Re: La Nouvelle Avantgarde (New Wave)

This one has a wholesomeness in the mix. Everything seems to be well balanced, the bass is all right, reverb just in the right amounts, panning is nice. It almost sounds like a full-fledged track (eg. not a demo), if it wasn't for the lead synth that seems to be just a tad out of the ensemble. By no...

Re: Zynspiration

It's a good exploration of some sounds. The organ sound is nice. He he, not to be rude, it's only for sharing purposes, here's one I did 3 years ago using Zyn (the 3.x series). All Zyn, except for the drums. All stock patches included with Zyn. https://soundcloud.com/nominal6/zynjam Maybe your son c...

Re: which song is coming out of your speakers right now, the sequel

Sunny Fournier lives in Cambodia and plays blues. "Turn off the news" is a piece about, well, you know about what. Cambodia had no lockdown, no social distancing, and hardly anyone wears a mask. 0 covid deaths in Cambodia: https://www.google.com/search?channel=fs&client=ubuntu&q=cabodia+covid+deaths...

This one was created some time ago and was revisited since then on many aspects. Was titled then "Jam 393". It's a slow, relaxed piece in two parts, with a piano solo as the second part. It's based on a slow pulse, like a breathing, that opens the piece. Over this breathing percussion populates some...

Re: Skjaldmær

This is a very nice journey. The strings are great, as with the orchestral part near the end and the acoustic guitar at the beginning. The mix seems decent. I would have to listen a few more times to find out spots. I've only listened for the ride, and it was nice. I'm sure that in nature, birds are...

Re: Mind Cavern

This is a good song. It's nice to hear that the tone is rather positive in the verses and then becomes mysterious for the choruses. Since instrumentals are my thing, I would naturally have inserted an instrumental part somewhere around the second chorus ! Benefits: extends the song by some coloratio...

Re: A spectable with open source tools

Nice, although I do not find that the dancing goes so much along with the music being played. But then I do not know anything about dancing and do not watch dance performance. When I do freestyle body movements with music I tend to express all notes that I hear. Can become streneous quickly though s...

Re: which song is coming out of your speakers right now, the sequel

Ozric Tentacles - Humboldt Currant (Solstice single), from their upcoming new album. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2xbYNvnzGMg The Ozrics are in very good shape. Very nice groove, psych synths wooping around, great bass groove. If it's not broken, why fix it ? The Ozrics are basically 'doing the s...

Re: Face Value

Thanks for the comments. About thew mix: I find that the bass notes shouldn't always be that long. They take a bit too much place. There's too much 'room' in the guitars, due to the microphone and acoustics. The solo guitar, indeed, can be more expressive. It gets better by the end as everything mov...

Now this one is threading on common ground. As such it should be more apt to comparison with same kind of tracks. IMHO, the mix is not right. I won't be listing why now as to not influence listening, although I find there are areas to improve in order to sound more like this type of song would be. A...

Re: Linux Musicians Playlist

It's not easy to come up with one piece. Here's one. It didn't get close to 1000 listens as others did, but it does use exclusively (apart from the drums) a free synth that runs on Linux: u-he's TripleCheese: "A Case of Käse Part Deux : Planet Gorgonzola" https://soundcloud.com/nominal6/a-case-of-ka...

Now mastered by the soundcloud mastering machine (provided by Dolby), Clear Sky type at 42% https://soundcloud.com/nominal6/fiori jam735-fiori.jpg I did not leave the original in place as this is a quick test, not really meant for comparison. During the mastering process one gets to choose which sty...

Re: Saunter

Thanks ! Yes, some Krautrock was part of my uprising so to speak, most notably Amon Düül II and Can. At one point I had all the albums. Still like to listen to these bands from time to time. The bass tone was saved in extremis, at the last minute. It can be difficult to take a step back and listen w...
