Description : Today's six track recording of a live song which I've been practicing for several days. I broke many of my own rules when getting this to the product it is now. Times have been rough around here, with pressure building from all sides. You can feel it in the air, and in all the people. I can only hope that after the US election, some of the pressure releases. All tracks recorded simultaneously - Vocals via my 100 Proof Microphone, Monotribe, Beatstep, two modular synth tracks (one beatstep controlled and one by my four step sequencer), Zoom RT-123, 2xKawa circuit bent drum box, Boss RV-3 reverb/delay.

    This is great! Good job with fearless music making. It's nice to hear something different. I hear Skinny Puppy here, Ministry, Nine Inch Nails, and all that. You have a great style. Keep it up.

    That it does my friend! Can't help but feel unfulfilled when I do too much software synthesis lately. This one turned out nice, and should be on an album quite soon! Thanks for listening!

    gave me that matrix feel in the beginning but in your way so creative!! am not saying it just to say it.. feels like electric coarsing through my head healing me neuron for neuron so yeeeh, i truly respect you cause your magical. woooow am sooorrry, that part opened my eyes:O gave me the thought that nobody wants to be evil but they do the things they do cause they are so hungry...

    I think you very much grasped the idea and inspiration behind the song, and that makes me happy. It seems that people will truly resort to almost anything to feed their basest needs. It's something I am simply trying to come to terms with, otherwise I'm going to be prison-bound in no time. I tend to react strongly when faced with situations like that, and I'm going to learn to accept that there is simply nothing I can do. I thank you very much for your kind comment, and for listening!

    I can relate to the desperation, the frustration, the agonizing in the vocal. Given over 600 plays, someone else must be feeling this as well. congrats on great work Pat.

    These are surely desperate times, and then the po po's and admins wonder why people are acting out in desperation! It is one of the few medicines left for a sick society. I had no idea this song would get played this much, since it's over 700 now! Soundcloud is so pathetic now... this song has 13 plays there... just sayin'! It's always a pleasure to have you visit one of my songs, and I'm looking forward to seeing what's new on your profile.

    Damn this track is a journey on its own. From the hasty highway through the industrial part of the town straight to the central station and back again!The constant flow of the modulation gives this track a lot of energy. The vocal breaks are very smart implented to keep teh track interesting all 6 minutes long. Nice work!

    Hey mudhoen! Thank you for taking a listen to this one and leaving your words! Had a blast recording this one, and it was quite cathartic as well. The song captured a moment in time pretty successfully, which is not always easy to do within the confines of a DAW. Been having an interesting time rehabilitating from all the years of virtual sound, and I think it is helping me grow as an artist. I really appreciate you stopping by!

    Feels like I'm on an Autobhan and someone's superglued the accelerator wide open...or is this an automatic reaction to the inevitable political fallout brewing stateside...whatever it is there's definitely some gear crunching going on, man this is in a totally manic modulation zone, some super fluctuating grooves which get hyper convoluted yet bounce into that sweet spot enough to keep the continuity honest, for a live recording it's awesome Pat, I hope no neighbours were injured during this performance ;).....I think your music is coming from your id as in Forbidden Planet, I see the steps to the music room bending under an invisible force, though there are no bad vibes here...Pat Morbius..has a nice ring to it! haha..you are one off the wall musician man and the world is a better place for it!...cheers Dave :)

    Hello Dave, and thank you for this awesome comment! I'm thinking that the whole situation which led to this recording has much to do with whatever they were spraying aerially in the weeks leading up to the election. We would hear the planes, then see the time release clouds, then there would be "cloud" cover for days, and all you could do was hear the planes. Each time the planes made their repeated passes, within an hour or less we would start to hear emergency vehicle sirens, and we would begin to feel the not so subtle neurological effects. One such time, a woman drove into parked cars across the street, pressing five cars against each other. As the election approached, I got the distinct impression that the spraying would break after we voted. Bang! After the election, clear skies for days, and winter could begin. Still I fear that the hardships are yet to come, at least personally. ... Since I was doing vocals, everything was monitored through headphones, so if a neighbor heard something, it was those raw vocals. Your words - "I see the steps to the music room bending under an invisible force, though there are no bad vibes here..." definitely strike a chord, and they bring to mind "Ray Bradbury Theatre" I've been watching those over again recently, and the introduction, where he describes his "toy shop" and "alien landscape" where he draws his ideas from - they make me think of my studios and the process I've been moving toward. I really appreciate the feedback, as always. If I could fave comments, this would be one of them! Thank you!

