Description
This is a collab with perceptualvortex, _nderscore and Mungo. It all started with an evolving "spine beat" that I created from some sounds that PV sent me... and it took off from there. PV cooked up a bunch more sounds, _nderscore supplied the most of the synth work, and Mungo contributed vocals. I chopped, rearranged, tweaked and put the thing back together with more added noise...and the result is this electro-psychadelic big beat freak fest...Rock on!!

freaky sound fest
like the eerie textures and that spine beat
is mean.
the vox stabs are cool, liked how it builds and
the ending is great.
good collab here dudes.

cheers

A "mean" beat... I like the way that sounds... appreciate the comment,
Mr. K!

This is
drenched with an eerie haunting texture in the beginning
which evolves into a miasma of soundscaped visions.
amazingly, one can imagine the nerve impulses firing as
they leave the spinal chord..

weird, but a good sort of weird..
Nice collab, mix and arrangement.
production excellent

another word...
"miasma" is another great word... now we just need to add that to
katchoolik's "mean" and we have a "mean miasma"... I like where this is
going...

Also, thanks for stopping by! It is always nice to see a girl in these
parts... especially a MacJams Queen such as yourself! It's usually the
fellow geeky noise-loving dudes who stop by (you know who you are!).

Alright... another girl...guys, we are on a roll here! Thanks CJ! No, there
are no gunshots in here, but a lot of these abstract sounds are open for
interpretation... there is a sound effect of a body falling down the steps,
though... see if you can pick out where it is.

this certainly makes a place for itself in my
subconscious. there is this haunting little melody
that goes through hell- that's what keeps drawing
me back.
it's also interesting to go back through the piece to
pay attention to the specific contributions of each of
you rascals- i think each contributor brought out
special, unique aspects of themselves and their
styles to fit this little collage.
cheers. it's like indian food.

Yeah, there are sections in this that definitely sound more like one of
_nderscore's tunes, or even something created by PV or Mungo... we are
all cross-breeding and feeding off each others ideas. Pretty soon we will
just be this one giant fleshy undulating collective with multiple
appendages. I think I am gonna be sick.

Making me think there is a whole new world of internal
sounds that I am waking up to.

Thanks for venturing out into the unknown!

An artistic flair for the music of our inner being.

collab with ya... somehow!

Bodies down the stairs
Hey Stunner, this is a sweet track. You guys did a messed
up job. The in and out textures, the array hear is
spectacular! There is so much going on, bit I like how it's
not a jumbled mess.

I coulda listened to this all day.

Good job kiddies

I second
what _nderscore said. I'm pretty amazed at how well you integrated all the pieces. You have a great sense of dynamics, space and calamity. This features my first recorded vocals, wahu! Thanks for letting me play too, Stun!

Thanks for all the noise, guys...without you this would be a pretty bare
bunch of bones. Your contributions added a lot of depth.

Wonderful...
This is so clever; such a great mix of really
excellent textures continually evolving. Really impressive.
Can you call abstract witty? If you can, can I call it that?

StunNing!
PV/Mungo/_nderscore & StunNutz, definitely a spine-chilling
force to be reckoned with! This is a fascinating and very
evocative journey to... where am I? pulsing lights & oblate
spheroids rushing past... eek, I'm inside myself looking out...
look OUT! Whew, it's over. Definitely not a Disneyland ride
with you guys involved, but very nicely 'scaped. Great use of
a variety of sounds, added reverb was perfect without getting
muddy, I liked how big and clean sounding this was, great
mixing! Wow.
ttfn,
Drakonis

What an eerily mean miasma of industrial Indian calamity!

Oh... wait...

Listening over and over again.
Holy! This is absolutely incredible, I would be deeply
impressed with this if it had been the work of one
musician, but the fact that this came from four separate
people and then you put it together, SN, just makes it
even more amazing. Every single element seems as
though it's in exactly the right place.

You guys all did an amazing job. I hope this isn't your last
collab. I've downloaded this and have it on repeat.
ledebutant said 4367 days ago (September 9th, 2005)
P.S.
I forgot to mention the incredible cover art. Did you do it, SN?
Stun Nutz said 4367 days ago (September 9th, 2005)
P.S.
Thanks for stopping by, ledebutant! I usually do all the artwork for my
tunes. The image above is a combination of a bunch of doodles (I draw
a lot at work when I am on the phone) and a medical stock photo...

