FRANK AND FREE - Two new songs by german Mixcraft user

Post by johnrico2000 » Sun Sep 04, 2016 9:01 am

Hi folks,

I've got two new songs to show you.
Sorry, German vocals only, but maybe there are some German speaking people around here, too.

I used Mixcraft for recording and mixing, playing an an M-Audio Code 49 MIDI keyboard.
Music, lyrics and vocals are all done by me. Female support vocals in "ZeitGeist" are done by my girlfriend.

FRANK AND FREE - ZeitGeist:
A song using lyrics based on the famous German poet Goethe's play "Faust". I did an animated music video with cartoon characters for that (loosely resembling me and my girlfriend :-) ). The song uses Acoustica's free Nightlife synth a lot. Thanks for that one.

FRANK AND FREE - Amoklauf des Geistes:
With this song I tried to make a somewhat powerful and threatening feeling slow rap-kinda song. I think the vocal chorus is representing that very well. During the into I used a sample from a scene of the movie "Cyrano de Bergerac" (1990).

I would love to get some feedback, especially concerning the mix, since that is what I would like to improve on in the future songs.

Best wishes from Oldenburg, Germany,
Frank
