Description
The old man was at an end his life fulfilled his legacy complete he was at peace...She came in a dream a beautiful spirit and whispered in his ear " Softer Than Silk" come with me...I will set you free...

Tim (Videoscore) posted this piece last week "Miles From Nowhere" as I listened to it on my ipod at work a melody came and I hummed it for days, eventually lyrics came to mind and I asked Tim if I could try to sing to his beautiful music.

I then sent the file to Ravens and with no guidance from me asked if she could do a back ground vocal that would give the feeling of the spirit visit to the man...

As usual she came up with this haunting but beautiful back ground...

I have always thought that end of life should be a peaceful and beautiful experience that was the motivation for this song...

My deep thanks to Tim for trusting me..and to Ravens for her help and guidance..

As you are no doubt aware I am not much of a singer but I did my best with my shaky voice

Is there actually
anything you couldn't do ? I'm amazed by the variety of your skills Dave. What a great song to start with, and you really can sing wonderful. Very strong, haunting lyrics. One of the most touching works I have heard lately.

Excellent!
Dani gave me a little preview last night so glad you posted it here Dave. Very good work by all of you on this and in content and mood, for me it was like a new, original work by Poe set to music. I liked your vocal work on this and the work by Dani and VS is superb too! Thanks again Dave!

Very Theatrical
The end of Life should always be so gentle... but seldom is.

Very much like a mood-setter from a theatrical musical. Reminded me somewhat of how Richard Harris might have done it. Haunting background vocals certainly help it along.

Nicely done.

Dreamy
Really nice. Mature, yet a sense of the youth whimsy, or a rejuvenated youth, at least. Even tho it is fairly full of clich├ęs, it has a freshness and truth to it that resonates. I love the sound of the speaker, the soft backing, Raven's dreamy vocals. Nice mix. Great collab.

Listened to this earlier
and didnt get a chance to comment. Really love the soft tender feel of the piano in this. Reminds me of a song I wrote, called "What does love entail" in some ways. I think your voice sounds great in this dave. dont sell yourself short. Ravens sounds angelic in this. Love the lyrics too. The word "silk" really fits, not only lyrically but the sound of the word too.

Softer Than Silk
Cool concept for a song. Hope you're right about end of life.... The lyric fits the music well, and the dramatic reading style fits as well. Dani's background vocals sound great.

Thank You
Everyone for listening and the nice comments, of course Dani is a good friend and collaborator I try not to ask her for much because everyone wants to work with her which says it all. Tim is a super fine New Age artist I am a huge fan of his he has a tender soul and it shows in his compositions.

Thanks again from all of us..

Awesome stuff
Really enjoyed this. Captivating from beginning to end. As Yves says, it seems there's nothing you can't do?!? Dani's work is superb as always and just adds that texture to the whole thing. Great track!
