A Need for Urgency



 Genre: Experimental

This mix is just another of my diversion pieces, where I put together various electronic old school sounds until I made something that didn't sound too bad.

It's under experimental but the finished product is not really experimental except in the way it was constructed.

Sounds pretty
experimental to me, I have to say. Makes me think of a chase scene, or the soundtrack to a speeded up movie of the construction of a city. Very cool. Nicely done. Peace.

Hi Dajama.......
Yes it is experimental but the finished product was contrived and so not so experimental. That's really what I meant to say.

I'm really just playing around with synths and effects and programmed sequences that trigger these synths and interact with the effects.

Sometimes it all seems to work and sometimes I move on to something else pretty quickly.

Take care.

Peace Love Respect

Thanks Dee.......
As I said above, to Dajama, the mix was experimental in the beginning but moved on to become contrived and determined but there's no genre for that, so it was lumped under 'experimental'.

Thanks for your kind words and for listening.

Take care.

You are...
...the master, Paul, of this kind of intriguing "experiment." It amazes me that you write this kind of soundscape and then turn around and still enjoy my own more classical things. You are a courageous musician, always willing to break the mold and forge out into the stratesphere. I thoroughly enjoyed this art you have painted in sound. If you'd let me post a 10, I'd do it.

Hi Paul.........
I fully appreciate your very kind comments. I just enjoy going down less walked paths. I enjoy the unexpected joy in finding some new angle on a piece of music (or group of sounds) and then seeing how these pieces effect others.

I was brought up with classical Tenor's, Maria Callas, Tosca, Tito Gobi, Chopin, Liszt, Rachmaninoff and so it was easy for me to take piano lessons, after learning the recorder and being able to read music.

I am currently learning musical arrangement and listening to everything that I can get my hands on, from ancient music through modern genres and across the whole spectrum of musical types.

I don't have genres that I wont listen to, apart from maybe Hiphop/Rap/Country & Western. Everything else is open season for me.

Thanks for listening and take care.

very busy bee sounding. that rhythm is great for this, and i love the synth sound. i found a free synth the other day you would probably like: it's the arturia modern vintage (all arps and different moogs), they also have a jupiter 8. the demo's are free, but you can't save presets.

enough of that, this is really interesting to me the whole way through and i like how you drop the frantic rhythm for a second in the middle and then return to it.

Hi Michael...
I wasn't too sure that anyone would like this piece at all, but that is the same thought that I have with many of my recent pieces. I think it is because of the way I approach these pieces and experiment with different things.

I'll check out the free synths you mention.

As always, thanks for listening and leaving your thoughts.

Take care.

Great diversion - I know what it's like to get into that head
follow the elements down the rabbit hole. I like hearing the chords behind the leads - and the time break in the middle is nice. Tripped out Bach - Wendy on acid.

Hi Bud.....
I like the way that you describe my music. It is very observational and astute. We seem to have similar ideas as to musical form, knowing that what is recorded is not always the way that it is interpreted by the human ear/brain.

I find this type of work really intruiging and will probably continue to do stuff like this until the cows come home.

Thanks for stopping by, and indeed Miss Carlos started a trend that seems never to have stopped. Thank goodness!!!!

Take care.

Thanks H......
I enjoyed putting this all together. I can't remember how or what I did but I know that I enjoyed spending the time on the mix.

Take care.

Experimental music is any music that challenges the commonly accepted notions of what music is. There is an overlap with avant-garde music. John Cage was a pioneer in experimental music and defined and gave credibility to the form. As with other edge
