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.

    Hey Static Nomad,

    That's good to hear as I've only been playing the instrument for 5-6 months.

    No kidding? You're definitely have a natural talent for the cello. Keep it going.

    "Paris in the mid-late 70s"

    I had the blessing of living in France from the early 70's to early 80's, and I had the pleasure of hearing American jazz fusion players play, and practice their crafts when I was living in Paris, before moving to another part of the country.

    No kidding about the short time I've been playing and recording cello. I probably started recording it in the first few days of playing. I have no idea if I have a natural talent for it. I think it's more a talent for playing stringed instruments in general.

    I still make loads and loads of mistakes when recording cello (and other instruments) but one of my top skills is editing of audio parts. So, my playing ends up sounding much better than the raw, recorded version after my careful splicing together and layering of the best takes.

    Good to hear about you getting to hear American jazz fusion players play in Paris many years ago.

    Thanks for the additional thoughts.

    Freakin' Brilliant track! I like the unique way you fused the psychedelic and Eastern Jazz, while alternating different drum styles throughout the song, and making it your own. The cello tracks are outstanding and their arrangements, well balanced. This song reminds me of my days in Paris in the mid-late 70s. Thanks for the memories.

    Hey, thanks for checking this out.

    Great to hear you think it's freakin' brilliant.

    Yes, ever-changing drum styles are a big part of my music, for various reasons. I try out so many different drum styles and often find that quite a few will fit so then try to work out how I'm going to get them all in (without overdoing it for the sake of it).

    Also, I do a lot of stuff in the same key so having evolving drums helps give different sections in the same key different characters, hopefully hiding the lack of key changes.

    "cello tracks are outstanding"

    That's good to hear as I've only been playing the instrument for 5-6 months.

    "Paris in the mid-late 70s"

    No idea why it reminds you of that time but I'll take it anyway. I wonder if you heard music like this back then in Paris.

    Thanks again.

    Sup, skillful sculptor of sound & song, sitting in solitude.

    Very cool intro. Then going into another section that reminds me of the theme music for '80s detective shows like Columbo or Murder She Wrote.

    How are you getting the volume swells around 1:30? The delay effect on that lead is very nice.

    2:24 guitar is tasty and fitting, then we abruptly have an interruption with half the band stopping. A new idea and direction.

    3:07 kick is great. Kind of makes the section.

    Your wicked experimental shit after 4:00 is killer. Sounds like there is a woodwind or some kind of flute breaths mixed in there. Sounds awesome.

    7:30 lead line sounds like some smooth bass guitar in sections. Then an outro full of breath and ghostly feeling.

    Middle section was my favorite here. No section was a dud.

    Not a lot new here. Started a new track on Monday. Trying to make it a little different, but we'll see.

    I hope all is well on your end.

    Word up, alliterative a*hole.

    Surely your greatest alliterative intro ever. Your true calling may be as an alliterative greeting card writer. The land can go scape itself.

    "sitting in solitude"

    Very true.

    Cool intro is a mixt of spiccato playing on the high string and regular bowing on the lower strings. Tricky switching between different bowing techniques.

    "theme music for '80s detective shows like Columbo or Murder She Wrote."

    That's a surprise. They don't have any Eastern vibes, do they?

    "How are you getting the volume swells around 1:30"

    Careful bowing, with emphasis at the right points. That cello sound is really muscular. Deep and moaning.

    "abruptly have an interruption with half the band stopping"

    Yeah - I told them to fuck off and let The Nomad do his thing uninterrupted. They never returned so I finished the rest of the track on my own, playing all the instruments simultaneously in real time. Genius me.

    "3:07 kick is great"

    Not much skill from me as that kick is simply part of a drum loop. My skill is just in choosing it. And then letting it breathe, with the somewhat minimal instrument playing around it.

    "experimental shit after 4:00 is killer."

    I agree. Most of that is "beyond the fingerboard" harmonics. You just roll a finger to move up a semitone as the distances between notes are so short though it's pretty damn haphazard so required lots of editing. Very alien sounding.

    4:19 I think that's the start of a cool, distinctive lead line. That's the "beyond the fingerboard" harmonics.

    "woodwind or some kind of flute breaths mixed in there"

    I think that's all just cello. I keep finding new connections on the cello between bowing and blowing. I even got a bit of a bluesy harmonica sound out of it in one of my new, unfinished tracks.

