Lots of arpegios!
Quite a nice new age song!

I would have loved to hear the piano piece that you used as the introduction within the main body of the song. It was a nice pattern. The closest that I heard was an echo in the guitar in the middle of the song.

I prefer to feel a bit more motion in the implied harmony. In particular, your use of the same note twelve times as a motif, and your arpeggios tended to be used a bit too much.

But you wrote a sweet piece of electronica, and I look forward to hearing more of your work!

i wish had this talent
i just can't seem to make things like this.
i think this is sounds like hope. in my mind at least. it also sounds like heated noise and then a pause of all sensation except the feeling of lips on flesh.
now i feel like words should bubble out of this piece.

the poet in me.
sorry.

i think is really good. i like the different texture.
also just past halfway when it quiets up...this almost sounds like rememberence and touching ones self as the mind froths the body into a heat of memory.

Likewise. I would love to hear your poetry (which seems to capture the
essense of this song) alongside the music. I may try to get some vocals to
accompany this. But then again, I kind of need a break from this one. ;)

Ray Lynch
Nice track. Reminds me of Celestial Soda Pop by Ray
Lynch. It has a bouncy happy feel with spiritual
undertones. Like a happy, smiling Buddha. I think the
repetition you use is well within the genre; if there is
anything I would alter its your use of melody: I'd use
one, instead of substituting melody with groove and
arpeggio-chord progression. And then the idea of theme
and variation could evolve with greater interest and
intimacy. But this is a well produced track.

Very well produced!
This is a great track and it has terrific production values. I
really like the unpredictable-ness of it and the sounds
you've chosen are very interesting.

Many hours
I can so hear the love you poured into this one. Not only are there a lot of carefully considered details but each is delicately mixed just so. Its hard to make electronica emotive, but this piece is a good example of the possibilities. (8-8-7-7)

A scenery...
I like the way it is set up, and the "softness through
sadness" of the themes. I'm gonna rush to listen to your
other track !!

Read the blurb,
Listened to the track (love those big synth washes at the
beginning, had a real Roland sound to them I thought,
odd because you are on a Korg...) And just started staring
at the edge of my powerbook screen. All this electronic
music just blurs the man/machine boundaries so much
that I really got into the curvy corners...Completely sober
too (unusual for me).

God, this is a SEXY computer.....

Ahem, anyway, subliminal in a real "prickly heat" kind of a
way.

Disturbingly good....

Read the blurb,
"Disturbingly Good".... Now that's a compliment! And that was the intention.
You've made my day--all of you--thank you for the compliments. These
songs I've created have saved me thousands of dollars in therapy costs.

rich and varied
You've got a lot of good ideas percolating on this track!
Very well-produced too. I did find the drum track just a
tiny bit too loud towards the end, but this is nitpicking.

I agree with Tobin about using a definitive melody instead
of the arpeggios. Perhaps use chipuni's suggestion of
using that beginning piano theme, which was quite nice!

Great electronica piece!

P.S. You bring up an interesting point about music being
"theraputic" (instead of lying on the psychiatrist's couch).

Listening to people's songs is like listening to their brains!
That's one of the main reasons I'm enjoying MacJams so
much.

Nice Changes!
Very Nice! I like the changes you arranged in this song. Many ambient/ electronic songs seem to not have enough changes to keep them interesting. I can easily get lost in this tune. A good focusing song while painting or creating any form of visula art!

Running My Fingers Through It
After I ran my fingers through it, I felt it...and your inner
beauty. I see you in there...I'm not sure if I should be
happy or sad. I'm imagining how it is, how upredictable,
unexplainable life and love is. How emotional and yet how
desirable feelings of anything are. Good or bad it's all
better than C, it's all better than blah, it's all better than
being mute and feeling numb.
Paul_T said 5428 days ago (July 12th, 2004)
This is my life!
This gives me the impression of someone trying to make forward progress with all these diversions/ interruptions getting in the way. Very cool! I second (or third) the "musicmaking as cheap therapy" notion. I can't tell you how depressed I would feel if I wasn't creating stuff every night after the kids go to bed -- even if it's crap!!!

