My Bloody Father's Day

Description
This is a drone piece based on the D chord. Apple loop drums and the rest is guitar, bass, midi keys, and air synth straight through or looped. I was inspired by My Bloody Valentine, but ended up sounding more like Sigur Ros.

Yesterday I posted a shorter version of this tune - and after listening to both on my iPod I've opted to replace it with the original unedited version. You're in for a 7+ minute listen. Thanks for taking the time.

Play loud.

Happy Father's Day
Very unusal, Bud. I hear shimmer, drone, waves, pulses, distortion, shift, effect, volume, mass, slow, rinse, repeation.............and birds.
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!

Turn Off Your Mind, Relax and
Happy Father's Day.
Thanks for u/l the longer version.

Vic posted a similar comment re TNK
to the first version that was up for a little while. My daughter heard a little Norwegian Wood towards the end.

Thanks for your patience with the length of this piece. I'm sure there's a decent "radio edit" I could do - but I'm a sucker for repetition. In the end this may be the beginning of a different song entirely.

Yeahhhhhhhhhh...........
I missed the shorter version... but that's all for the good. This needs some real estate to ri-i-i-i-de for a while.

I started thinking about what it might be like getting stoned and watching TV golf while listening to this... really loud. There's the putt...... oh man, the ball is turning into a 747..... and it's flying over the sea with winged chocolate rabbits...... oh man....

This is going straight into my iTunes, Bud. I can listen to this anytime and still pass a DOT random drug test.

I think...

I love the TV golf reference -
After I got wisdom teeth extracted many years ago - I was sent home with Percocet for pain. Being more of a psychedelic hippie I was new to this stuff so I took one and had a glass of wine that afternoon and turned on the TV. I watched the PGA and after a second glass of wine - or a second pill (maybe both) TV golf became my drug of choice. I swear they were whispering just for me as I floated over the rolling hills of green.

Now that I'm a clean living Dad - I sometimes watch golf just for the memories. BTW - anyone who watches golf on TV can handle a 7 minute instrumental.

Thanks for stopping by.

The sitar is from Ben Boldt. You can get it free at the resource page here. The Boldt packs are great - and the cello is the Fitch Cello - also free here.

In the beginning
there was the D chord. What more do we need? Thanks for stopping by.

BTW - is the mix i.e. levels of distortion acceptable? I couldn't seem to get a cleaner version of this out of BG.

distortion
well, yeah, there is distortion in there - but it's the good kind!

i suppose a purist might prefer to hear tube clipping or tape limiting, but i like it OK. there's probably some way to emulate that, even simply by dropping the highend just a tad - but the crispness would go away...

i think it's part of what give this its drive...

Thanks for your comments
the chiming guitar is played with a Jellyfish pick. Thanks go to Vic for the turn-on. Anyone looking for a real treat should pick up an Air FX. That's the low swooping drone and the squiggles - the only sunth on this tune.

Bud,
I have been gazing at my shoes for 7 minutes and have never been so happy. Sonic Youth drony, without the earsplitting squeels. Yeah, or, I agree, Stone Roses more like it. Maybe a tab bit of Brian Jonestown Massacre when you get into the tabla bit. Really cool, you are always pushing the envelope and coming up with stuff I admire. Oh, and yeah, I played it LOUD, thanks for that suggestion...;-)

I like the shoe gazing reference
The Jesus and Mary Chain were high on the influence list for this one too. I can only dream about getting my production chops up to your level - the WAR collab sounded awesome. I just read the 33 1/3 book on Loveless by MBV and now I'm reading the one about Paul's Boutique from the Beasties. These books are a hoot.

Nice
This as listenable as it is ignorable (a compliment, believe me). I didn't play it loud because it's just too damn early in the morning, but as it played I was puttering around doing random everyday stuff; and I would find myself drifting away to the land of aural hum, and then suddenly snapping back to the music. Lots of power in the details; the whole picture very gentle and positive. I think this should be twice as long.
bud said 3657 days ago (June 22nd, 2007)
Thanks for your comments
I completely get what you're saying about ignorable - I consider it high praise. In the My Bloody Valentine book I recently read Kevin Shields talked about striving to have his music work differently on different systems and at different volumes. I was thinking about that when I did this which is why I left it long as an ambient piece. I also think it hangs loud - but in a different way.

Good luck at DTW - I'm afraid I can't make it.

Hot damn... sweet tune!
Giving a lot of depth to a simple idea... you have made much more out of less here. My Bloody Valentine is one of my favoritist bands... and this falls under "influenced by" rather than "copying", I would say... which is good! ALso reminded me a little of Cornershop's drone pop gem 6 a.m. Julliander Shere (I probably mispelled that). Bye!
