Hello,

I wrote this this afternoon:

Sens

Only a quick noodle, I doubt it'll get revisited...

Bit darker than my usual maybe...oh and I forgot to add any music (it's mainly percussive)

It's only 2 and a 1/2 mins or so, really grateful to anyone that can be arsed to comment :)

Very nice! This is the type of drums/percussion that I wish I could do. I feel pretty strong with everything else (bass, guitar, leads, pads, etc) - it's percussion like this that I wish I could put into my own music - and fits my intended style very well. Hmm... maybe a future collab?

Oh, and if you don't mind me asking, what kind of tools/techniques did you use for this?

Awesome beats man! That opening one is just so tasty... I can smell flesh boiling in great cauldrons. For some reason it gave me a real Music For Bodylockers feel when the main beat drops.

You are pretty convinced it was an inside job then ;)

Cool beats and sets the mood when backed up with the voice.

I like it, if that's the right thing to say for this Cypher :)

Best regards,

Peter

I like it too, though I'm uncomfortable listening to the speech sample, being reminded of such a horrendous day and I can't help feeling a music track slightly trivialises the suffering caused by the events of that day - though I expect it was well-meaning

thanks chaps. :)

@ jbravo - fair comment, maybe I should have posted a warning that it may cause some offence. Although I used it to add to the tension of the track rather than in any specific 'provocative' context. Interesting response from you though - yet it's okay for Hollywood to make a movie out of it? Not getting at you, and ironically I find a Hollywood movie quite offensive.

So, yeah, sorry if it offends anyone, that was not my intention :)

Anyway, thanks for listening :)

@ MikeLeuz - the very first rhythm is from Newscool in Reaktor, the rest is programmed by me using one shots in DR-008 :wink:

Certainly didn't expect sth like this from you :o :lol:
Nice, dark feel to it.
One thing I would do is run a slowly sweeping filter over the bongo sound - it needs some movement.
Maybe swap the 9/11 sample in favour for somthing our of a horror/zombie flick, too :)

Otherwise, this was an unexpected treat... :D :love:

cheers Ian.

I've just spent the last hour trying to find a suitable alternative sample and I found something that sort of works but I can't seem to get it to render properly...

Anyway, this was only a chance to while away a couple of hours yesterday so I think I'm gonna leave it as is (for better or worse)

thanks for listening :)

Stuff anyone who gets offended over voice samples I think. If there's a problem with this, then there'd be problems with god knows how much music, movies, art and everything else out there. Expression is about just that; expression. Are we meant to ignore the outside world? Are we meant to only sample unreal things (not that one can do that anyway)?

I think the voice sample is fine, and I say keep it. It's your music, of course! :oops:

Bit plain, since it's just a beat, but it's nice and short for that too... I like it. I'm adding this to my playlist too, if you don't mind (not that you can stop me!). ;)

Cool. 8) Great build. Enjoyed the tension of the track. Was kinda expecting a crescendo of sorts leading up to the end of the sample, followed by a wall of beats before the track died down again.
Gonna keep this looping for a while yet :D Cheers!