    This is actually really cool although I never listen to this kind of music (alsmost never). I totally love the fuzzy sound. It's brilliant, and the vocals really spice it up, would have loved them in the middle with some doubler on the sides maybe but totally like the fuzzy sound.

    The breakdowns are pure electricity! The rhythm is alert and I like that a lot, it sounds like it's pushing you forward and then dragging you back.

    Funny how so much distortion and fuzzyness can work so well together! Actually reminded a bit of The Prodigy...don't ask why. There's a lot of groove in there!

    Faved!

    Hey Mahloo! Thank you so much for the kind and supportive comments on this track! I am humbled by the reaction of many of the users here, and it gives me drive to do more along this line. The rhythms and the breaks were definitely what told me that this was the take, and that I needn't go any further, so I'm glad you liked what you heard as well. I really appreciate the listen and the fave!!!

    Hello Spivkurl,
    this sounds really like -back in time-
    If i had heard this one in the beginning of the 80's i bet that it would played by many of my friends and me very often and very loud.
    This tune has this special feeling of a need for changes on so many levels in the system. The vocals/lyrics is a kind of a war cry against everything and all. That is something i really love.
    Very wild, very free and sure very unique.
    Good to know that this kind of revolution against -normality- is still alive! The fact that you played it all live brings all a level higher......

    Really great stuff. And with the words of -die Antwoord- i have to say:
    I fink u freeky but i really like it!

    stay tuned

    Joe, thank you for your kind words! It seems like you definitely understand where I was coming from while recording this song. Seems that I can always count on you for support, and I appreciate that! "This tune has this special feeling of a need for changes on so many levels in the system." - That really said it all for me, as this "need" is part of all of my days. Life has become so strange and artificial feeling... I can't even imagine how much worse it is in a larger city! I will continue to work (too) hard, in my own (small) way to change things for the better. I just can't seem to get this experience of a convergence of energy from DAW based work lately... and computers are starting to just be an annoyance in general, at least much of the time. Stay tuned for something off my cassette EP, hopefully later today! Thanks much!

    Very chop and screw, I like it! how do you make a song with swing sound good like this?

    Spivkurl
    Reply by Spivkurl

    Heh, haven't heard "chop and screw" for a little bit of time! Honestly, this was a live and a bit spontaneous, so I can't fully explain how the swing worked out. The Beatstep and Monotribe had a lot to do with it, and the 2xKawa has been noted by some very experienced friends as possessing a lot of swing by nature. It was the inspiration that made this work out, I needed to do it, and so it was done. Thank you for listening and leaving a comment!

    Spiv. How are you doing, man?

    I like this one. If I had to describe it to someone who has never heard your work, I would tell them to imagine as if Nivek Ogre and Mothersbaugh founded RevCo. Not to minimize your creative talents by comparing, but rather to say your abilities sit in good company.

    I like the sense of urgency in this. It's like a manic feasting, or compulsive consumption.

    I'm still amazed at your abilities to use full analogue. I might be able to figure out how to produce a sound. (singular), but I'd definitely get lost trying to figure out routing, and patching. Therefore, I have a healthy respect for your work. I tip my hat to you, sir.

    Take care.

    Hey there! It's good to hear from you! I've been slow in replying while on other projects lately. Trust me, the artist comparisons which you used are complimentary, and not taken as any sort of insult! What you describe is bit how it felt in practice and recording this song... it did feel quite urgent to make this song happen before it was too late.

    It seems that I take things too literally. When people speak about me using "full analog," I get the urge to mention all the aspects of it which were not analog. Things are different these days, and it seems accepted that any hardware besides a computer is analog, so I am trying to adapt. I do appreciate your amazement though. This song was musically very about routing and patching... I hope to do many more in this fashion.

    Thanks much!

