"Trusting in the Light" with Silvercord

poppsam wrote on 3/29/2009, 6:55 AM

Well, this song is a co-lab I did with a very talented musician named Geoff Nostrant aka Silvercord (here is his Myspace page: http://www.myspace.com/silvercordproject).
He had done an instrumental called "Haegum song" which I came up with a melody for and wrote the lyrics to (and did the singing, lol).
I really enjoyed this working proces and I hope you like the outcome;-)

Nice Vocals, in spite of the fact that the melody does not vary. I suppose, that´s the intention of the song.

Gr Ray.

Nice beautiful voice.

The track actually consists only of one basic melody.
I miss the bridge and the structure ,..... I`m missing the igniting moment.

TommyG and M.R.Michel:

I totally get what you mean and I will try and explain: Silvercord, who made this as an instrumental track, is into ethereal//space rock/dream pop/ambient music that don´t necessarily have the same structure as ordinary/normal songs like verses, chorus and a brigde. Since this track was already finished it was my job to come up with a melody and lyrics to the existing track.
You can hear the instrumental track here:

Sorry,... however I would not like to know,... where the track is ago.

That is no matter for me.
Your work is more important,..... however I finds the song personally too minimally.

very nice.i really enjoyed this song.i think this would be a good track to wrap up an album,or at least a certain part of an album.i also think that sometimes when people hear a song like this that they assume its going to be played alone rather than as a whole with other peices which then changes the way you hear it.am i making sense?very good music!

Sometimes a song don't need a verse-bridge-refrain structure. The whole Ambient genre has deliberated itself from those chains. Fantastic music!

Bonsoir ....

What I hear is in my ears and brains processed as "very good". (5*)

P.S. A song does not need always a refrain but in my imagination I can hear one and it would not hurt the track.

Very nice voice, it sounds a little bit mystic and spreads a wonderful mood.

Well done.

Greetings, Amanda

Nice Intro, I like it.

The usage of these "Uhuuhuuuu" vocals are confusing to me - even though I listend to it for the fourth time now. ;).

It's not really wrong, but the fact that it starts within the offbeat at 0:07, and the second and third "Uhuuuhuuu" is straight on the beat, beginning with a piano note...this is confusing to the audience.
Hmm....listening to it the sixth time I even have the feeling that your first "Uhuuhuuu" (the one in the offbeat) even isn't really in the offbeat - therefor it starts too late.

The vocals need some EQ finetuning....they sound a bit weak and get surpressed by the instrumental.

But very nice tune, indeed.

Well, at 2:05 it's getting a bit boring...there's no very catchy part, no changes, no refrain....this repeating "Trusting in the light" starts to be a little bit overused.

Nice one anyway. I'll rate it as a "good" one. ;)

Thank you so much for all your feedback and constructive critisism (sp?)! I really appreciate it and it makes me want to try and make the song better.
So thank you to everybody!!!

Wonderful atmosphere, very fashion, sound well done. Ciao da sandro 

Sandro Glavina is an italian composer, named L'Uomo e L'Ombra. The choice of the name derives from the title of the album "L'uomo e l'ombra" of the band "Abstract Music Nuova Esistenza", an experimental group founded by Sandro Glavina together with his friends in the mid-70s.

In the period 2009-2022, L'Uomo e L'Ombra has done 84 albums. The compositions of Sandro Glavina are partly influenced by progressive rock. Sandro has developed a personal style with many experimentations and actualizations. He offers music beyond borders by intertwining different styles in crossover with each other. Prog, psychedelia, classical, post-rock, jazz, pop are some of the influences that dissolve in ambient atmospheres, citations of contemporary music and minimalist nuances. Sandro Glavina aka L'Uomo e L'Ombra plays the music using VSTI synthesizers, keyboards and adds some loops. Sandro isn't a professional musician, composes and plays music just for fun, but his works reach a good outcome, pleasant to listen. L'UOMO E L'OMBRA
