Requiem for Dr. L (LIOLI7)

Description
My entry begins with a 20 second intro using the dreaded 80’s Rock Guitar 01 loop in it’s original untweaked glory matched with a handful of suitable Apple Loops to create a “straight from the box” piece of GB collage.

What comes next is the result of mindless and tedious cutting and pasting. The bed that fades in is the original original loop cut into the smallest bits possible. Each of it’s eight beats was divided into 32 equal sections using the timeline division tool. Then each bit was selected and copied four times. I watched the entire film “The Professional” while doing this on my laptop – it was a lot like knitting. The result was that the loop consisted of 1024 fractal like sections. I then created three tracks of this loop and tweaked two for variety and depth of texture with eq and such. The third track was run through the Automatic Filter effect on 16th Pulse and tweaked to create the slightly funky stacatto synth hits you hear.

The rest is Drums on Demand loops, two live bass tracks, and two live electric guitar tracks using the Line 6 Toneport for effect. In the end I added a subtle track of synth to the middle section played on an Oxygen8 midi controller.

The things we do for love.

Thanks Rik.

OMG
like knitting, only much more manly. this is so stoney and psychedelic. i love the guitar tone you added to it, and the fact that the riff is unrecognizable is perfect for me. great job; now on to the rest.

Hide that loop - subvert the system
I'm not the only who went that route. I appreciate the stoney and psychedelic comment - always makes me smile. Thanks.

Very cool
Once again, clear proof that there is no end to the creativity and imagination of MacJammers. To take such a Basic riff and turn it into this is, quite simply, inspiring. Nicely done. Peace.

Those drums and guitar!
Wow. Love the glitch-spin you did to that wretched loop, Bud. You rock my world. This track is right up my alley: experimental and accessible--much more accessible than the Fred Frith album I bought today, but too different to compare.

Nice work.

Frith and Glennie
The Sugar Factory. Evelyn Glennie and Fred Frith did a bunch of recording in an old German sugar factory for Evelyn Glennie's DVD, apparently. Then, Fred Frith took a hard drive full of music back to his studio near San Francisco and started mixing around with it until he produced this album. It's wild. He released it in 2007. You should give it a listen if you're still into that god awful noise :p

Interesting you should ask
my iBook couldn't really play the whole loop at tempo so I worked on it slowed down and with no effects. Then I upped the tempo when i was done and saved to iTunes. I dropped the resulting aiff into my G5 and took it from there. The effects got kinda deep at that stage and I had to bounce each of the three tracks down again to continue. Just like the old days of 4 track.

Good to remember old tricks
Some of my students are amazed when I tell them some of the old tricks that they can still use today, like bouncing some mixed tracks to free up processing power. Same technique as bouncing to free up tracks in the analog days.

Let the Dirge begin
I almost pity the poor demented soul has this piece rolls into his ears and fries his evil brian on his own loop. This is an awesome track on any level Bud. You got him good now, he won't be able to ever challenge the MacJams Super Loopers after this.

I never was much at knitting...
(Crocheting is much less tedious!)

Very nice patterns that you've woven into this 'totally cool' groove!!
I'm so impressed by all the entries! Fantastic creativity :)

I'm with michael2 on this one: very stoney and psychedelic, indeed.

So well done!!

That loop is atrocious and deserves nothing less than 32 cuts! This has an infectious "underground-indie" vibe. Great bass! I'm totally jealous of the tone. Sharp, laid-back guitar work.

Sleazy and nice
and sharp as spice. Loops or not, this is a killer - great guitars and drums, and that throbbing screech that works through the song at the start - dunno what is is but its discordant but catchy. Why didnt you sing on this man - would've really topped it off?

oops...
...I listend to this shortly after you posted and I was blown away. I thought I commented, but I came back for another dose (on my home computer w/the bose headset), and realized I didn't comment.

Soooo anyway - GREAT entry Bud. Guitar work is fantastic. And the overall sound has a slight Trower feel, with your original brand of trippiness as a bonus. Definitely a lot for me to learn from here. Oh, and nice touch with the artwork too! :-D

Ohhh Mannnnnn
...I'm in a daze wondering how that gawdawful loop got turned into so many different interpretations of wild ideas. THIS is why I missed LIOLI so much... this one just ri-i-i-ides, drifting on electric molasses and sunglasses, floating over that incredible bass line and smoking the place out. The strobes that move in and out of my brain are different colors...

What a trip. Heh hehh,,,hehhhh...

Doug Somers said 3493 days ago (March 30th, 2008)
This is
just too cool, especially now that I know how you cut up the loop to create the effects. Laid back hot guitar, slow driving bass and drums, and these little dabs of sound from the left and right make this an easy groove to settle into. The Doctor doesn't have a chance.

Thanks Bud.

Keep well,
Doug

Gee, if it's this much fun...
Maybe I should do one of these loop things m'self someday...

I love the live guitar playing over this, and the live bass, too...

It's got plenty of edge, but this is also really meditative in feel... I know it's one that I'll come back to...

Really enjoyed this Bud - haven't relly gotten into LIOLI this time around, but what I've heard has been really impressive - this being among the most so.

Just a very good listen.

Is the standard getting better and better here at MJ or what?!

Fierce!...
No foreplay or anything..., just hop right into it... What a guy... I like the way that happened the second and third time around but by then, the previous listens served up as the "recommended" foreplay of sorts.

I'd say that you're wrong about the task being of a mind that is less...
Certainly, a bit of mindful thinking went into the task of composing this. I did get a hit of the purple dots in this, though... And was the drum work mindless too?... The bass?...Tedious, yes! Mindless, I think, not! What were those monstrous bigger than bite sized chunky sounds that you had syncopated and fearlessly panning from ear to ear. Nice touch!

Very nice listen, Bud! Sorry that it took me so long to make it to the ride. Nice one!

Thanks! Dion

Clever and soulful
Great idea to present the loop before blowing it away into tiny pieces ! Drumming sets everything right, and the whole atmos really catchy. Great looming bass too. Seems your guitar work is constantly improving, in all direction, since the first track I listened from you. Thanks to share this very inspired moment, bud.
