What do you sound like on Nu-ILX?

I made this track this evening using Audacity and Reason as a metronome. I've hardly ever recorded music with guitar and vocals, tending to do more electronic based stuff. It's a shame about the hiss, and the fact I can't play guitar or sing very well but I like the song I think.

Pointers and constructive criticism very welcome.

Now what do you sound like?

I've been working on some new songs tonight, but nothing seems to be working right now and I've got to buy a pack of smokes before I shoot myself.

Huh. I'm listening to Spiders right now, and I have to say, very Barrett-y. Your sound quality's better than mine tho (no surprise as I use garageband).

I posted something up mere minutes before old ilx went down the swanney. I described it as "po-faced proto-80's nonsense" and I stand by that.

Having practically clean, loud-in-the-mix vocals is a bit of a novelty for me but its something I'm sticking to for a bit to see what happens.

Lung Vomit and Monitor Nucleosis are my personal favorites.
Opossum is the most accessable.

I'll be doing some covers soon. I need to get the sheet music for one of those songs...but that's another thread altogether

I was listening to Carl Craig's "Televised Green Smoke" and I wanted to make Stevie Wonder's "My Cheri Amour" sound like that. No vocals yet because I feel inadequate to sing Stevie songs I can't be bothered right now.

Not very long really. The odd post here and there (about three, actually) on the old board. I might participate a bit more here, but if I had any sense I'd try and curtail internetage at work, rather than increase it.

Also, Jona, are Kicker not still going?

I don't think so, although I'm not totally sure. As far as I know Phil's moving across the water soon, so he's doing this Wooden Coin stuff with Laura from Harper Lee (and me, occasionally), which might get released somehow, but I think my participation brought about the death of Kicker.

I should try joining bands I don't like, and see if I have the same anti-success effect.

It'll be 10 times longer if I can find any musicians willing to play live (currently unlikely).

You can basically hear vocals and lead guitar really well (and lead guitar is mostly single-note lines that sound weird by themselves), the bass ok, the steel guitar a bit, the other guitar (which plays all the meaty chord parts) not at all, and in my drums you can barely hear the snare.

Hurting 2, Monday, 23 July 2007 12:35 (twelve years ago) link

Here's a couple of my tracks, the most recent is more of a demo (the rest are mixed & mastered, newest being "Grunge regurgitation")

Sounds better than I initially thought - not the greatest mix but I think the vocals come through really nicely.

Hurting 2, Sunday, 29 July 2007 20:51 (twelve years ago) link

That is kind of a weird snareless mix, but I don't think it sounds too bad. I just listened to the tune on your myspace, by the way, and I like it a lot.

xpost - They had the overhead mic pointed straight backwards to the wall because the mic stand was broken -- that may explain the lack of snare. ps thanks

That was me singing. I was more or less yelping syllables over whatever it was we were making up. It was all recorded on the internal mic of an MP3 player, but it was pretty much as distorted as it sounds on the recording.

Creative Zen Vision M. I've only been using it for the Belligerent Aunt jams though. The Mighties is all recorded on computer using Audacity or Acid Pro and a Shure SM-58 for the vocals. I tend to record guitar straight into the soundcard as when I use an amp it gives off a ridiculous amount of hiss and buzz.

latebloomer, Friday, 19 October 2007 04:28 (twelve years ago) link

This shouldn't count for "what do you sound like" but it's amusing so I'll post it here. As part of an exhibit on art and rock & roll at the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art, my band "rehearsed" in one of the artworks on Saturday. The artwork is a replication of the artist's old rehearsal space. It's supposed to be silent, with the instruments running directly into a mixer and electronic drums, and people can listen to the mix through headphones, but as you will hear, the vocals are obviously not silent:

what do you not sound like on nu-ILX

Jordan, Monday, 29 October 2007 17:46 (twelve years ago) link

I need to sit down and plow through this thread's links sometime. I just opened up latebloomer's "Jellyfish" just to get started and it's great! Love the energy level on all the Clonefeed tracks really. Are vocals in the future? These feel wonderfully like karaoke tracks from my next favorite band.

The Chubs McKenzie beats are nice too. Somehow I keep wanting them to be LODUER, which you'd think would be solved by me turning up the volume but somehow it isn't. Maybe I'm just craving more of the everything-besides-the-drums part of the sound, dunno.

"Baby When I Found Out" is cool. No guess at all on the sample but it sounds weirdly familiar in a good way.

negotiable, if you're out there, I'm very curious about your Acid mixy project as it sounds a lot like mine! The mainline Doctor Casino recording project is a little bit on the back burner right now, but: http://www.myspace.com/djaktorcosimo , I have been doing little mega-mashups in the Girl Talk tradition as a sort of diversion this school year...I somehow can't focus enough to work on my own songs so this is kind of fun in the meantime. Link from there to the Doctor Casino stuff if you're interested in my keyboard folk too.

Sample list o' samples (from "Hours & Hours")

Generation X, “Ready Steady Go” - Helium, “Lady Of The Fire” - Hall & Oates, “Portable Radio” - Pras, “Ghetto Supastar” - Fats Domino, “I’m Gonna Be A Wheel Some Day” - Jerry Reed (???), “When You Hot, You Hot” -
Paul McCartney, “Temporary Secretary” - Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, “Rag Doll” - Love Tractor, “I Broke My Saw” - Mark Morrison, “Return of the Mack” - De La Soul, “All Good” - Notorious BIG, “Mo Money Mo Problems” - Men At Work, “It’s A Mistake” - Percy Thrillington, “Monkberry Moon Delight” - Britney Spears, “Slave 4 U” - George Clinton, “Atomic Dog”

It's fun!

I am in a rock band. We have been playing shows for a year and a half or so. Sometimes people see us and say that we sound good but that we need more "stage presence." I guess they mean we should move around more and be more exciting. But we worry about THINKING too much about what we are doing on stage, that it will come across as too fakey and thought-out.
So how do you approach "stage presence"? Can you develop it?

thanks so much lynskey!

uptown churl, Saturday, 29 December 2007 11:48 (eleven years ago) link

EQ is boxy, the attributes of any reverb used seem to be pretty random, separation is woeful, vocals sound like the singer is trying to hide under a table in case anyone notices who he is, the dynamics suck, the distorted guitar sound has about as much prescence as an anemic ghost, that keyboard bass sound needs throwing down the nearest volcano, where's your snares at? . . . .

HOWEVER there's several serendipitous moments where it just seems to work really well, which is probably down to the strength of the ideas present more than anything. If you could send me the bits (and please send the vocals without verb) that'd be awesome. My emails in my profile.

thx. I was pretty surprised at how decent I could get the Garage Band synths to sound, especially the drums.

Sounds like a great recording, 6335. I wouldn't stress too much over the mixing. You've got good tracks, that's the most important thing.

And that was cool, m bison. I like the stereo hi-hats.

My first (and so far only song):

http://www.myspace.com/stepdaughtersca

Heavy Pet Shop Boys/New Order influence.

Advice/criticism would be appreciated (pls don't be to harsh though, this was done entirely on midi with not very good quality sounds; I'm just starting).

daavid, Friday, 15 February 2008 06:08 (eleven years ago) link

My next song will sound even more Pet Shop Boys.

daavid, Friday, 15 February 2008 06:09 (eleven years ago) link

get rid of those claps or replace with tight synth sound! otherwise the song writing is good!

