Description : I had no particular intention doing this, but then it just came on me out of nowhere....How to make an antithesis Halloween work!? Prior to that there were no plans to make a track for the occasion, furthermore I've never been really interested in such a thing. It always seemed a bit silly to me if not outright childish. But then I remembered the Interview with The Vampire and Bram Stoker's Dracula. My gosh, there was some peculiar romanticism in there and I probably don't have to tell you twice that this must be a bait for Orlando, as is a cup of fresh young blood for a vampire...:) Furthermore I like people who are different, so I just have to like vampires who a different as well...hehe...so it should be dawning on you by now that this won't be your standard Halloween tune...haven't I mentioned "antithesis"? So...no growling zombies, midnight cemetery bells, creaking doors or any of your favourite horror sounds, although it's still a little bit darker in tone...hell yeah, vampires are still vampires...haha...but this one is mainly about a vampire desperately in love with a young lady, craving for her as a madman...I won't tell whether she's also a vampire or not, cause you might figure it out listening to the track...^^ Otherwise it was about time for me to come up with a new solo work, since I've been almost exclusively doing collabs in those past few months (which I love ofcourse)...afteral you can always ask Ed...:)^^____Happy Halloween folks!:)

    Superb!
    Production, composition, arrangement, choice of sounds, everything at the highest possible levels. Simply perfect.
    The "fil rouge" is the bass-pattern which flows under the other instruments for the whole song, constant and "beating" like the time that flows (vampires story here, we speak about centuries not years).
    Piano work is probably what stands out but the whole arrangement is of the finest.
    You are a real talent!

    Amazing piece of art and composition you have achieved here, very pleasing to the senses!

    I particularly enjoyed the mid-section, when things got a bit more minimal. The percussion with the viola switching to the guitar and piano jamming... great! The whole thing had an awesome stereo field, but that percussion of that section stood out especially.

    I used to watch the two films you mentioned quite a lot, and overall they were a pretty respectful take on vampires. They're just another species present on earth, after all... they deserve respect... he he

    Very cool craftsmanship my friend! I found it excellent! Fave!

    I think you should be pushing this to a film/tv company.

    Dear Maestro! (how do you know this word?)

    Listened to it cca 5 times, didn't want to write quick report...

    Your art is exceptional...every note has an own feeling...it's funny cause 75% of your works are jam...but it tells the story for the listener for sure...not necessarily about the title but it's not a problem, we can build our stories around...
    my favourite is the last part from around 3.47 when some kinda guitar appears to build to huge groovy...

    10/10

    all my hats off while giving my hand to shake...:-)

    Danke
    Orlando51
    Reply by Orlando51 Yeah, my friend...this one is pretty jammy too, but it has its little structures within to bring up some bigger picture
    and kinda story feel. Nice that you're pointing to your favourite part....always good to know.
    Thank you so much for this very positive and generous feedback...always highly appreciated! Special thanks also
    for the'fav' and 'dl'....means alot!:)

    Hey Leon ardo,
    Do you know that our friend Silverman is selling Ice cream now?
    I think it is time for me to make an ICE CREAM track for him now???
    What do you think????
    Majid
    Orlando51
    Reply by Orlando51 Oh, yes...ofcourse I know...:) I usually eat ice cream only in summertime so I' might not be buying much for now...haha
    ...but since it seems you have a knack to make songs on
    different Silverman's affairs, it might well be a nice opportunity for another one...:) I'm curious even if it's almost winter...^^

    I still think it is absolutely one of your best Leon...I didn`t a-b it with the other version but as you mentioned the production may be kicked up a notch in this one....In any case....it is a superb piece of musical art in every regard....Bravo........Ed
    Orlando51
    Reply by Orlando51 Welcome my friend!

    If you say so, then it must be so...maestro can't be wrong,
    so I'm gladly accepting it as one of my best...afteral that
    was briefly my own first thought when I finished it (been extremely pleased with it) but soon the next day I wasn't so sure anymore. I'm also glad you're noticing the slight improvement compared to the SC mix. Sometimes the quick made things are the best ones. It took me 2-3 days from the intial few bangs on my keyboard to the first mix and mastering (SC mix), but then it took me another whole day to make aforementioned improvements, but I guess it was more hairsplitting than anything else...haha...

