Description
Another product forged from the Skunkwrx. It is hard to tell when and where skunk1 and skunk 2 began or ended on this one. Equal partners in the construction and evolution. But, the conveyor belts have been activated once more and there is smoke, once again, curling from the chimney.

S2 edit: this one started life as a midi clav part that Skunk 1 did (from his guitar synth?). I wrote two midi parts to go with it (the bass part and a little synth riff to go with it) and there the whole thing stopped for a year or two until S1 dug it up and reworked it with new drums and vocal samples.

Thank you
All my synths have been forgiven!

Skunk 2

PS. I replied to your comment the same day you left it, but for some reason it seems to have disappeared. Weird.

love the drums and the lazy bass
in the beginning - unique composition for sure - cool analog synth stuff. are the drums edited loops - or did you do them some other way? cool track.

Drums
are Addictive Drums from S1. I don't have AD so he sent me the project with an audio bounce of the drums. I bounced that track 3 or 4 times through the LiveCut plugin (http://mdsp.smartelectronix.com/livecut/), chopped the results up and rearranged them into a single track. The original drum track is panned slightly left and the new livecut drum track slightly right.

Conveyor belts
Keep those machines oiled. One of the best things I've heard for awhile. Inventive, intricate, and just plain cool.

Really interesting work
rhythm is fascinating and, like Kevin, I wonder if they are loops.

Unique and exciting.

Cheers

there should be a new category called "Industrial Art Rock" - i love the rhythms and percussion in this. this is pretty addictive and i already took a D/L a couple of days ago when i first heard and faved it. sorry to lag behind for an actual comment - you guys are great!

Thanks Karen
Trying to push the envelope a little. S2 did a lot of the heavy lifting on this one. The Clavs and a lot of the synth work started with him. We pass things back and forth a lot so over time we can lose track of who did what exactly. Thanks for coming back to comment!

drums
Thanks! The drums really drive this cut to another realm I think. S2 is a master at cutting, stuttering and shaping a lot of the more experimental aspects of the drums. Going where S1 fears to tread sometimes but showing me there is nothing to fear in the dark laboratories of the Skunkwrx factory and taking things to a new place.

Hooks
Cool industrialized hooks. Very much enjoyed this one.

hooks
Some of the hooks and loops are played, then re-spliced and generally f-ed with until we like them. Others are out of the box with a lot of alterations. The vocal is off FreeSounds.org a site that has a tone of cool free sounds (obviously) that you can download and use (after registering). I highly recommend it others looking for some inspiration.

evolution
Thanks for the listen and the comment Vic. We tried to build this one up with a real mix of sonic tonalities. "Art Rock" is my old stand-by genre for the product from the Skunkwrx factory.

Thanks Peter. Just took a listen to The River, your newest cut. Really amazing guitar work. Love the tuning. Thanks for the listen. We try to keep it interesting. Bending and sometimes breaking a convention or two along the way.

Tracks like this remind me I have a computer full of software synths that I never use. This is a real inspiring piece. A great partnership of technology and art.

Thanks Andrew
I feel the same way. S2 is great at bringing new synths and sounds (from Logic, the 'net and beyond) to the factory floor for us to use and abuse. I'm exactly where you are: there are soooo many synths in Logic I haven't even scratched the surface with or even played around with for that matter. The volume of options is almost overwhelming. I could mess around with them all day and never make a decision about what to use.

"Conveyor Belts Activated..."
"...there is smoke, once again, curling from the chimney." Skunkwrx

I would opine that the above is a fortunate happening.. for after three listens this just grows more interesting to me. Production sounds and feels right through my headphones. Good work, skunks!

Quite unusual and very enjoyable, easy to listen to. Seems to be edging into the Captain Beefheart territory, - at least that's what I think - Very natural sounding production as well which is nice these days.

I dig the clav
It's always a fun instrument to play around with. This is a real cool tune. Lots of ear candy and I'm digging the progression. Very mechanical in a good way.
