Description : OKEY so I made yet an other update, there is some distortion I can't get rid of unfortunately. Also messed up the arrangement a bit. Tried to mix and master, how does it sound? '''''''' Hey loopers, hope you all are doing fine!
This is an update on the first version, sounding quite different.
Virginia Slim and Future Analysis on vocals - thanks for sharing guys!
A drum loop from gd7414 and the rest is mine. Thanks for listening.

    OK yes there it is. Nice panning , nice spatial sounds, better control on the Piano re-verbs. Vocals sound nice, bass is better and the percussion fits well. Minimalist perfection. Only thing I would do different is at $;$7 drop the piano and let the vox go accapella and only at the very end do that nice synth thing to end it with the final vocal (sting) Great job though very nice

    Hi Steve and thanks again for the feedback! I'm really not satisfied with this one, I accidently compressed away all the dynamics, at least in my ears. But it was a great lesson to try to fix it anyway.
    And I'm glad you enjoyed it!

    Maybe I'll have an other go some day and tweak it even more.

    hello again again:)

    It's great that you updated this one in a short time. Impressive how it is different

    0:20 - very nice bassline, it sounds like a guitar. I do not like the synth on the left channel very much - it is filling the harmony but somehow it could sound brighter/sharper, at least to me.
    0:50 - introducing single piano riff was good and it corresponds nicely with the vox
    1:09 - there' is a slight distortion on the vocal track, probably caused again by the compression.
    0:17 - your piano sounds like played from the distance and it has some 'pumping' qualities in this particular mix context. Which plugin did you use? Maybe it is good to reduce the reverb and delay. You can also render the single piano track without the effects then import the mixdown and work with the audio only. I do that a lot. The entire project will be definitely played much more stable inside your DAW when you remove plugins.
    The section starting from around 1:17 may need some adjustments. Snare drum could be louder as well as percussions.
    1:58 - new synth but it has quite similar color to the bassline. You can always find some fitting funky guitar loop or something similar here. It might help to fill the space and change positively the feel of the music. .
    2:37 - kick is nice but you can introduce some other elements too. There is a synth from 2:50 but it again needs more presence (in my opinion). To me the vocal sounds wide - the rest quite narrow. Also you might consider enhancing hihats and other percussions.

    Why do not play let's say a bassline and piano tracks only for example? Then maybe try observe (by ear) the actual space in the frequency range available for each instrument and see how they eventually 'clash' inside the mix. You can somehow separate them. It might be difficult because you tend to use too much of reverb and delay effects. Did you equalize instruments using eq-plugin's presets? It may help a lot - I use presets for eqing sometimes as well.

    I hope some of this is useful. Those are just my opinions so do not take it too seriously haha

    Congratulations on developing the arrangement into such a nice thing. I enjoyed listening!
    Best, Alex

    Hi Alex, ha ha you really are dedicated to music, I can tell. Thanks a lot for all the advice and giving me an idea of what to do with this.
    I tried to fix the distortion and pumping issues with mixing down again, rendering to audio files and panning and rearranging and...puuuuuh also tride my hand on a simple mastering with the FL Limiter and...oh no now I forgot the name of the other plug in. Anyway - the result isn't that good but I really, really learned some new things! So it was definitely worth the effort, and kind of fun also.
    So thanks again.

    panning instruments will help with the overwhelming of each other. Each instrument should get it's own space. Like double the piano track for example, then pan them out 40 percent each R and L. I double the drums and pan 20 percent R and L.Vocals center. bass center or 10 percent panned L and R to widen it. All personal preference as for how much, which instrument ect. but it helps. Practice makes perfect :p Sounds good. Vocals line up nicely, and I know that can be a challenge sometimes! :D

    Thanks! I tried to fix the issues.
    It's not sounding that good anyway but I learned a lot!

    hello SJ

    Very fine work on this one! You are making a significant progressions with your music and I entirely agree with all crucethus' remarks. I want add the 'pumping' issue overkill. It is noticable at 0:50 and 1:04 when excessive compression affects the mix.
    At least this is what I can hear on headphones. Also I'd love to have more dynamics and natural presence of the instruments but that's just my prefference.

