    Hey! This is great, the vibe is very cool. This should be in the movie Boogie Nights, lol!!

    Great tempo to walk to with some decent headphones so you can hear the bass loud. Vox work perfectly. What can I say that hasn't already been said, sweet track man!

    this is so fresh Chris got a hip hop bounce in there with that jazz, the title is cool AF. another great vocal mate, it appealled to me and my situation over the last year or so with work colleagues, all gutless pricks, no more fuck with me now, i threatened them, and walked out. not the cleverest thing, but i dont do clever, just reality.
    thats why ive been quiet of late, lost my mojo a bit, not been in the mood even though i got my upgrade, i aint done nothing.
    but ive done a bit of listening today and this and others have perked me up in the 30 degree uk sun, yep its red hot. and to top it, the start of my cities dance and street art festival, last year was great.
    cool listen for me for sure, there is daring in it just like me

Then one day..boom, something emerges out of nothing.

    This song is a mix of so many things that I would have never thought worked together. Not only did you make it work but you did it in the greatest way possible, smooth like a criminal. It's like rock, jazz, and a little sprinkle of hip hop all bundled into one. Great work here!

    This is like Stereo MCs got ahold of a Tom Waits tune, turned it into a funkcicle and had Ray Manzarek lick it.

    Cool, man. I dig it.

    Hi, thanks man. The keys were actually Addictive Keys electric piano but played with lots of modulation wheel. I go turned onto Can about 35 years ago and they've been a constant musical companion ever since. Tago Mago, Ege Bamyasi and Future Days probably my favourites. I have to say I'm still intrigued by your computer generated tracks, I think that's fascinating. Just listened to this this morning, I think I'm going to try it out writing lyrics!

    This song gives me distinct Tom Waits vibes. The sparse texture, the sultry, dark vocals and the poetic but visceral lyrics. Great stuff sir!

    Reply by Zootman

    Thank you very much, I could imagine the Tom Waits using a similar sort of beat (sixteen shells from a 30-06 maybe), but it would be full of him banging tin lids etc! Thanks for the listen and comment.

Description : OK, I finally managed to find a song name, so here it is. But the genre is still open. WTF is it? World? Trip? Trance? Rock? psychedelic? .

I started this song with the wahwah background track, I think I wanted to go in the triphop direction but when I played with it and tried out things I added some Tabla sounds from the available sound library of the cubase software to it, just to get a feel for it. It sounded right somehow, and so it developed from there. As before, we did the work on wikiloops band section: bhunt1 (Brian) on Bass added his track, and rp3drums (Raymond) on drums (one straight drum track, and one para-diddle track). I then added several more guitar tracks.

So I would be happy to listen to your comments and advice, and if I get a good suggestion for name and genre I will change it. Cheers, TG :D

Description : I may have mentioned to a few people that I had recorded an EP to cassette tape in November. The thirty minute, seven track tape was recorded on 14th and 15th November (during that excellent full moon). My process, this time, involved choosing a group of instruments from my main studio, and then interfacing them in a way that allowed me to perform a spontaneous track live. There was no planning, and each track was only given attention until the previous was lain on tape. All in all, it was a very rewarding experience to create "on a whim" like this. No DAW was used to create the sounds, or to perform/arrange them. All instruments were mixed in real time, and the output was forever dedicated to the magnetic medium. All of these songs were instrumental, and not traditional in their performance. This is a digital capture of two songs from the EP - "Agonist Moon" and "Faultline" - They are the last track of Side A and the first track of Side B. If you are not familiar with those terms... they indicate the direct physical and psychological experience of interacting with recorded media in order to play it in it's entirety. "Agonist Moon" was described by my wife as an "Icaro," which is a tribal shamans healing song in certain cultures. "Faultline" is more of a peak minimal technological shift into the rest of the EP. UPDATE - The entire Agonist Moon EP digital re-master is now available here... https://spivkurl.bandcamp.com/album/agonist-moon-ep

Description : UPDATE 3/31/2016 - Did some work on the mix and master thanks to the advice of Crucethus and promenade2239. I knew something needed work, and it turned out I need some shifting in the time-space continuum. Thanks to everyone who commented so far!


