The Otterworld

Post by jonetsu »

A rather relaxing piece, although in a weird way somewhat. Done with all due respect to the Realm of the Otters.

This has a very infectious groove, they way it all sits together gives it a very live vibe. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the comments !

The feeling/vibe of that piece is something a bit special. It's one of those happenings where the sum of all components exceeds their net value. In other words, since I'm one of those components, I'm rather flabbergasted about how it comes out 8)

I'll be removing the first 46 seconds soon as they sound more like being part of an initial sketch rather than a fully integrated part of the piece.

Cheers.

I like this piece. It has a nice jive, and all of the sounds work together. I like the very acoustic, organic-sounding cymbals with the electronic sounds layered over the top.

I like it and I would leave the beginning unchanged. First 5 seconds sounds like the beginning of a drone / doom track. Is there some breathing at the beginning and where did you take the samples from? I'm always looking for good sample resources. The sound that comes in at 2:17 is that a synth?

The beginning is made of the cymbals blended with some of the 'spirits' in the background. The 'spirits' are actually an artifact of audio processing using Echobode on parts of the drum track. I like it, so I recorded Echobode's output for the sole purpose of using the sound as 'spirits'.

Nothing is new at 2:17 so I gather you mean the lead synth which starts at 2:06. It's a Repro-1 factory patch called "CK Horny" slightly modified.

The spoken samples are from Gowler's "Movie Dialogs Free" and "Vintage Movie Dialogs". Gowler (U.K.) has a blog about free resources and outputs from time to time sample sets between £1 and £4. This is where I discovered the Organic Drum Loops (free) by drummer Bill Mead @ https://www.organicdrumloops.com/

As for the beginning, not sure actually. Not an easy decision, in a way. I'll let it soak a bit.

I run Echobode using wine-4.5 (Staging) and linvst from git circa January 2019.

Thanks for the website links. I downloaded the Movie Dialog pack and there are some nice samples with a good quality. Maybe I'll buy more, because looking through youtube or archive.org is really too time consuming.
