    Look at the Sun - Character Song -

    Post  Mooncrafter on Mon Jul 26, 2010 4:58 pm

    I have a character song all written out for Ariella, but I need help with the music since I am not musically inclined.

    Lyrics
    --
    Look at the Sun
    You might find a ray of Hope
    Look to the Moon
    You might find your one True Love
    Look for the Light
    And fulfill your Destiny

    Darkness is not easy to fight,
    and neither is Hope to kill
    If I have learned at least one right
    My Fate is mine to fulfill
    And although my eyes see no light
    My heart knows only free will

    Look at the Church
    You might find a sign of God
    Look to the lake
    You might find the Goddess there
    But in the Heart
    You will always find answers

    I have come too far to stop now
    and my heart knows what to do
    I don't need people to allow
    me to be to my heart, true
    This truth of life that I have found
    I will convey it to you

    Listen to me
    I will never stop singing
    Listen to me
    Not even Death could stop it
    Listen to me
    I've found my light, what of you?

    Look at the Sun
    You might find a ray of Hope
    Look at the Moon
    You might find your one True Love
    Look for your Light
    And you will find so much more
    --

    They're not the best ones I've ever written, but I'm still satisfied with them.

    Well i am currently analyzing some tracks i like to fetch some cool chord progression, so gonna be busy for a moment. If you have ideas of melody i can come up with the chords and let someone else do the arrangement.

    You gotta be more accurate on what music genre , mood you are targeting, if you have ideas of instrumentation it also helps.

    As agentJ said. If you can give more specifics, I might be able to help out with your project. I'm not all that good with VocaloidEditor, but I'm pretty good with FL Studio.

    It isn't a Vocaloid song, it's an UTAU song. Long as I'm given a MIDI file for the melody and harmonies I can make her sing.

    And I'm really no good at anything but making up the words and the song art. Sorry I can't be more specific... Other than I'd like for this to have a techno-sound to it. Like Euro-Trance maybe.

    Hmm. I'm pretty confident about my capabilities at arranging and composing the BGM for it. Moreover if what we're talking is Trance.

    Hmm... I'll see if I can make something, although I still need more specifics actually.

    Well, I could make a melody if someone offered to use Fl studio for the BGM.

    Thanks guys ;U;

    And uhh... I guess for more specifics... uuhhh.... My original plan was for it to have a "Just Be Friends" effect. The melody misleading the meaning of the lyrics. Like Melt being a sad song with an extremely upbeat melody.

    Yea, the lyrics turned out far more angry/forceful than I had intended, but we could decieve it by giving it a happy sound, something to dance to.

    Melt and Just Be Friends both have the melody decieving the listener as far as the lyrics go. That's something I really enjoyed about both songs and is something I'd like to apply to Ariella's first original song.

    After some mess up and mixing, i came up with this

    (http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=dyxpoy9adg5mx)
    copy paste link into your browser

    i dont think that will suit your song but at least i suggested something, i am not really used to compose from beats Neutral

    It is not finished though and not fully mixed (not gonna bother finishing it if you dont like the tune haha). Folder contain the mp3 sample, midi file, and the mp3 of the chord progression.

    I love the melody and such AgentJ, but I'm having difficulty figuring out which lyrics go where.

    Still working on mine... I hope it's okay if you have to wait for sometime. My real life is killing my free time pretty badly.

    Oh just for confirmation, so you want something like, up beat like Melt, but are actually something sad in it's lyrics?

    Umm, yes I know you did. What I mean is "complementing the lyric so it sounds twisted-ly happy while it's actually sad", not "Making a lyric that sounds sad" ^^

    Because if you haven't make the lyric already I wouldn't even try to make the melody and all XD
