Time Machine English/Japanese – HBD Eban!

So look time no blog! Annami is alive -mostly. I’m at school with time to kill before class , i mean I could do homework but no motivation and I am so sleepy so yeah. Procrastination always wins it seems.

Anyways I’m trying to get all these blog posts about my covers up and written. I’m slowly moving up the list. Very slowly it seems. Hopefully I’ll get it all done soon and maybe I can write some different content and upload some art work to here too^^ (if you didn’t know I’m studying art in college and I just got into my graphic design program for next year wooo!)

But on to the pressing matter at hand , lets talk about the linked cover above. This is the 2nd birthday cover I have ever made. I really love making presents for people who make me happy and my friend Eban certainly does. He is literally my best friend in the youtaite community. I mean we’ll only been friends for under a year , 8 months to be exact or close to that ahaha. I still remember the first time we talked through email it was fun! We are like the same person so of course something like this was bound to happen.

So I decided to do some good old 40mp , since my friend likes his music and I have always wanted to sing this song. There is something so very special about this song and I immediately fell in love with it. The english lyrics written by Lucy are always so poetic and really capture the essence of the songs so it was a pleasure to sing. Also this lyric arrangement made by Ashe (which he used in his own cover) was very interesting and it was fun to do though a bit tricky as well.

As far as singing goes I definitely don’t think its my best work. I was also rushing trying to get this done quickly , life was getting in the way as usual and I didn’t have much time to record or mix for this cover. I think I had a really strong main vocal line and it sounded great but the harmonies were pretty bad. They w ere a mess and all over the place which is why in the mix I tried to lower all the volumes and put effects on them to make them sound a bit better. It was a brave attempt but sadly I think ultimately will have to rerecord this cover and make it better.

I’m not sure what else to say except that my friend told me he got a bit teary eyed listening to this since no one has sung him anything before and I was his first friend in the community. Well anyways class is starting soon , have a great day guys and thanks for reading/listening.
