Description : Headphones are recommended for a more immersive experience :P - - - A weary American soldier is walking through the remains of what used to be a small town in the middle east, only to rediscover the horrible reality that sometimes war can affect even the ones who have no part in it.

    I started off wondering if I was going to have nightmares of wars I've never seen... and walk away from that into some kind of lovely place of serenity... truly a moving production. I hope one day we will have cause to collaborate on some things. To be able to tell a story like that without a single word, though... pretty impressive.

    Wow!!! Truly amazing. I would love to hear more from you in this genre.
    Very powerful. It immerses you in this chilling yet beautiful atmosphere and then it suddenly fades out and you snap out of it thinking where the heck you just were.
    Phenomenal job on this one!

    But you've got the sounds down, to as close to real as you can be
    without being there...

    But if these Dummies don't, straiten up and fly right this will be
    just a lullaby, compared to what will come...Seek and ye shall find...

    Hey, great to hear that's your vocal.

    You should put that in the track description.

    I already know that you can sing but now I hear that you're into doing this sort of vocal, you should really go to town on it and build more similar vocals up to something bigger and better. Record a load of layered harmonies and make a very beautiful track. And try not to make it pop music though you can do that too, if you like (maybe on a different track).

    I think perhaps the greatest example of what I'm talking about would have to be 10CC's all-time classic I'm Not In Love. Extremely time-consuming vocal production back in the day when doing these things was a lot harder. Read up on how they made that track as it's pretty damn interesting.

    Hello EpicRecord

    This is someting like cool music for an intro, a sequence, or a storypart for a 3D game.
    Reminds me a little on this dark sequences in Max Pain

    This music in the background. From the off a male voice tells the sad story and the video shows a dark painted comic strip.

    I think you done it realy well.

    Just a couple tricks I use, vlc media player can be used to rip the audio from video. I only use public domain videos because of copyright. Then I'll cut up the audio in pieces I want for voice samples or whatever. I make a lot of sound/voice samples myself because sometimes you simply can't find what you want. Keep an open mind when looking for sounds, it's amazing what can be used to represent what you want. Poor quality can often be fixed (like noise removal, ect.), not always, but... Also these are ADDICTIVE!! :D Keep up the great work ER :D

    BradoSanz
    Reply by BradoSanz

    Yeah, the stuff I use is free and is good for non-commercial use (I don't plan on making any money off this stuff haha. And yeah, for the distant talking vocals in the soundscape part, I had to to do it cuz I couldn't find any samples with people talking like that haha. I'm just talking jibberish, but you can't tell cuz it blends with everything else :P

    Soldierly greetings.

    Damn, it's a refreshing change to hear you do something other than pop music. I was expecting it to break into that any moment. But, no you kept it deep and solemn throughout.

    Walking/trudging/battlefield/noise intro sounds fairly accurate and then we have a wailing voice. A little reminiscent of the exceptional Lisa Gerrard, of Dead Can Dance fame (perhaps one of the greatest singers alive).

    Then the baby enters, wails then dies/is removed from the soundscape in a mushroom cloud of reverb and we're into just music - no ambient sounds/effects.

    It's a great, emotive piano tone and then hanging string note does a fine job. Where is that vocal from?

    And then it's over (too short). I'd listen to this if you made it longer, developed it and removed a lot of the battlefield trudging ie just got straight to the music.

    So, develop it further, turn it into a full piece and you'll have an emotive, deep chillout track.

    Immersive congratulations.

    Hey Static! The vocals was myself :P I did a falsetto and then added a good amount of long reverb. It did the trick, I think :P I agree that its too short, cuz school is killing me! Hopefully I can get back to this one. Thanks for stopping in!

    I was expecting this to be good, considering it's you. But you just raised the bar... again.

    Why headphones? I don't own a pair of speakers (might explain why my tracks can tend to fall apart when listening to them on a pair of speakers) but I don't see how using speakers would take away from the appreciation of your artwork.

    Keep it up!

    Headphones allow for a more immersive experience. :P Of course, I'm not saying speakers are a no-no for this one (they're perfectly okay :P), but headphones simply allow for a greater sense of actually being in the environment, rather than just "hearing" it with speakers, if that makes sense haha. Glad you liked it, asidRn :P

    hi Epic.

    I USED HEAPHONES this time anyway.

    The beginning of your track reminded me of 'Saving Provate Ryan' kind of thing. Some other sounds are really in the style of phatkatz, that piano is pure commertial (emotional?) TV stuff but overall this is some really good effort. Nice to hear something different from you.
    Good track.

