Inspired by Marion's post in the Interesting things from the net thread, Krss proposed to me to perform together a rendition of A whole new world from Aladdin.

I recorded a piano base on which we both sang our parts; the splices were then craftily mixed by Krss who managed to perfectly balance the volumes and synchronise the voices.

We hope you'll like what you'll hear, even if we are not professional singers and musicians.

The result of our efforts is here. :smile:

hehe :)) i did enjoy that.
very nice.
and as you say.. in spite of your not being professional.. not just that i don't find it musically disturbing in any way.. it is actually a very pleasant cover version. :)
in adition, being acquainted with the "owners" of the voices is a special bonus.. :p

*thumbs up*

That is so charming to listen to. Both of you have put your heart into this, and it's an admirable example of how people miles away can still sing together!

(Love the piano playing, Santi.)

Half-light, purblind streams where moonlight washes over trees / Lustred with a glow, as if from pearls upon the throat
Where the night's kiss lights upon her; rose's rhapsodies, / Warm as oils, imbue this bliss-fed hour with trembling note
"Where-? And who-?" Her breath's unspoken soul is light's perdue
That, hidden, seeks the unseen with a sigh… "Ah, L'inconnu!"

Thank you, Marion. :smile: I don't know about Santi, but I had to sing it ten times before I was remotely satisfied.

Thank you, Almirena. :smile: I did have a lot of fun recording it. And it sounds as if we were in the same room! Also love the piano playing.

Thanks for all the nice compliments, folks. :smile:

And Krss, I have recorded my part a considerable number of times, too, before deciding that I am moreless happy with the result - which I actually never am, being a perfectionist. :wink:

You weren't bad either. You need to be more confident in your potential. :smile:

That was an interesting combination of accents. I really enjoyed it. :smile:

Now I feel like singing along too! I just don't have enough guts to post a clip of my singing voice.:tongue:

Haha, maybe if it was drowned out by the music, integrated with the male's voice (slightly louder than mine of course.):tongue:

Here we go, the whole CX's version of A Whole New World with everyone singing along. :grin:

:lol: Aww you were great. Just the confidence to show that you (and Santi) can sing really means a lot. And you are really good with that splicing stuff. :smile:

And I forgot to mention that Santi, beautiful piano playing. :nod:
