I have seen the afterlife...
...we figured out that when you finally get the motor
running, and you are going at just the right speed,
the sky just cracks right open...at first, the visions
ain't too pretty, but when your head starts to vibrate,
then the singing begins...

Wow
So much going on, yet it all fits and maneuvers without
clashing. What an amazing journey of sounds. Nice job
guys!

Worth the wait.

Huhrah!
MJ is back online and it comes with a new psycho-acoustic journey from _nderscore and friends!

There's lots of cool effects tucked away in this. It feels a bit scattered, as though it isn't exactly sure what it wants to be, but it does seem to evoke a narrative.

Oh, yeah... giant alien ships drift down to disappear beneath the dark surface of the ocean. The intellect of the whales is awakened, they gain telekinetic powers, the waters rise, and a new age of aquatic dominance begins on planet Earth.

Awesome....
..use of sound, effects, and general wavelength.
Experimental ventures like these are extraordinary to
listen to when they are done so well.

As to what I see? Why I'm hurrying down a crowded street
on a dark and stormy night, late to some intergalactic
choir rehearsal.
And darnitall, they've started without me!

Thanks for the fun! :)

Holy...
Dude, this is awsome.
You should do sound design for films. This would go
great with one of the new wave of Japanese horror
movies that have been coming out lately. Very cool.

pooey said 5266 days ago (January 14th, 2005)
Thanks!
Of course, I can't take all the credit. It was a real
rewarding experience collaborating on this piece.
Listening to the initial offering from _nderscore and Stun
Nutz, I was thrilled that I could respond musically and add
to the piece. My additions were subtle; only accentuating
the textures already in place. Much work was done by
Stun and _ndies to mix it and get it finished and I thank
them for it. Sounds great. (I won't vote--I am a bit
biased).

To me the image that was constant in my mind was a dim,
concrete parkade. And then like a dream it morphs into
something else, more ethereal. Very much like a dream.

Stun Nutz said 5266 days ago (January 14th, 2005)
Thanks...
...but I can't take too much credit either...! The whole piece started with
_nderscore's dark synths and clicking rhythm. I just added some
ambient sound effects and manipulated voices. Pooey added some
additional rippling synth tones and the chorus, but it was _nderscore
who re-arranged and wove the whole thing together...he did most of the
tweaking/adjusting...the credit goes to him! We had fun with the art,
too... too bad it's not letting us upload it yet!!!

_nderscore said 5266 days ago (January 14th, 2005)
well, that was fun..
the neat thing about this is that you can stop the song at about any point &
hear content by all 3 of us. this would have been a very different song if one
of us were missing.. a 'whole being greater than the sum of it's parts' kinda
thing. the industrial/traffic sound samples were all Stun, & the choir, fuzzy
bass lines & 'car keys' were all Pooey. we went back & forth on some of the
mixing ideas. i had fun after we layered everything.. as i tweaked the
volumes, i kept uncovering more & more sounds-there is so much stuff in
there..

sure how this was going to be accepted. let's just say
we're trying to do our part & keep things interesting

Not my genre. So I can't really offer any decent criticism
nor vote. But it puts me on a train in Germany at night. I
speak a little German, so I understand a few things, but
most is going over my head. And then the drugs kick in...

Joyfully dark, bright mix of fascinating sounds. Listening

special effects. This is the best experimental track I've
ever listened to on MacJams. Whoa, nobody does it better!

Trippy
I need to see a room full of people on X dancing to this.

The female vocal "ahhhhhhhs" are really a trip. I think the
bass my be a bit too upfront and distorted, but I like the
way it ends.

Definitly not something I would listen to more than once
or twice in a lifetime, but it held my interest.

I could see 30 seconds of it being an intro to a song.

stretching the ears
Lots of interesting textures here.

It might have been even MORE interesting had you varied
the background beats to create a contrasting tempo and
mood somewhere in the middle, but this was pretty cool
regardless.

This was like looking at a piece of abstract art, trying to
make sense of the seemingly random dots, daubs,
slashing lines on the canvas.

This piece definitely stretched the ears. But not to the
point of pain.

cool
I listen to a lot of this type of stuff. No, really.

I like to write to it. I can tune it out or space out to it.

Reminds me of some Coil some Soul Whirling Somewhere.

Guessing toward the end I'd have to have quit writing and
just listened as the sounds got more and more distracting.
This is the soundtrack to my life.

a pedestrian point of view
I guess my imagination isn't what it used to be, for instead
of cosmic choirs or alien abductions, over three back-to-
back listenings, it kept reminding me of passing through
the Atlantic subway station here in Brooklyn during
morning rush period. I know - how pedestrian of me.
Nonetheless, I think producing these kinds of sonic
experiments is a fantastic undertaking, made possible by
GarageBand, this web site, and a willingness to
collaborate. Go for it!

Wowzer
Arachnid life forms work dutifully in the complex even
though the blue-green fluid is oozing up out of the floor
and swallowing them. The overseers force them to
continue as they and the machines they are using are
consumed. Angelic spirit creatures fly through every so
often to watch but they do nothing because of the way
they've been treated by the arachnids in the past.

Sci-Fi Soundtrack
Sounds like a soundtrack to a "Sci-Fi Channel Original
Movie." Very disturbing (and that's a good thing!).

The constant clicking is very creepy. Reminds me of the
big bugs in the 1960s movie,"Four Million Years To Earth"
about these insect Martians.

You're either very disturbed, or very talented, or both! (I
meant that as a compliment!)

Hey Underscore - I started this process the other day and
something was goning on that wouldn'd allow me the
complete it, so here I am.

A few monthes ago, Pre- Mungo, Nutz, Perc and now
Breezer, I wouldn'd have had a clue w/ how to be this type
of music. Now I just fasten myself in and ready myself for
one of the most effective ways to be transported to places
that I don't have the skills to arrive at on my own.

Certainly, this tune transported me. You should know, I
scare easily and to a degree that you might not think of a
grown man. This is all to say, that this is not just mere
listening to tell u what I think. This particular tune had me
dealing w/ quite a few of the inferred demons. I know, the
inferrences come from me, you may have intendend
angels but if so, I scared the bjesus out of me! Man what a
ride this one took me on. You can have no idea what the
intensity of something like this tune does to someone like
me. I'm not bitching, just wanted you to know. To give
you some idea, I purposely sleep in small rooms and
facing the door to the hallway w/ the light on. They won't
be sneekin up on me. For fun, people love to casually
walk up to me and say hi just to see if I touched the
ceiling this time...

This one had lots of great fx. I can say that this was ver
well done.

I hope that you read my intent in the many words above,
if not: 8.9.8.9

Keep up the great work!

Coming back to it...
Just had to listen to this one again after not having done so in a
while. And its interesting how each time I listen I could swear
some changes have been made to it. But It's the same, just
hearing new things each time. It's really neat that way.

Hearing it makes me think we gotta do this again (I think I said
that last time I posted), but it also made me think of music versus
the visual arts. With the visual arts we see the whole work all at
once, but with music, we only ever actually experience the
smallest fraction of the work at any one time. Its like scanning a
painting one horizontal sliver at a time. This way, the complete
work can only ever exist in one's mind. And in having the work
revealed this way, our perception of the piece is going to be
flavoured by our own experiencing of it, and our recollection of
that "dance" is the only way the song truly exists: as a unique
sequence of memories.

So, needless to say, I am reminded of certain elements, and also
exposed to elements I have no recollection of. That is why this
piece is so fresh on each listen.

Oh, and there are some neat effects.

_nderscore, I will cook up another idea and e-mail you and stun.
