Description
WildlifeAnalysis posted Invention #16 a short while back, part of a series exploring song construction based around the rhythm section.

I remember both Drew and I commenting on what an incredible tune, (and jumping up and down) at how much we'd like to play along.

Wombat was cool with trading files and when I finished up some tracks almost posted it, but decided to ping Andrew instead. Flip me out, he just finished a track on his end. So he mixed this with what I had done. Truly freakin me out.

Wombat (Wildlifeanalysis) - Mandolin, Guitars, Drums

Drew Kopr - Bass, Mix/Production

ktb - Keys

Yippee!
What a cool grooving, sweet melodic track! Just like KTB said, I had just finished laying down a bass track to Invention 16, when KTB sends me this killing keyboard track over the main groove, which you can find here http://www.macjams.com/song/47468. So we exchange a few files and bam! Invention 16 1/2!

fretless
Hey bro! Tx for checking out the tune. I wish that bass was a fretless...that's actually my Precision bass with a jazz pick up by Lindy Fralin that I installed. Adding enough reverb gets that fretless like sound. I need to buy a fretless because it is just the sound for a tune like this one.

Sir Jon
you do like to make these up beat tracks that free flow with musical happiness and good vibes. This, another example of your gifts of creativity on those keys. Sweet sounding tune that is just what i need to hear after a few hard days in the saddle.

aaahh
in this case all "beat" props go to WildlifeAnalysis. Its his Mandolin and drum programming that sucked me in. Glad to hear you survived the get together, hope you took pictures (both kinds) :-)

Wow, this really brightens my mood, just that easy...
Great propulsion...Lovely fast bass that is in the pocket and never busy...Nicely draped with melodic keyboards, and not pads... Everything in motion, but nothing in each other's way...

This is really cool...

propulsion
how apt. kinetic motion I did manage to sneak a few synth pads in there tho :-) but you hit on something that flipped me out when I first heard it. Drew just put our two tracks together and they gelled right away. Even down to this middle section where we both felt the need to drop out and let the rhythm take over. Very Rod Serling to me. I do love it when that happens thx for takin a listen Ed

Great work
here. Very up tempo and good feeling. Something for all the factory workers in the world to plug into. This must have been mostly done on keyboard as I didn't pick up on loops excepting with the drums and percussion.

Nice piece, kind of a Vangalis of today. Now, where did I park my chariot?

background
I too think it has a kind of soundtrack quality to it. Something with motion perhaps. There are 3 keys tracks, a piano, low synth pad and a string patch that echoes the piano. Wildlife did the horns, as well as the phenomenal Mandolin and drum tracks. Drew Kopr added bass and was responsible for making it work together like we planned it ;-)

Sit down and Listen
This one demands that you listen! A lot going on. Really tight groove from all three. Crazy to think the bass and keys were developed separately at first. Hats Off for some very fine jamming!

Thanks

Wow
Pretty crazy stuff. Really tight groove - nice playing - as Ed says, it has propulsion. Would make a fine soundtrack to a "moving traffic at night" kind of art film (normally scored by Philip Glass).

Enjoyed -

hot for invention
intro had me expecting hot for teacher lol ... seriously this is one of my favorite ktb postings...such a cohesive sound, hard to believe you all put it together the way that you did. really love the way the mandolin threads everything together (and the way the mandolin is mixed...how it comes up and goes down in the mix - very cool)...great bass and as always very cool keys.

dat organ
Tim, glad you like the organ. Only part I was a little unsure on. I'm still a lil freaked as to how this developed (just sort of hapn'd) in one day. Drew and I both finishing tracks independently and then he melds them together like he did. I truly love this place.

And the song itself sounds happy to exist. Like it is happy to be so musical. It's hard to explain, but I hope you get what I mean.

Big cyclic thrills
I was drawn to this by "ktb", but pleased to hear Drew here as well - lovely mixing btw. Wombat - I'm assuming there's an Australian connection there somewhere - you certainly gave the boys something interesting to work with. I'm just starting to become more aware of mandolin as a very interesting instrument - it will be good to hear what else you have.

Great post John.

Cheers,
Neil

mando
Wow, well, I loved this piece the moment Wombat posted it and the additions here are just fabulous. I love what both Drew and ktb have done. Sounds excellent - the bass adds great depth to the piece, balancing out the mandolin perfectly. ktb, your keys, as always, are awesome. Great work guys - just an incredibly fun tune - puts a big smile on my face!

Massive
This is magnificent stuff. First thing that grabs the attention is the beat, and then that sweet bass. The playing on the keys throughout is superb. It has mind-bending creativity and musicianship, without devolving into noodling (if that makes sense!) Lovely stuff. SOrry it's taken me so long to get here! Kudos to everyone involved. Peace.

Nice intro! reminds me a little of U2's song but WAY better!! The melody flows very well..but it fades to quickly you could really expand on this Holley :)