Crackle Box, Friday, 15 February 2008 16:59 (eleven years ago) link

OK thanks, that makes sense.

WHERE ARE MY "MARGINS"???????

Lynskey, Saturday, 16 February 2008 00:50 (eleven years ago) link

i'm really into this song, david. it definitely sounds like it's influenced by New Order.

the synth/bass is completely great. the strings(?) feel right but could do with a little bit of variation. maybe u could blend them with a nice background synth in parts?

the percussion is fine, especially when you play with it, but the drums sound canned. but this might just be myspace sound.

the melody is really nice, and i like the epic feel of it, like it's taking its time until it gets to the chorus. but the vox should be clearer, and they should cut through the mix more. maybe with a phaser at times to vary up their position in the sound. i'd also just like to understand what you're singing better.

also, you could do with a little more oomph on the "i'm gonna be a star" line cuz it is one that can sound tired. i mean, i LIKE it, but at that point in the song, it feels like you could have a little more impact. i do think, though, that this could be achieved through singing the lyric a bit differently, if you're not up for altering the actual words.

Surmounter, Saturday, 16 February 2008 02:18 (eleven years ago) link

maybe u could blend them with a nice background synth in parts?

or electric guitar?

Surmounter, Saturday, 16 February 2008 02:19 (eleven years ago) link

Wow! thanks a lot Surmounter. That's definitely the most comprehensive and IMO best piece of advice I've heard so far!
I had a very limited palette of sounds I could use, yet I admit my limitations are precisely in the beat/drums section and the vocals; I mean, recording vocals is incredibly difficult. Like you did, I also felt like I wanted something else than the background synth strings at some points, but I just didn't know what to use. Overall I think I need to learn to "produce". Again, thanks a lot!

Dear Mr. Chriddof:

It seems clear, at least to me, that you despise most music, in the sense of the word that the electorate holds it. I would, therefore, greatly appreciate the challenge of turning your efforts into popular anthems, were you inclined to offer me the opportunity. My e-mail address can be discovered via the first link on the left below this post. Should I fail in my endeavour, you can at least be sure you did not fail in yours.

Regards,

The Mighty Sandy Heath Transmitters - Sweethearts Of The Fallout

Haven't made a new track in ages. This is one of the first tracks I made almost entirely in Reason (although I had to use Acid Pro/Sound Forge to record the vocals which are all performed by yours truly). There are a few things I wish I could change (sometimes the vocals are too loud, and they come in quite abruptly sometimes). But let me know what you reckon.

I made a westbound-ish funk track using nothing but garageband synths. Kind of pleased with it. It's really not a whole song, just a bunch of add-a-track loops. Once the other instruments all cut out, there's just an overlong percussion jam, so don't feel obligated to listen to that part:

❤ⓛⓞⓥⓔ❤ (CaptainLorax), Sunday, 28 December 2008 20:59 (ten years ago) link

What effects did you use? Sounds like a chorus and/or phaser, and a delay. There's quite a bit of hiss, but when I've tried doing something similar I've had the same problem.

snoball, Monday, 29 December 2008 11:41 (ten years ago) link

I think the basic pedals - chorus, flanger, reverb, delay, flanger and perhaps phase shifter or hi-gain. I might have been using his wah wah pedal as well. I was quite pleased how it turned out - in a pleasing ambient sound sort of way. Thanks for comments.

Rabies up in punx! I will so regret this, but here's the band I played guitar in (I should be mostly left channel..first thing you hear in the first song, anyhow) before we broke up and we all moved away.

Music was live and sloppy in a basement, recorded for posterity in like a few hours the afternoon before our final show. Vox in post.

And fyi we named the band at the very last moment before our first show. It was something the other guitar player's brother had spray painted in all caps across his skateboard ramp.

So yeah.

Yeah, it was a half-joking "punk" song I wrote during my senior year in high school. The gear isn't great, but isn't awful.

I used:
falsetto
black Fender Strat (Mexican) in dropped D tuning
awful, awful 15watt Crate amp with built-in gain turned up
Audacity (for recording)

And that was it.

This is his version of "Games without Frontiers" and like his usual best stuff it's ambient and moody and pretty damn good.

(xpost)

That's a really great song! I think it would be perfect as an album closer.
Probably doesn't need more instrumental bits. The mix sounds OK, so I'm kind of nitpicking here:

- the drums could be panned out a bit, at the moment they're all concentrated on the left
- maybe have the kick drum on the right and the bass guitar on the left?
- the synth that comes in at 2:30 needs to be a bit louder.
- maybe increase the volume on the acoustic guitars during the final chorus to add a bit of interest?

As I said, nitpicking really.

"Head Fulla Hate"

I really like this, but there's too much reverb on the vocals. I was walking about the place a few days ago singing "fuck around fuck around" to myself like a loony.

livinginthesunlightlovinginthemoonlighthavingawonderfultime (Curt1s Stephens), Sunday, 27 December 2009 19:35 (nine years ago) link

Gah Rob is like that too, he reverbs the feck out of everything. My vocals on one of his tracks sound like I fell down a well, and now I'm paranoid they're buried thus because I sing like shit.

millivanillimillenary (Trayce), Sunday, 27 December 2009 23:32 (nine years ago) link

My singing voice is probably the weakest part of my music. I've used and mis-used loads of tricks and techniques to make vocals less cringe-making to listen to: reverb, echo, double tracking, using funny voices, setting the vocal track volume low in the mix. But over the past year I've intentionally cut back on these and grit my teeth and gone "aaaargghgh" while mixing, because although it sounds terrible, after a few weeks when I listen to the song again, it's not as bad as I remember.

12 inches of (snoball), Sunday, 27 December 2009 23:48 (nine years ago) link

Yeah its that old "hate the sound of yr own voice" thing innit? I've sung in things on and off for years and I cannot shake disliking the tone of my vocals even though I'm a reasonably ok (if not strong) singer.

Doctor Casino, Sunday, 24 January 2010 01:14 (nine years ago) link

Also digging the St3v3 G01db3rg material - I'm generally iffy on this kind of organic-instrument, vaguely Elephant-Sixy stuff, but the tunes are good and the mixes have a nice feel, not too home-made but not too precise and cleaned-up.

Sweet cover art too. Actually, everything I'm checking out from this thread has pretty cool art! Like, the Rooftop Access album isn't my kind of thing* but I love the cover.

* - to be fair, it probably would be if it was just on in the background, but when I'm clicking individual tracks on the internet I get impatient and want things to be happening that I can sing along to. I am a simple man.

St3ve Go1db3rg, Saturday, 24 April 2010 23:23 (nine years ago) link

lol thanks. part of the reason I didn't go further is that I'm a baritone and can't really sing Mercury's solo part. I also have switched computers and need a new (re: PIRATED) version of CoolEditPro.

Bogart Puff 'n Stuff (Cattle Grind), Sunday, 25 April 2010 14:53 (nine years ago) link

You might want to try REAPER - one of the included plug-ins is a pitch shifter that can be accurately set for cents/semitones/octaves.

thanks for the tip. I got pretty good at pitchshifting on CoolEdit actually but I always sounded like a chipmunk. what I usually did was lower the backing music a few steps instead, sing over it in a range I can do, then undo the key lowering of the backing music and pitchshift the vocal up a few.

I made a really weird cover of "Never Gonna Let You Go" by Sergio Mendes that way....which I don't have anymore.

