Looking to compose For TV and Film. Using Mac and Digidesign.
Record songs structured for vocals so some of these can seem quite repetitive; I arrange so they can be performed by a four-piece and try to vary the sounds of the instrumentation so hopefully I can retain your interest until lyrics enter the picture.
I'm working on it; just finishing up a new tune with, lo and behold, LYRICS.
Guitars by Breedlove, Yamaha, Epiphone, Martin
Bass is Ibanez
Drums are sequenced beat for beat into ReDrum in Reason.
Mics from AKG, AT, Sennheiser, Shure, JTS
Ungnome made the Progressive Rock top 10
@ #8. Right on.
Bagra is on the World/Celtic top ten @ no.6.
Uploaded my 1st. song with a vocal track: Outside.
Bagra- top ten World/Celtic
Nice surprise to see "Bagra" show up in the World/Celtic top ten for a short time. Left me a little confused as to how that happened considering it received so few plays but maybe there's some other process I don't understand that determines that. In any event it was nice to share that small triumph with my family and has encouraged me to spend way too much time inside recording some more. I'll take it.
I generally come up with a riff on GTR, find a tempo, and start recording that into Protools to a simple beat programmed in ReDrum. I can usually find an extension to that initial idea fairly quickly once I'm recording and I'll loop those two ideas, ( or 3, or 4... ), over a couple of times so that they will act as bed tracks.
Once bass lines, melodies or other rhythm parts are layered over and drum tracks become more defined, the "song" may follow the same path I started with or it can change entirely from what I originally started with. In this way I follow an organic path where I don't really know what is going to come out the other end, good or bad.
Some of these pieces are meant as small ideas, others were meant to form part of larger pieces, (and still might); while others are complete song ideas waiting for lyrics or lead instrument lines. I wanted to get a few examples of where I come from as a musician on here. Instrument-wise I am clearly a jack of all trades and master of none but hope these ideas come across as intended.
