Authors' Notes

So I did this gig, and it went pretty well except for my Olga synth blowing up when I started to play it. After that the drummer decided to mess with the tempo, which annoyed me at the time, but was probably a good thing as it got my head out of the burnt out synth and back into the music. The crowd loved it, despite the flaws in the show.

Ok, ok, I really didn't do this live, and Olga can't blow up.
Here is a faked live track for SDCompo 25.
Hope you like it

holy CRAP that scared me. :P
I... yeah...
anyways, I've yet to decide on the intro, but faking live tracks in sequencers is hard work. and that would have to be one heck of a rude drummer... heh heh. sounds like it was done live.

I think the band members should really sit down and talk about these tempo issues and synths blowing up. But it's live, whatchagonnado. I wish i was there for the show. The crowd seems really wild. ;)

Song - I quite admire the way you have just pulled a raw idea out of your head and stamped it on the page. Being a lover of old genesis tunes, any lingering synth melody is going to get my vote.
Excellent experimentation. Keep it up. :)

at least olga decided to blow up on an even bar, so it sounds like intentional noise. this seriously makes you wonder whether you could get away with doing an actual live song for the compo. it'd be a cool idea anyway! i guess you could load up your instruments, just hit record, and jam while renoise records the notes that you play live. cool experiment though :)

interesting experiment.

yeah that one part was effed up man. good thing my ears are already ruined anyway. :P

so what style is this? unique, that is for sure.

well man, its all art so just keep it up. and lay off the MAXed volumes for a while!

Ow, christ! I'm all for mentally-painful music, but it shouldn't be *physically* painful :P

I like the main noodling organ, interesting riffs. I'd say the mixing seems bit off, with the synth that comes in at the end being too loud. For me, I think that military snare could do with a bit of humanising, maybe volume alterations of the hits? Sort of feels like the same sound too much over and over.

back from drug comments:

the tempo changes are peculiar? also beats are too much snare, not enough other beats. try using the loops when they provide them in sample pack to plug into psycle for some ideas, or to use in the mix for some structured beats.

your background chords that hang out a long time, are too long need more chords and breaks. :P

toms at the end are cool. audience and gong are nice touches.

Oww shit, 0:38 to 0:45 TOO LOUD. If it was an intentional sound, it has some need Alien like sound in it but it's still too loud. The rest of the track has some pleasant organ textures going on. The gong at the end of the track is a good example of a more acceptable volume level for sudden noises.
