3. Rock: Bluebird (Paul McCartney and Wings Cover) by markeaux

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 13:15:17 -0400

August 9th 1973 Paul and Linda McCartney, Denny Laine and his wife and Geoff Emerick arrived in Lagos Nigeria to record “Band On The Run”. Aside from the challenges presented by the primitive studio, various incidents plagued Wings' Lagos stay. While out walking one night against advice, Paul and Linda were robbed at knifepoint. The assailants made away with all of their valuables and even stole a bag containing Linda’s cameras along with a notebook of handwritten lyrics and songs, and all the cassettes containing demos for the songs to be recorded. Paul had to remember the songs after losing those demos. The demos were never recovered but it’s fun to think about where they ended up. This Track is a cover of one of the songs on those lost Demo tapes.
Chuck Rissmiller performed the Guitar, bass and midi instruments and I did the drums, percussion, and Vocals…Thanks for listening..



4. Rock: Money Gods by AlHughson

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 13:15:17 -0400

I recorded this circa 2007 with Niav a very singular talent. I can't post the lyrics as technically Niav owns them and although I recorded the music I did not write the lyric

10. Alternative: Never Mind by Xolv

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 13:15:17 -0400

An instrumental featuring guitars, percussion and piano.

It took its direction unexpectedly and not planned. The change was made by trying the new coffee shop percussion set in Logic Pro X 10.4. Many of us may have had these kind of sounds, but not necessarily made them into a set with very nice small room acoustic. Hope it can be checked out. I may make another version close to the first intention in Santana land, or maybe someone wants to collab on vocals.

12. Jazz: A Diplomat's Lament by thenownows

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 13:15:17 -0400

A little instrumental piece for a jazzy quartet (tenor sax, trombone, piano, and percussion) inspired by that most opaque yet essential art: diplomacy. Those who keep the warring tribes coming back to the table - if only to glare each other down - have chosen a most thankless and onerous vocation. Enjoy!

14. Classical: The seven gates of Eidolon by w1av

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 13:15:17 -0400

Here is my first attempt at writing, playing and recording a "symphonic" piece of music. This tune is a "suite" of 7 different pieces each based on each of the 7 modes of the harmonic major scale. This is new territory for me. I've been doing stuff using modes of regular major scale and harmonic minor but these other scales are interesting. And unpronounceable. We start off with the first section in E double harmonic major.....next morphing into F# Lydian #2 #6......then G UltraPhrygian.....and it gets progressively stranger as we approach Db Locrian bb3 bb7...yes don't ask me to explain the double flats!!!!! I've gotten lost in some of the theory in this. You can really manipulate the major scale for some decent cinematic effect.
I am no expert on classical composition. Most of my ideas came from listening to Scriabin, Ravel, and old PC computer games (Heretic, Hexen etc) So if there are any people out there who could give a constructive critique that would help me. The song is quite LONG, 10 min 15 seconds. I kept the instruments at a manageable 5 or 6.....using mainly strings, piano, acoustic bass, flute, oboe, piccolo, perc.....Yeah its all MIDI but I played each individual part! NO LOOPS!!!!!



15. R&B: The Drift... (tenor sax/guitar improv) by Dadai

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 13:15:17 -0400

Just a drift into the night... Original demo 2012 posted on a different site. The 2018 update here at iComp. Rearranged composition - almost a new song. A mellow, moonlight instrumental jam with tenor sax, Les Paul guitar, with new additions of bass and drums. Hope you enjoy The Drift...



16. Jazz: quad bass collaboration by EmmaPeel

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 13:15:17 -0400

quad bass avec patrick lafayette and emma peel --

i just could not stop my feet, body and voice from getting in on this. the way others have passion for food, sports and other things, mine is great jazz and french perfume. this tune is a blend of jazz and perfume for me. straight from france. thank you patrick! what an honor for me!

the instrumentation were all on the part of patrick's ensemble of two double basses, piano and drums. patrick also mixes this blend for us, as y'all are already aware i am technically challenged beyond belief!

Je ne pouvais pas m'arreter mes pieds, corps et voix. autres ont de la passion pour la nourriture, les sports et d'autres choses -- le mien est le grand jazz et le parfum francais. cette melodie est un melange de jazz et de parfum pour moi. directement de france. merci patrick! quel honneur pour moi!

l'instrumentation etait de la part de Patrick -- l'ensemble contient deux contrebasses , piano et batterie.