    "7:30 lead line sounds like some smooth bass guitar in sections"

    No, I can't hear anything to do with bass g there. That's when a new, dark guitar part enters. Maybe some of its lower notes sound like bass g.

    "an outro full of breath and ghostly feeling."

    The breathy stuff is partly cello, partly ominous pad sound. Nice chillout, dark stoner couple of final minutes. Could have gone heavy but never even tried it. Ominous chillout seemed quite sufficient.

    I hope you're exceptionally well.

    I had a real tough kayaking journey the other day on my own. Got one leg stuck in the mud up to the knee. Tried to dig it out with the paddle. Broke the paddle and then had to leave my sandal behind just to get my leg out. River current was later so strong that I couldn't paddle against it so had to get out of the boat and pull it upriver. Stepping barefoot on the river bed was not fun. Then decided to put a spare shoe on that bare foot. Had to wear one soaking shoe the rest of the night out around town but it was OK as the weather is warm right now. Crazy Nomad adventures...

    Yo Great Keeper of the Proverbial Nomenclature!

    "If something sounds weird, it is probably bowed cello." Well, that narrows it down. :D

    While listening and thinking of things that might help improve this, my initial thought first time through was to slowly fade out the vinyl crackle and let the music breathe. Then, the vinyl crackle was gone...never to return. So, you beat me to the punch.

    @2:43 Nice Clyde Stubblefield style drum break and the build that follows.

    @4:00 Starting to boot-scoot now. It's like a tripped out Devil Went Down To Georgia through here.

    @5:36 Uh oh, very minute audio click. Noticed mostly when just listening and not going back to listen for it. May be an attack setting on the ride?

    @6:24 Electronic stoner/doom commences. I can pretty much just put this section to the end on loop and be happy.

    Yo.

    Very sorry about the very slow reply. Most unlike me.

    "Well, that narrows it down"

    Well, so many of the weird sounds are cello but not all so I thought I should mention that. I'm not going to go through and give a time reference for each and every one that either is or isn't.

    "my initial thought first time through was to slowly fade out the vinyl crackle"

    The vinyl crackle ends because it was simply part of one drum loop that stops. It wasn't something I'd intentionally added and then removed.

    "Nice Clyde Stubblefield style drum break"

    Yes, I agree now that you point it out.

    "4:00 Starting to boot-scoot now"

    A boot-scoot indeed, which is a funny term. I like fast swing jazz drums.

    "5:36 Uh oh, very minute audio click"

    Extremely minute. Perhaps I'll just check exactly what's going on as the drums and bass return.

    "6:24 Electronic stoner/doom commences"

    I agree though I hadn't thought about it being doom. I just found it slow and dark though normally when I feel I'm in doom mode I get the guitar out and dial up some badass riffage. But I never attempted that here, instead preferring to get the cello to do as much as possible. Without distortion.

    "I can pretty much just put this section to the end on loop and be happy."

    I'm happy if I can make someone else happy.

    Thanks again.

    Greetings, Nomadobro.

    I am currently listening to this on my M-Audio BX8 studio monitors and your entry cellos sound HUGE. Wow. Is it electronic cello? Regardless, it sounds absolutely stellar. I am happy to say that this track is the first to grace my studio monitors and I'm quite pleased by how good it sounds on my speakers. 0:19 is quite warm, silky and has a very graceful dreamy atmosphere that those cellos provide; that pedal did wonders for it.

    I also liked how you simply did single movements of the bow (for the most part) to create space. The drum beat is solid and keeps everything together nicely, while not standing out too much or pulling away from the other instruments, despite its prominence in the mix.

    2:48 was quite ear-perking for me. I really like the sound of those keys when backed by that jazz-style beat. You have some really cool stuff going on in this segment. Your wailing cellos really breathe a different air into the song.

    3:48 sounds like a jazzy bass is playing in the background; is that a synth or your cello doing the bassline? It's quite juicy, and I like juicy. The beat gets a little repetitive for me as this segment goes on, but that is only a minor issue for me.

    7:30 - is that a guitar or cello? Haha, if it's a cello, you play it in a way that is quite similar to a guitar and that's pretty darn cool in my book if so.

    Overall, a pleasant listen!

    Good stuff. As always.

    Best,

    Brado

    Yo, Bradobro.