    Apart of all that your choice of vocals in fine and I really liked the entire arrangement. It is a lovely song. Best, Alex

    Reply by SeriouslyJoking

    Hi Alex, nice to see you here!
    Pumping issue - noticed. I'm trying to improve this today. the problem is my CPU, it's already clipping in the DAW...hard to fix anything.
    More Dynamics noted also, I'll try.

    I love the arrangement in this track. You strip it back and throw it all back in at the right moments. The play between the vocals and the piano is what really makes the track so interesting. Definitely a favorite.

    Hey SJ
    What I like: 1. The intro is very eclectic and what I like in a song that I personally like to listen too.
    2. You have started to develop a better sense for arranging in a tasteful way. To explain that I still hear your distinctive piano sound with the slap delay but it sits much better in the mix now and it adds to the composition and doesn't overwhelm it as in some of your earlier creations, bravo, you kept a distinctive trait and made it a strength in your work now.
    3. You fit the vocals in perfectly timing wise and in the mix.
    What I would like to see different:
    1. There is a lot of dynamic compression which hurts the delicate musical sounds you have placed in the piece. like that sweet oboe sounds a bit choppy with the delay of the piano and such.
    2. Though getting better I would like to hear more distinctive bass-lines throughout the piece. I heard some sub bass and hints of bass here and there.
    3. Your choice of vocals is not very inspiring to me, but that's just my personal taste I guess. I think for your style of composing I want to hear a vocalist who can belt it out of the park, but I realize that we won't find that easily on the pella pages. (no offense to Virginia slimm)

    Over all it's a great job you did on this one and just a pleasure to hear your sounds and choices getting better and better. Good Work.

    Reply by SeriouslyJoking

    Thanks Steve for the advice!
    Yes there is big issue with some of the sounds overwhelming all the others, and the bass line is totally underneath everything else and nonexisting at the moment. I'll try to fix this!

    Cheers =)

    Hej igen Orlando, and thank you!
    The minute I got my computer back with a DAW in it I started again. It's horrible without composing, listening is not enough.

    Just downloaded your brilliant song - thanks!

Description : Today's six track recording of a live song which I've been practicing for several days. I broke many of my own rules when getting this to the product it is now. Times have been rough around here, with pressure building from all sides. You can feel it in the air, and in all the people. I can only hope that after the US election, some of the pressure releases. All tracks recorded simultaneously - Vocals via my 100 Proof Microphone, Monotribe, Beatstep, two modular synth tracks (one beatstep controlled and one by my four step sequencer), Zoom RT-123, 2xKawa circuit bent drum box, Boss RV-3 reverb/delay.

Description : This if the final mix for all the instrumentation. And yes we're breaking quite a few conventions here. I like my diminished scales.

Meter:12/2 (mostly)
key:A locrian (mostly)
took a whole year and around 200 audio tracks to nail this


Some guitar parts (the good ones) by Couch Potatoe
one loop - Alen9r (user) Tropical

Description : Hello all, finally got around to polishing this track, which came from a collab with FarM (known on here as honkytonk). He provided me with some drum and bass work, and I came back with a demo that was essentially what you are hearing now. I just fixed the tuning and some pops at transitions. The tuning basically thwarted our collab I think, because without really remembering I played the guitar parts tuned to 432 Hz *** ***
and left all the other instruments at 440 Hz as a result...heh. Sounded much better after fixing that. Anyway it's got some dubstep and industrial most obviously. Yet another song I unconsciously ripped off from Skinny Puppy. Thanks for taking a listen! You can get the new Spivkurl album "Charting The Anomaly," which includes this track at the We Are...

Description : My grandmother was from Belarus. She was the lone survivor of her family after the Waffen SS massacred everyone in her village during a retreat from the Red Army. She escaped soviet occupied Belarus & through a series of wranglings by the international red cross, found a family to adopt her in New Jersey in 1947. She was 14 years old then. She was the strongest person I ever knew & I miss her terribly. This song is for her.

Description : I recorded this song several weeks ago, live in studio. It was a very spontaneous reaction to some experiences and interactions only an hour or so before.

