Description : UPDATE 3/31/2016 - Did some work on the mix and master thanks to the advice of Crucethus and promenade2239. I knew something needed work, and it turned out I need some shifting in the time-space continuum. Thanks to everyone who commented so far!

Original DESC - Yes, I admit it... I fall down. Different circumstances and results each time, but it does happen. Got some inspiration in the last week or two, and left behind some other responsibilities for a while to make this track. Did a considerable amount of multisampling of a Realistic C1000 to add to the song. This is the first song I've finished which uses my modified Korg Monotribe. Also contains Microkorg (on glitch percussion and vocoder use), Yamaha ys-200, Zoom RT-123, and my modular synth doing circuit bent voice synth duties. Psychedelic, dark cold wave. EDIT: Now that I think about it, there were no virtual synths involved in this composition, but only virtual samplers and effects. Everything else was MIDI and hardware sound source. Thank you for listening! Please leave a comment and I will return the favor!

Sorry Spivkurl. I thought I had all of that info in my profile from 3 years ago. My bad. Thanks for letting me know I was slacking.
killaraybeats 22nd Jun 2016 15:44 - 8 years ago
@Spivkurl I'd like to take a shot at a different type remix.
Spivkurl replied 22nd Jun 2016 - 8 years ago
Thanks for your interest! However, I would like you to fill out your profile before I pass along the stems. Seems like a simple matter for a three year old member. Thanks again!

I haven't been around these parts in a couple years, and it's refreshing to hear your work again! Your post-arrangement work has improved dramatically too! This track is very well-placed sonicaly and clear, it seems.
Spivkurl replied 16th Jul 2016 - 8 years ago
Hey MYXD, good to see you stopping by! As far as post-arrangement goes, my recent songs have been composed with additions to the arrangement which are done as the equipment is recorded. It adds some reality and complexity which is difficult to obtain with just a DAW. I'm really glad you enjoyed listening! Have a good day!
vigwig 11th Jun 2016 21:15 - 8 years ago
I fall down all the time but I just lay there and groan. This vocal sounds like more fun. I like it. Like he said clean and unsquashed and a pin could drop and you'd hear it. You are a beacon to many you never knew. Good ob.
Spivkurl replied 24th Jun 2016 - 8 years ago
I seem to have found a few people who fall down after releasing this one! I generally can't remember what happens after I fall down, and I'm lucky when someone is there to fill me in! I've been taking great measures to help myself have less reasons to fall or fail. Your comment about the mix makes me very happy, that is something else I've been taking great measures on. The comment "You are a beacon to many you never knew" means a lot to me, as I've been taking to the streets locally to change my community, which claims to be an "inclusive" community. We will see where these changes lead us. Thank you for the continued support and friendship!
mezcel 31st May 2016 19:14 - 8 years ago
THis has some nice glitch elements. To me this has a "electro pop" / "synthpop" vibe

love that flat sounding kick, you have multiple kicks going on, but i like the most lo-fi one you have going on.
Spivkurl replied 10th Jun 2016 - 8 years ago
Thank you for again listening to one of my latest songs! I would agree with the synth pop reference, as I do like that sort of music. I like to think of many of my newer songs as being similar to New Wave, but I've been incorporating modern, DIY, as well as vintage electronic instruments with the more standard instruments that would be included in New Wave. That pretty well sums up a lot of synth pop as well. I did use many different instruments to make up the drum "kit." Can't say which would be considered the most lo-fi, possibly the monotribe, but that only shows up rarely in the track... the drums on that are so clicky that they are barely noticed at times. Thanks for the comment and listens!
Tumbleweed 26th May 2016 21:36 - 8 years ago
I cant honestly remember enough about the earlier mixes to offer much Spiv...and you know I`m not a good source of informed observation on the genre...Its just good..and when you combine the lyrics with the music its damn fine entertainment with yet another listen...and the mix sounds good to me...Ed
Spivkurl replied 4th Jun 2016 - 8 years ago
Hello again Ed! Thanks for taking to the new version, as it's definitely better... hence the earlier one doesn't matter much. I'm really looking forward to hearing more remixes of this as they roll in! "Damn find entertainment" is quite the compliment, I appreciate it!
DanGoldstein 26th May 2016 18:52 - 8 years ago
"I see sound!" nice!

