Made a little track this week with old hardware setups. MPC into Meazzi-Amp with flange. Added some female choir choppings, guitar, sitar, xaphoon and piano, recorded with the most lofi tapecasstterecorder I could find. The song became practically the essence of my musical fingerprint. This week I noticed, that I reached the second round in weekbeats, because I started 2014 week 20. Feeling happy but exhausted.

Lots of cool sounds to unpack in this one.  A whole trippy sonic world.  Really nice stuff.  Kind of gets a jazzy vibe when that horn comes in.  I'm guessing that's the xaphoon?  I don't know what a xaphoon is so I just looked it up.  Very cool.

Aber so was von holy. Passend zu Pfingsten und den Glocken der Kirche neben meinem Fenster. Oder sind's die Bells auf der Aufnahme? Kann's nicht sagen, so sehr hat's mich in die Musika reingezogen.

Love the layers on this, amazingly deep work. And great groove!

As the comments above said (sans bells). Real depth! The Xaphoon is wild.

Didn't know what a xaphoon was until now, great sounds from that! You have created a wonderful world of sounds here, held together by the cool groove. Well done!

a xaphoon is as big as a flute but sounds like a sax.
I highly recomment this video, how xaphoons are made and tuned!

I dig the sound. Guitars are very cool. The part with the Xaphoon is marvelous, with all that crazy sounds in the background.
Funny that you played the Xaphoon. Just readed a bit about this thing at the weekend.
I read some reviews and people say that it's hard to get a tone out of it... compared to a Sax...
I barely get a note out of a real sax. So i thought i shoud stay away...
What's your opinion? Do you play Saxophon?

No, one of the few things I did not try.
Xaphoon is easy to play. Fingers like a flute, mouthpiece like a clarinet.
A good Saxophon is much more expensive and harder to play I guess.
Of course the sax has a bigger sound. So, you do nothing wrong
with a xaphoon.  Danke Dir für die gute Kritik.

Really cool freaky sounds here. Love it!

That choir is going apeshit. Well done.

May 25, 2018 3:22 pm

The excellent drum groove becomes super addictive when the xaphoon and guitar lines dance in the background.  Really cool track!
