    I am not sure how I missed this one, especially around Halloween, but I am glad I discovered it. This had to be a "nightmare" to try and capture all of the meter changes, and have the chaos all meld together to make a cohesive track. Really innovative and a lot of fun to listen to.....looks like the 3 mad scientists got together and made this one work really well. An enjoyable listen and a tip of the hat to all of you. I hope all is well.

    This is..almost a lil too much irony. I watched a video last night that informed me of what the last episode of "Tom & Jerry" was. Not sure if 100 percent true because I haven't watched the last episode. It showed clips though. I dunno if you've ever watched it but I don't think you necessarily have to like cartoons to have seen this show before. Anyways, I didn't know the last episode was about both of them eventually killing themselves over cheating girlfriends. Their suicide was waiting for the train on the train tracks...eerie. This track almost fits that episode in a way. Creative use of fx. Synths are nicely done. Can hear this in Banjo Kazooie even too. Great collab between Spiv and Phatkatz. Definitely a cinematic production. peace

    Reply by midisparks I remember Tom & Jerry but that is a bizarre thing to do for a last episode in a cartoon. I don't know Banjo Kazooie. thanks for the positive comments on the track. really appreciate it.

    Oh man, where have I been, I didn't even realize this was finished! That darn cat! (Literally!) I love what you've done to take this idea too a complete (and completely vital) state! The ending was just crazy in a good way. I know it was a challenge to use those loops I sent, but you've done superbly in trying to understand my way of thinking. Burton has a great mind for cinematic arrangement and atmosphere, and this would be missing something without his work. Very happy to be a part of this, so thank you! Fav'd!
    midisparks
    Reply by midisparks I'm glad you had a chance to listen to the final! it took a minute to bring this one around both conceptually and with the mix. but I think it landed in a decent place and I'm happy. thanks again very much.

    This one truly put a smile on my face and just in time for Halloween. I wish I knew how you do it. With Spivkurl I knew it would be magical. Quite entertaining as the the Zombies holla! Very enjoyable, and like you Dan I am on a journey for new and exciting tunes as well. Nicely Done! Peace Dan! Joe

    Reply by midisparks i'm glad you had a chance to check it out! it was hard sampling the zombie cause he wouldn't keep still and my dog kept barking at him! LOL! these are fun (even the hours of swearing over the mix) and the biggest complement is when someone truly enjoys it. thanks. let's stay in touch. Dan

    in all seriousness ... I loved it ..

    keep 'em coming you crazy guy..
    midisparks
    Reply by midisparks it took a minute to get this one in focus. a lot of elements to mix (at least for this baby producer). but having a story line (especially a phatkatz story line) is a neat way to find direction and inspiration for a track. really glad you had a chance to take listen and enjoyed. see you round the cyberhood.

    Wow - this is definitely some weird stuff (in a good way, of course.)

    I think it is a very 'funny' song and the cat sounds are good too. Keep it up!

    -R.P.S
    midisparks
    Reply by midisparks it was fun developing cat sounds. I think one was just made with the voice synth in FL studio using martian sound and the word meow. then effecting it in a few ways. I don't know how Spiv made his cat loop but it was awesome. I'm glad you enjoyed it. thanks for stopping by. peace. Dan

    Reply by midisparks thanks very much Scott. it has had quite a facelift in the last few days. more present. but yea - I enjoy these cinematic efforts - telling a literal story at least in part. i'm fortunate to have good collabs. but the mix has been an absolute trial from heaven.

    3 flew the cookoos nest :p I like this version :D I like that voice synth, going see if I can find one. I have Natural reader which I guess is similar, text to speech. Used it on Gothic Lullabye (the poem part) Was the Zombie after Patience's tuna? Joe say's they don't like cat meat. Uh oh, there's men in white coats coming :O .....
    midisparks
    Reply by midisparks yea - i guess we could do worse than reps for creative lunacy. def zombie wanted patience' food. has no use for the housecats per se. prefers hanging with ferals. making this up of course. just my contribution to the urban legend.

    Reply by midisparks thanks soundhound. I appreciate it. just keep trying to stay out of the way of the melody! That zombie did need some taming, however. He was hissing off the spectrum and needed some cuts. thanks for stopping by. nice to hear from you. regards - Dan

    Bizarrely sets a scene.

    midisparks
    Reply by midisparks yea. Burton comes up with the story lines and Pat managed to figure out my crazy time signatures and enhance as always. still tweaking this one. there is a zombie rock ending now. thanks for stopping by Mark. you have really heard the evolution like nobody else buddy.

    Your stuff is really off the cuff. This truly is on the bizzare (however you spell it) side. It's really freaky sounding. I'm going to download it and play it to my mates when we're all a bit out of it because i reckon this would freak everyone out.
    Congrats for daring to be different.

    Reply by midisparks thanks very much FR. still mixing and recently added a bit of zombie rock at the end. i honestly would like to color this one even more to elevate that freaky aspect but I'm happy if you are tuning into it nonetheless. thanks again for the cyber visit. - Dan

    Reply by midisparks thanks, Pete. i am always happy when you talk about the harmonies because you know your stuff. it was fun working through the challenges of an "odd meter" on this one as well. still mixing a little. added a bit of zombie rock out at the end. thanks again. talk to you soon.

    Reply by midisparks Thanks for stopping by Joe. I'm glad you are liking it. trying to think how I can effect the zombie voice a little to sustain interest. same with the meows.

