EDIT = arranged full track:
No One Told Me
originally known as "Who Knows".

pretty much just a guitar solo. There's some e. piano providing a little bit of anchor. Works, though some of it is so, just perfunctory. I think there is a wrong note in there but I may end up still liking it.
comment after completion: I fixed that, although the wrong note was in the lead guitar.

Absynth pad that isn't too prominent. Weird, weird shit that I haven't developed and mixing this needs attention and probably subtracting some more although its too low in the mix ultimately.
comment after completion: didn't bother. The weird thing is there is a lot going on here but it's totally subliminal I mixed it so low.

a bit crude. I did pay a lot of attention to the sound of this lead. I will orchestrate a slightly refined cut of this starting tomorrow but somebody may get a kick out of it as is. I do.

comment after completion: I spent 30 days on the stupid thing.

:hihi:


this on the other hand is acid soaked psychedelia :band:
some highs yes, but nothing overly harsh, some lovely feedback in fact :love:
ok some of the notes towards the end do get to higher registers, but it never got painful here 8)

look forward to where this leads if this is the basis :o

I think it's just you and I who can stand this kind of business.

There's going to be a LOT of drums here. Fender bass.
I may actually double some of the lines with some orchestra, but donno if it will work. Do a little more with the piano and work with its tone.


this kind of thing makes me think of the one thing Alden Jenks said to me: "Lot of energy here. Now subtract from it."

thanks

hell yeah theres energy!
don't subtract too much though, theres a definite live acid jam feel to it at the minute, would be a shame to lose that vibe completely (imo of course )

That's exactly the balance. No, in fact this is mostly post-subtraction as far as the lead goes. I may filter a little bit of it at the end.

it's quite sloppy but it is what it is, one can tighten the timing of a thing and lose the spontaneity altogether. I'm not going there. The way to make this better is with its eventual surroundings.

:D

yeah, it's like that. some Bozzio Frenzy

funny thing about the 'feedback', it isn't. It's a combination of FX producing quite some resonance characteristics but really brought out by the range of this wah filter, Efektron WF3607 by Kuassa. It may still be 19 bucks! :love:
