherry Audio's FM module. Then I used Native Instruments Raum reverb FX with a long regenerative tail. I then send a hint to the global reverb buss which has Overloud's Breverb hall preset to set it in the soundstage. 

Thanks for the ears and kind words.

Excellent. I really like this one Wookie.
Chimes at the beginning reminded me of church bells for a funeral. Seemed appropriate for subject.

"Then complain when she takes her price"   stood out to me. Nice way to express the issue.
I had trouble understanding the lyrics via vocoder. Maybe back it off or do what Mark suggested? But could just be me b/c of hearing loss at certain freqs.
You've inspired me to experiment with vocoders. Never done that before.

Interesting idea given a chance to get in the studio I might give it a try though I have another reverb in mind. 

Nice to know you enjoyed the trippy lyrics, as always your time, ears and comments are appreciated.

Interesting stuff!  I am glad you had the lyrics for this one.  I liked 'destroying what they cannot have.'

Thanks, the lyrics have been lurking for a couple of months, just had the best way to "sing"(sic) them. As is so often the case the simplest progression worked the best. 

Good to hear you found them interesting.

Wookiee,

Very cool song, have always been a fan of vocoder since first hearing it in Mr. Blue Sky back in the 70's.    I like how you have given it a modern twist.   Great listen.

 

Regards

Some kind of shimmer reverb by any chance?  That would work well with spoken words.

More cosmic & only recently released, thank you sir
