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.

theHumps replied 18th Sep 2021 - 2 years ago
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 : )

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!

He quedado impresionado amigo Wayne por las sensaciones tan devastadoras conseguidas con tu pista, una obra de arte que consigue hacer que vivas ese apocalipsis en tu piel, tengo la mejor película en mi cabeza, has conseguido que visualice cada detalle con claridad cinematográfica. Gracias por la descarga y las letras de la canción. Google me la traduce al español lo que me permite vivirlo más intensamente. Buen día compañero. salud y paz.

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 : 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!

Description : Many of strangeness here ....
A link between two musical worlds quite different but united in this message of harmony.
"Silverpaw" (former Looperman) had in the depths of one of its hard drives, this arrangement that I made the past year: https://www.looperman.com/tracks/detail/120846
He decided to bring this theme, with a text and this voice ....
Very surreal but I really enjoyed ....

I hope it will be the same for you.

Thank you for listening.

Description : Hey guys! Well, this is the first time I upload a song with my voice. I have to confess that this is not a style I usually sing. And, as an extra point, this is my first song in english. My native language is spanish, my english is not perfect, so sorry for mistakes (grammar, pronunciation, etc). Well, about lyrics, I explain the story on description of the instrumental version. If you want to read the story or hear the instrumental track, go here [ https://www.looperman.com/tracks/detail/146653 ]. This song was made on Magix Music Maker 2013 Premium and Adobe Audition 3.0.

Description : Again not sure of genre but it is kinda weird. Very much an experiment and Im not sure if it works but someone will let me know no doubt. If you can cope at all probably better with headphones. Pad sound is guitar treated with reverbs, crazy drums constructed from Akai kits and free jazz SFZ kit, sax samples and minimal synth line from arturia minifreak

Description : I found an old recording of me playing guitar on 8-track and decided to use it in a new track. All parts have been recorded using analogue equipment. I've then slowed down, sped up or reversed as I recorded them digitally. Then came the difficult part, attempting to piece it all together in ableton without everything being too out of time (there's no way to make it perfect).
Once I'd EQ'd out some of the loudest hiss, I started applying effects and eventually mastering it all.
What you get as a final product is a simple song executed in a very weird way. I'm quite happy with the disorienting effect. I hope you like it too :)
