I originally posted this as it's own topic, but I was told to do otherwise. I figured this is the best place to showcase my band without breaking typically agreed upon rules.

It's really difficult for me to generalize what genre this kind of music should be classified as there's influences from many different ones. However, I would say math-rock and post-punk is the most consistent theme. I'm mostly hoping to manage to distribute this music to as many people as I can and maybe even get a bit of feedback.

Unfortunately my work firewall doesn't allow me to access newgrounds or youtube, so the last post I can comment on is the http://soundcloud.com/wildblackyonder music! I'm personally a fan of this folk/chill sound, I tend to listen to this kind of music more often when I'm reading something out in my backyard.

Hey, this is pretty fun stuff!

Nice bass tone. Fun, jerky rhythms. Cool! Post-punk fits, I think.

Thanks Robert! Fun and fucking with the audience is our two biggest themes for that album. Our next one is going to be a play on Entropy. I think it'll appeal to a very few hardcore Math-rock fans in this world, darker heavier and far more complicated than I thought possible.

I can't wait to see if anyone else has an opinion on this shit!

Manhattans in Carolina is nice and smooth, the vocals in merrily and oblivious aren't great, I think that might be the mic.

Beautifully smooth guitars throughout.

Now Kilroy the great is on. Again, the vocals are not fantastic, but the chords are beautiful.

What program is that? It sounds like you're just using very basic synthesis techniques (as might be used on an old sound chip). But the program itself looks pretty basic. I was expecting a VSTi in a DAW. This is pretty cool, though.

I did not know you could bend notes like that in "chiptunes"! I guess I just never listened closely enough to my NES. Anyway, it sounds cool as hell. I like that very brief almost "fugue" section after the "bass solo" at the end. Good voice leading too, and equally tempered thirds just seem to sound so good in 8bit musicland.

Here is one of the bands I play bass in right now - very "21st century" jazz fusion, but we take on some classic tunes:

Soooooo sweeeeeet! I wish I could do stuff like that. Do you guys play it well live? If so I'd pay to see you...

Quality recordings! I like them all. Well, the live raps weren't my cup of tea, but other than that I liked it all. And it sounds like you're hilarious live. :)


I added a few songs since I last posted here... I got a pop filter and it makes a big difference. :) The Devil Won is just random (was going to be acoustic folksy... dunno what happened there), Blanket of Black Umbrellas has a middle section that I'm really proud of, and Attic is a creepy sad slow one.

I love the vocals Adam! The harmonies have a nice, clear sound to them. I especially like "Attic" - although to be honest, sme of your music sounds too... pop singer/songwriter for me, which while not being a neccessarily a bad thing, it just isn't the sound I dig. You have a nice sonority to your stuff, though, especially the vocal harmonies. Sometimes (especially when you get 'edgier') you almost have an early Incubus-esque vibe to you.

I have a rough demo for a song my yet to be 'Facebook official' prog/power metal band made (I'm the bassist/lead vocalist/main songwriter), here it is. I wrote this piece in it's entirety, and it's probably one of the 'poppiest' pieces I've written - I tend to be a little out there with my writing style. The guitar solo isn't recorded yet, and all the guitar parts are recorded by our rhythm guitarist/other lead vocalist and I (if you listen you can hear one of the gallop sections is fingerstyle distorted guitar xP).

Sounds pretty cool!

Something tells me whoever mixed this was listening on something that doesn't reproduce stuff < 100 Hz well. Drums need a touch more low end impact (snare, kick and toms all) and bass could use a bit of taming in that area. Pads are a little loud relative to the guitars.

It's a very rough mix by me done entirely on a pair of listening quality headphones, it was done more to have the parts in my head completely remembered rather than to be listened to. :D It came out decently enough to where I think it *can* be listened to, but that was never the intent.

If I end up having to mix it myself (and hopefully I can do so in my friend's home studio that's equipped with some good monitors) I will keep that in mind. It probably doesn't help that the drums are just a run-of-the-mill soundfont instead of a real recorded drum set - I was rather unhappy with the kick and toms, although I couldn't really pinpoint it - thanks for the tips!

