the blood & tears

#1 Post by zeppel » Wed Jul 23, 2003 5:01 pm

Check this out: know that oriental-sounding-woman sample steve uses in the blood & tears? Well, i was playing diablo II and on the harem levels on episode 2 the music has the same samples. but different pitch and arranjements of course! It's spooky.. i went "what the hell waht's vai's music doing here?" it's pretty cool.. go listen..

Is it because Steve used samples for his recording? So it may be a case of why is Game music on a Vai album? 8)

Another blast from the past unanswered thread getting the boswell treatment. :D

One of my favorite Vai tracks BTW

Steve used samples for those sequences.
Those samples came from a library available for anyone to use, as long as you credit the publisher.
Take a closer look at the credits of UZ, and you'll see them mentioned.

It's a sample taken from a sample CD set called 'Spirit of Asia'.

She's Indian and speaking/singing in Sanskrit. Some words I can make out, other I can't.

Anuj (who used to visit here regularly once said he could understand it all, but he never told us waht it was. Are you out there Anuj? Earth calling Anuj!

Hmmmm, I'm not sure the link is for the actual sample CD-I seem to remember it contained several CDs and was about £100. But it was something similar. Sample from it were also used by 'Enigma' and even Tangerine Dream.

Ha, ha, yes indeed I remember him! He and I were original members of the Vai Mailing list (now Yahoo Mailing list) which pre-dated this message board by a good few years. I think I have seen him post in in the last couple of years. He was still in Silicon Valley if I remember correctly. Were you on the original mailing list, Deyo? If so, remember Jere from Finland?

:shock: You must've been on the mailing list then, RAI! He disappeared after doing his National Service. I'd love to know what happened to him. He was a brilliant guitarist.

Well, I've sent his band a message via his My Space site, so with a bit of luck we might be able to persuade him to post here-even as a 16 year old boy, he had a maturity, sense of humour and insight well beyond his years. Great guy.
