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.

    Haha you should've heard me reading the title...not erally, but it was funny. :-) I totally got it wrong the first two times. Lol

    Really strange, but this took my mind to a child playing. He is content, playing with blocks and the colorful,things that move on the things that look like roller coaster rides. Then I thought of teletubbies, running around. Then strange voices coming over the airwaves. Then a cute little group hanging out on the streets of some island, entertaining all who walk by. Or maybe a video game of some sort. This takes my mind on many great journeys. :-)

    Hmmmm is that why it's psychedelic??

    Always a pleasure to read your comment Patricia! The title was kind of a "word salad" which incorporated a generalized chemical composition as well as some mis-spelled slang. Obviously the title wasn't that important! The description of your mind's interpretation of this music was interesting to read. It does definitely suggest psychedelic imagery in ways. There are those days on which I feel like a child playing with toys, which is something to cherish. I have never experienced telletubbies, however I would not doubt that some of their origins were psychedelic in nature... I tend to think that many animated styles did. Those strange voices became the real anchor of the song, even if they are not fully audible... I like to incorporate recent thoughts into most of my songs, one way or the other. I remember when my wife and I would play and sing our songs acoustic on the bike path here in town, at that point, we could have been that cute little group you speak of. Though if we do it again, which we plan to, I fear things would be different. There is little freedom in this country or this city any more. Simply expressing yourself, speaking your mind, or sitting in a public area can cause more problems than one would expect. Video games are not something I've played for a while, though I did find a classic NES controller a couple days ago... hopefully I will find an affordable working NES to go with it. Used to love some of those games! Thanks so much for listening and leaving your words!

    Hey, yeah good to hear from you! It was great to have a nice solid set of hours to spend in the studio when I made this one. My energy is spent in so many directions that this is a rare thing. Very happy that you enjoy the psychedelic trance vibe! Hope all is well for you!

    Hey mate

    Very nice intro to this one, great panning from the percussion, liking the bell midi sound, has a very nice chill relaxing feel about it until the kick comes in, great bass you using here, reckon took a bit to get bass sound like it is, not familiar with this genre yet so cant give much feedback genre wise sorry, but enjoyed the listen that's for sure...fav...Peace matey...mosaic...

    Hello my friend! It is nice to read your comments on this! In general, I would call this psychedelic trance, but since the addition of "psychedelic" as a genre it is my new project to overtake the category. Psy trance is definitely one of my favorite styles, and I think that the commonly uptempo vibe works for me. I usually do it around 144-146 BPM, where a lot of other trance is more 138-142. I've worked so much in that range, that my composition gets too repetitive at times. Plus it is so easy to fall out of trance, and into some other realm at those lower tempos, since so many other styles use the same range. The bass was meant to anchor the song, and add performance possibilities later in the day. I can't say how long it took, as I was in an unfamiliar state that day. The composition, arrangement and mixing of the song took about six and a half hours of continuous focus. That amount of dedicated time is not something I allow for music recently. I definitely recommend you seek out some psy or goa trance artists and have a listen. It totally changed the way I think about electronic music. Thank you for sending through a message! I will respond as soon as possible. I have been lacking in communication due to the mercury retrograde, home improvement, and further legal issues. Have a great day!

    Spivkurl
    Reply by Spivkurl

    That's quite a compliment, and I thank you for it! Most of the mixing was done in the midst of the same trance which resulted in the sound design and arrangement, so I think that helped make it cohesive. The mastering was completed the next day, after an EEG test, which I don't believe I've undergone right after a psychedelic experience like this. It is comforting to know that it was completely normal... ha ha. I really dig doing psychedelic trance, so much so that it seeps into almost every song I do. I often have to force myself to keep it out of a composition, just to avoid repeating myself. Very pleased that you enjoyed listening, and I appreciate you leaving a comment!

    This is a great song. There's beauty in its simplicity. Love the arps and the way you worked the delays and the reverb. It's not something I'd ever imagine being in a club environment, but it feels like it's on its own artistic plane. Love it.

    Thank you for taking the time to listen and leave a comment! I have been making electronic music for about sixteen years, yet I have never been to a "dance club." When I go out to hear music, it is generally live bands. In fact, the only "rave" I have been to was 25 years ago, and was at a christian music festival. It's funny, I simply have no idea, and little interest in what people expect to hear in a club! When I am doing this sort of music, I find it more akin to "braindance," where it is meant to inspire though along with visions, whether OEV or CEV. The combination of tends to be, for me at least, a sort of internal dance, which tunes the physiological state of the body and it's reactions to the so called external world. As such, I take your comment as a compliment! I really appreciate you listening!

