3. Rock: Poltergeist by artneuro

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 04:22:02 -0500

There I was making good progress on my 2017 collection of songs and I got distracted by this other project. Sometimes that's the way the muse goes. I was stuck with what to do with the last 2 tracks as it was so it was a welcome distraction, but funnily enough I learned a few new tricks doing the side project and came back to these last 2 tracks with extra inspiration.
So here's one of them.

This is a sad song without trying to be bluesy. It's about a ghost that falls love with the living. This year's song has a strange way of being about downer topics but I promise it's not about me. I'm fine, I'm doing well!



4. Folk: Explorers by Calchas

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 04:22:02 -0500

No roaring electric guitars, rumbling keyboards, plodding bass or thumping drums herein.

Just Calchas... unplugged... live at the CYBER CAFE... singing for coffee...

Who knew?

5. Folk: Tunnel Vision by Calchas

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 04:22:02 -0500

Still waiting for my right hand to heal up. Hence I'll be posting oldies for awhile longer... Good news is that they'll all be new to this site. (image)

This one is a mostly acoustic piece, originally recorded back in May of 2008, and newly remixed and remastered for icompositions.

The content is pretty self-explanatory. (See the lyrics...)

Hope you enjoy it.

Be well all!



6. Folk: Drifting Today... ( folk rockish ) by Dadai

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 04:22:02 -0500

Musical musings from autumn 2008. An acoustic guitar and vocal tune with a free and easy melody. A song of release and freedom for me of sorts... dropping the heavy load, as it were.

Beautiful vocal harmony accompaniment by Roxylee

Hope you enjoy it.

Recorded with Zoom H2 recorder, Washburn D-10S guitar, MacBook 2.4

Well, I'm really running out of materials lately and therefore decided to share this song one last time. I recall we did this in quite a hurry that Christmas but ended up to be one of my favourite compositions. This is a new remix with added instrumentation. Thanks for stopping by.

An early Merry Christmas to you all.

11. Punk: Skulk by sammydix

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 04:22:02 -0500

Kind of a Surf-y, garage-y, punk thing.
This is a hybrid mix with BJS and a Reaper forum buddy of mine on lead guitars.
Morgon (from Reaper)first lead.
BigJimSlade: that catchy, octave riff in the chorus and the lead out at the end.
I play everything else (except the drums, of course).

Hope you enjoy



14. Jazz: Black napkins by w1av

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 04:22:02 -0500

Here is another ZAPPA tune I did today. It snowed all day so I stayed in and worked on music. This is an older instrumental from 1975. I played electric piano, piano, fretless bass and some MIDI horns. Guitar was Gibson SG Junior with bridge P90. I got all backing tracks done around dinner time. All that was left was the lead guitar so I thought I'd just practice it today and record tomorrow. So i used one of those amp modeling plug-ins for my DAW. I tweaked it and recorded a track. It actually sounded so good I decided to keep the track.



15. Electronica: Thermal Runway by amp

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 04:22:02 -0500

When eido offered a chip tune challenge, I was hoping, 'please be fake-bit'! Fake-bit would just mean it could be music with 8-bit sounds but have realistic sounding instruments. The example, however, was 8-bit which meant I would try to do something legit sounding.

I had a few thoughts going into it; firstly, that I would download 8-bit sounds to be used as instruments in Fruity Loops, or that I could do something more proper and make a chip synth midi using a 20+ year old computer to go for the Sega Mega Drive / Genesis sound... You following? (image) The old computers interface would have probably been hard to work with for how ridiculous I wanted the track to be, which also nixed my idea of using the Commodore 64, as I don't have a floppy disk drive and would lose all my work.

I landed on FamiTracker on a trashed laptop. I was going to use it to make loops and stitch them together using another program but it lent itself quite well to being able to make the whole track the way it is! Which also means this can be played back on a real Nintendo.

The baseline to the composition was done on a thrifted acoustic guitar, strung as left-handed, and drop-tuned one whole step. I lost my tone I made in FamiTracker as I failed to save getting it all set up and in all the rework, I forgot my composition, so back to the guitar!

Once I had everything all et up that I could actually program in the compositions, I'd forget more as I'd have to go out and do things like pay car insurance or be fined or something dumb like that. Overall, this tune goes pretty hard and I wanted it to also sound familiarly game-y at the same time.

