Description : A unique opportunity arose for me last weekend to meet one of my all time saxophone hero's. I had arranged for all of my pupils on woodwind to have master classes with Snake Davis. Now some of you might know him, but I can imagine the majority of you are saying WHO! Well this guy plays with the cream, Paul McCartney, Amy Winehouse,Lisa Stansfield,M People ect.... One of the things which came out of these five sessions was the ability to play solo, no band or instruments, just one saxophone holding a melody/solo with chord changes, and making sure it sounds good. So hey ho I gave it a bash this morning and recorded this first time through, I'm really happy with it and if you all agree, then I will chop it into loops so you can all play as well, cheers Slap...

    Slap,
    I have this playing over and over in my studio as I prepare for a session tonight.
    The sun will be setting over the desert mountains outside Phoenix very soon. I have the doors and windows open and your beautiful sound is floating out across the citrus orchards to the foothills.
    This is all so personal and touching.
    Direct to favs.
    This will be played more than I can tell you.

    Sector7even on Tue 22nd Jan 2008 - 11 years ago

    wow, ive never honestly listened to a sax solo just to listen to one until today. well in my opinion F@*KING EXCELLENT! so smooth with the melody intact throughout. timing perfect with the smoothest transitions. you absolutely have a gift and look forward to using some of those samples your gonna supply. ive never used sax before but after hearing what i just heard, im looking forward to the project. just an idea, what about you and bilbozo doing a colab? that would be something...maybe mrrobots loops/samples and arrangement.
    great job slap!
    ...wow!

Description : Just an acoustic/piano piece I threw together a few nights ago when coming home from university. My brother and I were doing some acoustic music together in my room, just having fun; came out with this; I immediately got on my DAW and recorded it before I forgot how ti went lol. Hoping to get some strings on it soon as well as some vocals from the bro! :P In the meantime, enjoy this instrumental.

Description : This is an acoustic cover of the song "Come As You Are" by David Crowder. I recorded, mixed, and mastered this one in two days! Almost done burned me out haha! Hope you enjoy!

My older brother does the lead vocals and I do everything else, from instrumentation to harmonies. No vocal-editing whatsoever in this one. The guitars were all one-take recordings. Updated the audio - I added tambourine hits in the 2nd and 3rd choruses; just helps make for a more moving song.

Description : Here's a lil' acoustic instrumental I never wrote words to. Used a Guild acoustic guitar mic'd with an AKG C214 and my trusty ol' Yamaha MOX8 for other instruments (excluding shaker - that was real ;). You can find the guitar loops to this song on my profile page. Maybe one of you looperpeeps can come up with something for words on this. Otherwise, enjoy le moosic :3

Description : Working on my acoustic recording quality. What do you guys think? I'll extend this once it's closer to completion.

Description : There were two separate tracks in work, but who knows why I got tired with them and then decided to merge them (or at least what left from them) into one piece hence they originate out of same musical purpose. No worries...no world war was ment here, except my recent personal one...haha...and you don't want to know about it.:) It's not real etude by any means, yet it's quite alot about practicing...practicing...

Description : This is my attempt at the one-hour challenge for LM (finished at 57 min 48 sec). I had to mix/master on the go and this was the result. Some bad chords here and there that I did my best to conceal, one-takes on guitar and piano and used an awesome acapella from a1000times, who wrote the words that Dikaiko sang over. I really like her voice. Anyhoo yea, I like this one a lot so probably gonna come back to this in the near future. Comments welcome.

I got the acapella here: https://www.looperman.com/acapellas/detail/7656/marauder-feat-dikaiko-by-a1000times-132bpm-dance-acapella

Description : I put this under acoustic even though I did use a couple midi tracks. I felt they sounded acoustic enough to put the track in that category. Suppose it could be chill out as well, however you want to label it, do so. I used an Indian flute and an electric guitar sounding plugin with some tremolo added along with acoustic guitar, mandolin and harmonica. Nothing too complicated here and I felt it sounded good enough to upload so enjoy!

Description : Written for Claudio's birthday (my Italian friend) in obvious waltz manner and with slight classical touch this tune appears to me almost painfully simple and minimalistic (and indeed it is)....and yet, Claudio who's very familiar with my music says that this is one of the nicest pieces of music I've ever written even if it wasn't his birthday present....well, who knows if he's right..:)^^

Description : This track contains only free loops from several Looperman artists. Had to thank once again the excellent loops to their owners - i think the result is one of my best tracks ever, plus have a slight spaghetti western like feeling which is cool ... Hope you will like it too. :)

Description : Update: Thanks to the great great help of Orlando51 the track now is in its final state. He made the piano and violins sound really good together withthe guitar. Big question is if this needs vocals or if it is good as it is right now. Please comment your thoughts about it. Thank you Orlando51 for helping me out. You have my sincere gratitude!