17. Blues: What I Know by Gadzooks

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 13:15:17 -0400

I don't do a whole lot of music these days because my attention has been on my career.
I do get together at least 2 times a month and jam with the Hounds. A 3 piece basement band that loves to make things up on the spot. This is completely live... and the words and singing were made up on the spot......

20. World: Break Into My Heart (Postcard To The Maker) by Larzman2

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 13:15:17 -0400

Another meaningful collab for me. Scott's piano instrumental "Ascension Prelude" and it's emotional depth hooked me good.
I don't practice a traditional religious belief but do find myself sometimes talking to someone or some invisible... out there.

23. Metal: Aurora II: Bound to the Throne by herrsolera

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 13:15:17 -0400

This piece is a variation on the melody and theme of “A Quiet Coronation,” without the autobiographical inspiration. I thought about the trials that kings and queens of the past must have endured as they rose to power – the shedding of idealism, the acceptance of reality, the sudden realization that the world is not as they thought. The melodies follow this pattern – eagerness followed by doubt, resignation, but then an optimistic twist.

This song is right in what I’d consider my symphonic metal sweet spot, but I toyed with a few new tricks in my compositional arsenal, namely black-metal inspired blast beats, which I had never done before. I credit the Scottish folk metal band Saor for this inclination and for the song’s general form and texture.

Given the overall theme and the momentum I built up while composing, I entered the realm of extended play. The song’s genre and length will certainly test most listeners’ patience and attention span. I hope I kept it varied enough to warrant a full spin. Enjoy!

25. Jazz: o amor em paiz -- once i loved by EmmaPeel

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 13:15:17 -0400

hello all! just me again --

Sir Grahame of mremusic in BC and Lady Emma in old el paso at it this week with our first collaboration.

this is a fine bossa nova out of brazil from the mind and soul of an incredible man -- antonio carlos jobim as composer. the lyrics were created by vinicius de moraes. this song is sung in their brazilian portuguese as "o amor em paiz," which translate to english as "(the) love in peace." it is sung as "once i loved," in english, with those lyrics having been penned by ray gilbert.

lest we forget -- lest yours truly forgets -- yes, it was i on vocals, but you've already guessed that. the hard part was all done by grahame -- way, way, way up north of me. i'm on one border of the US, nearly OUT of the US and he's on the other side, almost IN the US. he did ALL of the following:

percussion, drums, bass, guitar and flügelhorn, production and mixing. give that man a hand, please.

it has been lovely to work in portuguese again, and i hope we have many more chances. my soul will forever be linked to bossa nova, and to tom jobim above all else in that realm. por favor aproveite!



26. Jazz: nestor burma theme tribute -- collaboration by EmmaPeel

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 13:15:17 -0400

well what do you know? c'est moi, encore --

this time it's with our wonderful frenchi -- patrick lafayette.

he's permitted me to sing along with a favorite show and theme that we both share, spanning both sides of the atlantic. my goodness, what fun!

i tried to stifle the highs, as i was recording at 4a when i'm up and my upstairs neighbors are not. (my decibels increase uncontrollably when this coloratura is set free).

this was our first true french connection, as the last one was scat-only and didn't really show my appreciation for our beautiful mother tongue, french. how lovely that he even provided the mixing. i DO hope to get a chance to work with this bon garcon again!

patrick lafayette, instrumentals
emma peel, vocals
karine michel, lyrics/music
klou & petit eleve, lyrics research; my heartfelt thanks to each of them.

ain't this fun? arre el paso! (that means giddyup, partner!) whoowhee!!!!!!!!!!

29. Pop: Butterfly 2 by ChristianElder

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 13:15:17 -0400

This track was written about my teenage daughter. She, like her elder sister is heavily into her dance competitions but unfortunately her body has been letting her down over the past 18 months because of puberty and all.

She’s been suffering from a hip complaint which makes her almost lame. She’s ended up in hospital a couple of times the poor thing. She has the added pressure of a pretty older sister that she’s trying to emulate and like me she can be negative at times.

The title was inspired by the same picture that inspired the Zebra track which I uploaded a couple of years ago.. It’s also a symbol that caterpillars grow into beautiful butterflies in the end.

I hope you enjoy it.

