Slalom #5



 Genre: Experimental
No artwork

Get Flash to see this player.

This is a variation of Slalom #4 which I uploaded ages ago. This variation has more Ambient textures and parts go away from the stereo foreground towards the back and come back. Not sure if I like this version better than the others or not. Probably not. It's certainly not 'crisp' enough for electronic music to me. That's where it falls down.

Hi Karen.......
I hope you prefer the other versions. This is tame and muffled if compared to the other versions. I made this version a few days ago and, as I listened to it, I realised that the rhythm and sequence were familiar and it took me couple of days to find where I'd heard this before. The best I can say is that it is a variation on a theme.

Happy holidays to you and your family and friends.

Take care.

Crispy Critters
I assume you mean the phrasing is too long? Or it could be that little verby following the arp is too dirty?
Being self critical is always a muse thing... I think this piece stands up well, I would warp the time and twist the stereo field as the g forces and speed waxed and wained- but I'm a dog when it comes to these things. Thanks for posting your music.

Hi Daug.....
I mean that this version is crap at the side of my previous Slalom mix and has nothing really going for it. It is mushed and off-mike and not too good at all. I debated with myself about uploading it and finally took the plunge.

Crispy Critters could probably sum it up in one!! Your suggestions are way cool and your music sounds that much better for all the effort that you put into each mix.

Take care.

I think I know what you mean
There is not a lot of depth in the sound, a bit like if I was listening on iPhone speakers or something ;-) and I am not sure it really needs all those 9.46 minutes - and with that old abrupt ending we've talked about ;-), BUT apart from that I like the piece a lot. I like the tempo and action in it. And the instruments you use. A lot like Tangerine Dream actually :-)

My wish for this one would be that you try some EQ-ing and maybe spreading the sound in space (left/right etc) to get a better hi-fi sound and then put in a break somewhere with a calmer section (or maybe even something hysterical?) and maybe coming back to this with a smooth fade out at the end. I don't know. Maybe that would not be a Reinholt piece anymore ;-)

Anyway, enjoyed, it's not half as bad as you claim, you know...

Take care,

Hi Henke.....
Thanks for your kind words and encouragement with this track. I may split the piece and add a calmer section. This sounds an excellent suggestion.

All the best for 2012 to you and your family.

Take care.

Cranked back intensity
I just came from #4 and this one seems to have less drive, less forward direction. And yet, as Henke says, listened to on its own merits without comparing to anything, it is pretty cool - like a handful of sparklers lighting up the night with their star like and short lived little points of light. Nowhere to go, and yet lots for the music to describe.

I for one am glad you reposted.

Hi Doug.....
I had created this mix and named it something like 'introspection', then realised that it sounded familiar and so eventually the rhythm gave me a clue as to where I'd heard something similar. I see what you and Henke mean about it standing up on its own so I'll go with that thought.

I hope you and your family have a great 2012.

Take care.

Nice intensity!
Cool frenetic arpeggiation, gives a good sense of motion... I'm hearing some clipping, but it might be the native distortion in the patch (?)

Hi Phil.....
There IS clipping in the mix. It is evident on a few mixes using these particular patches but it could also me being over enthusiastic with the volume control!!

I hope you and your family have a great 2012.

Take care.
