Oracle of the Wild Woods

By CosmicCairns on October 6, 2020 10:55 pm

This is a mostly instrumental track I knocked out in an afternoon on synth and guitar.  There's a little bit of wordless vocals as well. No big story behind this one, just kind of getting in the zone and jamming.

That's something we could all use from time to time, especially this year.

I could happily listen to more tracks of you just jamming out and exploring ideas. This was really cool.

Sick jam dude smile I like the wordless vocals.

This year definitely needs it.

Thanks!  Sometimes it's nice to just jam.

Thanks!  I do like words, but sometimes I feel like they're just not needed.  Sometimes I think a track is better without them, even if I still like having a vocal sound in there.

Interesting mish mash of ideas. It sounds good to let go and explore whatever idea and inspiration that appears. smile

Cool to hear how you continually evolve your sound and move into new territories.  Non-word vocals give this a great meditative feel and I enjoy the new synth elements you've been adding.

this track develops nicely and gets more and more intense towards the end. Even you used words without lyrics, I really enjoy tracks with your voice, because it is your CC"brand", like your unique and freaky guitartechnique, which you performed here again. The melody is peaceful and positive like the hole song. Is it an univeral mantra or just only a jam? For me it was beautiful gift of CosmicCairns spirituality.

Yeah, I didn't really have a set idea starting out, I just sat down at my keyboard and let something kind of flow out and then I just built on it from there.  No destination in mind, just seeing where it went.

I figure over the course of 52 weeks, it's a good opportunity to venture in a few different directions.  I have my sort of wheelhouse, as I'm sure we all do, but it's fun to wander outside it a little bit sometimes, too.

Thanks!  I like to have at least a little vocal element in most tracks, although I'm not opposed to strict instrumentals either.  I suppose you could look at it as a universal mantra.  Maybe I just sort of tapped into something and rode on it for a little bit.

Nice title. This one made me happy. It goes to some nice places, a nice walk through nature and the woods. So good to just experiment and let what comes be as it may.

Yeah, definitely fell into the vibe pretty quickly with this one and then it was just a matter of rolling with it.  Yay for experimentation!

Really fun track. Love the textures!

These are the most fun sessions in my opinion.  I love writing lyrics but I always way over analyze them to the point where its stressful.  Nothing stressful about coming up with a cool instrumental part and layering a bunch of other cool ass parts on top. This one's really cool man, I love how much you were able to build onto it.  Its fun to selectively listen to all of the individual parts.

Yeah, I don't always feel like writing lyrics either.  It's a lot more work and it's putting yourself out on more of a limb.  There's definitely lyrics I've written in the past for old songs that make me cringe now.  But I do like songs with words, so I keep doing 'em anyway.  Glad to hear you liked listening to the layers on this one.  At first I thought maybe I had overdone it.  My first mix was a bit muddy, but I took a second pass at it and thought it came out better.  There's still probably room for improvement, but at least you can kind of listen to the individual parts.

Really cool that you just sat down and jammed this out. I really miss that style of music making! Great blend of instruments, everything feels green and warm heart

Thanks!  Sometimes I start out with a fairly formed idea, sometimes I start out with no idea at all.  Both ways are fun I think.

Dig that bass tone and the wordless vocal thing is cool.  Sometimes jam type tracks are great to revisit to and develop.

Yeah definitely.  Sometimes it's just about getting some raw ideas out.

Excellent jam of ideas.  Really enjoyed the guitars and ah-ah vocals.

Thanks! I think my original vague idea was to have nothing but synths, but then I got further along and I thought the guitars and vocals might add a nice element, so glad to hear they're working!
