Konchem Neeru from Donga Donga always enthralled me since I first heard it. So, of late, I am trying to perform the whole song (or as much as it is possible) live from a keyboard. I guess, it would be lot easier to do the live version using Ableton Live, but I want to do it from a hardware board (some how I feel it has more appeal this way). So using keyboard splits, layers, sustain pedals, volume pedals and all, I came up with the intro section so far. Of course, the intro is easier compared to the other sections in this song, but atleast it was a start. Please check out what I have so far:http://www.ent.ohiou.edu/~samkolli/tt_lq.wmv
If anybody is interested, we can share the responsibility to program the sounds etc. I have a motif es, so if you are a motif/es user, then we can easily exchange the sounds. If you have any other workstation, I think we can come up with some sort of solution/compromise, though at this stage, I have no idea how.
My basic idea to do the song is this: Most of the drum sounds, we can make them as one or two bars long samples and assign them to indiviudal keys, and we can trigger them on or off when and where they are required. Same with the one-shot sound fx, we can program them and sample them. And depending on the section of the song, we can program the individual patches to have all the sounds required for a section and use splits/layers/midi velocities to tirgger them in their respective places and times.
Of course, it would be tougher than it sounds to do the whole song and exactly the way it is, but we can make reasonable excuses. Please le me know if you have any ideas/tips. Or if you want to do any other song, we can try to tackle that one.
So, please let me know if anybody is interested.