I'm not quite sure why, but I think the music would fit nicely as a Final Fantasy boss theme of some sort. I actually liked it. My main point of criticism is that around 1:10 it sounds slightly 'messy' for about ten to twenty seconds, and the same happens around 1:50 - this doesn't make it sound bad, per se, but it's not exactly my 'style' of music. Other than that, I liked it. :)

Recently, I've found a new favourite song: Passenger - Let Her Go. The singer has a nice, slightly non-refined voice, which I like. He also makes extensive use of the acoustic guitar and some more colorful instruments.

Of course, this means I'm going to listen it a thousand times over after which I will probably hate it. :mrgreen:

Maraki: As boXd said, the first bit is definitely boss-themey, and pretty cool. For my tastes, at least, either the guitar is too distorted/noisy or the drums are too clean (maybe both). The middle bit sounds like a completely different song to me: different beat, different vibe, and I'm not sure about the mix of grainy-distorted guitar and plucks (though I think that's more a matter of taste). The third bit sounds like a different song again, and the sound is well done there (very "save the world" sorta thing). So basically, each part of the song has an interesting and well made-sound (minus mixing and such), but it doesn't really seem to fit together to me.

I haven't made anything in a while, and what I have made is really derpy (I'm learning to handle the DAW, but even after a year or two I still can't get my ideas onto paper/screen properly), but I'll put this here, and also this. All electronic stuff, but more recently I've been doing EDM, because EDM drums are easier :P

Sounds great! I wonder if the tempo should be a touch slower for "flow". It sound like it could be a bit more relaxing and "flowy" if you dropped the tempo a bit. What tempo is it now?

Ulterior has some really fat synth sounds. Nice.

At current the tempo is 165bpm, and it was supposed to be a proper liquid DnB song (like this (also mine!)) but that quite come through. Dropping the tempo to 150 and dimming the hi-hats sounds a bit different, and dropping it to 100 makes it an entirely different song, but in some ways an improvement :D Ulterior's synths are nice, but the drums are crummy :P

For some reason, the tempo on light feels "right" but on "flow" it seems too fast. Obviously it's all subjective. "Light" is very nice.

You could drop the lead parts back a few milliseconds (to taste) and make the pads down more, and perhaps humanize the drums.

There is a lot of worh behind it ind I found the rythmes very interesting. I love the manner it switch from one tune to another", and the exploration of different styles in just one track. And, is "F# A# infinity" a reference to Godspeed you ! Black Emperor ?

I first click on the link and listed to the tracks. What I thought was : "ow the bass is pretty cool", and then I notice you're the bassist. All I can say is congrats.
This music reminds me also Keziah Kones in some ways.

I'll finish it by sharing one of my songs, called "Damayale Stories" (made in an acoustic style).

Spoiler:
Great start. I like the timbre. Feels a bit Spanish, somehow. Quite sorrowful.

Vocals come in, everything is very sad suddenly. Are there lyrics being sung? I can't fully tell. It feels like an extra beat is being added at the end of every bar... It's a bit disorientating.

The continually thickening and thinning texture is a bit confusing.

In a sorta chorus bit, the textures more consistent now very nice.

Instrumental. Very cool.

Breakdown. I love the way the rhythms reform and then disintegrate in this piece.

Halfway through. I'm getting used to the 5 bar phrases, it's interesting, but having the whole texture break down draws to much attention to them.

The instrumentation is just awesome. I love the sound and feel of the piece. You really use the accompaniment.

6:06. Horns are nice. I can't believe it's gone on for this long, it hasn't felt like it. You keep things original somehow. The style is very strange, sort of Spanish, sort of folk, sort of western, but also a bit electronic. It really feels like plains and vast open countryside.


I love the style of it. Am going to listen to a few more of your things now.

(BTW How do you make the music? What program do you use?)

Yes, the structure is a bit irregular on the verse : it is 5:5:5:6. On the other hand, the structure of the chorus is simple : 4:4:4:4.

I'm actually working on a new song "Hay Roses", where the structure is more regular (groups of 4 bars, 6 times per bar). But there's one part where the rythme is broken : the number of times per bar becomes : 11:10:11:11:10:11:11:10:11:11:10:12

I use FLStudio 10, and I mix the samples with DirectWave. I use samples I have collected from freesound.

I like chiptunes. For me, what you called "chaotic", I understand this like "handsome". There are some parts that are beautiful and I wish to here this piece with classical instruments (like piano, or clavinet).
I have listened your track "We died", and I found this quite amazing. The crowd noise on the background makes it more dynamic.

I've got to say, that's quite excellent. I am certainly not a connoisseur of classical music, but that is certainly a good piece piecewise (as a whole it... wanders a bit, but each section has drawing melodies and the whole piece is linked together). I can see some of those classical elements being used in a contemporary piece, in fact (might actually examine it myself for useful elements).

Unfortunately, I can't say I managed to make my way through this. I have no doubt that you have a good grasp of musical and melodical elements, but the timing threw me out too much (It's kinda what I get for listening to so much 4-to-the-floor/EDM music :P)

I haven't music'd recently, but I might as well post this, and see what people think. One person mentioned that, while the piano element was fun, it was lacking in travel, and I'd say he's right.

I really like Voekoevaka's piece! I love all of the acoustic instrumentation and meter changes and rhythmic changes - I feel like you handled said changes with panache and flair! I wish the vocals were more crisp and up front, I think maybe the enunciation could be better or maybe you could mix it with *more* sibilance, or just more overall top-end frequencies. I also think you could've either shortened the piece or thrown in a key change - it was (and I mean this in the nicest way possible) hard to listen to the whole thing, and I like to listen to 30 minute songs when I have the time (i'm a big Dream Theater fan).

And Chaoszerom, I thought your piece was pretty cool, albeit simple and repetitive (but I feel that way about virtually *all* electronic music in that sort of style - I guess its a genre thing). I like the sounds and samples you used, and I thought they way you took the overused 'filter on drums' thing and did a few interesting things with it, like using it to get the drums out of the way of a solo, etc.

Now to share some of my things... I hope it goes better than last time xP I'm going to share two things, hopefully I'm not breaking too many rules!

http://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/4867 ... Shadow.mp3 - This tune is a sort of prog-rock tune that's still in the making - it's demoed here with electric instruments, but I think you guys and gals can get the gist of it.

http://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/486705/Unseen.mp3 - This one is a highly experimental, free-time a capella tune that I record with a USB mic and some VSTs (reverb and some automatic harmonies to create a drone, mixed lightly with the non-pitch changed vocals) in about 45-60 minutes, and some of the pedal tones came out gravelly (especially at the end), at the 2 high D's could've sounded better if I had taken the time to redo them, but as it is I think it came out pretty good. The lyrics follow a story of a guy falling in love with a girl in his dreams - if it has a dreamy quality, well, that's what I was going for! :D

Hi !

By listening to chaoszerom piece, I feel there was a lot of interesting ideas in there, like putting the piano at the end, to make a "cycle" effect.
In some terms, I agree with Maraki, the problem with most electronic music is that as people can simply copy/paste parts of their song, it makes them lazy and it makes the music repetitive, and for me it is an obstacle to feel it really alive.
But I appreciated your piece becouse you managed to make it not as repetitive as most electro music I heard, and because you inserted in some good melodies.

Maraki, your first piece really like a combat video-game music. It is full of surprises, and I like those 5/8 bars and those metal-like tunes at the end of the song. But I found the second one more deep and beautiful.
It makes me want to sit down and close my eyes.
It looks like ethnic chants, and I love ethnic music of all styles. What VST did you used to optain this reverb ?

