Description : EDIT: you can download the full album for free http://mrwolf14.bandcamp.com ....... I decided to put some of my songs together in an album (just for myself).
Since most of the inspiration came from this wonderful site, I will post all of them here.
I am more or less done with the mix, I need to master the track and even if this is just for myself, I would like to get the best possible sounding record.
So ... I am all ears! Expecting for your precious inputs (as usual).

Big thanks to Mr Billy Dragon for this wonderful poem:

This was the first thing I downloaded and used from looperman. So of course it had to be my "opening track".

    Hey MrWolf, nice work man! very cool spoken word piece, I like the live almost cavern feel you've created here it's almost minimalist in nature but has an ambience that floats those lyrics perfectly creating an excellent ambience....great composition with a strong message! cheers Dave

    I love the emotion of this. I love the spoken word, but the musical arrangement is so good in this one. Perfect use of minimal bass and guitars. Bluesy and yet progressive. Awesome work my friend. Though Billy's Vox of utopia(paradise) lost is unrealistic to reality, (we are actually improving the Human condition not regressing) it's still a great listen.

    Thanks for the kind words Cru.
    Actually I also think that we are improving our condition, despite what a lot of people cry. I find it a bit strange: elder people are stating that 40 years back everything was better ... of course it was! they were 40 years younger!

    Nevertheless I find Billy's poem on the idea of a "lost paradise" very romantic.

    Thanks again for the kind words.
    Ciao, Domenico

    Don't forget to clean your needle off when playing your records, he. Nice intro, I don't miss the crackling noise while listening to music these days unless it is an effect like here. Hey Domenico, hope you are well!

    Billy Dragon's pella's are always interesting, he has his own style that stands out. I like the relaxed feel to the track, very 70's to me. The keys and guitar with the blues style drums set a neat tone and feel to the track. The vocals are not typical of this style of music but they work great. I like the guitar stabs, nice attack.

    Well done man, very cool track!

    Hi Wayne, sorry for the huge delay.
    Thanks a lot for listening to this track: this is the 1st track I have recorded using "looperman-material" and it's still one of my favorites.
    So... kudos to our MrDragon!

    Very cool bluesy style on this one! I always enjoy interpretations of BD's spoken word, and you've done a great one here. The vinyl effect used is a cool one, and sets the tone well. Can't say there was anything in this I didn't like. Great work!

    Thanks Spiv!
    I liked the idea of having a vinyl sound on the first track of the "album" ... I am a bit a nostalgic :-)

    Loved the ethereal vibes of this track man. The guitar work was solid, and had a non-generic chord progression, which I appreciated. Good work!

    hi. Very solid rock style arrangement and chilled for sure. I was listening to your track earlier today but now I realize it is actually a phased el. piano here not a synth from 0:13 haha.
    Nice work with the acapella and really solid production - I just finished a track with very similar instrumentation and for sure can appreciate your work in here. Keep at it!
    Best to you, Alex

    Thanks for the kind words Alex.
    I like "tweaking" the e-piano sound ... I consider it a bit like a guitar (and the fender rhodes was not far from it actually).
    Take care, Domenico

    Sensational track with deep thoughts...

    The atmosphere is stunning what you created, I love the guitar tone and your playing style...the chord progression is flying...

    Huge congrats and shake hands Domenico, greetings, Danke

    Thanks a lot Danke... credit for the depth goes all to Billy. He is the man!

    I think this is the first song I have ever posted on looperman some time back (2012?) but I have heavily reworked it in the last week.
    Thanks to all the precious inputs from the looperman community I think I have become a better musician ... not too much... but you cannot expect miracles :-)
    Take care!
    Domenico

We once walked the Earth without fear
Our minds was amazing and our visions so clear
We once walked next to dragons
And all animals ate grass as lions do with deers

But what was once enough became too little
As desire increased in the heart of man

Trouble in paradise
When we walk in rebellion
Trouble in paradise
As the Earth's population increse in the billions

We once were strong and much taller
And we lived ten times longer
We spoke one language of the human race
And there were no disease, drought or starvation

But was once enough became too little
For we began to labour with pain to gain

Trouble in paradise
When we walk in pride
Trouble in paradise
As generations increase in wickedness and die far too young.

(c)Billy Dragon

Description : Sounds of the sea and trippy acidy washes with a cool beat and some live acoustic guitar. Written in Cubase with live guitar and keys etc. The sound of the sea and birds was recorded on the beach where I used to live. After moving to the city one sunny day I was telling stories to a friend about living by the sea and started making this track.

Description : Many of you know well that Tumbleweed & Orlando collabs are pretty much well established tradition within LM society by now, and here is the newest example to reinforce that tradition. 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 !... As always my sincere thanks to Ed !

Description : I was inspired by 2 looperman loops created today and came up with this track. Thanks to the following:

Description : The spring is in full motion over here and I guess it helped me quite a bit to complete my part of the job on yet another exciting collab with maestro Tumbleweed. Most of our collab works contain at least some aspect which demonstrates something out of ordinary one or another way. This time we got a peculiar combination of mysticism and merciless attacks of soapiness (my bad....haha)....So let's listen to hear whether I'm right or not!....:) As always on such occasions, all my thanks to Ed !
