My dear friends, this is a completely new mix of my tribute too Francis Lai, I released a week ago, after advices given to me by my good friends and other listeners, I remastered it, I wanto thank you all for your support and I hope it sounds now a lot better as I hoped it would do.
Unfortunately because of my health situation, I am not able to release as frequently as I would like too, and that might also be the reason I overlooked some things, but slowly I’m recovering.
My version of Francis Lai’s composition “Bilitis” was laying on the shelf for quit a long time, after my server crash I was forced to recover all my music again, and this one wasn’t completely finished yet, so while it didn’t need to much work, I thought I complete it now and release it for you all to enjoy.
My friends and I intent to redo this song again with a real orchestra and replace all synth sounds for real orchestral and choir sounds, and make it longer, we’ll keep you posted.
With this version I just needed to proof myself I still could do it by myself too, slowly…..yes, and it did gave me the strength, confidence and motivation to continue, and that’s what matters a lot to me.
Having to move to a smaller studio recently, I was forced to get rid of some instruments, and I also found my old Elka synth, and I just needed to play it again with this awesome sounds, so I started recording analog again as the old days, and I combined it with my orchestral sounds, and that's what you're hearing now.
Of course I hope you’ll all enjoy my version of “Bilitis”, and I promises you all I’ll continue with new originals as well as soon as possible…., I appreciate your comments and critics cause it helps me to develop.
