Please listen loudly!
right work's over but i'm gonna listen to the rest when I get in. Your voice is great.
Loads crammed in to each song - you must have a whole orchestra in your head. Felt a bit proggy at times? In a good way. And your vocals are (insert fire emoji).
If feel pretty spent now to be honest that was a busy three days!
three days and lots of beer!
Big fan of the title threat of violins, music is very good too
Had to google it afterwards as I assumed it was already a thing
You are one talented individual!!
Fair play to you for creating this music, never mind doing it in 3 days!!
A DiS legend!
But thank you
You're always so supportive, thank you x
Reminds me in parts (and I mean this in a GOOD way!) of Pink Floyd. But then you change genre for each track - it's quite something.
Great work pal
Thanks for listening :)
Why is everyone so nice to me about this stuff? I can take the criticism honest!
Bask in the glory!
that I've heard in ages.
like summat you'd hear on Stuart Maconie's Freak Zone.
There are so many relatively easy ways to get music in to the public domain these days which means the quality is often questionable. This is head-and-shoulders above.
I will remember this comment at times when I'm feeling pretty down on things though if that's ok?
if I wasn't all that impressed I would probably have shied away from commenting. this is really strong :)
this is great.
This is totally a No Man's Sky soundtrack.
not too far off actually, I was thinking about this guy's sci-fi art around the time I made these
Had a wee listen in the office earlier once everyone fucked off, sounding great as always.
Will give a proper spin later.
Mon up to Glasgow and play a gig!!
Too much going on at the minute
actually a whole different country!
Keep up the good work, lad.
I was looking just now for the original thread where you dropped the Motivation album on an unsuspecting social board. Couldn't find the thread, but the response was a collective jaw drop. :-)
Your stuff has been consistently top notch ever since, and the response in threads is probably beyond what any other DiSer musician has mustered. And there's some damn fine musicians hanging out on here.
Personal favourite: A Little Dirt. Proper earworm.
It's understandable that you might not want or be able to push your stuff and chase dat unimaginable fame and riches. But you'll always have a receptive and appreciative audience in Drowned-land. And I hope that's a source of reassurance or pleasure rather than pressure when times aren't feeling mega.
because I suffer from depression and anxiety etc. I try to believe it's genuine I mean people have no real reason to lie to me but I'll never believe I'm good enough or deserve to be good enough. Just the way it is!
That thread was such a buzz for me though, basically everyone in here hated me at that point. One of the happiest and most fulfilling moments of my life I think.
As I always say, I can't thank you all enough for keeping me alive!
this is real. this is actual top bracket music. you need to be getting this released properly.
got to be people with connections and labels here, no?
it's not just that we all like you and want you to be happy, dude, though obviously we do. this merits praise, it merits widespread acclaim. you're a proper artist, an auteur, yeah?
That's obviously really kind of you to say but I have no idea how to react to a statement like that, I'm a dude in East Northamptonshire, not an artist.
I wonder what releasing properly means these days? I guess I could self promote a bit more but I dunno, it's bad enough that I keep bumping this thread on here.
but there's no reason not to consider yourself an artist - you're obviously very good at what you do and pour a lot of yourself into it - there's huge value in that.
Stick some records on Bandcamp and fling emails out to review sites, I reckon - it's good stuff and could well get picked up on!
Surely Sean can offer something as well? Man must have contacts.
is that it's just Bam on his own, and that the holistic detail puts other artists to shame; most music I can pick apart, but there's more to this. there's a genuinely distinctive artistic voice, here. :)
I'm earnest to a fault, and very deliberate with my words.
But wasn't logged in on my phone. Fuck you DiS
Anyway....this is really good and you should do something with it. Get it on iTunes. Set up specific fb page twitter etc.
Send to radio stations that accept sub missions. US ones too. Send it to review blogs.
If you can play live then do it
I have had a fair bit of success with my music by just doing this (except playing live)
Takes time but doesn't really cost you anything.
I also think it would make you feel good
and then immediately followed you on Soundcloud. As I type this I'm working my way back through all of the stuff. It's all genuinely really impressive!
You clearly have a gift for both songwriting and production. It's not just that the songs are great - though they are - it's also that the sounds and the instrumentation/arrangements are really interesting and clever too. Top stuff!
I guess I get bored doing the same thing sometimes, wish I could be more consistent.
not remotely what i was expecting (not sure what that was, mind), but loving this! :D MORE
hoping to do something else next time I have a week off work. Maybe bust out the acoustic a bit more.
Always a bit dubious when a community rush to pat one another on the back but this is cracking stuff.
Keep it coming.
still learning how to take a compliment well after all these years.
Thanks for listening and being nice though!
Adding to the other suggestions, ever thought about doing some soundtrack work?
Even just offering your services to short film makers for fun...
would be really neat to try and fit music to a theme.
Games for the most part, but I think he's done some telly stuff and whatnot, too - www.coltartmusic.com
Can imagine how this /might/ end up being a little stifling, though (and some might say, harshly I think, that it's selling out). On the other hand, if you can gather enough paid-for projects, then it might free up enough life so that the standard daily grind can be put to rest.
Daunting, mebbes. But there's seemingly a big old market out there for soundtrack-y stuff, and you've got talent, so summats to consider?
probably more challenging to be honest. Guess it all depends on exactly what kind of thing is required.
Bam, people aren't saying this for shits and giggles, this is really fucking good. Second track is halfway between Pink Floyd and Department of Eagles. Which is weird, but it works.
At the very least try and get your stuff on Spotify. It's frigging great.
I hardly ever know about any of people you guys mention. Sorry!
You're a real talent Bammers! <3
Your videogame related work on the Cane and Rinse forum? Its a podcast about videogames and they have a dedicated show called Sound of Play.
Often get composers in to talk about their work and sometimes play submissions from forum members. Could be worth sticking some of your output on it in case something comes of it.
If nothing else, a bunch of videogame nerds like me will like it!
But didn't you do a videogame score in the past or remix some Sonic levels? Apologies if not!
Not sure where that's gone, that was fun!
not for any negative reasons, you just don't expect real people to make good art really do you.
You like radical statements and stuff, right? Just think of it like that. It would be a shame to let someone more privileged and more boring than you take up the space in time that your music should get in the world outside of dis
is there merit to the world outside dis?
but either way you'll never know unless you go there
do you like Damien Jurado?
I hope he's good!
you're reeeally good (and you have a beautiful face).
Always think of myself as having kind of a big/fat face so that's nice to hear.
Have a good day!
