Description : I suppose I could have found a decent butterfly effect somewhere online but more fun trying to create something. the little fella sounds like he has wings made of aluminum but he is trying. he also convinced the mosquito not to blow up the track until the end. here is the image that inspired the work: http://audiosparksforart.com/project/tang-pollinating-butterfly/

    Fascinating work Dan, very creative and original. If I didn't know you made this tune I would have guessed it is your work. Interesting elements, a few elements caught me off guard in a good way. What I really admire about your music is how unpredictable it is, meaning anything can happen at any time of the song. That is a hard feat to meet. Congrats on another fabulous track brother.

    I appreciate your appreciation Pete. I'm happy about evolving a recognizable 'style' of sorts if that is true. - Hope to get back to a little more thru-composed as opposed to loop driven all the time. But yea - thanks very much.

    The bass line and awkward time signature makes this seem like a "Sinister march of the Insects". Don't get me wrong it's a brilliant idea and sounds awesome but scared the living shit out of me when I listened to it. I hate bugs!

    Good work though

    yea - I can rarely post loops because they are banned for not being in straight 4/4 time. I like the odd-meter stuff can't deny it. I was going for ambient effect mostly but I ended up with a couple of pretty scary sounds. Hope you are better now! Thanks for the listen and positive comment. Dan

    Very interesting.
    I love the weird side of creativity.
    Next time I see a flutterby as my granddaughter calls them it's going to be a whole new experience.
    There's a flutterby palace in North Wales and I stood watching a huge one tapping it's foot against the log it had landed on. Pointed it out to my wife and she said oh yes and look ... every other tap the opposite wing vibrates. Now I know why ... it'd been round your place!
    But next time you see a flutterby charging up it's solar powered wings watch for the foot tapping and think .... Is it one of those aluminium ones from Monsanto?
    I'm going to think of you and this place a lot this summer!
    Unusual and wonderful.

    it was a fine line between animating the butterfly and making a monster out of her (and the other insect sounds for that matter). yea - all the high self-esteem monarchs drop by my place for the latest moves, you are right. glad you got into it. thanks. Dan

    nice work... I see it a a pure rhythmic composition: not focused on harmony but solely on the rhythmic interactions of the little insects that can be found in the butterfly's world.
    maybe the connection with the butterfly is not so "obvious": we usually regard them as more "ethereal".
    but in general is a very interesting piece of music.
    you never cease to create new things... good!

    Reply by midisparks

    i had hoped for a kinder, gentler butterfly effect. but perhaps my frame of mind during the 'Tang' process did not permit it. I ended up with the 'aluminum winged butterfly' or just say the 'iron butterfly'! The track became something harder, edgier than I had imagined.

    But I am happy if I conveyed someething of the butterfly's perspective on her world. Thanks for your listen and considered comment mr. wolf.

    Well, I checked out the image and immediately rolled my eyes. I thought oh here we go a pretty butterfly song. lol.
    But you're track is a real piece of art!
    Well done. I got right into it.
    The bass created a real sense of paranoia for me or maybe I was just experiencing a flash back to my Rastafarian roots ;)


    Reply by midisparks

    wow - rastafarian roots. that is special for sure. yea - i'm trying to go somewhere other than the expected/stereotypical with these 'music for art' pieces and really happy if you connected with it a little. thanks very much. I appreciate your listen. Dan

    In German butterfly is called Schmetterling, which can be translated into something like "smash-ling". Not so innocent now, isn't it? Try to say Schmetterling in an aggressive manner, and it fits well with those aluminium wings :D :D :D . Interesting track you did, I love those weird tracks!

    Reply by midisparks

    yes - that is a revelation and some good support for my butterfly effect! thank you! Glad if you connected with this one a little bit. thanks for the listen. Dan

    Sounds very experimental...I would also join "the mosquito club", but who really knows the secret world of butterflies? Very interesting work...thanks for sharing!:)


    Reply by midisparks

    I'm surprised because I eliminated that mosquito sound from the version you heard. Well - the little devil is back so your club membership is not wasted. Thanks for checking this out. Regards. Dan

    You always have very nice and interesting sounds when I hear your tracks. The drums underline it even more. Very clear mix and great use of the panning synth. I agree with Danke that it sounds more like a lot of mosquitos flying around your head when walking through a warm and dense forest. Nevertheless the track feels like a nice picture and is well done!