    I noticed that when you wrote this review you were writing loads of others around the same time. I never write any more than two, maximum three, a day. There just aren't enough Looperman tracks I either like or feel sufficiently moved to comment on.

    Yes, it's a fairly powerful and distinctive intro.

    "Is it electronic cello?"

    Excuse me for potentially being pedantic but no, it's electric cello ie not an acoustic cello but still a real cello though it needs to go through an amp. So I put it through my guitar rig rather than using a mic, as you would with an acoustic cello.

    I think electronic cello would be a synth/sample-based cello patch. I occasionally use some of those but they sound nothing like my played cello, which is new in my music in the last few months.

    "0:19 is quite warm, silky"

    Yes, that's where I layer probably about 4 bowed parts together to get that big, emotive rise that takes us neatly to the arrival of the bass and drums.

    "single movements of the bow (for the most part) to create space."

    Yes, that's because I'm still a total novice when it comes to bowing and don't really have sufficient control of it yet to groove doing alternate up and down bows. I wish I could.

    "drum beat is solid and keeps everything together nicely"

    I agree. Two loops that mesh together perfectly. Strong groove but doesn't get in the way of the more interesting stuff on top.

    "2:48 was quite ear-perking for me."

    Cool. I love to perk your ears.

    "You have some really cool stuff going on in this segment"

    I agree but I was strongly considering getting rid of it to cut down on the the running length. It was the last major section that I came up with.

    "3:48 sounds like a jazzy bass is playing in the background"

    That's the synth sub bass. It provides all basslines in the track apart from the first bassline around 0:20, which is cello going through my octave pedal so that it sounds like a proper bass.

    "It's quite juicy, and I like juicy."

    You've heard that exact same synth patch in many of my tracks. I know I shouldn't keep on using but it does such a good, solid unobtrusive job though I do sometimes also bring it to the fore and make it sound pretty badass.

    "The beat gets a little repetitive for me as this segment goes on"

    Sorry - I tried to vary that swing jazz groove in subtle ways but maybe I have failed. My drums tend to vary a lot so I'm trying to actually make them a bit simpler. You still hear much more drum variety in this track than in most people's music.

    "7:30 - is that a guitar or cello?"

    Definitely guitar. No way it could be cello. You can hear the sound of the guitar strings in there. I kept the guitar real minimal in this one though the playing in that section isn't great. Maybe I'll go back and try to improve it.

    "a pleasant listen"

    My pleasure to be able to offer you a little bit of pleasantry. It's why I do it...

    Reply by StaticNomad

    Yo.

    The intro was a bit difficult to play as I have to move quickly between two different types of bowing. So, there's a lot of editing and layering going on in the intro (before the drums come in). Still doesn't sound quite right but it is quite interesting and distinctive.

    "Beat fits perfect, chill, psychy and groovy"

    Yes, I think it's all those things.

    Great to hear you love it.

    You certainly wield a wicked Cello in this one bro. Loads of interesting elements here especially in regards to time signature and tempo. It almost feels like a movie score to like a Quentin Tarantino version of Lawrence of Arabia. I envision the harem girl sequence as 1:22 to 2:43 with some nice belly dancing nubiles but it could have been a little longer ! Love the effects on the cello, sounds like some overdrive/distortion in spots. Groovy stuff man, you would have been a God to the hippies with this if you were around in the late 60's early 70's man. You need to find a time machine!

    Anyhow, you know I'm always tuned in and turned on to your groove channel.

    Greetings, Neocellobro.

    "You certainly wield a wicked Cello" is a cool phrase.

    You know I've been concentrating on the cello for the last 4 months or so and trying to get it to do as much as I can in each track it appears in. I'm not really big on practice on any instrument so this is my way of finding a reason to play and try out new techniques and stuff as I learn this somewhat difficult instrument.

    So, so much cello in this, including a few slightly different playing techniques. As regards time signature and tempo, yes I keep the drums moving through different styles. If I hadn't done that, I'm sure the track would feel long and samey and boring and as if it hadn't really gone anywhere.

    "movie score to like a Quentin Tarantino version of Lawrence of Arabia."

    That's an interesting idea and I know what you mean and it could work really well. I recently rewatched Tarantino's Inglorious Basterds and I thought a lot more of it than I did on first viewing (I now really like it). I bring the film up because it had some cool, odd musical choices in it that gave things a really interesting feel. There's even a David Bowie song in it!

