about

I know Anne Wichmann aka „She’s excited“ from Soundcloud and it was always a pleasure to visit her cloud because of her unique and fresh approach to EDM. Sometimes I have called her style „intelligent EDM“, because she is fun of using more complicated song-structures than others paired with catchy melodies. In her own words: „She’s Excited! is a Brooklyn-based producer, singer and songwriter of indie electronic music, IDM and dark electronica“
Because I like her style I immediately decided to join, when I saw her Remix-Contest for her latest release „Love is round“. After listening to the whole EP I stopped at „New“, because I thought this track would call for some heavy guitars.
What I have done? Anne provided the basic vocal-stem and I have created a new arrangement around it, so the only original stem left from her are the vocals. I wanted to add the specific „Electronic Metal“-sound, which I have developed during the last months to the track. I created a new arrangement with a custom electronic Drum-Set, two brutal guitars, a „Dark strings“-pad, a heavily distorted Synth-bass and something like a electronic vibraphone. I have not touched the overall structure of the song, but I did some re-harmonizing and build up all instrumental tracks from scratch. Anne’s voice was mangled a bit going through Tape saturation, distortion and a Telephone-like EQ.

Vocals: Anne Wichmann

Instruments used:

Guitars: BC Rich Stealth „Chuck Schuldiner" tuned down to C
Drums: Samples of Teenage Engineering PO-12, Roland TR-707 and real Cymbals
Synths: All synths created with U-HE „Zebra"

Recording notes: I tuned my BC Rich down to C for this track, though it has just a Gibson-scale and 9-46 string-gauge and I was too lazy to restring another guitar. However it worked though the strings felt like rubber-bands.

lyrics

I don’t know what’s gonna come
But it’s ok

Ready for the New
Want to move without leaving
Want to run without fleeing
Scream without shouting
Want to ask without doubting

Longing for a fresh breeze
Both hands on the trapeze
Check flood control reservoir
Then count the stars
„Follow your avatar“, says my heart.

Ready for the New

I´m ready, candid and steady
Excited and happy
Wet grass beneath my feet
Leaving the concrete

Want to dive without drowning
Want to look without frowning
Bend without breaking
What a crazy undertaking

I don´t expect anything
But it’s ok

Longing for a fresh breeze
Swinging on the trapeze
Check flood control reservoir
Then count the stars
„Follow your avatar“, says my heart.

I´m ready, candid and steady
Excited and happy
Wet grass beneath my feet
Leaving the concrete

Ready for the New

I´m ready, candid and steady
Excited and happy
Made of black stains an sunbeams
Ready to change the scheme