    Sounds great and awesome mastering dynamics. It is great that you are one of those few artist that stays true to what you do and at the same time always being creative and innovative. Love those breaks in between, you could also be a metal vocalist too if you wanted to with no problems.

    They just made weed legal in my state. This would be a perfect song to light one up just to trip off of what you did here. Unfortunately for ne I know nothing about industrial so without embarrassing myself too much I will say well done for awesome sound quality and song structure. Cheers! Joe.

    I celebrate that political victory in your state! I'm going to do just as you suggest as I reply here. Still not legal here, and I've had a medical card for most of the year... Haven't been able to visit the dispensary due to the cost, and it needs expansion anyway (no plant material).

    Your comments regarding the quality, mastering, and structure all mean a lot to me, especially since these were only minimal in consideration for this song. Since it was all recorded live, I didn't take a bunch of time perfecting each track, and the structure was only lightly practiced (sort of ended up this way). It got pretty similar mastering as my usual, since it was recorded into the DAW... but that is becoming pretty easy. Really tried to focus on performance and expression within a limited set of instruments. I'm happy with it.

    Thank you for taking the time to listen and react!

    Hey Spivkurl, you are probably one of the most experimental artist on the loop. You've always been the rule breaker in a great way. You actually gave a positive comment on a track of mine a while back which was a very pleasant surprise. Don't change your artistry. Continue to artistically distrupt the norm. I expect nothing less than game changing from you.

    Reply by Spivkurl

    Hey, your comment is much appreciated, and I apologize for taking so long to respond! Your compliments make me happy this morning. You may be right about things, as we never quite see ourselves in the way that others can see us... Over the years, I have tended to create arbitrary rules for myself, taking cues from real life and my efforts to control my actions. Like in real life, when rules become to stringent, the urge to break them becomes overwhelming, and shit explodes. I figure that in music, the same could happen... so now breaking these rules I have built for myself will allow me to continue without hurting myself or others... and to wait for the opportune time to break rules in real life. Been ultra productive, but less social, so not on the Loop as often. I do have a new direct to cassette tape EP recorded, which a song or two may end up on here soon. Built some new instruments as well, which will show up in later works I'm sure. Thank you for your support and the great comment! Please have a good day!

    Hey Pat , one of the guys here mentioned this reminds him of System of a Down. Never having heard them work i went over to YT and had a listen to "Chop Suey" and i was blown away by that track it has about 46 million hits incredible. In your track i like the angst i like the pain and i like to hear anger i always think nothing good comes to anyone except through PAIN which in turn leads to GROWTH. Excellent stuff best regards Robbie.

    I applaud your creativity. Not really my style of music but i'm open minded. The drum cadence is almost like a army of soldiers marching in my mind. 3:51 I needed that release because my mind was beginning to spin. But all in all I'm impressed with your arrangement and your thought process. Those synths are cool and the vocals almost remind me of like a scary movie or something. Not really familiar with the genre so I can't compare it to anything. But kudos to your 2 track. Peace & Blessings.

    Reply by Spivkurl

    Industrial is definitely a big listening preference for me, and I definitely like to create it as well... though this is not exactly my style either. I say this since I haven't done a completely live track with vocals for well over a decade. I think of live oriented industrial as being a fairly different thing from what much of industrial has become in recent years, in the same was as I think of most other genres. Some peep behind a computer and a stack of VSTs can barely consider themselves a performer, and most genres are far more potent when they are performed. I'm happy that you enjoyed what you heard overall, and I appreciate that you took a walk outside of your comfort zone! Thanks!

    Hey friend, good to hear from you! As you can probably tell from this track, life has been a bit frightening and painful of late... and saying "a bit" is being optimistic. I've been working hard to hone my skills at performing entire songs live on my own, since it really is the ideal for a multi-instrumentalist such as myself... plus it will give me that much more power when Love and I get back to work on Iris-T-Shirt tunes, since we did a lot of things live. Beneath it all, I'm doing okay, aside from continuing legal issues. I should get my bankruptcy certificate in the next couple of weeks, so that will be nice. Still hopeful that I won't be sent to jail in January... Been working hard on various projects, such as putting up a nice stylish fence in our side yard, making the house more secure, and harvesting some nice produce and herbs... raspberries in November in Minnesota is not normal at all (goes out to those still in denial of the drastic change in climate). Thanks for taking a listen, and leaving your always supportive words! I will try to keep in touch better!

    vocal clip is classic spivkurl angst and well mixed into the track. i heard from Alex (promenade) recently. He is experimenting a lot with MicroKorg. I thought about your unique sound creations, well evidenced here, when reviewing Alex's samples. All inpsiring me to journey out into less familiar soundscapes. Regards.

