Album in production..
    #1429815 - 04/04/03 08:54 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Seeing as so many people here have been kind to give me loads of good feedback on my EP, I've decided to post this thread as a kind of running journal of the production of something a bit more ambitious. I doubt too many people will even read it but hey I feel like it, so here it is!

Album and song titles are provisionally decided, subject to change, and every tune listed already has some basic ideas set down.

The general idea behind the album is that it is a musical documentation of a trip and therefore should hopefully be good to listen to on shrooms! If you time it so that you come down during the final tracks it will make the most sense. But it's early days and this is still just a concept at the moment.

"Tales From Beyond The Horizon"

1 Openings
2 Divined From the Mind
3 Pathway
4 The Cortex Tree
5 Sunburst
6 Cerebrum
7 Fireflies
8 Two Days In
9 Introspective Navigation
10 Spirit Speaks
11 Contentment Under A Full Moon
12 Learning to Dream
13 The Return ("Openings" reprise)

More to follow over the coming months so please check back occasionally!

It's a long way off yet- gotta concentrate on Uni for the next few weeks and want to make this album a lot more involved.. The EP was really just me experimenting with my Triton and took less than 2 weeks. Listening to Shpongle made me realise that tunes are a lot more interesting when they've got more going on. I felt the EP was fairly repetitive with its material and didn't really "go" anywhere. I play flute and bass guitar as well and I love the way these sound along side the electronic stuff. That along with the african and brazillian percussion- Expect to hear something a bit more intense this time..

Met a french dude yesterday who, it transpires, plays african drums and he's expressed an interest in cotributing to "Tales.." This should give a pretty intersting angle to things..

Also confirmed to appear is a freind of mine called Lucy who is a fucking astoundingly good singer.. she's already done session work on commercial recordings and she wants to work with me.. for free! This is a sweet bit of news, believe me..

Damn it I wanted to go to bed hours ago but i keep getting ideas for tunes. can't wait to get stuck into this project full time so I don't have to feel guilty about the fact that I'm not doing uni work!

Small update..

Have decided that 13 tracks is a bit ambitious and probably unnecessary. So some of the titles have gone, some have changed a bit, and there are some new ones:

1 And So We Fall...
2 Cortex Tree
3 Voyaging
4 Divined From the Mind
5 IntroSpectrum
6 How Did We Get To Here?
7 Six Nights In The Abyss
8 Learning to Dream
9 Contentment Under Starry Skies

Pics of my bedroom studio [Re: Rob_K]
    #1539702 - 05/11/03 08:52 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

my musical equipment.. this is where the elysian dream EP was made..





Korg Triton
Yamaha Pacifica electric guitar
Fender Squire Jazz Bass Guitar
Vinatge electroacoustic Guitar
Shure SM58
Trevor James Flute
Boss GT-3 Guitar effects processor
Fostex 380S 12 channel mixer
Sennheiser HD25 Headphones
PC running Acid Pro 4

Oh and there happens to be a Creative Labs Zen mp3 player thingy on top of the monitor that's not supposed to be there cos you can't exactly use it to make music.. but it's quite a cool thing to have cos it stores over 10 days worth of music!

Working on an absolute treat of a tune that will eventually become the album's opener "And so we fall.." It's an acousic track with live drum samples (no electronica yet..), pretty chilled but with a dark edge to it. Slow going at the moment, I'm 3 1/2 minutes in and it should be 10 by the time I'm done.

Feels good to be writing again.. my dissertation is done and dusted so now all I gotta do is chill all day and write music.  :grin:

none of them are finished but I have ideas for all the tracks I have listed and these things take time! In terms of percentage actually recorded and done it's probably about 7%. I've only just finished my final year at university so I've been a bit preoccupied with that the last few weeks..

Oh a small update on the tracklisting.. "fireflies" has become "How did we get to here?" and "skyburst" has become "Voyaging"

Just played "And So We Fall" to a girl my housemate brought home and she said it made her feel "small".  I think that's meant to be good, though not my original intention..  :wink:

After some serious creative blocks, I seem to be back in the "zone".. I think I got a bit burnt out after "And So We Fall".. could barely bring myself to go back to my computer.. but I am back, and good things are afoot..
