Hella Gems | Original Music Blog


I'm in the process of moving, so I tried to make a song with just my computer since everything is packed away. I used ableton and two samples, one from Wolfgang - Not in Love Not True (drums) and one from Astrud Gilberto - Girl From Ipanema (vocals). I think the male vocals in the beginning are Carlos Jobim, the original writer of the song. Anyway, then I added some more drums that I made in ableton. Then I used the glitch plugin in ableton on both the samples and duplicated those versions of the sample so that at times I could play both the pure and glitched version each slightly more panned to one ear to give it some depth. By the way, I was able to get just the drums from Wolfgang because on their site they are having a remix contest, here's that if anyone's interested: http://www.hypnote.com/events.html

That's it, thanks

    Having done this so nicely I await your future efforts. The initial echo-repeats are a lush turn, and if you kept working on this I would keep developing them. The first voice is the inimitable one of João Gilberto, the first interpreter of bossa nova. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V9deMsQT Waiting for more hella nova.