Neat sounds.

You do a great job of sustaning the musical line from start to finish.

Very cool track! Number 1 fan! Fav (of course!)
Spivkurl replied 26th May 2016 - 8 years ago
Thank you for taking a listen and leaving your comment my friend! The statement; "You do a great job of sustaning the musical line from start to finish" made me wonder what you meant. I suppose I just found it difficult to figure out. I don't know why. I'm happy that you enjoyed listening! Thank you for the fave as well!
Mosaic 23rd May 2016 17:02 - 8 years ago
Hey Friend

Love this one, very different for sure but extremely catchy, listening to it this time on music pc so have the bass coming through which you miss listening too on laptop, sounding better this time around for sure...Great work matey..
Thank you for asking me to do a remix of this one, (Hope I have done it justice with remix)

you helped me get back to the loop, which was prob not going to happen anytime soon, so thanks...fav...Peace respect...mosaic...
Spivkurl replied 4th Jun 2016 - 8 years ago
Hey there Mosaic! It was good to hear from you on this song, as well as by email! I'm still really enjoying you remix, so thank you for doing that. Hope that the large amount of strife present on Looperman has not chased you away already. You are always such an asset to the community. Thank you much for leaving a comment here!
Modnex 21st May 2016 18:43 - 8 years ago
Interesting stuff here, Spiv! I really like the vocals you have here. Was the vocals recorded with that cool microphone you made? Its one thing when you make music, but another thing when you make music with instruments you constructed yourself, soo cool! Some parts of the song sounds a little bit Egyptian like. I picture pyramids, pharaohs and dancing cats.

Great work my friend, keep it up.
Spivkurl replied 3rd Jun 2016 - 8 years ago
Hey Modnex, good to hear from you! Happy that you enjoyed what you heard here! In this case, the vocals were recorded with a Marantz Superscope EC-5 which I picked up not too long ago. It's a similar type of microphone to what I built (cardioid electret condenser), but has only a single element and is powered from 1.5v DC instead of 3v. I got it for a steal, with the original case, clip and documents. I really like it for any sort of mono recording, it's very clear and it ignores a lot of background noise. The modular stuff in here is really the only instrument that I built from scratch, but the monotribe is modified both by someone else and myself. Since I've been working really hard on restoring the room which will be my second studio, I have been relaxing a bit in my musical work for the time being, ie not delving too deep into new builds. The key of the song is an Arabic mode, so I think that is what you are hearing. Thanks so much for leaving your comment!
TeeGee1965 21st May 2016 16:44 - 8 years ago
This is so complex and unusual, so many things happening... I think this is really good, especially from a technical point of view. A lot of electronic music is repetitive and looped, but this is a complex piece of art. Well done!
Spivkurl replied 1st Jun 2016 - 8 years ago
Thank you much for the positive words! I've been really enjoying the compositional process lately, and I'm happy that it shows. I like exploring the effect that certain limitations of notes, and the subsequent available intervals can have on a song. I really appreciate you taking a listen!
silverman 10th May 2016 09:10 - 8 years ago
Very unusual. Kind of circus theatrical. Sounds very complex like a lot of hard work went into this and there is so much going on yet it isn't crowded it isn't squashed mushy. It's actually open and spacious. Very creative and works brilliantly. How I don't know because there's definitely a touch of the asylum here.
Spivkurl replied 31st May 2016 - 8 years ago
Thank you Silverman for another enjoyable comment to read! You are right, there was a lot of work put into this, but it was worth it. The "circus theatrical" comment is interesting, as I have been known to mimic circus/carnival type sounds in the distant past, but not so much consciously any more. I have however been watching the film "Repo: The Genetic Opera" obsessively for the past couple of years, and there are some things in there which may fit that description as well. I've tried hard to expand the dynamics of my songs recently, and I think I'm getting the hang of it. I've never been in an asylum, but if I acted upon all of my urges, I probably would be... since I have the disability to warrant it. Who knows?! Thanks much for listening!
Darknives 29th Apr 2016 19:03 - 8 years ago
Sounds kind of unique, kudos to your for using all your hardware instead of opting for virtual everything.
Spivkurl replied 31st May 2016 - 8 years ago
Hey thanks for listening and commenting! I still use computers of course, and I do like some virtual stuff, but it is far to easy to think that a piece of software will turn us into rich famous musicians. I've pretty much always been making noise with real objects, and the more I do it, the more fulfilled I feel as an artist. I appreciate you stopping by!
mudhoen 28th Apr 2016 21:38 - 8 years ago
For what i can recall from the earlier version I think it is improved a lot. Although it was already good. It now sounds pretty proffesional. It might not be anybodys taste but I like it a lot. Especially the fact that you use hardware. Love the sounds coming out of it!
Spivkurl replied 30th May 2016 - 8 years ago
Thank you for taking a listen to the updated version! To be honest, the last thing I would ever want to be considered is "professional." I do take it as a compliment though. I'm happy with how this turned out though, and I'm hoping to have several independent remixes flowing in soon. Thanks much!

Hi there Spivkurl,you really have developed an original out there compositional voice with your musical journey,i could tell it was you straight away with my eyes shut-this is not easy to achieve in todays climate.I admire your vision.Great track sir.

Compliments Rhodesy :)
Spivkurl replied 22nd Apr 2016 - 8 years ago
You are too kind with your words! To be myself, if anything, is definitely paramount in almost everything that I do - so it means a lot to me. At this point, I feel that I have more tools at my disposal than I will ever be able to fully immerse myself in, and it is somehow comforting. It's somehow like a dream of youth in the studio, which is comforting in, as you put it, "todays climate." It's interesting that you mention "eyes shut," as that is definitely meant to be a large part of enjoying my music. Audio can be sensed very deeply when other senses are deprived. One thing lacking about youtube, I suppose. Thank you very much for the pleasing comment!
DijamMusic 19th Apr 2016 23:24 - 8 years ago
Hello Mate.
Wow this is another excellent work and I'll be downloading and faving it for sure, Great track! The lyrics are brilliant too.
Really well done to you mate.
Spivkurl replied 26th May 2016 - 8 years ago
Thank you jamid for the nice comment! I get the feeling that this is some of my best composition so far, especially after hearing the essential parts exported to midi and then played back only with a general midi piano... it sounded really cool and interesting that way! The lyrics mostly are relating to experiences having epileptic seizures, but also relate to a general expression of failure... something which everyone can relate to. Thanks buddy!
los21 14th Apr 2016 19:03 - 8 years ago
Please to meet you Spivkurl, seems u have a lot of friends and likeness toward your craft, I can see why, excellent track you have here bring me back to the 80's nice, keep up the good work. And what ever u going trough peace is just around the corner, keep your head up bro.
Spivkurl replied 21st May 2016 - 8 years ago
Your words are important to me, and it felt good to read them. I do have a love affair with many musicians from the eighties. I also have the instruments to thank for these sounds, as there is nothing else like them. I sincerely hope that peace is in our future. Have a good day!
toastedavalanche 8th Apr 2016 17:31 - 8 years ago
Hi Spiv. This has a really cool avant garde approach that leaves you guessing at where the track will go next. Really keeps you on your toes. You have a very unique vocal style, it makes the track all the more surreal; which I like. Keep up the creative work, I'm intrigued to hear what you come up with next.