    Thank you so much Ed for stopping by for another listen and for telling me some generous words that I won't easily forget ! I'm also most grateful for the 'fav'...
    ...means the world!:)

    Whoa ! I have always been impressed with your work Orlando but man this is quite frankly on a different level, maybe even the highest I have seen here. I am totally blown away by this ! It's an amazing piece in every sense. I don't even want to present anything specific in fear that I may embarrass myself. As I listened I was trying to think of the word to describe the style or feel I was getting from it and then I read Steve's comment and there it was...Victorian. Even though the typical Halloween tracks usually include varying amounts of cliche sound effects, which I'm not opposed to because they are mainly part of the fun aspect and what most consider Halloween to be about. It is good that you kept this clean and retained its serious nature. You know I once met a real vampire? Oh yes, Vampires are real. There is actually a huge cult following that exists world wide. But I met this girl many years ago who confessed to me she was a vampire and tried to get me to stay with her and join her family as she described it. Her apartment was kept very dark (she had aluminum foil over all her windows), She had blood in jars in her refrigerator and I saw pictures of ritual parties that included blood letting. She even had her canine teeth shaped into fangs in her mouth. Needless to say, I only went on the one date. She scared me to no end but did open my eyes to accept and believe that certain things exist that we would like to think don't. Excellent track my friend. Straight to fave and download !

    Much pleasure to hear from you again after quite some time!
    I have to admit immediately that it's real rarity to receive such a positive and comprehensive feedback. I must
    say I'm truly honoured by all that positivity you're showing. Very surprising and amusing is also your story about the vampire girl. You should introduce her to me one day...:)^^

    Hello Orlando.
    I just was listen to some of my loved stuff and said to me - well Joe go to looperman and see what music is around - and in mind i told myself - well it is not really fair to listen to some so good music and then go to the loop, cause it is always hard for the most to stand against (or at lest on) the high standarts of professional stuff. But you did it! Really well done in all ways. Sounds, mix, composition, feeling and so on. What can or shall i say? Very professional stuff and i can really enjoy listen to this kind of music. Ok, not really Halloween feeling inside but that makes it even better :)
    Very pleasant one and sure one of the best songs in that style here on looperman.

    stay tuned

    Always a pleasure to hear from you! This wasn't really ment as a typical halloween tune, maybe even the opposite of it
    but I think it still preserves some nods for the occasion.
    I'm really glad and grateful for your very positive and generous feedback...it's even a rarity to receive such a favourable review....thank you so much for that!:)

    Your description was certainly helpful in understanding how you approached the concept of this track and went about it's execution. A listener can sink his teeth into a romantic, cinematic, vampire ballad which has me oozing blood out of every pore, it's really neck and shoulders above what I expected.

    Fangs a lot for posting this!

    Helloooo Leon ardo,
    Wow mate this is your best work so far.
    I really love it so wonderfully crafted that shows the height of your professionalism.
    Really really well done mate
    This is the easiest Fav’s so far for me.
    Jamid
    Orlando51
    Reply by Orlando51 Wow my dear friend...your words may well be far too generous. As a complete amateurish musician I'm light years away from any kind of professional standards. And again, is
    this my best work so far? To tell you the truth, when I finished it I was incredibly satisfied with it and for the brief moment I really had that glimps of thought "Could this be my finest hour to date?" But when I listened to it again
    next morning I was horrified, cause everything suddenly sounded terrible to my senses and I just wondered what made me so positive the evening before? The question of mood maybe? Possible! After making some slight changes on the mix I now stand somewhere in between and I think it's nothing more than good enough to share it here with my dear looperfriends like you Jamid.
    Yet I'm extremely glad that you like it and that you perceive it on such a high level....thank you so much for that...and for the 'fav' ofcourse..:)

    Hi Orlando.

    I'm liking the subject matter. Interview with a Vampire is a classic Gothic horror with it's dark, erotic romanticism. Your narrative is a nice variation of those themes. On to the song....
    I like the slow build, a fade in from black, setting the scene. The intro piano line with it's irregular stabs and key strokes helps create a tone between threatening and melancholy.
    at 1:10 - do i detect a hint of Tubular bells in the background. And again at 1;50. Whether intentional or not, it's a cool reference.
    The reverb is well thought out in this track. The violins give a lot of airy space for the song to breathe. The drums feel slightly more oppressive and the piano dances between the two.
    Overall a great track. It drips with melancholy, mystery and dark passion.

    Well done sir.

    TA
    Orlando51
    Reply by Orlando51 Hi mate...In the meantime I did some minor changes on the intro arrangement...made it a bit more minimalistic thus raising the tension and I hope it's for the better. As far as Tubular bells are in question I have to say that it's more coincidental than intentional...ofcourse I'm aware of it, but those influences are more or less lurking in subconsciousness and sometimes they just find the way out when the time is right. On the other hand drums are alwaysa my weak point and I think it won't be any better..haha..better that I just simply accept the fact. We all have our pros and cons and so be it...:)
    Anyways I have to say big thank you for this comprehensive and friendly feedback....means alot!

