It’s a Canadian national anthem that can be heard throughout Canada and has been played on Canadian national highways since the 1930s.
But now, the Canadian Government is trying to get it into the national repertoire of music.
And they’ve found a good sounding instrument to do it with: a Vocaloid synthesizer.
The idea is to take the lyrics from the lyrics of a song called ‘Canada’s Highway’ and then incorporate it into a new instrumental song.
The lyrics are not particularly complex, but they’re certainly memorable, says Paul Rietberg, executive producer at Vancouver-based music producer and songwriter, Ventura.
And when the song is played on a highway, it will bring back a nostalgic feeling, says Rietenberg.
“It’s a good way to get the song into the ears of Canadians.”
Vocaloids are the first ever music synthesisers that can generate sound using sound waves.
They’re often used to record and process sound, as well as to produce sound effects.
For the Vocalura project, Rietberger and company developed an app called Vocalizer.
Ventura is using it to produce an original song that will be played on the new highway.
It was developed to capture the song’s lyrics and melody, and combine it with music from a song by the American musician John McLaughlin called ‘The Way You Used to Walk’.
Rieters goal was to combine the song with lyrics from a 1960s Canadian song called “The Way you Used to Ride.”
The lyrics to that song were written by a Canadian poet named David McLaughlin.
“I had written a few lines about a Canadian woman, and she had the lyrics written down, but she never mentioned Canada, so I just wrote those lines down,” says Rieber.
The app was designed to be able to create a synthesized version of the song.
For example, if you are playing it on a radio station, the lyrics will appear on the screen as an overlay on top of the lyrics.
This way, when you are driving along a highway you can hear the lyrics and the music playing.
The company also built an app to let you control the sound level of the synthesizer and play it back on a car stereo.
The result is an original piece of music that will play on the highway, says Dave Sarto, chief executive officer of Ventura, which also owns the rights to the song “The Ways You Used To Ride”.
“It has a lot of good melodies, and you’ll hear that it sounds good when you play it on your car stereo,” he says.
The project is funded through a Canadian-Canadian Collaboration in Music, an initiative that aims to bring the music of Canada to Canadian audiences.
It aims to develop music that is culturally and linguistically relevant.
“Music is very important to Canadians,” says Sartot.
“We’re trying to help Canadians understand Canadian music.”
