Daniel Shea – Quicksand

I remember when we used more than just you and me

You told me that we would be more than just another day dream

Still I’m here waiting for you, all your friends call me blue because I won’t give up on you

Here I stand just another girl caught up in your quicksand but I won’t give up on you

Your just a boy caught up in your mind just give me some time I know that you’ll find that it’s you’ll miss me

Your just a boy caught up in your mind just give me some time I know that you’ll find that it’s you’ll miss me

I remember when we used more than just you and me

You told me that we would be more than just another day dream

Still I’m here waiting for you, all your friends call me blue because I won’t give up on you

Your just a boy caught up in your mind just give me some time I know that you’ll find that it’s you’ll miss me

Your just a boy caught up in your mind just give me some time I know that you’ll find that it’s you’ll miss me

Still I’m here waiting for you, all your friends call me blue because I won’t give up on you

Here I stand just another girl caught up in your quicksand but I won’t give up on you

Your just a boy caught up in your mind just give me some time I know that you’ll find that it’s you’ll miss me

Your just a boy caught up in your mind just give me some time I know that you’ll find that it’s you’ll miss me

Armor

This song was originally suppose to be a piano song but I felt like it would be a little too intense so here is a techno version of it. I also discovered that this song sounds amazing on the Ukelele, but that version will be out much later.

I realize that it needs some backup vocals and harmonizing, but here’s my song “Armor”, enjoy!

 

Lyrics:

Been burned by the fire

Too many times to count

It has not been my desire

To bring these thick brick walls down

But you-ooo

Could not believe my eyes

You caught me by surprise

And you-oo

I don’t know I guess I like you

There’s so much second guessing,

Can’t make up my mind, running out of time

But I know meeting you was a blessing

Want you in my life, but don’t have to call you mine

Oh you-ooo

Could not believe my eyes

Most beautiful thing in sight

And you-ooo

I’m bringing this wall down for you

So I

I lay

My armor down

Down (x2)

Down(x3)

Lay my

Down (x3)

Promised myself you could not complete me

But with your lips against mine, it sent chills down my spine

And pull me in closer, I gotta break free

No rain- Just sunshine, now I’m really walking the line

But you-oo

Can you believe the time

With you it seems to fly

And you-oo

Can’t help but to hold on to you

So I

I lay

My armor down

Down (x2)

Down(x3)

Lay my

Down (x3)

Susan’s Logic Final

So I change some stuff compare to my 1st and 2nd draft and it is a little long than my draft. I had some and little echo in my voice and I use EQ to help smooth my voice. The reading helped me through the process of automation, compression and EQ. In this piece there are serval different beats that are input into the song same thing as bass. I also added some shakers so it doesn’t sound too dull. This song is in Chinese

 

Here is the lyrics:

Intro:

你的世界會跟我的世界一樣嗎?
Will your world be the same as mine?
你看到的世界是什麼樣的世界?
What kind of world do you see?
現在我就來告訴你我看到的世界
Now let me tell you what I see in my world

Verse:

現在的世界好可怕
The world right now is scary
有戰爭有地震也有龍捲風
there is war, earthquakes and tornados
看什麼樣的世界請你告訴我
What kind of world do you want   let me know
我現在就告訴你
Right not I will tell you
我想要看到什麼樣的世界
What kind of world I would like to see

Chorus:

我看到的世界裡
In my world there is
有幸福有快樂
blessings happiness
沒有戰爭沒有災難
there is no war there is no disaster
要珍惜
be grateful
希望每天
Wishing everyday
都能和家人在一起
can be with the family togther
躺在草皮上 看星星
laying on the grass looking at the stars

我看到的世界裡
In my world there is
有幸福有快樂
blessings happiness
沒有戰爭沒有災難
there is no war there is no disaster
要珍惜
be grateful
希望每天
Wishing everyday
都能和家人在一起
can be with the family togther
躺在草皮上 看星星
laying on the grass looking at the stars

Last Verse:

不要因為自己很有錢就可以浪費
Don’t waste because you are rich
還有人比你可憐
There are people who are less fortunate than you
請你珍惜不要浪費
Please cherish and don’t waste

Logic Final -Small Hands Burning Big Trees

Well, I threw my ugly baby vocals to the world, and the world will appreciate them!

 

We were doomed, from the start

Set fire, to the trees

In search of riches, there was no hope to apease

And we filled the air with, fucking debris

Noxious and toxic our stupidity ran deep

Cause all they care about is money

No regard for others, they vote for the slaughter of my love

Her dress was vibrant green, now burnt and charred

Her lips once soft, now filled with plastic

If you abuse my love, she will kill you

She will cut off your tiny hands (2X)

And there’s nothing you can do but sit back and watch

 

I’m sittin here in ashes

Don’t know where the people have gone

Probably dead in a ditch somewhere

Blown up cause the nuke went long

Blood and guts on the pavement

Small hands did it again

Every single tree in flames

Aint nobody but me to complain

Better off we feel the pain

Maybe our children will learn to sustain

But probably not cause small hands

Oh he reigns he reigns

 

Elias Ingea – Logic Final

Most of you heard this already on Thursday. I just forgot to post the draft. I was going to make the changes that you guys suggested but I thought it wouldn’t be fair to others that had already made submissions.

Overall I am using a few loops however, I do have 4+ instruments/audio tracks and a vocal track, which I thought was the requirment.

Logic Final – Sam Trudeau – Dryads

Lyrics:

Dark thoughts

Empty

My mind

Too far

Why can’t I see past this

Dream state

I’m in

Long gone

Too far

How did I get here?

Two days

Where did

Time go

For me

I thought I was no more

Fazed out

Concerned

My mind

Is gone

This has to end some time

Where did you run to when

They surrounded you?

They’re all around me now

Dryads in my mind space

Just one

It won’t

Hurt you

At all

That’s what they told me

My mind

Racing

No thoughts

Stagnant

Is this what people do?

Dry mouth

Cold hands

Can’t see

Old pains

When will this all end?

No more

I can’t

Too far

Go back

This is where I go

Brian-Logic Project Final

Surprisingly, I think I really like my voice in this and it is funny because I am not a fan of hearing my own voice. For this project, I learned how to play the piano just a tad bit (I even played keys while singing at the same time for fun). I really wanted this song to be simple, calm and happy, so I wanted to keep it as acoustic as possible. Speaking of which, I had to practice the guitar mad hard because my rhythm at the beginning was so bad until I played my tune a thousand times and cleaned up the recording. Because of the animation, my two main tracks were cut off at the top but if you really want me to prove that I played, hit me up directly haha.

Overall I really enjoyed making this project, I enjoyed using the apple loops, but also inputting my own bass, claps, and fades to enhance the song! The reading has helped me to understand the importance of EQ,Automations, and all the other tools. They can really change the feel of the song and take out unwanted noises. I also learned the importance of doubling, instead of having one track of something, if you double it, you will get a fuller sound which can lead to a better overall sound for the song. All requirements have been met!

Logic Final

My final draft of the Logic song. I’ve extended the two sections I had, changed up some of the melodies, threw on some short and sweet intro vocals, and added some more instruments as well as an outro. The readings helped me get comfortable using automations like volume edits and panning, keeping my tracks organized and labeled, adding effects like reverb, doubling parts, and changing EQ. Enjoy!

Victoria Beasley- Logic Final: Whishes

This is the final version of my logic project. I had a lot of fun making this and used a lot of knowledge from the readings about reverb, EQ, and frequencies to finish mixing and for the audio automation. I’ve finished and extended the chorus of the song, as well as adding an outro thanks to suggestions from members of the class, and I couldn’t be happier with the way it turned out!