Spivkurl replied 21st May 2016 - 8 years ago
Hey friend, thanks for the supportive words, which were also interesting to read. To be honest I'm intrigued what will be next as well, as there seems to be some sort of precipice approaching. You can fall upwards if reality is upside down. The use of the word "surreal" makes me feel that I have done the right thing placing this in the "psychedelic" genre. Appreciate it! Have a good day!
RogueAi 8th Apr 2016 04:54 - 8 years ago
Nice, loving the bass and synth sequences. I'd love to do a mix of this. Cold? It almost seems warm to me... it's the bass and and the synth sequences like it's almost happy... sounds like a major scale or something... but of course the vocals and the somewhat odd timing of the drums really makes it... wrong... in a good way.
Spivkurl replied 13th May 2016 - 8 years ago
Hey RogueAi, I'm so sorry that it took this long to respond! Have been deep into renovations and spring planting/harvest. I think the warmth is definitely there in the recordings and mix, so I understand what you mean. It's interesting you picked out major scale, as this is actually composed in an arabic mode. It shows through more in the synth duets in the middle. The drum timing was intended to give a "walking with purpose" feel, combined with a stumbling clumsiness... which, I must admit, is a common combination when getting around. If you are still interested in doing a mix, I can try to work in time to make some stems. Shouldn't be a problem. Just contact me by commenting or sending a pm. Thank you much for listening and leaving your words!
Dennel 7th Apr 2016 20:51 - 8 years ago
Spivkurl, it's been a long time my friend, how are you? Amazing track I can truly appreciate the time and effort spent as a musician putting this track together. From the Zappa-ish vocals to what reminds me of early Kraftwerk musically.
I enjoyed it, fun track.

All The Best

Spivkurl replied 13th May 2016 - 8 years ago
Hey buddy, thank you for taking the time to listen to this song! Much appreciated! It is taking me a lot more time and effort to create songs lately, you are right. My process is becoming a lot more involved, and I think that the songs are more musically complex as a result. Now I need to work on doing vocal takes without a blood alcohol level! I really should try to listen to more zappa, as it's something I've never been to deep into. I have begun taking Kraftwerk comparisons as a compliment, since they are well liked it seems... I've only recently been getting acquainted with their deeper tracks. Thanks for the kind words! Have a good day!
VicaMOOR 5th Apr 2016 06:30 - 8 years ago
I like how you mixed your vocals. It doesn't get lost in the production. I don't think the mix is too crowded, but to add on to what crucethus wrote, I would mix this by centering the vocals and panning the rest of the instruments to one side or the other and give the vocals a touch of reverb, to give it a spacious feeling. But, overall, I think this is novelty and a fun song to listen to. I'm not sure what inspired the lyrics, but it has a slight morbid feel to it lol
Spivkurl replied 24th Apr 2016 - 8 years ago
Thank you for listening and leaving your words, it means a lot to me. It's interesting, the reactions to the mix, because the things you mentioned have already been done in this mix... aside from panning "the rest of the instruments," as I basically never pan bass and kick drums, except for temporary effects. I'm pretty happy with how the mix is now. As far as the inspiration for the lyrics, it is mostly a combination of two things... specifically, it is my tendency toward having seizures on a fairly regular basis. Epilepsy and similar disorders were often referred to as "the falling disease" in ancient times. And, more generally, the words refer to failures, both large and small. I found the "I fall down" line to be a good simple representation of admittance of failure. I'm happy that you enjoyed listening. Thank you again!
Musicante 2nd Apr 2016 21:17 - 8 years ago

BradoSanz 2nd Apr 2016 21:15 - 8 years ago
Well THIS was a fun listen. The drums really disoriented me in a fun way at the start haha. Your vocal is so unique HAHA. Made me listen all the way through. There are a ton of ear treats throughout this entire song. I think the reason its addicting to listen to is the fact that it's so different. Those patches are so cool as well! Has a very happy vibe that I appreciate. At some spots I got an almost tribal feel with those chord progressions towards the 2 minute mark. Great work, Spiv. This is one of my favorite works from you. Keep em' coming!

