Description : This song sort of built itself based on a couple of the elements in it. The blipping at the start and end made me think of the idea of someone trying to tune in a radio, or maybe sending out a coded message for help. I built it all from VSTI, aside from the rhythm, which came from Breakbeat Paradise. The vocals are deliberately echoey (not sure if I made the right choice with that... I know it makes the lyrics harder to understand). I wanted the feel of someone trapped inside a prison and hearing their voice echo back at them. I suppose you could say I feel close to these lyrics. I spent 13 years in an abusive relationship... by the time I left, I was so wrecked I didn't want to let any man close enough to hurt me again. The recent signing of my divorce papers (and having to spend time around my ex) dug up a lot of memories I'd just rather stay buried... and although I'm in a much happier place now, some stuff doesn't go away so easily. Song writing is amazing therapy... I guess that's part of what got me started in the first place. - Please, if you think I need to change stuff, vocal mix etc, tell me. I'm still experimenting lol. Oh and offer me some ideas as to what genre this falls into cause I'm not totally sure myself?

    what a great way to release pain and as you said, therepy for you....and me

    it wasnt just a song Lisa.

    thanks...in my Favs!

    Heya gizz... I really feel for you. My kids are currently just realizing exactly what and who their dad is.. and it's not a pretty picture. Thankfully my kids have my fiance in their lives too, and he's an amazing person and someone I am proud to have around my children. I'm glad this touched you.

    I definitely like this. Music can be a great way to let go and be free. I love the echo choice. You really caught what you were looking for here!

    Brilliant!

    yeah not really sure most the time WHAT to put stuff under cause I play around with so many aspects of electronic music and I tend to not know which one is dominant lol. Thanks for listening, glad you liked it.. and I knew what you meant ;) hehe

    every one is there own worst critic,lol . the echo in your vocals seem to match the distance that the music portrayed. like you said, as if a radio was being tuned in, and the person listening to it tuned in your song just when they needed it the most, and your song bringing the peace or enlightenment that they absolutely needed at that exact moment. you can't fake pain, and you can't
    fake quality! They both have brought you here.
    Thank You Fiery

    Thanks very much Johnny... I guess the only way I have to let out pain at the moment is in my music so I bet there'll be more. I'm glad you liked this... a lot of me went into it :)

    Music is what you make it, its from your heart, some of these songs cannot be put under a genre because its emotional and personal, it's your music and it's your heart we're hearing, good stuff, how you explained it is how it seemed.

    really good song, the beat and the vocals go hand in hand perfectly. i like the echo too, it makes it sound more emotional. keep up the good work.

    Thanks very much :) I was really hoping the echo would help keep the atmosphere of the song in tune because I love songs that carry that texture in emotion in them. Thanks for listening, I'm glad you liked it. Lisa

    I did get a little distracted by the echo and had to listen to this song twice to get all the words, but I'm not saying that is a bad thing.

    I enjoyed what you're going for here. I'm gunna grab my headphones so I can give this a proper listening. The drumbeat with the simple ambient tracks really help keep attention on the beautifly sung vocals. Good song, great message.

    Yeah I was having a hard time tweaking the echo so it was just enough and I finally got frustrated and left it like this and let others decide if it sucked lol. Thanks for listening, I'm glad that you liked the song... nothing works better than life for inspiration to lyrics :) Lisa

    L - this track is sad and beautiful. There's nothing wrong with your vox, because your inflection emotes nothing but melancholy truth. I am sorry (or happy?) about your split, but you couldn't stay stuck. and dudes who abuse need to be held down and made to feel what it's like from the other side.
    I like your new avatar also btw! and write me.
    peace and music - Trey

    Heya Trey :) You know enough about my story now to know what spurred this song. It's funny really because looking back I could have left so much earlier and I chose the "comfort zone" route. Duh. lol I am a lot happier now but sometimes stuff going on in my life digs up the old pain and I need to let it out. I used to do that with covers but it's just not cutting it anymore. Thanks for listening.. glad you liked this. x Lisa

    I loved the first mix you put up of this track, so when i saw this one i had to have a listen. I must say i think you have done a fantastic job with. the vocals work well. it has a deep emotive feel, and after reading your description it's easy to see why. i think it's beautiful that you are maikng music from the heart and not out just to make money. although i think you probably could. peace and progress...

