A sturdy troll through an electronic wilderness
Great electronic effects, infectious groove. Liked it.
Check out my latest song called Gears

This is really good!
I wouldn't have known it was a loop-based tune if you hadn't told me.
It's brilliantly arranged, and just goes to show how good they can
sound in the hands of a skilled musician. Not surprisingly it's the bass
that really shines out ... you know exactly how to get the most warmth
and resonance from it.

It's a funny thing on MacJams how nobody ever goes back and listens
to your early songs. The MJ community is really missing out here!

Thanks Rebsie - during our chat last night I came back and had a listen too
and was pleasantly surprised. It's been a long while since I listened to this,
and it does stand up fairly well I guess.

you're holding back
Talk about deeply groovy. - Man Neil, I REALLY like this. Alot. Very
intellegent piece. I think that you should repost this so that everyone
will have a chance to hear it. I mean, don't do it while I have one
posted. LOL - Oh, must of been my insecurities lurking about - This
great Neil. And you have the advantage of being able to jam some
guitar on this just to repost, but the way it is, I lyke it...

For as much as I've fiddled around w/ GB, I still have no clue as to how
you did this. No idea, not a single clue...

Thanks for the invite, it's one that I truly enjoyed and appreciate. - Cyd

Thanks Dion - a, for visiting and b, for such a nice comment. This was
posted (I just realised) on the 10th anniversary of my dad passing away -
funny the things you notice isn't it?
From memory, this is simply the building of a basic theme through adding
various loop elements to reach some sort of musical conclusion. I guess it
didn't get much of a look-in because I was an unknown name at the time
("what's a jiguma?" they asked)! I had planned to get a bluesy female vox on
this, but didn't know anyone with that sort of voice at the time - I do now,
and just might get a vocal version up once I write some lyrics. The "avec
vous" part is just a JP2 loop I think. I didn't use any effects because at that
stage I didn't even know they existed in GB.
An exercise for the future!

Jiguma doing loop music...Inconceivable! But here it is!

Very cool groove. So this is how you left the starting gate. Man you've
come a long ways. But even back here your developed compositional
sense is fully in evidence.

I love doing loop music with my son, but just like you I had to graduate to
live guitar (and also in my case---keys) once I got the hang of GB.

Nice first effort.

Thanks for having a listen Mike - I was so lacking in confidence in my playing
and singing at this stage (especially my singing!!!!!!!), hence the loops. I
enjoy coming back to this.

Comments from the anniversary post
Posted again after my first 12 months - here are the comments:

First of all:
Authored by: Einarus on Tue, 9 May 2006 05:35:51 -0500
Happy anniversary!
It's always fun to listen to people's early tracks and see how they've
changed and/or developed with time. You've changed a whole lot,
apparently! :)

First of all:
Authored by: jiguma on Tue, 9 May 2006 17:45:17 -0500
Thanks for listening Einar. This song is what I did when I had no
confidence in my ability to play real instruments and sing. This seemed
to work OK, so I started singing and playing for real again. When you've
had 25 years away from music, the loops are a safe way to test the
water again.
Neil

Impact and easing.
Authored by: Tadashi Togawa on Tue, 9 May 2006 07:18:27 -0500
Is this originator jiguma?
Or,
Is it new jiguma?
I was surprised.
Very interesting sound and composition.
Your different one side.
The code progress is wonderful.
I came to want to play the guitar.

By the way,
Does kangaroos fight?

Impact and easing.
Authored by: jiguma on Tue, 9 May 2006 14:27:53 -0500
Thanks Tadashi, you are very welcome to play guitar on this (or
anything else) anytime! The malekangaroos fight in the mating season
- trying to look good for the girls : )
Neil

Oh man, I so glad that you posted this
Authored by: Cydniko on Tue, 9 May 2006 15:41:43 -0500
I think that I owe just one copy and paste Neil, so here are my words
from the original posting of this tune - I think that everyone should
consider posting a tune that got overlooked before they became more
well known here - I think that this would be a great idea... Thanks, Neil
you're holding back

Thanks for the idea of reposting this Dion, and for transferring the
comment across - I appreciate your encouragement and appreciation
as always. Are you in France yet?
Neil

Oh man, I so glad that you posted this
Authored by: Cydniko on Tue, 9 May 2006 19:12:56 -0500
Yes Neil, I have been to Paris; I measured up a two story flat, (to
produce some pretty drwgs for a client/friend) I painted the city for
two nights while I was there (I used an awful lot of painting) and then
to NYC twice, and I am home w/ plans to leave again tomorrow, or
Thursday (I don't know what today is) to head to Washington DC for
two days and then back again - Would you like for me to drop off a few
words; possibly a song to our head cowboy while I'm in DC...

