Hello My Friend


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
"Hello My Friend" is an exploration of three basic components: A stop beat rhythm, improvised, mic-ed piano, and improvised vocoded vocals. I started with the beat, rapped out the vocal after an upsetting phone call from a family member that only ever seems to care about what I can do for her. Then I jammed out a few piano lines and cut and pasted them into a cool grove. Lastly I used a vocoder to adjust the vocal pitch to work with the piano. Loops three times with minor variations and boom. Funky little track. Would appreciate macjammers thoughts!

Great
Love the jittering piano and vocoder. Works really well. Your production is crystal clear too. I'm suprised you don't get more traffic to your stuff - it's great.

Production
Interestingly I miced my digital piano with a sensheiser e series stage mic to get that sound. Also that jittering is a result of a rhythm perfectly filter that is shifting the vocal in 1/8th note chuncks to the closest 1/8th beat. The result is that neat stutter. Glad you enjoyed that, I think I wasn't participating enough to get some of my tracks noticed.

Dustin was wearing a Twizzlers t-shirt the night we met. I thought he looked interesting so I asked him to light my cigarette. We talked for all of 15 minutes before we crossed the subject of music, that we both did and would, and so it went. Ther... [see more]
