Drum Beats And Distant Shores
If this is recorded on your new DAW Andrew it seems the vocal has a new depth and clarity, electronics are great too. Excellent song. Easy vote, Gibbo
Hi Rich, Thanks for the kind words, I sometimes have the feeling of a once removed quality from the music through the use of computers, but now I'm not so sure, its still a connection to....LIFE!
Not sure what Frankenstein style is but IT'S ALIVE! This has a nice improvised feel to it as it goes on. You always take me on a nice mind altering journey with your tunes.
Hi Deon, Thank you very much for the kind words, and I'll try to get some more tunes uploaded soon!
Lovely production and some really sweet singing of those wandering lyrical musings. Love the feel.
Hi Terry, Thank you for the kind words, I know what you mean, it seems to take me forever to get used to a new DAW, but I am going to study it intensely for a while, some many useful features in this one (Tracktion)
I love the idea of floating on a raft (like Huckleberry Finn!) very cool image!
I know the labour of a new DAW...a steep learning curve, but the rewards...the sounds..:) More sounds leading to more thoughts, leading to more creativity...lyrical meanderings...a long and winding river that is best experienced from a raft, a la Huckleberry...poke around the distant shores...enjoyed the vocals, but reinforced with the synths echoing the melodic lines as they rise and fall with the motion of the tides. very cool Andrew!
Hi David, Cheers for the kind words, I do like this new DAW, it has a good sound and is only (AU) $60.00! One thing is that it IS a bit different to look at, it may take me a while!
The clarity on this tune and your remix of Trancendental Elder is just amazing, Andrew...I've admired all your earlier work, you've a style all your own and it's fascinating hearing you take it to a new level. Now you've got me thinking about upgrading my gear! Thumbs up!
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!
