Hatred is Foolish (Bertie Russell Mix) - Agrippa (Hermetic Vessel) by TFC UK published on 2012/04/20 23:20:17 +0000 Another track created with a not too limited palette for the Propellerhead Forum Song Challenge (Forum Song Challenges - Challenge V: Synth Nation - The Launch). Using a demo of SampleFiends' Synth Nation Refill. Synth Nation patches used: 'Did You Say Epic?' 'Filter Chunks' 'Thick 'n Meaty' 'Megalithik' 'Twice Haunted' 'Warehouse' Plus one drums & percussion audio track (Dr OctoRex & Redrum bounced) Plus one vocal sample audio track Crit & comment welcome. Coda: Although I didn't win the challenge (far too many superior entries, as per ;)), the judge, Marc Doty (of Moog Music, the Bob Moog Foundation, and Automatic Gainsay) took the trouble to appraise all the entries. Here is the very constructive and encouraging feedback he was kind enough to write for this track; Bertrand Russell? Awesome. I like the feel of the synth parts against the drums. That syncopation is compelling. Ooh, the dreamy EP sound is interesting, and a good choice. Very danceable, my head is bobbing. I like the placement and implementation of the vocal samples. The big fat bass sound is cool. The break is fantastic. I like the chords against the bass with the vocal samples. I like the interplay between the two different synth parts against the beat after the break. The drum/bass/synth/sample breakdown at end is cool.
