Nice work mate - I think we are on a similar learning curve - except you are ahead of me! - I hear many of the things I like and some of the same questions I have ...I mean questions around how to introduce a little more variety and structure but how in doing so not loose the edge or sense of novelty in the track

Welcome back brother, it's so good to hear your music again. Bravo xstokes, I love the tripiness of this track. I hear a lot of cool elements that blend well together, especially the synths selection. I think the vox sounded splendid and it is a wise choice to compliment the music. Oustanding production, keep it up :)

This is a great piece of music which could well be double the length with things happening - it wouldn't get bored. You have a good way with synths ...

Loving the sound of your bass guitar here! I'm also digging your intro/build up too. For my ears though I wonder if you were able to change up the velocity of hi hat stokes? To me they all sound too similar and it feels a little too machine like, unless that was an intentional choice. I also feel like the vocals maybe don't quite fit with your track, they feel almost like an afterthought. That's just my opinion of course. :) I really like your track though and think maybe a few tweaks here and there would make it even better. Thanks for sharing!

hey todd! thank you so much for the great feedback, man. i’m pretty primitive, you know, and sometimes that’s a favorable attribute and then sometimes it just ain’t. with the hats i was aiming for an eno-type ‘rhythm bed’ to underpin what i wanted to be overtones. my reach far exceeds my grasp. ah, but i am in love with the pellas, it’s my setting that does the disservice.

Excuse me so much, I entered a comment by mistake intended for another song. The right comment for your song is the following: The use you make of the dissonant chords with respect to the voice is interesting and creates a situation of suspension and mystery. The percussion sounds good even if at times I feel distortions caused by the high level of recording. A cordial greeting

xstokes replied 3rd Jul 2020 - 3 years ago
i truly am happy you gave a listen, thank you for the perceptive comments. it’s hard to get distortion right, i appreciate you pointing me in the right direction

I really like these sounds, the right amount of aggression for a singular and interesting song. The distorted glissato sound that punctuates the whole piece is beautiful. I also appreciate the minimalist arrangement structure. A cordial greeting

That dissonant sound that creeps in on the delay is cool. The vocals add to the feel of the song, pain, hurting but a sense of hope is there. Gave it a few listens, a bit cinematic as well, would work in a psychological thriller.

Cool!

Description : This is my newest creation, at a stage very near to completion. No third-party mastering or mixing, as with all my tracks. Just have to fix a few tiny things. I FINALLY WAS ABLE TO MIX EVERYTHING IN THE SAME SESSION. This song has all human-played instruments - no quantization or MIDI! My brother does all the vocals except for the interlude part, which I do. My other brother plays the rhythm guitar (a Gibson Les Paul Custom - only one of 12 in the world!!) and I play the accompanying guitar (a Johnny Mar Jag and PRS). He has a lot of guitars :P A good friend of ours, Ronnie, plays the bass and another friend, Freddie, plays the drums. The drum track was done in one take (had to use an electric drum set due to time constraints - but acoustic kits are so much better). Overall, pretty satisfied with the result. Let me know your thoughts.

Description : The first track I sing on. Cheap stage mic & no fancy plugins. Heavily guitar laden to the point it's got a bit of a shoegaze thing going on. I pulled the lyrics out of my ass & yes, they're a bit silly.

Description : BIG UPDATE 26/02/2014 - So, this was an 18 min track that I have now successfully split in two. 2nd half I uploaded a few weeks ago (Things That Should Always Be, with the bouncy 2 min reggae intro). This is the first half, which has a new mix, a mega chill, meditative ending and a little jazz thrown in for good measure. Takes a few minutes for beat to really kick in. Constantly evolving electric guitar, bass guitar, acoustic drums and lead banjo driven by fat, busy 80BPM grooves with a bit of a reggae and shuffle feel. Also: synth choir voices, dulcimer, violin, cello, shimmering pads. Builds up gradually to nice and rocking and then gets taken back down for the big comedown chill. I really don't know what sort of genre this is except 'far out'. I think it sounds more like a live band than one guy playing instruments and manipulating a DAW. Not my best track but a bit of blissful, sunny island fun. Real positive vibe here so I hope you give it a chance to unfold and unfurl. Sit back, clear your schedule and immerse yourself in these trippy sonic experiments cooked up deep in my off-planet underground laboratory. I have to send the MP3 to Earth via space courier (not cheap).

Description : This track was like the inhale after an exhale of aggressive industrial-electro-sludge tracks that I had put out that summer and fall. This was the more reserved, and introspective winter track. It's nothing spectacular, but I still really enjoy it. I hope you do too. Take care. V.
