Music is the key (+ a link to my online shroom EP)
    #1403481 - 03/23/03 01:09 PM (21 years, 4 months ago)

Hi guys this is my first post so may i say it's a pleasure to be here..

I was introduced to shrooms on the 7th of Jan this year in a little loft space in bournemouth surrounded by beautiful pictures, lava lamps and a weird fibre-optic flower thing that changes colour.. we drank a blend of shrooms and fruit juice and within 1/2 hour the people in the pictures were smiling and shrugging at me.. it was the most incredible experience of my life!

The music was what really did it though.. We listened to Dark Side of The Moon 3 times (literally) and barely even noticed. Banco de Gaia, Delerium, basically if it was trippy, and chilled, we listened to it. This is really the point of my post. I find that music can totally control where your trip goes. In fact i was inspired to write some music of my own (I'm a music tech student..) to listen to while shrooming. Basically, I was totally inspired by my experience and I felt good that something creative and positive could come out of what I was doing.

So- if anyone wants to listen to what I came out with, go HERE . And if you like what you heard please drop me a line! Otherwise, I recomend Banco, delerium et al- it takes it to the next level!

yes, i had a level five trip once, when the music was sad or evil, i was sad. when the music was happy, i got happy. theres actually a part of your brain that recognizes music. interesting, no?

Welcome.
Are You Shpongled, Rob?

thanx! Sadly I am not at all shpongled at the moment because I have about 6 weeks to go before I finish uni forever. shrooms make me panic about the pressing issues in my life. However, after that day, you know I'm gonna have some ready and It's gonna be mayhem. I can't wait!

what did you think of it bigidiot? It kind of works better if you burn them all onto a cd and listen to the whole lot.. it was all written with tripping in mind so hopefully it should take you somewhere pleasant!

this is quoted from a post on another forum where I know people, so it's probably more in depth than you wanted, but might be of interest anyway..

Korg Triton
Acid Pro 4
Cubase VST 6
Soundforge 6
"Vintage" electroacoustic guitar
Shure SM58 mic (for vocals and guitars)

Samples:

track 2 (True love doesn't wait) - Eyes wide shut (Nichole Kidmans final speech of the film)
track 4 (Phases of angels) - Air - eating sleeping waiting and playing (documentary)

ok so that probably constitutes copyright infringement. What ya gonna do??

The poem whispered on track 3 is written by someone called "lizard" and was found at www.erowid.org. It is apparantly inspired by the use of Salvia Divinorum. Mental stuff if anyone's ever tried it. scary. It was read by a lovely friend of mine called Faye. IN fact if you go here http://www.erowid.org/plants/salvia/salvia.shtml you'll see the poem I used. it's right on the main page!

All music and beats were programmed in cubase, generated on the triton, edited on soundforge and sampled/looped in Acid Pro 4.

there ya go! hopefully more to follow in a few months when I have some more time on my hands..

Shrooming is great for your compositions. I listened to some music I"d written, and gained great insight into directions it could go. I wrote a song while tripping that I really like. When I write music while i'm stoned, it usually doesn't stand the test of sobriety. but the stuff that I wrote / worked on while tripping is still really good.

hey thanks!

unfortunately my webspace only stretches to 30 megs, so I can't post both, and I prefer WMA cos it's better quality. you could try converting it or if you really want I could email it to you. I'd be honored if you considered putting it on your CD! The only thing is if you want to release it commercially, tracks 2 and 4 would be no good as they contain copyrighted material (ie, samples from film/documentary) but feel free to use whichever track you feel fits in with the rest! just let me know first and I'll polish it up a little to make it sound better.

as for school.. I go to the university of kingston upon thames in London, England, studying music and technology. all good fun..

Rob

thanks I will do! I hope to complete a new selection of tunes sometime around mid July when I get the time to work on it. Will post again when that happens! (though of course i plan to stick around in the meantime cos this seems like a cool forum)

I've had so much positive feedback from people that it has inspired me to start the groundwork for another album. Having heard some of the tunes from the likes of shpongle and infected mushroom and the like, I expect there will be some marked differences next time round. The Elysian Dream ep was my first foree into the world of electronica so hopefully the next one should be better. I'll have more time on my hands and am tentatively planning a full 15 track album. Song titles have already been decided and the album will be loosely themed around a pschonautical journey. Anyway, just wanted to say I'm glad the music went down well- it really has given me the confidence to keep writing!

I'd also like to appeal for samples to use in tunes.. Basically if any of you have the means to record yourselves talking about the mushroom experience or anything spiritual / mystical while tripping I'd love to hear from you.

thanks again

Rob

Nice to see the experience didn't end at the "chemical" comedown for ya mate.

I haven't listened to the music yet but will give it a spin when I get a momment.

Rob you should check out Cubase SX; its newer, much more organized, and the automation kicks ass :smile:

Sx is an exellent interface it has to be said.
What kinda stuff do you produce strumpling?

Shroomery CD eh...Sounds like an exellent idea. I've got a few psychedelic inspired tracks that I wouldn't mind parting with. Plus I'm always working on new material.

Whoops sorry bout hijacking your thread Rob  :blush:
