Tree Blood

By CosmicCairns on June 10, 2016 2:38 am

This week features guest vocals from the one and only Bobby Bergland who happened to be in town for work.  I laid down some water bottle percussion and added some embellishments of cello, bass, electric guitar, synth, and a few various sound effects.

  I can kind of see that now that you mention it.

  Thanks!  It's always nice to get a chance to collaborate with Bobby.  I always enjoy your collaborations with him.

  Thanks!  It would be fun to make an album in this style.

  That was the result of this metal bottle that we discovered has some really cool resonances if you fill it up with a little bit of water.  I'm not sure if I was fully able to capture that here so I might have to play with it some more in the future.  But I did like the reverse hit sounds I got out of it!

Wonderful track! All the parts blend together amazingly well!

Love those vocals, and the really interesting sounds accompany and set the mood perfectly. Yeah, the reverse metal bottle is awesome. I used a metal tea kettle with water in it recently, when sloshing the water around it was amazing. Gotta try reversing it now!

Mystical and obscure music. Very cool instruments and percussions. Great singing. Congratulation to this wonderful collab. You always can send Bobby to Germany. He will be welcome chez moi.

Yeah whenever I find a cool sound I can't help reversing it just to see what it sounds like.

Thanks.  I will pass the word on to Bobby,  He's a great singer and I'm sure he would love to visit Germany sometime.  smile

I really like this piece!  This is how pop music should be made!  It puts me in mind of David Sylvian, instrumentation is fantastic, everything is just off-kilter enough to hold together with centripedal force!

Thanks!  I always kind of enjoy stuff that seems like it's going to fall apart but somehow manages to stick together.  I haven't listened to much David Sylvain.  Perhaps I should check out some more.
