Putting feelers out for a possible 'K-Town choir' vibe on this song that Billy (sriracha) brilliantly arranged into a choral piece. I figured with stuff like the Christchurch shootings, and people uniting in response, this is a great time for this song. (The audio is the original song as an indication) :-)

I hear more choir and handclapping...with more music. But that's just me. You may even sneak a Rare Earth tune in there.

Have you seen all the choir parts in the sheet music of this project? The original song (this audio) was never intended to be a choir piece - that inspiration came later. Keen to have many voices join to be like a choir. Hand clapping could easily be uploaded as an idea if anyone's keen to hear how that would sound. :-) (By the way, what's Rare Earth?)

No, I have not read the parts yet. I just hear what I hear. Rare Earth is rare.

I've read them now. It sounds like the written parts are all in here. Yeah, that's not what I hear. Like I said before. I hear a choir and a lead. But that's just me.

The choral arrangement does use the majority of harmonies as were in the original song, however, there have been changes. Billy and I explored quite a few different options. The original song's main melody is one voice using vocal enhancer harmony parts (Boss VE-20) then further tweaked/added to by my sound engineer. I'm super keen to get lots more voices so it actually sounds like a choir. (The base loop is three voices, with two of them put through the VE-20. Gemini has added his vox so far, so that's starting to sound fuller.) BTW, Rare Earth being rare, I'm none the wiser. I have no idea what that means, lol.

I would not change this arrangement. Merely add to. Rare Earth pops up here once in a while.

The minor changes to the arrangement do not detract at all, and we believe they improve it. Something was required so we went with what inspired us the most. Copy re Rare Earth, I get it now!

It s really a great work. Sounds fantastic. I intended to join and struggled with the lower harmony yesterday. But after 2 hours i realized i d only done 20 of 200 bars so i had to give up. Hope you ll finish it.

Hey, thanks for the feedback, and thanks for giving it a go. Much appreciated. Though just to clarify if you mean the lower harmonies as in the base chant? If so, it's actually a loop. If you have recorded 20 bars that should be enough to loop? Oh, actually, I just realised you probably mean the lowest of the top three, in which case, yes, I can see why you'd bail, lol.

Yes, it was the lowest of the three. I'm now looking at the lyrics page and see that I have finished Verse 1 2 and nearly chorus 1. Maybe I'm not so far from the end as I thought. Maybe I'll take it up again later. Magnus

Actually, there is a lot of repetition with the chorus (it just has one variation in one place from memory) so yes, perhaps you are further along than you realised! Keen to hear it if you keep rolling with it, though totally understand if it doesn't happen. :-)