    Reply by Spivkurl

    Thanks for stopping by to listen! The vocal clip was all live, but each track was recorded individually so that I could do a subtle final mix. I also just received a communication from Alex where he mentioned his microkorg... I do like that synth despite it's shortcomings. Been using it since 2002 or so, about the time it came out. I think it is still the only synth that I've ever purchased new. The DWGS waveforms (a'la DX7 and other FM synths) on it are a nice touch, which expand the vintage vibes and can give a reasonable organ sound. I'm happy that you enjoyed listening to this one! I am working hard to hone my live skills again, and hope to do more in this vein once I finish my new instrument build... you know me, I'm easily distracted by hands on stuff. Thanks buddy!

    Very cool drums intro, caught me by surprise. The vocals reminds me of King Crimson's '21 Century Schizoid Man', I digging the distortion fx, something I'd like to incorporate in my music in the near future. Very impressive vocals, an interesting and creative approach. Your synth work is nothing short of awesome, truly original work. Bravo brother, faved. Thank you for sharing with us, mad respect.

    Hey Pete, always great to hear from you! I believe that you have mentioned King Crimson several times when hearing my music, which either means that it is a very important group to you, or something which I should be hearing but am not, or both. As a result, I'm going to hear them now. Hearing the song you mention right now... it seems that they must have a singing bassist. This is something I have always respected, to the point where I am married to one. (!) I like the song, and it feels very psychedelic. The distorted effects worked out well, and the combination of effects on the vocals is something which bent my personal rules a bit. Sounds good though. It was simply words which had been going through my head, combined with words which I seemed to hear from an injured person going into shock at the school across the street, which I was able to release due to watching Texas Chainsaw Massacre after a run in with the neighbors and police. It's more complicated than it seems, I guess! I am working hard to hone my one-man live skills, and this is a recent example, with hopefully more to follow, if I can only focus. You are always there to support me, and I thank you for that! Have a great day!

This is simply an expression of my feelings, and further training in the live one-man performance aspect of my music, which does not get nearly enough attention from myself. Working hard to create songs which will be effective in a live setting with no support at all. It's a challenge, but that is how an artist grows, I suppose. Working on a magnetic tape based instrument today, based on some ideas by Reed Ghazala and Arius Blaze. Something I've wanted to do for a while. I will check out your profile and then get back to it.

    Hey buddy, it's been a while! Unfortunately, this has been a ridiculously unmedicated summer and fall. Went without cannabis for the longest time in probably fifteen or so years. It has hurt really bad of course, although I have learned some things... I learned I cann't talk to people when I'm angry or ill unless I want to get charged with a crime (which I am again). I learned how to refinish old hardwood floors (which is in my Studio B and eventually the entire house). I learned how to make soymilk, nutmilk, tofu and tempeh (which has saved me a ton of money and walking or cab fare). And now, obviously, I am re-learning live band performance, but on my own. I dig much of Pink Floyd's stuff, but have never really gotten into SOAD... as far as I know, they were very popular in the time when I checked out of society and media pretty much completely (1996-2000). I think it was a good time to check out though, as I have developed very differently from my peers since then. I appreciate you stopping by my friend!

    Thank you for listening and leaving your comment! I get why you liked the parts which you did... since this was all a live performance, the sync was hard to achieve, and that middle section got a bit messy. I am however happy with the result, considering only a couple of days between patching the hardware and devising the idea to recording this take. It's a good workout standing where I'm surrounded by instruments, and turning to reach more than one of them at once to make the momentary changes while trying to prepare for the vocal parts. Thanks again!

