on You have to fly away by joecramer
It does give emotions, a mix of them, anxiety, fear? Nice track, I can imagine it as a soundtrack of some dark drama series, nice!

Ha - rock on with Christmas - this is great - so much more engaging than jingle bells - love the attitude as much as the fast repetitive guitar riff too

Is that Santa or Beelzebub with the deep backing vox - he's welcome at my place either way : )

Fun and joy are always good things.
Celebrating a proper party because “the LORD” was born is probably the least you have to do. .....And happy people who sing to wild music and have fun can also be punks :)

And as for the guy who sang so darkly - I think it was "the thinking zombie". I don't know if you've gotten to know the forum yet. But there was a time when we really had a lot of fun with it and there was still something of a community here. Back then there was a Halloween challenge and in it (for me) “the thinking zombie” appeared for the first time. Just as smart as a human, just a zombie. There he played a live concert in a radio play with a protest song against stupid barbaric people...... And the guy in this song here just sounds exactly like "the thinking zombie"

All the best and a great x-mas to you and yours
stay tuned

Hallo Joe, wow! Dieser Song hat auch nach 25Jahren nichts an drive und spirit verloren. Ich glaube du hast einen Song geschaffen, der absolut zeitlos ist. Den Eindruck habe ich nur sehr selten von einem Lied. Aber bei deinem hier trifft es absolut zu! Toller Song, toller Spass, den ich vom Anfang bis zum letzten Ton sehr genossen habe.

Liebe Gruesse und eine schoene lustige aber auch besinnliche Adventszeit

Hallo Manuela,
danke danke für deinen wirklich netten Kommentar.
Und wie man es auch drehen und wenden kann, eigentlich ist Weihnachten wirklich der freudigste Tag im Jahr eines Christen. Ich mein, Hey der Herr wurde geboren. Alles wird besser. Alles wird gut. So startet die Geschichte doch. Also passt eine gewisse grundlegende Partystimmung doch hervorragend.
So fühle ich mich fast jedes mal wenn ich, seit 25 Jahren, mir zu Weihnachten diesen Song wieder und wieder gebe. Er bringt mich wirklich, ernsthaft, in die Stimmung, der meiner Meinung nach sich jeder befinden sollte an diesem wunderprächtigem tollem Tag.
Hey man, der HERR wurde geboren :)

Wenn DAS kein Grund zum feiern ist, was dann?

Alles gute und FROHES Fest
stay tuned

Love the rising synth at the start and throughout the song very relaxing and deep but for some cc I'd say add a few crashes or ride cymbal

Unbelievable what you have conjured up there.... really a journey. Obviously you know about traveling without moving. I hear a further development of the Berlin School, among other things... Big compliments, Joe!

joecramer replied 12th May 2023 - 1 year ago
Thank you very much for this great compliment.
But actually I can't adopt it at all. I actually lived in Berlin for 2 years and at that time even made electronic music with some "real" Berlin guys, but we really had absolutely nothing to do with any "wiered" old "bores" :)
Back then we were about 19-20 years young and that's now 35 years ago. Musically we moved more in the direction of electronic post-punk, EBM, techno and wave and were miles away from established stuff) wonderful times :)
And now I've been living in Hamburg for almost 25 years. But I don't have any "connections" with the Hamburg school either....
I take it all on myself.
I learned a bit of the recorder at school, with a bit of sheet music and so on, then had a few guitar lessons and briefly tried to learn the clarinet and accordion. But I mostly failed on both :)
So actually no serious musical training or any theoretical plan.
I do it all (creating, composing, playing, importing, writing, singing, mixing and doing, completely on my own and only according to "my feeling"
If there is one school that I follow or that I expand, it is that of my life :) the - Joe Cramer school of one's own path -
Thanks again for your kind and appreciative words.
I was really happy about it, precisely because it was penned by someone who has a much more "serious" idea about music than I do.

stay tuned Micky

Thanks for the recent comment.
Also for listening again, of course.
Personally, I always find it very nice when someone takes the time to listen to a song of mine more than once. Because for that, the person has to like it.
But as much as I like that, you should still listen to one or the other piece of mine.
I'm in the process of redesigning my home page. At the moment you can access everything that I have uploaded to youtube (that's a lot of songs). The rest (and that's not a little either) is still flying around at ReverbNation and of course there are also a few songs here at looperman. As soon as I'm done with my site, you can listen to everything there and mostly also download it .... joe-cramer.de

Hey, Joe. Really enjoyed listening to this new track from you. Followed all the required safety instructions!

