Breaking the Rules (Rough Cut)

January 5, 2008 6:09 PM

Country/jazz. acapella. An open letter to Amy Winehouse. Super Mario Galaxy.

I came up with this while playing Super Mario Galax, encouraged by the fact that as you get more stars, more instruments come in on the lovely waltz played on the space station.

I recorded this on the default no-effects vocal setting on garageband with my yoga em-278 interview mike and converted to mp3 through itunes. Would be grateful for recording clue related advice.

That is one fantastic, soulful voice you have there, Grace. I want to hear a lot more. This is excellent.

Oh wow. How come you had never posted songs before? This is really, really nice.

I'm no recording master, so I don't have any advice in that respect, but please post more songs, I'd love to hear more stuff from you.

OH HELL this rules.

I kind of like the crappy mic; it sounds like a Lomax field recording.

Very nice voice.

Karlos is right - it does sound like a Lomax field recording.

Wow, I'm moved! I don't know about the recording aspects, but this sounds real to me. (Like you're in my living room-sweet!)