Bogart Puff 'n Stuff (Cattle Grind), Sunday, 25 April 2010 21:12 (nine years ago) link

I recently did a piece for my electronic music class based on W. S. Burroughs' cut-up-technique (actually not his original idea but he's who tuned me in to it). I recorded a piano track to 1/4 in. tape and cut it to pieces and reassembled it.

Hope you enjoy it:

Cut Up Technique

Captain Ahab, Monday, 26 April 2010 03:39 (nine years ago) link

That's really good. I like the reverse bits - I guess that doing cut-up in a DAW wouldn't sound the same unless sections were randomly reversed.

I was fucking around in Reason and accidentally figured out how to modify the filters on parts I'd already recorded so I recorded most of the instrumental for this song as a test. Then I decided it sounded a little too uh Fatboy Slim-esque so I laid down some psychedelic harmony vocals and a little guitar part. Now it's kind of busy and disjointed but I like it:

Static on the Line

congratulations (n/a), Monday, 26 April 2010 15:20 (nine years ago) link

Awesome. I did a Burroughs style project in my degree. Was there a music or musicology book that features his cut up stuff in relation to music? Seem to remember an excellent book with this and can't for the life of me remember the name of it.

I wrote a paper on the use of the tape machine as an artist tool in the fities/sixties a couple of years ago, was great to research. Been using a couple of reel to reel machines myself for a while, such a rewarding medium to work with.

circle git (S-), Tuesday, 27 April 2010 00:08 (nine years ago) link

Thanks guys.

snoball- I've sort of tried to do cut up on Cool Edit, but it really is not the same at all. While visual editing with the waveform mapped out on screen is great and all, doing it with tape and having to edit with my ears was much more challenging and satisfying. I did so many edits that my razor was blunted.

Owen- I haven't heard of such a book but I would love to read it if you can remember what it's called.

S- This was my first hands on experience with reel to reel and I seriously wish I owned my own machine. I think I could do an entire album based on the cut up technique. You're right, it is an incredibly rewarding medium because if you fuck up, the flaw is physical and by nature the tape requires minute attention to detail.

Captain Ahab, Tuesday, 27 April 2010 03:21 (nine years ago) link

that track sounds amazing, exactly what I love.

I just finished the first track from my new album and am judging whether it's too OTT

http://soundcloud.com/danielfridholm/smoke-you

owenf, Wednesday, 2 June 2010 12:18 (nine years ago) link

That sounds really good. The OTT-ness fits the track, it's not excessive at all. I think that the string sound from the intro could be used a bit more. There's a long section between the verse and the chorus that could be cut down to a 4 bar build using those strings. Also the chorus could be repeated again at the end, with all the instruments.

Fat Dog Franklin (snoball), Wednesday, 2 June 2010 12:56 (nine years ago) link

Thanks owenf. I agree with snoball, I think the chorus comes in a little late. Besides that it's excellent.

the subject of many men’s thoughts (daavid), Thursday, 3 June 2010 04:11 (nine years ago) link

Thank for the kind words guys. Think I might do some cutting of tracks. The whole idea is to make a really pop/vaguely commercially viable album so I suppose keeping track lengths down is a must.

I have ANOTHER new one up due to a record company man telling me to write a load of pop songs. This is my attempt at something vaguely Ke$ha or something. Not too sure about the autotune thing. Happily selling out though!

http://soundcloud.com/danielfridholm/limez-demo-mp3

owenf, Monday, 14 June 2010 18:51 (nine years ago) link

^ Excellent! I think the autotune works and I love the synths in the chorus. There's something that bothers me a little about the contrast between the "Sometimes" and the rest (the autotuned part) of the verse. Either one is too loud or the other one not loud enough.

the subject of many men’s thoughts (daavid), Monday, 14 June 2010 19:15 (nine years ago) link

yeah, there's some mixing issues for sure in all of these tracks. I'm using a lot of software on a computer that can't quite handle it and I have but one monitor and rubbish headphones. Also there are things that i really don't understand about the way that Logic bounces. Things change seemingly at random, might try outputting it in a different way when it comes to making some tighter mixes. Glad you like it though, cheers!

emotional radiohead whatever (Jordan), Wednesday, 21 July 2010 15:34 (nine years ago) link

Wow, owenf, I really like the arrangement of "Smoke" - great sound you've got going with the disco strings fighting off the Nintendo bleeps and bloops and everything else. My gut says the vocals are mixed too high, but maybe that's what you're going for. Agreed about the late chorus - the instrumental passage between verse and chorus actually has a cool texture but it goes on long enough that it feels like we've hit the end of the song and the band are winding out with a jam, y'know? Momentum gets broken. But really a cool sound.

crut: I'm digging "People." I actually think this one could survive the vocal being louder, sort of reverberating in the medieval hall of the rest of the track if that makes sense. I like how thick the mix is for being lo-fi, when the backing vocals (synth pad?) come in it's like, I didn't even realize there was room for them in there. It's cool.

But hey, what do I know? I haven't recorded original material in years now...although I think I am finally getting close to putting the finishing touches on the Girl Talk knockoff project described upthread (in 2007!!!), after which I'm gonna break out the keyboards again and get to work. But as far as the mashup thing goes, if y'all are into that kinda thing, there's a couple new chapters here: http://www.myspace.com/djaktorcosimo - "Unthinkable Terror" followed immediately in the mix by "The Prince and the Renegades."

thanks jordan, no i took that as a compliment. just a shame i couldn't upload the last two tracks as they're much more detailed and better produced (if such a thing is achievable using only Acid Pro and Soundforge plus a bit of basic Reason for "effects").

dear ilx, help us produce this track

http://soundcloud.com/constantlightduo/piano-bass

a quick idea that turned out better than expected but unsure where to take it from here. first thought is some sort of echoey spoken part but i'd rather it not end up sounding like a straight hood ripoff. any thoughts?

do you know sixty (electricsound), Thursday, 2 September 2010 10:48 (nine years ago) link

sounds really nice. i would add a heavy dilla-style beat, but you know me (actually i would love to sample this).

the parking garage has more facebook followers than my band (Jordan), Thursday, 2 September 2010 16:15 (nine years ago) link

i do think you could add some subtle percussion, like fast clicky stuff in the background or a reverbed-out tambourine on the 4.

do the bass notes hit on the upbeat or the downbeat?

the parking garage has more facebook followers than my band (Jordan), Thursday, 2 September 2010 16:16 (nine years ago) link

Yeah, I was thinking kind of flickery percussive noises. But that might be something to avoid if you want to not get Post-Rock/IDM crossover comparisons.

cymose corymb (Karen D. Tregaskin), Thursday, 2 September 2010 16:19 (nine years ago) link

good feedback guys. i like the idea of some spidery percussion but the biggest problem is that no click track was used at all, so the timing is almost certainly all over the place - so it couldn't really be a 'beat' per se. the sensible thing to do would be to re-record it but that's kinda against the spirit of what we do..

a tambourine that follows the bass could probably work though, will give it a try. the bass is on 1 & 4 so kinda both the up and downbeats i guess?

also feel free to sample if you desire!

do you know sixty (electricsound), Friday, 3 September 2010 01:23 (nine years ago) link

Lazy bad idea: drop it into Ableton and warp it

More complicated idea that will keep the natural live groove: edit it in something which allows you to visualise the wave forms so you can tell where the beat falls naturally, and drop in samples that align

diggin those punchier drums, man!

