most time my lyrics are poetic stuff … and in the last year i think about a new name of my/our music.
in german the word FREIDEUTER sounds like the german word for freebooter (pirates) “freiBeuter”.
the german word “deuter” means interpreter (“frei” means “free”) … so the direct translation in english is FREE INTERPRETER …
in german this name (FREIDEUTER) sounds like “prirate” but its more a matter of freeing from thought and feelings … and thought / feelings could be an ocean… and i’m livin in the north … so this name is a little play on words and so on and on
the song talks about light and dark times and in the refrain i talk about the freeing from these times by going to my own inner ocean of thoughts … far away from the real life … maybe something like this!
i started years ago with too wet vocals … it’s maybe a personal development of my own - a bit dryer now … too soft??? … don’t know your listen equipment but i know really softer mixes and masterings … maybe the mastering could be a little bit louder … at the time in the mastering studio i had no real opinion about the final mastering … too much mixing these past weekends and choas in my head … so maybe it could be better
Well, though it’s not my taste of music I have to say that it’s quiet well produced! It’s really compareable to Schiller&Heppner productions.
At least that’s what it reminded me of.
For my personal taste I think you shouldn’t mix the voices that loud.
Nothing agains the voices - the male one is even better than Heppners overvibrated voice
And there could be more chordal singings…I’d prefer some already at 0:40 “Den Weg wohin…” like you did at 0:55 . Maybe also with 3 instead of two voices.
But that’s only my personal taste, hey - at the end it’s clean and carefully produced. You hear that.
Not bad, Freideuter des Meeres
