    I always know I can count on you for a very cool and trippy track. Smoked a nice bowl before listening to this. Awesome. Thanks for sharing.

    Hey buddy, it's always good to hear from you! I know that you are one to appreciate a modern psychedelic experience, at least musically, and so I thank you for sharing the journey! Smoking a nice morning bowl myself at the moment, mostly to offset this poor tasting batch of instant coffee. ha ha. I'm very happy you enjoyed this "short but sweet" endeavor. Thanks much!

    Hi Spiv.
    Im back after a lot of stress moving but now chilling with the vibe here at lopperman. I really got into this one of yours which has an offbeat theatrical edge to it and you are right everyone is suffering mainly due to crazy politicians. Thats three times ive dialled this in gotta go .nice one. Regards

    Hey buddy, good to hear from you! Sorry I completely lost touch there... it's been a strange couple of months to say the least! Either way, I'm glad to hear that you are moved in. Also happy that you enjoyed the song enough to play it a few times! Thanks!

    Ahh a new name for you eh? Welcome back to the Loop! Hope that you are well!

    It's like a freakin battle lately trying to get solid studio time lately... spring, electronics, community service, parties, losing my mind... it all takes time and energy.

    I'm very happy that you enjoyed the song, and I apologize for taking so long to reply. I actually have no memory of getting this comment at all... wonder why? I've been writing more lyrics lately than music, which is often a good thing. I love those songs that I only put to music years after writing the lyrics.

    Thank you for stopping by! Take care!

    This is insane!
    This is music from the inmates!
    You got lost at the asylum?
    I love this.
    Absolutely love it.
    Sounds nothing like but it takes me to the craziest stuff of the B 52's Tom Waits Captain Beefheart.
    Don't change Spiv.
    I know what you mean when you hear the conveyor belt music.
    So unique so listenable.
    Possibly my all time favourite now.
    I'm inspired.
    Fantastic bestest thingest I heard in a long time.
    It fits nowhere.

    Reply by Spivkurl

    That is a very kind and pleasing comment to read! Happy that you felt inspired after listening.

    Really, it is mainly referring to being lost by the legal system, yet again. In addition, sometimes it's easy to loose your bearings. *startled, glances at trousers*

    In the end, it was a fun and cathartic way to force myself to slow down. Compared to my other endeavors, writing and composing music seems like a "free ride," atleast in a physical sense.

    On this bright and overcast day, many great things grow towards a bloom. I thank you for adding to the brightness!

    Hi, Pat

    It's good to hear your latest bit of madness. Your voice is very expressive and shows more flexibility each time I tune in. I like the new sounds - it is really quite amazing that you build these synths. Best regards - Dan

    Reply by Spivkurl

    Hey buddy, seems like I haven't heard from you in a bit! Hope all is well! I appreciate the comment on my vocal performance, it means a lot to me. In all honesty, most of these instruments were not of my own design, aside from the Bias machine. The monotribe is modified, but only partially by me... though I intend on liberally expanding that item in the future. My recent instrument build has been an almost constant effort for about two months now, and will take at least a couple more weeks I expect. Thank you for taking a listen!

    Well done!

    Reply by Spivkurl

    With almost every track I release any more, I am simply shocked by the reception... the plays, comments, and whatever else. I can personally understand, but when I step back and try to view things as a whole, it gets confusing. It is worth making songs simply for these chances to connect with like minded individuals, other artists, and art lovers. Thank you very much for listening, and leaving a comment!

    Geez Louise. Great job. Some parts of your vocal delivery remind me ever so slightly of Siouxsie Sioux. And I love the minimalistic approach and sometimes casio like delivery. Always a treat to hear you sing. i remember back in the day encouraging you to do more of that and you have over the years so Bravo!

    Reply by Spivkurl

    I too remember that you helped encourage me in this direction, and I thank you! It's funny that you mentioned Siouxsie... later in the evening after you posted this, my wife and I were getting a buzz and watching youtube. We found a little documentary about siouxsie. It was quite funny, like a bunch of her friends being interviewed while kissing her butt. The only person (sort of) in her band who was mentioned was Marco Pironi (of Adam and the Ants), who was just thrown in there in her first show as guitarist. Nothing about Steve Severin or how Robert Smith probably played a lot of guitar on here early albums. Oh well, it was funny. The "casio like delivery" idea seems to be becoming more common, though I never really thought about it. I know that many casio instruments have a signature sound, but I never though about it in terms of "delivery," which puts it more directly than I've heard. I'm happy I could get a song done in the midst of all the inst building and other hard work. Thank you for listening and encouraging!

    This was quite the trip! Haha! What did you use for the vocal recording (microphone)? Was it one you made? This is so trippy and I like it for some reason haha. Maybe because it's so against mainstream (which I hear too much of nowadays) :P Great stuff, I have no words or critiques. This song is in a category all it's own LOL!


