Y U NO SYNTHING

Postby ElectricPuppy » Thu Nov 07, 2013 7:14 pm

Oh hai, Treehouse. :wave: This is the Official Excuse Thread.

I'm not synthing right now because a) work has become hard, and b) I committed to making a Christmas gift that involves hard labor and sawdust, so that's where my "free time" is going for now.

And now, the rest of you will EXPLAIN YOURSELVES.

My excuses:

1) Feeling uninspired. (think I'll start a fire...)

2) Can't get over the perceived mental block that I can't synth again until I get a new synth.

3) Lazy

ETA: How sad is it that I only just made a soundcloud account yesterday. :facepalm:

I have actually been synthing a little bit.

Seem to be just getting used to working full time again that other bits of my life are slowly getting slotted back in around it.

Last weekend I finished that dumbass song about Edelstahl.

Also, I seem to have started work on a cover of Karl Jenkin's Sanctus, from The Armed Man... I'm imagining cybermen doing their stuff to it... early cybermen, when they were still kind of pitiable.

One of the nice things I'm finding about that track is that the arrangement is quite minimal, with mainly the bass and treble percussion holding it together, so there's room for some quite big soounds in there, like the kind of sh*t you can't usually get away with in a mix.

Omgosh! I secretly LOVE Karl Jenkins! This could possibly cause me to overlook your past transgressions in musical tastes and elevate your status to my New Best Fren™ !

I would REALLY like to hear your track :D

lol well I am not that far on with it, but I usually know when I've got into something like I'm going to finish it, so I suspect I will.

That is awesome. Well, when it's finished, or even prior unless you're like me and won't let people hear until it's done or almost done, I'd still like to listen. :)

I've actually been synthing, usually recording at least one simple slow improvised ternary form ditty every week or so for joy and fun.

What I've been too lazy to do is uploading n' sharing. :wave:

Yes. But now I feel like I need to change the music I'm making from soft pretty New Age style to hardcore industrial make-the-goths-sway style. :freak:
