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!

    Kind of reminds me of a Spirit vibe. Almost think Randy California is in the room. I'm an instant fan. PDMuzak

    Reply by theHumps Thanks Mos! I tried to keep the chord structure and arrangement simple and tried to create a musical storm from my perspective. Dave is great, what can I say!

    Cheers!

    Hi Wayne,
    I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate this song. Outstanding "background" work of MrPJB (good taste as usual from him) and a lot of delicate and soft details coming from you.
    Very well mixed as well.
    Liked it.
    Ciao, Domenico

    Reply by theHumps Thanks Domineco for the nice words, I'm sure Dave appreciates them as well! Still working on finishing off my mixes but it's coming along.

    Cheers!

    Talk about a power couple :) Seriously two majorly talented people collaborate on a great song. There is nothing to critique here Wayne, just respect to two guys who really know what they are doing. Great cinematic piece that was executed flawlessly. A tip of the hat to both of you guys. I hope all is well down your way and that you are getting ready for the crazy race crowd next month, haha.

    I'm far enough away from all that craziness now. I get the occasional motorcycle down my road but it is quite here in my neighborhood. The craziness is year round in Daytona Beach, it's a fun place!

    Yo, Mr Humps.

    Some pretty gentle stuff here that I think would really suit a soundtrack about something outdoors. Could actually be snow or sunshine. Or both at the same time!

    Guitar chords instantly have a great, warm, appealing tone.

    0:24-0:26 and elsewhere you have some bits of noise that make me think of ocean spray. What's that?

    Bass has good tone - no surprise there. Good playing too.

    Your kettle drum-like toms fit this vibe well.

    1:03 brassy instrument adds another good sonic colour and blends well with kettley toms.

    1:38 aha is that the start of a bit of slide? I think so and like those low notes. I hear high ones elsewhere.

    1:54 alarm clock kind of sound is odd but atmospheric.

    2:10 onwards things get a bit weirder, freakier and psychedelic. There are some vocals too.


    Good end. Not just a fadeout for a change (yes, I know you've also done that before) but letting those notes ring works well for this.

    Overall: good, atmospheric outdoor soundtrack music that seems to fit how you've described it.

    Congrats.
    theHumps
    Reply by theHumps Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I wasn't too sure on the genre but seeing as I based the music on a particular thing such as the weather I felt that was the best genre although chill out could work as well. All the instruments I chose were specifically picked to represent an aspect of what happens when one of these storms roll in. I used A few orchestral instruments because I feel they are best used for cinematic pieces.

    I dug into Ableton's Orchestra pack and tried many different instruments like glockenspiel and trombones, tubas and different percussion instruments. The alarm clock you mentioned is actually a xylophone and a grand piano. At that point in the song I wanted the "calm before the storm" then tension to build. In a way it is like an alarm clock because it's counting down the time slowly and when the alarm goes off, the storm kicks in.

    Dave's bass guitar track worked great to set the right mood for each of the two distinct parts of the song. Wish you could see his guitar, it is something to be proud of. I did a lot of harmonics on the acoustic guitar and I also played some notes on the mandolin and use delays to help create a nice light feel. I think that is what you are hearing that reminded you of ocean spray. The low slide you hear could be my slide playing but also could be Dave's great bass playing, it is fretless and the man can play the hell out of it!

    As you said things get a little psychedelic and weird. After listening to some tracks that had slide guitar in it, including your tracks, I wanted to try to use my slide to create the wind. I tried to convey mayhem and destruction by making it a bit psychedelic and I actually tried to stylize that part of the song(in some ways) after your music and how you tend to create some pretty far out stuff. So I would like to say thanks in that regard.

    I appreciate you stopping!

    Hey, this is way cool! Two words came to mind while listening - texture and expression. Very deep and complex in it's harmonic content and composition. Love the slide bits, and PJB's bass parts sound great in this setting! I always have a fun time when I visit your page! You've got chili peppers growing OUTSIDE right now?! I forget what state you're in... A pepper plant would be frozen solid outside here in a couple hours this time of year! Been trying to do tomatoes indoors this winter, but having trouble getting them to fruit... I'm thinking heirloom are difficult indoors, as they are a little tougher outside in season even. I sure do miss fresh local food this time of year. Thanks for sharing this awesome collaborative effort!
    theHumps
    Reply by theHumps Texture and expression is a pretty good summation of the track. It was all about setting a scene really. Dave's parts fit great and helped to set that scene. Glad you liked it Spiv, thanks for giving this a listen and leaving a comment!