Very evocative and definitely conveyed a mix of emotions, mostly calming, but with an undercurrent of wistfulness I think. Not sure that it was cinematic. Not exactly chill either. Kind of unique actually! :)

Sorry to hear that you have been unwell. Music is a great therapy so please try to make more for us, and for you.

Hello Eric.
Nice to hear that you liked it and that you rate it as unique. Every artist likes to hear that. Many thanks for that and for the time and everything.
Whether it's actually cinematic or chill or something else, who knows? Usually I just take electro and I'm out of the loop. But then there is usually whining right away :)

When I made this song, I went through a period of emotions like I've never had in my life. And there was a bit of everything. Mountains and valleys full of emotions, so to speak. So it doesn't surprise me that this song just drips with it. And since everyone feels differently, there should be something for everyone.

I will definitely keep making music. I can't help it :)
And surely she will help me, because it has always been like this. But unfortunately music will not heal me. But that's perfectly fine.

So you won't have to wait too long to hear something new.

stay tuned

Hey Joe, this song is a masterpiece! It is epic, expressive and musically convincing. I can't know But somehow I have the feeling as if you have processed your feelings and integrated them authentically into this wonderful sound. You have installed so many suitable musical adons, but not exaggerated. There is no dominance of a single instrument to be heard here. Everything interacts like the cogs in a gearbox. Beautiful song, well done, mixed and mastered. I wish you all the best, love and strength for your future. Manuela

Thank you very much for this really wonderful friendly comment.What should/can I say about that now?
I can't think of anything besides thank you :)
Of course I like to read comments that tell me that they liked it and so but your comment made me (almost) blush.

I'm happy for you that you liked my song so much. Because that's why I wrote it. Hopefully I can keep the level at this high level.
I will of course try

So thank you again for these constructive words, for the time you have invested and the effort you have made.

I hope everything is going to your satisfaction for you.

Thanks for sharing Joe.
I understand you very well.
I barely survived cancer a few years ago. I had no problem going public with it until I saw that a lot of people couldn't handle it and didn't know how to react so they kept quiet about it.
That actually hurt a lot more.
I also understand your rollercoaster of emotions and fear very well.
Once again I wish you a lot of strength but try to enjoy everything that matters to you.
In addition, you are also entitled to the days when you feel bad.
You don't always have to seem like the strong person to your environment...it's about you.

True words Rita
But at the end of the day, I'm also a father and husband and of course I don't want to put anyone down on my loved ones.
At the moment everything is going well and the results are very positive as far as it goes.

What really annoys me is that I had just started tearing my studio apart to build a nice new one. And now I'm so exhausted and battered that it will take months :) But at least I always have something to do and can distract myself

It is important that YOU stay healthy Rita.
In this sense

Hey Joe.
Thanks for your nice replay.
I dont have Analog Synths 2 but i have some Roland synths.
they are also cool.
Unfortunately, my daw can't handle the Roland synths because it's too full. With a lot of crackling and delay, I try sometimes to make a beat with it by luck. Then I have first to throw it out of my daw to hear if he succeeded lol.
I did indeed read something about your health in the discription.
I hope it's not too bad or it will get better.
I don't want to go into that too much because of your privacy, but I wish you a lot of strength.

Hello Rita
I know. I know that all too well. Jerky and twitch and freeze and cancel and and and. Frustration quickly sets in. Somehow at least all DAWs I use or have used seem to have the same problems. And meanwhile I have a well-equipped PC with a lot of power and all sorts of great things, but these problems keep popping up every now and then :)
You just have to say - close your eyes and through.

When it comes to my health, I've changed my attitude. At first I didn't even want to think about it. Then I just wanted to keep it in the family. I then extended this to my circle of friends. And now I think - oh fuck it, tell everyone else and show them where you really stand and how you really are and how you deal with it. But not everyone is seriously able to deal with it properly. If you speak to me now I just try to explain how i feel and deal with it. I usually feel better afterwards and the others worse......
And to keep it short - I'm playing for time.
With a bit of luck it will be 10 or more years, with bad luck it will be much much less. But I'm still in the game.

