"I will change the world!" thought the snowflake and brought the branch to break.
[idea: Even the smallest can make a difference]
isn't it funny how letters make sounds and sounds make words and words make meaning, but i am communicating in reverse. i've so much meaning it must lie like dust between my toes, on the curve of m...
I lost myself into the original track by skylerchampion. It spoke to me, so I had to do a remix of it, with acoustic guitar and piano. More overtly rhythmic than the subtle rhythm of the original.
Like father like daughter. Before my Dad became a professional singer (then later police officer,) he was a boxer. He was all of 17 in his photo, 1950 of so. Since I was old enough to walk, he taught me how to box.
But it wasn't until later in life that I picked up my own martial art, which was Kung Fu. My Dad was so proud that I'd finally found a martial art for me (and I think a little relieved that his "little girl" would officially learn self defense.) It's because of my Dad that I do martial arts. And I know the resemblance doesn't end there. :) Everything we loved and cherished in our loved ones lives on in the things they taught us; specifically those values that made us say, "That has to become a part of me."
I just came across this picture I took of some winding stairs at the Urasoe Art Museum on Okinawa, Japan back in January 2007. It reminds me of all the RECords here having to do with spirals and repetition and Phi. It's also an interesting illusion since you can't tell at first if what you're looking at is the ceiling or the floor.
I thought it might make a good REsource for someone.
So there was a little snow last night and having lived in NYC for 4 years now (from Florida) I had never built a snowman. Until now! Got a time lapse of the experience.
This is the sound I hear in my brain whenever I see these wonderful shadow people collecting on the front pages of the hitRECord site. I hope I can score the music to their lives one day.
I was thinking about what the the gloam areas of Umbra might look like. So here's a small section of a wall. I was thinking of a place that's not necessarily run-down but made up of found parts.
I'm not a musician, can barely play "little boxes" & "keep on the sunny side" on my guitar... Blah blah blah blue...red... But music is important for me as eating, sleeping, breathing, I mean there is not a day without music in my life, whether they are happy days or sad ones. So this picture is what illustrates best all the blah blah I've written above...
lava_tornado released a great rockin instrumental called Project 26. Then Babbish sung her sun baked and neon lit lyrics onto it. Here, I just added some backing vox.
My first official Accordion Record! Written 1/11/11
If you like this, please check out version 2 that I recently recorded. http://hitrecord.org/records/629281
Re-RECommendations albums is a good way to dig up RECords we like. An other way is to remix them. I wanted to do something with TaraMarie's "Life is But a Dream Dance" for a long time. I thought it would go perfectly with Metaphorest poem "twin" by wirrow. Hope it does TaraMarie's work justice and she'll get some extra hearts :-)
a small peek into anthony's creative process with a remix of PASIV's "On Bridges"
next up, the making of the making of! (just kidding. but i'd love to see this remixed)
Thank you Sarah, I think I would still hesitate to make longer version, if not you.
This version is longer. It's 2:40 minutes, so it's sort of Director's Cut. Well, it's not quite right for I was not going to make long video at first, because has no idea what could accompany the music at the end, because there are no words, and the Wanderer is already back, and it still should look like animation. Remixing my own record. So here it is.
370MB, couldn't upload bigger file. Let me know if you need one, I'll upload in zip.
The village kids at Mulanje took over my video camera for a few minutes and left some blurry shots (which, yipee, double as very nice video textures if anyone needs some) and a string of talk in their native dialect of Chichewa. I will sadly not be returning in the near future and do not know of anyone who speaks Chichewa, so the dialogue of the kids will probably be lost in translation for quite some time. Anyhow, I still love the raw childhood exuberance captured in these soundbytes.
(Sheepish note: Trixie.Label: did I add this to the correct collab? I notice there are quite a few for the dialectics topic...)
Here you will hear Day Glo's "Strawberry Bootlaces" piece underscored by me playing piano. Love the British accent; hope the score is as loveable. Interestingly, I've actually lived the scenario so eloquently narrated... quite true to life, it is. Every bite.
this REmix uses the vocal and drums from Metaphorest's original RECord.
experimented with different variations before settling on this one.
REmix production, arrangement, Synthesizer, 808 programming, Guitar: meeeeeeeeeeee
Hope you enjoy, and happy REmixing
and many thanks to Sarah for making such a wonderful and REmixable song (and the stems too!) <3
I've been wanting to start a fresh hitRECord collaboration for a while now. This is an experimental film I shot last month of some barn swallows, which I hope some of you find inspiring enough to play with. Maybe add a musical accompaniment, or a VO story, or some motion graphics, or.. ?
Tech background: shot on 16mm using a Bolex camera in rural Ontario; hand processed; handpainted; digitized; colours slightly adjusted in AE.
i've been way too busy with a summer job and my senior thesis film for school (which will be slowly killing me until may), but i've been meaning to find more time to hit RECord. looking through my old recommendations, I saw soupy's "temple" and thought, "i want to see that move" ...so here it is moving just because.
I guess we all sometimes wish we could loop some parts of our lives and never let them end. But if you stay in a loop for too long, things start to slowly loose their edges, until everything is a big blurr and you're not sure anymore if you're at the beginning or the end, and before you know it, you're lost in the loop...
However, the not-so-deep musical part of my brains loves loops! :) and everything you hear on this track can be looped! you can find thse stems in the results, so if you feel like remixing, you can make your own loop remix of this song. And as always, it would be awesome to hear other people sining or playing along!
we can go back again
to where we began
and then when we reach the end
we can still pretend that
we can go back again...