Spivkurl replied 22nd Apr 2016 - 8 years ago
I really appreciate the positive support in your comment! It was a strange song to write and create, but I'm happy with how it turned out. Sorry it took a bit to reply, but I'm glad I have the motive to visit your profile today!
mudhoen 1st Apr 2016 21:15 - 8 years ago
And yet again you found a way to make creative chaos :p. It is very glitchy and the sounds come in unexpected but they give it a fun thrill to listen to. Good jib!
Spivkurl replied 16th Apr 2016 - 8 years ago
Hey there, thank you for leaving you comment on this piece! Between the circuit bent modular stuff and the microkorg percussion, it does sound a bit chaotic... they weren't patches which react in the normal way. Fun though. I'm glad you had fun listening! Thanks again!
Salook 1st Apr 2016 20:52 - 8 years ago
some wicked stuff bro! very acid and totally awesome! great arrangement, new album work? was loooking for download!
Spivkurl replied 16th Apr 2016 - 8 years ago
Hey Salook! It was great to hear from you on this track! I respect both your opinions and you artistry. Most things which I complete to a satisfying level end up on an album for me, so I'm assuming this will be the first one finished for the new album... Might be up to a year or so to finish it though. I do have a special place in my heart for acid, and there are so many new tools to work with now that it becomes even more fun to create. Hope that download ended up working for you. Thank you very much!
Tumbleweed 1st Apr 2016 04:25 - 8 years ago
we all fall down Spiv,....but I have never created anything musical as a result...extra cool (and a bit unusual for me) but then it is a Spivkurl mix...and as usual its both unique and interesting/entertaining listening up my way...Ed
Spivkurl replied 15th Apr 2016 - 8 years ago
Hey buddy, thank you for the listen and comment! Glad you caught the second version! I can admit that many of my episodes on the floor have influenced my songwriting, though nothing quite as specifically related as this. It also applies to general failure in the face of risk, which is something which everyone faces. This one fell into place nicely, and required very little editing, which helps alot. I'm loving the new superscope EC-5 microphone that I grabbed recently... pleasing range. I really appreciate you leaving your words!
crucethus 1st Apr 2016 01:34 - 8 years ago
Much better my friend. Hey just a thought, when you say down for the second or third time, could you add a delay on that in stereo, that would be cool. I love when you say "I see sound". I love the I fall down @ 3:44 with that filter process. Also another silly idea, what if you got a female vox to say "get your ass up" every time you said I fall down. That could be a fun juxtaposition ehh?
Spivkurl replied 15th Apr 2016 - 8 years ago
Thanks for taking another listen to this track my friend! While I do dig the style of mixing and composition which you have mention as suggestions, I must admit that I really wanted to try something different regarding spot delays. I have used them a lot lately, and wanted a bit more consistency this time. The back up vocals is a funny idea, but maybe not appropriate for the intentions of this project. The microkorg really came through on vocoder duties this time, and helped me be a bit spontaneous. Again, I enjoyed reading your comment on the update! Thanks!
joecramer 31st Mar 2016 19:56 - 8 years ago
I am not sure what you had done really but it works well :)
Right now it sounds in a way much more "cleared up"
kind of less raw. In a way i have the feeling that it doesn't sound so much 80's like the last version but that can be just an error with my today perception. Can it be that the vocals sound better and/or more in the foreground now?
I would say you done a good update cause it was a very pleasant listen. And for this updated version you got a fav from my side.

stay tuned
Spivkurl replied 8th Apr 2016 - 8 years ago
Thanks for taking a listen to the update as well! Bringing the vocals more to the foreground is definitely one of the things I focused on, plus enhancing the vocal effects. I also did some additional automation to improve the transition from section to section. Cleared up the low-mids slightly. Also did some very detailed alignment to improve the phase of everything. After that, some subtle adjustments to the mastering were in order. I'm glad that you found it to be an improvement! Thanks for listening!

