[personal profile] wintercreek posting in [community profile] starry_sea
This is sort of dreadfully late, coming a month after the discussion post for The Wounded Sky, but I was moving across the country when that discussion took place so perhaps I have an excuse.

I loved the songs in the book so much and I was raised not only on Trek but also on John Denver. When I saw [personal profile] melannen's request for a recording of "Enterprise, Starship" I couldn't resist making one.

I'd like to make another - I have a crazy idea about making a recording that sounds like a group sing, but so far it just sounds like two of me singing slightly out of tune with each other. *wry* If anyone's interested in that, please let me know!

I apologize for the clipping in a few places; I'm not working with real recording equipment, just Garage Band on my Mac. Credit is due to ProSound Studio Band for providing the karaoke track of "Calypso" I used; it is used without permission, but I have used it for its intended purpose and am not making any money off the use.

Enterprise, Starship, as recorded by [personal profile] wintercreek.

I love you *forever*!

This was amazing and brilliant. Thank you so much!

(What would be involved in doing a group sing? Everybody recording their voice against the recording, and then sending in the tracks, something along the lines of Playing for Change? I mean, I still can't carry a tune, but doing that as a group thing would be amazing.)

...okay, I tried. (*soooo* bad.)

My three best takes out of manymany:

Weirdly high-pitched!
Weirdly low-pitched!
Wavering between the two!

(I also tried layering all three over yours in Audacity just for fun - you mostly drown me out, so it sounds not-half-bad. :D

If you're still interested in doing this, please to make a top-level post about it! The more voices hiding mine, the better. (And feel free to use me as an example. I taped my singing voice, I am resigned to humiliation. :P I can offer to do format conversions - even from tapes/etc - if you want.)

Do you mind if I re-host the original on my webspace to link in the source post (and maybe other places, with credit?)

Wow, this is amazing.

Thanks so much!

We should totally do a group thing if possible.
