Good call on the chorus in Choices, Choices. @n24 pointed out the piano was causing a bit of a rhythmic snarl up there, and I'm guessing that your discomfort with the vocals may be related to that - I'm planning to sort that out by simplifying the chords a little, and maybe rerecord the vocals in non-whispery-late-night-don't-wake-the-children mode. Thanks for the comment - I really love it when people have suggestions, I think it can really help my songs so I'm really grateful.
Glad you liked! By chorus you mean the high regsiter Vox part?
Im down to collab before 50/90 if you wanna. Let me know if you wanna connect further and chat on Zoom some? Curious to learn about your music path and experience
thanks so much for the comments! I think you found me out re:Skinny Puppy et al. I used to roam aimlessly in the forest listening to Mind T.P.I. on a cassette walkman. I highly recommend that to anyone.
Thanks for listening and your kind comments on 1971 Census. I am also a New Order fan and over the last year I’ve watched a lot of their recent and older concerts on YouTube. Never really thought of my music being similar and take it as a high compliment!
RE: Pitch Correction. I am happy to know I probably don't need this, and I'm going to turn it off. Now, I just need to figure out what keys, besides C and G I can sing in, and be okay? Thanks again for your helpful feedback!
Fateful Findings is my favorite, but all his films are worth a watch. They are loaded with WTF moments that still get me after multiple viewings. I could watch this actress staring straight into the camera and trying to hold it together at 1:40 all day https://youtu.be/YXbG7nMECSg
Thanks for the comments, I really need to start forcing myself to let the VOX be louder.
Hey man, I was working on a thing with @vadellgabriel that originally started as something for the fake genre #shiphop, (hip hop sea shantys) but never really became that. He's got 1:30 of a nice new jack style beat with a twist of p-funk and I think I can comp together a sing-rap version of my lyrics.
Any chance you would be interested in taking the parts and pulling it together into a complete piece?
you should have seen me playing that keyboard solo on tismMON Bunz..I'm sure I looked insane...bouncing around while trying to keep my hands on the keyboard...didn't quantize shiot...lol..it's a raw one take that I kept for the funz
Because your tunes are so complete and well produced, Im not sure what to ask for or send you. Git us started with something? :)
Also, check out my triphop wanna be new tune i posted. 😂. Gimme some pointers? 😂
YES!! My Wesley Willis bredren. The easter egg was a bit obscure, so I edited the liner notes in case you missed it. Sounds like we're on a similar wavelength. I love it! Please shoot me an email at some point so we can keep making music after FAWM.
I like Splice! If I were into samples, I'd definitely subscribe again. Companies like SoundCloud and Splice have DOUBLED their rates in the last short while. I'm not sure if server costs have gone up or what. But, these types of companies are charging an awful lot these days.
Thank you for your comment on "God is the Bigger Elvis." After I bounced it and played it back, I thought, "Oh, no, that Kick is way too loud." And then I thought about how it really had something to say and left it that way. :)
Ah, the second-tier seminar experience!
We will send one of our luxurious limousine helicopters to fetch you at your home, you will be given a five room suite in our Sub-Level Three guest facilities for the week, and you will have unlimited access to the casino and the all-day hot buffet tables down on Sub-Level Four.
You're welcome for the bass thing.
I always find it's good to embrace the rest of the sounds in a nice warm bass hug.
That's the kind of insider tip I give during my intensive week-long seminar entitled "Making Music The Fuzzy Sound Labs Way". Other topics include; "How To Prepare A Piano", "The Value of Terrorizing Your Audience With Sonic Feedback", and "Ambient Music - Is It Only For Nerds?".
I usually charge $7000 dollars per person for the seminar, but for you?
Thanks for the tip about #fawmtronica , I was wondering about that tag. Will def add it to my tracks! Last fawm I wasn't too active on the site, so I'm really grateful this time around that I get to interact with the community more and that I'm taking more time to listen to other people's work. It's been a great experience so far and you and the other creators in this niche have given me a lot of inspiration.
Thanks for dropping that comment on Minsk. I’m really excited to spit over top of your song, unfortunately it requires a bit more breath control than the goofy shit I’m putting out. Still under the weather here.
" You sir are the king of the headphone mix."
Wow, thanks, this means a lot to me!
Putting together a quality headphone mix is actually the part of the music-making process that takes the most time. Usually far longer than the actual recording.
One of my absolute mixing rules - the bass always goes on the outside, near the edges.
Just stopping by to say sorry if I seem to be stealing all the thunder in Things Obscured. I wish there was more comment love about the sensational track you created there. Thank you so much for all the comment love and encouragement too. Really appreciated. Hugs.
Thank you for your very kind comments! I checked out some of your collabs the other day. I'm really digging them and they inspired me to do something more focused on hip hop. And wow, you guys have got a lot of tracks so far. Keep up the great work! 😀
Thank you for you kind words and comments about This Bloody Love. I always enjoy combining 'normal' musical sounds (like the electric piano) with clearly synthesized sounds. And FAWM is really pushing me to just get the lyrics down without worrying and messing around too much. When I am not covered in sleeping cats I'll take a listen to your songs. Cheers!
I'm wondering about the 3D or the Twister. The Midi Fighter looks like it could solve one of my problems with production. Coming up with more original MIDI notes, that I can, of course, manipulate in my DAW (as you do). Thoughts on either of those pieces of gear, or maybe something similar?
Travis - you and Adam are a dynamic duo of massive talent. Y'all remind me of my cousin and me when we were literally recording something everyday. Well, he would say that I was literally recording music everyday. Nonetheless it is a pleasure to listen to your work and be amazed and learning from your craft. By the way - the Jelly Factory should be open for business this evening before I take off for Norfolk later on tonight.
Ha! I knew that must have been needle noise. I think if it were just distortion on the kick it would have been too harsh and annoying. But there's something about that needle static sound that is familar and sizzly without getting in the way. Thanks for nerding out on how you pulled off. It's a dope effect and it worked perfectly.
DANG!!! I came here to see what you had cooking before I go cook dinner, and this man already got FOUR songs up! I'm afraid to look at @nahlej381's page!
Gots lots to listen to at work 2moro! March on, dude!
