BEAUTIFUL BEING (Extended Version)

Liner Notes: 

CTS: So, I'm bit behind with my collaboration commitments. I am in the process of rectifying said inequities. LadyRed had written a song (poem) called Beautiful Being. It translated to me as something personal; very intimate. I was immediately drawn to it. I had to let it sit in my creative space for a little while because I want to make sure I have fully realized what I hear from her writings. We've collaborated on a few tunes in the past. Here's another one to enjoy from her Crimson Badness...

Tech notes: I'm not liking this Shure SM7. I really have to boost the gains in order for it to pick my vocals. In the process, it's picking up crazy interference which might be from the computer.

How I did it:
DAW: Studio One Professional
Virtual Instruments: Cello, Rhodes
MIDI Controller: Alesis
Guitar: Squire with Reel ADT plugins for FX
Drum programming: Presonus sample collection (with added plugins from Waves
Vocals: me


I need your body In my bed
And hear your voice in my heard
I need 2 feel u beside me
And let your fingers guide me

U're my everything
And always have been
U R the most beautiful being that I've ever seen

Take me 2 places I've never been
Show me the passion from deep within
I love the way that U R 2 me
I want 2 show U love 2

U're my everything
And always have been
U R the most beautiful being that I've ever seen


U're my everything
And always have been
U R the most beautiful being that I've ever seen

2019 FAWM 50/90

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Beautifully produced (and arranged), lovely vocal befits a tender lyric. Great collab. Well done!

these full, elastic vocals have a slow, sensual give and take that express the physicality of the lyrics.

Beautiful song and collaboration. Brilliant lyrics, music, vocals, playing and demo. A delight and hypnotic to listen to. Gorgeous vocal harmonies.

. Soulfull performance. Very well expressing the emotions and passion in the lyrics.

I dig the elec piano run at 2:31. The elec piano period gives just enough without dominating, giving room for your vocals.
This whole thing is intimate and personal, mirroring those qualities from @LadyRed's poem/lyrics. The focus is on the words for the listener, which you delivery delicately.
My ears however are drawn to the music, and I really dig what you put together, from the drum pattern to the sounds used and the space and vibe you give this track.

Bravely minimal production, suits the lyric well. Love the octave vocals that move into harmonies later. Really nice build to the whole thing.