Fetchboy, Sunday, 14 November 2010 12:04 (nine years ago) link

I wish the snare sound wasn't total ass on the original recording. The mic must have moved and got off target, it also sounds like it bounced off the rim of the drum itself a couple of times. I'm pretty cool with the rest of the mix. I don't think it sounds bad for going live to 6 tracks in a garage with a couple of overdubs.

I'm going to try one last mix, but first I am going to load the snare track into Ableton and try some of the gate and filters to maybe come up with a sound with some snap that I can blend in with the original track and maybe get the sound I'd like.

"This podcast is not available outside the UK" :(
I took a break from working on my snythpop nasoalmo entry this morning and made this little thing. Goes out of sync at a couple of points on account of my shitty guitar playing, but I think it's kinda nice for 4 tracks on a shitty acoustic.

Fetchboy, Friday, 19 November 2010 15:15 (nine years ago) link

That's pretty good. I don't think the out of sync-ness matters too much, in fact may make it more interesting if the guitars drift in and out of sync. Co-incidentally I was just playing arpeggios on my guitar while thinking "wow I suck at this!".

(xp) Interesting stuff. I thought that the second track of the three was the best. I've tried that kind of "no speakers" overdubbing but it's a bit different because I was overdubbing myself.

bows don't kill people, arrows do (Jordan), Friday, 19 November 2010 22:13 (nine years ago) link

Sweet stuff MaresNest, excellent vibe you three get! I think the third piece is my favourite - the subtle shift in momentum about four minutes in is superb, and the Ud dude plays a totally ace solo (as, later, does the cellist). Your own wibblings are sonorous and most relaxing - that harmonic bassline in the 2nd piece is excellent (and the loose vibe of that piece overall is really cool), and the first piece works up to a mighty conflagration.

(Yeah, I was commissioned to listen to this, hehe, but it's mad good and I'm glad I did!)

-dog latin you are a rad guitarist! one of the first things i learned playing is that nobody is as hardass as classical guitarists, so even a 'pretty good' one can knock yr avg rock guitarist (like, say, me) on his ass.

-jordan i listened to yr record all day at work today and it is like all my favorite college listening habits put into one album i <3 it

-billstevejim yr band makes me want to skateboard and that is 1000% a compliment

i'm pretty amped about my next little set of songs. i'm trying to keep myself to my self-imposed deadline and have up for the streaming by tuesday, but i really think this is my best batch of songs yet, lil gaslighty at points and lil ryan adams at points and i'm finally using something resembling a real mic even if i'm still stuck with audacity on a netbook.

i realize that my fake country singer songwriter thing is like the least exciting thing in this thread but u know. yall are my people. i share my things with my people

One of the songs uses cowbells pitched down to sound like steel drums (probably the only drum sounds I've actually recorded myself).

here's a song i've been working on for a couple of weeks. I was procrastinating having to do vocals so I ended up adding tons of layers (for me) and then mixing it got complicated and I'm not sure the whole thing really coheres but it's kind of cool:

Okay, so I finally had a listen to the Constant Light record on my way to work this morning and it's excellent! Great Job guys, bringing the 'wub' in a supremely elegant fashion. I'm looking forward to hearing what else is planned for this year.

Have to say, it felt very much that I should really be listening to it on a late night ride through the streets of Tokyo, as opposed to a grey, drizzly commute through the suburbs of NW London!

I was tickled to hear a specific keyboard sound that I'm certain I've only heard on OMD records, like the end of 'Georgia' for instance (if you know that song).

Would love, love to do a remix if you are interested in that sort of thing.

I've recorded some demos, but the mixing is atrocious, so I'll just post this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SGuGsutualE

I've spent about 4 years trying to figure out how to play in that style, while at the same time getting into dance music. So obviously, the next step is to find someone who can replicate 2 step and UK garage beats on a drum kit, and have a delightfully incongruous Dadrock/Funky house band!

Sounds almost like a non-operatic electro Associates with early 90's rave synths. I'm diggin it; is that you singing? The guitar on the third track fits in well with the electronics; since hearing the Dirtbombs album I've become really enamoured of the idea

Glad you're diggin it! I was originally intent on this project having no guitar, but couldn't help myself. And yeah, unfortunately right now it's all me, but if I can get it up and running I'd like to enlist some help from friends for live performances and help in fleshing some things out.

What instrument is being played by the guy sitting to the right of the keyboard player? Looks like he's doing some mixer feedback but then there's something else further down that I can't make out.

he's mostly using an old record player and a piece of aluminium foil through a mixer and some effects. so as soon as everyone else starts playing in such a small setting it's basically a noisy microphone...

hey guys this kind of sounds like shit! like from a sonic perspective i think it sounds pretty shitty. i want to do a self recorded project and this is my first little demo, just figuring out how to work protools etc...

but it's kinda bumming me out...i dunno...any advice?

tylerw, Wednesday, 6 July 2011 16:24 (eight years ago) link

have you done much eq on it? it sounds like there are a lot of non-bass instruments that could use a low-cut filter, and maybe you could make sure they're not competing for the same space around the low mids. but i think it sounds clear enough, depending on what you're going for of course.

hardcore oatmeal (Jordan), Wednesday, 6 July 2011 17:07 (eight years ago) link

no jordan, don't know much about EQing...the bass i used this preset on the 36 band EQ plugin called "Bass DI Helper" because I was going direct in with the bass, and that seemed to help...

i'll check for maybe a "low cut filter" on the keyboards, but i think you might be on the right track, maybe that's the muddiness

i guess it sounds ok, this was basically just a test track to get myself acquainted with doing something resembling a "song"

the beta banned (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Wednesday, 6 July 2011 17:35 (eight years ago) link

this could be a whole other thread, but maybe try playing around with an eq, like doing exaggerated boosts in a small frequency area just to see where a given instrument lives. i cut everything below ~400 - 500 hz on all kinds of non-bass tracks, but especially vocals and percussion/samples.

Dog Latin, I like 'Hertford Loop' as a sound sculpture very much! Could listen to that longer.

I agree that the first track, which has a sick rhythm, could do with some extra "flair" maybe, but I hope you won't abandon it!

Though hearing you play guitar makes me wish you could somehow bridge guitar, singing and beats (without becoming James Blake). You are showing true potential on a whole range of areas here!

MIXING IS SO F-ING HARD!!!

trying to mix my "little dog" track for the ilx covers loutallica project

it's like, on one hand, stuff like protools has made it super easy to just get stuff down to the point where ppl are like "yes that is a song" but it's that extra level of knowledge about compressors and EQ and stuff that really makes a good mix a good mix is what's missing! really irritating because i can hear in my head how it *should* be but i can't make it like that

in my darkest moments i'm honestly considering mixing this stupid joke metallica song at a professional studio haha

hardcore oatmeal (Jordan), Monday, 26 September 2011 19:08 (eight years ago) link

i'm a lot more confident in my mixing than i was a year ago, but still not totally happy with any of my solo in-the-box mixes. doing a thing now where i'm sending stems (mostly groups of synths and vocals) to an engineer for him to bounce down to tape, then i combine those with my original bass & drum stems for a final mix. it has a nice analog summing effect and i still get to obsess over the final balance of everything.

tylerw, Monday, 26 September 2011 21:43 (eight years ago) link

really irritating because i can hear in my head how it *should* be but i can't make it like that

Yes, this is the worst feeling. I was explaining to the mixing engineer just the other day how I hate it when I know a section of a song needs to sound "exciting," I know that it doesn't sound "exciting" yet, but I don't know how to get it there.

