Description : This song is for my daughters. I wrote it about 10 years ago when I was living in Florida and they in LA. Now I'm living in LA near those two daughters but my youngest is teaching in South Korea. No matter where I am, or where they are, I think about them every day, throughout the day, imagine what they're doing, having conversations with them, cracking a few jokes, and that's really what this song is about. Finally after 10 years, I got an opportunity to record it right, with the great Sunny War. It's part of our album called RISING. (In one app I play it on there's a glitch at the start, but only in that app. I haven't been able to find what's causing it. I hope you don't hear it.)

    very very cool production...what I very much like in your works that those are very simple songs with huge work on the producing side...this is a good example too...one themed song but never gets boring...and don't talk about that voice...

    hats off, Danke

    Thank you, Danke. That comment warms my heart. I used to write complex, wordy songs that were hard to follow. Over time I simplified things to their basics. It's all about structure for me now, and feeling, and mood. And of course Sunny is the perfect collaborator because she too is about clear lyrics and simple melodies. Well, we have finally finished the Sunny Sessions and I've posted all 55 songs at thesunnysessions.com. Please check them out sometime. Thank you!

    Hi silverman. Thanks for the listen and comment. You must have read my profile, which is quite old. I still work in Audacity to write the songs and orchestrate the loops in a full composition. But then with Sunny we've recorded in a studio - I save all the tracks as separate wavs, we load them up in ProTools and off we go. I couldn't produce this level of quality at home with Audacity. So I got back to spending $ on production because I had to. Thank god we finished the Sunny Sessions a couple weeks ago because I just got laid off, so no more $ on music. But we're done and you can check out all 55 tracks at thesunnysessions.com if you like. Thanks!

    Nice little number.
    Reminds me of someone and I can't think who.
    It'll come to me and I'll let you know.
    Using audacity must be a bind.
    It's an editing suite more than a song compilation set up.
    Ever tried acid?
    Acid 7 markets at around a hundred and fifty hundred and seventy five dollars.
    Go on Amazon .... quickly because when people see this there'll be a mad rush ... acid 8 is round fifteen dollars and does more or less the same thing.
    It won't recognise USB midi only the old fashioned MIDI in out sound card thing.
    But loops and line in are all there.
    I'm amazed you could produce this well on Audacity alone.
    Another one is Magix who have actually bought out Sony Acid. They do a free one no time limits but I think it's only eight tracks.
    Powerful software though.
    If you can be this good on such meagre resources I look forward to you getting better gear.

SOMETIMES

by Citizen Mofo

Sometimes when I’m restless, I get up out of bed
And wander through the darkness in the rooms inside my head

Sometimes on the balcony in the middle of the night
Sometimes the moon breaks free and bathes the world in light

Sometimes when I fly my gaze across the buildings and the trees
And the rivers and the highways and the mountains and the seas

Sometimes I can see you from a thousand miles away
I can see the things you do and hear the things you say

And I watch you with love, and I watch you with pride
Sometimes I might have laughed, sometimes I might have cried

Sometimes I want to reach you – reach out and touch your heart
Sometimes I want to teach you that always is an art

And sometime I will, soon as I learn myself
Sometimes I still can use a little help

8X: Sometimes

Description : Just an acoustic/piano piece I threw together a few nights ago when coming home from university. My brother and I were doing some acoustic music together in my room, just having fun; came out with this; I immediately got on my DAW and recorded it before I forgot how ti went lol. Hoping to get some strings on it soon as well as some vocals from the bro! :P In the meantime, enjoy this instrumental.

Description : This is an acoustic cover of the song "Come As You Are" by David Crowder. I recorded, mixed, and mastered this one in two days! Almost done burned me out haha! Hope you enjoy!

My older brother does the lead vocals and I do everything else, from instrumentation to harmonies. No vocal-editing whatsoever in this one. The guitars were all one-take recordings. Updated the audio - I added tambourine hits in the 2nd and 3rd choruses; just helps make for a more moving song.

Description : Here's a lil' acoustic instrumental I never wrote words to. Used a Guild acoustic guitar mic'd with an AKG C214 and my trusty ol' Yamaha MOX8 for other instruments (excluding shaker - that was real ;). You can find the guitar loops to this song on my profile page. Maybe one of you looperpeeps can come up with something for words on this. Otherwise, enjoy le moosic :3

Description : Working on my acoustic recording quality. What do you guys think? I'll extend this once it's closer to completion.

Description : There were two separate tracks in work, but who knows why I got tired with them and then decided to merge them (or at least what left from them) into one piece hence they originate out of same musical purpose. No worries...no world war was ment here, except my recent personal one...haha...and you don't want to know about it.:) It's not real etude by any means, yet it's quite alot about practicing...practicing...

Description : This is my attempt at the one-hour challenge for LM (finished at 57 min 48 sec). I had to mix/master on the go and this was the result. Some bad chords here and there that I did my best to conceal, one-takes on guitar and piano and used an awesome acapella from a1000times, who wrote the words that Dikaiko sang over. I really like her voice. Anyhoo yea, I like this one a lot so probably gonna come back to this in the near future. Comments welcome.

I got the acapella here: https://www.looperman.com/acapellas/detail/7656/marauder-feat-dikaiko-by-a1000times-132bpm-dance-acapella

Description : I put this under acoustic even though I did use a couple midi tracks. I felt they sounded acoustic enough to put the track in that category. Suppose it could be chill out as well, however you want to label it, do so. I used an Indian flute and an electric guitar sounding plugin with some tremolo added along with acoustic guitar, mandolin and harmonica. Nothing too complicated here and I felt it sounded good enough to upload so enjoy!

Description : Written for Claudio's birthday (my Italian friend) in obvious waltz manner and with slight classical touch this tune appears to me almost painfully simple and minimalistic (and indeed it is)....and yet, Claudio who's very familiar with my music says that this is one of the nicest pieces of music I've ever written even if it wasn't his birthday present....well, who knows if he's right..:)^^

Description : This track contains only free loops from several Looperman artists. Had to thank once again the excellent loops to their owners - i think the result is one of my best tracks ever, plus have a slight spaghetti western like feeling which is cool ... Hope you will like it too. :)

Description : A rhythm guitar track I made and sent to my cousin on the East Coast. Made with Tape-A-Talk app. from the Google Play Store. Download and collaborate with it.

Description : Update: Thanks to the great great help of Orlando51 the track now is in its final state. He made the piano and violins sound really good together withthe guitar. Big question is if this needs vocals or if it is good as it is right now. Please comment your thoughts about it. Thank you Orlando51 for helping me out. You have my sincere gratitude!
