5. Other: Choose your drugs with care, my child ... by thenownows

Tue, 25 Jul 2017 07:13:38 -0400

This little modern fairy tale was inspired by a moving documentary I watched about young folks in Wales addicted to heroin. They were extremely sad figures who had lost their way and were relentlessly chasing the next fix. I've lost friends to various addictions over the years and it's a tragedy to watch someone fall into that all-too-human hellhole, but it was the thought that it could be the fate of my own boys one day, no matter how hard we, as parents, try to steer them away from such a fate, that really got to me. It's a dark little piece, but I hope you give it a listen. It's a terrifying job being a parent ...



6. Pop: Underwater Girl by BlancFroid

Tue, 25 Jul 2017 07:13:38 -0400

Minimal Wave creation of sorts.



7. Electronica: [BrighterDays] In the blink of an eye by eido

Tue, 25 Jul 2017 07:13:38 -0400

In a moment, everything can change. A whole world turned upside-down, in the blink of an eye...

Demo of track 2 from my forthcoming album 'Brighter Days'.


===

Well, it looks like this is really happening - track 1 wasn't a one-off. Maybe I'll get this album released before these songs reach their twentieth birthday...

I remember quite clearly sitting in a lecture during the first year of my mathematics degree - I think the topic was differential equations - dutifully writing down everything the lecturer was putting up on the board, and at the same time jotting down lyrics in the margin of my notepad (which back then was a physical thing made of paper, as opposed to a notepad computer). The guy sitting next to me, who could be quite uptight about this sort of thing, frowned disapprovingly, but then he wasn't a musician, so what did he know?

20. New Age: Before the Big Butterfly by Xolv

Tue, 25 Jul 2017 07:13:38 -0400

A down tempo instrumental.

"Butterfly" replaced "Bang", which I think may work better .
I was just testing the time reversal of some functions of harmonic modulation and melody liked the result.

23. Electronica: Open Circuit 3 by zincshed

Tue, 25 Jul 2017 07:13:38 -0400

My first Electronic track on iComposition. Over time I have moved away from using synths or drum machines. My last synth was sold 8 years ago and never replaced. This track is an entry in an indaba competition and uses patches and drumsets from my keyboards plus some real sounds that I have started collecting. It is really just a backing track.

31. Blues: Intangible, v3 by Char

Tue, 25 Jul 2017 07:13:38 -0400

What I did: I recorded a set of lyrics for an open collab.

What Bud did: He added a drum track, hand claps, bass, and two tracks of acoustic slide guitar – the only loops used were the one drum track and a vinyl scratch track. He triple tracked my voice with different eq’s and blended them together to get the sound you hear. Finally, he used overdrive, eq, and compression in mastering.
To me, it sounds as if I was singing in a smoky roadhouse.
I hope you like it and aren't sick of my song, yet.
Thank you, Bud.
(This is copied from the original post on MJ...)
I'll just post one more version, soon. I promise. (image)



32. Rock: 110 klassik rok by irok

Tue, 25 Jul 2017 07:13:38 -0400

110 BPM So I just messed around with my guitar, I made the tune way to long on my first upload and had to re-export, it is still long..
Hey it's rock. I did a solo, I'm not that good at building those but some impro and re-doing, I did fit it in at the end of the tune, I added a simple bass, the thing about my active fretless is, it sounds awesome but it's a lottery to find the right notes.. (image)
If anyone want to redo the bass, I'm ok with that, for now it just.. works.
Feel free to add whatever You want or just enjoy (image)



33. Classical: Dreams by dirigent

Tue, 25 Jul 2017 07:13:38 -0400

Dreams for String Orchestra Inspired by a poem of the American poet Amy Lowell (1874-1925) Amy Lowell (1874-1925), American Imagist poet, was a woman of great accomplishment. She was born in Brookline, Massachusetts, to a prominent family of high-achievers. Her environment was literary and sophisticated, and when she left private school at 17 to care for her elderly parents, she embarked on a program of self-education. Her poetic career began in 1902 when she saw Eleonora Duse, a famous actress, perform on stage. Overcome with Eleonora's beauty and talent, she wrote her first poem addressed to the actress. They met only a couple times and never developed a relationship, but Eleonora inspired many poems from Amy and triggered her career. Ada Russell, another actress, became the love of Amy's life. She met Ada in 1909 and they remained together until Amy's death in 1925. Amy wrote many, many poems about Ada. In the beginning, as with her previous poems about women, she wrote in such a way that only those who knew the inspiration for a poem would recognize its lesbian content. But as time went on, she censored her work less and less. By the time she wrote Pictures of the Floating World, her poems about Ada were much more blatantly erotic. The series "Planes of Personality: Two Speak Together" chronicles their relationship, including the intensely erotic poem "A Decade" that celebrates their tenth anniversary. Amy's dedication to the art of poetry was consuming. She purchased her parent's estate upon her death and established it as a center of poetry, as well as a place to breed her beloved English sheepdogs. She promoted American poetry, acting as a patron to a number of poets. Amy also wrote many essays, translated the works of others, and wrote literary biographies. Her two-volume biography of Keats was well-received in the United States, though it was rejected in England as presumptuous. She is best known for bringing the Imagist movement to America. Her own work, full of lush imagery but slim on excess verbiage, was similar to that of H.D. (Hilda Doolittle), an emerging Imagist poet in England. . When Amy saw the similarity, she travelled to England to research the movement and ended up bringing back volumes of poetry to introduce Imagist work to the United States. Ezra Pound, the "head" of the movement, was most offended by Amy's involvement. He threatened to sue her, something which delighted her no end, and finally he removed himself from the movement entirely. She argued that this was good; he would ruin it anyway. Pound took to calling the movement "Amygisme," and engaged in plenty of scathing attacks against her. Beyond the nasty slurs hurled by Pound, Amy was criticized for many more things that did not actually reflect her skill as a poet. Critics were offended by her lesbianism, by the way she wore men's shirts and smoked cigars, and even by her obesity. They argued that she must not have experienced true passion, reflecting a common prejudice that women who are overweight cannot possibly be sexual beings. In the face of these barbs, her literary career suffered, and she did not achieve the status as a poet she so richly deserved. Her admir[...]

40. World: That's How I Feel About You by falconep

Tue, 25 Jul 2017 07:13:38 -0400

A fun piece which allowed some experimentation.
•Tremolo is hard to work in (but I pressed forward).
•I'm a big fan of Lee Michael's and his Hammond B3 (back in the 70s)
•No guitar VSTis were used to make the guitar sounds. The crying one is (wait for it), a Sax VSTi with modified ADSR envelope.
•Improvised a totally unusual intro.
•Worked in a "stinger ending".
Thanks for the listen. More to come!
