Relics XIII • voices
Almost three years ago I wrote the first version of “Voices” as a new year’s gift for my friends.
Although I liked the sampled vocals I used in it (“Voices of Passion” from East West Quantum Leap), I always hoped that I could record this piece one day with a real vocalist.
Then I met soprano Amethyste (USA) on Myspace and I loved her voice and music immediately.
When we started talking of doing something together this piece came to my mind again.
THe originial piece was written in a short time, and now I took the time to review and rearrange it. I also expanded the piece with an intro, and a short text to read by Artie Q.
Amethyste did a wonderful job singing all three voices I wrote for this piece. She really brings this music alive with lots of positive energy...

Amethyste released 3 CD's in collaboration with German composer Gunnar Spardel. They are now married and live in the USA.
Her fourth album is in production.
You can buy her music at CD Baby.

A short word of thanks:
Of course first of all to Amey, for your wonderful contribution to this song.
Also to my dear friends Artie Q (for lending his voice to the Relics project) and Henning Backhaus (for his valuable feedback on the mixing).
Music and lyrics composed and played by Jef De Corte • Aeronaut.
Soprano voice: Amethyste.
Spoken words: Artie Q.
