Description : Latest Spivkurl track here, containing many different recent themes. A little bit of psychedelic organostep, maybe? Has the first released recordings from my latest instrument Bias Machine, which is a manual magnetic tape based performance sampler. Also some data bending, Suzuki Omnichord, Korg Montribe, and Yamaha YS-200 in here. Even my cat had her influence... Please enjoy the listen and download!

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.

Spivkurl replied 14th Apr 2017 - 7 years ago
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
Spivkurl replied 13th Apr 2017 - 7 years ago
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!
Prelude 30th Mar 2017 17:24 -  7 years ago
it's fu.. cool patrick ,
I like this psychedelic vibe and creative arrangement .
lyric is extra ordinary too .
I really enjoyed .
Spivkurl replied 7th Apr 2017 - 7 years ago
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.
Spivkurl replied 31st Mar 2017 - 7 years ago
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!
DanGoldstein 24th Mar 2017 18:00 -  7 years ago
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
Spivkurl replied 30th Mar 2017 - 7 years ago
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!
mudhoen 23rd Mar 2017 18:53 -  7 years ago
I think everything has already been said in the comments. Another fun and unique spivkurl track. It is always a surprise where come up with every time :-)

Well done!
Spivkurl replied 24th Mar 2017 - 7 years ago
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!
MGproduct 23rd Mar 2017 17:00 -  7 years ago

crucethus 4th Mar 2017 21:41 -  7 years ago
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!
Spivkurl replied 6th Mar 2017 - 7 years ago
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!
BradoSanz 2nd Mar 2017 22:47 -  7 years ago
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!

Spivkurl replied 3rd Mar 2017 - 7 years ago
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!

Hello Spiv,
I think you've done a wonderful job here.
Your voice is really captivating and fit well within the composition.
Really a great job my friend.
Well done.
Spivkurl replied 17th Feb 2017 - 7 years ago
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!
toastedavalanche 16th Feb 2017 15:36 -  7 years ago
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.

Spivkurl replied 16th Feb 2017 - 7 years ago
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!

Woah this is so fun to listen to. Sooo abstract. I could listen to this a billion times and find something new each time! Nice work. :)
Spivkurl replied 16th Feb 2017 - 7 years ago
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!

Hey spiv it's uinque and creative as usual of your works .

I like the way you think about music .

Spivkurl replied 14th Feb 2017 - 7 years ago
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!
promenade2239 12th Feb 2017 20:08 -  7 years ago
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.
Spivkurl replied 14th Feb 2017 - 7 years ago
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!

You are correct, it is. However, from this comment, I cannot tell if you simply do not have a grasp of language, or if you are simply using my track to bump yours. Either way, try to put a bit more thought into things in the future. Thank you.

I love this strange weird track. I love the strange weird singing. I love the strange weird music. I love your strange weird style. Please keep being strange and weird.
Spivkurl replied 13th Feb 2017 - 7 years ago
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!
Orlando51 11th Feb 2017 23:11 -  7 years ago
Oh, no no my friend...who will believe you? You obviously didn't get lost
as title would suggest. You're still more than well on the track with your usual inventiveness and creativity! I'm a huge admirer of your "a bit off the wall" style and thank god you're always true to it. Faving this is a must !:)

With admiration_____Orlando
Spivkurl replied 13th Feb 2017 - 7 years ago
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
