Telomere Repair Factory

By CosmicCairns on February 12, 2020 12:25 am

I started this off as a bass and electric guitar jam.  I felt like I wanted to add some additional sounds so I used some samples I recorded on my phone and have been sitting on for awhile.  I had several recordings I made of fireworks going off last 4th of July.  And then last Christmas my brother who lives out of town visited along with my 7-year old niece and 5-year old nephew.  I wanted to get some sample of kid chatter, but I also wanted to get them to make some kind of weird noise.  I have a toy sphero BB-8 robot that I had brought over and the kids had played with all night, so I asked them "what does BB-8 sound like?" and recorded their responses. And then I added just a little touch of microkorg to the proceedings and called it a day.

These sound effects are marvelous.
And the guitar makes it kind of hypnotic over the time... Guess this is the theme for a wild weird party smile
Whats that voice like sound in the end? Voice or Synth?

Very athmospheric... makes a great impression of a party, the two lead guitars mesh nicely too. The fx recordings are definetly important here, not just and add-on.

  Thanks!  The main voices on here are the kids, although you can hear me talking to them a little.  (They were initially kind of brief in their response, so I had to prompt a little more out of them.)   I also picked up some background conversations in my fireworks recordings so you might hear a little bit of voices there.  Otherwise you might be hearing the microkorg.  There's a little bit of it in there somewhere.

  This would definitely be completely different without the effects.  They felt necessary to me.

  Thanks!  I've been meaning to use those fireworks samples for awhile and finally found a place for them.

When I read your description I thought, Whoah that's a lot to cram into one track and yeah... It's hectic! I think I'm gonna have that riff buzzing around my head for a while too.

I love those droidy kids! This is hypnotically fun and catchy, and a little woozy like a party may feel. Nice one!

  Yeah there's a lot of different sounds in there, but I wanted something more than just the guitar and bass.

  Yeah, I'm thinking about re-purposing that kid sample into something else later.  They actually made some pretty cool sounds that I think I can utilize again in a different context.

Haha yes, the droid kids add so much to this. Cool track!

The fireworks make for some excellent textures in the track.  With the kid-droids, fireworks and guitars it recreates that happy july 4th atmosphere too!  Super creative ideas!

  Thanks!  Droid kids aren't something I can access every day, so I had to get it while the gettin' was good.

  Thanks!  Fireworks do seem to make an instant festive vibe.

Pretty cool idea to add those recordings onto this rocking jam. It ends up in a freaky party athosphere.
Well done CC.

  Thanks!  It felt a little "sparse" to me pre-sound effects and I had been looking for somewhere to use those sounds so it seemed to fit.

Cool sounding raw bass and guitar. Samples are kind of trippy. Love the sky rocket sample!

  Thanks!  We bought a cool package of fireworks last year and we were a little ways in and I was like I should really be recording some of these sounds.  Finally found a place to use them!

I love that all of this is going on over some surreal drum patterns. Well, who am I kidding? A ton of this is surreal. Toward the end is almost enough to just about put you in a real place and time with the samples coming together. Part of the melody reminds me of "Ants Go Marching In" for some reason.

  "Ants Go Marching In" is a blast from the past for me.  I remember having that on some kind of kid's music tape when I was young.  It's been ages since I've heard it, but I remember it well enough to sing it to myself and I think it's that descending line that's similar, now that you mention it.
