Description : I can't sing because I am sick, so once again I tried my hand at putting loops together into a musical composition. I'm not very good at it, my attention span is short, and I have idea how to transition a song from a pad loop over to a different sound without losing the integrity of the song. Any advice would be helpful.

The royalty-free loops I used belong to the following Looperman musicians:

    Psychadelic erotica sounds right up my street so i thought i'd give this one a whirl. Love the intro, reminds me a little of pink floyd.
    Everything is splendidly mixed but why ony one and a half minutes? I was just getting into it then it faded out.
    HMPH!!

    Well, I've already given a fair bit of detail on transition suggestions so won't make anymore here.

    Instead, I'll just second Valvedriver's simple but good advice.

    This might work very nicely as an interlude, quite possibly an album intro.

    I'd rather hear a longer, fuller version but maybe if you just bring in and drop out the same loops for about a minute more, it'll be a cool album intro for a couple of minutes.

    I agree with Tumbleweed that there isn't anything wrong with your transitions. However, you did say you were lacking knowledge in how to make transitions so I thought I'd give a few basic suggestions, though it's hard to know if they'll be of any particular help here.

    And I have no idea why Behnam doesn't hear the Pink Floyd similarity - it's obvious within about 3 seconds to me.

    And the guitar is very Gilmour-esque.

    Both of those are good things but there's much more than just Floyd going on here so not just a ripoff of their wonderful and truly groundbreaking style. That band is its own genre!

    Tumbleweed on Sat 1st Mar 2014 - 5 years ago

    Hey JJ...you don`t need any advice on your compositional thinking at all...and the transitions going on here are smooth & right on...I could have listened a lot longer...judging by the results I`d say just keep doing what you do...I know about the patience thing very well...I have trouble finishing what I`m doing a lot as my head picks up a new idea....well done on this one...Ed

    Granted, this is short. But, you can use that to your advantage. This would be a good interlude on an album. This would work well to transition between two tracks that wouldn't otherwise flow well. Or, you can take the same loops, rearrange them slightly and use the two different versions as "Bookends" to an album. I've done that before, when I had a track that was too cool to get rid of, but too short to stand alone.
    As far as the arrangement goes, I really, REALLY like what you've done with it. It does have that Pink Floyd element to it. Normally, I don't make that comparison, because in my little world, Pink Floyd are on an untouchable pedestal. But, the proof is in the puddin'. Can't argue with what obviously is.
    Good work.

    Take care, and I wish for you, that the new arrival is happy and healthy.

    Hope you're well and life is treating you kindly.
    You will be a mother soon and new inspirations will surely flourish.

    I hope you keep up your writing and continue to grace us with snippets of your voice at your convenience.
    BTW - This was a good track and in particular the guitar I enjoyed. I am sure there is a full version somewhere among your compositions.

    Be kind, stay strong, look to the sun and your shadows shall fall behind. Blessings.

    My friend, with a child on the way and new interests/hobbies/directions, I am not on here or in the music scene much.

    But download and add to anything I post on here- no need to ask for permission.

    I don't have the same email anymore as I was getting swamped by junk and requests and don't have time to comb through it all now. I am not ready to publicly share my new email, and would feel more comfortable being able to listen to whatever you come up with on my own time if you can upload it online.

    Hope you and yours are well, we are here! It's a boy on the way!

    Apart from being a bit short this sounded good and was a great effort. It is always difficult putting loops together and getting transitions right is a fine art and sometimes there is a tendency to try and pack to much in, which can detract from the music. you have got the balance about right on this, well done and keep going.
    Best wishes,
    Mark/Larry!

    Thank you for this encouragement! It is quite the challenge stringing together loops only- especially since I have no instrumental talent and no knowledge of keys or notes except how it sounds to my ears. I am starting to grow a love for it though which helps as I learn slowly...very slowly. Maybe I will lengthen this if inspiration hits again soon! (danke always makes such great loops!!!)

    "I am very curious to hear your suggestions on transitions"

    Oh wow, where do I begin? So much to suggest - depends how much you want me to write.

    I make music based on a lot of jamming and then editing so not actually composing sections in advance in a traditional compositional sense. So, I end up with loads of transitions that need to be made smoother.

    Sometimes I end up playing a new little part to get me from one section to the next but often I use drum fills and effects to smoothe things out.

    If the feel in going from one bit to the next is awkward, if you distract the listener by making things extreme and powerful, this can help. So, a massive drum fill at the end of a bar - or maybe adding big reverb. Or delay at the end of the bar that rings out and decays (spills over) into the next. With delay, you'll often want to control the feedback control to make the delay more intense. You can automate that so it doesn't get too out of control.

    Scrutinise your samples and see if you can find little parts that you can cut out and then expand further - these can be used for transitions. With my guitar playing takes, I look for little incidental bits I never consciously planned and then chop these bits out to make fun little fills or even loop them as full parts. See the intro to my track Knee Deep In The Cosmic Overwhelm to hear just a small incidental bit of guitar looped up into its own groovy part.

    Reusing your material and finding other ways to stretch it out provides real continuity to the piece and sort of glues things together. I'm kind of like a hip hop sample/cutup guy, except the samples are all my own playing (apart from some drum loops I use).

    The stop-start things with the drums was OK here if you're going to legnthen the piece and then bring those drums in to be heard without so much stop-start.

    I hope some of those suggestions help though it's difficult to advise people when you don't know their software, their level of knowledge of what you're suggesting and so on. Ask if you want me to clarify anything.

    Well I must say that I'm very surprised that in 4 comments no one has mentioned Pink Floyd.

    This is very, very reminiscent of their legendary Shine On You Crazy Diamond. It's that classic organ as well as the guitar.

    Separately, I think Shine On You Crazy Diamond may be just about the most popular ever song in which it takes nearly 9 minutes (!!!) for the vocals to come in. Check it here:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mZDMcn33F4Q

    Your track again: good beat that moves it away from PFloyd and I like the reverse vocals too.

    They're all good elements though I think I would preferred a bit less start-stop with the beat. It's also way too short so you should lengthen this and then it will be more enjoyable. It's far out music (my favourite genre) so needs to be longer as this isn't long enough to really get into it and chill.

    As for " I have [no] idea how to transition a song from a pad loop over to a different sound without losing the integrity of the song" I have loads of suggestions but will save them for another time.

    I am very curious to hear your suggestions on transitions, as this is the reason for my track being so short. I will certainly work on the start-stop factor.

    Hello JJW, fresh air longing for I hear in this. You say not very good, this is great! It appears dark but I've never heard anything lighter. I saw a house with a downhill driveway, sun beating rays burn the floor, a woman walking down the driveway barefoot. She appears to look cold while all around is burning up. Eyes didn't lie. Very interesting piece and good loop usage. Your layering is just right. You should do more when time is available. Thank you for sharing. Peace.

    Thanks friend! I really want to continue on this one, but I've exhausted all the loops in the 100bpm range which means now I have to hear for little snipits to slow or speed up in other bpms. Not sure how to continue this while breaking away from the repetitious pad but keeping the integrity of the song. Maybe the more I practice the more I'll understand how it works.

    I think it sounds incredible and with the sensual ambiance, it also has a fitting title.

    Thank you so much! Sensual was what I was going for, but often with music it is hard for me to create the mood I envision unless it's vocals. It was a cool fluke that it worked here.

It's probably the last this year (yet never take it for granted) and I think it has (although not particularly intended) a bit of that seasonal celebrative nature, thus fitting quite well into this festive feel of December. Despite providing it's share of melancholic tones (you can bet who is responsible...haha...) it's a quite happy tune overall...and it doesn't bite, so you're all most welcome to listen and comment !...