But it's always interesting how when you do get it there it was often via a totally different route than you had first thought -- e.g., sometimes you make the vocal sound more powerful by turning something *else* up.

St3ve Go1db3rg, Monday, 26 September 2011 22:12 (eight years ago) link

I really feel like DJing is making me better at mixing. When I mix my tracks with similar music, I can pretty quickly tell when there's a problem that needs to be addressed and I have a good idea of what needs fixing, way more intuitively than if I just compare it to a guide track.

owenf, Tuesday, 27 September 2011 12:29 (eight years ago) link

Mixing is pretty much voodoo. You raise something up other things start to vanish. Pretty much I just go with notch EQing dropping something out trying to bring something in on the track you want to come out some.

The hardest thing to get for me is getting a good drum sound. I can make the guitars sound good and bass etc, but the drums are always kind of limited by where (an untreated garage), the speed (pretty much line 'em up and go) and how we have recorded (pretty much live in the same room quite loud).

Towards the end of October we are going to do a second batch of recordings and I'm going to try some different things. I got a headphone distribution amp and I am going to setup the guitar and bass direct for the base track and cut the drums in the room without a ton of bleed from everything else. Then we are going to go back and overdub on top. The scratch guitar and bass could still be usable, as I have been able to get some decent sounds with a bass preamp and running a line off an attenuator.

earlnash, Wednesday, 28 September 2011 02:19 (eight years ago) link

Oh yeah and I still need to get my drummer to get a new front bass drum head with a mic port. That solid drum works probably good for jazz in Rudy's living room to get the real sound of the kick, but it about impossible to get the beater sound just with a microphone on the front of the kick drum (especially with a bass amp and a loud tube amp in the same room not minding the PA with the live vocals).

I tried putting a mic on the inside of the kick where the beater was located but that thing was picking up so much from the snare and seemingly everything else, it was a worthless track to use in the mix.

Mixing is pretty much voodoo. You raise something up other things start to vanish. Pretty much I just go with notch EQing dropping something out trying to bring something in on the track you want to come out some.

ime if i find myself in this situation it generally means a problem with the arrangement. what instruments are you having a problem with? how essential can the parts be if they are easily masked by another part?

curious as to what kick drum mic you are using. is the kick being played particularly softly? i don't think i've ever gotten snare bleed in my kick mic...

minge beat (electricsound), Wednesday, 28 September 2011 03:20 (eight years ago) link

I wouldn't say masked, but become less present. This is more in fine tuning a mix going for say an instrument texture rather than something being heard at all. Say you boost a snare track a half to one db to try to get to cut just a little bit better, but when that total track is boosted, you loose a bit of texture out of say the attack on a bass guitar or kick drum. It's not a total mask like something moves out of phase, more on a micro level in the whole mix when you have gotten to the point that just raising or lowering your faders or trim on the mixer channels won't get you 'there' and at that point really it is the limitation of the original sound in that particular track. EQ, compression, etc. can work some but at some point, but with each of those choices it is a compromise and ultimately goes back to the inherent weakness in the original sound.

Our drummer has a trad style front kick drumhead that doesn't have the built in port for putting a microphone into the kick, so it is hard to get that more high end thwack of the beater on the inside head. Early on in practices, I tried some tricks to isolate the kick a bit and it really made it worse by putting a blanket over the kick with the mic underneath (which worked pretty good to cut down some high end bleed when micing through the kick port) but with the full face kick drum head, it added this weird low end rumble to the proceedings. It was better to just let it bleed.

What I tried to have another option on getting that beater on the kick sound was putting a second microphone and track on the other head, where the beater is located - but that track turned out to be pretty much worthless to try and mix, as it would get the beater and a crap load of the under snare sound (rattle rattle) on each hit. Yeah you would get the beater better, but the rattle from under the snare was annoying and really couldn't be EQ'ed out with any good results. I ended up not using it at all and quit recording it. I've tried double micing a snare with one on top and one below and it has never panned into anything usable.

earlnash, Wednesday, 28 September 2011 03:58 (eight years ago) link

yeah the kick thing does sound pretty challenging. i'm assuming removing the front head entirely is not possible?

(best kick sound i ever got was from one with no front head)

surprised about the snare thing - i love top/bottom snare micing, wouldn't do it any other way now. though there was that time i finished a mix and wondered why my snare sound was so thin, not realising til later that i hadn't flipped the phase on one of the channels..

Thanks! I've alway got tremendous problems doing vocals, it was ok back when I was doing the electronic stuff as I could drown it all in effects, I couldn't really hide with these ones. I'm a complete wimp in that I'll only record vocals if the house is empty, there's no-one in next door and no-one stood at the bus stop over the road. So things tend to be a bit rushed. Plus these needed to be belted out / screamed in a lot of places and I feel like an idiot doing that sort of thing in an empty house.

I've been using a bit more of my old analog gear, jamming tracks, and dirtying up by recording to tape recently.

Made this track just before Christmas which sounds a little bit Drexciyan, mixed with a riff that after finishing the track I realised sounds like Mamma Mia :D

Laughing Gravy (dog latin), Thursday, 9 February 2012 23:44 (seven years ago) link

started doing a bit of djing at parties again and making these long lindstromy transition tracks with only analog synth samples and live desk/controller automation. Would love to invest in better gear so I could do full sets of it but currently having to go through 5 or 6 times to get it right.

Dick Townwolves (Captain Ahab), Tuesday, 14 February 2012 08:17 (seven years ago) link

Yeah I've got loads more. When I finish off a few other projects I might stick them up as a packaged download somewhere.

I've been incredibly prolific music-wise since I moved away from my computer with FL studio and realized I can make better tracks on Audacity alone (!)

This is my last outing (a kind of remix of Mr. Me Too by Clipse) and is probably among the more interesting examples of non dancey stuff I've made (though the intro is kind of stupid).

trivial fursuit (m bison), Tuesday, 28 February 2012 17:58 (seven years ago) link

hmm, that looks cool, but i think the pads are probably too small (i want to integrate the pad surfaces into my drum setup so that i can just kind of whack a pad on occasion without having to aim for a tiny surface)

i guess if you already have a laptop, one of those alesis pad controllers is way cheaper than getting a roland spd-s.

re: pads, the video game rock drum pads/controllers that sometimes are very cheap on clearance are electronically identical to alesis/roland edrum pads (they are just these very cheap components surrounded by rubber padding), and sometimes interchangeable even without adapters, and the adapter is usually a 1/8" -> 1/4" if there is one.

I always feel trepidation about posting about my music project. I suck at self-promotion. But I've been uploaded a song a week so far in 2012 - up to 22 now - on Bandcamp (and now Aurovine as well). It's gotten a handful of downloads, but nothing near the attention some of my earlier releases received so I suspect I've already moved into "I liked the earlier stuff better" territory where I say that XXX is the best album I've made in years.

Anyway, this new wave/post-punk/krautrock/electropop/etc conglomerate can be found here:

but you could fit what i know about "dubby deep house" in a thimble

it reminded me of burial just cuz of the vocal chop up thing, but that's probably just because burial is the only thing remotely like this that i've listened to a lot.

Jandek at the Disco (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Wednesday, 22 August 2012 15:46 (seven years ago) link

UMS - I'm at work now, but as a fellow amateur fingerpicker I'm interested in this.

