Description : there is no Observer, nothing is being observed. There is only the effortless observation itself happening spontaneously moment by moment... I recorded this today late afternoon using a pair of RodeNT55 microphones. Just a compilation of background sounds from the place where I live - a rural countryside. Wanted to capture only birds this time but you can hear also the cars and other sounds. I coloured the recording by adding a mixer reverb effect.

    Guess my comment on you other track was better suited here :O Fascinating concept, composing strictly with the sounds of our enviroment! :p The course I took was on Coursera. I remember reading a book on The Grateful Dead, What a long strange trip, and they talked about how they could hear music in everything, like the sound of the tire as they traveled down the highway, the hum of the motor.... If you listen long enough everything begins to have a musical pattern. This is eerie hahaha Awesome! Keep experimenting!

    Very engaging recordings and use of them! The quality of sound you captured seems very good. I too have been experimenting with field recording, and it can be very enjoyable. Sounds like a nice place where you live! Sometimes my in studio mic recordings end up sounding like a field recording even if that's not what I'm trying to record, ha ha! Pleasing to hear this morning, thank you for sharing! Fave!

    hey! Thanks a lot for listening to this one and friendly words. It's much appreciated!
    This is a quite specific region I live - eastern Poland. You might even hear very characteristic storks in the background haha (and tractors working lol).
    Anyway these new Rode mics are truly great - I intend to record the church organ this week as we are just about finishing our current organ restoration project (the instrument has to be properly tuned first - that's the final stage). I even constructed special tripod (in a rough version) to place the mics about 6m high to capture the organ sound properly. For now I will be experimenting with all this only for the purpose of documentation of the organ sound (as this is an old, historical object).

    I will need more time to record properly my old upright piano (I own also several old harmoniums but they are partly playable for now) using Rode mics as they come also with changable directional capsules. Soon or later I will post more live recordings and works like this one!

    But now it's almost 5PM in here and I just arrived home...

    Thank you again for some good words and for the fave!

    Best to you,
    Alex

    Wow! this is one great track. It doesn't always need to be music. Soundscapes are equally very interesting to listen to. I agree with Eyedye. There is something eerie about it. This reminds me of when you're about to blackout and the whole world is going in slow-motion and everything around is slowing down and becoming fuzzy. :)

    hey Ocean,

    I am sorry for long delay in replying on this one!

    I created that slow-motion effect by appliying a long reverb to the recording (in a real time) - it gave that additional depth to all these very common late afternoon sounds from here.

    I really wanted to capture that very natural ambiance but for some reason there was a great amount of people driving their cars at that particular moment.

    Thank you for reviewing this one.

    Best, A.

    strange natural darkness.
    just waiting for a dark deep bass.
    one might think there comes crawling something evil.
    I like that very well. and it sounding so clean. well observed

    The reverb work is realy great. It fits so well and changed all into something "made".

    nice one

    stay tuned

    thank you so much Joe!

    truly these tractors and agricultural machines working distracted me from my real purpose of recording only the 'pure nature' sound. as well as people driving their cars!
    Aaargh!!!

    lol

    Anyway that's what was happening then and I am happy I could at least run my new recording equipment properly working anyway...

    I appreciate your nice comments on this one!

    I`m a fan of Rode mics...use them a lot...I have often thought it would be fun to take a pair of mics & portable recorder out to some of my favf country/wilderness places and do some recording...so can appreciate what I think you had in mind here....the cars (with the reverb) do add a darker sound that overcomes some of those more natural sounds,...but I guess that is the real world....interesting promenade...good for you...Ed

    Reply by promenade2239

    Thank you a lot Ed.

    Basically I bought those microphones to record church organ but they have also a directional capsules so I can record other instruments as well, maybe I will try them for my old upright piano soon...
    Still I need more time to get more seriously into the music and the proper recording process. For now my actual 'real life' is still far too demanding and sadly there's quite limited time for music.

    Thanks again for the nice words and some interesting input on the equipment used here. As always it is much appreciated.

    Best Greetings from Poland:) Alex

    at first i was like "whaaaaaaat?"
    then i got it and it was awesome.
    definitely experimental, probably why i like it.
    Feel like the cars added a nice warm drone underneath (Oh god were using cars on the highway as instruments now?)
    course it also gave it creepy undertones.
    but all in all, this is just. so. interesting. XD

    Very experimental and almost sinister sounding with the reverb. Your entering John cage territory.

    Thank you a lot Steve.

    I much appreciate your comment on this one! Yes, in a sense it's quite experimental track but I experimented only with that slight reverb addition - I had to use it because I think that basically all very common ambient/surrounding daily sounds definitely appear as quite boring to the 'average listener' (but in fact they are far too underrated - they always stay moment by moment unnoticed and constantly ignored by average audience). Therefore I love them even more!

    I believe that John Cage was somehow a very spititual guy, like Tarkovsky. His epic highway scene https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rswYl7RLRNE was a main inspiration for creating this recording.

    I really like your current green avatar by the way. I had a green version of mine's as well (but sadly lost it). Everything is really turning green now (in a good sense) haha.

    Thank you again and all the best greetings to you,

    Aleksander

    firstly you must present something useful to be eligible for online collaboration meaning that you need simply to offer something good instead of keeping on 'try listen to my track' looperman spam comments.

    basically you are annoying but I do not mind.

    again: post a complete track/song

    this is cool man, something a little different. You've let people download, would it be cool to have this in the background of one of my songs for ambiance and add a bit of character? If not thats cool man :D

    BTW at 1.00 it sounds like a horror movie! haha sounds like its straight out of the Alien movies... id check your back yard for an Xenomorph... just sayin' haha :P

    haha thanks:)
    I am happy that you liked the strangeness in the recording. Just trying my new equipment in here.

    And yes, feel absolutely free to use it - sample it and transfom.

    I said 'that's not cool' to centralsdev because yesterday he has uploaded a snippet of my recording without any significant changes, as if it was he's original production.

    My inspiration here was dark ambient music by Rich/Lustmord

    Again thanks for some good words.

    promenade2239
    Reply by promenade2239

    yes this is pretty much the same. you just uploaded a fragment of my recording without giving me credits. that's not cool.

    I suggest you to post a link to the original sound source every time when using others work.

    and again: try to produce full song sometime, with proper ending and structure. Try harder.

    this recording was about 20 min long. notice how gently I faded in/out this snippet. Also I do not get your point on hall reverb. There's already a huge reverb added to my recording.

    thanks a lot for your comment. but wait... the sounds of the real world become samples the very moment they are registered. so basically they are samples too...

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 : 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...
