Hip Hop Collaboration

August 16, 2008 8:29 PM

Would like to collaborate with someone who can do hip hop.

This the song I did about Aimee Semple McPherson and Orson Welles's "War of the Worlds". The section where the hip hop would begin would be just after the Orson Welles sample, in the last third of the music. That's what I hear in my head, but have no talent for it. Anyone feeling inspired please feel free to add your ideas. Thanks!

I like this piece, it's very mellow and soothing.. However I just don't really hear much of a place for rapping.. Maybe if it was aTricky-esque croak.. or an AWOL One-like freeform singspeak.. It needs a little but more of a beat to ride.. I'll try to see if I can think of something.. Do you have any particular themes you are looking for lyrically? Who is Aimee Semple McPherson, and how does the music apply to her if it's purely instrumental at this phase?

From Wikipedia: "Aimee Semple McPherson (October 9, 1890 – September 27, 1944), also known as "Sister Aimee" or "Sister," was a Canadian-born evangelist and media sensation in the 1920s and 1930s; she was also the founder of the Foursquare Church.[1] She was a pioneer in the use of modern media, especially radio, to create a form of religion that drew heavily on the appeal of popular entertainment."

I don't know how to describe the correlation with her and Welles, but it seemed that his Halloween prank and her tent meetings and radio broadcasts shared something. Part of it is the era. I'm not being very articulate and I apologize. I typically don't write lyrics. I guess I hear something rhythmic, but not really melodic.

Thanks for your interest and those two links. Hadn't heard them before.

OK, maybe this: I've already made a connection between Amie and Welles. How is that connected to what we experience today?