PS, did anyone listen to my song? I hate to ask, but I'd like to get some feedback before laying down money to go into a studio and getting it recorded properly. It really is just a demo, but the structure and lyrics are pretty much there.

Here's that tenner I owe you, asshole (dog latin), Wednesday, 22 August 2012 15:54 (seven years ago) link

oh yeah i forgot to post....i liked it, and i think it would benefit from more instrumentation and production....but the vocal stuff is interesting not many ppl try to do stuff like that anymore

Jandek at the Disco (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Wednesday, 22 August 2012 16:35 (seven years ago) link

Hey cheers UMS. It's interesting you say that because I was going for an almost self-consciously retro approach to songwriting. I wanted to do a song about mods and rockers, but have it apply to pretty much any area of teen culture and the difficulty of trying to fit in and wanting to find ones place in a scene and all that kind of thing. But on the whole it kind of just evolved and I didn't necessarily TRY to make it sound old-fashioned, so what you say there is p interesting to me, because I've no idea exactly what it is I was doing that not many people don't do any more... Don't know if that makes sense.

Street Dentist - yeah great name and a great beat. Love the orchestra samples and the 808 work. What software you using at the moment? I like the idea of producing "rhythms" or even "riddims". I'd like to release a whole album simply made up of beats for people to MC over - something along the lines of http://www.souljazzrecords.co.uk/releases/?id=23718

Now for Anabelle... I don't often fuck with different tunings myself and I'd really like to try and learn more about it. But this is really sweet and it sounds like you've got it nailed (particularly the tricky chord switch halfway through the bar). Sounds like you're using an acoustic with metal strings. I found moving to nylons opened up a huge new world for me, but like running with sandbags I can no longer play my old acoustic without a pick unless I want to have very sore fingers.

Great work all round mate.

i have this weird old cheap synth i bought of craigslist that i keep meaning to take home but it's in my office so i made this up the other nite...can hear too much key noise though should have put my phone farther away

jalapeno kloppers (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Monday, 24 September 2012 23:29 (seven years ago) link

does it have a make/model on it? sounds cool, the vibrato is nice.

have a sandwich or ice cream sandwich (Jordan), Tuesday, 25 September 2012 01:17 (seven years ago) link

yeah it's a bit of an oddball synth called the Yamaha PortaSound PSS-680 Music Station

I can't really figure out who it was made for, because it's on one hand definitely a cheap, Casio-feeling unit, got 100 cheesy preset voices and 100 cheesy rhythm preset tracks w/autochord etc...the build quality is low like something you'd buy at Best Buy, plastic and small keys etc...

but the weird thing is that for some reason they included a bunch of features that you'd normally see in a higher-end synth like this digital synth module that basically emulates and analog synth, letting you fuck w/all the sine wave stuff and modulation/frequency/decay etc, except instead of knobs you use buttons...

you can also save sounds but i don't know how to and i bet the internal battery is long dead...so basically just start with a cheeesy preset sound and then start fucking with it with the analog synth modeler thing and you can end up w/some cool sounds...there's also preset effects like stereo chorus/vibrato/portamento/reverb etc

i looked stuff up and i think circuit bender dudes like it

i'm sure a chillwave band would get a big boner over it...got it for $40, neat toy

jalapeno kloppers (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Tuesday, 25 September 2012 16:08 (seven years ago) link

It's 2 operator FM, like a very cut down consumer grade version of the type of synthesis used on the DX-7. The sounds are programmable over MIDI using a piece of s/w called PSS Edit, which gives access to additional parameters that aren't available from the front panel.

farte blanche (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Monday, 1 October 2012 17:06 (seven years ago) link

i've been reading morton feldman and john cage recently so i decided to do my own chance composition.

http://soundcloud.com/weinventyou/indeterminate

here are the "rules:

Indeterminate

Five channels of sound - left, left-center, center, right-center, right.
Five pitches, player's choice (I chose C2, F2, A2, C3, F3).
Two sections, each 60 beats long. Tempo is the player's choice.

In each movement, there are five notes that are played in each channel.

The duration of the five notes is partially randomized (see below).
The notes must be played sequentially - from low to high in the first section, and from high to low in the second section.
Each note begins very quietly, reaches its loudest point in the middle of the duration, and ends very quietly.

Determining duration of notes
The duration of the five notes must add up to 60 beats in each movement.
The duration of each note must be, at a minimum, at least 4 beats.
There are a number of ways to randomly determine the duration of each note, using a computer, while keeping the minimum duration above 4. Here's one:

Lower limit = 4
Upper limit = (60 - (sum of beats used so far)) - (4 x (remaining rolls - 1))

Example
For the first random "roll" in a channel:
sum of beats used so far = 0
remaining rolls = 5

Lower limit = 4
Upper limit = (60 - 0) - (4 x (5 - 1)) = 44

I use a computer to generate a random number between 4 and 44. The computer chooses 25. The duration of the first note is 25 beats.

Second random roll in a channel:
sum of beats used so far = 25
remaining rolls = 4

Lower limit = 4
Upper limit = (60 - 25) - (4 x (4 - 1)) = 23

I use a computer to generate a random number between 4 and 23. The computer chooses 12. The duration of the second note is 12 beats.

Continue doing this for five rolls to generate the duration of the five notes in a channel, which will add up to 60 beats. (Optional: randomize the order of the five generated rolls)

Repeat for all five of the channels, and for each of the two sections (first section starts low and ends high, second section starts high and ends low).

congratulations (n/a), Friday, 5 October 2012 21:10 (seven years ago) link

Haha, thanks! Yeah, I'm not a very good technical writer (or a writer in general) so I probably didn't describe it very well. But the gist is generating 5 random numbers that add up to 60 beats, and using those for the durations of the notes.

Thanks WEBSITE!! (Z S), Friday, 5 October 2012 21:21 (seven years ago) link

If I knew how to program, i think it would be possible to write a piece of code that would perform the song using randomly generated numbers each time. On repeat, and every rendition would be similar but different. I guess the trick would be connecting the code to a sound generator.

I know some arduino, and I know you can hook it up to programs like msp...hmm...

My drummer posted the final mix and mastered version of "Disco Demolition Night" by my band Atomic Thrillride a couple days back. As discussed on another thread around the site, I did end up using Carl Saff to master our record. The guy worked it and I think the whole batch of tunes turned out sounding pretty good for a set of recordings done in a garage largely live with no separation or baffling.

Production wise, base part of this track (guitar, bass & drums) is live including the wah part in the middle. Buddy of mine thinks the overdubs kind of give it a 'radar love' feel in the breakdown. I talked my guitarist into overdubbing that reverse guitar part in the changeover. I asked him to do something really basic and droning during the transition and he looked at me like I was a goofball, but once I flipped it over in the audio editor, I think it worked out pretty cool.

earlnash, Saturday, 6 October 2012 04:36 (seven years ago) link

Oh yeah, for the old synth gear lovers, the synth over dub on this one is a Roland MKS-50 string sound.

Ismael Klata, Sunday, 7 October 2012 17:57 (seven years ago) link

that's really cool! it's a manipulated field recording (looped children?) with your piano on top?

Thanks WEBSITE!! (Z S), Monday, 8 October 2012 00:17 (seven years ago) link

On top and underneath. The source is actually a recording of my little boy singing a kids' tv song - the drone is twelve different loops of him attempting a harmony (triple-tracked and delayed to build to thirty-six vocal tracks, not that you can hear any change after the instruments come in!); and then the scraps are overlaid towards the end to give the impression of some sort of (very young) crowd.