Description : HEY, hey guys...IM BACK! and it feels amazing. I took a month or so off to work thru some shit, and in that time i bring you this. Personally my best work so far imo. I may add lyrics to it eventually, but not sure yet. The original has a longer beginning for that reason. Thanks to chanho17 for uploading great piano loops for use. let me know what you think!
Description : First off, I am a huge fan of the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy and "The Hobbit." After watching all of the movies (including the final chapter of the Hobbit", I was motivated to write something that I thought might work with their journey home.

Samplitude has a couple of great new VST's, one called "World Flutes" and the other "Celtic Harp" and I used both of them in this song. I created every last note on this one. Guitars were all Fenders, soft synths besides the Samplitude items mentioned previously were created in the SynthMaster series by KVR, and the strings were created with Samplitude's "String Ensemble."

Not sure about the mix (my hearing is shot), so most of the mixing is done by sight instead of listening. If you hear something way out of whack, let me know. If you are interested in taking this one further, let me know and I'll post a link to the stems. Thanks to the Hobbit for the inspiration and to you for listening.

EDIT: I've had some requests for the individual instrument stems so here is the link to all of those files. The tempo is 80bpm. Feel free to do whatever you want with this one.

https://www.mediafire.com/?vzbi2scw8vc7cws

EDIT: I've had over 200 downloads of the stems, so if you have done anything with them it would be cool to hear it (thanks for the interest).

Description : Ok...here it is! Another colab with maestro Tumbleweed! Ed provided the unfinished, basic track...I composed and recorded the long intro using different synths and then added piano (well to the fore) and some brass arrangements along the rest of the track (no violin this time...hehe) and then did the final mixing to wrap it up as it is presented now. I hope you will enjoy it and we both appreciate your listening time and your valuable comments:) Otherwise all thanks to Ed!

Description : Recently I decided to explore some darker themes for weeks to come (not counting possible collab
releases). This is the first one of a kind although it's not entirely on the dark side. I think it preserves that peculiar romanticism of mine, so I see it also as an atempt to mix and
balance the moods to give it a bit of uniqueness I guess...and don't bother about the genre...I just had to put it somewhere..:)^^
*UPDATE* 15th August 2015: I shortened the intro a bit to make it more concise and to maybe improve the listenability of the track as a whole!

lemme tell you about story of the music...
first it starts from WorldWar2, one of the most sadly years for human. then after the war, you can see people are happy, kids are playing, but after some years, you can see the world is getting ready for the WorldWar3 and then you can hear the rest of the story in music...

Description : This time around I made a rare exception in terms of my usual way of doing things. In most cases I avoid using samples, loops or any other kind of pre-recorded material due to my strong preference of making music from scratch! Yet, here is one of those rare occasions where I decided to combine my recently composed and recorded material with some samples from Magix sound library. And here is the result...not necessarily cinematic...but you know..:)^^ Any comments appreciated!

Description : 1906 was the year of the largest emigration wave of Sicilians to America. Sicily, the cradle of mafia and vendeta, and the land of poverty. Why did I compose this? Coincidentaly, last week I was watching again all three "Godfather" movies after a long time (Marlon Brando is still my favourite actor), so I got an idea! The sentiment of leaving beloved homeland and family in desperate search for a better future is the key here to capture. Human heart in sadness but full of hope ! Mediteranean flavour mixed with almost classical elements prevails in this little extra offer. Not a cup of tea for everyone then...probably only for those who are able to survive all that orlandesque trumpery.:) It's a tricky one...ok?

Description : The song is meant to depict the weather here on the coast of Florida on a typical summer day. We often get the chance of severe thunderstorms and often tornadoes but the day doesn’t usually start that way. Light breezes and warm temps make for a great day until the storm hits and all hell can break loose!

I asked Dave if he would like to help with the bass guitar on this track and in return he essentially gave me two tracks. In the first part of the song he uses his new bass guitar in which he personally designed and built from blocks of wood. It has a beautiful jazz sound and really adds to the feel of a light breezy morning. In the second part of the song, Dave uses his Precision Fender bass to give the song a little more attack during the part with the storm kicks in. I used several instruments in Ableton’s orchestra pack and added plenty of live instruments. I used delay extensively in this track and even tried my slide on my electric guitar for the first time to represent the wind.

It was certainly a pleasure working with Dave on this track and he added an certain element with his style of playing and sound that goes beyond what I could've put down so I appreciate Dave's input immensely and I'm quite pleased with the track!

Enjoy!