Hey there! Sorry it took a while to get this far in the list of comments! Very happy you enjoyed listening, and I hope you took a listen to the updated version as well... it's significantly more pleasing. I really don't know much 90's techno, mostly industrial when it comes to electronic from that era. I have been more influenced by German music and culture of late, so that makes perfect sense. Been having a lovely time in the studio during the moments I get to spend there. Thank you for listening!
joecramer 29th Mar 2016 19:56 - 8 years ago
Hello Spivkurl
Another very creative track from your hands.
Kind of Punky electro speed wave. Has a lot of 80's feeling for me but only to the good offroad stuff from that time. I really love the speed and the freshness, cause it fits cool to the little melodies inside. Cool lyrics by the way. The synth work is great like always. So much good stuff is going on that i can understand that you had to much things in your head and hadn't no brain power over for walking without falling down :)

I really enjoyed this track and it stays still in my mind and i listen to it 10 minutes ago :) thats a good sign

stay tuned
Spivkurl replied 8th Apr 2016 - 8 years ago
Thank you Joe for the friendly comment on the early version of the song! I'm really happy with how all the hardware recordings turned out this time, and the vocals on the new microphone as well. Your genre/style interpretation works for me. I love post punk and 80's stuff for the most part! Makes me happy that you liked this one. I'll reply to your other comment next. Thanks again!
promenade2239 29th Mar 2016 18:57 - 8 years ago
Hi again. Over last months by listening to your tracks my perception of an electronic music has definitely changed. It might sound silly but I just have realized this simple fact the moment I played your track a moment ago.

My favorite part of the instrumental is towards the end when the whistle sound appear. I really like the way how you manage to construct the song using very little and apparently unrelated elements. I see cru remark about the 'grande vocal' and am trying to picture how it would sound when performed using 'empty street' or let's say 'vintage guitar' kind of reverb. The synth riffs and little wiggly melodies are very sweet!
Spivkurl replied 8th Apr 2016 - 8 years ago
Hey friend! Thank you for listening to this track, and for listening to the new version over on soundcloud! I'm really happy to have had some influence on the electronic side of your music listening and creation. It really doesn't get much better than that! I'm quite fond of the section you mentioned with the the rhythm taken mostly by the zoom RT-123 (with the whistle and stuff). This part alone made it almost irresistible to do an "extended dance mix" sort of thing, but I have refrained so far. As far as the vocal effects go... I have never been interested in very heavy use of reverb, on vocals or anything else really. I find that most reverbs can easily shift the perception to a more ambient or cinematic soundscape. The vocal sound I go for usually is more akin to early post punk recordings, in the vein of Joy Division or early Cure. There was a dryness in many of those vocal recordings which I think suits me, and my range is very similar to Ian Curtis... though I'm sure he would have expanded in range had he not died so young. I have rarely composed in an arabic mode before, but I think it lends itself to the intricacies of the synth interplay, as well as the more microtonal vocal parts. I always appreciate your ideas. Hope to be able to contact you soon!
theHumps 29th Mar 2016 12:33 - 8 years ago
Hope you are well Pat, sounds like things are going on. Take care of yourself.

I agree with Cru but you already have that issue in mind to take care of it. It is a very cool track man.

I fall down too, ha! Too many concussions gave me balance issues and I don't feel my feet due to a nerve condition. It makes life interesting, that's for sure.

Spivkurl replied 2nd Apr 2016 - 8 years ago
Ha ha... I've had several strangers, friends and family all tell me I need help recently. I've been there, and done that... been there don't want to go back. I just need to protect myself from the brain degeneration which seems to be afflicting everyone. If I remember my lessons learned, then I'll be as safe as anyone.

Hope that like the new version of this track. None of the performances were changed, only a slight stripping down and some remixing/mastering. Some people seem to think the vocals have a dull sheen... I think this is probably due to two things: I was in a lower register than I have been recently, and it was intentional... and this is the first time I've used a new microphone I got, it's an old EC-5 superscope. I actually really like the sound of it! Sounds like you have a similar condition to me. I have had more head injuries than I can remember, all the way back to three years old. I'm sorry you don't feel your feet, that sucks. I have more trouble with visual memory on a normal day, but those seizures are not fun. Thank you for taking a listen! Have a great day!

