As a Chinese, this is considered cool enough, which is in accord with my imagination toward life. Scientific and interesting.

Cool enough just got adopted by this mechanism. Appreciate you, man!

Hi Michael,
I think you know Star Wars. There is a catcher beam, this is the beginning of your track (maybe also the ballons). And then the ride begins. Thrue a tunnel full of explainations. And at the end, nothing but "hot air".
Great trip as usal. The sound quality is, der Hammer (the hammer).

Matthias, hello! When i was 15 in 77 and first hearing the new music of the clash, the pistols, etc there were 2 things i was against: heavt netal and disco. Haha only because teen culture was saturated with them at the time. So because i could not entirely ignore them they became guilty pleasures and it has been like another childhood to indulge in them now i am ib my 60s! Yesterday i bought a cd of hendrix at woodstock — gonna hear that in a bit and cheer. Hope you are really good, mate its so good to see you!

The description sums it up perfectly! Maybe it's really just a movie! You feel like you're in a parallel world. You are in a completely different world. An oppressive world full of secrets and dangers. Actually, one wishes that everything was just a film, a dream from which one simply wakes up and the feeling of security has one back. Very well done, great musical story! Mix and Master extraordinarily good! Greetings Manuela

waka waka, i really like the title and i wished that winnie the poh just sending ballons not a honey pot. your intro feels like a journey into someones mind. it describes when i get into my psych mode and thoughts burst out like a sun eruption and i lose controll and can just watch things happen. the mix is awsome i dont know what yu doing with all thesee frequencies but they never compete with each other. this is a great track and im just screaming to it. great electricty feeling.

HitaBLu making sounds has always been my center my desire and consolation. And i hear that in so many others musics and its bliss when we recognize one another out on the astrall planes. Peace you big banana!

Original lovely glitchy warm analogue synthetic start evolving into a real punk prog rock banger before falling like a popped balloon into the psychedelic ocean - I love it. I hope I can make a track this good someday : )

Ian, seriously bud, you are one i draw inspiration from for treatments and layering sounds and all that! I lucky to have you out there, mate!

nice inspiration on this track, i love the guitars! great job!
xstokes replied 2nd Mar 2023 - 1 year ago
Hi Michael! I’ve been featuring lots more gtr in the stuff i’m working on and having a ball with it. The guitar is really my true love. I’m gonna get my calluses back one of these days! Cover your ears, buddy!
BaoBou 22nd Feb 2023 00:10 - 1 year ago
That's a fascinating track man. The intro is long, very long, but I get the track needs it and then when you get to 2:00 the release is great, and then you get into the guitar solos.
And the outro is just as weird. Really, really good track. Kudos.

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 : Psychedelic, Eastern, dark dance/jazz/fusion based around my cello playing plus minimal other instrumentation. Two sections of electric guitar, one of Fender Rhodes, one synth pad, some swirling female vocal samples and one sub synth bass. Apart from multiple drum loops and programmed acoustic drumkits, everything else is cello, including most of the weird sounds.

Description : Everyone seems to be using acapella recently. I ran across some "spoken word" that was inspiring so... That's what this is. I don't know if it would still be considered "acapella". most of the drums are Laurentwirz my fav drummer on LM
