Song Description

Sampled vocals processed way too much. It needs "More Cowbell" at the end. Do you have some of your favorite old data on 8 inch floppies stuffed in the basement? Any chance you could ever actually read that again? Something about the fragility of memory. Not sure quite what this is, but I find it rather disturbing in a way...

Lyrics
Shattered Glass

ya think?

put your thoughts
in a cardboard box
so you know
that they're gonna last

print your neural networks
on silicon and glass

hey hey, where you going?
what did you say today? ...

drop the box: shattered glass

a tape-out

...that we are destined to forget.
Heh! If anything I'd say process those vocals even more. Maybe even
cut or morph some of those sung notes into synth parts. It might be
cool to transcribe the vocal part into a synth that is run through a
vocoder AU. This is very cool when all the layers come together. Almost
hypnotic. The guitar/synth at the end is a real treat. Very unreal but
oddly authentic at the same time. Nice work! A new fav for me.

...that we are destined to forget.
i felt bad about quantizing my voice so much. my singing was awful that day,
and got worse with every take. but i like the idea of going all out on effecting
vocals - i'll have to try that!

hypnotic: yup, i was going for that. thanks!

On its way to feedback....
It sounds like the vocals are bleeding back into the microphone, slowly
building up a feedback loop.

I really like this track. It sounds pretty good no matter what, and it's quite
creative.

Btw, you've been busy this week.

On its way to feedback....
i cranked up the tape loop effect 'repeat' as high as it would go. i was going
after the Pink Floyd endless echoes effect.

i'm new here, and just posted a few songs to get started. i don't usually write
anywhere near 7 songs in 7 days!!!

thanks

I think this is one of the most original pieces I have listened to in a long
time. Kinda an intergalactic march of the wicked witch of the west's
guards (gulp) from the wizard of Oz..... Ah er I'll be OK soon.....

WOW WOW
super jam. 9-9-10-9. Shows a lot of creativity and good production
values. I love the build. I agree with a previous post that more vocal
processing could be cool on the lead.

what a treat
quite frankly, like nothing I've ever heard. This is such a cool track.
Very mesmerizing. Great job on the mix and the playing the various
instrumentation. at times this blended some of amazing sonic textures
together. imho, impressive as h*ll
