Description
Decided to make a contest song and this is what happened. Obstensibly about those that control the world from behind the scenes. My hardware synths make their MacJams.com debut. Though I'm not really a singer, thought I'd give it a try. Vocals recorded with my daughter crawling underneath the stool I was sitting on. Sort of gives you perspective (scary song and lyrics are actually fun!) Not sure if it's really industrial, but one of my students said it was.

First comment, first vote, first hit.

Ok, love the beats as it opens. Reminds me of Lycia.I need
to learn how to get such a fat sound. I despised loops
until Tumi. Now I am thinking of buying the set and
hunting down more. Sadly, I don't think I would use them
correctly,

Students?

Industrial works. Damn god song. Pump the vocals Scare
the kid. Therapy isn't that expensive, besides, you turned
out fine.

Not sure I understand the lyrics. Dumb them down!

Beautiful.

Thanks for the comments! I agree, most loops aren't terribly musical, but the
TUMi freebees rock. The student's I referred to are from my Honors English
and Psychology classes. Occasionally I'll edit something on my eMac at work
and they sometimes get to hear. I will dumb those lyrics down! Sorry to
confuse! :)

Yep
that is industrial alright. This has a great sinister feel to it.

You can use childrens laughter to mak some scary stuff. Check out my song "self". That my 2 year old laughing on that track.

This is very good! I downloaded! Good luck in the contest!

i like the movement & floaty feel to this-very hard to pin
down the sound. complicated, but simple at the same
time. very cool

Thanks for the comment and the download. I'm finding that MacJams harbors
a pretty cool bunch of folks.

Industrial used to mean.....
....shitload of non-tonal, non-rhythmic noise. People who
grew up with that definition say that now it means "disco".

Anyway, yeah, this has some nicely aggresssive noises.

Weird
But I like it.
It has a dark resonant feel to it.
I like the way you have done the vocals. That perc is a bit
heavy in the mix, I got some very bassy feel from it, but
all in all, I really like this track a lot.

Nice one

Illuminati are Lizards and Eat Insects
Spooky and smooth and good beat and sproingy distorted bass drum /
bass and icy and blue and silver and shards of sharp metal look out and
why would the illuminati want to warn me?