The instruments are mostly some world instrument settings, played on the black keys as the drone came out somewhere near B flat. I spent ages remixing them, adding panning and modulating volume, trying to create an effect of musicians moving about within the crowd, but again it's barely perceptible even when the pan is quite extreme. I think there's too much going on to leave room for any studio wizardry.

Ismael Klata, Monday, 8 October 2012 06:14 (seven years ago) link

that's v nice Ismael, perhaps what Onra would come up with if he decided to orientalise your house.

After a few years of inactivity I've made tentative steps back into doing music stuff, playing around on Ableton and with the only instrument setup I brought with me when I moved last year - cheapass ukulele -> delay/looper. This is what I got when I combined the two:

these albatrosses have no fear of man (La Lechera), Friday, 12 October 2012 13:55 (seven years ago) link

well, i am mostly lucky about getting into this job i guess. i always knew i had good sense of smell. i once did a job application for a so called smell panel in amsterdam during my studies (i actually majored in philosophy). they needed people who would go to places in the city to smell and judge if there is 'smell polution',so i thought making money smelling things would be cool, so i applied. but i had to do a test, because they wanted people with very 'average' sense of smell, because they would be most suitable to judge when a smell would give hinder. i was gonna go through a set of two tests on two days, but after the first test they already told me i didn't have to come back for the second test, because my smell was so much above average, and i would be to sensitive to give usable judgment about smell polution. but after that i kinda felt i should do something with my nose and started getting interested in the world of fragrance. also because i have always very much lived by my senses, also with sound and music, and food, etc.
i ended up writing a lot of people for internships, and finally ended up as a lab employee at IFF in hilversum (small place close to amsterdam) and worked further from there. also, designing smells is not always designing perfumes as a lot of people think when you say you work with fragrance. a lot of consumer products have designed fragrances, food products, fabrics, cosmetics, etc. it's also a lot of chemistry and technical stuff. one day i would like to focus on perfume though, but that's quite hard i think. the world of perfume designers is on of the few that still works with apprenticeship. there is a school for perfumery in grasse and versaille, but it is very very expensive to study there. i think givaudan also has a perfumery school somewhere, but it is probably also pretty hard to get in. the only thing i can say is, built up a memory of smells. focus very much on the technical and chemical side of it, and be willing to be patient and start at the bottom. or just start with trying to make your own perfume at home, there are definitely some more niche perfumers who started that way. it is all very much about practical experience. i think to be honest the best way to go for people wanting to work in the fragrance industry would be to get a degree in chemistry and try getting a entry level job at a fragrance related company.

identify with this! while i'm under no illusion that i am going to become a smell professional, i've dabbled in perfumery and smell-making. also enjoy the chemical side of things (commercial fragrances, etc) and have read a few books, but i'll always be a dilettante. i admire your life's path! and your music is pleasing too.

Ismael Klata, Wednesday, 14 November 2012 18:48 (seven years ago) link

thanks (and yr too kind about the errors, they are driving me nuts)

my ambition is to do an album of acoustic instrumental stuff, i cannot sing or write lyrics at all....thinking of using some primitive drum machine and synth textures underneath but nothing too much, just need to keep writing stuff & hope it's compelling enough musically to stand on its own

did this refix very quickly after being introduced to it by n/a:

it's basically an edit with a new beat + effects. could have added more parts but it didn't feel necessary.

i feel like it's the most likely to work in a dj set out of anything i've done so far, but my perspective may be skewed.

In high school, I was in a band that recorded a song (http://soundcloud.com/a-guy-called-fieri/outburstmp3) with verses that sound just like "The Lion Sleeps Tonight." We had no clue until after we recorded the song. If only we could have shazam'd ourselves 8 years ago.

Mozzarella i Fieri (Sufjan Grafton), Thursday, 15 November 2012 21:05 (seven years ago) link

nice that reminds me of the lucksmiths

ums (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Thursday, 15 November 2012 21:07 (seven years ago) link

In retrospect, I think we did sound like low production value lucksmiths. I liked the lucksmiths very much at one point in my life. We really wanted to sound like the Eccsame the Photon Band iteration of the lilys, but we always slowed things down too much and added vocal harmonies. We were obsessed with vocal harmonies. They all sound pitchy to me now.

Mozzarella i Fieri (Sufjan Grafton), Thursday, 15 November 2012 21:16 (seven years ago) link

wrote this song, http://soundcloud.com/a-guy-called-fieri/thawingoutmp3 , to purposely rip off the lilys but it sounds more like the lucksmiths. I also wrote a vocal melody that mimics the guitar melody. I probably shouldn't have done that.

Mozzarella i Fieri (Sufjan Grafton), Thursday, 15 November 2012 21:18 (seven years ago) link

don't know the lilys, not a huge jangle fan but i bought this lucksmiths used CD once and it really hit a nerve w/me

ums (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Thursday, 15 November 2012 21:20 (seven years ago) link

every lilys album sounds different. eccsame is probably the only one where they sound shoegaze, I think. I like the fingerpicking songs above, ilxors!

Mozzarella i Fieri (Sufjan Grafton), Thursday, 15 November 2012 21:26 (seven years ago) link

thx :)

ums (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Thursday, 15 November 2012 21:28 (seven years ago) link

Those songs are kinda decent if basic. The melodies are impressively direct and hooky for a high school band. The vocalist (dunno if that is you, Sufjan Grafton, or some other guy) is really great. Gets the words out good, no straining.

Eyeball Kicks, Thursday, 15 November 2012 21:41 (seven years ago) link

Thanks, Eyeball Kicks. We all sang. The smoother vocalist is Mark. If you want to pinpoint more clearly what a combination of Sufjan Stevens and Sue Grafton sounds like, you need not look further than "Mannequin Awakes" (http://soundcloud.com/a-guy-called-fieri/mannequinawakesmp3). It confirms that I was one sad, sappy asshole in high school. I also pronounce words in the song like Jesse Pinkman of Breaking Bad.

Mozzarella i Fieri (Sufjan Grafton), Thursday, 15 November 2012 21:54 (seven years ago) link

sh@kedown, you ever try open D tuning? (Just change the G to F#). Also, do you build songs by ear and messing around with finger patterns? Or do you know the chords for tunings other than standard? I'm curious about your process.

Mozzarella i Fieri (Sufjan Grafton), Thursday, 15 November 2012 23:27 (seven years ago) link

Merdeyeux, that drone song is awesome. I kind of like the weird, if low production value, recording.

yep i was doing a lot of stuff in open D before, there's a couple upthread in open d...now i've been doing more D modal just because i'm reading this book about UK folk and bert jansch and davey graham and them used it a lot and i like the spooky "not quite minor not quite major" feel of it

as far as non-standard tunings go, i'm totally in the dark, i just put my fingers in places until it sounds good and figure out picking patterns and build out from that....

i also mess w/open C a bit, which is what fahey and the takoma guys used a lot, really cool, but the lowest string is the C below drop D so it can get pretty floppy and my one guitar (the worse one) can't really handle it without buzzing

ums (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Thursday, 15 November 2012 23:40 (seven years ago) link

Hey Sufjan, in that Mannequin Awakes song the acoustic guitar is kinda like the way I play acoustic guitar - it needs a ton of EQ to stop the beer being shook off the table. But again, a lovely, lovely voice. Wish I could make it sound as easy as that.