Description : Dear Loopers...Let Ed and me take you to the world of yet another musical fantasy born out of our latest collab efforts. Ed provided basic structure of the track with ever solid rhythm section, tasty synths and vocal pads while I took
on a role of pretending to be multi-instrumentalist again by smuggling in some sweet strings, bulgarian flute, celtic harp,
unexpectedly blurry piano and this time a tiny bit of real live acoustic guitar...what an adventure for a vst/keyboard guy..:) As always
my sincere thanks to Ed not only for letting me enjoy his great musical company but also for still standing as one of the firm pillars of Looperman society !

Description : I went to the beach and set up my stereo recording mic under a gazebo near it (I apologize for some of the air gusts being recorded haha; we had a strong SE wind that day :P Tried my best to place it out of the wind); wanted to record myself playing live and do some cheesy roleplay in the process - wanted to make it feel like the listener was sitting there beside me. ** This is what the beach looks like: http://static.travel.usnews.com/images/destinations/80/south_padre_island_main.jpg **

Lo and behold, I'm about halfway through the song when my buddy Mark, a friend from college, heard me singing and decided to join me (he seems to never part with his guitar lol).

The expression on his face was that of confusion as to why I had my mic with me and a audio-capturing device, which I plugged into an outdoor electrical plug that the gazebo owners installed lol (I've done recordings like this before but didn't like the results; we messed up a little at the end but I was like meh it's not bad anyways.) but I'm glad he didn't say it out loud or it would have ruined the recording lol. Luckily, I was playing a song he and I wrote together some time ago, so he was able to just jump right in. He's a great guitar player.

Even though it was a little awkward at the end since we hadn't seen each other for like 4 months (you might be able to tell by the way I responded to his "thats so cool" comment haha), I think it turned out just fine. It was a lovely evening and the clouds were all poofy and happy. Lots of people were there too, though I made sure to sit far away from all of them. Ahh, it was a beautiful day. I'm glad I live by the ocean :P * Just kidding, I recorded this in my studio; though I do live close to the water, this was not recorded there :P I did everything, down to the wind blowing into the mic, except for the sound of water and the kids in the background. I got those sounds here: freesfx.co.uk/login/

The guitars and vocals were one-takes to give a more realistic feel. No pitch-correction or autotune. Just wanted to try making another soundscape (or whatever you want to call this :P) about what it's like to live by the ocean.

Description : While I concluded the previous year with the shortest track ever uploaded it seemed only appropriate to begin the new one with my longest track ever.

Description : Glen Cloy is one of the glens of Antrim (Tumbleweed's county) in Northern Ireland. The little people, actualy fairies, populate all of them and they all have very old ghost stories that have been told for centuries (and still are)...This one is about Shaman of old and his journeys through the spiritual world...That sums up what Ed told me about the concept for our 7th (how convenient^^) collab work. The main core of the track is Ed's work and the original length was 5:18, but I wouldn't have been Orlando if I didn't tempt to compose my longest intro to date (3:10) to inject my own fantasies about little creatures of Glen Cloy (soft spot for spiritual world..hehe..). Other than that I also added some synths arrangements and vocal samples for the rest of the track and probably ruined it a bit..haha..but that's how collabs are sometimes..:)^^.....All my thanks to Ed...and Irish ghosts ofcourse...

Description : Last time when I uploaded my track called "The Ring Of Saturn" many reviewers stated that it should belong under "ambient" category, since I tagged it as "cinematic"... so this led me to decision to give you the mother of all ambient pieces and here it is!:)Yet, it has something in common with the previous one....you won't need your sleeping pills... again..:)^^

Tags : | Ambient | 9.59 MB

Description : It's been a while since my last upload, yet here is finally the new one and it's 'dangerous' as it gets cause this time I ultimately decided to dedicate this thing to my dear friend Ed, the man well known to Looperman audience as Tumbleweed.. He has been my huge inspiration for those past few years and always will be. Luckily we've made some pretty decent stuff together and more is to come. Working with Ed helped me to improve alot and this composition is now my way of saying 'thank you' to him and music should express my gratitude better than words....One might expect this will be Irish (or Celtic) music, but it's not necessarily the case...as the title suggests it's merely the touch of it....it's like a mirage in the highland mist and it's full of orlandesque crap to be honest...haha...yet I decided to include a tiny snippet of a famous traditional Irish song at the very end of the track and I bet you will recognize it instantly ...particularly for the lads with Irish roots this shouldn't be a problem...:) So, Ed...put your headphones on and be merciful my friend...:)

UPDATE: 10th March 2016 / Today I decided to do an
alternative mix of the track...and hell yeah, I think it sounds much better now !:)

Description : Guys, I had this vison in my head like a short movie, I keep seeing my dear friend who is a top man in LM. Walking semi drunk with wonderful Dick Tracy type suit and hat in a dark ally in the City of vice. While this images flashing in my head, this tune was developing in my head too. I hope you enjoy it if you do and like it then please leave me a comment.
