Description : A combination of psychedelic trance and glitch, with a touch of electrotribal brain manipulation. Inspired, for the most part, by my new friend Gymnopilus. The main modulated bass part was courtesy of my DIY modular synthesizer under MIDI control along with live manipulation. Main drums created from the Zoom RT-123. Has some glitchy percussion which was chopped from a crossbending session of Casio SK-1, megcos keyboard, and my modular. Some field recordings from the local farmers marker in 2015 are also present. 1 UP mushrooms for anyone who can identify where the other voice samples came from! Thank you for listening!

    Cool track. I did close my eyes for a bit and saw several of those fan powered wind tube people used to draw attention to a business flailing about in sequence with the music.

    I am relistening this morning, after a long hiatus from looperman. I've only listened to about half of it as I need to comment on a few tracks to get my own new one to appear. Your particular blend of spoken word, references in your grooves to established genres, and thoroughly unique soundscapes really distinguishes your work on this site. Dan

    " Some field recordings from the local farmers " was the most epic part from the description and I just knew that a good portion of entertainment
    is awaiting. Silverman said that he never knows what to expect...well, to a certain degree I could share his statement, yet my predominant feel is that I always know what to expect cause you never fail to deliver all sorts of goodies in your trademark fashion...creativity, inventiveness, extravaganza, healthy dose of craziness and sarcasm with loads of entertaining spirit. I'm enjoying this immensely while you're
    only confirming your legend status here on Looperman.

    Cheers my friend______Orlando

    I can think of very few received comments which were quite this positive and encouraging, and I thank you for it. The list of qualities which you expect from a song of mine - "creativity, inventiveness, extravaganza, healthy dose of craziness and sarcasm with loads of entertaining spirit" - they give me a lot of hope that I succeed in my intentions. It doesn't get much better than that!

    Since these field recordings were open air and crowded, they are not prime in any way, yet they still add some atmosphere and interest to an electronic song. I'd love to have better equipment for this sort of thing. My digital recorder is much better suited for small rooms. It does also seem good for EVP recording as well, since I picked up one of those in the local clinic waiting room.

    I appreciate you stopping by to listen and to encourage!

    Definitely tripping all the way through. I look separation of vocals on channels and effects. Love the synths

    Reply by Spivkurl

    Thanks my friend for taking a listen to something like this. I know a lot of people have trouble with longer songs, and a similar amount of people can't stand trance!

    Happy that you liked the synths! Since the bass was kind of in two parts, it took me a while to get the modular tuned just right. It didn't help that I composed the bass part, and then right after that we had record heat. The analog oscillators are sensitive to temperature, so the scaling was totally different when I went back to commit it to audio. Turned out though.

    The vocals were from varied sources, so it made sense to process them quite a bit differently. The field recordings were definitely the big challenge in this respect, since they were just made with a little pocket digital recorder... no fidelity, lots of background noise.

    I'm glad it was a good listen! Thank you, and have a nice day!

    Hey Spiv this one is fantastic i really like the direction you are going with your new friend this really is pumping. TOO STRONG heeeeeeee faved. best regards Robbie.

    Reply by Spivkurl

    Hey Robbie! Thanks for taking a listen! I'm pretty happy with how this one turned out, and also happy that it is finished... these long songs can be a real strain on the ears.

    My new friends are taking me where they want me to go, even if they don't go with me... soon they will be with me always, as long as they don't get angry.

    Ha ha, that "too strong" part worked all too well. So true though.

    Thanks again! Hopefully I'll have another new song soon, or at least a finished album to share.

    hey spiv,

    new track, new pleasure! there's something from the new wave period (eighties) in it. Some synth melody remembered me Depeche mode like "i can't get just enough" for example.
    Let me tell you that your new friend, Gymnopilus is particularly effective! it's a mushroom name? no? lol

    As usual, this track carries your own signature: It's creative with real one concerns of the detail! a big fav for me too!

    your friend

    Reply by Spivkurl

    Bleep, every time that a comment from you arrives, I always find myself eager to respond. Since I try to do those things in the order they are received, sometimes it takes a little while. It does not mean that I was any less eager!

    Depeche Mode is definitely an old favorite of mine, though I seem to listen to them less often these days. I know when my wife goes half a bottle of the wagon, we often end up listening to a bunch of their singles. We've been wanting to make a cover album, which would probably include a couple of DM tracks. My personal favorite album of theirs is "Ultra."

