Song: Into Thy Heart

I had ‘Enya’ in mind as I worked on my bandmate (I-Ling aka MyVanillaWord) ccMixter stems. I wasn’t able to do something with her main vocals. So I toyed with her backing pells instead.

Here’s the remix titled “Into Thy Heart”:

I imported the track into my iPad (converted to AIFF) and then mucked around with the iPad’s GarageBand. Experimented with piano, orchestra strings and clean electric guitar layers. Utilised the automatic chords in the GB iPad app (I couldn’t have played them so precisely). Finally exported to my iMac and tweaked the mix with Logic Express.

“Be still, sad heart, and cease repining; Behind the clouds the sun is shining; Thy fate is the common fate of all, Into each life some rain must fall, Some days must be dark and dreary.”
