Christmas and apocalypse is here.
The cosmetics did it, but were disappointed.
It just wasn't all it was cracked up to be after all.
The goal of this tiny story is ...
This is just an idea so far, but I thought I'd share it anyway. I mucked about with that Django Reinhardt tune suzyrene uploaded.
Final version over here: http://hitrecord.org/records/638839
I'm not much around these days, but I am preparing some little things I hope you'll enjoy ! :)
In the meantime, here's a wonderful swing-y piece in the public domain by Mr. Django Reinhardt himself, that I found on archive.org : http://www.archive.org/details/DjangoReinhardt-01-10
I thought maybe it could be useful for the hitRECordettes collab', or just for you to play around with it ! So have fun !
In the heart of the world,
I once called you my muse and it was true.
A song inspired by Janetfelts (and Mirtle's) Hibernate.
I've left the ending/outro completely bare, I was thinking people could sing 'Hibernate' over the top and add extra instrumentation :)
I really enjoyed this song and what everyone has done with it so far. I wanted to contribute some drums into the mix so here you go. I'll also upload the stem for the drums for people to play with.
Just a little ditty inspired by mirtle's drawing! It's just voice and it should actually be in time - so have at it! (Maybe 52bpm I think?)
This winter I want to go live in a tree
I'll be in its belly til January
I hope that you will remember me
And visit me in my November tree
anoter track I've had lying around for a while - personally I'd like to hear someone adding whatever they think works to it - lyrics / pictures / video / all kinds of interesting instrumentation...just do it, folks....
Track from my new album Monsters
I created the visuals for Bullfought earlier this year, after finding a reel of Super 8 from the 1960s in a thrift store. I transferred it to 16mm, did some hand-tinting, and scratched out all the strutting matadors frame by frame. This morning I came across reneg88's gorgeous musical compositions and was struck by how well one of his newest pieces worked with my (silent) film. As the last few frames show, sometimes the downtrodden have their moment of revenge, however fleeting it might seem. Dedicated to #Occupy, FWIW, FTW.
Had a spontaneous moment chatting online with Johhny Clyde (http://hitrecord.org/users/Johnnyclyde) about education, career path, music, networking, and story telling through composition.
So I leave you with an impromptu soundscape about winter and hibernation. All of life enters a mode of hibernation as it braces for winter and hardships. The will to survive solidifies resolve as crystalline structures emerge to brace winter's whipping winds along the landscape. Freezing, thawing, dripping, blowing, shimmering, chaotic. A slow and steady pulse stabilizes as life surrenders to a state of suspended animation.
This is how i like my tea. I wonder if you agree?
Today I could not remember the last time I touched your face with my fingers—not even to wipe away a stray eyelash—or the last time you touched mine. I wondered when we turned ...
