Wolf Pack on a Flow - collaboration by ic42 and Daug

Description
notes from hakucho:
it is winter. there is breath. it flows in the forest. the white fur is hidden in the trees. it moves slowly toward the heart. the heart beats fast. it runs. the white fur moves slowly. it will always catch the heart, no matter how fast the heart beats. the white fur never stops hunting. it is dangerous. it is beautiful. it is the flow of the forest.

it is computer-generated music of wolframtones. it is altered to sound of slow crystal winter. the flow is increased. it is now a wolf pack. this new version of music has become so much more, because of a collaboration. daugrin has added the call of the wolf to this, with many new layers of music.

Notes from Daug:  
IC42's musicianship is unique... this process uses algorithms along with human intervention to create bold new music.  The original Flow (here) is a crystal like icy flame.
 My work here reveals the population of the unique world IC42 created. I hope you find it interesting. Please, investigate the other material posted here.  Maybe you can figure out how he does this stuff and explain it to me...
By the way, he's very easy to work with. He gets crazy as I do when new things are discovered... Thanks Hakucho, this was real fun...

it is
perfection...it is a new thing...

it is collaboration
perhaps it is the next best thing to perfection. it always seems that my music is never complete. there is always a version number on each piece. however, with this piece, it feels complete. daugrin added a final touch. perhaps that is a kind of perfection. thank you for enjoying this new thing. 0x0

It is, It was...
It was a couple other things too, see Hakucho's note below. Perfection would have been nice, I'm just glad it breathed when we got finished...

Very cool
Loved this sonic dog sled ride. Crystalline tones
and textures, but somehow it breathes fire, not ice. Cool collab. Great post.

hot and cold
such enjoyment was achieved sending this across the snow to daugrin, then back, then back again. each journey gave it more life. it is now complete and ready to share. thank you for journeying with us and the pack. 0x0

nature ...great landscape of music here ...good

it is a focused way of life. focused on survival. there is joy in the howl, the wolf song. but much time is spent staying alive. perhaps you know very well of this style of existence. it is wished that you have more time for wolf song. 0x0

different is good
it is exciting to try new things. often, new things are much better than the same old things. we learn every day. a collaboration with daugrin teaches me so many new things. they are wonderful. this music now surpasses my own skill and knowledge. daugrin added tooth and fur and howl to this. perhaps we can listen to your new path soon? 0x0

Of course B, I made this comment already on your Ugly Dog thing. I don't think Hakucho and I will ever make amazing pop music that helps and heals. That is work for you my friend!

compelling magnatone
it is your music that compels. it requires extra help to add to ic42 music, and now it is compelling as well. there is much thank you sent to daugrin. he offered many sounds for me to arrange. i could add howls at the start and end. it is now complete. thank you for listening. it is a long journey from this music to your music. 0x0

the wolves excel at being present, but unseen. they wait, watch, and hunt. they also love and play. they are much like we are. thank you for listening to this. 0x0

Presence
I agree chief, my job was to add the spirits, the presence is my tele "Wolf". There was no way to get around using that instrument on this track once I "heard" the wolf cries on the original IC42 track.

Full of anticipation
It could be that your works are never finished because they are so suggestively open. They make people think, and with thought comes new ideas. Nice additions by Daug. Much enjoyed.

Daugrin said 3498 days ago (July 19th, 2009)
Never Finished
There is a point during alchemy when spirit changes and becomes something else. It is possible to manipulate the life out of a piece of music trying to arrange it to perfection. Hopefully Hakucho and I avoided the pitfalls of the process and ended up with a lively piece.
Imho we were successful...

sounds like some straight up movie-quality stuff, just the strings and some of the light horns can be worked on to create a better sound. but the bells do remind me of a crystal winter, very beautiful indeed

Hi Preference
Thanks for dropping by and listening. I disagree, this flow needs no more stuff. It needs less. Less is much more here. By the way, there is a horn line already...

mind movie
it is a desire to create a movie in your mind. daugrin added tele-wolf calls and horns and strings. there were many tracks added by the larger wolf pack. it is difficult to keep them all in line. perhaps it is the final mix that requires more time and work. it is my fault for the final mix. it is a learning process. i will attend to the horns as you suggest. it is good that you enjoy the effect. thank you for listening. 0x0

Wolframtones
This has gone from chilled, untouchable beauty to absolute organic-ness. I could feel the heat from the wolf's body in contrast to the icy cold surroundings. Pure brilliance brought about by a combined effort of two very talented artists. Just beautiful - make it longer please.

a journey begins for bud
it is a pleasure to introduce you to a tool. please see http://tones.wolfram.com/

it is software to generate music via fractal algorithms. it is one tool of many in the ic42 experiment lab. often these tools create the seeds of ideas. with much pruning and water, a terrible thorn bush or a beautiful tree grows. thank you for visiting the forest. 0x0

Hi Bud

Glad you stopped by. Wolfrantones also come from my tele "Wolf". I make 'um up by using the tone and volume pot together with microphonic pups, in combination with purple tubes in a way Dauged Fender amp. Being part wolf myself really helps...Lol

I could hear this completed collab the first time I heard the original flow. I was amazed at the structure and tone of IC42s piece. The components I made came very quickly, the wolf vocals were the last, I have a "Dauged" Fender amp that makes wolf sounds jump out of my Tele "Wolf"...