In my case, I have sinished my album, entilted Hay Roses. It is a 40 minute-sized album with four songs of ~10 minutes each one.

01 - Spare Me Fucking Imparity : Originally a piano piece I composed last year, it is an instrumental piece, to open the set. It is an alternating of parts with an echoing theme fropm piano to violin. I used brass and guitar to give it a medieval tone, and I added a bandoneon to cement the different parts.

02 - Damayale Stories : You already know this song, a sort of flamenco with irregular bars. It ends with oversaturated drums and overreverbed flute some shamanic trance inspired me.

03 - The Old Sheppard Wind : A song surround by two instrumental parts which sounds between chinese music and classical. The song itself is led by a piano and a contrabass.

04 - Hay Roses on Your Song : The most atypic piece of the set. A sort of mix between celtic, arabic, tango and gypsy, made with 3 parts.

Hey, Voekoevaka. I'm about 3/4 through your album, and I already love it! It might be cool to collaborate on something if you're interested (I'm also a fairly skilled bassist and french horn player, an amateur tin whistle player, and you've heard my voice and compositions). But anyways, this is very good stuff, I'm going to share it with all of my friends who are into folk music and the like!

The reverb in that tune is a mixture of the free DuckVerb by MDSP, and the also free GVerb (or maybe it was FreeVerb - they're both essentially the same, and very simple reverbs) from the LADSPA collection of plug-ins. But mainly the reverb tone is from the DuckVerb, I just sort of smoothed things out with the other reverb. The DuckVerb helps getting in a large reverb sound without mushiness, but sometimes it was too obvious, and since I recorded through the VST into Audacity (this was just a moment of inspiration that I was trying to capture, it wasn't originally intended to have any kind of public release, but I liked how the demo *felt*), I couldn't remove/twerk the DuckVerb, but just adding another reverb over it pretty much worked out. I'm not very good at mixing and whatnot, really. I'm a better musician and performer than sound engineer, for sure.

I'm not really a fan of ambient noise, but this music was actually pretty good! At least, it wasn't just effortless drivel. Actually pretty worth listening to. Nice job!

My music is on Newgrounds, as "Ketamine4Life." I consider myself an electronica musician.

As I was never interrested in mainstream stuff, I like to explore ambient music to see new experimental stuff. I listened your album, and what it evokes me is "this is a relaxing piece". This is not really into the "classical" notion of music, but this belong to an extended concept of "the music" : sounds which have something to tell, which have sense... I don't know if you are used to "ASMR stuff", but this is not far, those "noises" are something to listen when you have to think, to be in your imagination.

Cool Stuff Church Hill. I dig ambient too and minimalism too. Have you ever heard Tom Recchion? I love his stuff. You might like it too. Also, Kevin Greenspon is pretty interesting and you might dig that.

Hey churchill - liked your music. Not depressing at all. Will check out your other stuff on Bandcamp

OK, here is the final mix, I have to let go of it now.

Track actually was inspired by Randall's Philae Lander comic & includes samples from the ESA's soundcloud page

- Michael Senfft's treatment of the electromagnetic radiation detected by Rosetta
- The recording of the impact
- A soundbyte (by a member of ESA staff, I think), demonstrating the correct pronounciation of the comet's name

Andries - sounds neat. Yeah, it's definitely got a spectral feel, feels like something I'd like to relax and just vibe to. Cool stuff, good work!

Anyway, here's another one. A piece based on automatically generated rhythms. Interestingly enough, a lot of African and other traditional rhythms are based on the Euclidian algorithm.

edit: final mix now up.

I listened to this, and I read the paper about euclidian rythms, and this is very intrersting !

I have read another paper about traditionnal rhythms, using an other construction but leading to a similar result, leading to the conclusion that for each time where there is a shot, the time which is at the popsite side (on the "circle" loop) is empty.

The music itself, I enjoyed listening : there is a true "naturalness" on those kind of rythms and you have exploited it very well. The melodic aspects that came after are good also.
