Steam Dream

By Ipaghost on March 6, 2016 11:58 pm

The main pad sound was from the Vancouver steam clock I recorded back in 2014.
I started this track for last WB, and decided to use it this week, since I've been busy with the Red Bull Music academy application.

This is the clock in question.

I rediscovered an old one this week, too.  Another nice performance from you.

This one's marvelous. I think you've got a lot to offer, so best of luck with the Red Bull thing.

Good to hear your excursions in downtempo (is the bass heavily bit-reduced?). Kudos for bringing back the pan flute from the 90's with such a style

Bad thing is now I've got to search for a GIF of a cat surfing cosmic waves on top of a Korg M1 workstation (you've been warned) wink

No M1's yet, but cute cat. Still searching...

Thanks! I personally think this one needs a lot of work, but I can't think of how...

Thanks! Although chances are slim, only 2 people from chicago have been selected in the last 18 years they have been doing rbma. And protman was one!

Very cool how you build chords with separate samples for each note. Nice modulation too, keeps things going strong til the end.

March 7, 2016 6:01 pm

PUMPIN'! Great work!

Not sure how you noticed that detail! I guess I could have pitched a single note, but I try to use as many notes as I have available, and pitch them in between. Most samplers can do this, but I find kontakt to be the least painful. I'm actually surprised it sounds ok coming from a cell phone video!

I love your work!  I hope you get into the RBMA!  I had no idea such a thing existed, I'll have to apply next year!

You should! Although the application is really grueling 17 pages, 50 questions, plus a cd, a couple of photos. Try to start early!
