Deconstructed Electro, nice.
a weird and wonderful piece which of which i am a big fan a touch of Henry cow ? i think so if its strange you'll find me there
Love the way you come up with this dreamlike material Andrew, weird and wonderful. Not read the book but google says it was Fredric Brown, might just check it out. Thumbs up, Gibbo
I like what Frankie H called the genre...Subdued-Big Beat Electro PsyTrance! Love anything to do with extraterrestrials too...superbly...um.. 'captured' within your music. These lyrics of yours are pretty cool poetry on their own. Brilliant music I thought. keith
Great stuff Andrew, got to love that beat and bass line. Then throw in a wee touch of Andrew and voilà. Always love your lyrics. Some nice and weird synth in there also......................David
classic read by Fredric Brown(?) 60's pulp...can see how that connects here, Andrew...so cool! Interesting to think about a project that takes several Sci-fi novels and presents the synopsis in a musical treatise such as this! Is this the first of.....? :) You have the voice for this kind of narrative...and your music makes it all a delight :)
If this is bonkers I totally endorse it! Like that riff with the keys and the fine bass line. Sweet melodies got me bouncing in my seat swaying with the beat this is so neat really hard to beat! Thumbs!
Awesome Andrew... Love this song. I would call it the genre of some kind of Subdued-Big Beat Electro PsyTrance. I was very surprised to learn that you do not imbibe lots of chemicals like I did when making music. You must be naturally tapped into the creative wonderful place the rest of us need substances to visit... Still, your visual artwork is something I could have stared at for hours while tripping, and it is just the best. Even better than MTV's Liquid Television. Yours is the highest Andrew and I'm not just saying that to be kind, it is true!!! Nice to see Lodato here breathing some life back into this place, I hope to hear some of his music again. This song is lots of fun and mysterious, like all your killer music work! Take care and see you on the flip-side!! ...your friend, - DJ Frankie Holmes
I love ethereal themes. I wrote many a tune about Extraterrestrials of all kinds. The has that dream quality about it. You wake mans scratch your head and ask, did that happen? Nice work Andrew.
I have been (pretty much) into recording since the mid 1980's, even before I bought my first 4-track cassette recorder (A Tascam Porta-One) I did a few things at a Melbourne based art school where I ran a couple of tape decks, with manipulated sounds on the tapes, just to hear what it sounded like, needless to say it was experimental!
Thereafter I tried to get onto some more serious recording, and tried my hand at steel string guitar songs, I am a left handed person, who plays guitar right handed, so I don't ever need to re-set any instrument, and also the left handed way does not feel right to me, I'm not sure why this is, but it just is!
Recently I have been enticed by all the modern soft-synths and incredible processing availabe to computer aided recording, and I mainly (still) use Garageband when I track, I have tried Ableton Live and Pro-Tools, but I need to learn a whole lot more, the are very intetesting, but I always go back to Garageband, for some reason I find it works for me, and is quite similar to my old Atari ST (running Cubase 0.1!) which I still have, and it still works too!
Anyhow, I try a variety of genre's and I love all electronic music, I also like Ambient, World, Folk, Jazz, Blues, Rock, Pop....etc
Music is like oxygen to me, I don't think I could ever live without it!