    Hey tv! What's up? Hoping that this song helped you to enjoy the after effects of that bowl! This summer has been the longest I've gone without smoking bud for years, maybe even a decade or more. Filing bankruptcy and the summer heat has gotten in the way, which are both situations which make me wish that I was smoking! I fully realize that you are more into psychedelic rock than trance, but I'm happy that you could enjoy it all the same. My roots are in psychedelic rock as well, and I try to bring a bit of that into most things that I do... I'm just not used to recording guitar while I'm tripping, ha ha. Happy to hear from you!

    Nice track, very simple and rhythmical. I love minimalism in everything — including music — and this track is minimalism itself. And it works! Made wanna dance in some weird fashion and then go and watch Blade Runner for a hundredth time. I think it has a little bit of that vide, too. By the way, I completely agree on what you said here about the world’s current state, with corporations controlling all aspects of our lives. That’s capitalism at its most epic. Anyway, thanks for the eight minutes of great musical experience!

    Thank you for listening to this and leaving your comments! It's been a seriously long time since I saw Blade Runner, however I can understand the correlation. I suppose that this is pretty minimal compared to a lot of my songs, since it didn't involve a bunch of patch cables, vintage toys, and midi routing. I'm glad you have a glimpse of the corporate rule that is going on currently... I wish that the government would cease taking corporate funds and treating them like they are some sort of superhuman race (though they just might be exactly that). The cost of the bombs we drop in a week could very likely feed millions of people for a year, and yet the corporations are allowed to use chemical and genetic weapons in the name of feeding the people. Head up ass. I really appreciate your words!

    I've come on here today and so far it's psycho and rock which is great for an old fart like me!
    Parts of this take me into the track I just uploaded today called Ald Timers Disease which just goes to show those synapses and neurons and dendrites in that old bone casing are experiencing similar sparks and short outs .... which is kinda scary cos I've been short circuiting mine for years!
    Definitely mental music for the cybernaughts this one.
    Great track.

    Hey my friend! I enjoyed reading your comments, and your conversation is pleasing! Getting caught up on replies today in between setting up the new lab and "studio B." I seem to remember hearing that track of your which you mentioned, though I'll be able to tell if there is a comment from me on it... it's pretty rare that I don't comment on a Looperman song. I'm happy to hear that I am not the only one who has circuit bent their brain! I always used the term "psychonaut," which must be US spelling and pre-internet. While I have never been blessed with crystaline DMT, I have been using DMT containing plants for well over a decade. Virola bark (DMT and bufotenine with others) has been a constant help to my soul expansion in the past year or so. The dreams I have, wow. I live in a company town based on the Mayo Clinic, so they have done wonders at reducing the non prescription presence around here. It's too bad, as I've been helped far more by street dealers than those dealers who call themselves physicians. I have yet to meet someone on looperman who openly discusses DMT, and for that you have a gold star from me! I'm so looking forward to visiting your profile again! Thank you!

    I always enjoy the minimalistic sounds you craft up.

    Love the wub wubby bass line and how the arpeggiated beeps start off tight but then have moments where they just fall apart and then reigned back in.

    I'm guessing that is the talking toy introducing himself at 2:58? :)

    Everytime I hear a clank in one of your tunes, I picture you emptying out the kitchen cabinets and loading up the pots and pans into a DIY sampler made of old airplane parts .

    As usual, great song. I get the feeling you spend a lot of time in those psychotropic environments!

    Hey, thanks for stopping by to listen and comment! I enjoyed inducing the subtle time shifts in that arpeggio part, I think it added to the psychedelia a bit. The VC3T did not show up in this one at all, as it was just a DAW based composition. I did use some samples of my gear, but the digital sounding voice was just something I found at some point. Ha ha! I wish I could take apart an airplane... though some of my recent vintage acquisitions from Ukraine and Russia could have been bound for something like that originally, who knows?! I do admittedly split my time pretty evenly between this world and the unseen, although it's not like it used to be. Since the big DEA action in 2001, I have not had real LSD. I just do what I can, with what I have, when I can. Virola bark from at least twelve years ago has been an almost constant ally in the past year. Maybe that is why people are scared of my when I am just sitting there, and why they think I'm crazy when they've never met me. Well, I've got to go finish setting up my lab and "studio B" finally, but I'll stop by your profile first. Thanks again for the comment!

