The Sirens Call
Hi Terry, David, Baz and Laura and Rich, Thank you for the kind words, Oh and YES Terry, there are still Hippies around Nimbin, but mainly running clothing shops…etc I have to admit I spent a very quiet Saturday night at the Nimbin pub, there was NOTHING happening there, very strange!
Anyhow, I'll try to do some more listening here at mp3u later today, still got heaps of work to do moving stuff in this old house!
I was wondering if the Tinnitus issue (I and it seems many others) suffer from could be related to the purity of the digital waveforms? In analog systems the waveforms are always being harmonically distorted, giving the much talked about "analog warmth" (or al least this is a good conversation starter?)
Good to hear you back after your break away. Nice ambient start that changes to a happy feel and then the beats come in and provide the momentum. Thoroughly enjoyed the listen and sorry to hear about the tinnitus that many of us muso´s suffer from. L&B
Yes the sounds of Andrew Shields. So glad you posted this one. Lofty and grand synth play with a very comforting melody. It may be not finished but if ya didn't tell us that, I'd never know it. This is good and has a nice rhythm that reminds me of a time escaping. I hope your tinnitus eases up on the attack. I'm just glad the warmer weather is kicking in. My demon (tinnitus) seems to settle a little in warmer climate but never leaves though. I call it "my on button". I wake and hear the ring and know I'm alive.
Very pleasant, all that bubbling, and those tones seeming to arise from the deep....sorry to hear about your tinnitus, not sure what you have in mind for this but it sounds complete as is. Rare I can listen to more than three minutes of this stuff, but this is gonna get another listen....well done!
loved the ambient opening sounds before it picks up...bass and water? choir vox as the siren call...from Byron Bay...or could you hear it all the way from Nimbin (are the hippies still there?)...very chilled track, Andrew. Makes me think a few weeks of R and R does the soul some good :)
Hi Guys, Cheers to you all too!
P.S I'll be checking out all your tracks after some shut-eye, closer to the weekend too!
Hi Andrew glad your back on line mate i love what I'm hearing at the moment you just got to love those synthesizers i like this kind of song to just sit back and let it take you away
top marks for this song
I am a visual artist who has been dabbling into music for a while now, and I started recording in about 1988, or therabouts, when I purchased a Tascam Porta-One four track cassette deck, which is still going strong!
I tend to just let ideas happen as they come, and try to get the ideas down as they come, and I see this methodology as being similiar, in some ways to methods of Surrealist visual art, but I don't try to force anthing, it really is (for me) about the flow of ideas, and (hopefully) this can resonate with the listener, and become an emotional experience?
Lately I have been very impressed with the quality of recording possible with computer DAWS and my second hand laptop computer, is now my workstation "go to" of choice, I just love the ease of use and amazing sound quality now available!
One day I'll get back to analog techniques to see if I'm missing anything sound-wise, but for now, I am a convert to digital, and why not!