Do you think that I have a dependency problem, here...

Get up

Oh man, I so glad that you posted this
Authored by: jiguma on Tue, 9 May 2006 19:40:17 -0500
I suspect you know what I'd like you to pass on to your (/our) fearless
leader! Painting Paris - must have used a big brush!
Neil

Happy anniversary, Neil!
Authored by: Ejh on Tue, 9 May 2006 17:37:51 -0500
Now, see, this is really neat. I actually got into MacJams with the notion
in the back of my head that I'd end up making tunes more like this...
new and different from anything I'd played around with before...

You actually did it...

Now I want to hearing the morphing between this and what we've come
to know as the jiguma (prounounced 'ji-GOO-ma) sound... What will
that sound like, precious?...we wonders, yes, we wonders...

Very cool, Neil...

Ed

Happy anniversary, Neil!
Authored by: jiguma on Tue, 9 May 2006 17:52:27 -0500
Thanks for dropping by for the history lesson Ed. After this little ditty, I
posted "I Have Wandered" which had a vocal (of sorts), 12 string (real),
bass (real) and mandolins, electric guitars and a few other things
(unreal). If you decide to listen to it, I'd suggest the second or third
version - the first is a tad embarassing! I did a few similar to "Avec
Vous" - "Defenestration" and another one at http://
www.macjams.com/song/12917 as my alter ego (who got bored and
only posted one song!).I enjoyed doing these, but find the real playing
more satisfying,
Neil

Happy MJ Anni-birthday!
Authored by: The Conductor on Wed, 10 May 2006 01:31:56 -0500
Yeah---a lot of us have come a very long way Neil. It's fun to hear your
creative energy in search of an outlet here. Good stuff. Of course, I
much prefer the new, improved and Lemon (or is it Kiwi?) fresh Jiguma
of today!

Many happy Mac-returns of the day!

Maybe not ........
Authored by: jiguma on Sat, 13 May 2006 18:23:44 -0500
Maybe this didn't get much of a look because nobody liked it much.
Oh well, the historical significance is now past and I can relegate to the
archives.
Thanks for commenting everyone.
Now, back to some jiguma music.
Neil

Shocker!!
Okay, I meant what I just posted about coming back to an earlier post
of yours, but I really didn't expect to find this. It's hard to picture you
listening to dance music, let alone composing it, but you're full of
surprises, mister. This is very danceable and nicely produced.
annalia said 4155 days ago (July 4th, 2006)
electronica sucktion
now here comes the up-beat.
thought i was gonna hear some french vocals here.
don't know who you were with but sounds like it was a strange experience. :)

i'll be back to listen to more of your tunes as able.

p.s. sorry not to have made it by here sooner but i've been busy dancin' round in the funny forums.

Thanks for coming back in time Dee!
I really enjoyed doing this one - have tried to put in some guitars and such recently, but it sounds wrong some how.

Glad you enjoyed it.

I am a fan too. Great piece. Lots to listen to. the sounds and textures are a delight and when you listen hard you can pick them out, but they blend into a wall of delirious sound.

This is perfect
for my dance style, which is to wander all through the dance floor with eyes closed in trance. And this was the first?! Already pro composition and production. The bass lifts everything when it starts.

PS
I just remembered but if you're wanting to say "With You" in french, the correct translation would be "Avec Toi". Nice song btw!

jiguma said 1796 days ago (December 18th, 2012)
Oui
Avec toi is the informal (some may say "intimate") way of saying "with you". "Avec vous" is the more formal, more usual phrase, unless speaking to a very close friend or a child.