.....collab! I could see this as a soundtrack for a medical film on Discovery Channel or some Sci Fi movie. Loved the panning/phaser(?) effect, and the cover art put the cherry on top.

something out of....
an "Aliens" type flick. On the edge of the seat sound
collage that is almost visual. This is an amazing
collab. Never dull or repetitive, if fact, just the
opposite. Completely engaging.

Borg Meets Alien
Dadai took the words right off my keyboard. Very moving, in
a visceral, creepy way. I can see the next victims careening
off the walls of their doomed ship as the heartless hunters
close in on their next meal. Nicely done. Great mix,
production and dynamcis. Terrific work guys.

Hey, if this is like Alien, then I am imagining Mungo as the android
character...you know, the one that spewed the white milky substance
when he was ripped in half...?!? I forgot his name.

Borg Meets Alien
Ash, I think...? And wasn't he played by Ian Holm who went on to play
Bilbo?? Anway, I keep thinking Alien also, maybe partly because of the
whole 'spine' thing.

You are right about Ash...(i just checked www.imdb.com)...but I am
really picturing Lance Henriksen, playing Bishop in "Aliens."

the future is now
Okay, most of us are stuck in musical styles from the
twentieth century on back, while you guys are forging
ahead with this tune. Maybe someday this piece will sound
"dated", but not anytime soon!

What amazes me most about this piece is the choice of
sounds and the way they are combined. With four
collaborators, it might be easy to clutter up a track, but
you all have preserved a lot of space in this. It has room
for the ears to "breathe".

There is also a reassuring sense of continuity of beat and
sound that holds this piece together from beginning to
end. The tendency of experimental music like this might
be to drift off into a "blob" of sound, but somehow this
track has a beginning, middle and end.

Great job, all!

the future is now
Thanks, Cameron... yeah, the overall structure of this was always in the
back of my head when I was arranging/mixing it. I wanted it to have
"breathing space" (quieter moments to balance the noisy areas) as well
as a definite beginning, middle and end... I'd like to think of it as a mini
symphony of noise. How's that for pretentiousness! Anyway, you hit the
nail on the head with your comment.

Freaktastic
What a great combination of talents! This is fascinating to
listen to. Such interesting textures, organic and electronic
together. I stays captivating the whole way through with so
many little details playing their parts. Very eerie and strange
in the best way. Very cool song art, too.

Excellent combination of heart and soul and sound and machines here. I particularly enjoyed Mungo's vocals. But really, it was all wonderful. Keep moving ahead, Eric, et al.

Thanks, Tom. I owe my performace to Eric's direction when I got the initial
sound file (which sounds much different from how the song ended up), to go
'bop bop bop' to the beat.

Man, my bad
Stun, When I saw your name for a comment on one of my tunes, I
thought, it sure has been a long time since I had seen any postings
from him. To my surprise, dismay and good fortune, I headed down
the street to your place to see if I had missed anything. Boy did I Miss it
and missed it in a big way. Not only had you posted, but you have
teamed up with my 'heavy hitter' favorites!

It is friday evening, I am heavily seasoned to taste... :)

WOWWWWWWWWW! This is the good stuff!!! After standing up to and
contesting my envy, I settled down, laid back and closed my eyes and
did what I felt safe enough too do, I expected the best... I love it when I
can do this and what happens exceeds my wildest imagination. You
guys... Man!

Individually you guys take me, but this..., this is ridiculous!!! If my hair
could be blown back it would be.... Instead, my scull has expanded
beyond a safe comfort zone while trying to imagine how each of you
does what you do, let alone the mad trio.

It seems that everything clicked here... I remember how I had a hard
time when I was first introduced to abstract by you guys, but now I
look forward to it as much and in most cases more than most. This one
was very cool

I know that inviting me to the party might crash your intent when
creating abstract (given that what I do is noticeably structured), but I
would love to do something w/ any one of you if you should happen
upon a space that I might fit on a future piece.

Thanks for this and again, thanks for your continued support.

from the spine........
comes a nervous system with muscles, skin (alien of course) and head which has many faces........... another beautiful collab. where i come from.... i've never seen more than 2 collaborators on one track. this is really nice........... jarring, tingling, crunchy and somewhat warm and soothing........ this track is, well, great.
