I’d this just for me?

I don’t do either of these. Though I did excessively swear at a piper once.

I think I'm partly responsible for the bagpipes ban. Not that I ever used them, I think I just mentioned in passing that I *may* use them.

The threat was sufficient to warrant pre-emptive measures.

And to be clear: my Irish kin are also guilty of flaunting the occasional bagpipe. Disgusting behaviour.

Here is my contribution to the July 2019 Basschat Composition Challenge, inspired by a picture chosen by the previous winner: myself..!
It may be apparent that there is a definite Chorale element to this merry opus; after all, that's what the picture shows us, with the added bonus of featuring Our Daughter in the photo..!
A tapestry of sound, woven with wefts of many hues, mixing Philharmonik and other choirs with Kontakt backing singers, plus Alter Ego solo voices scanding lyrics of sorts (given below, just the same...). Not much profound poetry in there, I'm afraid, but 'interesting' interplays occur for brief moments, to my cloth ears at least. The only instrument is a Roland piano.
Each track has its own specific treatment, consisting of relevant Cockos compression and EQ, and occasional Neutrino polish. The whole is NY bussed, then Ozoned into submission.
Thanks for listening, if you already have; if you're about to, enjoy.
Lyrics ...
Please sing this short text for me (now...)
Please I want this text to be sung
Sing this text for me (right...) now please
This short text is to be sung (now...)

I should be back in the saddle this month , the toon is done but the vocal is shyte , I suspect it shall remain so :D

i find it far harder to do these in the summer, the garden beckons , in fact all outdoors beckons , shutting the doors in the music room on myself doesn’t appeal the same as it does in the winter

I admire your dedication dude , I only recently found out why I have got a music room , apparently Mrs Lurks' grandad had a baby grand , an organ, a euphonium, and a few other instruments that escape me , all in the front parlor of the house, thats why I am allowed one xD  , though in honesty I didnt really seek permission , i just built it :D

 

Anyway  , enough distractions , Ive got five songs to learn for a wedding gig rehearsal tommorrow night !

 

I offer you      SOLO

Dedicated to 'The Groaners', those gravelly-voiced outcasts from Newton Road Junior School Choir, circa 1980.

Violin bass, electric saz, Hydrogen drums and, for a change, some words. I won't call them vocals. And nor should you.
