A new song from me called ‘Olga’. A little more mellow in style than some of my stuff.Olga 20-1-12.mp3
A little background.
The initial inspiration came from Schwa’s synth Olga, a few memories and some fiction. The track is not meant to be a ‘regular pop song’, but a more laid back type song that I know will not appeal to every one. I have to thank Ian for his input on the structure, even though he has very different ideas on presenting the song and we don’t agree on everything, I have implemented one or two suggestions in some kind of way. Thanks mate.
I’ve had one or two issues along the way already. One has been with the bass which shows up my poor technique and lack of practise. The other main issue has been placing the cymbals level wise. I have discovered that I don’t hear them very well in one ear so have had to resort to flipping left and right back and forth in order to get an idea on level. The hihat is deliberately a bit on the loud side than I would normally have it. I have also tried one or two other little things in the mix which I’ve not done before.
I would be grateful for any comments.
I should also add that this has been a vocal experiment too. I have deliberately not tried to ne a singer on this track, nor have I tried to ‘tune’ it all nicely rather than try to be a proper singer, which I am not.
