  • Ambient Jam! Finally!

    http://docwilsonmusic.com/ambient_01.mp3

    This features these guys:

    Some Guy Named Rob
    Doc Wilson
    UV7lng
    Lurid
    Citizen Cain
    Robochimp

    This is the right order, I would appreciate it if the players/producers would provide the info on their parts.

    For those unfamiliar, the idea behind this jam was to pass it around and allow each player to produce his own part, changing the framework at will. My thanks to all who played and produced, I think some will find this entertaining.

    I apologize for the large (13mb) file, I know it will be a bitch to download.

    For my part, I played first. Synthesizers (Steinberr A1 and Halion), and the tinky sounding heavily processed guitar theme.

    Thanks for listening.

        Thanks, gentlemen. I've had a chance to listen a few times now. Like most experiments I think it has some very strong points as well as some very weak points.

          I think some more dynamic variety would be good... maybe an increase into i dunno... a heavy riff with a shreddy type solo or something. It remained at a constant volume most of the piece...

            For my parts, I used some layers of synth swells and processed orchestra samples to accentuate the mood of what Nerve had already laid down. I also added a small, highly processed vocal sample that sounded like a cybornetic bullfrog. Doc plays a lot of sweet acoustic over my section.

              Are you sure you listened to the whole thing? Lurid and Robochimp do quite a bit of shredding.

                  That was me! My bit includes the panned "flashes of sound". I wanted the piece to return to Nerve's original theme.

                  I recorded the "sound flashes" with an Epi Dot, Super Champ and a Dan-Echo. The Dan-Echo has a cool feature that when you turn the repeat knob while a delay is sounding, it sounds like you're slowing down the reel of a tape. I used that effect, but it's kind of hard to hear.

                  I recorded one track, then duplicated the track in n-Track and slightly offset it in time, then panned one track hard left and one hard right. This created the sound movement I wanted. I took both those tracks and duplicated them, then ran them in reverse. It filled in gaps pretty well and I was fairly happy with the result.

                  The telephone conversation came about because I always wanted to use the word "breasteses" in something ever since I heard it in the movie "True Romance"

                        I would like to know who put the bassline down that I hear over the first couple of minutes.
