Re: Gift of Music 2020/2021

Thanks for putting this together Niveous! Really enjoyed listening in bed this morning, good start to the day. Particularly enjoyed the HPH Basket Case, the cat cameo on the super-cute sockpuppet cover and Micah somehow creating gold out of an Idles song (I hate Idles, sorry). Excellent take on the ...

Re: Fun-A-Day and Jamuary 2021

Getting a bit experimental today, this one was made with two iPad apps (Gauss for the tape loop stuff and Drumcomputer for the beats) and I mostly tweaked them live as I recorded into Reaper, with just a little bit of editing afterwards. Probably a bit long but I kinda like it! https://soundcloud.co...

Re: Silence blaring for (A 9/11 Every Day reviews)

I figured this title would either put people off entering or result in a lot of annoyingly topical lyrics, so I'm pleasantly surprised that this fight was so busy and so full of gems. add : definitely the best take on the optional challenge. This is a great example of the style and the lyrics are ve...

I started working on an ELO cover today but I think I need to take a break and finish it tomorrow.
It is done! This was fun.

Re: Fun-A-Day and Jamuary 2021

Really enjoying your instrumentals Sam! Excellent wobbly synth work.

I recorded the Song Fight entry that I wrote yesterday for today's song. It's my favourite of the month so far I think!

Re: Fun-A-Day and Jamuary 2021

Going off-piste a little but yesterday I helped out with drums for a GOM song, and today I wrote my entry for the next fight but I want to spend a bit of time on it so not posting anything for the SECOND DAY in A ROW 😲

This is still encouraging me to be super productive though.

Haha I've been seeing that ad too. I'm glad I never clicked on it and found out how cheap it was. That could have been dangerous.

Re: Fun-A-Day and Jamuary 2021

I used my "work" day productively today and wrote and recorded this one, all about how I wish I liked GBV, but I don't.

Re: Fun-A-Day and Jamuary 2021

Ahhh I didn't pick up on it being a cover, that makes more sense now somehow? Loving the synths!

I got experimental today and made a rhythmic techno thing from chopped up sounds from the BBC archives.

Re: Fun-A-Day and Jamuary 2021

I assumed the weekend would provide me with more energy and motivation. But it didn't! It provided me with backache and a hangover. Still, this one's quite fun. A noisy ode to online discos.

Re: Fun-A-Day and Jamuary 2021

I assumed I'd have more energy and inspiration when the weekend arrived but... I didn't. Still, this was quite fun - I sampled my Reface CS into my Casio SK-5 for each of the instrumental parts (and used the built-in bongo samples). Feel like it could have been the start of a fun song but I am total...

Re: Fun-A-Day and Jamuary 2021

Low on energy and inspiration today, and spent too much time setting up Ableton on recently-upgraded laptop (first seven songs were done in Reaper).

Little synthy thing will have to do, hopefully get more into it tomorrow.

Sad little country-pop song today. Really enjoyed this one, super-obvious chords etc. but I like the result.

Re: Music Room Storage and Organization

Also here's my messy cupboard of stuff (sorry for double post, max three images per post I think?). Badly needs sorting out, there's a bunch of stuff in here that never gets used.

Re: Music Room Storage and Organization

Main desk - set up for work at the moment but I just swap the laptops at the weekend. Or in theory if I get inspired in the week, but ugh working from home kills my enthusiasm.
