It doesn't pay to rush things

Post by folderol »

I started this in 2011, and finally got it to a state I'm reasonably happy with.
Apologies for the quality of the vocal recording. At the time I only had a very cheap microphone. I did consider re-recording it, then remembered the hours it took to get the phrasing and timing right.
Also, I had a problem with the guitar strums at the end. When playing it I could never get the timing right, so I tried synthesising it. That came out too 'mechanical'.
In a moment of, I don't know, madness? inspiration? I tried putting both together. That seemed to work :shock:

Anyway, I hope you will enjoy it.

I like what you did with the ending. Madness that works is relabeled as genius.

Hi!

Greatly enjoyed the message and the music! Thanks for that! :)

I actually like the flown-in lo-fi sound of the speech part personally.

This is quite likable. I think the mic you used adds a lot of character and contrasts nicely with the synths.

Oddly enough I found it rather reminiscent of this ancient and obscure Wings track (in a good way).
