    @swampmessiah: i am attempting to do exactly what the composers of the tone poem did. create a swath of sound that encourages the listener to form a narrative based on the emotional reaction to the loops and cycles of the compositions. oddly enough, i had no idea what a tone poem was until i just looked it up. :-)

    @swampmessiah: ha! good! i was going for a strong bassy drone pull. i've been playing in the midrange too much lately.

    @swampmessiah: thanks! this is a re-worked older track. my material from a couple of years ago tends to be less stream of conscience so, i am sure that came through in the re-interpretation. i am glad you feel there is variety, i am trying to stay out of a sound rut while still having a sound.

    @swampmessiah: i have been delving into subtlety, something i have far from mastered. however, this track just recorded quietly, not sure why. oddly enough there was a chainsaw, semi-truck, chickens, children, jets and neighbors going on in the background when i wrote this. it was driving me mad.

    Standing In the Amber Current at 3.50
    on May 21, 2011 21:29

    @swampmessiah: yeah, this track was mostly synths, with a few samples (live jazz band, apoc now, castanets...) i was playing with the modulation on my droning synth bass and the arpeggiator with another synth sound which gave it a old school sci-fi sound. it is my old industrial roots peeking out from behind my new softer approach. also, i am trying not to get stuck in a specific sound rut while maintaining a 'me sound'

    @swampmessiah: yes, everything in these 5 compositions have been source recorded with my ZOOM H4n except the female vocals. those were recorded with a condenser mic over a year ago.

    @swampmessiah: yeah! i was very pleased with the build up in this song. nothing compared the awesome build up in henryk gorecki's symphony #3, "symphony of sorrowful songs" which is probably one of the most beautiful and inspiring pieces i have ever heard.
