Day 186(6 days late): Baby Baby Redux

Posted by annagrace under Days 101-200

In honor of the fact that I’ve made it halfway through this 365 project , I thought I’d go back to the beginning with another rendition of Baby Baby by Amy Grant! You may recall that my first post ever on my birthday was a techno version of the song! Well, I decided to take the same song and change the effects a bit!

I first completely redid the drum beats and replaced them with some that weren’t so club-like. Then I played around with the effects on the piano parts a bit and change the “zapper” noise from the first version to a congo groove. Finally, I recorded the vocal part and did a little “epic diva” effect on it! :)

I sort of botched the end part, but it’s all good! And I realized just now after watching the video that my versions are quite a bit faster, but I went by the tempo it said on the sheet music. I had fun recreating that first post and think I may do one more version of it towards the end of the project! :mrgreen:

Day 1: Baby Baby Techno Remix

Posted by annagrace under Days 1-100

Today’s the day! After much preparation, it is finally time to start my 365 project! Here we go!

Seeing as today is my birthday, I am in a sort of giddy mood, so this post definitely reflects that! The other day I was in Mckay Used Books and came across the piano and vocal part to Amy Grant’s Baby Baby for 25 cents. Anybody who knows me well knows that I LOVE 90′s music, and that Amy was one of my all time faves! :) So I of course had to purchase it. At any rate, I spent a couple ┬áhours (I know, I know… I broke my 90 min limit already…) a few days ago putting the piano part into Garage Band and then later adding sound effects and drums. Well, I had a blast and in just goofing off came up with this techno-ish version of the song that I think is hilarious and amazing! I’m sorry that you have to download it to play it… I’m trying to figure out another way and I’ll update this post when I know!

Now that I’ve got the main parts into Garage Band, I can easily go back and change all of the effects and what not very quickly (less than 90 min!), so I’m thinking there will probably be more iterations of this to come! Hope you enjoy me being goofy!

You compose eh? Sounds very interesting! What am I into? One of the hardest questions someone could ever ask me…I honestly do enjoy close to EVERYTHING, minus country. Born and raised in Nashville, too, I know… it’s sad. I was raised on mostly classic rock and folk. Lots of CSNY, Zeppelin, Bad Company, Fleetwood Mac, Dan Fogelberg, Jim Croce, Nick Drake, the list is longer than I care to admit. Other than that I’m a huge early 90′s fan. Pearl Jam, Pumpkins, Chili Peppers, 311, etc. I also listen to a lot of more chill stuff like The National, Iron & Wine, Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes, etc. How about you?

I grew up playing piano but I drifted away when I was in high school….Actually thinkin’ about getting back into it soon, but we’ll see. How about you?

So tell me about what you do….that sounds pretty amazing if you ask me. Look forward to hearing back from ya. :)
