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.

    First of all... wow. I really thought for a half second of naivety that you were really on a beach and so on and so forth. Great little story to go with this. Charming melody, great harmonies and effects. I hope you get the radio play you so greatly deserve. ^_^

    Such a unique piece! It's different to normal ambient tracks because you've made it interactive in a way where you can actually feel like you're by the ocean. Fun listen :)

    Reply by BradoSanz

    First of all, thank you so much for actually making a meaningful comment, centralsdev :) I didn't compare it to anything really - just used my head and imagined what it would sound like if I were at the beach recording it with a mic, and this was the result :3

    It's been a while since I listened to one of your songs. This track makes me get upset with myself for that. I love all of your tracks as the vocals and lyrics are so well done. The lyrics on this particular track is just great and makes me want to go to the beach.

    The background sounds of the seagulls and your friends, just makes this track so much better. Like all of the songs I hear from you, this track has left speechless and very impressed. All in all great work man, and just keep them coming!

    Greetings, ER.

    I like the little trick you've played on many people here. It's almost a test of how much of a track description people can be bothered to read. This is almost the longest I've ever seen and mine tend to be reasonably long.

    You've also fooled people because it does sound pretty accurate and realistic in terms of the recording scene you initially describe.

    Congrats on a fun bit of soundtrack work.

    Maybe you could do another one that's a bit more audacious.

    So: I'm thinking you're supposedly out mountain climbing and you come across some guy and rescue him and then you both break into song.

    Or, you get some guy hold you up in the street with a gun demanding you hand over your stuff. Then you break into a song he happens to like and then he joins in and lets you go because he likes you. Maybe you go to a bar for drinks.

    Ideas to run with...

    Reply by BradoSanz

    Hey, thanks Static :P Those ideas are definitely audacious and I like that! I'll have to see what I can mix together next ;)

    hahaha this was awesome, i was reading the description as a listened so you had me fooled for a little while there hahaha its funny because if you didnt mention this was all done in your studio i would have totally believed this was recorded by the sea XD
    Amazing work man!

    Epic recording. This is pure track well done.
    What mic did you use.
    Your voice and mark`s voice sounds unbelievable together.

    I have some tracks if you and mark would be interested.
    Its not dance music but some other genres like rock and pop .

    Reply by BradoSanz

    Haha it was a recording I did in my studio. I do everything, from my nonexistent friend "Mark" to the wind being blown into the nonexistent stereo microphone I own (I used an AKG C214 for vocals and used my acoustic's "Anthem" pickup directly for the guitar recording) I got some free sound samples from a website online, which I used for the sound of the ocean and the people playing and just added subtle effects to the acoustics and vocals to give the music a stereo space :P None of this was ever played outside on a gazebo near the beach - though I wish it coulda been haha.

    Hi there ER.
    I really enjoyed this live acoustic recording and the one take. And also the background effects of the ocean and all.

    You don't get the same feeling from a daw, that warmness and closeness as from a bond you have and create with a real instrument.

    But a great simple piece that I faved!

    Blessings - B.

    Thanks Billydragon :P I would suggest you reread the description though! :)

    It does sound like being by the ocean. Though from inside the room day dreaming about it (like in some videos). The voice covers up the background in some spots and in live takes you can still hear the background and whatever voice over it (example would be you hear the beach sounds then you hear the voice in a small room). Sweet setup though, sounds like a fun jam for real. I felt like I was watching a scene from a movie more than being at that ocean. I Still dig it ER. Very nice work! Peace.

    Reply by BradoSanz

    Yeah, since it's a soundscape I wasn't too worried about getting it "perfect"; but it was still really fun to make :P

    Thanks for stopping in!

    You had me fooled 'til I read through the entire description! HAhaha good one ER! Looks like you fooled plenty ;) I told you these soundscapes are addicting! I've done quite a few horror themed ones :p You must live near the gulf of mexico? I grew up by the ocean but live like 50 miles inland now, mountains really but this area is plains, called Oxford plains. You may have heard of the race track Oxford Plains speedway, world famous short track, Grateful dead played there in the 80's. Keep up the good work! :D

    Reply by BradoSanz

    Yes I live by the Gulf :P I have yet to see mountains. I want to climb one some day. I love being immersed in nature, away from the smells and worries of the city life. And yes, I've heard of that place! You're very lucky :) Cheers and thanks for listening phatkatz4 :P

    This is simply a beautiful track man! Being someone who loves the beach and all things tropical, I gotta say this is quite refreshing. The harmonies between you and your friend are quite beautiful as well. The guitar playing is also solid. Overall great track!

So this is for Danke in the first place and then maybe for anyone who would like to fall asleep.:)...

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 : DO to the thief claiming that this music is hers
The story of the track is off for a minute.

Description : the other end of the scale from me, yep people, this is a ballad. its for all the people who have lost somebody long before their time was due,
i used my experience of tragic loss and how i hid my mental health issues that stemmed from it while writing it, its repetitive but has fresh verses
its to Matthias music Du Bist Nicht Mehr Hier almost the same title, He has suffered too that's why he wrote the music and dedicated it to his brother. i hope i have done it justice

Description : This track contains several loops, all of them are from looperman artists - listed below. I don't know if "ambient" fits well for it, but i get most loops from that category. :)
Inspired by the Final Fantasy series and my ex girlfriend. Hope you will enjoy it (not my ex! :D). As always, free to use for a song, any opinions-critics welcomed... UPDATE 2015.10.24.: improved audio quality - lower lows, higher highs. Now in 256kbps!

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 : Guys, I've Just looked at my old music archives.
Ive stumbled upon this free Vst called Piano one.
I have never experienced sounds so true to a real piano, Ive paid a lot of money to a very well-known company for such vst which Ive never used because it did not sound like a piano.
The music of this track is replicated; However, the piano sounds are done with this vst.
I thought to share this little gem with you guys.