    "harem girl sequence as 1:22 to 2:43 with some nice belly dancing nubiles"

    Yes - I get that sort of feel from it as well. Sorry that section wasn't longer but I knew I had loads more sections to get to so I thought I wouldn't hang around and just get right on with the next one (which has some really powerful cello riffage).

    "Love the effects on the cello, sounds like some overdrive/distortion in spots."

    I was pretty sure that I hadn't used any overdrive on the cello in this but there might be in some of the darker swing jazz sections in the middle. Otherwise the effects are just delay, reverb and chorus plus some amp modelling from my guitar floor effects unit.

    "you would have been a God to the hippies with this if you were around in the late 60's early 70's man"

    Quite possibly. Maybe I can still be a god to them 40/50 years later (and beyond).

    "You need to find a time machine!"

    That may well be possible:

    Very nice piece of music you created here. As usual the mixing is spot on but in this particular track I love the chosen instruments. The way you use the cello is pretty unique for my ears. They give the track a strong backbone. The short jazzy break at 2:50ish is awesome and fits very well. It fits seamlessly to the whole of the track. The drums and especially the change of rythm in it keeps the track interesting eventhough it is 8:42 long. The drums that are coming in at 5:35 are a bit to sudden for my taste but that is probably personal preference. The slowing down to the end is really strong and gives a very dark and mellow touch. Great track and instafav!

    Yo.

    "the mixing is spot on"

    It really has to be with the kind of music I make otherwise it doesn't work properly. I'm not making catchy songs or dancefloor anthems so everything has to be sound good as it's supposed to be music you listen to over and over again.

    "I love the chosen instruments"

    Good. There aren't very many of them as I've kept it quite minimal and tried to get the cello to do as much as possible. I've been doing that a lot in the last few months.

    "The way you use the cello is pretty unique for my ears"

    Yes, probably so. I generally use quite a simple combination of effects (mostly delay, reverb, chorus, sometimes distortion) that means that I my cello never really sounds like a traditional cello, as used in classical music. I'd quite like to get that sort of classical vibe as I think it would inspire a different style of music making. But I also like the sounds I get using these effects.

    "The short jazzy break at 2:50ish is awesome"

    I was thinking of getting rid of that whole section that follows (the one featuring Fender Rhodes) but then decided that I like the drum loops too much to get rid of the section.

    "that are coming in at 5:35 are a bit to sudden for my taste"

    That's where there's a big, sudden drum fill as the swing jazz drumming returns. I wanted something exciting and explosive but maybe I've got it wrong. I don't mind hearing that.

    "The slowing down to the end is really strong and gives a very dark and mellow touch."

    Yes - I like that slow, dark vibe. The reason I did it is because this track was made out of another recent one that you liked:

    The Mythical Gates

    http://www.looperman.com/tracks/detail/177482

    So, I still had all those slow, shuffle groove drum parts sitting on my timeline so I decided to reuse them (and change them). I think a slow, dark chillout ending is a good way to close things out and makes it seem like a real journey.

    Thanks for the thoughts.

    StaticNomad
    Reply by StaticNomad

    Yo, Monsieur Rhodes.

    "The scratch adds an edge"

    What's the scratch? Do you mean the very first note of the piece (and some others after it)? That's spiccato bowing on one of the higher strings. Basically, you don't rest the bow on the string and draw it across it, as with regular bowing. Instead, you give it a sharp sort of glancing blow, essentially bouncing the bow off the string. You can get flute and shakuhachi sounds using that technique.

    Of course Rhodesy enjoyed the Rhodes piano chords! They're pretty simple and repetitive but work fairly well.

    Thanks for checking in...

    No, I definitely wouldn't say it's that good. I'm not quite sure what a perfect piece of music would be though you've certainly got me thinking quite deeply about it.

    I could point out quite a few small sections (or single notes) in this track that could be better.

    But if it seems perfect to you, I'll accept that.

    I guess the first question for you to consider is whether you would want any element of the track to be in any way different. If not, then it might be close to being perfect to you.

    It was more story telling journey music that words would only dirty. The story belongs to the listener here. No words no video just that awesome music is the story.

    Hi.

    This is the second track of mine in the last month or so that you've wanted to go on for much longer. The other one was this:

    The Mythical Gates

    http://www.looperman.com/tracks/detail/177482

    They're actually both from the same project so are at the same tempo (100BPM) and share a few sounds and settings. Both have strong Eastern elements.

