Worked in the additions from Lyrictician and Ashes2Ashes.
Other changes: cut back a bit on audio in intro for sake of "the build", did a lot of EQ/compression work - should play better/louder with more spacing for all frequencies.
Thanks to YOU ALLS for your help collaborating on this, feels great to share a lil' song with you all.
Lemme know whutcha think?! :)
intro Don't be scared of my love (scratched up) Ashes: What we gonna do? I don't know, I don't know why... we don't know, we don't know
1st verse (theboxsets) You speak so freely like I'm not even there. This guy that guy this guy that guy this guy over there.It really ain't the fact that I wasn't prepared cuz I was. then I found out you still cared. What to do there? I dunno (we dunno) I'm still a boy . The laughter screams your name. All the good people walk through me, sending me insane.
2nd verse (ashes2ashes): I gave away all the words that didn't mean a thing/and kept inside this safest place/ the words "I love you baby"/ and then we walked away
3rd verse (theboxsets) Like I was Just a ghost. past tense and hollow but still a host of intense sentiments too hot to swallow. I'm opposed to this. I miss ya miss. I bless bless you without the hachoo I spot you in a room and I'm posessed by a spirit to get nearer Flesh to flesh is transparent right now but it'll soon be apparent somehow my love for you remains
4th end verse (ashes2ashes) I guess I'll call it "foolish lovers" mistake Our heavy egos and suspicions, They just got in the way but now I don't need no superstitious seance to say "My love for you remains"
CALLING ALL ARTISTS!
12:42, our Resident Video Curator, has some words RE: The hitRECord Academy collaboration and the types of community-driven records we can make for the collab.
Here is the link to the collaboration: http://www.hitrecord.org/records/177105
Here's how you can contribute to the "hitRECord Academy" collaboration:
ALL ARTISTS: You could contribute to this collaboration in a lot of different ways. Perhaps by creating traditional tutorials around techniques and software, or you could lend some insight into your artistic process (writing, composing, editing, drawing) as well as explore your inspirations in a creative way.
Community-oriented records pertaining to hitRECord and its functionality could be interesting additions to this collab. These may include: How & why do you recommend records? How do you upload your art to the site? How do collaborations work?
Contributions aren't limited to video; it would be great if all mediums were included! For instance, you could sing about how you upload a record, or you could illustrate the hitRECord process. Be as creative as you'd like!

I've been debating a lot of things about "Electric Loss" recently... not sure where to go except maybe forward. I hesitated to upload this yesterday morning, but revitalized by Jared's comments here it is. Version 7 of my progress. Theres additional animation, some replacements of animations to fit the mood a little more in some spots. Let me know what you guys think, it's important.
I decided to step back a bit and rework some of the backgrounds. I felt they were a bit static. I've also been getting this kind of cool look with white solid shades moving across colors and reflections... It makes it look extra purdy. Lol. So... yeah--I didn't do as much as I probably could have because I was debating on what to do.
I know that it also looks like you guys might not know where to contribute because I've been doing a lot of heavy lifting or possibly trying to steal the spotlight--but theres a lot that can still be done that I hope we all work together on this. Footage of singing or dancing, walking, riding cars or whatever you fancy can always be used. Rotoscoping if anyone is up for it is always appreciated--as a person who does it professionally, it means a lot to me if you do some roto. I could always use more designs for buildings, signs and maybe people too? Illustrators come up with some concepts, designers help flush them out, if not I can do some refining if need be. I'm still trying to find better ways to incorporate what people have already done for this collaboration as I've tried to remain inspired to do things because of the contributors. Granted it's not turning out exactly like one item or another, I think I'm doing the best I can to reach a safe grounding point for new ideas to emerge and continually bild off of.
Remember, These shots aren't timed perfectly and can always be edited. I purposely made them longer than need be so we can properly time them later. The only reason you're seeing things look like they go together is because I'm making it up as I go. If you're inspired with an idea for this, please let me know. I am totally willing to comprimise. A lot of these shots could use retouching or more elements. If you guys would like some of the elements seperated--thats a possibilty or even if you guys wanted the After Effects file--that's doable too!. Just make sure you download the appropreate resrouces. (I can only hope you guys carry powerful machines to work off of)
Also I stumbled across hitRECord's Tumblr to see that Electric Loss was featured on VH1--so keep it going guys! http://www.vh1.com/video/misc/828057/joseph-gordon-levitt-on-his-run-of-big-movies-at-the-box-office.jhtml#id=1692326
The rows of flourescent lights slowly began to come to life within the offices of Walters & Pence. The hum of electricity dissolved into the interior ambience after several minutes. Apart fr...
This is one of the directions 808beat can go into- Gentle, meditative and soothing like camomile tea:)
I recorded this as little brainstorming exercise before i will jump into the studio next week.
So far i imagine some whispering, flutes, sax, gluckenspiel ( harmonies in call and response to start with ) and then beat kicking in...with layers of children's voices and rain at the end.
I wanted something a la Sleeping Pill, i have not much time to make music at the minute, which is making me sad. This is a bit of healing 20 minutes session, i have extracted 2.45 minutes for you ears, to get subtle sense of how Krr, Joe and Justin works resonated with me.
and Hitrecord thanx for this collab made me smile!
Put your energy in the fire
All sweet golden suns
And place them in your heart
Stars are talking with the light
Crackling pleasure in between smiles
Sun at night kissing the wood
Dive into nighdream infinity

Eqipment: Flute- Yamaha YFL-211
SM58 Beta - sorry for the P! at 1.40 - btw
Boss RC-50- for live harmonising and loops
Edirol R09-HR- for ambient recording- 44.4HZ
I can't wait to record stems ( i promise no more than 6 RoboJ :-)
Just recently found these two artists within the last 2 hours of just browsing through hitRECord... they sounded perfectly aligned and some additional edits. its kind of interesting... Check it out!
**If theres enough people interested I can upload stems.
I took Krrr's 808 beat and layered over some samples from a duet of a love song from 1929. I got the song from the internet archive, so all is well. Heres the link to the internet archive page: http://archive.org/details/Duet-LovesOldSweetSong1929 Thanks!
I'd love to have someone to rap over this!
Only cello added
Remix called "The Final Few"
heres a few changes and a little more animation. Had a 5.6 GB quicktime file that wouldn't upload--so i converted it to flash... down to 57.4 MB... odd compressions.... but, whatever, it doesn't seem like i'll be able to make it look as crispy good on hitRECord as it looks like on my machine. sorry guys, i tired...
hopefully the next update will have the girl being swallowed by the big city face. i think once in side the girl will start to change and lose herself.
keep the advice rolling!
so i saw metaphor has released a new song today. heres my response. it only took me... 5 hours... lots of databending--not nearly successful as i wanted to be... but it highlights a few common ideas.
lots of thanks for the hitRECord community for uploading videos for me to play around with. i apologize in advance if your record wasn't highlighted to be sited as i only downloaded from sources i could find.
