    Nice intro! I like spoken word.
    Great sax! This guy at first sounded a little like Al Pacino. So this guy's a philosopher? Great melody the synth acidty sound is brilliant

    Hey CC - Kurt Vonnegut was an american writer maybe best known for his fiction writing - he was an interesting guy and died about 15 years ago now - there's a newish documentary film called unstuck in time about his life and work - that was what made me revisit him and appropriate a few lines. Thanks for listening and the warm feedback

    What's up Ian, no matter how long I'm away I know where to get my avant-garde music fix. I think the loose but tight feel of this track is very satisfying. The informative spoken word is icing on the cake.

    Great track. Faved..

    I was born in Indiana. Vonnegut is required reading lol. Really though, nice choice. I'm a fan of your song construction and especially the mood of this one.

    Go check out the new(ish)documentary film on Kurt - 'unstuck in time' - that was why he was in my mind - it was decades ago I read slaughter house five and breakfast of champions and Im not sure what else. He is an interesing character I enjoyed the film : )

    In response to BOD's comment, I completely agree with you on your approach. My music theory prof used to say learn the rules, then break them all you want. As long you can explain why you did it and it makes musical sense. This makes musical sense, good work.

    I like the electricity sound, breaks the norms. You might consider rendering some of the MIDI to wavs. You can then stretch to twice or 4X the time (or the reverse) to get interesting sonic information (same with pitch transposition and stretching settings), or use them as an optional or additional layer with or without additional FX (or as a vocoding source, or as a sidechain information source).

    Sometime I will write MIDI, render it as a wav, and then use another MIDI content as reference points to place chops or sweeteners, using the rendered wav.

    Any combination of these kinds of tricks will exploit a larger palette without much effort or an increase in written content. In other words, efficient "tricks" for avant garde sounds.

    You can also render the entire song, so that you have a choppable master handy if you want global FX for a small part (like tailored reverb during a pause), without having to wire a bunch of busses into a premaster channel.

    Food for thought, faved, keep it up.

    Thanks Bod - I do like to try to find the boundary line and test it a little in the process of learning the software and crafting a track. I'm with you around bouncing the tracks to mostly bounce to audio and do + also double track usually more than half of my tracks, then treat them differently and pan them differently AND as I use mpc as daw I often use the half speed function - even doubled up which does as you suggest provide a quick pathway to alternative sounds that will fit with the original. I also like to add harmoniser, delay and or other effects, often on the last beat, hit or note of a phrase and blend them in a more or less subtle way. Thanks so much for your feedback to me and others I have found that your comments and ideas have been really helpful in my learning and experiments. In my other life my own work in therapy is based on building on what is already present and working and to try to pay attention to all of the elements that make up 'what works' and I think that attitude is helpful in tune craft too - whether it's for someone at your level of expertise or a relative novice like myself hey : ) Thanks Again

    Oh so that's what Vonnegut sounds like! Cool. Not quite I expected. The e-piano and sax sounds are perfect for this track, gives it a very jazzy, smokey, atmosphere. I actually disagree with V, I don't think the bass synth is too much. Though panning it around might be a cool effect. The combination of that and the instrument voices create the effect which makes the song unique.

    Reply by pseudoble

    Hey Killick - thanks for the warm feedback - the electric piano is from Air - velvet - one of their presets then double tracked each track treated differently and panned left and right. The Vst sax is from decent sampler and there's lots of guitar in there too (with multitracked Neural DSP plugins on the guitars giving some lovely different sounds). The bass synth is from a modular synth present with some percs, there is another bass line using outlooks substance bass engine (as well as outlooks exhale) and then there is other percussion from Akai mpc drums ...

    hey Ian, i really like this the spoken vocal is great the music and mix are delightful, i like the distorted bass, it adds texture to the melodic charm, but like ValveDriver its distracting playing right through i would also chop it up, 2-3 smaller sections maybe run a fade in and a fade out on the sample or an envelope to dampen it so its not in your face so much. but i love your creativity and always pushing the boundaries and delivering original material, you are becoming the DON on spoken too mate, just that tweak for me, but again personal choice only dictating my judgement, keep being you mate

    Reply by pseudoble

    Thanks for the warm feedback mate - see reply to V for the work around required for the distorted bass sound ; )

    I love the sax and the Rhodes in this! They definitely create a chilled atmosphere. Overall, it almost has a bit of an Angelo Badalamenti vibe.
    I like it. I think, though, that the distorted bass synth in the background being played through the entire thing is a little distracting. It makes it difficult to hear the cymbals and tambourine. I would chop it up and place it in more strategic areas in the spaces between, ya know? Or, if not that, then bring it down in the mix and pan it back and forth. But, that's just my opinion. Take it for what it's worth. Either way, it's a piece to be proud of.

    Take care.

    Reply by pseudoble

    Hey - thanks for that - already played around with that sound a bit and wasnt happy with the result but I do agree. Part of the issue is that the track was built around it and its a modular synth that is constructed as a multi - so it has bass and perc's and a lot of the background rhythm goes when I cut it up - so I'd need to reconstruct that (pain in the arse) never mind hey - move on to the next experiment : )

Description : I think of this as "melodic talking" rather than "spoken word" or "rap", but I always struggle with what to label my stuff. The music is drum and voice, very basic. Mixed using Audacity (not in the list).
Look back to your forebears, look ahead to your children and their children, and that - that chain of generations - is your river - of life, of DNA, of blood. It's a potent metaphor for me and I keep trying to capture it in a song. What do you think of this one?