Thanks bud! I appreciate you always popping in to hear my tracks! The new update is definitely an improvement. This one was a big challenge to mix... who knows maybe I haven't gotten it right. It sounds cool in v2 though. Thanks again for the feedback!
bitronix 29th Mar 2016 02:03 - 8 years ago
Great track! The lyrics are pretty great.
On the first part of the song, it sounds similar to "Scribble" by Puppet and EDEN Project, but then when the first part of the lyrics came in, the tune somewhat resembles me of "Clock" by Coldplay but then it kinda got unique :3
Anyways, nice track. I can't feedback since I really don't know what all of the instruments or hardwares of what you have used works. I'm just gonna say it's super awesome!
Keep being awesome..
- Cheers
Spivkurl replied 1st Apr 2016 - 8 years ago
Hey friend, thank you for your listen and comment! I hope you take a few minutes to hear the updated mix/master, as I think it is better overall. I don't think I remember hearing "Scribble before, and I can't say I know any Coldplay songs off hand. They're popular though, so I take it as a compliment. As for the hardware parts, I'm most proud of the modular patch, which was quite simple, but incorporated my VC3T circuit bent talking teacher module... haven't gotten it to sound quite that cool before! The vocoder part from the microkorg also turned out pretty nice, and is showcased a bit better on the new mix. Thank you for your support!

So I listened with my wife. And I and she felt the mix is crowded. I wanted to hear your voice in a more grande effect. There needs to be more compression and stereo reverb on that exquisite vox that separates it from the electronic muck. It's a really good tune, but it needs a better mix IMHOP.
That's my honest take and I would hope you would want nothing less my friend.

You and your wife are entirely correct, and I kind of realized it before uploading. It's been such a strange few days that I just could not wait any longer. I honestly feel like I have no idea what is going to happen next, and that is an unfamiliar feeling for me. I too feel that the mix is not complete. It has been a challenge. Will work on it soon. Thank you for the honest feedback!

Oooops, sorry Spiv....just now I realised that my talk about downloading was premature....damn !:)

Orlando51 28th Mar 2016 23:54 - 8 years ago
Yes Spiv....quite some time has passed since your last upload and now it's obvious that it was well worth the wait
and I'm sure one day I'll be making this sort of stuff!
I can hear plenty of creativity and inventiveness has been put into this but that's the fact we are already well acustomed to ! And your specific vocal delivery once again provides that a bit 'off the wall' mood which lifts the psychedelia on a new exciting level ! I see the existing technology you deal with serves you very well, but that's another story and I'm not so much of a techy type to dig deeper into it ! No matter what, this is another excellent work and I'll be downloading and faving it for sure !:)

Compliments and respect______Orlando

Hello my friend Orlando! Thank you for taking a listen to this one! It turns out that it wasn't quite up to standards, and I've updated the mp3 as of today. Took a little work to improve it, but it was worth it. I'm happy that you enjoyed the vocal delivery, as it seemed to flow better than usual. My technology is seriously becoming overwhelming, when considered alongside my other responsibilities... I could lose my self in those circuits. I would love to hear what you think of the new version! Thank you again for all your support!

Description : OK, I finally managed to find a song name, so here it is. But the genre is still open. WTF is it? World? Trip? Trance? Rock? psychedelic? .

I started this song with the wahwah background track, I think I wanted to go in the triphop direction but when I played with it and tried out things I added some Tabla sounds from the available sound library of the cubase software to it, just to get a feel for it. It sounded right somehow, and so it developed from there. As before, we did the work on wikiloops band section: bhunt1 (Brian) on Bass added his track, and rp3drums (Raymond) on drums (one straight drum track, and one para-diddle track). I then added several more guitar tracks.

So I would be happy to listen to your comments and advice, and if I get a good suggestion for name and genre I will change it. Cheers, TG :D

Description : Psychedelic, Eastern, dark dance/jazz/fusion based around my cello playing plus minimal other instrumentation. Two sections of electric guitar, one of Fender Rhodes, one synth pad, some swirling female vocal samples and one sub synth bass. Apart from multiple drum loops and programmed acoustic drumkits, everything else is cello, including most of the weird sounds.
