Interesting little tune you got here. I like how it is broken up into sections, with each section repeating the main theme but in a unique way. The guitar does tend to darken the mood but it is very cool. enjoyed the listen - thanks for sharing this with us.

This is cool man! I have Reason/Record but I haven't really been able to explore what it can do yet. Pretty creative stuff. Nice!

I've been
using record almost exclusively for a while now. I really like it, but I am quite visually orientated and like the rack metaphor.

guitar sound
was created by having two instances of line6 pod playing simultaneously, both with a massive amount of reverb and a slight delay on one of them.

Nice samples
I love a track with some samples, don't hear enough of it anymore. It'd be neat if you worked some 1/2/3/4 beep type instrument part to follow up your samples!

Because I'm
vocally chanllenged, the only way to get vocal interest in my songs is to use samples - it takes ages finding the right one!

The guitars are great on this.
Different levels of sounds and instruments carry it along well.
I would have maybe tightened up the hi-hats a bit to complement the rhythmic beat of the synth..but maybe that's just me.
Good soundscape
cheers

The hi hats
were played in roughly to start with. I can hear a drag in the timing, but I thought I'd leave it in as it gives the track a more dislocated feel. Thanks for dropping by Mr Bee!

Reverb-o-rama
I love the experimentation here, the reverbed guitars are awesome. The phases of the tune are very organic and I'm digging that synth work.

Thanks!
I had real fun with the reverb - once you push past a little reverb it really changes the character of the guitar.

hung up
pete - was disappointed you chose an american bird to tell you to hang up. what's wrong with that nice old bloke from the speaking clock? what was this one all about? it's odd....and i mean that as a compliment. it reminds me of those dreams you get when you've got flu...there's this all encompassing 'energy' that wraps around you and although at the time you know exactly how it feels, you can't describe it to anyone else. i particularly like the section at 1.39....very filmic.
why so short?

Cheers Julian
Glad you liked it, in a fevery kind of way. My choice of voices is limited by what's available for nowt on the web!! It's a bit short cos I didn't think the tune would sustain a long piece and I couldn't come up with a chorus either!!

Love what you did with the pod and with the melody. As you said: plaintive. Mantra-ish. I can hear a choir singing the same words over and over again following the melody.

Cool soundscape. Dark backdrop, quite minimal but it is gelling very well. Love the swelling guitar notes.
