I'm submitting this a bit early because I want to meet the once a month deadline. Its a cover of Baba O'Riley by The Who and On the Run by Pink Floyd. The Radias had nice presets for both so I just did this one for fun.

Boy what a nice sound! Interesting from GO..!

Lots of imagination here, and neat sound in the voice!!! THAT could be developed a bit more... Thrilled with the inventiveness of this!!!

I found the break to new direction too abrupt , but it near works and I believe the idea is right ..., It just needed something to tie the two sections together at that point... A tune added in the last section would have been an improvement perhaps from the First section with the necessary modulation to help it fit well... and brought the needed tie-in to sound more like a complete composition with good transition, right now it is almost two songs in a way ...? ? ? (I know it was two that were used so really thats o.k... I DON'T KNOW THE SONGS you used in this so will go and find and listen Remember also I don't know the Redias at all either )

Good Work overall to me anyway...!!

I Enjoyed it and would LIKE to see this whole idea further refined and balanced!!!

Like it Very Much!!

My Regards John (Johnny. ellll) Very Happy Very Happy

Well, it is fun to imagine covering this true classic. And you nailed some of the parts, from what I can remember. Fun to listen to. You could actually take those classic sounds, sample them, and then do an electronica piece using them as percussion or some kind of looping thing over something original.

I like the second part much more than the first part. I'm just not too much of a fan of Baba O'Riley by The Who. But the second cover by Pink Floyd, while it may be a drastic change of pace, sounded really cool. I liked your use of panning and sound effects.

Nice job, again, just didn't like the first part as much.

Hi Charles, Well done on the sequencing and recording, I do love this type of music, and working out of the music (on both songs), must've taken awhile. I do remember seeing a programme on tv with Pete Townsend playing his VCS3 synth to show how he composed the Baba O'Reilly sequence, it was so cool.
One critism though the singing was slightly off key, with some practice I'm sure you will nail it no problem!

I also didn't realise we could do covers, I, myself won't be doing any covers but hey good work.

joe
