Baby's In Black

(Lennon/MacCartney)

 

This is Hjörtur's fabulous version of this great Beatles song!

 

Long description:

 

Baby’s In Black (2015) was recorded by Hjörtur in Blöndal Studio in Malaga, Spain. The basic tracks were recorded on 21st July 2015 and the vocals and the brass on the 22nd July 2015. Mix and mastering was made the same day. All Instrument and vocals are by Hjörtur.

 

History (Source: Wikipedia)

"Baby in Black" performs at a 6/8 time signature with a moderate tempo that makes it sound like 3/4 (waltz-time). AMG described the song as "a love lament for a grieving girl that was perhaps more morose than any previous Beatles' song." Musicologist Alan W. Pollack notes that the song is relatively complex in format, with a refrain, bridge, and a guitar solo. He describes the song as having "mishmash" of sylistic elements—among them, "bluesy" chords and country music-inspired vocals.

 

1964 The Beatles Recording

"Baby's in Black" was originally recorded by the Beatles on 11 August 1964, and was the first song recorded for Beatles for Sale. Lennon and McCartney sang their vocal parts simultaneously through the same microphone. This was done at their own insistence in order to achieve a closer feel to the performance. McCartney was subsequently contacted by their music publisher in 1964 inquiring as to which melody line was the main tune (i.e. Paul's higher or John's lower melody). McCartney later said that he told the publisher they were both the main melody.

 

The Beatles live performances

They performed "Baby's in Black" live during their appearances from late 1964 until their last tour in 1966. McCartney said they introduced the song by saying, "'And now for something different.' ... We used to put that in there, and think, 'Well, they won't know quite what to make of this, but it's cool.' In 1996, a live version of "Baby's in Black" was released as a B-side to "Real Love", the second single from their Anthology project.

The sunrise mark the beginning - the beginning of a day, a new day. Where the days possibilities have not yet been confirmed. Here is a perfect start, romantic, melodic and relaxing music, with the piano as the main actor, accompanied by typical classical instruments. Enjoy the music.

 

From the artist:

I moved to Malaga in Spain in December 2012 and through the year 2013 and until now I have met a lot of wonderful people. This album is dedicated to you. You are my new beginning - you are my sunrise.

Love to you all,

Hjörtur

Relaxing and dreamy piano music

 

Long description:

The music is very relaxing an dreamy, inspired by the atmosphere of the movie "Beginners" (2010). The song titles are quotes from this movie. The piano is supported by classical instruments like violins, violas, cellos, oboe, double bass etc. played in a very romantic way.

 

From the artist:

I had just met a girl - a musical partner - and one night we were chatting on Facebook and she told me she was watching this really good movie, "Beginners" so I decided to get my hands on it and watch it too. I really loved the atmosphere in the move and it inspired to make this album "Piano Quotes" and to use quotes from the movie as titles for the songs.

 

I would like to send my thanks and respect to Mike Mills, the director and writer of this great movie.

 

I hope I have been able to pass on the feeling - and the way I felt when I watched the move - to you, the listener.

 

Love to you all,

Hjörtur

This is my first project under the sub name Cinema Now.

 

This is a pure electronic album… even the vocals are electronic made by "text to speech" on my Apple Mac Computer and then manipulated in my music program, Cubase Pro.

 

So the vocals are by "Alex", "Serena" and "Emily" - all Apple Mac Computer voices.

 

In particular, the song Sweet Soft Kisses guard's attention.

 

Love to you all,

Hjörtur
