Description : Been out with a bad back the past few weeks so I didn't play any guitars on this one. It's all loops from Ableton, Adobe, EZ Drummer and packs I've accumulated over the years. Weird/industrial/post apocalyptic theme. Vocals have some level or none of the following: guitar amp, overdrive, vocoder and other effects.

    Shockingly kool Wayne. You definitely got the vocals for this one. Your song is like something from a movie or tv show tune. You did not hold back in the least bit. This is not weird, because it has a purpose. It is a fun-ny song. Well done.

    Thanks man!

    Tried to make the music sound like it wasn't in any particular key, monotone/bland bass sounds and abstract industrial noises. My mom said it sounded like it should be on tv as well so cinematic in some way.

    Nice one, Wayne! It's been a while since I heard a song from you. The intro was very fascinating. I loved the experimentation with loops in this track. I don't know why but I got super Halloween vibes from this one, almost a nightmare before Christmas sort of thing. That works perfectly since Halloween is right around the corner. Your voice never disappoints and I was happy to hear it once again. As usual, great track. Adding to my favs.

    A Nightmare Before Xmas, I liked that movie a lot, cool reference!

    I usually don't use loops, as a practice, as the main foundation of my tracks so when I do it's a lot of fun experimenting with sounds and effects I normally don't use.

    Thanks!

    But where they gonna run to?! One out of the box from you Wayne, I thoroughly enjoyed this. Drums were great and the little breakdowns were cool to spice things up. That telephone sound reminded me of one I used a while back in my reggae tune. It sets the ambience really well. All over noone home. Felt like this could almost have had some down and dirty electric guitar hitting those down beats maybe.

    I'm gonna use poetic license to answer your question. They just ran away. ;)

    Jeff Lynne used a ringing telephone loop in Telephone Line and I remember hearing it in another song(Beatle's song maybe).

    Just playing with loops and effects. I thought of elec git but was still sore in the back, just started sitting up in front of a computer actually when I did this.

    Thanks!

    Pretty atmospheric track. A real spectrum behind the vocals opening the mind to all the sounds happening in the background and the reasoning for them. Great track full of innovation and risk. Score !

    Thanks Bill!

    Just playing with some sounds and effects that don't get much attention from me. Some great stuff in these daws if you spend some time listening and trying to process/manipulate them to get a desired effect. Sure different than plugging in a git and ripping out a track in a minute or two.

    Hi TheHumps, this is nice, really smooth; really great use of the drum loops, really good selection and variety. It actually didn't feel at all weird (genre). It's smooth, I thought of triphop as I was listening. The only element that didn't really fit (to me) was the vocals; I felt like the drums were driving the vocals rather than helping it, and vice versa. It doesn't feel it has a theme. Thanks for sharing. Hope your back isn't something too serious and you're better.

    Thanks! Life long back prob that flairs up occasionally, I'll live. :)

    I guess without the vocals there isn't much of a story. The effects on them were there to help set the atmosphere and overall feel of the track. Appreciate the feedback!

    That wasnt what I was expecting from what Ive heard from you before but it's wonderful and I do recognise some of what I have already loved in your work. This is a little more alt. but still very rich, creative, engaging, and rich in rhythm and melody. Great stuff : )

    Wayne.
    What's that? GREAT. Never thought you would do something like that. I asked myself if it's good for you to have a bad back sometimes. I like your style and your music but inbetween it's also good to hear something like that from you. The lyrics...as always, a punch in the face. Don't want to say it but...more please. I hope you don't forget to make your clasical style now, I would miss it. Very well done. Really.
    If you don't mind, i think the voice can be a little louder at some points. What I really like are the sounds inbetween and the use of dramatic vocal distortions they fit so well with lyrics. I'm impressed. A cinematic, weird and a little rap style, with your style of singing.
    Greetings

    Every once in a while I'll throw some loops together and make something a little bit different. The subject is done often, I've heard many songs about this topic.

    No, a bad back is not needed to make songs! lol Life long back issue that kicks in once every few years. I couldn't even sit up for a week, getting better tho.

    Thanks Matthias!

    I listened to this & felt compelled to comment, this is outstanding! work! The track absolutely opens up the imagination & gives it wings fly & also to feel the vibes running through the track of what it would be like. Not to mention the amazing lyrics that gives flesh to it all. The picture is clear & and this is seriously deep. TOP! Work

    Thanks for the kind words! Just messing around with some loops and trying to get some sort of sound and imagery with the help of a few lyrics.

Description : inspired by art of Susana Boettner which reminds me of the three kings story of this time of year. three motives in the track vaguely allude to three characters, sometimes in monologue, sometimes dialogue. http://www.susanaboettner.com/losvisitantes/05.jpg

Genre is always tricky and I don't know genres very well so I usually go with weird. But I think I write in an orchestral style, albeit I have mostly abandoned traditional orchestral instruments.

The track is loosely cinematic, insofar as it describes a journey, with mystery, adventure, celebration along the way.

Description : A song I wrote over a guitar track that I found on YouTube. Link to the original track can be found below.

Have been attempting to write 2-3 songs over the past couple of months with little success, when this one just appeared out of nowhere.

It's a bit odd I guess (which is why I tagged it as weird) but I enjoyed creating and listening back to it, so here it is.

Thank you!
