Holy shit, I need the changes to this. PM me PLEEEAAAASSSEE.

Pareidolic War Pareidolic War

Rated 5 / 5 stars

That piano riff starting at 1:17 nearly brought me to tears, all of those modulations gives the rest of the song a much more aged vibe; as if this war has been going on forever. This is definitely something I appreciately vastly, and the rest of the piece feeds off that mood set at the beginning. The laidback sense of despair around 3:45 definitely makes this song; a small climax for an ever continuing struggle. Good job and good luck man :)

Phonometrologist responds:

That piano riff right there is a short chord progression that was inspired by Bach. The key thing about those three chords is in the descending bass line for the minor One chord to get to the major Sixth. In between is a minor fifth in the first inversion so the bass line is D>C>B. The only problem is that Bach goes over brilliant stuff too fast so I attempted to savor it a bit in this piece. So my mentality in that piano section was a bit more traditional so as to get an "aged vibe." I appreciate you interpreting the piece as well since that is where the art comes in. This war has been going on forever as it goes beyond just our own flesh and blood.

Dude. I really really like the vocalist's voice. This song gives me some really insane imagery and it's nice to hear that you guys haven't let down in quality. Good job guys, and good luck! :)

...Wait, I wasn't following you before?

You have such control over your harmonies I'm amazed. the amount of openness and neutrality that this song gives off is accompanied by a really nice feeling of progression and adventure. I particularly admire how after all these open and odd out phrases you're able to end on as simple of a resolution; I was expecting something interesting to happen, and the fact that it was sweet and to the point was a pleasant surprise. my goodness man, this is great. Good job and good luck :)

SilverPoyozo responds:

Thank you very much, I appreciate it. It was a real struggle to finish though, until I realized that 'simple' was the way to roll with it. Good luck to you too!

Man, I love both of your voices. I also like the composition elements within all the auxillaries, only amplifying the melodic lines in a good way. I've said this so much so far this year, but this is wonderful work. Good job ethereal, and good luck! :)

Thank you sir Nimble, Nimblest of the Nimbles. Good luck to you too and I'm glad you liked my piece!

Right On Time Right On Time

Rated 5 / 5 stars

oh man, this is great. the stop time and instrument sync with the lyrics just add to the emotion. Of course, your style is at all time high, with the accents and melodic lines taking the cake. This is wonderful work Kor. Good job and good luck man! :)

You don't write like this all the time? This sounds like you're a natural beast my friend. wonderful work.

Dance of the Poltergeist Dance of the Poltergeist

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Jeez, this song just screams 'Dark Humor' and proudly displays it too. The use of all these samples hand in hand are particularly characteristic in nature and this totally sounds like something out of a silly SNES game. good job and good luck ! :)

The Trombone Blues The Trombone Blues

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Oh gods, this sounds like something straight out of one of Sidney Bichet's 1930 Albums, full of improvised jumble and whatnot. Especially love that (pseudo?)-half cadence at the end with the kazoo.
There are a couple of latency issues with your trombone playing and the track, but it's barely noticeable, just nit-picking. Now it's time to study moar jazz sam!

samulis responds:

Bleh. Get out. :P

Actually the latency stuff was kinda my fault. The piano part starts right off and I couldn't quite get enough time to prep for the flutter-tongue gliss of evilness so I had to bump everything over and record the trombone track with a lead-in. it probably didn't line up fully. Plus it was 2 AM.

I'm surprised no one has gone crazy about how it ends on the IV chord. :D

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Damn it, just when i'm finishing up my rendition of it to post on NG, I see this. It sounds lovely, even though the claves could be a little softer, and there's a bit of white noise. other wise, this sounds pretty nice. good job bro.

steampianist responds:

Go and post yours i want to hear your rendition of this classic :D

ah yes the white noise was coming from the guitar track cos the guitarists used a computer mic (surprisingly clear though) so i was only able to reduce a little white noise otherwise it'll be flangy

oh and thanks for listening