    "driving beat that comes in was a dream"

    That's two drum loops layered together. They seem to fit so neatly that they sound like one unified sound.

    "talking weeping cello doing things cellos aren't supposed to do."

    That's a good description and I agree that the new cello riff that kicks off the section after the first drum groove section does have a mad sound to it. It seems quite muscular and powerful but I'm not quite sure why. Despite getting all these weird cello sounds in this track, the only effects I'm using are delay, chorus and reverb. The rest is just playing techniques.

    "story telling journey music that words would only dirty."

    Only if they're dirty words. If they're interesting/intelligent words they help me make sense of what I've made and give me some useful things to think about and perhaps take into future compositions.

    "Got to go have another listen"

    Keep listening. I hope it's the kind of music that stands up to repeated listens.

    Thanks again.

    Dude this track is a mind blower. It's extremely poignant and actually triggers one's emotions. I've never heard this style of music before, but it's very interesting. I'll be listening to you a lot more, so hopefully I can implement this style into my own productions. Btw TLaw is my partner I'm just just using her page to build her profile before I let her do it and that's how I type unfortunately(it's actually not annoying now because I'm used to it). Notice how I typed normal here so you wouldn't be like woah Lol.

    I noticed that and am hence not now "like woah".

    That regular style of writing looks much better. And is easier to read. I'm not quite sure what you feel the capitalisation adds in terms of a benefit.

    "It's extremely poignant and actually triggers one's emotions."

    Sure - I'm all about triggering emotions though poignant wasn't one that I thought of when making it (or since listening back). But anyone's free to interpret it however they like. How could I stop them, even if I wanted to?

    "I've never heard this style of music before"

    I'm not sure I have either. I guess I've heard all the separate elements before but probably not combined in this way.

    "hopefully I can implement this style into my own productions"

    I'm not sure what to suggest except that you get more psychedelic, complex, detailed and so on. Lots of (or at least some) carefully controlled delay helps add to/create a psychedelic mood.

    Hi.

    Yes, this is quite psychedelic. I make a lot of that type of music though with lots of other genres incorporated into that type of mood and feel.

    I will check out your track and leave feedback if I have anything useful to say.

    Separately, why do all of your words start with a capital letter? Isn't it annoying (and a waste of time) to keep switching to the shift key when starting a new word?

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... https://spivkurl.bandcamp.com/album/agonist-moon-ep

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 : 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 : 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 : 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 : 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 : 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...

Description : Don't know for sure the correct genre,but this tune felt like the name
but can be different for each listener...Doc

Description : This is a song about standing up for what you love! Keep growing! All parts were composed and/or played by me, including guitar. All lyrics and vocal recordings are Spivkurl.

Description : I wrote this song this weekend and recorded it last night with Sunny War on vocals and guitar. (We've got a backload of 10 or so songs but I'm a shiny-object kind of guy.) We kept almost the entire loop orchestration and there are some great loops here. The whole thing is built on looperman-l-0208341-0068163-drmistersir-lonesome-freaky 80 which runs throughout. Mixed with that for the first half is the crazy choral looperman-l-0911223-0101152-silencekills-key-5-pad-81-fs-min across 3 octaves. The musical bridge before the outro is built on the great loop looperman-l-1264531-0079769-arixxonsc-sequence-old-school-escape. My instruction to Sunny was "Play the guitar like it's wrestling with that loop." Sunny plays bass but we also kept looperman-l-1059144-0070847-ebaby8119-the-move-808-bass to go with it. Then there are a couple great bell loops and a choral chant loop at the end, and then of course all the drums. One of the rare times we've kept most of the loops and just wove Sunny's guitar into the orchestration. We even kept one of the guitar loops, looperman-l-1059144-0068323-ebaby8119-the-question, because it's perfect for that moment. I think this song launched a 4th album to be called PATH. Any comments or reactions are greatly appreciated. You're the first folks to hear any of this stuff and this community is instrumental (literally) in making it happen.

Description : Hey! Enjoy my (unmastered) Morning-Progressive-trance-music. :)
I'm searching for VOCALS for the Intro. I would also use them in the beat parts but in my own creative style. I can't say what I'll do with the vocals because I know that only when I hear them.
If U're a singer please contact me until thirsday. Please write your text by yourself cause vocals are accually none of my issues ;)
Greatz, Squennix
