Still experimenting with GB and no interface. this song is made up of some loops that I made, and a sample I found at:

they are a sample sharing community. the samples are to be used freely as long as you credit them. sample i used was of a man speaking spanish. it was called :

i'm thinking of throwing some vocals on this one, maybe just something simple at the tail end of the song (like Atlantis by Donovan). it's supposed to be a repetitive droning wash. not for everyone, but i am obsessed wih that type of thing. As I said, an experiment to see what I could do with some samples and loops, with played synths on top. no midi (i don't know how to use it).

I like it
I like it. It kind of reminds me of Susumu Yokota, who I'm a big fan of (although I know comparisons are hard). It caught my attention and held it. Adding a vocal could be cool, but I don't know that it needs it. Nice work.

Hey Jude...
So, you are obsessed with long droning washes... hmm, we'll have to talk later (rubs his hands together.) This is nice, has almost enough variation to keep the interest (I was waiting for some kind of lead, not necessarily vox, but something fresh and melodic to pop in from time to time). For some reason, the satisfying bassline kept making me want to start singing the ending of a very famous Beatles tune, it is very simple and catchy. Nice home-made loop work. Interesting photo, those aren't scopes or synths, so it looks like a HAM radio operator fixing his SSB descrambler :-)

thanks for listening
besides the beatles, you can also sing another classic rock hit: when I put down the piano I had to simplify the piano part as it was sounding like "sympathy for the devil."

and yes, i love the drones (can, neu, all kinds of psych, krautrock, and japanese electronic soundscape artists), but you can't deny a good pop hook. i actually had more of a melody in there, but dumped it in favor of repitition.

I share your obsession - I actually
hear a little Atlantis in this piece. This is really good - seems like you're taking off fast with GB. Give a listen to SmokeyVW's - My Song - if you like washy evolution. Oh - and thanks for checking out Drift. BTW - I was listening to My Bloody Valentine this morning. Wait a second - is that what you meant by MBV loopfest? Far out - too weird if it's true.

Good experimentation.....
I like the synths and concept. Exploring is all a part of the process. Glad I took a listen.

thanks for istening. experimentation is probably the most fun for me. since I'm not playing in a band any more, GB is almost like jamming (only with a computer). sometimes something cool happens, and other times it's awful. i know i've been in bands that needed an "undo" button (and some that needed a "delete" button).

wow wee
i like this!

it's dreamlike, spacey, flowing, slo-mo, spacey, reminiscent, color-filled, spacey, moody, deja-vu-like, all the things i admire in a good psycho..., er, psychedelic tune.

very good. very, very good!
