  • My latest tune is a trance tune

    In the same way that Siberian Khatru is a disco tune:manembarrassed:

    Here it is. Hope you like it. It's called 'Magic Spell'  http://soundcloud.com/songwriter101/magic-spell

    Let's see you put that on the same album as some of your rock stuff!

    = D

    You seem to have dropped into the IDM bag pretty easily and seem to have a pretty sure grip on the controls. It's easy to get things 'wrong' jumping genre tracks, and leave yourself looking like a stylistic platypus, so this can be appreciated for all the stuff it gets right and perhaps not taken to task for being a step or two back from the fashion-forward edge. And how would you rather go down in History... trendy or timeless?

    Taken along with the lyrics, I think you've managed to get something that works together nicely. There's very much the feel of one of those goggle-eyed pop star paeans to the guru of the moment that were the rage back when I was in college. [cue sitar gliss] 

    But I think it can rise above that interpretation, as well, to work on a level where the irony might get a little more rareified and the yearning for transcendence less easy to laugh off...

      Thanks, blue

      Your reviews are always most welcome, even though they're rather too cerebral for my little brain to comprehend  :manwink:

      (By the way, I'm no longer on Facebook. I got tired of all the crap on there)  :mansad:

        Yeah, I taught myself to write reviews from poring through the review sections of High Fidelity and Esquire when I was a kid. = )


        With regard to FB, I mostly use it to keep in some kind of touch with old 3DW friends I don't see much. Or annoy them with political rants, whatever comes first.
