was in my head
again, playing around with new toys - didn’t have any real idea in mind, just wanted to see what i could do… which (turns out) is not much if you’re not inspired… the synth line sounds like something i have heard before but i dont know where…
We’re playing alongside Royal Chant as a part of their July residency at the Townie in Newtown. We’ll also be playing with Tessa & The Typecast. Not sure what time we’re playing yet, but it’s free entry!FACEBOOK EVENT.Poster by James.
Playing with Empire Rising, Jeremy Harris and Bones Atlas at the Bald Faced Stag, 345 Parramatta Rd, Leichhardt, Sydney.
can’t sleep so Skype-ing Jerrys and making beats
this was an awesome idea i thought I would put down after studying for monday exam. I wrote it all out and it sounded really cool - rocky and dancy and a bit like the infadels and that sort of stuff… then the computer crashed and i hadn’t saved (which is weird cause i usually hit command-s every ten seconds) i tried to recreate it but it lacks the energy/swagger and coolness of the original attempt…
-first mixdown attempt i exported the wrong track
-second mixdown i accidentally pitch shifted the guitar up 2 octaves
there is still something really wrong with the mix (synth and guitar not agreeing)
still putting it online though cause i like the rhythm of the guitar and it is first proper thing i have attempted with my new toys (korg nanopad and Kontact sampler plugin)
i got a bit carried away with new drum sequencer… too much fun :-P
the chords are only in there to remind me where the bars start/finish :-P
In 2006 (i think - black holes and revelations by muse had just been released) I went to Europe for the second time with my family. After travelling around for a couple months my family went home and I stayed in Germany - visiting an ex/friend who was an exchange student a couple years earlier at my school. Her then boyfriend Steven is the coolest person I have ever met and probably most responsible for my smoking. he played bass and we were into all the same bands - stuff like muse and the mare volta… except he knew more - like mclusky and art brut and stuff… anyway - we started making music together. we had this great concept album idea that we worked out and stuff which we still havent done -when i went home (overstaying my visa by a bit) we started swapping songs by email and working on them and stuff - everything we did was pretty experimental and ambient/computer based… we called it all mediocremusic… just remembered one of then tracks and thought i would share
