Marline Apolina / Sophia / The Bee

The Bee

If you like things that are not in a mould, then Marline Apolina's 'The Bee' might be for you. On the one hand it is good to hear something with no filters, no special effects, and a free flow...probably improvised... Then you wonder what would this piece be like if it were put through some controlled production? - The piano recorded in a studio with some allowance for adding parts on cello...or chimes and bells.. then a clean vocal where Marline can really make each section perfect...or just a little quieter at times so (to my taste anyway) the edge is taken of a bit. All said : I like this , I like it a lot!

The bee

This track is great ..the vocals need more attitude and control in range as well as key...the vocalist has the vocals that can be more powerful...over all this track is nicely arranged and could become a great hit...keep up the good work

Beautiful voice

I really thought the piano was soothing. Great control over your vocals. Almost like it takes you through a mini roller coaster of emotions. I enjoyed it. Best of luck to you and keep it up.

Beautiful tall vocal tones ....

A little problem in the middle frequencies but what matters ... is a very touching and sad aria ... a complacent sigh that refers to the far east ... a fairy lunar with wonderful and well measured pauses and with very good play on Piano ... I like the recording because it's simple and true with immediacy and without technological interventions ..... it raises your attention with the unique warmth that the wonderful voice exudes .... it is like shouting from afar if And she standing next to you ...

Wonderful voice!!

Wow, you had me hooked after just the first few seconds!! You make those high notes sound so effortless!! I am impressed (by which I mean JEALOUS lol! Tell me your secrets!). Even cooler is that the song is never boring even with the minimal piano accompaniment in the beginning. You don't need it -- you could carry the piece yourself lol! On a more "critical" note...the genre is marked as "singer songwriter," but I'm not sure if that's the best choice -- maybe it's just me, but I think of singer songwriter as being closer to pop music. Maybe you would fit better under contemporary classical or something? Just a suggestion (but, on the other hand, you might not get as wide an audience under "contemporary classical," so....well...it's up to you, I guess!)

Oprah and Theater

If you like Oprah theater music.then this is for you. Very nice piano playing soft and relaxing. 1920 to 1940 music with is a classic. So keep up the good work. Never stop.yours truly LS Lighter

Bee Stings and, other things...

Through the first minute or, so I wasn't sure what I was listening to... This begins like some kind of haunting, free style improv sort of randomly thrown together or, just a spur of the moment musical whim because it wandered around so much... And, maybe that's all it's supposed to be... I stuck with it and, listened to the whole thing because scattered throughout there were parts of it that were very captivating, soothing, and enticing to hear... If this is written music, I strongly suggest getting it produced with some complimentary pieces and, it would likely draw serious appreciation but, in this raw form; probably not... Overall, I enjoyed it and, believe your have a real potential in the ambience market...

The Bee

It is truly one of the most facinating and revealing expressions of deep, emotional expressions. I understand the need for expressing the joy, sadness, elation, pain, love, sorrow, which all of us feel at any given moment in time. The human voice can express such emotional evocations, that words simply cannot express. The only thing I would change, or enhance what I hear in this song, "The Bee", is to add a bit of technical ambience to the vocals, to place it in a deep and wide stereo full concert reverberation, so as to send it soaring high above the audience. Also, use a steinway grand.

etheral emotive

Marline's song "Bee", has a very ethereal feel to it with her haunting voice trailing over the piano. It reminds me of the experimental Bjork but very striped back. The vocal recording it self could in my opinion be better, as it sounds thin and with a voice and style like this more reverb would work well.

Ethereal

Very interesting concept. I love the piano work. I think the vocals need more echo to the in with the beauty of the music. I think the piano should definitely be at the forefront of the song.

Nice try, but we need a song !

The least you can say is this track is peculiar, and it looks as if it is a daunting task to review it ! But let's have a go : it consists in a series of tunes (arias ?) sung by a single voice : Marline's. The piano gives a nice background and acts as a foil to the vocals -it also provides a kind of musical interlude halfway through the song, because it is a long track ! There is no recurrent melody when it starts again, it is just another set of 'operatic' vocals. It does sound like an opera at times, but the voice is not always perfect and a real tune is lacking. So the whole thing is surprising, even interesting, but doesn't sound more than a singing drill. I really thing it could be turned into a proper song, but it needs a reverb on the vocal, a real structure, and real tunes. I haven't read the other reviews, and I might be totally wrong, but once the song has an objective other than just showing off a (good) voice, it will hopefully start to be effective.

Very Special ! what a voice !!! Congratulations !!! j 'ai juste une observation : Dommage que vous ne chantiez pas plus dans cette composition , j aurai aimé entendre votre voix accompagner le piano davantage et aussi le volume du piano pas assez devant ...

The Bee

Sometimes something enters from another place and manifests itself, if allowed there is poise and grace to be received as in in this composition, although the vocal track should be trimmed back to better suit the audible balance of the the instrument accompaniment and more reverb added to give assured depth. The vocals were uneven; I don't know if this was the artist's intent but vocal technique when applied gives steady support, for ex: when reaching the highest note, strain; when it appeared the artist wanted a soaring sophisticated approach. The piano movement was searching and stirring but could have been better mic'ed. This selection is for the eclectic listener's market..

Singer of Light ~ The Bee

The vocalist is lovely, a bit forced a the beginning of each high note. I do enjoy the instrumental and it's composition. I am entranced to hear about the life of the bee as it is interpreted by this Composer. It is a heartfelt interpretation by someone who is akin and in tune with nature. I would recommend it with high marks for the Traditional Classic Genre. The vocalist is lovely, a bit forced a the beginning of each high note. To gain depth in your voice without effort I would suggest for the high notes taking the Distance Learning Course, Sing With Freedom Lessons on DVD by Per Bristow, International Voice Coach. He has helped me immensely, and his warm up exercises which I find for my voice do wonders for my vocal range before each recording session.