    You should get a prize for being the only one to identify my new friend as a mushroom! Yes, it is effective most assuredly. I have watched for them on my forest walks for about twenty years, and finally began locating them in late August. With the last patch found, I realised that I had been seeing them in previous years, but had mistaken them for something else. I guess that it is best to err on the side of caution, and wait for experience to catch up with interest.

    Trance-like aspects are definitely something which I would admit to having as part of my signature. The types of trance music (and types of trances) which I am influenced by change through the years, but they seem ever present. Even my first album in 2004 had some of my weak attempts to induce trance.

    Details are all important in music to me, most especially electronic music. Even a simple performance on an acoustic instrument can impart many minute details, even without intent. A lot of digitally based sound creation methods can be lacking in these sorts of details, which some might call mistakes and remove completely. There is a satisfying challenge in giving this sort of performance "quirk" in a digital method.

    Thank you for coming to listen to this one, and leaving your friendly words! Have an excellent full moon!

    I love spotting a Spivkurl!
    I never know what to expect.
    I read the description and still never know what to expect.
    I press play and .... away we go!
    Always a journey of some kind to some place and this time I've time travelled to late 70's early eighties Manchester North West England to the Hacienda club.
    This for me is all drugs and guns and alcohol and police raids.
    Amphetamine fuelled nights!
    Absolutely brilliant.
    Can't fault this powerful creation.
    I just know you were bouncing about while making this and not wanting the ride to end!
    A fave for sure.

    Reply by Spivkurl

    "I love spotting a Spivkurl" - I wonder if that's how the locals feel when they are driving and see me pop out of a forest out of nowhere. Doubt it!

    I do love the feeling of not knowing what to expect, which adds to the challenge of living life in a city. I used to know what to expect around here, and it was a comfort. Now I know what to expect, and it's a load of bollocks. So I change my perception by expecting sniper fire or a nuclear detonation... sad but true.

    The Manchester scene was definitely a big influence on me, especially early on. Joy Division, New Order, Bee Gees all had their place in my heart... in reverse chronological order. Never been too into guns, since if I were to kill I would go all out, Bonnie and Clyde style... good reason not to get started. I've had my love affairs with alcohol (still do) and amphetamine (in the past).

    I am a firm believer that "we are all on drugs all the time." Food is either drugs or medicine (drugs). Oxygen gets you high. The water we drink is inundated with various chemical substances, most often including steroids, cocaine, and pharmas. If you eat meat or dairy, then those can have some wild stuff interlaced, most recently ketamine. So, hey, if someone doesn't like drugs, it's probably time to go be a tibetan monk or something.

    I'm happy you enjoyed the unusual take on trance. There were points where I was bouncing about and not wanting the ride to end. At a point, when working on songs of this length, it gets a bit taxing. Hearing it all the way through over and over again eats up time like almost nothing else!

    Thank you for listening and leaving your consistently entertaining comments!

    Hey, this is fun to listen to. And i mean that in the best way for sure.
    Nice mix of sounds and directions. On some points i thought, oh Spivkurl goes mainstream but then it quickly changed into something different and cool.
    Really very successful stuff. Creativity is always a good thing and you have it for sure.

    stay tuned

    Reply by Spivkurl

    "Spivkurl goes mainstream" it sounds like a funny name for an album! But seriously, I just enjoy making trance pretty often, to the point where it infects a lot of the other styles of DAW based music I do. All the more reason to rely upon my computer less, right?

    I like doing fun electronic styles with weird vocal clips and field recordings mixed in. It seems that even if the music is a bit bland or standard, those things can add a lot of interest, sometimes one of a kind interest.

    The ripped samples still have not been identified by any listeners, which does not surprise me... but the gymnopilus reference in my description has been identified, which does surprise me.

    I always enjoy reading your comments, even on other people's songs. I appreciate that people like yourself would even bother listening to my stuff, and that fact alone makes this site pretty freakin cool! Thanks for your input! Have a good day!

    My new favorite track from you, that bass is just pounding!

    Reply by Spivkurl

    I don't understand why, but I've tried to reply to your comment several times at this point... it keep tripping some sort of security issue on the server.

    Suffice it to say that your comment is much appreciated! It's good to have you hear to listen to my stuff! Thanks!
