    Ha, that Peep Show clip is great! I love that feeling of regained time. I should arrange to do, and then cancel, more things.

    Thanks for the nice comments on The Judas Goat! I really need to re-record with proper instrumentation.

    I'm a bit overbooked on collabs but... if it's half-finished already, maybe? email me and we can discuss! Link is in my profile.

    I believe the proper terminology is:

    3/4 sounds waltz-y
    6/4 sounds like 4/4 but with a bit on the end

    Thanks for your kind words on "Do you know who these people are?" The way the layers come and go is kind of the point of the piece, so I'm glad you noticed! I took a bit of a different approach as far as that goes, tuned various oscillators to different notes, going through different filters and then brought them in and out by manually tweaking the volume and filters. So to play an A, then a C, you turn the dial up for a, then bring up the c and turn A back down again. A very different experience than playing a keyboard, and the different notes can have different timbres.

    Thanks for your thoughtful comment on mine and Josh's song! I'll be checking out your songs asap! Excited 😀

  • @paulh1237  2 days

    I'm just here guys I can see you're talking about me! Jks.

    I thought I would mention that I am working on that collab still; I haven't forgotten!

    Incidentally, I had to laugh. He called the mp3 'jazzzz' so now I have these different tracks all called jazzz 1, jazzz 2, jazzz3.

  • @frenchcricket 2 days

    I'd be down for that 😀

    Sounds great for a cheap mic! I don’t think I’ve ever been able to record such crispness. I’m using GB iOS though, I’ve heard it’s somewhat inferior. Could be that.

  • @shortdan  3 days

    ‘Owner Of A Lonely Heart’ by Yes - pitched up two semitones then sliced up. Right - better get back to listening. I’m miles behind 😞

  • @mjayp 3 days

    Haha, that’s pretty fucking insane. Not sure about Bieber myself, but anyone who likes JoFo is alright in my book!

  • @mjayp 3 days

    Thanks for excellent feedback on my song ‘Ella’... by the way, I never thought I’d see anybody’s influences include both Justin Bieber and Johnny Foreigner!

  • @vomvorton  4 days

    Just listening to BB for the first time, I loved You & I Alone. Teaming up with Max Tundra is utterly inspired. Really wish I could make it to that Leicester gig! I love CMW. Definitely going to get the album when it comes out!

    glad you liked the article--I remember it was one of those that really articulated a vague feeling of frustration I couldn't figure out until I read it and then I was like YES.

    I'd be up for vocals on any collab you sort for 'give ear to silent reform' (or whatever it ends up being called aha) just let me know!

  • @heuristicsinc  1 week

    Thanks for the review. Yeah, that's ebow! I really enjoy that thing.

  • @tunecat 1 week

    Hey there. Thanks for commenting on our collab "Just Perfection" - I've posted the lyrics now. I'm quite pleased with them except for a couple where the rhymes make me wince (just a bit!)

    Thanks for your comment- I love your voice! Very nice!

  • @garlajoie 1 week

    Your first listed influence is Carly Rae Jepsen - Yes! Yes! Emotion is an incredible record. I guess I've heard 3 of your songs now; You have a way of crafting very unique music that I can't quickly forget about it. Keep up the nice work my friend!

  • @balancelost  1 week

    I didn't actually watch it, which probably saved me a pair of underpants but heck yeah. We will destroy all comers! (or at least tie. If they're proper hot stuff.)#COYS

  • @judypie 1 week

    Hahahaha pops his clogs! I had no idea, thanks for the tip, sounds rad so I'll get onto it when Feb is over 😀 Thanks so much for commentsssssss

  • @frenchcricket 1 week

    By the way, inspired by your approach, I added some context notes to it. More songs should have footnotes

  • @frenchcricket 1 week

    Thanks! The samples (not the orchestra stuff) are from an online archive of 78rpm recordings (on which copyright has expired) which I forget the name of

  • @whispermouse  1 week

    Thanks for the lovely comment on "Winter River!"

  • @stevenwesleyguiles  2 weeks

    And a lot of that guitar sound (on I Want Joy) is because it's in a low tuning and I'm playing really softly with my thumb and no pick. Plus, I doubled and panned each track (one hard left, one hard right).

    Also, SUPER old guitar strings. So, they're very mellow tone-wise, which I like.

  • @lanasolyluna 2 weeks

    Thanks so much for your comments and for sharing the song I made. Really enjoying what you've been up to.

  • @dancrook 2 weeks

    cheers for feedback man- encouraging

  • @balancelost  2 weeks

    Ha, yeah that could be a KLF reference. Originally I thought just-about-managing but I like multiple interpretations. Cheers

  • @paulh1237  2 weeks

    Note to self to check out Alexei's solo stuff, very pleased with any johnny foreigner comparison 😀

  • @lanasolyluna 2 weeks

    Hey, hey! Thanks for listening to "Out of Mind" and your thoughtful comments! Have a great "Electronic" FAWM.

  • @judypie 3 weeks

    Awesome sauce, thank you for listening to ma song 😀

  • @tomski  3 weeks

    Thanks for the comment. The ‘beasty synth’ part may are may not have been borrowed from Clearest Blue by CHVRCHES. I have no shame!

  • @solarrainuk  3 weeks

    Thanks for your comment! I'll definitely be doing some more with just hardware, it's much more fun but very time consuming, especially with it being live!

  • @pinky  3 weeks

    Excited to hear whatever you come up with, electronic or otherwise!

  • @sailingmagpie  3 weeks

    Looking forward to your electronic make over!

  • @balancelost  5 weeks

    Oh damn, I'm still on Bangers. I didn't even realise she had more stuff. Time flies when one gets to my age.

  • @vomvorton  5 weeks

    HIYA!

    Jed the humanoid! Hey. I hope you make some stuff that sounds like Lizzo this year.