    You truly live in a musical world of your own.
    This track its more complex than it may look or sound at a first listen.
    Its a track that shows something new in every new listen.
    Its relentless kickdum feast from start to finish just throw everything thing from its path.
    The bleepy arpeggios really works like some kind of digital voodoo,and the track dynamics are really clever.
    Great arrangement.
    This is the real intelligent dance music without the gimmicks.
    Wondering what outboard gear you might have used.

    Well done Patrick!

    Hey Nelson, always good to hear from you! This was a pretty cool adventure to create, and not much like my recent endeavors. You asked about outboard gear, and that is one reason why this was different from recent stuff, since it was all "in the box," DAW based work. I did use some samples from my modular and a couple casio keyboards, but using software samplers. I have over 160,000 samples in my collection now, so that really helps when working in a DAW. Makes me happy that liked what you heard here, and I'm glad that you liked it enough to download! Looking forward to hearing what you've been working on!

    Ah, classic Spiv style :)

    Has a sense of discord that I appreciated, your main lead was quite quite catchy. Do you manually program these patterns yourself? It's a fun track with a dark sense of loss and confusion behind it all. Great stuff, never cease to surprise me with your unique spin on music. I like the effected vocals you sprinkled around "What is wrong with the world?". What is the robotic voice saying at 2:58?

    Good stuff, I appreciate the details in this one.

    Spivkurl
    Reply by Spivkurl

    Hey buddy, thanks for taking a listen and living through the long track! The main lead was started with a simple four note sequence, which was transformed with digital assistance into a more complex arpeggiation based around the intended mode, then this was manually manipulated to induce time shifting and a more complex note structure as the arrangement progressed. I'm glad that you can find some fun in there, which I'm thinking must be found in the fun I had creating it. The dark sense of loss and confusion is definitely paramount in almost every aspect of life at the moment. The robotic voice became sort of the response portion of a call and response, so the entire lyrical expression would be - "What is wrong with the world? It begins to crack." I'm happy that you find it detailed enough, I wish that you could have seen and witnessed the details which were fleeting and escaped me on that day. Thank you for your words!

    Metabolic, thank you for always coming through with positive words! It's interesting, I've been thinking about "1984" recently, and how it is so much like these times that it is scary. My father, whom I had not seen in a decade, and I were bringing up films/books which reminded of us of these times, and after naming some others individually, we both said "1984" simultaneously. It was a good moment. I don't think that I would bother to work on this more, as it was very much about capturing a state of being, rather than some sort of perfection. I'm sure you know what I mean. I apologize for my BS lately, I'm trying to be more chill. Have a great day, and thank you!

    I think you got the message from this song pretty clearly. I did not enter into this creation with any ideas or expectations, but the thought process entered into it all the same. My concerns about the future are becoming all too clear while I research government policy. The corporations who control the government have things locked down nice and tight. There is little recourse for simple individuals. Self defense is becoming terrorism. Living life is becoming impossible. The world is beginning to crack, literally.

    A lot of psychedelic sounds on LM lately and this one fits perectly to the genre. Love the 8bit sound you introduce in the beginning of the track. Feels like a grasp of sanity in the psychedelic atmosphere which you created with the bassline and the drums.The transition to the 2nd part is original and well found. Nice 90s Vocal mix you used there. In the 2nd part the 8bit transist into the psychedelic realm aswell which makes the sound ewven more depper than it was. In the 3rd part you really get the story going. The high tones give a fresh but still vibey feeling. The spivkurl signature is definetly in here. A nice and fun track to listen to. Well done!

    Since psychedelic is a new addition to the genre choices, I'm glad that it is finally catching on! I guess I can't quite say what the "2nd part" is... it was all plateaus of different lengths, specialties and intensities for me. That 8 bit sort of sound you mention, while it may be the grasp of sanity in the beginning, sort of intensifies the time warp aspect later on. The primary vocal clips are actually from the early 90's, so it makes sense that they would give a 90's impression. I've been chewing on that half hour insanity for years now, as it was one of the best moments in television history. I can't help but autograph everything I do, it seems... even a simple conversation with a stranger. I frighten someone from a seated position, with witnesses and a digital recorder in hand. The world is beyond beginning to crack, and that needs to be addressed. Thank you for being the first to leave your comment on this piece... I expect my next one will be a lot different from this, as I don't usually work in the box like this. Thank you!!!

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 : 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 : 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.

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
