gypsy song

By Q-Rosh on May 12, 2024 11:04 am

This is a little more quiet. almost a good night lullaby. I play guitar, clarinet and effectpedals. the voice comes from an old reel I found in the garbage. It must be as old as I am. there is a woman singing with an east german accent. It is a song about 3 gypsys. I could not spend a lot of time with this track, because I am on duty in the clinic this weekend.

It does have a calming lullaby type feel.  Good usage and recontextualization of the found voice.  It's neat that her performance can find a new life so many years later. 

Very nice, this has me feeling calm and at rest, I like the addition of the vocals, that is a great find, some nice space created from the effects.

Oh that first bass tone on the left oooof. Scuse me. *gets out of desk chair, goes to hardware store, buys hammock, installs hammock, waits for the night sky and starts track again*  That lovely high register repeating motif/melody that answers the bass is very lullaby dreamy feels.  Beautiful track and hope you are able to destress after work is done.

wow, this played on my heartstrings
thank you, Q-Rosh.
i'm floating

this is beautiful!

very soothing to the soul. nice textures all around the stereo field. thank you

wooow kinda haunting but lovely at the same time. really, really nice. someone's trash can be another's treasure heart

I like the usage of the found reel. It meshes perfectly in the track, and the fact that it's found makes it even more special. The track has a slight dream-like quality. The counterpoint that starts around 0:50 reminds me a little of a little bird, taking us into the country side in the distant past. This was a beautiful escape of my day.

Wow. The sounds blend wonderfully with the singing. So beautiful.

Are you in Germany, or you just happened to find a German recording? Just asking since my grandma was German.

I am from Germany, Mannheim. Here I find a lot of stuff people throw away.
Today I found a Vinyl Record with music from Finland on the street. I took it home and see what I can do with it……

I played clarinet what seems like many lifetimes ago (I stopped playing wind instruments after high school), great use of sample found out and about, love that.

Amazing! Would be interesting to hear what you'd do with that, for sure

so lovely and peaceful as it unfolds. a lullaby indeed. beginning of the song reminds me of early mogwai. keyboard arp flourishes that come in around 3:00 are a nice touch. beautiful
