Hi, i start with a note of caution to listeners
: this is only a demo and not a finished product by any means. For starters, the song is "sung" by a the very latest in virtual singers, vocaloid 2. And in addition, the mix is not up professional standards (I'm still learning, folks).
, I hope that people will listen and form some judgement about the music - does it work as a song ?
and - could you imagine it being successful in (eg. in a music theatre production) if I had the ability to produce a really professional recording of it ?
So I hope that people enjoy my piece "Dark Distant Memories". All the music is my own, but I took the lyrics from a sheet of music from the Victorian period that I found in a second hand shop in Wigtown, Scotland (I often use very old lyrics that are out of copyright as a starting point).
And finally, if anybody who has sound engineering skills wants to take the song further, then I'd be glad to send you the midi files.
and here it is:
