http://soundcloud.com/dysamoria/the-acc ... 1-march-24

New piece of music by me... well, it's a proper version of an extremely piss poor demo I created in 2009. Apparently, it pays to force myself to sit down and be productive.

This was done in Logic, after porting some processed loops and vocal recordings to it from the original Sonar project (I have to admit, I like Sonar's loop mangling features, which Logic lacks). Getting closer to being free of Sonar and Windows for music work...

So... What genre(s) is my music? I hate thinking about genres, and i think there are too many of them, but I realize some people don't listen to music without knowing the genre of the music on offer (and we all know the common question "what kind of music do you make?"). So, out of my tracks on SoundCloud, what genres are safe labels for my stuff?

Thanks for looking :-)

Very cool song. :tu:

Don't know about the genre. Maybe "Alternative Rock" with a bit of "Psychedelic"?

I thought the mix for the chorus worked better than the verse mix which was (probably intentionally) bass/mid heavy.

It sounds like you tried to cram every idea you had into this one song. It's a lot to take in but at least it doesn't get boring.

Thanks for the feedback, Frantz. :-)

i do indeed need to work on the processing (and singing) of the first verse, and maybe second. There is some intentional narrow/dark vs wide/bright contrast going on between verse and chorus (or at least, it is intentionally staying that way, though i didn't consciously plan it; i like the contrast and it makes the chorus pay off more, i think).

Thanks for the genre suggestions, too :-)

Cheers!

I enjoyed it. Nice contrast between the sounds and melodies used in the verses and chorus. I have no idea about genre, but the track seemed somewhere between NIN and Tears for Fears, if that helps.

Good work :)

Thanks for the listen and the feedback, seismic1 :-) NIN is absolutely an influence on me. I only know one Tears For Fears song, though ;-) (I do like it, too).

Yeah, i`ll go along with 'alternative/experimental'.
I like hearing 'Cafe' tunes that were composed as completed songs.
Cheers! :)