31. New Age: Lady Godiva by pieresis

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 13:15:17 -0400

Lady Godiva” Pieresis – Aprile 2018 Carissimi Amici Camelottiani con “Lady Godiva” siamo già al 5° album di questo 2018. Una “Lady” che si aggiunge alle altre trattate in passato, tra quelle inventate da me come le 4 “Miss Dragon” ed altre altrettanto leggendarie come “Lady Loathly”, “The White Lady” o “The Lady of the Lake”. Anche in questo caso è presente un argomento trattato in tante storie e leggende del passato (ad esempio Robin Hood), un argomento molto attuale direi: le tasse! In questi anni ne ho trovate davvero tante di storie e leggende con temi attuali e questa è una di quelle. Lady Godiva, o Godgifu (990 – 10 settembre 1067), fu una nobildonna anglosassone, moglie del conte Leofrico di Coventry (Inghilterra). Lady Godiva di Jules Joseph Lefebvre. Secondo la leggenda, cavalcò nuda per le vie di Coventry per ottenere la soppressione di un ulteriore tributo imposto da suo marito ai propri sudditi. Da Wikipedia, secondo la tradizione popolare: “La bella Lady Godiva prese le parti della popolazione di Coventry, che stava soffrendo per le tasse oppressive imposte da suo marito. Lady Godiva gli chiese più volte di toglierle, ma il marito rifiutò sempre. Stanco delle sue suppliche, le disse che avrebbe dato ascolto alla sua richiesta solo se avesse cavalcato nuda nelle vie della città. Lady Godiva lo prese alla lettera e, dopo la pubblicazione del proclama dove si raccomandava a tutte le persone di mantenere chiuse porte e finestre, cavalcò a Coventry, coperta soltanto dai suoi lunghi capelli. Soltanto una persona nella città, un sarto poi conosciuto come Peeping Tom, disobbedì al proclama. Nella storia, Tom fece un foro in una persiana per poter vedere il passaggio di Godiva e rimase cieco. Alla fine, il marito di Godiva mantenne la sua parola e abolì le tasse onerose.” Godiva, Countess of Mercia ( / ɡ ə ˈ d aɪ v ə /; died between 1066 and 1086), in Old English Godgifu, was an English noblewoman who, according to a legend dating at least to the 13th century, rode naked – covered only in her long hair – through the streets of Coventry to gain a remission of the oppressive taxation that her husband imposed on his tenants. The name "Peeping Tom" for a voyeur originates from later versions of this legend in which a man named Thomas watched her ride and was struck blind or dead. Una versione ancora più antica della leggenda racconta che Godiva attraversò il mercato di Coventry da un'estremità all'altra, mentre la gente era riunita, scortata solo da due cavalieri. Questa versione è fornita nella Flores Historiarum da Roger di Wendover, un collezionista di aneddoti (morto nel 1236). La storia successiva, quella con il relativo episodio che riguarda Peeping Tom, comparve per la prima volta nelle cronache attorno al XVII secolo. A quel tempo, i penitenti erano soliti fare una processione pubblica soltanto con un piccolo indumento bianco simile a una mutanda, che era certamente considerato biancheria intima. Quindi, alcuni studiosi ipotizzano che Godiva abbia realmente attraversato la città, come una penitente. La storia di Godiva passò poi nel folklor[...]

33. Latin: besame mucho collaboration by EmmaPeel

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 13:15:17 -0400

besame mucho

writer/composer: consuelo velazquez de mexico
uncle harry hill: violin
sam pratt: guitar
peter gilmour: recording on grahame's end.
grahame edwards: melodeon & bass. yes, both.
emma peel: vocals. it's pathetic, isn't it? that's all i ever do.
angie kuske, kent england: mixing on my end. i am greatful as anything for her loving hand in my ventures.

i am here on the border of mexico, but one language i rarely sing in is spanish. it's my ear for rhythm, and we all have rhythms we like and dislike. unless a song is totally overwhelming to my senses, it is rare you will hear me do spanish. a neighbor lady asked yesterday if i could possibly do this tune. only too happily! thanking grahame for his delightfully accomodative response in allowing me to join this tremendous gypsy sound.

likewise, the drama of the music -- i find the bolero genre of spanish songs to be my most intensely satisfying to listen to and perform.

we hope you will enjoy.

