I’m confused and surprised. It’s…well, it’s different. Constructively, unless your intention is to baffle, you might want to work on a coherent flow. As it is, it seems disjointed. I don’t want, in any way, to impede your creativity, Rusty. You obviously have some talent, you just need to hone it a little.January 14, 2008 at 5:40 am #4643
It’s really supposed to be a little strange, but I’ve posted it a couple different places, and I’ve heard that the beginning and end are too long. What would I do to make it flow better?
Also, confused and surprised? Why?January 14, 2008 at 3:41 pm #4637robParticipant
Confused about the song, surprised at the talent. It’s not a secret that our collective intelligence is higher than, say, any shift at any given McDonald’s, but I was surprised at the technical prowess, I guess.
As far as flow goes…well, intro, verse, verse, chorus, verse, chorus, bridge, chorus. It’s probably why I have so many unfinished songs myself. These different ideas didn’t go together, and I couldn’t complete the entire thought, so they were left abandoned. For an example of good flow in instrumental songs, I would look to none other than Aphex Twin. His body of work is daunting, but there are many good songs in there, not only with style and weirdness, but you can see the somewhat classically trained order of his songs.January 14, 2008 at 4:21 pm #4645thx_1227Participant
Hmmm, I can’t get the link to work. I’ll try again in a bit…January 14, 2008 at 11:37 pm #4642
I don’t know why the link isn’t working. It’s working for me.January 15, 2008 at 4:26 am #4641
Ha ha, okay, listening to Come to Daddy. Now I get “I WANT YOUR SOUL”January 15, 2008 at 8:41 pm #4644thx_1227Participant
Is that Jerry screaming at the end?January 16, 2008 at 12:47 am #4640
No, but I wish it was…February 15, 2008 at 11:01 pm #4639
Alright, working on a new song. I’ve been working on this for a month or so, and I haven’t been able to find the right way to start it.
This is what I’ve got so far:
What I’m trying to capture here is the feeling of being in a cyberpunk cityscape, a hectic maze. In particular, a kind of rave-y sound. If this were to become some sort of album, Entir would follow Possesion, because Possesion is a sort of a bridge to that city- actually, it’s probably good for me to explain the whole concept for this album.
If this were to happen the way I would like it to, this would be a kind of concept album about a person’s journey from a place that is far away from civilization, to a futuristic city filled with hectic movement, loud sounds, and an overwhelming since of machinery, with no humanity left except for this person who has come from a place not contaminated by technology.
So, Possesion is what I see as the second track, and Entir’s the third. The first would be a more natural sounding song, and Entir would be its complete opposite.
Anyway, I need a little assistance starting this. No idea where to go with it.
