OK I started making a list of all the songs that I have worked on and think I can get to a reasonable standard within four months or so with a little work. It nearly gave me a heart attack!  :eek  

I thought I'd put the list up so that if anyone has any issues about me singing their work they can tell me before I spend eight hours arranging instrumental parts.... Also three of the poems belong to members that have left. Not sure where we stand on that? Also thought the writers might be interested as to where abouts I'd got to with their work?

Finished Songs (definetly will get recorded at some point):

Night at Alvang: But I'm playing with the idea of a trumpet part if I can find someone to play it/keyboard that sounds half decent!

Avash'aelia's Lament:Heh - my masterpiece! Schostakovich meets Kate Bush (yes yes I know I'm not as talented as either)....Odd String parts all over the place, creepy goblin noises from my two year old cousins fisher price keyboard. Love it. Took forever though!

Call of Surian? Am I gonna re-record this? Drogo was sutiably unimpressed and was rather adimant that it didn't go up. Makes me not wanna do it again.

Practically Finished (definetly will get recorded):
Minstral Mage: Working on the progression between the passages it still feels bitty. Need to do some work on the under parts, which take away from the irish folky feel of the violin and melody of the top.

Eyasha: I wrote that melody forever ago, so I just need to finish the under parts for the middle eight section.

As only I: Only guitar and vocal. But I might do what I did with Queen of the dead, and only add piano chords so that's easy!

Downess: I'm aiming at bluesy/jazzy piano cresendo, and falling somewhere short of all of them. I'll get there in the end I suspect!

Eshnean: What people are gonna think of me singing in Styrash I have no sodding idea! Vir said she was a sucker for harmony, so this at present consists simply of five vocal parts. Seeing as I'm a girl I may add some base. I haven't decided. Seeing as its short I may try and assemble a low quality recording so you can hear it and tell me what you think.

Night is deepning: Japaneesy style thing. Lots of little plinky plonky noises again from my cousins keyboard! All Hail Fisher Price!
Vocal Melody only (some of these will! get dropped):
Nocturne: I worked this out with the last lot I recorded, but for some reason I never got around to taking it to the recording studio to thrash out the deatils. I'll have a go at it and see...

Legacy: Member gone! Worth the time and the effort to get right?

Fellowship and Honesty: Member gone. The meter is giving me problems in places.

Merry Wren of the forest and Rover/Rambler. I'd love to do these, but I can't for the life of me get hold of the albums that Judy got the tunes from......Which is a shame cos I could listen and simply lift the arrangement from the track!

You're doing the Minstrel Mage?  (gasps for air and words)

I can't believe MY lyrics are gonna get RECORDED by the fabulously-voiced WREN!

(jumps up and down and does her swooning girly fan impersonation)

Whew... (takes deep breath and finishes reading)

Let me see if I can't record those other two pieces to a sound file and email them to you, Wren - at least you could hear the melody!  I will work on seeing if I can make that happen.  Or if you email me your snail-mail address, I could just slap the relevant CD tracks onto a cassette tape and stick it in an envelope - takes longer to get to you but better quality sound...  

my email is (still for the moment) masterbard@poetic.com.

hey, we got our best Santharian bards working together, so noone will complain! I'm looking forward to hearing them new songs :)
How are you doing btw, Wren? With my intership experience so far (4,5 weeks) I can better understand how hard you must be working and how little time you have left for yourself and us - once again - I admire you!

How long do we have to wait and suffer?

Ahhh... My MP3 player already rejoices in advance, though 4 months are quite a bit of time to wait;)

As for Call of Surian: This is a song I love very much (no idea what Drogo wanted, but Drogo isn't here for more than... uhmm... 1 1/2 years no, so...). So I personally would like to see that done with proper recording:D

Eshnean, the Styrásh song, sounds also very interesting for a change:D  I'm curious to hear something like this...

About the songs where the members are gone: Well, the people who contributed were happy to have the poems up on the site, so I'd assume they'd be even more happy to see a song recorded with these lyrics. However, we can try to contact them (if we can find an e-mail address somewhere, either at a team page or at the ezBoard profile) and get the final ok. But I guess if you have a nice melody for these poems, I think you should go for it, Wren:)

Hello everyone!

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.
