    Nice trippy, squelchy, synthy intro, I think I would be much more inclined to listen to this rather than 'Easy for Me' whilst tripping, so the psychedelic genre is very fitting ;)

    Solid bouncy groove in this, with your trademark vocals. I always comment on your mixes even though there's no need as they are always spot on!

    I can't really remember listening to any of your tracks with you playing guitar... but its a nice background addition, adds atmosphere and would like to hear more!

    Good job once again mate!

    Hello again my friend! I agree that this is far more in the psychedelic genre than my other recent track. I was thinking of Jefferson Airplane, The Doors, and The Cure mainly, but it seems that New Order was an incidental inclusion. I have been working on my focus when recording vocals lately, so that I can induce far less edits, no matter what the reason. It seems to be working, as my latest tracks have little edit work on the vocal parts. Regarding the guitar - people often do not notice my guitar parts, and mistake them for more synth or virtual work. Guitar is one of my earliest instruments... with the first picture of me with a guitar being around 3 years old. I love the instrument. I love any instrument really. Even though I am retired with disability, my work in the community is taking me away from my music, but success in this will ensure the future of everyone, including myself. Thank you for the listen and comment!

    You have a way with the words Spiv..and the way you deliver them is right on with the musical vibe...I think I catch little glimpses of some of my early recollections of synth tunes (my wife used to play it really loud in the car) always it is really well is unique (and I`m sure I have said that several times before) and that in itself is an unusual achievement today...perhaps you are the only one-of-a-kind on a planet that the species went extinct on...Cheers...Ed

    Ed, you are far too kind! It was an important song for me to complete, and as is often the case, songs like that are difficult for me to share with anyone. Sometimes I wonder about being one of a kind, and all I need to do is think of my wife... we share too many feelings and ideas for that to be true. In reading about clovers, white clovers specifically, I learned that the world record for most leaflets on a clover is 86. I think that my upbringing regarding the rarity of a simple four leaf clover was simply overstated. Hopefully this is true, otherwise something odd is going on in our backyard the last few years! Thank you for your listen, and the discussion! Have a great day!

    One thing I love about your music is that it's completely unique! Immediately it's obvious who the artist is. Nothing to add, just keep doing your thing.

    Reply by Spivkurl

    That is quite a compliment! Thank you for that! In all honesty, a lot of the songs that I make, I can't help but hear strong correlations with a lot of the music which I've been listening to for a long time. This leads me to the conclusion that very few people on Looperman listen to the sort of thing which I like. If this weren't the case, they would probably be mentioning those musicians, instead of mentioning ones who I am only vaguely familiar with when making comparisons. I guess I should take advantage of this, instead of worrying that I'll be accused of ripping of my favorite artists! Thank you for always showing up to the party!

    There's always a feeling of child-like innocence to your music.. This is a good thing mind.. Very creative as usual.. It's weird as hell, you keep doing your thing, it's a pleasure to listen, thank you :)

    Reply by Spivkurl

    Thank you Metabolic for the kind words. I suppose the "innocence" you speak of is probably related to the aspect of the song which delves all the way back to 1994's experiences. Can't do much other than my thing... definitely not going to do other people's things...heh! Thanks again!

    Hey Spiv
    This is another cool work from your hands.
    I really enjoyed the listen and i have to say that you get really good with your vocal work.
    The music is over the top creative and so special that i have to say - respect
    The refrain is excellent and the over all feeling is great stuff.
    Really well done my friend

    stay tuned

    Reply by Spivkurl

    Joecramer, your respect is appreciated, as well as returned in kind! You know you have influenced me since you started visiting Looperman with your songs and your unique vocal work! I have been working really hard on vocal recordings lately, more that anything else. Been trying my best to be at least close to in key, as well as to not need any editing for time after the recording is done. I've also been trying to get used to recording vocals without a blood alcohol level... which I actually was able to do in the more recent song, for the first time in a couple years, from what I remember. Thank you so much for always being there with your words and support!

    Another very creative creation bro.I always find myself picking thru the sounds...good work

    Reply by Spivkurl

    "Creative creation!" I like that, it's funny... makes me wonder what a "non-creative creation" would be like... hmmmm... ha ha. By "picking thru the sounds" I assume you mean that there is a lot going on in the mix, and you hear different things at different times. I like to make a mix that can shift along with the mind-state or mood of the person listening. Like a mood ring or something. Thank you very much for listening and leaving your words!

