and now I want to kill myself :(
don't try this at home kids
what kind of thing is it?
Good work anyway...
it's a kind of choral, tribal psychedelic thing
it's taken 2 weeks to do and I just don't have the time or energy to make it better so it's going to stay as it is
didn't get to put a guitar part on
but it's got drums, synth bass, sub bits, piano, rhodes, strings and loads and loads and loads of voice
you should check out some Shackleton he is like that, very dark and very deep.
it's not very dark this track, kind of I guess - more spooky
an epic creative session realy takes it out of ya doesn't it.
and I've done practically nothing else other than this track for the last 2 weeks
I feel exhausted
on deck with my step bro and that destroyed us both hehe.
I might have time to listen to it now
I'm still suprised anyone has DLed it. I have had well over 120 DLs last time I looked some weeks back. Someone mentioned it had had 28 playes on Last FM as well hahah.
The new one is ging to be awsome as well the tunes I'm selecting are top notch...
One day I will get round to making my own tunes, but my laptop is getin old and can bearly handle a mix or two, letalone recording and making music.
the "dubstep" one, right? very nice, look forward to the new one!
it's pretty dark
I listened to it yesterday evening while it was raining pretty hard
it took me to a strange place
or is who a she?
we don't record our songs, only go on about it to impress people.
everyone is in a band these days...
oh I geddit
you feel so fucking inadequate at your own pointless existence that you have to jump up and down if someone within earshot starts having a conversation about something semi useful they've done today
What you've done is going to prove useful to nobody. Don't worry yersel.
won't prove useful to anyone, so everyone's a loser, right?
sampled the little bits of metal you get off a glass bottle of irn-bru's lid
this time last night i was mashing as many Beck songs into Loser as I could (well, i think i managed 6 without making it sound shit)
I was making an announcement
I was going to post on the social board but it seems to be the troll board these days
and I didn't want to post it on the music board
didn't realise that the announcements board thread titles come up on the right-------------->
i was feeling surprisingly vindictive 15 minutes ago.
18 minutes is long so you should be proud :)
Fuck Up did it
NOFX did it.
Do a 19 minute track instead.
Who thinks that only tracks that are at least 12:50 count as music. I also know a girl who thinks all songs should be less than two minutes long.
I think it's impressive, I've spent two weeks on a 5 minute track before, and it didn't really turn out as well as initially hoped for. What kind of software/instruments did you use?
I'm more interested in this than in almost all the shite that appears on the social board during office hours.
Can you not leave it for a couple of weeks and then come back to it fresh?
Also, can we have a listen?
it's going to be used tomorrow for a fashion show - which is why I didn't have time to make it better
but to answer both you and wewerewerewolvesonce
I did it with ableton live
it has programmed drums (EZ drummer), percussion (kontakt2), synth bass (rob papen albino3), piano, strings (native instruments), a sparkly synth bit (nrg-a), and tons and tons of layered vocals
on top of that in one section there is a sample from a 1967 radio france recording of traditional music from Burundi - some drums and women chanting
It starts out like Laurie Anderson's Oh superman and finishes a bit like I Am The Walrus but goes from 4/4 into 3/4 in the tribal territory in the middle
and here it is for a listen if you fancy
some of the vocals might sound a little dry but that's because the room where the show is taking place has nearly a 2 second reverb when it's empty so I had to account for that
I think I'm gonna be ready for the mental hospital about this time tomorrow
That room looks amazing.
I can't get onto zshare because of the office firewall banning storage sites, but I like the sound of the track from your description. I'm sure everything'll go well at the show - hope so, anyway.
I hope so too
I'll get to see lots of tits tomorrow too which is always a bonus
I've never seen naked breasts in the grand lodge of the swedish freemasons before - should be a trip
I have 10 minutes before having to run out again and get pissed
a fair few of you seem to have clicked on the zshare link
anyone got anything nice to say?
but did this go down well today? or is it laters?
I think it went down remarkably well but the models fucked up the ending
there'll be film of it on the internets in the next day or two
I feel so conflicted
ah well I'm sure people enjoyed it very much, I will look out for the vid. I bet it looked brilliant in that place and models.
but there's some pictures up now
video should be up later today
just trying to upload the video but it's super compressed and grainy
computers suck ass.
I like that mad hoodie and, well... all the pretty girls hehe.
The colours in that room really compliment the outfits, the photos look well lush.
the backstage room was pretty awesome too - same size but all in swedish blue and gold with a crazy black velvet ceiling studded with tiny lights mapping out the whole milky way and all the gold chairs had sword holders with swords in them
i've never wanted to nick stuff so much in my whole life but I would never have got away with it
thats brilliant I love old rooms like that they knew how to do it back in the day.
I wish my sofa had a sword holder on it :(
the video is up there now
it'll take a couple of minutes to load though
(you have to sing that like the raw hide theme for full effect)
you might have to refresh and clear your cache cos I just rejigged the html to make it bigger
I will try it again tho soooooon
good track. i enjoyed listening to it
but I liked the track it definately manages to keep things interesting over the course of 18 minutes, good stuff.
on the left
is actually how I dress for work.
The song is downloading...all 40 bumming Megs of it!
cos that will depend on yr screen size
on mine it seems like you wear a black off-the-shoulder asymmetric dress to work
I meant the leder hotpant combo
veh good track by the byzzz
Horsebox remix sometime?
That's nothing a band I was in did a 79 minute and 57 track... we where called naked shit the track was actually 82 minutes and 10 seconds but couldn't fit it all on a CD.
was it any good?
