Description : I wanted to make something that felt mechanical and cold. Let me know if I hit the mark.
Update: adjusted mix to make more room for vocals. Some parts are still a trade off between instrumentation and vox, I feel this is the right mix. It's also mastered.

    one of your best, I think...

    hello TA!


    your voice is too good for this style but we know don't have to work with it more unless that change what Bleep suggest is under cosideration...:-)

    I very much enjoyed this track and you'll get many positive comments on this to make sure you are on the right way...:-)

    handshake, fav, Danke

    Hey Danke!

    Thank you for your high praise. This is not a vocal style that I will be sticking with. I may use similar techniques in later tracks, but only if it fits the song.
    I appreciate the idea of using female vocals and I think it is quite a good idea. However, it's a trial to find the right person, then get them to have the right sound, then mix them into a track that I haven't prepared for female vox. Saying that, I am looking into making a track with a female singer at a later date. So watch this space.

    Thanks again,

    Hello T.A,

    Nice surprise on this sound, full of melancholy inspiring me a desert and chaotic land under a grey and rainy sky... Your voice, as usual, make the job, and is perfectly served by instrumentation! Thanks for writing the lyrics, for those like me who don't understand all, it's cool to read your words and catching the real message. No doubt, It's contribute to the atmosphere of the song!

    There are, however, something Ive less enjoyed during my hrearing: it's about the voice which looks like a robot... if all the others vocals effects are really great in the track, this one, i don't like it... I know that it was a part of the purpose you were searching, but For me, I think you can easily replace this robot voice by a womans voice!

    Being a big fan of the band The Cure, you imagine what a special affection I have for all that is melancholy, and inevitably, I find a touch of cure in your writing, probably at the level of the rhythmic.

    Very nice inspiration in this song and of course a big fav!

    Hey BLEEP. Thank you for your insightful, reasoned response. I experimented a lot with the vox and I agree that some are more appealing than others, but I do think it fits the nature of the song. I wanted it to be a little abrassive because of the dark subject matter.
    I'm also a massive fan of The Cure and they probably do have an subconcious effect on my music.

    Thanks again,

    Nice chill and grungy track, need a little more work with your levels esp. vocals as said before, but great start. :)

    Thanks Alien. I've listened to people's responses and tweaked the mix. It's been very helpful to get a concensus on what needs to be done.

    reminds me of a weird mix of ultravox (Piano drums) Lincoln park (Chord progression) and interpol (vox delivery). Really compelling dark song you can build on. I liked it a lot.

    Reply by toastedavalanche

    Thanks Cru. That's a lot of cool influences you've suggested. I didn't have those guys in mind, but I'm happy to lie and say that is exactly what I was going for :P

    OK. I very much liked this track. And yes, you got the mechanical/cold feel you were aiming for. The melody was spot on for the track.

    And, the vocal was excellent, in my view. I really liked it. But, I think it was set too low in the mix. I think that might have been was centralsdev was suggesting. That particularly applies to the sections where you pitched up the vocal. It was barely detectable above the backing track.

    I've done that on some of my tracks where I, very reluctantly, had to do the vocal myself. I'm a lousy vocalist, so I bury the vocal on purpose. Your vocal was perfect for the track, so there was no need to do that.

    Now I'm going to search your profile to see if you've posted other good stuff! :)

    Reply by toastedavalanche

    Thank you for your insightful response. I am guilty of trying to hide my vocals, especially when I try something new like this.
    I've taken your advice and adjusted the levels. I hope you also enjoy my other tracks.

    It's kinda doomy. Like "this person's making me sick" sort of a thing. I like that. Cool track.

    you should work some more on your vocal!

    Reply by toastedavalanche

    That's a fair but vague comment. Is the mixing and processing the problem? Or do you feel it's a bad performance? I'm okay with either criticism, it helps to know so that I can change it.

Description : Just like the first EP "OGOU", this production focuses on organic elements with drum samples.It contains modern sounds such electronic down-tempo, future bass,and hip-hop, which makes the music sound old and new at the same time. With heavy sampling of African chants and sound generated from other tribes, this is production will bring more flavor and enjoyment--it's like Africa to your Ears.

Description : After a major uphill battle completing this song and turning it into what it is now, I feel some amount of satisfaction. It was like reality wanted me to give up or something. It's done... phew... Have updated this almost completely, from repatching the modular bass, playing some guitar parts, adding electric piano and synth lead, redoing and tuning the DW-6000 synth, of course adding my vocals, and mixing and mastering. It really has become pretty new wave, like much of my stuff does recently. Have added the lyrics as well. I am proud and happy with it, and I hope you all enjoy listening! UPDATE... woohoo just broke 1000 plays on this track here at looperman!
***original description***
Hey finally here with a new track! I'm not sure what to call this other than electronic, due to the high tempo. This is the first song finished using my interface which allows direct MIDI control of my modular synthesizer. The mid frequency bass part is all from that patch. There are tracks designed with my Zoom RT-123 drum machine, the microkorg, and the circuit bent KORG DW-6000. Other than that it is just a kick and snare drum sample, and a a quick vocal snippet. So I guess it's fairly minimal in that respect. Would like to hear the Looperman community's thoughts on this song! Thank you for listening

Description : The answer to Close Encounters is Hymn Of The Pleiades.This is a strictly groove track where the elements of ambient meets electronic funk and Hip Hop. Track was recorded, mixed and mastered using Mixcraft Pro Studio 6 software. Results were achieved by using a FATA Studio 90 MIDI keyboard ran through a E-MU Proteus 2000 sound module, - for the phat funky bass synth. I also used a KORG O5R/W sound module for the retro lead synth parts and ambient sound pads.
I utilized what was essentially a old school Hip Hop drum track, arranged and beefed it up for that extra umh! I greatly appreciate all the positive feedback the track has garnered thus far. Keep listening and by all means, your comments are much welcomed... thanks.

Description : This coming from the New Project called, "World Futurism."

it's a production inspired by various tribes like Africa,Asia, North America. And with some heavy bass and synth sound, we got something refreshing to the ears.

I know I have promised a lot you that I will finish it but never did. However, I am for real this time.

Description : This one has a lot of changes. Pretty unique. Lots of dubstep sounds, glitch and other sounds. I always enjoy listening back to it. Throw on some headphones, crank it up, and experience the awesomeness of this epic electronic composition.