    Nice 8-bit-ish tune with some cute little finky wobbles in the intro till the rest of the track! Your vocals fit so well and the style and format used is so clean and really attractive. Really cool and unique sounds that I usually not hear!

    You never fail to suprise the whole community, cheers!

    Excellent work again Pat ! Expected creativity shines again and this is trippy, catchy and a bit off the wall at the same time. The vocals play very important role here and I think they never sat so incredibly comfortable in the mix
    before than this time around! Definitely a fave !:)


    Reply by Spivkurl

    Hey there Orlando! Your comment is much appreciated on this song! It seems that this sort of thing is a bit less "well received" when compared to many of the songs I release. Multi-faceted love is probably a difficult feeling to identify with. I can always count on you to listen to my songs, and support where I'm headed! Thank you so much for the fave as well! Have a great day!

    Fun beat and melody. The singing style is very Indie. I like it. It is creative.

    Reply by Spivkurl

    Thank you for the kind comment, and for listening to my stuff! It's funny, I hear that word "indie" thrown around a lot. I remember a time when that only meant that you were signed to an independent record label. Now it seems to have become a genre. With that in mind, I'm not sure how to reference the singing style comment. I do however take it as a compliment, as I have enjoyed many independent musicians work over the years. I like this song too, and I think it is also quite unpopular compared to anything I've done recently... must be doing something right, eh? Thank you so much!

    Trippy, early U-Vox!(John Fox) style of singing. and all around catchy. Good stuff.
    I wanted to share a new music discovery with you. This Duo from Norwich UK is very interesting.
    I thought you might like to hear/see them.

    Reply by Spivkurl

    Heh, here you are with another ultravox comparison, which is great because you seem to like their style! I've never been able to completely hear the connection, but who knows maybe hearing it when you mention it has influenced me more than I realize? Listening to the song you linked to at the moment. While I really enjoy the vocal recordings, I am not very fond of the music. I think there is a big difference between "simple" and "minimal," and besides the vocals it sounded very simple. I appreciate you bringing new music to my attention, at least I will know who they are if it comes up later on. Ha ha! Thank you for listening and commenting!

    And also, is that autotune you used on your voice at 2:26? I think that really adds a cool machine-like effect, so the vocal blends with the other instruments. Great stuff.


    Reply by Spivkurl

    Yes, you are correct, Autotune was used just for that short interluse as an effect, along with several other aesthetic effects. I just wanted the tune to carry away with the mix at the moment and the autotune fed to the delays and stuff worked well for that. Thank you my friend!

    I am never disappointed when I click play on your music. It's so different, almost quirky, and yet works so perfectly. I like your little vocal humming additions, they really add an entire new element to the song. I particularly like the rawness of your voice, this is a genre all it's own haha.

    Great work, as always, my dear Spiv!


    Reply by Spivkurl

    Hey Brado, thank you for taking a listen to this one! I'm getting the impression that it is far less acceptable to people than my usual track, and I take that as a good sign... a sign that I am breaking through barriers put up by things such as genre, "professionality," and machismo. The words meant a lot to me, and I wish I could have sang them better, but at the same time the words were especially relevant when the main takes were recorded, so it conveys the feelings well. The additional vocals were basically outtakes from attempts to do better, and yet they did add a lot. The vocals are actually not very raw overall, just audible. This is the first use of the new four channel gate/expander rack piece I picked up recently, and my first use of the Kustom dynamic microphone in quite some time. I suppose it could be considered a new or different genre, but it is securely influenced by early psychedelic rock such as Jefferson Airplane and The Doors, as well as some new wave stuff like New Order. In face the riff that shows up a couple times in the second half seems almost stolen from New Order, which was totally unintentional, and I didn't realize it until later. Totally appreciate you stopping by!

    Well, first thing I did before listening I took a good rip off the bong since this is in the Psychedelic genre. The Riff grows on you as you listen. Vocals add to the overall Trippy Vibe going on. Definitely unique and interesting.


    Reply by Spivkurl

    Hey man! Good to hear from you every now and then! I think you probably did the right thing with the bong... you know "grain of salt" and all. My roots are really in psychedelic genres, and more specifically Jefferson Airplane, The Doors, Depeche Mode, and the like. I know... that last one doesn't fit, but it works for my ears. The second half of the song is definitely more important riff-wise, as I think I really captured the New Order vibe in places, and on accident no less. I haven't used a dynamic microphone for a while, but I think that the tone really suited the song... plus it was easy since I already had it hooked to the noise gate for testing. Thank you very much for taking a listen to this! Have a great day!

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 : I may have mentioned to a few people that I had recorded an EP to cassette tape in November. The thirty minute, seven track tape was recorded on 14th and 15th November (during that excellent full moon). My process, this time, involved choosing a group of instruments from my main studio, and then interfacing them in a way that allowed me to perform a spontaneous track live. There was no planning, and each track was only given attention until the previous was lain on tape. All in all, it was a very rewarding experience to create "on a whim" like this. No DAW was used to create the sounds, or to perform/arrange them. All instruments were mixed in real time, and the output was forever dedicated to the magnetic medium. All of these songs were instrumental, and not traditional in their performance. This is a digital capture of two songs from the EP - "Agonist Moon" and "Faultline" - They are the last track of Side A and the first track of Side B. If you are not familiar with those terms... they indicate the direct physical and psychological experience of interacting with recorded media in order to play it in it's entirety. "Agonist Moon" was described by my wife as an "Icaro," which is a tribal shamans healing song in certain cultures. "Faultline" is more of a peak minimal technological shift into the rest of the EP. UPDATE - The entire Agonist Moon EP digital re-master is now available here...

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!

Description : Break up song of sorts lol. Vox, guitars and keys by Zootman. Beats and bass free Loopmasters demo. Words are (mostly) what I thought Damo Suzuki was singing on One More Night by Can. Instrumental or stems avail if anyone wants to play with it.

Description : I walked for miles, and what seemed like millennia in order to find the inspiration for this song, and subsequently the album which it helped finalize. It is an essential title track for me, even if it is encoded.

Here is the artwork in question.

A twenty-two month experiment,

Combining infinite expansion with absorpsion and inhibition.

A two thousand mile walk to the place I call home.

A home to be myself and room to roam.

A bone, and a stone, all alone and unknown,

But aglow, and beloved,

Here the sun and snow shown.

The album is available here, for the time being....

Description : I tried to make a 'doom cello' track but failed as the chillout vibes really took over but there is still some heaviness as well as a few minutes of dance music in the final sections. It's very moody and atmospheric and dominated by strings and drums. 120BPM but most of it is half that tempo. Lots of my electric cello playing though there are also sample-based string parts, especially the foreboding, drone bass - the only bass instrument in the track. Other pad sounds add some mystical, spacey beauty while an arpeggiated VST guitar instrument adds a progressive band feel in the first half. Drums are two programmed kits and mostly one hard rock/metal kit. Also one drum loop plus two music loops towards the end. I very rarely use music loops but they seem to work here. Let me know what you think of this progressive epic. Sorry it's so long but hopefully it justifies its length. It's definitely far out and difficult to place in any particular, obvious genre.

Description : One of several live in studio tracks which I recorded in recent weeks. This one incorporated my DIY modular synth and a modified Yamaha DD-20 as the only instruments. The DD-20 was, in part, triggered at audio rates, enabled by the the input modifications. Not quite the usual spivkurl track which you may be accustomed to. I'm putting this in psychedelic, though it could easily fit into ambient, glitch or cinematic genres.

Description : Descent into the archaic and cursed meanders of Nameless City. Inspired by the homonymous story by HPL. Comment freely, friends.

Description : The results of six hours in a psychotropic environment which was novel to my experience. Only fixed some minor mistakes and mastered the song after I left the environment (or after it left me). It tugs at passion as a dog biting a dress. Resentment and discontent are its language. Slice of life tragic comedy, with a psychedelic edge.

Description : Far out, cello-based, deep grooving, progressive, powerful and sometimes aggressive sci fi epic with lots of electronic elements and some dubstep craziness towards the end. Electric cello, slow attack guitar, resonator guitar, a little bit of bass guitar, 5 synths, lots of effects and drum loops and a few programmed drum kits. It all began with the first couple of cello riffs (one pizzicato bassline, one bowed main riff) and the hip hop beats and then grew and grew as I added more synths and drums and worked in some old, leftover guitar parts. It's very detailed and complex and the mix and sculpting of the sounds are as important as the composition. Have a good listen then come back and let me know what you thought of this twisting, turning journey into outer space. Feel free to criticise and/or tell me your favourite parts...

Tags : | Psychedelic | 14.24 MB | Cubase

Description : Far out epic featuring sine waves, programmed violin parts, played electric cello, various synths, drum loops and programmed acoustic drums. Mystical and a bit Eastern. A three min drumless intro and then some fat grooves and darker sounds. Not as good as I was hoping it would be. Interesting comments appreciated...