Eyeball Kicks, Friday, 16 November 2012 00:22 (seven years ago) link

haha. I do love to play like that, like Neil Young plays in sections of 'On The Way Home' on Massey Hall. Thanks again for listening and for the comments. Maybe you and I can have a crossroads-esque guitar battle someday where we just play chords REALLY HARD on acoustic guitars.

Mozzarella i Fieri (Sufjan Grafton), Friday, 16 November 2012 01:03 (seven years ago) link

sh@kedown, I have not messed with open C. I was recently given a Fahey record that I'm obsessed with, though. I may have to try it out. I was obsessed with open D for a while. I think our fingerpicked songwriting processes are similar. It really is a lot of fun. I think the reason I stay away from 'DADGAD' is that people pronounce it like a word instead of saying 'modal D'. I grew up with a lot of Dan Aykroyd sound-alikes who talked about how 'mark kozelek plays in DADGAD' every time I wanted to jam.

Mozzarella i Fieri (Sufjan Grafton), Friday, 16 November 2012 01:13 (seven years ago) link

If you like fahey check out open c, everything you play will sound kinda like fahey

i posted this a while back, a song i wrote and then recorded with a drony ebow arrangement: http://soundcloud.com/scarequotes-1/burning-life
before i hit on that arrangement i had played around with a bunch of other arrangements. i was playing music with my wife and our friend ben and i sprung the song on them and we recorded it on 4-track. then when i mixed it down it turned out the 4-track had crapped out in the middle of the song. so i tried to fill in the gaps with parts i recorded at home. i liked the way it turned out, i dig the patchwork sound, but ben and sarah weren't happy with their performances (they really only had a few minutes to learn it) so i didn't put it online ... UNTIL NOW

The drum machine (especially the snare and shaker) is drowning out the rest of the instruments, and needs to be mixed lower in volume so the rest of the track can breathe.

trayce war (electricsound), Saturday, 12 January 2013 10:22 (six years ago) link

I clipped one of these cheap clip-on contact mics

http://www.dolphinmusic.co.uk/shop_image/product/4351-korg-cm100-contact-mic-for-tuners-large.jpg

onto a sabian china cymbal on a carpeted floor, with the mic sort of squished between the cymbal and the floor. I ran it through some compression + distortion but didn't do any knob tweaking during; the sounds you hear are just my doing different things to the cymbal. The rapid-fire engine sound is just me twitching my hand near the mic/pressing the cymbal lightly into the carpet. I ran it through my bass amp and propped up my Zoom H4n so it was right in front of the subwoofer.

I just downloaded most of your tracks. I dig them. They're just weird enough to be interesting.

Story of my life! Thanks though Dan, appreciate it.

I try to straddle a line between my stream-of-conciousness indulgence and something which could hopefully work on the dancefloor. It’s hard to talk about your own music without sounding pretentious isn’t it?

Chewshabadoo, Saturday, 16 February 2013 15:24 (six years ago) link

I feel like I can relate to it. I'm attracted to certain kinds of music that not only sound like I like it, but sound like something I would want to do. A few of your tracks have that vibe for me.

dan selzer, Saturday, 16 February 2013 17:01 (six years ago) link

I stayed 3 months in an uninsulated cabin (ala Boniver) recording house music with my buddy. I'm proud of this track but I have no idea if anyone would actually dance to it. At the very least, if you give it a listen, I thank you.

Not sure if I posted this before, but here's a 4-track EP I made a little while back. Thoughts always appreciated.

Captain Ahab, your track is excellent.

And a piece of spoken word / sound art I made.

dog latin, Sunday, 17 February 2013 22:43 (six years ago) link

It's not one of my tracks, but I took on a recording project for a local metal band we have played a few gigs with that didn't have a demo. It was a chance to record and mix some stuff that I had never done before, including a huge double kick kit and a band tuned down to I think Bb.

You guys like the electronic music more on this side of ILXor, but you might find this interesting. I don't think the production turned out too bad for being recorded in a living room in suburbia with a couple mattresses against the windows to keep the Romanian neighbors from calling the cops.

lots of cool stuff everyone

earlnash, that link just sends me to my own page so i couldn't listen

here's a new thing i wrote, this is about right when i got the structure nailed down so it's kind of halting performancewise, i'll need to play it a lot better than this...but overall i think it's pretty good. more folk/fingerstyle instrumental stuff recorded on my phone

'glown' with the king (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Monday, 18 February 2013 20:26 (six years ago) link

Dog Latin, that first track sounds similar to the 'Bicycle Rider' motif from Heroes and Villians.

Chewshabadoo, Monday, 18 February 2013 23:42 (six years ago) link

Er, and that would be why it is called Bicycle Dub. Silly me!

Chewshabadoo, Monday, 18 February 2013 23:43 (six years ago) link

Anyway, I like it.

Chewshabadoo, Monday, 18 February 2013 23:43 (six years ago) link

Thanks Chewshabadoo, yeah it's Bicycle Rider of course!

Dick Townwolves (Captain Ahab), Wednesday, 20 February 2013 03:06 (six years ago) link

been starting to go through the gear i've been accumulating over the last while and made a couple of demo tracks using nothing but the titular synth

https://soundcloud.com/constantlightduo/sets/putting-the-gear-through-its

not especially amazing tunes but these were fun to do

flaccid archives (electricsound), Wednesday, 20 February 2013 03:19 (six years ago) link

There's a really fun album from Andy Meecham of Chicken Lips called Monophonic Volume 1 where each track is completely comprised of a particular synthesizer.

dan selzer, Wednesday, 20 February 2013 05:42 (six years ago) link

ha cool, the clips sounds really nice. making percussion sounds on synths is really satisfying

flaccid archives (electricsound), Wednesday, 20 February 2013 05:47 (six years ago) link

thanks Captain Ahab.

Should have some actual finished "proper" music up here quite soon, as opposed to these little sketches I've been posting up since time began.

dog latin, Wednesday, 20 February 2013 10:12 (six years ago) link

dog latin, how long have you been making music?

Dick Townwolves (Captain Ahab), Wednesday, 20 February 2013 18:02 (six years ago) link

Captain Ahab - I've been doing things here and there with breaks in between since I was about 17. I used to make a lot of tunes with DOS trackers under the name Autofire from about 1999-2004. Then I took a bit of a break from writing any music for a couple of years. Rediscovered the guitar and started playing around with Reason and stuff circa 2006. Recorded a sort of weird bedroom pop album during a bout of redundancy in 2007 under the name Mighty Sandy Heath Transmitters. I'm now in a band called Disco Zhivago, been jamming around together for about a year and a half or so but we've just played our first couple of gigs and are about to get a two-track single together.

ok so i need some advice about what to do with this:

https://soundcloud.com/scarequotes-1/ethel-merman

i accidentally came up with a loop i really like and did some stuff to it. then i added a subtle organ part. but i can't decide if it's done now or not. i feel like maybe it needs something else but nothing i try works. i tried recording guitar on it but it pushed it too far into a stereotypical psychedelic thing. but also i know i have a tendency to overstuff songs and record more tracks than i need to, so maybe it's ok as is and i just need to move on?

congratulations (n/a), Saturday, 2 March 2013 02:09 (six years ago) link

now i don't know about the organ or the effects on the loop either. maybe i should just start over from the loop.

congratulations (n/a), Saturday, 2 March 2013 02:19 (six years ago) link

This is a great 'middle of side 2' album track.
