Managed to fix up the widget not working for the last post and hopefully from now on in general whenever I release new tracks and the latest Wompdown setlists. Really excited for the upcoming Winter Break so that I can actually collaborate with some other artists in the area.
For now, the usual “you had to be there to hear the full awesomeness” since exporting effects in the mixing program I use is extremely glitchy and does not work properly:
After putting in a few hours of studio work to prepare for the last show, I thought I was ready to play a set in front of an audience. What I didn’t realize was that the hours of past experience I’ve accrued at this point would also pitch in. I’ve managed to develop my skills through the experience gained from each performance and am finally utilizing the virtual hardware I use to more of its potential. The fun is about to begin.
There are two types of objects in this world. Those which give a mirrored form of themselves when reflected and those which give a flipped form. That is, there are Symmetric and Asymmetric objects.
This last Wompdown was a blast, thanks for coming or trying to! Here’s the tracklist to listen to, but if you want to hear the real deal you have to be there. Do note that every single song in this set I wrote myself, so if you want a copy you can contact me personally using the “Submit” button at the top of this page. It says submit a text post, but really you will be sending a post directly to me.
So, I do know that I can make dummy accounts on soundcloud.com and host ALL of my music from my collection and shows. It is my respective decision that I only showcase a select few tracks and the latest Wednesday Wompdown. Keeping it short, I’ve extracted one of the live mashups I made on 7/13/2011 and also uploaded the pre-made set that was pumping out of the Canopy this past week.
To begin, a more detailed explanation of how a Soundcloud free account works. Basically, you get to have two hours of material at a time available online using their service. If you go over the two hour limit, the older tracks get “hidden.” They’re still on your account sans real access. That means you can’t delete the old tracks to free up new space. However, if you delete one of your current tracks you can free up the hidden tracks and in turn delete those to make more space. That’s why the latest Wednesday Wompdown set is now missing. Also, the old tracks are officially back.
I’m really giving in by doing this, but to replace the one file I’ve canned thus far I’ve decided to actually upload one of my ‘professionally produced’ sounds. Listen to it, download it, spread it. Do what you like:
I’ve decided to go ahead and release a few tracks to get this site started. To be honest, I prefer to keep most of my ‘professional’ music endeavors to myself. Thus, the general internet will have to be satisfied with what I deign to give them. The good news is that as I improve in general, the tracks I don’t spend as much time on will get better.
Also, apparently the free account for Soundcloud.com only supports 120 minutes of uploaded content. As I put more stuff up, the older tracks disappear.
An explanation of what you can hear in this latest update:
An 8bit sounding track, actually encoded in 16bits, I made last fall/winter.
A DJ set I played for the Wednesday Wompdown, minus the effects that were overlaid live.
