Artist Bio

Influences:   This test we're attempting some bizarre blend of: Fall Of Troy / At The Drive-In / Cursive / Pretty Girls Make Graves. But probably instrumental.

PN: He

Good News: I have a vague plan to do a 3-piece instrumental EP with guitar/bass and badly programmed drums in some twisted take on the bands above. I am shamelessly playing around with riff ideas in advance, because..

Good News 2: Little Clara is nearly 3 months old. Spare time is a myth.

4 completely chaotic songs maybe, and I'll be happy?

  • @bfwaite  Feb 20

    Thanks for your encouraging feedback on my song. Great to know that particular lyric resonates for you! Cheers!

    Blatant chaos amongst your mapped out structures. It rules. This is so out of my writing wheelhouse but in listening, I think it's a hard thing to accomplish having artistic urgency with the math metal dynamics (I think speed is often confused with urgency in this genre), so well done.
    Also, the title, "Achille's Knee Was a Bit Dodgy Too" made me lol. I have no idea how the hell you're doing all this with a 3 month old at home. Way to crank em out.

    Thanks for your kind comments on Be! I can’t believe the random coincidence but as I was reading your message, I was listening to Anyone Else But You by the Moldy Peaches FROM THE MOVIE JUNO because a friend requested that my fiancé and I learn it for our next open mic night. I need to go watch Juno now.

  • @arkka  Feb 16

    Thank you!

  • @radioovermoscow Feb 13

    Thanks! The beat change thing happens because they're completely different riffs. I had a few I'd recorded separately at the same tempo, then pieced it together - and this is what happened.

  • @artistunknown Feb 12

    Thanks for the comment!

    I'm glad you like the dissonance, I'm always worried people will hate it lol

  • @nahlej381  Feb 12

    Appreciate you, friend.

  • @pumpkinhead Feb 12

    Thanks @paulh1237. My confidence when it comes to singing is not that good and on that one I just didn't seem to get where I wanted.
    Peace <3

  • @ineloquentsd  Feb 6

    Thanks for your feedback on “Unfortunately Embodied!”

  • @jessespillane Feb 6

  • @sourcedecay  Feb 5

  • @bitshred  Feb 4

    Thanks so much for listening and the comment! Appreciate yah.

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Feb 4

    Thanks for the comments! If only 4 songs be your goal I think you just might make it! 😁

  • @thefuneralcrasher  Feb 4

    Thanks for your very kind comments...good luck for the big 14!

  • @modmiranda  Feb 4

    Thanks for listening to my imaginary movie music. I think there’s a film coming to life in my head, and your encouragement is part of that! 😊

  • @kembole Feb 3

    Thanks for your kind words! Fyi, I actually had only two electric guitar tracks going on here. Only the bridge had a extra lead guitar and it's not loud at all. A few inverse reverbs and a pattern/echo delay. The other key was to use the the tremolo on the guitar alternating speeds and intensity on left and right channels.

  • @seemanski  Feb 3

    BTW, the really high backing sounds are me bending on the guitar, not getting it quite right so slapping reatune on it and a doubler to hide the fact that I screwed it up 😝

  • @seemanski  Feb 3

    I thought as much, I would have been very surprised if you had said, nope, it's entirely midi. BTW, the reason the words are good on the load is because I didn't write them, it's a morph and I just pinched them 😝

  • @ampersandman  Feb 3

    Thanks for the kind words on "Sing!", being compared to Far, which I love, is a huge compliment for me, so extra big thank you for that!

  • @nerdjealous  Feb 2

    Cool! I gather theres intuition in it so I'll start to try different things similar to what you've done to achieve that effect - cheers! 😁

  • @nahlej381  Feb 2

    Thank you very much again!

  • @nahlej381  Feb 1

    I think you’re prolly cooler than I am lol thanks for the kind words!

  • @kissinginpublic  Feb 1

    Thanks for the comment. That brass part came from accidentally pressing record and then hammering my computer keyboard to see if the musical typing was working. Sounded Ok 😁

    Looking forward to the album/EP 😀

  • @chrismyth02 Jan 30

    Definitely up for a collaboration; send me a track when you have something, looking forward to digging into some heavier stuff. Thanks for reaching out

  • @seemanski  Jan 28

    Hi Paul. It took me a while to find your profile in my watchlist, I was not looking out for a dog 😀
