Music You've Made
 
So I kinda figured there were a couple of people here who write/play music. I like to write because I've been playing since I was little, but that isn't here or there.

Here is a song I've written about an ex that I had. It's pretty basic so don't expect solid gold or anything like that.

My roots are in punk rock, southern rock, and reggae. This is a dub style tune.

Dub is basically a type of dance/jamming music I suppose.

Eitherway tell me it sucks, or it needs this, or it's good.

Here it is.

This thread is to encourage anyone who writes music to post it. Criticism is always cool, but being a dick isn't. lol

I'm building a cigar box guitar. All I need to do is find the right neck.

I feel your song in my toes, MJ.

MattJack, I think that sounded pretty good. Did you play all the instruments yourself and record/mix it yourself or what?

Fathom, when you finish that pixplz.

Well I'm sure you've already heard my comedic music with A.L.E. and other stuff like the "I Will Beat Pacman" and "Dead Backstreet Boys" tunes, but I also did some more experimental stuff a few years back. Nothing amazing, just messing around really, but here it is if you want to take a listen:

i didnt even pay attention to his musical tastes tbh, i just remember him having some mad bands on the go. it was this thread i remember - http://www.i-mockery.com/forum/showthread.php?p=245634.

MattJack Sep 20th, 2007 07:58 PM

Fathom, good luck on that dood, I wanna see some pictures. And thanks. Drink a beer or 8, then do some illegal substance(s) to get the full effect of the tune

Wow thanks man, I appreciate it. The only thing I didn't write/play was the bassline. My best friend writes all the bass parts.

I played/recorded/arranged all other parts in the song. Instead of doing actual drums, I just made a loop or two and used that for the main beat. I played with a synth to get the electro sounds mixed in too.

maybe I'll put another up one day.

I kinda like it dood. I'm completely new to electronic music, so I listen to everything with an open mind. Is there something you are going for? or is it just you completely experimenting?

You use a lot of ambience in these tunes, which isn't a bad thing. To me, and I mean no disrespect, it sounds like some of these tunes could be in video games. Maybe not all of them, but Weakday, Rupture, and Walking On Fish immediately conjure video game-esque mental pictures. Eitherway, I think it's cool.

I made a bunch of recordings of sounds from different objects. Some of it sounds pretty fucked up ( idid one with multiple radio frequencies playing at one, and static).

I'm pretty sure this counts as music:

Our Love Is a Gingerbread House

bigtimecow Jan 6th, 2008 03:59 AM

wasn't iron mitchell the noise guy? he was the man

me and... fuck, i can't remember his name. me and some other guy on here (used to have the website digitalhorse?) we made some noise tracks before, if i can find them i'll post them.

otherwise i'm in two bands
http://www.myspace.com/georgeorwellthemusical
http://www.myspace.com/slightlyoutrageousneanderthals

the first is a more experimental / metal band and the second is a fun metal band

woo! :love

terrva Jan 6th, 2008 08:32 AM

bigtimecow: Great stuff, i really like george orwell the musical. I always admire people who can scream like that without making their throats bleed. Slightly Outrageous Neanderthals is pretty damn good too. Try and find those noise tracks too, i'm eager at all times to hear noise.

In other news, i uploaded some stuff i made last year for yall's listenin' pleasure (if you fancy this kind of stuff):
Armies
My corroded wench
Scalpelswamp
Rust-drill

The first two i'd call industrial, the third harsh noise (and it really is harsh). The last one i can't categorize.

EDIT: I guess i should also share my tools of the trade. I've been using jeskola buzz (wikipedia entry) for roughly a year and a half now. Before that i used various trackers, like modplug tracker and similar for some time. So basically my setup is a rather crappy windows pc with a rather crappy headset plugged into it.

EDIT 2: I had to remove the last one to free up some CYBER-space.

Zomboid Jan 6th, 2008 09:04 AM

I wrote and performed every bit of the hit "holiday road" from the national lampoon's vacation movies. I also mentored Danny Elfman (we went to grade school together in what seems like aaaages ago!).

Vanhelm13 Jan 8th, 2008 12:17 AM

I'm not sure if you can call it music but..
Me and my friend started a band for the sole purpose of destroying music.
We're releasing a full length CD this summer. The insert it going to be an apology to music.
http://www.myspace.com/youfuckingsuckihateyou

As you can tell. We totally take ourselves and our "art" very seriously.

Cfr5 Jan 8th, 2008 01:07 PM

My band's stuff can be downloaded here. We put absolutely no effort into recording those. I play guitar.

Fat_Hippo Jan 19th, 2008 08:29 AM

I use a music programm (yeah, I know, I suck) and some things haven't even been all that bad, considering that I have next to no musical education. Haven't uploaded them anywhere, seeing how I'd probably be pretty embarassed, but maybe I will in the future.

ElPila666 Feb 10th, 2008 12:28 AM

I played a guitar with a crappy sound but then i started to use a program called frooty loop or FL studio to experiment some techno rythms and i found that have some funny drums pre recordered that you can modify. So I create some tunes now have to add some guitar but i am still very lazy about it. I hope to make some dubs miself since a like reggae very much. je je je cheers! have a freaking good saturday

I helped do gang vocals for all the songs on their MySpace except for the Sabbath cover.
My favorite is "Commit To Sin".

Yeah, I've played around with that too, but you can forget it for anything but Techno or House, or anything like that. All the actual "instruments" sound so messed up. The Piano hurts me, the brass does too, and I don't know what's up with the guitars. It's easy if want to smack some beats together, but that's about it.

Fathom Zero Feb 11th, 2008 10:19 PM

Can anyone lone me some beats so I don't have to steal them?

Fat_Hippo Feb 12th, 2008 05:19 PM

Well, what kind of beat are you looking for? It's easy to make somthing with FL Studio 6, so it shouldn't be a problem.

I made you a beat but I dropped it.

Fathom Zero Feb 12th, 2008 06:42 PM

Nevermind, I have the perfect one in mind.
