Description
I sort of put a "band" together with guys from my DAW forums (Reaper).
I've posted this before, but this one sounds nothing like the original.
The original featured Gadzooks on guitar, and that version was more rocked out.
On this one, I added Synths (yeah, about time), and made some new arrangements.
Camerondye on bass
Carbon on wild guitars (Chapman Stick)
Me: normal guitars, XILs PolyK synth, AD2 Bufor-wannabe drum proggin, and vocals/desperate screams.

I
contained it as much as possible, Steve. I still should have put 'chaos' somewhere in the song title.

Oh, yes!
I love 7/4 and the burbling bass fits perfectly. It needs to be about five times longer!

Hey best
prog bud. I HAD to get Carbon to play his Chapman Stick on this. I know him from Reaper forums and have heard his own stuff where he uses it (AWESOME). We'd done one other of my tunes a cupla years ago, so I decided it was time to reunite.
He's like Stan: gives you lots to choose from and add to the song. Totally love that, and he's cool as hell on top.

It's a Stick?
I'd LOVE to have a go on one of those, but they are so expensive.

Unfortuantely, true.
But I'd sure love to hear you on one. Give Levin a run! Maybe some day?

Thanks PD
Have you ever tried anything from XILs Lab? They're the first synths I've tried (admittedly not that many) that actually got me excited to want to use--and even purchase--them. I got their PolyKB II and Syn'X and love em to death. If you have tried them, I'd like to know what you think.

What
made them stand out to me was that the tones are nice and earthy. Though they have the same variety as more modern or "bigger" synths, they don't sound as flashy/showy. Just good sounds with all the variety (I) could ever want. Even the arp's pretty creative.

Went
total left field with this version, Stan. Our version is not going anywhere, but I just had to hear how Carbon's Chapman sounded it on it. I tried combining both of you, but that was just too, too much, it's pretty jam packed as is. So I just went with Carbon alone.

Rise of the machines prog. Love how the bass drives the song and the drums sit on top with their own creative energy. Wild and untamed but all the better for it. Thanks, guys.

Very cool, very grooving work. It rocks, but also feels funky and fusiony. Great choice of players and sounds. I really like your vocal acrobatics on this one too. This is a fun listen - 3 minutes and it's over so quick! Gotta hit play again - enjoyed!

Hey Sig
I've always admired the Chapman type guitar tapping. I got *really* luck and found someone that not only could afford one, but is damned good at playing it on top. I asked for unconventional and Carb delivered. Thx for the cool comment.

Thanks Chris
yeah, I loved that bass trk back when Cam first sent it. Little did he know how it would turn out at the time. The only thing in the song at he first played to it was drums, my guide guitar, and some different vocals.

Love the swirling feel to this. Very cool vocal treatment adds interest. That little off-beat drum and bass line are too freakin cool......Much enjoyed !!

Lots of power here - plenty going on. I like the what you do at 1:33 - adds variety. Interesting sounds throughout. The bass is impressive. Fine collaboration!
