Solid Soda



 Genre: Dub

Get Flash to see this player.

This piece is an assignment from my MIDI class that I was forced to put together using Digital Performer. I've been doing battle with this program since the beginning of time so I'm glad the end result sounds more or less what I intended to make. The piece was created with sounds from a module and keyboard. The sound banks are crappy on both so I had to do some digging to come up with a nice blend of instruments. I hope you enjoy.

Every track you post makes perfect musical sense. All layers and elements are well integrated and placed, and nothing is ever superfluous (and yes, that's how you spell that word, checked it myself :) Sound is clean and balanced and I didn't get the idea that you had to struggle finding decent samples - with the variety of sound libraries it's usually the other way around - great sound, little musical talent to back it up. Too harsh? In your case you can produce a relevant track even with slightly dated synths, that's talent.

Anyways, always cool listening to a new post of yours and fun to compare your work from school with Einar's, since you both go to music school with similar awesome musical chops but completely different curriculum.

Sometimes not having the perfect setup forces you to work harder to make it all come together. As always, great stuff!

Very nice beat structures and changes around the sounds. It's pretty cool how you got the sound of the instruments to almost sound like they are breathing, like there was a pulsing wave going through the beats and notes. Very interesting.

Ill! is the word...
And, what Parichayaka said. Though, how ya made my mind make happy juices from a sense that it made of it, I dunno... But it happened Som'em bout magic... That Parachuty guy, is that really a person's name AND, I wonder how ya say it...

Curious: Howda hell to you make sounds heard to be speeding up and slowing down? It does feel like what a ride might be like in the workings of a G'kiD, but I'm thinkn ya had some help...

It makes even more sense when it's on that infinite loopy thing on itunes.

Good to hear you're still cookn it up, Sir G'kiD.

Ya know, we have a tune waiting fer some action... I know, I owe you the makings of a timepiece making sounds.... Yeah yeah... Me

Thanks for this post, the voicings here were compelling and the smears really added to the piece, they gave a texture that was fresh and compelling. I was listeing for more harmonic invention when it parked. Well recorded and I like your mixing as well. I will be back for more.