I think I got it alright and am really glad now that I had the nudge toward relearning FamiTracker as I had been looking for a reason to get around to it. If you enjoyed this, you may like My First FamiTracker Track I made using this too!

I liked the challenge as it put me off track from other projects, which is cool to shift gears and practice some fundamentals such as restricting oneself to 4 tracks as this has. If you are interested in reading more about the challenge of constraints, check out eido's blog discussing this topic here: Embracing constraint

As always, thank you for listening and being an interactive part of this community!

21. Metal: Metal Modulation by DJShadowkat

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 04:22:02 -0500

This is dedicated to my father-in-law who suddenly passed away on Wednesday.

He was a great father to LadyKat, an amazing father-in-law to me, he was a friend to all and absolutely the mellowest person I have ever met.

He was a rocker and supported my music as well, so I made this track on my iPad for him.

It's been pretty hard to sleep to be honest. This has been very difficult for the family and myself.

I hope you found the peace you deserve, zen man... This one's for you.


Peace to you all,


DJShadowkat

25. Pop: Orbus by FreeEarCandy

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 04:22:02 -0500

One of my personal favorite tracks from the FreeEarCandy 2016 Collection. Orbus (i.e. Orphan) is dedicated to The Sacred Heart Children's Home of Coopersburg Pa. No longer standing, it once provided shelter and food for hundred's of needy children up until around the early 80's. The entire structure was demolished around 2 years ago and is/has being/been replaced with condo's. I'd like to say this is because of a shortage of orphans but the fact is a shortage of staff and the move towards foster care sealed its fate. Established in the late 1800's, the orphanage served as home and school for many who would have otherwise been on their own in a very unforgiving world. I'll call this Pop-I guess.

30. Electronica: [BrighterDays] Letting go by eido

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 04:22:02 -0500

We are emotional beings, much as we might sometimes like to think of ourselves as supremely rational. We cling to things because we love them (or because we hate them), but there comes a point when that clinging turns sour, and we have no choice but to let go or live in the past forever...

Demo of track 9 from my new album 'Brighter Days'. Get the full album free at https://eido.bandcamp.com/album/brighter-days!

==

This is the first track that was ever written for the Dark Days project, way back in 1998 or 1999. (I wrote it in my first year at university but I can't remember which side of Christmas it was, hence the vague date.)

At the time I was still pretty sore from a series of events which I proceeded to fictionalise and (over-)dramatise into the storyline for Dark Days, so the angst was fresh and vital when I sat down with my guitar and started mashing away with what I then referred to as 'interesting chords' (as distinct from 'regular' power chords, the staple of every metal guitarist). In many ways this music has been a part of my life ever since - for almost 20 years now.

In terms of the original storyline, you might recall that, after his failed attempt to cut himself off from everyone and everything, our brave(?) hero(?!) reaches out to his friends in an attempt to reconnect. Sadly, it turns out they weren't all that interested. Oops. Reminds me a little of the saying that goes something like 'You'll worry less about what other people think of you when you realise how seldom they do.'

Perhaps needless to say, I have a different perspective on the whole business with the benefit of two decades' distance. While I'm not going to pretend I live in perfect peace and harmony all day long, I'm at least somewhat better at remembering not to keep hanging on to the hot coal that's roasting my flesh. In many ways, 'letting go' summarises the whole experience of moving from those dark days into brighter ones - for years I clung so tightly to the whole thing that I couldn't even make the music because I felt I wouldn't do it justice, then later I tried to bury it and forget all about it, but pushing it away didn't work any better than clinging too tightly.

My hope is that, through this project, I can accept and honour this whole experience, and finally let it go.

41. Music Videos: "Menace to Sobriety" by BatoBeats

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 04:22:02 -0500

Happy Sunday! My name is Gerry aka BatoBeats and this a song and video project I have been working on. The music is an original by me done in Studio One Pro. What I am asking for is How my vocals sound as far as clarity and/or if it sits in the mix. Also, this is my first time playing bass guitar so I was hoping I can get some feedback from that. It was recorded D.I. with an Amp Plug-in. I have mixed synth bass before but an electric bass is brand new to me. I couldn't find a bassist for $80 so I bought an $80 bass. lol. Thanks for listening!
