Being stuck in a 1981 time warp I don’t really ‘do’ many new groups. My mate pointed me in the direction of Snarky Puppy. They can sure play. Not sure they are for me but very impressive.
Ah that’s not good man, you should never stop discovering new music! Sooooo much good stuff out there to be discovered. That’s why I listen to BBC Radio 6. Always finding new amazing music on there
I do love Snarky Puppy, so very talented and very catchy and interesting tunes too, which is a rare thing to find.
I like a bit of Madness and Elvis Costello to
Some of my all-time favourite bands/artists are:
Radiohead, The Cribs, The Cure, The Strokes, Arcade Fire, Bloc Party, Marilyn Manson, Bob Dylan, The Libertines, Lamb of God, Deftones, Foals, Muse…
Bands/artists I’m really getting into lately:
Queens of the Stone Age, Snarky Puppy (check out ‘We Like it Here’, it’s one of the most amazing albums you’ll ever hear, and all recorded live in front of an audience), Hot Chip, Spazzkid, The Middle East, Gaz Coombes & Supergrass…
I have. When playing golf, I often hit a hole-in-one.
My favourite has to be the Edward Scissorhands score by Danny Elfman. So so beautiful, emotive, magical and haunting all at the same time. The film and music are perfect.
Some of my other favourites are Up by Michael Giacchino, Mouse Hunt by Alan Silvestri, Shawshank Redemption by Thomas Newman, Inception by Hans Zimmer, 28 Days Later by John Murphy and The Imitation Game by Alexandre Desplat
Ooops I forgot to write words about all the above, but really they speak for themselves
Oh yeah, as you mentioned already, Hans’s work on Interstellar was stellar!! Loved the film too, the music was so absolutely perfect, as if the film and music were one.
Congratulations ChocolateFix! I wish you al the best for your second year here in the jungle
Congrats Pavel, and that’s a beautiful name
tacoMusic saidThanks tako :)) not quantising everything is the key to achieve more humanised feeing to the whole process at least for my opinion. i guess there would alot of people that wont agree with that..
Nice! Interesting to see your workflow – I use Logic as well, so interesting to see how you move around it so quickly. Nice to see you playing in parts and not quantising the hell out of everything as well gives a nicer feel to the music doesn’t it?
I totally agree with you. I try to paly as good as I can and if something is off I try these two non invasive methods:
first I move manually the offending parts in the piano rollIf is not enough, as a last resorts, I use quantize but, I also open the advanced parameters in the inspector region view (the ‘more’ arrow) and set Q-Strenght to something inbetween 60 and 90% depending on the kind of instrument and my performance quality
I agree. Not quantising, or quantising and then adjusting the strength or throwing things out of sync slightly is absolutely the key to having music that sounds musical and slightly “human.” The best way I find, as I’m not a good piano player, is to slow the tempo down and play stuff in. If everything is quantised, the music gets so fatiguing.
You make it look so easy! You’ve clearly really honed your craft. Very nicely done and thanks for sharing