Gobsmackingly Good
I so enjoyed this piece...
I love the layers that describe feelings and it is the sort of
track one can get inside. (weird but I hope you
understand).
More more more. :)
I also fourth or fifth the therapy.
I feel the creative outpouring of emotion coming out of
so many artists on this site. This track was a real
pleasure..

I'd be very interested at some point, in working with you
(if you dont mind)

Interesting story
"behind the music", but I simply don't get that from it at
all. Seems to space age and techno for anything so earthy
a topic as lust. So ignoring that fact for a moment, the
song makes a good entry into its stated genre. Nice
transitions. Your keyboard has some great sounds!

...as I just listened to the "remix" version by you and
Moodee. The two songs have different personalities to be
sure. And I like both equally. Very cool.

Did the same thing--just now.... agree with pooey. And I wish that I could make out the lyrics on the other one a bit more, we have a wonderful home studio, but macjams is on my puny computer with no other than internal speakers....posty pleeeze! oh, and by the way--me likey!----M

Well thanks for the compliments! I didn't realize people would come back to
listen to this "old" song after hearing the wonderful Moodee Remix. Next
time I talk to him, I'll encourage Moodee to post the lyrics. They're pretty darn
nifty if I do say so myself. (I think I just did say so!)

I'm feeling alot of New Wave influence in here besides the
Electronica and New Age. A damned good performance all
around, I actually gave it 10's all around!
thetiler said 5250 days ago (January 6th, 2005)
Very nice tune!!!
Like the bouncing back and forth in the earphones for
sure. Loads of nice ideas and I mean loads.

Your picture is just outstanding! To me very, very fitting
for the tuning. It really gets your imagination going. I get
a lot of inspiration from this whole package.

I am glad I came over here.

Thanks for the adventure.
You sure are all over that keyboard!

seem to underestimate the emotional range of a
synth.

Solid trancey grooves. I like how you keep the synths varied

Miss Chaos,

As usual, nifty tune you've got here. I agree with chipuni
that there could be a bit more motion, but I think you've
got some inventive production. I like how you panned the
tracks, and the cuts from left to right are just plain fun to
listen to. Well done all in all.

Yeah
I think it's time I go in a remix some of your songs and make them gritty.
Clairvoyant is almost finished. I am not rushing the ending however
because I want to listen to it for a while to decide what else to add or
subtract.

Cheers!

Smooth and yummy . . .
Like a good ice cream. The panning effects are a nice touch. It changes
it up a little and keeps it interesting. I'd like to possibly collab with you
if you're interested. I know that my techno-y, fast-paced tracks are no
match for your beautiful, soothing melodies and soundscapes though.
I'm just very impressed with your work. You've managed to get your
sounds in GarageBand to sound nothing like the sounds in
GarageBand. I'm jealous. : ) Take care and please let me know re: a
collab. Peace!

Articolata in una maniera eccezionale.

risuona,
e ritorna per poi ripartire in una miriade di note.

technical question
sweet song.

not that i'll ever use this information, but since I was a pre-teen I wondered how a sound in a song can jump from left to right on a set of earphones. May I ask how you did that? Do you split the track and adjust the balance? We were just talking about balancing earlier, too : )

MissChaos said 4538 days ago (December 19th, 2006)
hey estille
I didn't think anyone went back to these old songs of mine. Actually, I was very, very new to Garageband when I recorded this tune (which probably explains the lack of audio quality!). But the panning effect was done straight from my synthesizer and not GarageBand. Since I can use my synth as either a MIDI controller or as an Audio instrument (creating wav forms the way you do with your guitar and voice), I can use the built-in sequencers and effects instead of using GarageBand's. That way, I have more control and more sophisticated panning (the back-and-forth you described). Does this help? It's really a matter of sliding the audio back and forth between the left and right channels. You can do it easily with the "Track Pan" slider in Garageband. :-) Thanks for stopping by!