    Ahh, to receive a comment like this from you is such a pleasure! I'm happy that you understand as well. With how things are becoming around here, anything would be preferable... anarchy, violent revolution, nuclear war... anything. I'm already a perpetual victim, and I already have the causes to drive me... the only thing standing in the way is a militaristic police state which only values it's surreptitious mind control over the populace. It's working too! I don't know why it's not working on me... Maybe the lack of TV commercials? Maybe the lack of mobile technology? Maybe the lack of medication? Maybe the lack of vaccination? Maybe the rejection of GMO/pesticide/herbicide/hormone laden food? Maybe the soil microorganisms that I touch? Maybe the entheogenic substances? Maybe because I've never legally driven a car? It could be any of these or more! I seem to obviously see things which others are unable to look at, even when they are shown. I don't get it. There is a reason I will be voting for Jill Stein again this year, even though she is a doctor. Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are both on the payroll of the same corporations, and thus neither will serve to change things for the better. Green party does not accept corporate donations, and corporations are who currently control USA, possibly the world? No matter what happens, I could see myself with only what I can carry in the next couple of years. I may as well enjoy this materialism while I can. Thank you for the very supportive comment, and for listening! Looperman has been a constant source of inspiration over the years, and I hope that it continues through the strife which will come.

What's nice about this, is that as long as some one is there to listen, this is completely independent of the computer. The only reason I used it was to record the independent tracks, and get it rendered to a state people could hear it online. I would have liked to hook up one of my cassette decks as well, but got lazy!

    Amazing man. This tracks slays! The synth during the stop at 3:48 is so evil and gritty. The drums are awesome. And the vocal effects kick ass! Great work on this!

    Crypt, I thank you for being the first to comment on this one! I'm glad it was someone who appreciates the modular, industrial, lofi aesthetic! It is really a good feeling to finally be making strides in the one-man band live arena, as it's been a goal for a long time. The vocals weren't really planned, but simply thoughts which had been prominent in the last week, and in some part influenced by an injured woman screaming across the street on Monday. The drums are overly simple, since I had to do everything in real time, as opposed to detailed DAW work... I had to choose my battles to limit the length of the song. I am really happy with the break parts... the modular really worked out well there, and it was very present since it depended on what step I stopped the sequencer on as to how it reacted to the amplitude modulation changes. I will definitely be doing more stuff in this mode! Thanks again!

Description : A song that I made with Dinn and my production team.

Description : Hello all, finally got around to polishing this track, which came from a collab with FarM (known on here as honkytonk). He provided me with some drum and bass work, and I came back with a demo that was essentially what you are hearing now. I just fixed the tuning and some pops at transitions. The tuning basically thwarted our collab I think, because without really remembering I played the guitar parts tuned to 432 Hz *** http://csglobe.com/music-conspiracy-to-detune-us-from-natural-432-hz-harmonics/ ***
and left all the other instruments at 440 Hz as a result...heh. Sounded much better after fixing that. Anyway it's got some dubstep and industrial most obviously. Yet another song I unconsciously ripped off from Skinny Puppy. Thanks for taking a listen! You can get the new Spivkurl album "Charting The Anomaly," which includes this track at the We Are...

Description : My grandmother was from Belarus. She was the lone survivor of her family after the Waffen SS massacred everyone in her village during a retreat from the Red Army. She escaped soviet occupied Belarus & through a series of wranglings by the international red cross, found a family to adopt her in New Jersey in 1947. She was 14 years old then. She was the strongest person I ever knew & I miss her terribly. This song is for her.

Description : I recorded this song several weeks ago, live in studio. It was a very spontaneous reaction to some experiences and interactions only an hour or so before.

I recorded the audio tracks, as well as a video on my old digital camera. The video has been up on youtube for a while:

https://youtu.be/mu6Yf1OJixo

This was recorded with my 100 Proof microphone, Eat Lead Copper modular synth, Breaking Blue tabletop synth, modified Yamaha DD-20, and Zoom RT-123.

In the last couple of days, I finally got around to mixing the audio I had recorded into a better quality rendition. The stems were used as is, simple being mixed a bit and mastered.

Have fun listening!