37. New Age: The Old Code by pieresis

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 13:15:17 -0400

“The Old Code” 2° Album by Pieresis 2018 (Marzo) L’Antico Codice dei Cavalieri: mancava il “Codice” dei Cavalieri nei mei album dedicati a Camelot, troppo importante! Specie in questo periodo storico in cui potrebbe esserci una svolta storica nella politica non solo italiana ma nel mondo! Perché c’è voglia di onestà, di moralità! C’è voglia di giustizia sociale! Quindi come per tanti altri miei album dedicati a Camelot anche in questo caso c’è un “messaggio” che riguarda l’attualità. I Cavalieri di Re Artù seguivano un loro Codice e non esattamente quello ma qualcosa di simile servirebbe anche ai nostri politici! In questo ci sono molte similitudini col M5S: la grande novità della politica di sempre non solo italiana ma nel mondo! Un Movimento che si è dato delle regole e chi non le segue è fuori dal movimento, regole che portano i politici a servire il popolo e non a garantirsi poltrone e potere come accade ormai da decenni. Questo ha causato un inevitabile allontanamento del popolo dai politici e dalla politica! Politici che si sono arricchiti sempre più riducendo il popolo sempre più in povertà! Non è la prima volta che collego i Cavalieri di Artù ai nostri politici e come ho detto altre volte non si pretende dai nostri politici l’eroismo, che siano disposti a dare pure la loro vita per il popolo ma che siano almeno d’esempio per onestà e altruismo! C’è molto scetticismo sull’eventualità di un cambiamento così radicale della politica, la gente è talmente delusa da decenni di corruzione a tutti i livelli della politica e della società che appare come minimo utopistico un cambiamento in cui prevalga l’onestà e la giustizia sociale, ma quello che dico ormai da anni è che se non s’incomincia con una nuova mentalità della politica come quella del M5S che di fatto ha già modificato molte cose nel palazzo del governo, non si cambierà mai. Intanto come ho già detto fatti concreti già ci sono, come ad esempio diventa sempre più imbarazzante per le altre forze politiche non imitare i pentastellati che si tagliano gli stipendi o che rinunciano a privilegi e vitalizi e queste sono già realtà che portano a un minimo di ottimismo, certo sempre con una certa cautela ma portano già a crederci in qualche modo. Da Wikiquote: ...Dentro il cerchio della tavola, sotto la sacra spada, un cavaliere deve giurare di obbedire al codice che è senza fine, senza fine come la tavola, un anello legato all'onore. Un cavaliere è votato al coraggio, il suo cuore conosce solo la virtù, la sua spada difende gli inermi, la sua forza sostiene i deboli, le sue parole dicono solo la verità, la sua ira abbatte i malvagi. Il giusto non può morire, se un uomo ancora ricorda, le parole non sono dimenticate, se una voce le pronuncia chiare, il codice per sempre riluce, se un cuore lo conserva splendemente... (Bowen, Giuramento del paladino) Questo è il contenuto, all’in[...]



38. Metal: Tomb Of Ligeia by jarcieri

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 13:15:17 -0400

Song is not as Dark as the image suggests (Maybe). Pretty upbeat. I think one can dance to it on "Bandstand" if need be (Maybe). Hopefully hitting some dynamics.

A mix of Rock and Edgar Allens Poe's "Tomb of Ligeia" story with a nod to Down's "Bury Me In Smoke". Plus the added goodness of Bass and Wah!!!!!

49. Rock: Life Ain't Sposed To Be Fair by falconep

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 13:15:17 -0400

Marvel's "Avengers: Infinity Wars" opens this week

Why Spiderman? Probably the best example of a super hero that understood life is never fair. (And, I needed an excuse to use the Danny Elfman "Spiderman power chords" from the 1st Tobey Maguire movie as the break.)

Personal observation: Everyone eventually gets the memo; but too many don't understand. They want a perfect world without any hard-knocks lessons. Paradoxically, when you accept the truth, life is easier to maneuver through.

Example: In his book "Change of Seasons: A Memoir
by John Oates w/ Chris Epting" (of Daryl Hall and John Oates fame), describes how after 20 years of awards, acclaim, stardom and induction into the Hall of Fame, his accountants presented him with the fact that he was millions of dollars in debt. What he later realized was that it was the best thing that ever happened to him.

50. Latin: Betty's Bungalow (She's Our GG) by mre

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 13:15:17 -0400

“Look after each other!” ~ Beryl Edwards

This song, named after our first family house, is a tribute to my mum, Beryl (Betty, GG), who left us in December. It tells the story of her life in broad strokes and will be the soundtrack to her memorial slide show by my brother Geoff.
My mum was ever supportive of my efforts in music, buying me my first guitar, my first percussion (bongos) and transporting the school’s double bass so I could practise at home. The song backing suggests happy times on holiday in Hawaii and Mexico.
Photo by my dad, Roy.

mre plays: cowbell, clave, guitar, ‘ukulele, brushes, cabassa, shaker, bass, voice
