Constellations (Edizione Via Alitalia)

Recommended Posts

This is only my second song so far (I didn't feel like posting the first one here). I've completed it yesterday during Hearth's Warming Con which meant a whole lot of commuting between my hotel room and the venue and missing a couple of things including one interesting panel and BlackGryph0n's gig. But I still had to record the vocals.

So if you want to hear what someone who grew up in the 80s considers the 1980s sound, have a little Aviators cover.

2-track promo single on Pony.fm

Vocal version on Soundcloud

(Okay, "little" is relative, Aviators' original is already over 5:30, my cover is a smidge over 6:00.)

Sure, if you want to give me some.

A few words on a few things, though: I know I can't sing. At least not by today's standards (then again, every other synthpop singer couldn't sing back then). But someone had to sing it, and as someone with next to no name in this fandom, I didn't want to bother any of the better-known singers with this.

I tried to stick with/emulate what was possible in the first half of the 1980s. I've experienced the entirety of the 1980s myself, so I tried to stick closely to the period and not use anything obviously from the 21st century. That's also why there's neither auto-tune (unavailable in 1983) nor obvious pumping master compression (big no-no in 1983).

Ok, your vocals need to be turned up the mix. Even when you've got that soft beat, they're still pretty low. Also, I'd give your voice a little more of an airy feel since this piece is rather laid back. That's all I can really give you since this is a cover/remix.
