Pirate Circus

By miraclemiles on March 22, 2020 10:40 pm

Not a commentary on geo-political affairs or anything. Just had a live session with collaborator AM Faulks, and the organ made me think of a circus (I might not remember what circuses are actually like though). Did some mixing, arranging and recording of new vocals and drum parts this week. Sliced up guitar samples played new parts. Added some ambient audio recorded on the pirates ride at dsneyland on a recent trip there. As soon as I did I thought I could imagine this playing at some weird kind of pirate party with circusey performances. That may be all in my head, but I'm enjoying the image for now. Anything to distract from those geo-political affairs and global pandemics. Hope you all are doing well. I feel fortunate to have a healthy family so far, and still have a job I can work from home.

Well we all gotta have a Pirate Circus now and then hmm? If this track had a flavour, I would say pineapple. Take care!

I'm getting the pirate party vibes.  They could shoot people out of their cannons and have trapeze artists up in the masts.  You could definitely slip a few clowns in among the pirates and nobody would probably even blink an eye.

Excellent, this puts a big smile on my face, good use of the disneyland field recordings and good thing you got to enjoy disneyland before it got shutdown.

Nice guitar layers and hammond like keyboard. Funky pirate circus!

These are some friendly pirates!  They come to party, not to steal.

This doesn't sound like either pirates or a circus, but then who knows what those kooky folks are up to.

Nice work on the piano.

Funkay. I like the flutey synth a lot, it's refreshing like an ice cold citrussy fizzy purple beverage.

What are those kooky folks up to these days? I don't know either! And I don't know what they sound like. I used to live in Portland Oregon and it seems like every day there was some pirate party, or pirate circus party, they just listened to trancey EDM though. Thanks for listen!

Ah yeah - that beverage sounds real nice right about now, hope these was refreshing! I'll have to play around with that flutey synth some more! Thanks!

Amazing tones, super lively big_smile I cranked this one up! I'm retaining my sanity by folding clothes next to the window wide open, sun and air are coming in and paired with this fun track it's making my day better smile
