Default Music Recorded in Linux

This is a new song I wrote called "Emulsion"

It's a reference to old school photography and to our inner being which sort of has a camera recording all the time. It's also sort of paralleling the way an image fades in on photographic paper in the darkroom, and how as we progress through life our perspective also comes more into view out of a haze.

I'm playing all the instruments and singing all the vocals. All tracked and mixed in Linux.

I like it! I used to do photography back in the last century. It is a fascinating process, and as you show here, leads to some interesting metaphors. Here's something esoteric to think about. C.S. Peirce says there are three kinds of signs:

--A Symbol represents something by social agreement, but does not resemble what it represents. The American flag is an example.
--An Icon resembles what it represents. A painting or a statue is an example.
--An Index has a physical connection to what it represents. Smoke indicating fire is an example. An American flag blowing in the wind is actually both a symbol of a country and an index of the wind.

Now one would think that a photograph would be an "icon" like a painting. But it is actually an index because the silver iodide reacts chemically to the light that is reflected off of the object. It is a physical process.

I said it was esoteric! But I think these concepts are related to the way you are using the metaphor of silver iodide.

Great song. You are very productive. The song Snowflake gets me back to mid seventies and a schoolmate played Samba Pa Ti by Santana every single morning around seven o'clock for two years He open his room door and woke everyone up full blast on his stereo Same vibes in the beginning before you start sing...love that guitarsound (thumbs up).

Thanks Stringer. I took photography back in school and liked playing around with FX like turning on the white light briefly to solarize an image.

Interesting take on symbols and indexes. I enjoy pondering things like that.

I'm blown away with how well REAPER is working in Linux.

Thanks Tobbe. The guitar solos on Snowflake are a friend of mine who plays on several of my songs. Larry (Polymod) Benigno is a monster keyboard player, which is his first instrument, but he's pretty hot on guitar too as you noticed!

This is Poly shredding on his guitar sounding keyboard setup.

I was fascinated by photography since I was a pup. Then music then film. Self taught all the way. Love your song great stuff in there my fav of yours to date. You let loose in the song on the vocals and guitar... I am EMO fan. From subtle sunshine pop of Buckinghams kind of a drag to Spiral Starecase more today than yesterday Jimmy eat World the middle to Panic! at the Disco high hopes. Nice effort... nice fit. Good rock too. Never stop... I enjoy when people take a risk and commit - that's in yours GJ

Damn you Glenbo, you done it again!

I still find "Overhead Projector" to be my favourite, for some reason it takes me back to my younger years

Great song mate.

Thanks S_Wave. I never did film but had an Amiga with a couple of broadcast quality gadgets (back then anyway) and did video stuff in the 80s. For me it was music first then photography, video, and computers.

I saw a band playing in a pavilion at the lake when I was 8 years old and knew at that moment that I wanted to play drums. I talked my parents into getting me my first kit that year. Every one of the bands you mention were songs I always liked.

Great song mate.

Thanks Mcgiver! Interesting that Projector takes you back, because I really had to search the net to find an image of an old overhead projector like the ones they had in school when I was about 12 or so. I was thinking of ones like in that pic when I titled the song and was initially forming the ideas around it.

Funnily enough is not the lyrics but the music, there's a lot of sounds there that take me back to early eighties. It's funny I tell you.

I like most of your music as each song seems to take elements from bands I love, from Santana to Asia or from Steely Dan to even Bruford. And even your voice in some songs have that Ozzy kind tone it's crazy in a great kind of way

All the bands you named are the music I grew up on. Bill Bruford is one of my favorite drummers (along with Vinnie Colaiuta and Billy Cobham) and has been a huge influence on me musically.

I mostly use Earthy staple instruments in my projects. Real bass, real acoustic drums, real guitars, with a few sampled or modeled instruments that mimic the real thing like the modeled Hammond organ or the sampled Kontakt strings I used in this last song.

It is great to see someone like you who makes music and publishes music for the love of it without expecting to be the next big thing. That's a true labour of love and should be commended.

Thanks man, just knowing other people get a smile, or get inspired from hearing my music is enough for me.

The line "Winning the race is nothing I need now" in the song Overhead Projector was in reference to how my perspective has changed over the years from thinking I wanted to be noticed, get a record deal, Etc., to where I am now which is totally satisfied to crank out a tune every once and a while and share it for free with anybody who cares to take a listen.