Description : Here is a new Spivkurl track for all of you to check out! My thought process interprets this as industrial gothic, but it's open to external interpretation. This song's sounds were almost entirely sampled from equipment which I hand soldered, whether it be synthesizer builds or circuit bending. The lead vocals were recorded with the new microphone which I built in the past few days, and I'm happy with the way it interacts with my voice. In fact the only piece of gear used that I didn't build was the microphone for the hook vocals... and they are meant to be unintelligible, as they were recorded spontaneously with a patch I called a Spivocoder (on my modular synth). Uptempo and aggressive, it's definitely my sort of industrial. Please give me your opinions if you have the time! Thanks!

Description : Updated 6 May 2017 - I took a bit of advice from OViea91 in order to enhance the reverb field of the vocals, and I also worked to tame some harsh high end in order to allow the low frequencies and dynamics to shine through more. I think it is an improvement. Downloads allowed now! 21 April 2017 - Here is my latest song, which begin from two directions at once. The lyrics began as a sort sentence written on a calendar photograph, and the music began as my entry to the FL studio "Sytrus Only" competition. I finished the vocals completely freestyle, using my DIY 100 proof microphone. All of the sound design is still the original entry, and thus uses only the Sytrus plugin on FL studio. The arrangement barely changed from the original instrumental (to accommodate the vocals), but the mixing and mastering was updated slightly (since the competition did not allow any effects at all). Being observant can be a real bitch sometimes when you're out there in the world, though sometimes an idea like this can be the flip side of the coin. The song also started me thinking about the literal difference between "Earth" and "World." One seems specific, and one general... though I think that the generalisation can add to the longevity of the relevance of an idea such as this. Thank you for listening!

Description : The results of one of my most intense recording sessions to date. I don't think I've explored a single key this deeply ever before. (G minor for those of you wondering) I pulled out my old Epiphone Les Paul, which I've rebuilt and customized over the years. Typed the original lyrics for the song on a couple text message drafts in my phone, then expanded upon them. Has some dubstep elements which are obvious, but it's at a higher tempo. So I guess there's some gothic and industrial in there too. Thanks for taking a listen! You can get the new Spivkurl album "Charting The Anomaly," which includes this track at the We Are...

Description : This is one sexy track. Bordering NeuroFunk.. I made this heavily sleep deprived and exhausted within a few hours.. Getting to grips with mixing again, how is it on your end? I'm also feeling some tom toms in the intro.. Maybe.. Best enjoyed with headphones :)

Description : The title felt a little weak, hence the change.
It's finished! The mix is far, far better, I've added some extras and brought out some sounds that weren't coming through previously. D'ya think it's gig ready?

Description : Here's a song that I wrote with my friend. I tried to make a gritty and weird song that also included using my voice as a soundscape. Some sounds are simply me blowing into the mic.I put an insane amount of delay on the vocals and pitch shifted them down 2 semitones as well as adding distortion. Enjoy!

Music:Rick Joanisse/Ty Dumoulin

Description : A sort of Bonobo-meets-Faithless track with woodwind from MrMosely. I don't really know the genre; but sounds like a mix of industrial and chill out. A simple song (Simpleton!!!) but hopefully it works for you guys... consider it a new years song/birthday song (ya, im 12 now!!)

Description : Drawing on my favourite bands this demo fuses pulsing electronic beats with raw electric guitar, horror movie sound clips and a bit of my singing!

My next track will feature loops from Looperman so please follow me to hear it first!

Description : I used Serum and Sylenth1 to create all the synths and basslines. I used random percussion samples for the drums. It's not dubstep, and it's not Drum and Bass, but it's elements are heavily drawn from both to create an experimental industrial track in it's own class. It's heavy, aggressive, and driving. Some will like it, others won't. As always, mixing tips, suggestions and advice is welcome. Take care. V.

Description : Distorted, heavy on the vocals, lots of swearing. The words are based on a satirical poem I wrote a few years back. It's restructured to fit into the song & be more sinister in feel. I used Vocal finalizer, Scheps 73 compressor, Electric Sunburst, Massive & both synthmaster 1 & SM/KV331. Did my best to D-s the vocal. A new mic is definitely on my short list.
