Re: Aarararrrargh! (Screaming Into the Void reviews)

Brown Word & Big Whine - This is pandemonium, like a Hieronymus Bosch painting put to music. You don’t have time to take in one part and establish a feel before it moves on. And another track with a slurry mix. Too many sounds all competing in the same frequency range. It’s like you’re cramming in ...

Re: Aarararrrargh! (Screaming Into the Void reviews)

- I'm still having trouble what the lyrics are getting at. Seems like a fever dream, which matches the musical tone, but I think it's going above my head. I kind of had trouble with focusing what the lyrics are about and I wanted something vague. It's sort of the controlled chaos of life, lots of p...

Re: Aren't we all just (Screaming Into The Void prefight)

Brown Word is in. I used my dynamics this time. I think. Does the song lead somewhere? I don't know. The void is certainly involved.

Re: And now you see (How It Comes Apart reviews)

Brown Word and the Big Whine - Those doubled vocals in the chorus are super girl punk and I love it. I like the background vocals at the end too. My only complaint is that the lead guitar makes it a little hard for me to focus on your vocals in the verse. Thanks for the review! How I struggled migh...

Re: Don't wink at me (Eyes In The Dark reviews)

Eyes in the Dark reviews I was looking forward to and listening for the spooky sounds and wasn't disappointed. This is also the fight of awesome synth tones and execution - coincidence? I think not. Phlebia - Good start with Melvins-y bass sound. Good juxtaposition of vocals that sound hot and a tou...

Re: Just like that (How it Comes Apart prefight)

Brown Word in - sans playing instrument how it wasn't meant to be played - I totally forgot and by the time I remembered, everything was in its place.

Re: The Song Fight Diary: A YouTube Video Series

Thanks again JB for having me on the series. I thought of this when I was working on two songs this weekend (next title and non-Song Fight) and how my writing process for these was both the same and different than Smoke. All started with some kernel of an idea - Smoke explained in video, Comes Apart...

Re: vochlea Dubler live audio-to-MIDI mic

I just heard about this yesterday and it sounds awesome. One of my go-to writing techniques for brass pieces is to first just sing the parts - this would be a game changer for that alone. Analogously, I like the DAW I use, Bitwig, a LOT, because it is intuitive and you aren't caught in the DAW, and ...

Re: Don't wink at me (Eyes In The Dark reviews)

Brown Word and the Big Whine : The mix sounds really good. I don't know them well, and maybe it is just a spooky female voice, but does this sound at all like Souxie and the Banshees? I hear a lot of cool elements in this arrangement, but maybe the levels could change a bit more to feature them? Th...

Re: Hold your breath for (The Smoke Is Rolling In reviews)

In order of listen: Sweeney Toad - The delivery could use a little pep, perhaps some sass even. I appreciate the Halloween theme of (teabagging) werewolves. Spooky music. Pigfamer Jr. - I like this right away. The doubled vox sound good and the hook is a good one. You get a great guitar tone - go wa...

Re: Is it normal to forget how to play something?

When I play something regularly it forms a geography in my mind. I don’t smoke but when I used to I had now and then found myself suddenly not knowing where I was in the song or how to get back to it. It would happen when I get stoned and started thinking too consciously about what I was doing. Did ...

Re: Is it normal to forget how to play something?

Yes, it has certainly happened to me. I’ve played in a band for years, learning repertoire by memory, comeback a year later and have forgotten, though usually I’ll remember the part, or at least be tipped off by the other players’ parts, the muscle memory has been lost and I’ll find myself struggling.

Re: Did you see that?! (Eyes in the Dark prefight)

Brown Word in with the spooky stuff. Or maybe it's just regular Brown Word? Was trying to channel WreckdoM's Looking Glass from Nur Ein VIII but ended up with something different (though perhaps of the same creepy universe).

Re: Don't breathe (The Smoke Is Rolling In prefight)

In with my take on some cheesy pop, though it probably doesn't sound like pop at all, it probably sounds like BW+TBW since that's what I do :D