I recorded the audio tracks, as well as a video on my old digital camera. The video has been up on youtube for a while:

This was recorded with my 100 Proof microphone, Eat Lead Copper modular synth, Breaking Blue tabletop synth, modified Yamaha DD-20, and Zoom RT-123.

In the last couple of days, I finally got around to mixing the audio I had recorded into a better quality rendition. The stems were used as is, simple being mixed a bit and mastered.

Have fun listening!

Description : Here is a new Spivkurl track for all of you to check out! My thought process interprets this as industrial gothic, but it's open to external interpretation. This song's sounds were almost entirely sampled from equipment which I hand soldered, whether it be synthesizer builds or circuit bending. The lead vocals were recorded with the new microphone which I built in the past few days, and I'm happy with the way it interacts with my voice. In fact the only piece of gear used that I didn't build was the microphone for the hook vocals... and they are meant to be unintelligible, as they were recorded spontaneously with a patch I called a Spivocoder (on my modular synth). Uptempo and aggressive, it's definitely my sort of industrial. Please give me your opinions if you have the time! Thanks!

Description : Updated 6 May 2017 - I took a bit of advice from OViea91 in order to enhance the reverb field of the vocals, and I also worked to tame some harsh high end in order to allow the low frequencies and dynamics to shine through more. I think it is an improvement. Downloads allowed now! 21 April 2017 - Here is my latest song, which begin from two directions at once. The lyrics began as a sort sentence written on a calendar photograph, and the music began as my entry to the FL studio "Sytrus Only" competition. I finished the vocals completely freestyle, using my DIY 100 proof microphone. All of the sound design is still the original entry, and thus uses only the Sytrus plugin on FL studio. The arrangement barely changed from the original instrumental (to accommodate the vocals), but the mixing and mastering was updated slightly (since the competition did not allow any effects at all). Being observant can be a real bitch sometimes when you're out there in the world, though sometimes an idea like this can be the flip side of the coin. The song also started me thinking about the literal difference between "Earth" and "World." One seems specific, and one general... though I think that the generalisation can add to the longevity of the relevance of an idea such as this. Thank you for listening!

Description : The results of one of my most intense recording sessions to date. I don't think I've explored a single key this deeply ever before. (G minor for those of you wondering) I pulled out my old Epiphone Les Paul, which I've rebuilt and customized over the years. Typed the original lyrics for the song on a couple text message drafts in my phone, then expanded upon them. Has some dubstep elements which are obvious, but it's at a higher tempo. So I guess there's some gothic and industrial in there too. Thanks for taking a listen! You can get the new Spivkurl album "Charting The Anomaly," which includes this track at the We Are...

Description : This is one sexy track. Bordering NeuroFunk.. I made this heavily sleep deprived and exhausted within a few hours.. Getting to grips with mixing again, how is it on your end? I'm also feeling some tom toms in the intro.. Maybe.. Best enjoyed with headphones :)

Description : Drawing on my favourite bands this demo fuses pulsing electronic beats with raw electric guitar, horror movie sound clips and a bit of my singing!

My next track will feature loops from Looperman so please follow me to hear it first!

Description : Here's a song that I wrote with my friend. I tried to make a gritty and weird song that also included using my voice as a soundscape. Some sounds are simply me blowing into the mic.I put an insane amount of delay on the vocals and pitch shifted them down 2 semitones as well as adding distortion. Enjoy!

Music:Rick Joanisse/Ty Dumoulin

Description : A sort of Bonobo-meets-Faithless track with woodwind from MrMosely. I don't really know the genre; but sounds like a mix of industrial and chill out. A simple song (Simpleton!!!) but hopefully it works for you guys... consider it a new years song/birthday song (ya, im 12 now!!)

Description : The title felt a little weak, hence the change.
It's finished! The mix is far, far better, I've added some extras and brought out some sounds that weren't coming through previously. D'ya think it's gig ready?

Description : I used Serum and Sylenth1 to create all the synths and basslines. I used random percussion samples for the drums. It's not dubstep, and it's not Drum and Bass, but it's elements are heavily drawn from both to create an experimental industrial track in it's own class. It's heavy, aggressive, and driving. Some will like it, others won't. As always, mixing tips, suggestions and advice is welcome. Take care. V.
