spassles

i went off for a walk, then i came home and went to order
dinner, and fuck your minimum delivery etc i'm going on
another walk. eat dinner and npr, gear still going. i need
another walk. more stuff, you get the idea. i spent another
40 minutes and started trying to jam that modular nonsense
together with a beat

thanks i needed a name for this one

don't bother

i'd say hassles, sassles, and pinball lizard are the best so
far. can't tell you about don't bother until tomorrow, but
it was kind of whatever i suspect, but who knows, i've been
wrong before

going thru em sprinkled into an evening playlist, hassles is
great. is this like sessions with the gear running hot and
just doing different takes? seems like it works for ya
anyway

it kind of kills me, really. i was literally just half
snoozing on the floor; i was doing yoga but i'm tired and
wound up dozing, and thinking: oh fuck it maybe i should
just sell most of this shit off. i wanted to do another stab
at this particular thing but now i'm tired and i could
really just fall asleep here on the floor if i let myself
and doing another one is too much effort and someone was
mean last time anyways.

so i appreciate that earthleakage has apologized and that
belb likes it -- and yes, the shit is still on right now,
gear been on for a few days now running the patterns over
and over. that i argue with myself about wear on the gear
and $$ electricity vs. i might find my way to another take
in a day or two

what really kills me is, like: ok. i'll keep my current
house i'm renting. i don't have a functioning car anymore
but that's ok too. but can someone just write me a check
for, like, i dunno, $2mil? so i can quit my job and spend my
whole life either A) working out B) working on music C)
sleep sometimes

because i'm old enough not to blow it on stupid crap and i'm
also starting to feel i'm worth it. like, just set me up
leave me alone and i will drown you in trax

but who'd fucking do that.

Thad Spassies

i'm tired again but at least i managed to record... just
messing around really. i'll probably delete it like the last
two, not to be a cunt or anything, but because i'm right at
the free soundclot limit and whenever i upload something,
something else has to go.

I listened at my computer instead of in my car

hassles wasnt feel this too much. I only like "noise" tracks
sometimes though and rarely when they're on such an upfront
plane. Like all that smojphace shit sucks ass too, so it's
not just you.

rhumba clip removed

spassles love the crunchy bass, beat is decent. Good sounds
in general

filter beat and filter beat ii removed

parsnip beat yeah it's decent

pinball lizard I like the pingy high pitched sound. The
mushy noise beat is too much for me at this frequency.

dont bother removed
i shouldnt have bothered

chunky removed

thad spassies pretty spergy. I can hang more with the noise
elements here. I like the bouncy, underlying vocal stuffs
and I like the ending

vocal stuff. do you mean the stupid sample? but no i more
hope you mean how i like to kind of "talk" through the gear.
im just not sure if anyone else hears it that way

Points: 3917 Status: Regular



I meant the vocal sample but dont sell that short, cause I
can hear the sample a bit more naked right at the end so I
know what you did with it. the fuckery at 2:28 is fun and
adds a lot to the track.

As far as it sounding like the track is talking.... I feel
that fluidity but no one is ever gonna translate/picture
sonic abstractions the way you want them to.

Still talking Thad Spassies here, to me the beat elements
are like a little a ripple of connected circles on a string,
almost like anal beads, see. The rest is big textured brush
strokes of red and orange, with all your grain visible in
each patch.

Any way this shit is all pretty noisy and autistic but it's
fun.

when i was, like, four, my aunt and uncle gave me a
fischer-price synthesizer keyboard (yellow) and it came with
a songbook and my dad sat there and taught me yankee doodle
and twinkle twinkle little star and i got this pretty quick,
so he then explained how the notes on the page corresponded
to the keys, and have fun son. and i learned a few on my
own, like "somewhere over the rainbow," but i actually
totally forget how to play that, now. because in short order
i decided that fucking songbook full of notes felt like a
straightjacket and you know what i am just going to throw
that in the dustbin and hit whatever. notes. i. feel. like

then within a few months i broke that keyboard after telling
the babysitter i had permission to steal a screwdriver (now
that i knew where dad hid them) and open it up. i snapped
off a bit of the PCB fucking around with it and i knew [at
five or a bit before] i'd screwed up. so, in a panic, i
promptly denied everything because i didn't want to get in
trouble (and i didn't). but in retrospect, i want to go back
in time and slap myself, because if i'd owned up to it, dad
could have fixed it, and i might still have that thing, and
i would bet my left nut it would have been a real charmer to
circuit bend

but lesson learned there. less so with the songbook full of
fucking sheet music -- which i actually understood better at
4 than i do now -- which i also broke pretty thoroughly;
didn't even miss for a good decade or two

the thing with afx being all microtonal, custom scales,
global tune cheekiness -- like, fuck, i've spent ten years
learning to bend stuff by ear on a capacitive touch
keyboard? but now that i'm so far down the road of getting
it wrong, i actually like my way better. i am not
microtonal; i am omnitonal.

but, like, i dunno, the gear has been on since this thread,
june 10th, i keep coming back and trying to get more. and
"seeping in the sunshine," it's like, yeah, finally, i'm up
there, some high-level pagoda. like, i'm p. sure this
doesn't suck

sleeping in the sunshine

I love the outro starting around 2:25 and the dirty kick
rush there. I'm a simple man. At first the drums didn't
click with me too much, but by around 1:50 im groovin'.

I also love the dying cat sounds are most pronounced around
0:49.

And I like the AI generated art.

good track.

the entire time; no programming. i'm not exactly sun ra but

i'm quite happy with the title too, actually. i thought:
i've switched out the fatboy slim sample for something that
won't get me sued to shit, i've swapped out a bunch of
sounds to match, and... yeah, this is no longer moran
louter. what should i call it now? and my brain, the back
shelf somewhere, no hesitation: "we slept through most of
the day today, hmm, sleeping through the sunshine? no.
sleeping in the sunshine? bit of a better ring but too
generic; probably loads of songs called that already. so..
seeping in the... ok that's it"

and later i realized it's even better than i realized.

sleeping in the sunshine
seeping in the sunshine [gradually bleeding it in]
seeping in the sunshine [pouring sweat in the sun]
sipping in the sunshine

afx can make such wonderful track names like phlaps and
vordhosbn and avril 14 and canticle drawl, but he's been
holding out on us. first he just starts copy/pasting his
track names from security bulletins off symantec's website
as an "anti-piracy" measure and now all his track names are
just like software version revision numbers sheesh

^^ practice take at first totally fapping about at
the start. then the battery on the delay pedal dies ~43sec
in or someth and it's really really autistically gated but i
decide to keep going and wind up blowing up the moog a bit
more and then rinsing the percussion cool thanks good ideas
guys. i'm going to eat, replace the batteries, try again...
like, blow up the moog and rinse the percussion but also
have my spiraly chords functioning too