    Reply by Spivkurl

    Hey there Brado! Thanks for stopping by to listen! This was not a microphone that I made, but was in fact a vintage Marantz Superscope EC-5. I find myself using that one a lot lately, as it's response just seems to work well for my performance style. "Against mainstream," I suppose you must be right, since it mirrors the way I live (most days). It was kind of fun to make a short song like this, as often when I do they are without lyrical value, more like experiments. I think this gives it a bit of old school pop value. Thanks much for stopping by!

    Your voice is really captivating and fit well within the composition.
    Really a great job my friend.
    Well done.

    Jamid, I must thank you for consistently being there to listen and support my continued work! You also seem to be an integral part of Looperman in recent times, and that is something else to be proud of! There are a few people on here whom I like to think of as "Spivkurl fans," and you are definitely one of them. The more I listen to this, the more I hear some bipolar tendencies... I guess that's okay, I'll just add it to the list! Thank you my friend!

    Wow. This track is impressive. Sounds insane the first time you listen to it, but it's complexity shines on repeated listens. I especially love your vocal performance. Like the composition it shifts and slides around (through it's pitch and through panning). It's quite easy to believe that the narrator is lost again, because everything keeps changing, even himself. Obviously that is just my interpretation. But it's cool that the track made me engage with it.


    Reply by Spivkurl

    Thank you my friend! "Sounds insane the first time you listen to it, but it's complexity shines on repeated listens." This part of your comment made me think deeper on how people interact with me in my "everyday" life. As if only those who have interacted with me regularly in the past can understand how I react to things. Possibly this is part of my recent legal issue. The vocals took a bit of practice, and with the tempo of them it was difficult to give the song a good length. There was definitely a bunch of different influences to the vocal/lyrical aspect. Getting "lost again" was a primarily external issue, and is a very positive aspect of the idea. It was celebratory, in a way, as I have been charged with three crimes in the past four years, and have avoided trial or real punishment in all cases. I always appreciate hearing other people's interpretations, especially in my lyrical work... this is part of what is so valuable about the looperman community! I'm happy that you listened and enjoyed! Thank you!

    Thank you for listening to this, and for leaving your equally fun comment! It's interesting, I never really thought of this as abstract... possibly it is a reaction to the lyrics, maybe not. Happy that you feel that it merits further listening. Thank you so much!

    Reply by Spivkurl

    Thank you Elena for the nice comment! It seems that a lot of people only notice the strangeness, as opposed to the extreme levels of contemplation and research which lead to my songs. I'm happy that you can see through that a bit! Often I get a lot of resistance when trying to explain my musical thought process, or I get retorts such as "you obviously don't know anything about synthesizers," or "this is intentional due to this or that genre." It seems silly, but people can think what they want. I appreciate you listening a couple times!

    I love female sounding sample you incorporated to those first beats of a song - at least this is how it sounds to me: serious and real. Politics and stuff discussed - a real song! At 0:47 I can recognize wonderfully ringing Omnichord in the backgroud when melodic treated voice is in foreground. High - Low, Dense - Transparent - a kind of extraposition happening. Cool. 1:40 is more breathy. Fine mixing of sound. 1:54 there is an apparently simple melody, I like it a lot.

    Reply by Spivkurl

    Thank you for visiting my page again in recent days! You are right, this is serious and real - as are most things going on within and without lately. Then again, things are getting to the point where nothing is okay, no matter what choices I make. It's hard feeling this way, but at least music can help me keep going. The omnichord fit in really well to make that section happen, and I'm glad that you could "pick it out." The term "melodic treated voice" had me wondering - to me it suggested some sort of use of pitch shifting or correction on the vocals. There definitely was none of that. Possibly you mean something very different from this though. The idea of extraposition was one which I had to look up, and I found it very interesting and appropriate for the lyrics. The "breathy" aspect of that last vocal section was most likely due to sheer exhaustion... performing this many words in such a short song was a bit trying. The simple melody was played on the Yamaha YS200, in an effort to make a short solo phrase which would give a contrast to what had come before. Seemed to work okay, especially with the odd modulation which trails of on the last note. Thank you very much for listening my friend!

    Reply by Spivkurl

    I don't think that I can avoid the traits which you speak of, and yet, I can't help but feel that it is others who are strange and weird (music aside). Can these things truly be a "majority rules" attribute? I look around at the people I see, and I think "how can you live like this?" In a similar fashion, I look at much of the recent popular music, and think "why bother?" Maybe these things on their own make me strange or weird. Either way, I appreciate your listen, and the feedback! Thanks!

    Reply by Spivkurl

    Hey Orlando! Thank you for having a listen to this one! Your reaction to the title is entertaining to me, due to the underlying idea behind those words... I did in fact get lost again, but maybe not in the way that it could be assumed. Mostly it refers to being "lost" by the court system again. A third citation, in a period of four years, from which I could avoid trial or serious consequences. Luck of the Irie strikes again, I suppose. I'm always found in more pure form when the satisfaction is present, or the lack thereof. Thanks for the kindness... I'd rather be "off the wall" than hanging ON IT. Appreciate the fave my friend!

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 : 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 : 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, well worth checking out. Instrumental or stems avail if anyone wants to play with it.

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...

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...