    I'm glad that you liked this. I couldn't see myself making music just for the sake of a few $$... it takes too much out of me to only be for that purpose, you know? I am planning on putting together a cd once I have enough tracks worthy of it, mainly because I've been asked by a lot of the folks I did the karaoke thing with (and a lot of my friends as well). It will be a small production, I can't afford to go all out... and maybe I'll make some money to put toward my kids, who knows :-) ... but money or no money I'll still make music, it's not a want, it's a need hehe. Thanks for listening and for the nice review.

    great track, great ambience ....
    about the echo: for the effect you wanted to achieve I would have tried a very short but loud echo with just one repetition, the way you did it it sounds as you were in a very large cell .... but: I'm not sure if a short echo would sound good in the song ... just try and listen ...
    anyway, I really like this track very much, most of all the bassline, it delivers a fearful atmosphere which is a very good contrast to your fragile voice - that's fantastic!!!
    and I think that's the point of the story ....

    peace, rei

    Yeah... it took me a LOT of messing around in Adobe (and 2 vocal tracks) to find the right dose of echo... because I wanted it to blend too. I'm glad that the song came across the way you interpreted it, that was my intention (as you have obviously guessed). Thanks for listening, I'm glad you liked it :-)

    The echo on the vocals sounds good, I like it. This song makes me want to drive around and look for someone that pissed me off. Good song, good emotion.

    Can you pretend my ex pissed you off? OOPS did I say that out loud??? :-P I'm glad you liked this... I wasn't sure about the echo, was afraid it deterred from the song more than added (always afraid of my mixing lol) Thanks for the review :-)

Description : Just like the first EP "OGOU", this production focuses on organic elements with drum samples.It contains modern sounds such electronic down-tempo, future bass,and hip-hop, which makes the music sound old and new at the same time. With heavy sampling of African chants and sound generated from other tribes, this is production will bring more flavor and enjoyment--it's like Africa to your Ears.

Description : After a major uphill battle completing this song and turning it into what it is now, I feel some amount of satisfaction. It was like reality wanted me to give up or something. It's done... phew... Have updated this almost completely, from repatching the modular bass, playing some guitar parts, adding electric piano and synth lead, redoing and tuning the DW-6000 synth, of course adding my vocals, and mixing and mastering. It really has become pretty new wave, like much of my stuff does recently. Have added the lyrics as well. I am proud and happy with it, and I hope you all enjoy listening! UPDATE... woohoo just broke 1000 plays on this track here at looperman!
***original description***
Hey finally here with a new track! I'm not sure what to call this other than electronic, due to the high tempo. This is the first song finished using my interface which allows direct MIDI control of my modular synthesizer. The mid frequency bass part is all from that patch. There are tracks designed with my Zoom RT-123 drum machine, the microkorg, and the circuit bent KORG DW-6000. Other than that it is just a kick and snare drum sample, and a a quick vocal snippet. So I guess it's fairly minimal in that respect. Would like to hear the Looperman community's thoughts on this song! Thank you for listening

Description : The answer to Close Encounters is Hymn Of The Pleiades.This is a strictly groove track where the elements of ambient meets electronic funk and Hip Hop. Track was recorded, mixed and mastered using Mixcraft Pro Studio 6 software. Results were achieved by using a FATA Studio 90 MIDI keyboard ran through a E-MU Proteus 2000 sound module, - for the phat funky bass synth. I also used a KORG O5R/W sound module for the retro lead synth parts and ambient sound pads.
I utilized what was essentially a old school Hip Hop drum track, arranged and beefed it up for that extra umh! I greatly appreciate all the positive feedback the track has garnered thus far. Keep listening and by all means, your comments are much welcomed... thanks.

Description : Here's another bass-packed, African-flavored track for you to dance to.

Description : This one has a lot of changes. Pretty unique. Lots of dubstep sounds, glitch and other sounds. I always enjoy listening back to it. Throw on some headphones, crank it up, and experience the awesomeness of this epic electronic composition.

Description : Recently I've been quite into future bass and this my first real try at making it.

Looking forward to some constructive criticism. Hope you enjoy

Update - This is the updated completed version of the song featuring Eshar on the vocals.This is a very experimental track and hopefully you'll be pleasantly surprised by it.

I don't know where else to put this, but I really want to thank the Looperman community for giving my track a chance. It's almost hit 800 plays and it's got so many favorites, it's insane. Thanks to everyone who made this the song it is right now.

Description : Electronic blend. Starts off with a wup wup wup wup bass wob, then a rock beat with a bass line, and synths and samples are weaved in. Glitch sounds invade, and dub step robo voices speak up. A sliced up climax tops off the structure. Thank you, come again.

Description : A demo of one of my current projects. The chorus vocal sounds like "Aaaaraashe" to me. The song is in C# minor with a nod to C# pythagorean on the chorus. The beat on the verse was inspired by the Peter Gabriel song Intruder.
