Feel The Rhythms
A very successful experiment, exotic and amazing percussive performance. Thumbs.
Que pasa mano!? uhhf I had those feel therityms feel with the freezer and barkins crckets......loved the mandolin that sometimes even sound like sitar the druming in bongos is far out snd ...and am very flatered by your comments on my tracks irhink we we could do a collab...enjoyed this end to top
Very different Terry...seems to have elements from around the globe :) Very percussive track...even the string instruments have a nice rhythmic touch...although some of the manic rhythms would give a quantize freak like me sleepless nights lol. Thumbs
Certainly feeling the rhythms here... and I must say, I adore the touches of eastern~ bit-o-tribal, and even a splash of irish-celtic. This is just down-right groovy!! Thanks for the d/l, Terry... I'll be playing this in my headset when riding to your rhythms! Fantastic tune!! =Bravo= :)
I know the feeling of "can't let go".. been there... I love the experimentalness of this track.. you are not afraid to go where you feel... glad to see you like to learn new stuff still....
I have to admit this is not one of my favourite of yours. But what i love about you is your fearless approach to creating music. You freely experiment and share your efforts. You cross genres and try new things. A sign of a great artist. No wonder everybody worth their salt wants to work with you . You also give insightful comments and not generic one liners.We will be working on our Dark Harbour collab with you very soon. Until then, keep up the good work and BRAVO. Rated
Hi Terry, Thanks so much for support and nice comments on the new song/remix!! Much appreciated!
you crack me up. I love your tenacity my friend you take the cake when it comes to details. You're worse than me and I'm obsessive compulsive. All kiddin aside, amazement is in the house.
Fun track... nothing "expected" on this song.. all creative and fresh. I think a few more plays are in order!
Sorry I missed this the 1st time around. Wild track! Really creative stuff! Enjoyed this as usual! Thumbs up
Very awesome sound, dude. Maybe we could collaborate some time, haha. Just wanted to thank you for checking out Fust and leaving such constructive & generous comments, it is much appreciated hearing how others view the sound. Based on your suggestions, I've uploaded a new song that you may enjoy. Thanks again and if you wanna hear more, you can find us at www.reverbnation.com/fust :]
Like the experimentalism of this. Nice beats plus that 'Eastern' thingy!!
Yeah a little out there to me too lol Interesting track, Sounds like a mad experiment...Not so sure about the vocal...Don't think it's needed...Personal taste of course...I do find it hard commenting on your page....it's so far from my comfort zone sometimes... Not that I don't listen but sometimes I find it hard to put words to it... Other than good track... I hate leaving generic comments...Thanks for keep coming by my page... Really appreciate it... Even tho I seem to miss quite a few of yours... I do listen but like I said I find it hard to put my thoughts in to words... Love the tribal feel to the drums...A good clean recording on them too...Unless they are digital?...Peace,Ricky
A mindbending track. Complex rhythms . Unconventional and experimental. Enjoyed.
Interesting track Terry, I enjoyed it a lot. Are we getting a little Wiccan here?
A little out there to me on this one - but wait, I'm not finished - brave, inspiring, influential, experimental - a one-way ticket to Trip City! You sure have a way to manipulate my mind into getting on my case about why I don't push the boundaries a little more - "Why aren't you experimenting a little more and trying out new sounds, like Terry? You're just so comfortable in your little world of safe sounds, aren't you? You don't see Terry sticking to a single formula, what are you so afraid of? Don't you want to be brave too?" Yeah, you make a lot of sense Terry, thanks for continuing to teach - even though it is summer vacation! LMAO!!!
Hi Terry.. Really sweet track... I really dig the use of the instruments you’ve chosen on this.. Very unique sound for sure. Tribal? I admire the artist who is not afraid to takes chances. You’ve pushed yourself rhythmically on this one! It drives the whole song so well. What a treat.
I'm feeling them :-). Quite a surreal piece. A free form rather loose composition. Get the feeling it is more about the sound of the track rather than any kind of melodic structure. Still loving the sound of the Dulcimer. Great as a WIP but reckon you can develop this into something more. Can tell you had fun though and thats a very important part of the process.Thumbs. James
Totally infectious, its hard to believe you are new to those instruments you play. This is a fine piece of music and it radiates the fun you had in creating it. Great work Terry, Gibbo
your wanderings take place in a different walk here my friend. I like the pace and twists all with a code it seems and native to a new world you've created. you really let the whole thing just go. admirable.
