Everything, Everywhere

Another live-ish track on the Model:Cycles - all the sounds and effects are from the synth alone!


I had a bad week.  I wrote a beat on Thursday, and it was pretty awful.  Friday (today) I sat down to work again, and wrote something I felt really good about.  I decided to add guitar....and then my guitar conked out!  A wire that was soldered to the output jack came loose.  I had to open up the guitar and resolder the wire!  It was really stressful and I was really angry about it since I was right in the middle of recording.  Luckily, I got it fixed, and my Jazzmaster's pickguard is cleverly divided into two sections so you don't have to take the whole thing apart to attend to the volume knob or output jack.  I was running late for a movie date with my husband, so I decided to table the song for next week.  So that will be nice to have a half-finished song to work off of.  After our movie date, I went back into the studio and did this in about 2-3 hours.  It's currently 3:16am and I'm staying up to upload and finish this because I desperately want 2 days off without work/chores or things on my mind.  This song is just one pattern, but it has a "sample length change" section and "random chance" break down to make it feel like there is still variety.  Check out the live tempo reduction fade out smile


I'm in a bad mood and I feel lonely and frustrated and angry and I am overeating.  But still working on music!

Sorry to hear the week went rough. If it's any consolation, this was a really compelling beat.

Agree with Reilly, this is a really compelling beat. The tom fill and chords BUMP super hard! I think there is quite a lot of change and variety happening for just one pattern. It sounds very fluid and free. And the slowdown during the fadeout was crucial.

That sucks about your guitar, but glad you got it fixed! On the bright side, now you have something to look forward to working on for next week.

I hope next week bodes better for you, this is still a pretty cool beat to whip up in 2-3 hours. I really like the chord progression, its upbeat and happy sounding but still has an air of mystery to it.

It's okay buddy, not every week can be a winner. Maybe someday in the future you can listen back to this and feel good vibrations from it.

This is why I do own multiple guitars... wink Happy you were able to fix it. Hope you had a great weekend. smile.

As djippy pointing out, having multiple backup guitars and more backup guitars for your backup guitars is the way to go to handle freak incidents. Or that is what I tell my partner to explain why I need yet another new guitar.

Great kick and I love how the bass kicks around 1:00 and really drives the track. Looking forward to the other track next week!

Technical issues when you're inspired to create are just the worst.  But at least you were able to get it fixed.  And also you were able to pivot to a synth-driven track instead of a guitar driven track.  It's nice to have that diversity sometimes.  I liked when the more bassy synth changed from playing more sustained notes to shorter more propulsive notes around 2:22.  It was a cool moment.

The way to be! Side note, this beat is sick. I love how it fades out and pops back in towards the end.

thats a solid 3 hour session. you should definitely save that staccato instrument sound around 2:30 for a rainy day. great tone and variation. great tempo/fade at the end too!

Good thing your guitar broke, because I'm living for those toms!

October 7, 2020 8:19 am

A solid track! listened twice...
... tune happened the way it was intended for week 40 if you want to think of it that way?

October 7, 2020 11:01 pm

Nice one! Great work. This inspires a little shimmmy shimmy dance I must go commence .... I'm back. Hope this week is better! I'm off to catch up on your last couple tracks I missed!!

The sounds from that machine are so sweet, it gets you right from the start, there was enough variation this remained interesting from start to finish, hope you have a less frustrating week.

Grandiose track. This machine suits you very well. The jazzmaster must be a jaguar?!?!?!? Something is wrong.

Love those playful opening chords.  Your drums always have a way of getting me to nod my head along in agreement.  The sample length part is a nice variation too.  The bar of silence was extra suhweet too!  I wish I could do a 3hr session like this.  My 3hrs usually consist of combing presets lol smile

This is a really fun high energy jam. The tom rolls are really tasty and that droning bass is really thick.  You always have awesome drum beats!
