Title: Lacrimosa Homage Project
Post by: D. on June 01, 2012, 11:40:35
Hello!
I am a composer and pianist, fan of Lacrimosa, and I am creating a musical project that is an homage to Lacrimosa.
I am looking for someone to write lyrics (preferably in German), and to provide vocals
I already have 4 songs written, listen to this sample song:
Stille - Rainfall (Intro) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UxI_BLvzE7w#)

If anyone is interested send me a PM or email :)

Hi D. Great initiative :) The sample sounds really nice ... am curious for the rest in any case ^^
Where are you from?

Hi Kitty!
I am from Portugal, and I'm happy that you liked the intro  :)

Cool :) Yes, sounds very gentle and promising :) Why you want explicit German texts? Don't you wanna write your own ones?

I'm good with the instruments, but I'm not a good lyricist  :-[
I said German because I have a certain fascination with the sound of the language (many of my favorite bands are from Germany), and I think it would fit nicely for a project like this.
However I might try something in English or even in my native language, Portuguese, it might work.

 :) German is a great language indeed, specially for making music (to my opinion) It would be awesome though to hear some portugese on it, a language I don't recall hearing often actually... hope you'll find your guy or girl soon :) eager to hear your result :)

Why the hell I spent twenty minutes answering in German when there was the same topic in English :( FFFFFUUUUU-

Sorry :P
But you are right, that time might be gone, but still, I'm approaching this with a new twist, whilst taking inspirations from those (Sopor Aeternus is another good inspiration indeed)
I have more material written, but they still need vocals, I guess I'll start writing some lyrics in Portuguese, that will also add a unique flavor to the music.

Ho ho ho, you sound like one Russian musician who came here some years ago and was searching about singer for his musical project. And found her here by the way :D (a wink to Kitty)

That was what I was thinking but didn't dare to say :) I don't know you very well yet so ... but indeed, I think even if a homage project, I think it's necessary as Nikita said to stick to yourself and make it unique instead of a copy from something that already exists :) Portuguese would indeed make it more unique I think indeed :) and in the end everyone has inspiration sources which cannot be denied ;) in that case, I think seeing it's a homage, it's only clear it contains elements you picked up from it :) as already said, am eager to find out more about your project when you're a bit further :)

Nik hihihi, a bit of a lazy singer you got yourself there  ;D but I'm non-stop thinking the same ever since I saw his call for a singer here :)

@Kitty
But I remeeeeeeeeeeeember when we were young (c) :)

@D.
So please more about the project. What are you gonna do in this project? you want only to find a singer and lyricswriter? or maybe to make something bigger and involve people from all the forum? You may know there are tons of talented musicians and even original composers.

(a little offtop question - have you been in France lately?)
Title: Antw:Lacrimosa Homage Project
Post by: D. on June 01, 2012, 15:14:06
Is that offtopic question for me? If nes, no, I've never been in France before, only in Germany and Spain, but I'd like to go there one day :)

About this project, if possible I would do everything myself, as I said, I already have most of it written and plenty of stuff recorded.
While I present this a Lacrimosa homage, it's something more, encompassing other influences (Snakeskin, Sopor Aeturnus, Das Ich, Einst├╝rzende Neubauten and others).
The only problem is that I'm not a great singer, however I may try.
I plan to record and publish a small EP (with 5 tracks) and see what kind of reaction I get from people.
If good, I may even try to gather some local musicians and make some gigs :)

Here's another song preview, to give better taste of what I'm cooking  ;)

Post by: Kitty on June 01, 2012, 15:42:22
eum ... I have simply one expression for this: WOW! ... I mean it... this sounds awesome! (even without vocals already... but I can hear they're in your mind) and yes, Snakeskin mmm Das Ich...mmm :) cool! Thanks for the teaser... now when are we able to buy this EP?  :D I'm pretty sure the reaction is going to be good :) so get yourself together with some locals ;)

Think the offtopic question was for you yes... he knows I've been in Paris lately ;)

Edit: I adoooooore your profile pic by the way!

Nik what do you mean by that :o:o:o ... I'm NOT old yet!!! hahaha :D

Thank you so much, you gave me more motivation yet to continue this  :D
Now I need to sort out the vocals (I need them as good as I imagine in my head), and hopefully I can get the EP out soon!

Hello, D. ! Even I can't help you, because I'm not a musician, I'd like to tell you how much I like the little fragments you've presented here! Impressing!

@D.
It was an offtop question for you. If not, that's good :)
So I liked the second one as well. Really fresh and nice one. A little tip maybe - please make more attention about keeping the balance in sounding of instruments.
Btw you work in Cubase or Nuendo, am I right?
Also how are things there in Portugal about the possibilities of releasing a non-commersial music?

@Zeake_Asakura
I work with Reaper, but I'm not very good yet at production. Right now I'm setting up a campaign in Indiegogo (a crowdfunding website), to help funding this project (mastering, cd printing, artwork and so on), that kind of website really help with indie releases :)

Well, here it is, now I hope I can gather some money for this.

You can help even if you don't contribute directly, just sharing the link with your friends and such is already a great help :)
I'm afraid that the project will remain unseen, there's so many other projects there on indiegogo :(

D, I totally loved your project!
I totally suck at writing music, though I live 24/7 with music roaming my mind.
I liked it so much I'd love to cooperate with you! I don't think I have  a  good singing voice but I'm pretty sure I could do some lyric writing. (Though I'll need some corrections, since my german writing is very basic).

Sounds very promising all D. :) when you're about to release the EP give a call, I'll be happy to share whatever I can :)

Yes, sure!
Thanks for the comments everyone!
And Arlishan, this weekend I just got a bit of inspiration and wrote all the lyrics, and I think I've got already a vocalist and someone who will do the mixing/mastering, so everything is going good :)

Lusha, try this link, it is not youtube, should work:
