Hang #1


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Was cleaning out my hard drive and found this mp3 from last year. It's the first hang drum track I ever did and I always intended to post it up as an open collab. I'd love to hear what some of you can make out of this. I sort of ripped it apart and used it in "Into the Tunnel" but it's up for grabs now - have fun - just let me know if you're gonna post something with it.

If I remember correctly it's at 110 bpm and approximately in Dminor. lol....or not.

I'm just putting this up here for y'all to have fun with - please no faves.

************


And it has begun!

TheDanseLeviathan's "space cowboy" version
Reggie Pole's instrumental rock version
ShadowofNine's Far-Eastern ambient version
Doug Somer's Wind dance

As it is
It would work well as background music for a video. I'm looking forward to what other Macjamers do with it.

I am going to put this in Future Projects. this is great! Now this is software, right... or do you have a hangdrum? Methinks this can work many places. Love the mood. now where is that No Fave button?

Minimalistic
perhaps, but surely a piece of magic in its own right. Incredible how varied you could get this, an interestkeeper all the way through. An instant fa, eh, well, yeah, fav..?! Please?!

No faves
Hahahaha. I don't see how that could ever happen. Your table scraps are a feast to most of us. As I was listening, I DLed it. My iTunes automatically loads and plays my DLs. I heard both tracks playing but offset in time. What a nice effect. I think I will have a go at it. Endless possibilities. What a nice gift.

Well I played along already...

Hang #1
Great rhythm and sounds. I kinda like how it stands on it's own but the MJ community should be able to slice and dice this nicely. This is very calming. Perfect before bedtime!

LOL
how's that "no faves please" thing working out for you? you crack me up - what were you THINKING? ANYWAY, i love these hang drums, you have a real gift for percussion rhythm and as others have said, this stands on it's on AND it will be very cool to hear what people come up with.

I never even heard of hang drums!
Now I read they are almost impossible to buy. This is really pretty, Shay. This is your first recording of the drums? Wow.

hang
What a beautiful sound--now I have to google what a hang drum is, as I can't even picture it! I imagine a series of vessels full of water hanging from a tree limb, struck with a rubber mallet. Am I close?

A mini-symphony - great.
I'm listening side-by-side with ShadowofNine's collab on this, "Ghosts of Thailand." He had gret material to work with, in fact he flatly said his goal was to enhance, not dominate this track. And for good reason. It's a mini-symphony all by itself. Wonderful.

A timelessness in the rhythm
OK, OK - no fave-ing! But if I didn't have to honour your request I would have faved it. This has a steady forward motion with little bursts of energy. It's very musical in its feel.

And an open collab eh? hmmmmmm....

Nice one! Very nice!

Be well,
Doug

Soft and pulsing
Its like your pulling out the notes with each hand strike at least that is what it sounds like to me. I dont think I would touch this its very good the way it is. but then again you never know where some part of this might show up. Great song!

Working with just rhythm...
...is something I haven't tried yet, but this little track has given me some ideas. You have achieved a great deal of variety here and, though there is no melody as such, this composition is one that can easily be listened to many times without it becoming in any way wearing or boring. I wonder where a melodic line might go...Hummmm... (and I wish I had some time...)
