I shared this on the LAU mailing list, but I though why not here as well?
It's what all this is about, in the end.
So, here we go:http://mastoridis.co.uk/temp/linux/Anticipating.ogg
Anticipating a simple tune with a few challenges set.
1. To make a v simple chord progression interesting for 3 mins
2. To start the collaboration with Richard Miles. Richard is a colleague of mine and a science teacher. Last year he discovered his amazing talent for poetry and already wrote 15 samizdat (self-published) poetry books. I sent him the basic idea, and he returned the lyrics, basically;-]
3. To further learn the art of final production on Linux Audio. This time using the wonderful Linux DSP suite on AVLinux - particularly the Valve Compressor and the Graphic Eq while mastering. The vocals and bouzouki use the Linux DSP Reverb as well.
Recorded on Muse 1r3 (compiled from source), Ardour and a few additional plugins (gates and compressors)
Critical comments (deserved) and praises (undeserved) are welcomed.