    I'm not much of a lead guitar player or I'd give it a shot at the end, good description hahaha. Like the edits :D These are a blast!! I still need to use that boiling murder somewhere 3:D> For what ever reason that biohazard loop just doesn't sound right to me with spiv's beat :/ Popular zombie right there! He really gets around. I think I've killed him twice now so far, f*er keeps coming back for more! Looks like it's Patience's turn to do him him, if she doesn't get eaten or turned into a zombie cat :D How did you make the Meow? (not the meow synth I used, the other "meow")
    midisparks
    Reply by midisparks hey Burton. that meow was made using the vocal synth in FL Studio. I think it is the martian sound. you just type in the word meow, tell the synth what flavor you want, and out it comes. I have a lot of mixing to do but I think the version posted now (as of 10/14) is pretty much laid out in final form. I am posting an abbreviated version on the website and that one will be revised as well. Talk to you soon. Enjoy the Halloween season.

    hi, very nice and funny work. I really like all 'cat' sounds. There's some ambient wet noises like waterdrops or something. The breaking of 4/4 meter is good as well as breaking cat's chill. Great work. Alex

    Reply by midisparks thanks alex. i hope i can get this to a little better place over the next few days but it is a fun track. thanks again for stopping by.

Description : HEY, hey guys...IM BACK! and it feels amazing. I took a month or so off to work thru some shit, and in that time i bring you this. Personally my best work so far imo. I may add lyrics to it eventually, but not sure yet. The original has a longer beginning for that reason. Thanks to chanho17 for uploading great piano loops for use. let me know what you think!
Description : First off, I am a huge fan of the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy and "The Hobbit." After watching all of the movies (including the final chapter of the Hobbit", I was motivated to write something that I thought might work with their journey home. Samplitude has a couple of great new VST's, one called "World Flutes" and the other "Celtic Harp" and I used both of them in this song. I created every last note on this one. Guitars were all Fenders, soft synths besides the Samplitude items mentioned previously were created in the SynthMaster series by KVR, and the strings were created with Samplitude's "String Ensemble." Not sure about the mix (my hearing is shot), so most of the mixing is done by sight instead of listening. If you hear something way out of whack, let me know. If you are interested in taking this one further, let me know and I'll post a link to the stems. Thanks to the Hobbit for the inspiration and to you for listening. EDIT: I've had some requests for the individual instrument stems so here is the link to all of those files. The tempo is 80bpm. Feel free to do whatever you want with this one. https://www.mediafire.com/?vzbi2scw8vc7cws EDIT: I've had over 200 downloads of the stems, so if you have done anything with them it would be cool to hear it (thanks for the interest).

Description : Ok...here it is! Another colab with maestro Tumbleweed! Ed provided the unfinished, basic track...I composed and recorded the long intro using different synths and then added piano (well to the fore) and some brass arrangements along the rest of the track (no violin this time...hehe) and then did the final mixing to wrap it up as it is presented now. I hope you will enjoy it and we both appreciate your listening time and your valuable comments:) Otherwise all thanks to Ed!

Description : Recently I decided to explore some darker themes for weeks to come (not counting possible collab releases). This is the first one of a kind although it's not entirely on the dark side. I think it preserves that peculiar romanticism of mine, so I see it also as an atempt to mix and balance the moods to give it a bit of uniqueness I guess...and don't bother about the genre...I just had to put it somewhere..:)^^ *UPDATE* 15th August 2015: I shortened the intro a bit to make it more concise and to maybe improve the listenability of the track as a whole!

Description : a 277 second cinematic about human wars... I know its a lot for a 17 years old boy to think about this type of things, but its me, and it cant be changed... lemme tell you about story of the music... first it starts from WorldWar2, one of the most sadly years for human. then after the war, you can see people are happy, kids are playing, but after some years, you can see the world is getting ready for the WorldWar3 and then you can hear the rest of the story in music...

Description : This time around I made a rare exception in terms of my usual way of doing things. In most cases I avoid using samples, loops or any other kind of pre-recorded material due to my strong preference of making music from scratch! Yet, here is one of those rare occasions where I decided to combine my recently composed and recorded material with some samples from Magix sound library. And here is the result...not necessarily cinematic...but you know..:)^^ Any comments appreciated!

Description : Guy’s this is sound track I have created for a friend who is a documentary film maker. The film is about the distraction of Earth neutral beauty and creating concrete jungles in its place. It was really sad to see so I came up with this track. Majority of it done with minor keys to reflect the sadness I hope you all like it.

Description : 1906 was the year of the largest emigration wave of Sicilians to America. Sicily, the cradle of mafia and vendeta, and the land of poverty. Why did I compose this? Coincidentaly, last week I was watching again all three "Godfather" movies after a long time (Marlon Brando is still my favourite actor), so I got an idea! The sentiment of leaving beloved homeland and family in desperate search for a better future is the key here to capture. Human heart in sadness but full of hope ! Mediteranean flavour mixed with almost classical elements prevails in this little extra offer. Not a cup of tea for everyone then...probably only for those who are able to survive all that orlandesque trumpery.:) It's a tricky one...ok?

Description : The song is meant to depict the weather here on the coast of Florida on a typical summer day. We often get the chance of severe thunderstorms and often tornadoes but the day doesn’t usually start that way. Light breezes and warm temps make for a great day until the storm hits and all hell can break loose! I asked Dave if he would like to help with the bass guitar on this track and in return he essentially gave me two tracks. In the first part of the song he uses his new bass guitar in which he personally designed and built from blocks of wood. It has a beautiful jazz sound and really adds to the feel of a light breezy morning. In the second part of the song, Dave uses his Precision Fender bass to give the song a little more attack during the part with the storm kicks in. I used several instruments in Ableton’s orchestra pack and added plenty of live instruments. I used delay extensively in this track and even tried my slide on my electric guitar for the first time to represent the wind. It was certainly a pleasure working with Dave on this track and he added an certain element with his style of playing and sound that goes beyond what I could've put down so I appreciate Dave's input immensely and I'm quite pleased with the track! Enjoy!
