This is a recent mix with elements that may not come across very musical or 'proper', hence the genre 'experimental'.

I don't know where it fits into music, if at all. It may be 7 minutes of pure todge but I hope that someone will let me know what they think about the different aspects of the piece.

I'm also up for removing the piece if it is too diverse or unrepresentative of even experimental music.

I like the parts where there is only "bass" " drums" and sounds .
I find the chords are less interesting .
Just the sounds and backing together would be "experimental" or "ambient" or "noise" .

Hi Henri....
Thanks for your feedback.

There is a lot about this piece that, arranged differently, would be better. I agree with what you said.

I may put together a more workable mix later in the year.

Thanks for stopping by.

Take care.

...this may be, Paul, but it is the best todge I've heard. You know your way around your sounds, that's for sure...every one carefully chosen and carefully placed. As for music, you raise an interesting question about the essence of music -- of what is it comprised -- what, in fact, is it? Given the appropriate pictures/programme, this composition is just as much "music" as a ballroom waltz. You may not be getting a lot of folks listening or commenting, but please don't get discouraged. You are recording some sui generis compositions that are intriguing, inventive, and compelling.

Hi Paul....
Your comments made me laugh out loud!! They were exactly what the mix had coming to it. I hadn't thought of the mix as decent todge, just todge. Your words give me hope for some of my more adventurous pieces.

Maybe I'll just upload one of these per year!!! Ha ha!!!

The main reason that I uploaded it was that the arrangement and sound were not that bad, just the content!! The silences between the notes/noise were perfect, and I do hope that people remember the silence. It's the silence that makes the piece stand out, or at least the gaps between the notes that are heard.

That's part of my answer to your question of what music is. Another part of what music is has something to do with how the listener is emotionally, whilst they listen. This has a profound effect upon the way a piece is interpreted and may evoke memories that are good or bad. The music does not contain the memories, it is just a trigger or catalyst. The music just 'is'. Open to any listeners interpretation of the moment.

Take care.

Hi Sir Bass....
You're very kind.

Thanks for stopping by to listen. This was a bit of a multirhythmic experimental track, as you probably found out.

I hope that this is the furthest 'bad' that I can be without appearing insane!!

Take care.

Hi Smokey....
It's good that you found something in the mix that didn't make your ears hurt!! Or that didn't make them hurt too much.

Thanks for being brave enough to listen.

Take care.

Bit o todgery
but sorta like the movement of it. You always downplay your stuff - but it's always stimulating!

Hi Daniel...
Stimulating is good, eh??

This piece was just an experiment that sounded not too bad, quality-wise. Content-wise it is crap.

Thanks for your comments. Always good to hear from you.

Take care.

Cool heist flick
I like the way your sounds envelope on this Paul.
Smooth and sinister.
Beautiful background to a set up to a cool heist flick.

Hi Charlie....
The sounds and most of the production, individually, are OK as far as I'm concerned but I just wasn't happy with the whole mix. It was too disjointed or 'diverse' for my taste. I know what you mean about the sound track option but I think this will never be joined to film.

Thanks for stopping by.

Take care.

I'm very happy that you like this music.

The way that I produce my music is sometimes a mystery to me also!!

I will be making a document describing how I make some of my music and uploading it for people to access, within the next week or so, You can maybe look at that and see how some of my sounds are produced.

Take care.
