    Thought I would post a working file instead of a finished one from my DAW. Not too glamorous but sometimes fun to put up what work goes into a song.

    Ayyy, high-five from another Reaper user. People always give me clueless looks when I tell them I work in Reaper for professional production gigs...

    Here's some older, excerpted material I did a ways back for a portfolio for a psycho-suggestive music gig. I'll put up some more recent stuff up when it's not late my time. I have a very high-fi album from my senior year at the big fancy recording studio at my conservatory. Needs some remastering though.

    Also, @Cellist88 Love your tone! It's refreshing to hear really clean phrasing and vibrato like that. So many folks nowadays throw in unnecessary rubato and heavy bowing and it just muddies up the line. The Schumann particularly was great, you did so much expressing with dynamics and kept the tempo shifts subtle and the bowing light. Very nice playing.

    Thanks @ThePianoMan . The other two recordings before were recorded almost 2 years ago. Its good to hear from something that I am improving :). Studying in Germany changed a lot of that weird rubato and taste that tends to plague many artists nowadays in their attempts to sound unique. I try to do only what is necessary and try to let the music speak for itself.

    Ah, yeah. The Europeans will do that. I'm usually pretty open to interpretation, but so many artists nowadays just play a lot of notes without knowing why.

    Also, @Garns the Unity Gain Temple stuff is HOT. Love it. Such an inventive mix of accessible and more out stuff.

    Unrelated, Are you a Cat Empire fan?

    After thinking about finishing something.. and never getting around to it, I'll just release these demos to the group. Maybe one day I'll polish something up. I'll point out the non pop rock stuff as interesting experiments. That said, enjoy.

    I released this today - https://slewrate.bandcamp.com/album/infra-ultra

    6 tracks / 6 sessions

    infra is about emergent patterns and incidental time

    ultra was a personal speed-mixing exercise - trying to find a creative use of saturation and side-chain compression. Lots of focus on the bass and building up the density of textures.

    Both are a bit more assertive than my ambient tracks, and have a bit more of my voice in them as well.

    Edit - everything was 100% created, mixed, and mastered with the Code-6.

    Man, is it satisfying to get the creative juices flowing after a break - here's my one-man-rock-band's new tune & music video:


    This time I concentrated on snappy drum beats, clear melodies and keeping it short. Plus loads of guitar effects! :D It gets kind of proggy at times.

    I once again recorded drums at our rehearsal space and the rest (guitars, bass, keys) at home. Video editing was done with iMovie.

    It's very nice to see and hear so many cool entries, keep 'em coming!

    ...

    Eh, why not.

    I don't play any instruments, but I've been wanting to learn the violin for ages now. In the meantime, I've been working on my singing. I'm still far from decent at it, but I figure I might as well document the process:

    This was recorded using my mobile a few hours ago. My room's in the middle of being remodelled, and is currently empty save for a few paint cans. I rather liked the reverb so decided to record something. Mind, I'm far out of practise and this was a cold start of sorts (no vocal warmups), plus I had to rein my voice in a bit because I was afraid of bothering the neighbors.

    Already posted a couple times in this thread but I thought I'd share another -

    https://slewrate.bandcamp.com/track/qeilinp

    [​IMG]

    This one is really an exploration of microdynamics via the use of semi-granular sounds across various frequency bands, with some fractalesque patterns.

    Kind of has an implicit as opposed to explicit rhythm. Maybe not as accessible as my previous posts but alas, this is how I spend my free time.

    As always... made, mixed and mastered with LFF Code-6 using REAPER. Album art made in Photoshop Extended CS6

    Posted in my status but figured I'd post here too.

    Hoping to wake up this thread, I want to hear more original music from Friends!

    This one is a little different than some of my other stuff. Ambient meets... something else. Very proud of how the bass turned out.

    Once again, download for free for lossless quality. Produced with REAPER / HE-6. Feedback appreciated.
