Cool intro into the beat, it clarifies to some mystical, almost spiritual beat. I've got to say, you can transition with the best of them, some neat and interesting musical vignettes all sewn together quite exquisitely.

Happy holidays pal!

thanks, Wayne! this was a quest, i’m afraid i leaned on john carpenter for that last transition, straight out of the halloween playbook!

Hi Michael.
Well put together again.
I really like that part after 0:58.
and that part at 1:36 also very beautiful and subtle.
And then all hell breaks loose and then comes the scary part.
Equipped with absolutely everything.
xstokes replied 3rd Dec 2023 - 7 months ago
well this illustrates my mood swings, i guess! i was furious but working it out, you know?
haha, wouldn’t it be something to be equipped with everything? that’s too much for me!

Aptly titled and described. Beautiful with some great seamless transitions. Did you ever see the movie Touching the Void? Worth a watch, though the book is better.
xstokes replied 3rd Dec 2023 - 7 months ago
hey there Chris! i saw the movie in the hazy vhs years, some images remain and i always coveted the title. glad you brought that up, i’ll watch for the book in my used shops.
BaoBou was a catalyst in getting to the mix you heard, he had me reimagining the first half with his gtr added, it learned me something i hope! cheers, brother!

Once again a great journey with sound through space! It always amazes me how you can trigger this feeling of psychedelic sensitivity in me. The song has tension! You're literally waiting for something to grab you. A kind of auditory threat that continues even after the female vocal and the final chord. Big sound theatre!

Kind regards and have a nice weekend Manuela
xstokes replied 2nd Dec 2023 - 7 months ago
you are such a fine listener, Manuela, your psychic/psychedelic sensitivity is truly appreciated! i hope your weekend brings the right mix of excitement and chill!

Better and better. I love that you inspired me and I inspired you - in very different ways but still creative.
Sent you a link, let me know if you want the stems!
BaoBou 29th Nov 2023 19:56 - 7 months ago
Very exciting track - and you inspired me. I'm sure you won't recognise it when (if) I post it later, but I jammed a bit to the start of your track and I'll have to record that.
The second half with the eerie female vocal is very good!!
xstokes replied 29th Nov 2023 - 7 months ago
hey man if you would allow me to incorporate that into the track that would be so cool!

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