    Outside during the day (65-75 degrees) and they are brought in at night when it goes below 50. A herd of bugs ate my bean plants but in about 5-6 weeks I was getting green beans, 4 handfuls. Growing long leaf lettuce and radishes now, just planted those and my green onions are starting to sprout.

    I'm from Florida, it's in the description, lol. You may need bugs, like bees and butterflies to pollinate the flowers on the plants. Indoors, during the winter they may not be getting what they need to fruit but I'm no farmer. :)

    See ya Spiv, thanks!

    Sounding good Wayne. It's completely different to Surf Bored as well which niceley demonstrates your diversity. Sounds like you must have good weather where you are because if i was to do a tune about the weather it would just be really dull and miserable. This track isn't!!!
    PJB's bass is excellent as is all your playing.
    Always enjoy your stuff.

    Reply by theHumps I've been cranking up my electric a little more often but I seem to always return to that acoustic. I try not to write the same song all the time, helps to grow as a song writer I think. Dave did a standout job in helping with the song's construction as well, suggesting I lengthen it in the first part and other bits.

    I am growing chili peppers now. I have 2 plants still growing from last summer and they just sprouted about 45 new flowers and the peppers are growing as I speak. Just ate 2 hand full of green string beans from my "garden"(in medium sized pots) Ya, it is nice here year round. It is so nice here I seldom wear pants. I mean I always wear shorts, hehe.

    Thanks for stopping by!

    Great composition Wayne!

    Hats off to you...creating this aura isn't an easy thing...fantastic feeling waving through the whole track...bass is just an element of it...for me it's a positive world music....

    Respect and shake hands, Danke

    One of your best!!!
    theHumps
    Reply by theHumps Thank you for the nice words Danke! I had two parts separated by 15 seconds when I recorded the acoustic track. When I moved the two parts together in my daw I thought of the storm idea instantly and things fell into place easily. Having a solid direction is great. Dave's track(s) was great, he added an important overall feel to the track so I am grateful for his contribution.

    I love world music when it takes me somewhere specific like the rain forest or a trek through a hot desert. Glad you liked it, Thanks!

    Reply by theHumps I have a new found respect for PJB now that I have seen his talent go beyond what I thought. The pics are fantastic, the craftsmanship and look of the bass is truly amazing.

    Glad you liked it. It was shorter and Dave talked me into making it longer in the first part. Thanks for listening!

    Well....when I see theHumps and Planetjazzbass on a track I know its going to be great stuff...playing to a scene...place...event always seems to be a cool way of getting the stuff in the mind into the music...Nice smooth light intro...is Dave`s bass in that section a fretless (he slides really smooth & even...not always easy to do)...This composition is more complex that a first listen might suggest....very thoughtful in the many little parts that appear doing their part....and the way the musical picture evolves through the day...great job guys...much respect from this ol boy & I enjoyed the listen a lot....Ed
    theHumps
    Reply by theHumps I had the basic idea down and was needing a bass track. I had talked to Dave a while ago and he said to send him a track so when I had a decent idea to fit his jazz style I sent it over. You must see the guitar he built, amazing! Yup, the man can play the bass!

    There is a lot going on but in little bits here and there. The chord structure is simple. Added harmonics and bits of mandolin and acoustic with delay on them.

    Thanks for stopping by Ed, glad you liked the song!

    hi Wayne. Really lovely song, listening to it I feel a bit jealous of the ocean and the sunny weather. Here in poland it is now rather gray and rainy, not much like a typical winter...
    I really enjoyed the song. There's kind of a very positive happy vibe here - it helps a lot. I like these eastern sounding elements you've added. Nice collab with PJB. Thanks for allowing downloads. Best to you, Alex

    Reply by theHumps Sorry to hear it is not warm in Poland. I am growing vegetables in my small garden during my winter. :)

    Thanks for the nice comments and glad you liked it! Dave did a great job, a true professional.

    Take care Alex.

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 : 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 : Dark, slow, ambient, cinematic jazz with funereal piano turning into something much funkier, psychedelic and beautiful in the second half. Out of the darkness and into the light, you could say. Instruments: electric guitar + bass, lots of synth sounds, including a horn, double bass, another big legato bass, pizzicato strings, two types of piano, a heavily delayed slide guitar instrument, zither, synth arp, one brushy drum loop, kettle drum rolls and 4 programmed acoustic drum kits. This is quite a special track for me and is only the second I've put in the cinematic genre. The more you listen, the more it changes (it even has key changes) and the last three minutes are really quite far out and should probably be longer. Best track I've made for a few months. Interesting thoughts and reflections appreciated. Free sex for the best reviews...
