Futurists – Globules: First take (January 27, 2009) (download here).
so before you push the button let me mention here that this song isn’t good (yet).
in fact, it’s so bad, I wasn’t going to post it at all, but then I remembered that the whole point of this blog is for people to follow the stuff I’m working on from junk, to not half bad, to… who knows. So here it is.
what I’d really like to do is to retool this entire song so that it sounds a lot like what you hear between minute 3 and minute 4 of the current version. I really like that! It seems to work.
the biggest short-term improvements will come from getting rid of the buzzy lead (that comes from my Roland JP-8000 – I thought it would work better than it did, but it turned out to be extremely abrasive), and remove those weird metallic swishes that go back and forth every now and then from ear to ear. They really stand out, and not in a good way.
big changes to come with this song, to be sure.
and by the way, readers of this blog are always welcome to download, play or include in a mix anything I put up here. That’s one of the reasons I’m doing this. In the future I’m also going to be releasing some royalty-free samples for musicians and producers to include in their own music. For this song, I’ll probably post an octave of samples of that squelchy bassline (right at the beginning of the song). I kinda like it!