Hi Terry, This is one of your best tracks, great use of the Congas and Dulcimer, sounds very Mandolin like at times. It certainly sounds like you had a good time, and I like the sentiment. Interesting music and it really takes the listener somewhere special!

Exploring various styles and topics. Variety is the spice of life.
Joined this community of artists in July of 2011, and quickly observed the community-spirit of artists who take the time to listen to other artists' work and comment meaningfully and positively. The vibe is one of encouragement and helping out.
This was quickly expressed more tangibly in the number of collaborations that were being uploaded and that caught my attention. People were willing to offer skills and abilities, knowledge and understanding, and check their egos at the door and be willing to engage the difficult task of trying to work together for a common good - a better track. THIS has been an education for me and the learning that occurs as a result of working together is extraordinary.
Special mentions to those who have included me in their work, and they in mine: James Bell - not only got the ball rolling but is a kindred spirit; Dachleigh Music (Adam) - who used my cello lines in a some electronic music; Deggsy Music and DawnSinclair - the two are not always inseparable but they work so well together (that RnB will be a highlight!); Deon - we didn't do a lot together, but the journey was expansive; Rich Lodato, whose voice and guitar invites the cello to weave a melody too; AmorfoxiZ (Alfonso,) more cello; Left Ear Bleed (Jeff)...always good to help younger artists; Liquid (Anthony Gee) the budding rock keyboardist ;) and Michael Ritchie - consummate riff-meister and gentle spirit...thanks to one and all for including me in their journeys! FUN!...gotta be more fun than work or it isn't fun any more ;) Special mention to TomC in PC FL, for sharing his journey and struggles. Hang in there Tom!
Also a note of GRATITUDE...that is the theme for my class of students. A number of artists from mp3u have contributed messages addressed to my class, and some have written wonderful tracks to help us find a calm and gentle start to our days of turbulence. Dan Michaelson, Peter Vines...great ambient tracks and such wonderful messages - you two were the first off the mark and set the bar very high for how to approach a class that you didn't really know; Will Riding...the Sleeping Giants was an awesome introduction to story-telling through music; Erik Jurado...straight from you heart to right where my kids are...amazing intuition; Kelly Mitchell...your artist comment narrative was inspirational on over-coming obstacles; Mike Ritchie - one boy has become filled with hope because of a specific word of encouragement...how incredibly awesome! ; Deon -many positive messages and ideas about life and existence, as well as ways to find calm in the midst of Life - looking forward tomore of your special way of looking at life; Rich - sent along some A/V material...journey into visual art...chalked full of encouraging words... some fine vocal/visual/philosphical chicken soup for the teen-aged soul, I think; Liquid (Anthony Gee), who has created some fine music for the class and sent a wonderful interview for the class to listen to. We are also enjoying some wonderful orchestral arrangements from AndyF (Andrew Foyston), and a superbly written note to the students.
In 2013 we heard from KtA (Marty Etheridge) - the students love the DnB stuff; ATuesdayParadox (Kevin Gibbons) - a very encouraging message and pics pf Wales; Lazy Jane (Will Walton) sent along well-wishes from Georgia, DNA Codex (Andrew Shields)- not only introduced us to Surrealism, he showed us how to paint in a surealistic style with some extraordinary youtube clips with his wonderful ambient/electronica in the background; Essence - little did I know that in trying to find female artists to represent more gender equity, you would step in and tell a heart-changing story that resonated in all of us, and in one young woman in particular - you cast the seeds and often never know what good will result, so we trust and carry on; Keith Allen and Wednesday Wilson are also going to contribute their own stories and words of encouragement. In all of these personal touches and positive interactions there will be Wellness!
If there are any artists who wish to learn about the Wellness Project for this school year (Sept 2012-June 2013), or who wish to contribute, please feel free to contact any of the artists who have participated already, or contact me directly by clicking on the "e-mail" button at the top of the page here, or send along a PM (I do check fairly regularly)

**My creative space -a.k.a. "hobbit hole studio" - is a cinder block fruit cellar, 6x9, with a 6in poured concrete slab ceiling…nice reflective surfaces for some interesting vocals if they are not tamed..the furnace is old and loud and is adjacent, and the main waste pipe from the second floor passes through the “studio” so I have to record before the household awakes or after they are asleep because a single toilet flush can “wh- o-o-o-s-s-h-h-“ through a track like a roar of a jet engine, giving new meaning to the phrase I have come to accept as part of my Buddhist experience - “Flushed Away!”
