    Talking Idea

    Hi all, I was trying some things out for my arrangement of O, come all ye faithful which I'm doing for the Christmas GPO II album. And one of the things, I tried was to record me doing the 4-part choir harmony.

    Listen! Btw. Don't laugh! I know, it's not one of my finest effort.

    So all of the sudden it came to me - Why don't we record ourselves and do the choir parts for each other?

    I'm a tenor - kind of obvious - So please let me know what you think of the idea, and tell us what voice you are.

    Btw. I'm singing the Icelandic translation of O, come all ye faithful. I also added GPO strings playing with the "choir".

    Also it's maybe also worth to mention, that I just used one of those cheap Creative mics (for MSN chatting ) to do this.
    Sincerely,
    Falcon1

    falc, ha ha ... I would leave it (ha ha he he) alone, hehehe. What did you do to the bass voice it sounds rather lethargic?
    So, how do you propose to set this up with other singers?

    Don't mind me ... I am on pain medication and it has me all F****** up.

    Styxx, heehe... didn't like my falsetto?

    Well I didn't quite make it do the bottom #f of the harmony so I sung the bass part little higher and did some pitch bending.

    Well, don't know yet. But we could put the choir harmony online with text in pdf documents and then every one of the choir would record him or herself at home and post one my (or Gary's) and then we would mix it together.

    Anyway I thought it were worth the risk of putting my head out there, to see if people thought this were good idea. So it appears that I'm now headless falcon.

    Why not connect via Skype or similar and do it in real time with a small app to record 'what you hear'. Might not be practical but it would be fun to try...