    Reply by midisparks

    thank you mudhoen. i have been on that walk you describe a few times. but the butterfly insisted on a say in this track and I have at least temporarily exiled the mosquitos.

    Well put together...I'm with Danke on the Mosquito thing..love the sounds.

    Reply by midisparks

    yea - what I need is some kind of flutter sound for a butterfly - maybe a flutter flute - right now it is all about the mosquito. thanks for checking it out BeatMaker.

    Interesting interpretation of a butterfly Dan. I've never looked a butterfly and thought of it as ever being aggressive or industrious but I suppose at some time it has to go about his butterfly world taking the good as well as the bad.

    The drum part at the beginning I thought of as it's tiny heart beating and starting it's day. Then comes the stress and tension of the daily life of a butterfly, fighting winds, looking for a bite to eat and avoiding bug zappers.

    Thanks, that was different!


    Reply by midisparks

    I can see industrious - but aggressive - maybe in somebody's horror movie. and maybe this could be some music for that. thanks for the great comment, wayne. great to hear from you. regards - Dan

    Sounds good. This'd be great for a runway Lol, but looking at the other comments I can totally picture a butterfly hearing this on the daily haha. Pretty intense, I like it.

    Reply by midisparks

    I honestly don't know what a runway is - except the thing an airplane takes off from. I suppose a "flutter" effect might be more easily associated with a butterfly - but it is developing into a sort of insect inspired as much as butterfly inspired track. But I'm glad if you were feeling the butterfly. thanks for commenting. Dan

    Really cool Dan! Is this how the butterfly hears the world? That's what I think of looking at the pic and listening. I wonder how it looks through their eyes too!

    Reply by midisparks

    sights and sounds from the butterfly's view - yea - that's pretty much the concept. actually - Drew Relf has taken the threads and come up with a long "journey of the buttefly" sort of narrative which gets back to some gentler material and these harsh threads in the background. I'm sure you will see some of it posted on facebook pretty soon. thanks for stopping by Burt. I hope to propose a collab soon. Dan

    danke on Fri 26th Feb 2016 - 3 years ago

    For me it's the world of the mosquitos...:-)

    great catch of the moment though Dan...

    love it, Danke

    Reply by midisparks

    yea - you are right, Danke. It really has more of the buzzing insects about it than the silent butterfly. probably a flutter effect would be more easily associated with the butterfly. The track is morphing somewhat now - in a developmental stage - may come closer to a butterfly feel or depart all together. We shall see. Sometimes the track tells us what it wants. You know?

Description : inspired by art of Susana Boettner which reminds me of the three kings story of this time of year. three motives in the track vaguely allude to three characters, sometimes in monologue, sometimes dialogue. http://www.susanaboettner.com/losvisitantes/05.jpg

Genre is always tricky and I don't know genres very well so I usually go with weird. But I think I write in an orchestral style, albeit I have mostly abandoned traditional orchestral instruments.

The track is loosely cinematic, insofar as it describes a journey, with mystery, adventure, celebration along the way.

Description : A song I wrote over a guitar track that I found on YouTube. Link to the original track can be found below.

Have been attempting to write 2-3 songs over the past couple of months with little success, when this one just appeared out of nowhere.

It's a bit odd I guess (which is why I tagged it as weird) but I enjoyed creating and listening back to it, so here it is.

Thank you!

A link between two musical worlds quite different but united in this message of harmony.
"Silverpaw" (former Looperman) had in the depths of one of its hard drives, this arrangement that I made the past year: https://www.looperman.com/tracks/detail/120846
He decided to bring this theme, with a text and this voice ....
Very surreal but I really enjoyed ....

I hope it will be the same for you.

Thank you for listening.

Virus named Mobius 2.01b had for job to disable and copy all phone d.a.t.a. He was happy. All started with the uploading of this high risk virus on a music file named Mobius 2.01b and end with a future update to control every phones on earth. Yes every single unique phone on earth. He is still happy. Please take note even I put it in Electronic its somewhat a prototype genre and music. Any comment are welcome.
