View Full Version : An original - "Inside"
08-29-2004, 10:45 PM
Yesterday I did something VERY exciting - I somehow managed, having moved around computer equipment and furniture for hours and having constructed a make-shoft mic stand using a sock, some hairclips and a leather shoelace (I kid you not!! XD) to record an acoustic piano/vocal song I'd been waiting to record.
So! I share I share.

(and the lyrics: http://destiny-hikari.net/songlyrics.htm#INSIDE)
Any comments? ^^; Haven't checked the mixing or levels on any other speaker systems so apologies if too quiet/loud/reverby/something else wrong.
I really want to make a rock version too, but I'm not that good at writing for the generic rock band, so oh well. ONE day. O.o Maybe. Anyway. Also, apologies for any wacky notes on piano. I don't think there are any obvious wrong notes. *Hopes* :)
this is great!!!! okay i'm making a folder just for you. How long have you been singing?

...Eep! ^.^;; Whee thank you very much!
I've been singing.. um, well, I'm starting lessons next month (YAY!) finally, even though I can't actually afford them *cringe* curse student budget... but I've been attempting to teach myself as I go along up until now. And I am better than I used to be, though still can't wait for lessons. Yessss.

I'm VERY impressed... Mixing was very good, and the piano playing was brilliant and I love the harmony! You are increadibly talented, and if you don't keep writing such pretty songs, I will hunt you down.
There is only one thing I would advise you. Make sure you're supporting your notes properly.

Wow... I'm surrounded with such talented people! Makes it soo neat listening to everyone's work ^__^ Then again... makes me cringe when I hear my work lol BUt great work Nevelinde! ^__^ Sooo purrty!!! Me likes celtic like songs *nods nods* More please! I think you're gonna stay in my hard drive too ^^ Good luck with your voice lessons!

I'm simply impressed. There aren't nice enough words for me to say. Great job! I will look forward to hearing more of you:)

That was beautiful :) But you already know what I think of your music! Hehe! I've downloaded a few of your other songs on your site, and my god, you should considering making a demo CD and just show it to some companies, cuz you do a really, REALLY nice job, from composition, to playing, to singing, and mixing! I'm VERY impressed....ganbare!!!! :)
08-31-2004, 11:33 AM
Thank you so much for the nice comments everybody ^.^ Glad you liked. *nod nod*
08-31-2004, 02:16 PM
Wow, that was really pretty! Wish I could do something like that...now I want to play piano...lol. Can't wait to hear more from you! ^^ Keep up the good work!
08-31-2004, 06:59 PM
Ah! I love your voice!
*steals Nevelinde's voice*
The song is absolutely beautiful.