I hope I haven't spoiled your day with my openness. Just always remember that I've learned, sometimes better sometimes worse, to deal with it. Cause i know now how great and good some people around me really are. Und das macht mich dankbar.

stay tuned

First off, sorry to hear about your health. I noticed you hadn't been here in some time but so many regular visitors have left here in the past few years. Hope you are recovering and feeling better. Get well!!

Cool track, worth the listen. Deep, moody, a sense of adventure, hope and much more built into this idea. Hope there's more coming and that you're up to it!

Take care Joe!

Hello Wayne
I hardly like to say it, but getting well will always remain just a dream. But there is legitimate hope that I can still play for time for some time.

Right now it is of course all the nicer to receive positive encouragement for what is important to you. And music is and will always be a really important part of me. I don't intend to stop just because I've fallen into a deep dark hole for an extended period of time.

Since this song was something like a liberation, some new songs should see the light of the looperverse soon. Some just waiting for their completion.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the kind words you wrote and the time you took. It really mean a lot to me

Got the headphones on (as always) and sitting comfortably ready to dive into the Looperman track archive

I wanted to start at the top today so this is a good vibe to get into it.

As a producer who's not expierenced with this kinda stuff it's interests me how you go about putting something like this together

Feels very native/tribe building into a spacey retro vibe

X-Files or something similar

Hello LankFrampard
Thank you very much for your attention, your time and your comment. (Good to know that you have complied with all safety-related things :) )

As for your question, to be honest I can't really answer that for you. It went like it always did for me.
Fiddle around a bit with sounds.
Experiment and tinker and tinker.
Discarding and replacing things and suddenly realizing that you are actually somehow on a path.
Then change and adapt everything again in such a way that this path develops into a path towards a goal.
And done :)
In the end I had the beat ready and the guitar provided the chords.
Then I created 3-4 little melodies.
I doubled it and gave it different sounds and stuff like that.
Well, and then the individual tracks are distributed and adjusted and processed with FX and stuff.
Just like you do it. It doesn't matter what direction or genre you're heading into. ......

For me it was just that I found myself at the absolute low point of my life.
And the sounds and everything calmed me down and took some of my sadness away.
So much so that afterwards I got the feeling that everything is exactly as it should be (in the song).
I had and have the feeling that it is a "beautiful" song and that I should others give the oportunity to feel the same.
So I came back here after a long time and uploaded it.

It probably all makes very little sense, at least in relation to your question. But I can't explain it any better.

stay tuned

Hello Rita
A little bit of fun is always good.
So I tried to write something funny in the description. Mainly because my personal condition is anything but funny ......

The creation of the many sounds was of course very time-consuming. At least for me :) It felt like it took forever until I was reasonably happy with it. So it's really nice to hear that you liked the result so much.

Just this sound like a woman's voice fascinated me too. Unfortunately, the synth I used for this is only available for "Magix Music Maker". But maybe you have this DAW :) then you will find it there in "Analog Synths 2" in "Voices" - "Real Voice"

We are all learning our whole lives and trying to get better. And of course I'm pleased that I seem to have gotten a little better at mastering over the years.

It's really nice to read that I didn't bore you.
So, heartfelt thanks to you for taking the time to listen to the song and then writing such a nice comment.

As I have already written, I really put a lot of effort into this and tried for a long time to create something, (well lets say), good. And I was very happy that after such a long time I was actually able to finish it.

That's why I would like to thank you and everyone else again for giving me so much (life)energy, just by listening and writing a comment.

Lovely track Joe - emotionally evocative, tender and triumphant more than melancholic. The legato synth sounds remind me a little of a Theremin. Sound production is top class

Hello
Thank you very much for your well-chosen words.
The sound of the synth somehow had a touch of the past for me. And that could very well be because the sound sounds or feels like an old theremin.
It's nice to know that there are people out there who find what I'm doing audible and in some way enjoyable.

So thank you again for the time you invested in listening and writing.
