Description : This is the definitive version of my opening song of the album "Cthulhu Calling" now nearing completion. Of all my songs it is probably the most genuinely Krautrock and reveals my soul that for a piece is German as well as Italian. Your comments will be greatly appreciated, especially regarding the quality of the mix and the equalization. Update: new drumming.

    Marco,

    Pretty cool mix you have here. Actually what attracted me to check it out was the title. I first learned about Cthulhu playing D & D and reading H.P. Lovecraft back in the college days. I dig the track as I'm always hip to interesting and unique approaches to music and music interpretation. It very much reminds me of early Pink Floyd and how they used sound effects and soundscapes as integral components in their material. Props on the production here, it's very good, and I especially like your focus on movement. A lot of producers overlook this aspect of the recording or don't put enough emphasis on it. Another important component in this type of music is texture or how well the various layers of sound interact with each other. Things like melody, tempo, harmonics etc. and how well they are combined really define the overall quality of the mix. You pretty much nailed that too.

    If I was to find anything negative or had to nitpick something, I would say that as I listened I was hoping it would actually develop into something. It doesn't strike a chord, contain a rhythm or fully develop into a beat. Instead, the rhythm is intuitive and free-flowing. So essentially its a soundscape and cant be categorized as music. That's not a bad thing by any means, I'm just stating that as a listener I was left wanting or waiting on the music. However, Since you stated in your description that this will be the opening piece of your album, I feel that this is intentional and is essentially a 5 minute buildup to the first track of the album. Which makes me all the more impressed with your genius cause now I have to buy your album to see where this leads !!!

    Good stuff and nice marketing,

    Neo

    Dear Friend, I very much appreciated your in-depth analysis, you listened carefully and your comments are truly centered and precise. You are right in saying that this song does not have a traditional melody and evolution and you have well understood that it is essentially a soundscape which serves to introduce the rest of the album by gradually immersing the listener in Lovecraftian atmospheres. The rest of the album is designed to accompany the reading of HPL's works. In a few days I will receive printed copies of my CD "Cthulhu Calling", which will not be on the market, as I intend to give them to my friends. I also want to send a copy to all the friends of Looperman who have followed and encouraged me in recent months, so if you like I will send you one by post, to an address that is convenient for you to receive the package (write me in private to show me the address).
    A cordial greeting

    Marco, this is exceptional work. If they made candy for the ears, this would be it. As far as the mixing and mastering, I think it is spot on. There is a lot going on in this track, a lot of moving pieces traveling from one side of my head to the other. I'm not sure how you did it, but you allowed for that movement so I could still find each individual instrument without wondering what happened to it. As each instrument moves into another spectral space, another moved to occupy the spot it just left. Absolutely brilliant. This one is a master class in panning and balance. And it's really enjoyable as well. You should be proud. I hope all is well.

    Wow! How did I miss this track?
    I've got to pay closer attention to what's featured on LM.
    I know now, that if it's "Steronomicon to check it out.
    I think the title threw me.
    I love your work with evolving/rhythmic Synths. The foreground background panning is especially satisfying.
    I was thinking "Pink Floyd"at first, but I'd have to say, it's all you.
    I also like the sound of your new Drums.
    Great track...

    Marco, hello.

    I listened to this the other day, but unfortunately, I wasn't able to sit down and fully listen with intent. Today, I had the chance to revisit, and I'm glad I did.

    There are a few things I really like about this track.

    I use a lot of sound effects in my tracks to help build an ambiance, so using the water sounds in the beginning was a definite plus.

    I particularly enjoy how the sequenced bassline stays steady through the entire track, yet all of the other synths fade in and out of each other. Like elements mixing in water. The entire piece is very fluid and seamless. The combination of arps, sequences, and droning pads perfectly represent submarine-scapes. I particularly enjoyed the fact that it could be a much busier track, but it stays quite reserved, and with what you do have in there, it's not crowded. Everything about this song is the perfect representation of underwater life.
    The only thing I don't fully understand is the airy outro. For the entire track, we were submerged, but then it was a dry wind-like exit. To be clear, though, it's not a bad ending, or displeasant in any way. I still enjoyed it thoroughly. I just wasn't sure if we were being transported up and out of the water, or not.

    As far as the mix and equalization goes. Everything sounds good to me. It's crystal clear, it's fluid and dynamic. There is a lot of motion, it's a wide expansive sound. Nothing jumps out in the mix, nor does it duck behind anything. It's not a wall of sound that's too loud to listen to, but everything can be heard clearly.

    Overall, this is a high quality piece and I enjoyed listening to it.

    Take care.
    Aaron

    Dear Friend, I very much appreciated your comment, you made a very profound analysis and you listened with great attention and for this I thank you. In September the printed copies of my CD album "Cthulhu Calling" will arrive and I want to give them to my friends of Looperman who have followed me more carefully. If you like, you can send me your address to my contact, so I can send a copy to you too. As for the ending of the song, this is related to the history of the submerged city R'Lyeh where the great Cthulhu rests. This city is destined to re-emerge by bringing its terrible inhabitant back to the surface. A cordial greeting Marco

    I like the slow build in the intro. The arpeggio that comes in at 2:00 sounds great. The second arpeggio layer that comes in at 2:40 works well with the first. The long airy outro is really cool. Great track.

    So well balanced, gliding from structure to structure, excellent choice of sounds. The effects of the elements gives them the space, small rooms or sharpness they need, really good mastering from fade in to fade out - great work, sell it! ;)

    Perfect. I just made a nice cup of Chai Tea, Sat back and hit play to hear what my friend Marco has done with this. Love the bass intro fading in from the ocean. Cool the bass and the analoge toms are forbidding, then the squelchy synths remind you of some sick demented sea creature rising up. then the sequenced arpeggio synths are the people running away from the sea monster. The detuned choral synths represent people yelling, and the xylophone-like synths celebrate confusion. 3:18 is a subtle bass making you feel that the Monster is upon them, and the wispy synths are people being struck by its tentacled appendages. The white noise is the hopelessness of the situation for all the carnage wrought. The scene is now desolate. Yeah, I think you nailed the meaning of Cthulhu, and how´s that for a description. It was a really good cup of tea, and a good listen.
    Have a good night mate.

    Hi Steven! Your descriptions are incredible, full of fantasy and fascinating images and they give me great satisfaction when I read them. I believe you have a natural predisposition to writing short stories or perhaps books, which you could develop very well. Thanks and greetings, see you soon Marco

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.
