Re: COVID-19

Another interesting angle on extra-terrestrials comes from the leader of the Falun Gong (Falun Dafa) cult Li Hongzi. Falun Gong is banned in China for having tried to overthrow the government. Falun Gong is a large organization that I do not support at all, that's represented in many countries in ma...

Re: Scheherazade

Thanks for listening! I do have a "fluid" relationship with the prog rock term, so you're probably right that it doesn't fit the traditional definition. I've always tended to define "progressive" something that is not static and changes all the time, rather than just using odd tempos and things lik...

Re: Scheherazade

It's nice although I did not hear the connection with progrock. Not that I'm versed in labels and tags though. The piece seems to go by w/o any anchor, it just flows by. Which is not a detrimental quality. I was surprised it ended when I was expecting more development. The ney at the beginning reall...

Re: COVID-19

It's also interesting to see what's going in France. There's a 70-year old medication, the chloroquine, that was given to millions of people, and was brought up to light in these days by prof. Didier Raoult, a world-wide known immunologist, leading the IHU research center and team in Marseille, whic...

Buta (prog rock, kind of) remix 2020

Kind of prog rock, maybe. This is a remix of a piece from 3 years ago. It was fun remixing it since there are so many details, so many ways to process audio tracks.

Re: COVID-19

What a coincidence. I'm not listening to much reggae although I've been listening, again and again and again to Steel Pulse since the days when I found a cassette tape of their songs while working on a farm. Later on I got all CDs. Their first CD is absolutely great, although all are great. On a rel...

Can't say I liked that song, but then I listened to other material you have on soundcloud: nice !

Re: COVID-19

This is all interesting as such. And yes, there are a lot of things that can be said on this and related subjects. The flipside of any of that are people stuck on the ' it's a conspiracy theory by conspiracists ' as if they had no brain cycle left to spare on anything else than their day-to-day live...

Re: The Ballad of the California Gold Rush

The piano really sounds like what we'd expect from a saloon in those times. Neat. Nice upbeat song, fun.

Cheers.

Re: COVID-19

The Twilight Zone episode mentioned in Truthstream's latest clip "Fear is the Mind Killer" is revealing of a tendency in its own history. The original episode of "The Monsters Are on Maple Street" in the 60s isn't seemingly available on youtube although TS is giving the 'punchline' : extra-terrestri...

Monogatari 01 (acoustic, folk)

This is a track from those ancient times, long ago where there was no Bitwig, no fancy plugins, no Mixbus. Recorded in Ardour, remastered today from the stereo track (not the original mix). Made of acoustic guitar and acoustic bass guitar, soundfonts were used for other sounds. Note: The exercise wa...

Re: COVID-19

It could be that humanity has to change. But who's in charge of the transformation ? There are not many historical accounts of truly honest 'leaders' at a large scale. We are 'better' now than 500 years ago. Or is it ? Can it be gauged by having utilities at each house ? The google 'leak' of an inte...

Selfish Ledger (Collage-1)

This is an updated mix (and updated title) of a piece created 3 years ago, to see what could be done having 3 years of mixing experience now. Unfortunately, the space on soundcloud is tight and this is a replacement of the original file. None of the tracks were modified, the idea consisting only of ...

Re: Making music as you get older

I feel like there's a few social perceptions that contribute to this: - That there's no value in creating original music if you aren't "Trying to make it" as a pro. - That a person my age shouldn't be "Trying to make it", because stardom is for young people. What is a pro ? Does it include in its d...
