Progressive would probably work, but you can't select that, so maybe cinematic?

All the best music is difficult to pin down.

The mix is great. The music is well written and arranged. It kinda reminds me of Avatar (band), less the death metal.

Nice work.

Wow, thanks for sharing spear, I'm a big fan of Micky, he knows, he's got funk and rythme, like me, he's just a better producer I'm a dancer first so it's instinctive, was introduced to your voice earlier on Stevens, it's great. I to have been working on my Halloween piece, it's been ready for a fortnight I was waiting for the beginning of Oct, I've gone totally different to this stunning piece,

great to hear this again, this time round I paid more attention to the lyrics (and googled the poem). Had to laugh that it was her dear, true hearted pooch in the end burying a bone!

Hola spearcarrier no he podido evitar comentar otra vez tu pista, y resaltar la calidad de las voces y de la melodía. Es especial, muy agradable. Enorme tema. Salud y paz.

Really lovely track - the duet reminds me of the nick cave and pj harvey henry lee track (though that's quite different). Great stuff.

And here it is.
A quick workup

Awesome track, I have in my head an awesome remix idea to make this into a dance groove.
RitajustRita 16th Sep 2021 03:05 - 2 years ago
Wow!! Great it!!

Ahh I love Halloween songs, we have a tradition here on looperman of doing them and posting them, so please make sure you re-post this in October. This reminds me slightly of priest (not judas, but the remenants of the original backing band of Ghost). I will post a reference. This is awesome. great mix, awesome composition.

I thoroughly enjoyed this fun piece, love the melody and especially love when the vocals go high - oh yeah, that is a great sound.
Indieground 6th Jul 2021 09:49 - 3 years ago
I wouldn't say spookie or experimental
More pop reggaeish 80's vibe track to me
ok that's not a specific genre either
But it's a cool track guys, well done

Very experimental man! Dope stuff!
daydreamnightdream 5th Jul 2021 06:01 - 3 years ago
Very spooky! I love it!

This track is so clean and refreshing. It sounds like you and Micky are in the same room, the vocals are great and the background music is perfectly matched to the vocals.
Great Track. Faved

Gran pista, donde sobresalen vuestras voces perfectamente acopladas. La música perfecta resaltando con fuerza el mensaje de esta obra de arte. Realmente un lujo que cuanto más lo escuchas más te va enganchando. Bien por los dos.

Wow awesome, this is something I am not used to hear at looperman,
and I of course mean that in a good way.
This is some high level artistic stuff I hear, great job on the vocals.
The backing track is simple but it totally suits it.
Looove the flute twist at 2:50

Spoopy is my new favorite word. Thanks for that :D

I think it has potential for a halloween track. The mix balance could be a little tighter to allow for bus compression to bring up over-all levels.
It would be a shame not to hear it next to other halloween songs if the perceived volume is lower than the other tracks.
Running it through LANDR can help give you an idea of how it would "bloom" under mastering compression if you aren't sure.
Vocals and the composition are complimenting each other nicely.
Good work here!
Very spoopy stuff! :D

Tee hee! "Spoopy" was popular very shortly. Someone made a typo and it stuck for a while. I used it here because of filk, which is a genre that got it's name from a typo; spoopy filk is what I call filk that has to do with spoopy stuff. =^-^=

When you got to the technical advice, you lost me... thank goodness you didn't lose Micky. (LOL) He's going to recompress and I'll re-upload. While waiting for the new file I'm going to try to learn about blooming, LANDR, and bus compression.

Rather interesting, if not low key track. Nice use of synths & the vocal is nicely mixed. Good one.
spearcarrier replied 29th Jun 2021 - 3 years ago
Thanks! I also think it's low key; mellow.
theHumps 27th Jun 2021 12:50 - 3 years ago
This is cool! I like the space in the song, there's plenty going on but it's wide open in the mix. Lyrics/singing are interesting, giving the song a darker theme.

Great job turning a poem into music, i think it captures the idea Hardy had perfectly.

Suena nítido... Me gusta.
Zootman 27th Jun 2021 05:17 - 3 years ago
Vibing on this one. Love the music, melody and lyrics. Awesome work. Genre? Maybe folk? Who cares, I'm a sucker for that weird tag anyway.
spearcarrier replied 27th Jun 2021 - 3 years ago
You are so kind, and we're both so happy to know you like it. :-) Micky really outdid himself this time.

Description : Updated 1/7/2023. This is a progressive fusion flavored jazz number. I called on fellow Looperman DISCIPLINE to season this composition with that FIRE GUITAR, and he did! Let me know your thoughts on this one. Enjoy.

Description : Now on youtube:, soon out on my upcoming album "Step by Step"!
Inspired by a track of Pseudoble. I was noodling along to his track "I wish I didn't know" (which is awesome) and had the words "Snow in Athens" in my head. This with the smooth jazz/fusion atmosphere led me to this track with a sort of Steely Dan feel.

Description : Psychedelic blues hip hop with lead banjo and acoustic resonator slide guitar. Acoustic drum kits, fat basslines, soaring filtered strings, some strong Eastern elements (from guitar and strings), some dub and funk from the bass and drums and a bit of rocking electric guitar. Very unusual piece of music and a trip like no other I've heard. Some of it is like a dark, deep Southern delta blues track over a hip hop and dub backing. All played and programmed by me, no loops used.

Description : the rise of AI
this i would describe as hip-hop space rock, last night of the proms sort :))
its different, a fusion of genres, this is all played by me, no loops. got a little more music theory now, so put it to the test.
its my first attempt at writing something myself and hopefully show i can produce a bit too. i wanted all the instruments to have their place but to shine alone, let me know if you think i achieved my description.

Description : Return To Forever was a group that started my love of fusion jazz and this is my attempt to cover their 1976 track, “The Romantic Warrior. I know I wore out several inceptions of this album from LP, cassette and 8 track. The original track was over 10 minutes long, so I abridged it some. Hope you like and download.

Description : A moroccan traditional song from 70s titled "Toudart" which means "Life" in Moroccan berber/Tamazight, revived and composed in a modern way, I used minor2go's piano loop which you can hear on the background, everything elese is from me.

Description : Found some 70's funk drum loops that I liked and added some funk horn loops. Then I found some effects and percussion loops that worked well with the bass loops I found. Yeah, all loops but 1 vocal track of mine. :) Funk/fusion? Might be cool to have some hip hop styled vox on this, any takers?

Description : It is pretty hard to set a genre to this music sorry. So if someone have a better idea about what genre it is feel free to tell me.For that one I focused on the melodies instead the complexity (a lot of instrument with fx). So basically this tune is a piano one featuring piano, organ and 2 synths only no drum or fx.All those instrument follow the same melodie(composed by myself took me hours for that XD) The name is due my mom loved that one as the one I did for her long time ago.This is more a experimentation for me so plz have that in mind when you will write a comment.Also there are a surprise at 1:42 min.Hope you will enjoy this one.I also profit to say all my works will be avaliable to download without having to post a comment for the may 30 only.the reason is a mystery.

Description : I don't know what genre this would be. First track I've ever put up here. This is probably more gaming music than anything else.
