    Hi thanks for ur comments on "time-framed" I haven't read Proust ( nit to my knowledge anyway) and will check him out. Thanks for the tip!

    The comment you asked me about was presumabky to say really good stuff deserves more listeners. one of the ways I found ( the only way really) of boosting lithe chances of people finding tracks was by tagging them with challenges and/ or by getting involved in skirmishes - some people will listen to previous tracks. The comment I left could have been meant for you - Though you seem to be getting a reasonable number of hits- or maybe it was to the initiator of the thread. I dunno. No I do- I was blown away by your clown piece! More stuff like this!

    Thanks so much for your generous comments on my song Avalache.

    Thanks a lot for your comment. 😊
    My recording setup is actually not that impressive: a T-Bone phantom powered mic into an Focusrite iTrack Solo Interface (where I can also plug my guitar in) and from the Interface into my iPad where I either record into Cubasis (for a workflow with DAW, as in the most recent track) or use an app called AUM which allows complex audio routing setups including various effects and loopers for a DAW-less workflow (as in my first 5 FAWM tracks).

    Dude, that was a solid surf song! Great tone and I love the dueling guitars! I am absolutely not a guitar solo player. Strictly rhythm. You sounded great!

    Thanks for the very nice comments and for taking the time to listen! Much appreciated... I'll be checking out your music today for sure! 😀

    And since you brought up zombies for my surf song, you probably be aware that @mosley and I did this one a couple years ago, lol 😁

    Zombie Beach Party Attack​!​!​!

    Merci for your comment! I used Superior Drummer and the Evil Drums sound pack. 😉

    We played a live show where we used a similar process, only I was playing acoustic guitar, and some other parts, and Kurt was adding synth sequences and at times, beats. A lot of times I'm doing some processing on my own instrument as well.

    Hey, thanks for your kind words. Seriously touched that these suites are resonating with you so deeply.

    The way we recorded these, the only thing that isn't a synth or modular rig (which can be recorded directly into an interface), is the viola, and that is being captured with a clip-on contact mic, then run through Kurt's modular rig. The contact mic is not ideal, but it captures the tone well enough, it's not like we are trying to achieve a pure viola sound anyway.

    This also has the advantage of not picking up noises exterior to the viola, so we can talk freely without messing up the recording. In practice, we didn't communicate much directly in these sessions.

    However, as we play we have ways of communicating musically. Basically, I will play some notes on the viola and then I'll start hearing his processed versions coming back -- in this case often delayed a minute or two. Then I will start hearing interesting things in his manipulated version and start playing off them. Somet

    Oh, and I appreciate the Tim Hecker comparison, he's definitely an influence for both Kurt and me!

    Cool stuff! Yeah, Cormac McCarthy is incredible, very inspiring

    @howthenightcame - Yes! One of the reasons that Iron Maiden writes such amazing songs is because they have two phenomenal writers!

    Thanks for the comment on Forgiveness. No don't worry, I love discussing my process. It helps me analyse what I do and helps me come up with new ideas to change how I do things.

    Anyway, I use a DAW called Jeskola Buzz. It's a "Second Generation Tracker" program that is modular. The basic building blocks are called Machines (Instruments, Effects, Control Machines, VSTs) that you can route just about any way you can imagine. But the real power of the program comes from special Buzz Machines called Peer Controllers. They are machines that control any assigned parameter from any other (or mutiple) machines in your project. It is through a sort of Peer Machine that I am able to trigger notes on a VST with my guitar.

    The Machine is called Note Detector - and that is what it does. It detects the notes played into its input and sends out that note as a MIDI note to whatever Machine you desire. Essentially it acts as an Audio to MIDI converter which allows me to do a lot of things. Note Detector is a realitively new machine, one that I'm still exploring possibilities with.

    See You In The Shadows…

    Thanks for the comments on my songs. I admit though I named the song Jorge after the song was complete.

    Thanks a lot for your comment...the comparison to Eno and Gilmour (two of my heroes...) actually made my day. Thanks a lot 😊