There are so many good things about this song! ^.^ First thing we hear is the piano... well, I think it was well worth the trouble and the makeshift stand, it sounds so soft and expressive, and, well, REAL! And what with this and the BOA arrangement on your site, I'm really loving your piano arranging jobs. The backing vocals and your good old oohs and aahs are as good as usual, just background mostly but a couple particularly nice touches.
Most of all I think, I'm really impressed with your singing (main vocals)... You have indeed got better and better! You're very secure and controlled, and also (even better!) this song had some really strong and expressive bits to it. I can't wait to hear what happens after you take lessons, but I really think your teacher should be impressed with what you can do already.
And I'd read the lyrics already, but... the song has so much more power being sung like this. And the words are very well matched with the music, and... yeah.
*pokes anyone who doesn't know* Just by the by, this girl does have a whole site full of goodies such as this...
OMG, beautiful voice! , ^^ *runs in circles* Ahh! she has TaLeNt!
09-03-2004, 10:27 PM
OMG this is GOOD *__________*
this is what makes me wish my keyboard instructor didnt run off to a far far location >_o;; (i bet i scared her off o_o;; )
i love this song! *saves to compie* more song pweaaaaaaaaaaaaase~~~~ *glomps*
09-04-2004, 11:31 AM
Wheee thank you! ^_^ *multi-hugs*
Jesta! *glomp* You've used piano in your songs right? (At least I think you have! XD) How did you record it? Just curious because I think your recordings came out better. (Unless they weren't real piano O.o In which case those are some freakish good samples you have..!)
09-04-2004, 05:31 PM
...lol, well they must be freakishly good samples then! *blink* I didn't realise...
Seriously, the only times I've tried to record real piano it came out horrible with lots of hiss and mysterious crackling - also I usually can't go sixteen bars without messing up ^^ I just use soundfonts and stuff that came with Garageband... (could be that I suppose - maybe all my fiddling with it paid off!)
09-04-2004, 06:13 PM
I LOVE the piano part! It's so pwetty! I"m keeping this! Don't take it down yet, so I can dl it on the other comp! So beautiful! And... did you compose this? Write it? Or what?
Oh yeah, the singing was good too.
J/K! The singing was great! I used to think that I sang ok until I heard Chibikat, Mink, Hara, Kairi Li, and You!!! ^^
09-04-2004, 06:58 PM
Jesssta - Oh!! Hmmm, funny I always thought you recorded your piano parts. Especially in "Romantics", I swear I thought that was real. Oh well now I do feel a little silly :)
Sakura - Thanks! I did compose it. And I wrote the lyrics. And thank you muchly for your compliments on my singing, yay! Am glad nobody's ears have been offended (yet), humhum... ^.^
(But don't you dare put your singing down - I've heard you and you're very, very good! O.o)
09-04-2004, 07:15 PM
Like my friends would say after drinking Guiness Beer.. i thought that was BRILLIANT! This is why we have this forum section here, cause of people like ya'lls. Good stuff!
09-09-2004, 06:35 AM
Your music is getting so good. You really really should consider recording some of these onto a CD and sending them out.
The piano in this one is really great, I'm amazed you managed to get it recorded! Teh lyrics were already great, but the way they were sung really brought emotion across and it was just beautiful. T_T
09-10-2004, 09:04 PM
That was a very nice ballad. Loved your voice, it was very ethreal. You piano-playing was awesome. Nice job Helen :)
09-12-2004, 11:25 PM
Wow! I desperatley wish I could play piano ;_;
you have AMAZING talent! your voice is sooo pretty, you remind me of Amy Lee, A LOT. But it sounds more, folky then Amy Lee.. woooww.. VERY VERY nice!
09-19-2004, 01:23 AM
I loooove your voice!!! That was awesoe!!! I put it on a cd!!!
This is very pretty ^__^! I like it lots, x.x I found myself singing along to it at the end of the song...haha ^^;;. It's on repeat on my comp. now. I envy your lyric skills as well.
10-12-2004, 02:19 PM
This is a REALLY good song! It makes me want to do things!
One:Ask for music sheet from you! i would love to perform it at my school if you let me!
Two: This is going straight to my Ipod! I love it!
So is music sheet possible? I can't really play, but i can get accompliment at school.
have you ever thought of gettting a record deal? More young people should listen to these instead of candy sugar pop.
10-12-2004, 10:31 PM
One:Ask for music sheet from you! i would love to perform it at my school if you let me!
No way! I wanted to do that too! XDDD
10-13-2004, 07:40 AM
Wowsirs! X_x To think I missed this thread... You are really something! This is such a beautiful song, the type of song that would compliment a sentimental film scene almost perfectly. Terrific job! You are VERY talented.
10-13-2004, 11:04 PM
08-30-2005, 08:19 AM
Wow, that was incredible! I really loved listening to this song, your voice was excellent, and I really felt the song. Very nicely done! I actually heard more songs from your website, and they were just as awesome. It's good to see you're persuing your dream ;-)
08-30-2005, 11:12 AM
O.O Wow..This song had to be one of the truly emotional songs I've ever heard.
It's pretty rare for me to feel that certain way for a song. Your preformance was superb, I don't think I heard any imperfection in this piece at all. What I loved is how you created a spirit in this song, as if it was a living being. Very moving piece! Loved every bit of it. You do sound alot like Amy Lee with that amazing angelic, mysterious yet beautiful voice with such emotion to your voice.
Please sing more!!
08-31-2005, 08:10 PM
Really enjoyed that! Beautifully sung!
08-31-2005, 08:51 PM
i wish i could think of something better to say than "this is awesome".. but i'm sort of awestruck.
it's beautiful. keep doing more of this.
also, i live in england too. rockin'.
09-09-2005, 08:49 PM
It was a dreamy beautiful voice :-)
09-10-2005, 04:59 AM
HOW DID I MISS THIS?!
THIS IS AMAZING!
09-10-2005, 08:46 AM
yeah... I kinda had to revive a really old post, but I just had too, it was a beautiful song. Yeah, after hearing sooo much of Hara's and Priss's songs, I ran into hers. And man, her site is awesome, ESPECIALLY the music.
09-12-2005, 04:44 AM
Your song is really beautiful... wow. I just don't understand how people can sing AND play the piano at the same time (to me, it's like simultaneously patting your head and rubbing your tummy, only a lot harder)
I'm so so jealous omg.
