The Jackals

Because of lack of ideas and free time it is increasingly difficult for me to post something.
Anyway, here's one I scribbled on iPad recently. Hope you guys will enjoy.

All instruments were played by me.
Speeches, car sound, and 'Ding' near the end are from freesound.org

Features reading of German poem "Shared Fate" by Schiller, with rough translation in the lyrics section.
It sounded nice, and was something I could relate to, especially the hair turing grey part. :)

Hey, Vic.
I don't know. This one might be ok, but for me making music feels like swinging in the dark nowadays. Maybe I should take it slow and play/listen to other artists' music more and do some study. Your support is always appreciated. Cheers.

Happy music, which doesn't really suggest jackals to me, but it still has a cool, Kraftwerky vibe that I like.

Actually, I thought about using something like "We can Work It Out" as a title, which would fit at least the second part of the song, but it felt too bland. Anyway, the jackals are hidden in there somewhere... Thank you for checking this one out.

A sonic technicolor coat that is woven together pretty nicely, Jay. The synths sound full and rich. Keep seeking the muse. Thanks, Peter.

Thank you
Peter, I am listening to some new music, and also playing piano again, which I haven't done in a long while. Hopefully I will get some inspiration.
Thank you for your comment and support. Appreciate much. Cheers.

Hum along
Very creative. I like it. I don't usually like tunes I can hum along with. So, this fills the bill hehe. Freesound is a great resource.

Hello, Les. Well, if I may say so, your music have had a really big influence on mine since I joined macjams. You've also introduced freesound to me, which is a great resource. Thank you for the listen and the kind comment. BTW, any chance you will re-activate your last post? I didn't have a chance to download it. :P Cheers.

Did a brief stint in a hobby band back in the 90s, and still do some occassional jam sessions with my old buddies. But I don't consider myself a musician or an artist. 'Hobbyist' might be the best word to describe me in macjams. Still, I try to m... [see more]