Original DESC - Yes, I admit it... I fall down. Different circumstances and results each time, but it does happen. Got some inspiration in the last week or two, and left behind some other responsibilities for a while to make this track. Did a considerable amount of multisampling of a Realistic C1000 to add to the song. This is the first song I've finished which uses my modified Korg Monotribe. Also contains Microkorg (on glitch percussion and vocoder use), Yamaha ys-200, Zoom RT-123, and my modular synth doing circuit bent voice synth duties. Psychedelic, dark cold wave. EDIT: Now that I think about it, there were no virtual synths involved in this composition, but only virtual samplers and effects. Everything else was MIDI and hardware sound source. Thank you for listening! Please leave a comment and I will return the favor!

Description : I walked for miles, and what seemed like millennia in order to find the inspiration for this song, and subsequently the album which it helped finalize. It is an essential title track for me, even if it is encoded.

Here is the artwork in question.

A twenty-two month experiment,

Combining infinite expansion with absorpsion and inhibition.

A two thousand mile walk to the place I call home.

A home to be myself and room to roam.

A bone, and a stone, all alone and unknown,

But aglow, and beloved,

Here the sun and snow shown.

The album is available here, for the time being....

Description : I tried to make a 'doom cello' track but failed as the chillout vibes really took over but there is still some heaviness as well as a few minutes of dance music in the final sections. It's very moody and atmospheric and dominated by strings and drums. 120BPM but most of it is half that tempo. Lots of my electric cello playing though there are also sample-based string parts, especially the foreboding, drone bass - the only bass instrument in the track. Other pad sounds add some mystical, spacey beauty while an arpeggiated VST guitar instrument adds a progressive band feel in the first half. Drums are two programmed kits and mostly one hard rock/metal kit. Also one drum loop plus two music loops towards the end. I very rarely use music loops but they seem to work here. Let me know what you think of this progressive epic. Sorry it's so long but hopefully it justifies its length. It's definitely far out and difficult to place in any particular, obvious genre.

Description : One of several live in studio tracks which I recorded in recent weeks. This one incorporated my DIY modular synth and a modified Yamaha DD-20 as the only instruments. The DD-20 was, in part, triggered at audio rates, enabled by the the input modifications. Not quite the usual spivkurl track which you may be accustomed to. I'm putting this in psychedelic, though it could easily fit into ambient, glitch or cinematic genres.

Description : Descent into the archaic and cursed meanders of Nameless City. Inspired by the homonymous story by HPL. Comment freely, friends.

Description : The results of six hours in a psychotropic environment which was novel to my experience. Only fixed some minor mistakes and mastered the song after I left the environment (or after it left me). It tugs at passion as a dog biting a dress. Resentment and discontent are its language. Slice of life tragic comedy, with a psychedelic edge.

Description : Far out, cello-based, deep grooving, progressive, powerful and sometimes aggressive sci fi epic with lots of electronic elements and some dubstep craziness towards the end. Electric cello, slow attack guitar, resonator guitar, a little bit of bass guitar, 5 synths, lots of effects and drum loops and a few programmed drum kits. It all began with the first couple of cello riffs (one pizzicato bassline, one bowed main riff) and the hip hop beats and then grew and grew as I added more synths and drums and worked in some old, leftover guitar parts. It's very detailed and complex and the mix and sculpting of the sounds are as important as the composition. Have a good listen then come back and let me know what you thought of this twisting, turning journey into outer space. Feel free to criticise and/or tell me your favourite parts...

Tags : | Psychedelic | 14.24 MB | Cubase

Description : Far out epic featuring sine waves, programmed violin parts, played electric cello, various synths, drum loops and programmed acoustic drums. Mystical and a bit Eastern. A three min drumless intro and then some fat grooves and darker sounds. Not as good as I was hoping it would be. Interesting comments appreciated...
