In which we discuss creep, unpaid contractors, and cries for help
Honestly. I don't know how you do it. What you create harmonically always suits the art, but always stands on its own — a true feat. This one is dusty and wonderful.
"Loved how old and crappy it sounded..." I did too! And see myself so painfully recognizably (as I’m sure many of us here assembled must) in Whistler’s impulsive behavior. Also, if you're ever in Spokane, check out the Peacock Lounge in the historic Davenport Hotel.
“two dogs fighting in somebody's basement rec-room in 1973”
Love the peacocks! And their cry in the nighttime can be disconcerting at the least! The “two dogs” thing is something of a metaphor for the 70s though - at least as I remember them. Still chuckling...
Very cool again. I have seen this in person at the Smithsonian Freer Gallery (don't call it sackler!) Really like the sample loops and beats. The cello is midi, right? I also like the video!
Mission-creep, have not heard that before, mainly because all we were faced with was feature-creep during my time at "that" company. Feature-creep, mission-creep... same thing, I guess! :) I like the muffled, aged sound.
Love the Whistler tie in to your track! Love that he just decided to decorate someone else’s dining room. And your track sounds like two peacocks (Whistler and Leyland) wrestling angularly up and down a wall!
The beat was not at all what I expected. It made me think of the painting as a high class, different kind of cock fight in an overwrought drawing room rather than a smoky, dirty basement!
I loved the beat you chose. This feels like something that should be playing in a movie scene of a dinner party in the Peacock Room. Your reduction is stunning. Those colors are perfect.
Groovy! I love the Art.
The beat's got a "Yea, I'm gonna do what I want" kind of attitude. Very fitting! Love it.
Feature creep! I like that!
