LOL
I'm getting this uncomfortable mental picture of a dancing dentist
juggling many drills. And the liquidy synth sounds ... ouch.
I like the beats here.

LOL
My, that is an uncomfortable mental picture! But I'd like to see that juggling of drills thing. Thanks for listening Mungo!

That...
...is different. Between the music and the artwork, I think I'm having a
flashback. Crazy sounds, tight production and percussion that Cobham
would be proud of. Uhh, did I miss the coronation?

Thanks AquilA, I was really feeling different. The coronation was a loud and painful affair that you're lucky to have missed. Thanks for listening to my crazy sounds!

What crown? what'd I miss, David
That was an uncomfortable image, Mungo, and now I can't get it out of my head, and it will forever be associated w/ this tune - And evern if I'm able to club the dentist and watch the drills fall permenatly to the floor, I still see some fantacular juggling gong on - Welcome back, PV - Is this about juggling? And, I just wanna know, how long did it take u to put this together? - The timming is outrageuous and those squinchy synth sounds are pretty fun too. But mostly, I get that this is about you clowning around and having a good time w/ yer music maker - Nice work, my friend - Dion

What crown? what'd I miss, David
Hey Thanks Dion! It's not really about juggling, though it would make me happy if a juggler chose this tune for their act. Mostly, as you say, it's about me clowning around and having a good time.

I assembled this song in two evenings, but all those weird noises you hear were created over the span of about a week, a month or so ago. I wanted to create a collection of sounds from the ground up, so I used SoundEdit to create the basic frequencies, then crushed thhem up using Gleetchlab. The weird noises here were the result; the only loops here are those Drums on Demand beats.

Thanks for checking this out Dion!

A visit to my dentist,
and I was getting ready to headbut the fucker when he recommended
dentures. Boof! denture that shite bag! Just finish the root canal and stop
sweating like a rapist.
DOD's may need a bit of eq but all in all this is one eloquent piece.
DL and high marks.

Juggling dentists...
When you're sitting in the dentist chair it does seem like the dentist and various assistants are sort of juggling... seeing how many metal things they can manipulate in your mouth. Thank god for nitrous. Thanks for listening Einar!

Ye Gods Man!!!
It hurts it hurts!

More nitrous!! Oh man and I have to go get an upper front tooth
replaced with an implant in a month!

Ohohohoh owwwww!
lmao...

I think you should have had a dumping coin effect at the end to
represent the amount of money that has to be dropped for this kind of
pain:)

Awesome buzz of the drill at the end as well! lol.
good job!
perceptualvortex said 4761 days ago (July 5th, 2006)
Ye Gods Man!!!
Yes, the dumping coin effect! Shoot, lost opportunity. I can't believe how much I had to pay for the dang crown, ugh! That's the most painful part. Well, I highly recommend using nitrous at the dentist; I didn't even bother with the novacaine on my last visit (which admittedly, had very little drilling); it becomes something like "ooh, look, off in the distance is some excruciating pain! Glad I'm not right there!" Heheh. Thanks for listening Didge, and best of luck with the new tooth.

Just what I needed!
... a little brain cleaning.

You got all the dirt out of the crevices with that water jet~~!

This little ditty is great... convulsive drums, buzz 'n' fuzz and the hi-fi gleetchy squirts... that does the trick.

Ah, the cleansing of it all. Which reminds me, that one molar feels much better now. Thanks for listening Stun, glad you liked this gleetchy water jet!

This would be a great Yes drum solo... Bill Thomas or is it David Bruford style. Dig the long stretch on the buz.

Hey thanks John. The long buzz stretch is my favorite part, as it teases apart the strands of my reality. Of course Bruford is one of the drummer kings!

The drums is a make that should make a special mention.
Very wonderful.

I was in a polyrhythmic drum solo frame of mind when I mixed this. Thanks for listening, Tadashi! Besides the animal groan, I think there's some bees buzzing and a monologue by R2-D2. :-)

Mental Melodies
First off, love the drums. Both the sound and the patterns. I may have
to look into Drums on Demand after this. Second, I love noise! Crazy
chirps in here and great use of pure distortion used as rhythmic
elements. The long modulating whine in the middle is terrific!

My one nitpick is the lack of an intro. It sort of feels like I'm dropped
into the middle of something and I'd like to know where it came from.

Mental Melodies
That's a great point, I will definitely add an intro. Thanks for listening man,
I'm glad you like the noises here.

Shades of Marathon Man perhaps - this is making my dentures tingle!

Very tense and claustraphobic - just like an everyday visit to the dentist in
fact!!!

Powerful stuff.

Too Short
You've done better.

This just wasn't interesting. As a noise experiment it works. Anything
more than this and it seem undeveloped.

Not my style, but doesn't seem like yours either.

A nice cut, fun, but not enough substance.

Not trying to be mean or cruel. Just didn't catch me.

Hadron on me
I really wanted a bass to come thundering in. Swinging arrangements
deserve a nice kicker and this, flying as it is, could go sub-orbital.

Hadron on me
Well, my first idea was to have drums as the only normal instrument, but
now that you suggest bass you've got me thinking that that's a grand idea.
I will certainly try it out. Thanks!

Missing element
The high pitched shrill of that horrible drilling device. Perhaps it was the N2O brought the pitch down....

Didn't lose the fear factor, though.... OUCH!

I'm saving the high pitched drilling sound for the next installment, "Novacaine". Hahah, thanks for listening Harold!
