Altiplano Vaquero

Filed under: Composition,drums & bass,guitar,vocals,woodwind — steve @ 4:18 pm

“High-plains Cowboy” – a sort of Mexican/Spanish Cowboy piece… a romantic yet sad and lonely life… In the tradition of the great western flics, the Cowboy always stays single, while married to the open land…

Ban-Di SoundFont from DSK, everything else from Independence except for drums from JamStix…

Not Waving, Drowning

Filed under: ambient,Composition,piano,Synth,woodwind — steve @ 11:53 pm

So what if you were drowning and everyone just thought you were waving, so all they do is wave back, grinning? As you struggle to keep your head above water you drift out to sea before finally submerging into the depths below… not too comforting really…

Main flute [Ban-Di] from DSK, plus E-MU  soundfonts, synths from Proteus and flute and piano from Independence…

Acid Gibbon

Filed under: ambient,Composition,drums & bass,piano,Synth — steve @ 4:05 pm

Another sort of ambient piece… Why “Acid Gibbon”? I have no idea – it just seemed to be swinging too fast through the trees for a Sloth…

Electric Piano, Bass and Synths from Independence, Synths and bass from Proteus and drums by JamStix which once again kept on stuffing up and took out all my VSTs which meant they had to be reloaded and everything mixed again >|

Pianiarta

Filed under: Composition,drums & bass,piano,strings — steve @ 9:09 pm

After JamStix kept on stuffing up and hogging the RAM I was finally able to record this draft piano piece (after successive re-starts and turning off start-up items) without excessive ASIO glitches popping throughout the composition – damn, Jamstix is a pain at times… Can’t wait for Cubase 5 with its multi-processor support… Might even buy a 3 gHz Quad processor as well…

Piano, Bass and Strings from Independence, drums by JamStix…

UPDATE [19-06]: Added string section from Independence – damn JamStix was a real pain in the butt this morning…

Space Whales

Filed under: ambient,Composition,drums & bass,Synth — steve @ 8:14 pm

Another ambient sort of piece with crying whales somewhere in space. In space, no-one can hear you scream, but you can sure hear the whales.

Synths by E-MU Proteus VX and Independence, basses from Independence, drums by JamStix…

Not So Evil Piano

Filed under: ambient,Composition,drums & bass,piano,Synth — steve @ 1:03 pm

A kind of ambient piece that was originally going to be based around an evil piano – however it didn’t come out so evil afterall…

Rhodes Piano and Bass from Independence, Synth from E-Mu Proteus VX, and Drums by JamStix…

Suspensia

Filed under: ambient,Composition,drums & bass,piano,strings,vocals — steve @ 9:57 pm

So, after 4 months of study, I get to compose some music again. This is a draft run of “Suspensia” – a track aimed at a thriller type movie. This draft contains some work by Ed Lynch – effectively the middle section.

Piano, guitar and bass by Independence 1.5, drums by Jamstix 2.5, vocals by EMU/Creative soundfonts.

UPDATE [June 11]: Remixed using “epicVerb” on the piano from http://varietyofsound.wordpress.com/downloads/

Sounds quite good for no cost – better than the Cubase 1.0 reverb!
