Filling the Void with Chaos


Biscuit Hider

Double post to keep things cleaner:

I normally wouldn't do this with my YOUNG JAGUAR project, but MrSargent has inspired me - here's a WIP track I've got going! World-inspired instrumentation, with a western song structure. It's pretty much a love letter to my other experimental project, the:pawn.project, but with all the things I've learned in the intervening 15 years since that one started. And also I got a NI Komplete update (from 4 to 12, lol) a few weeks ago, so I've been going hard on all the new synths and samples I have access to.

It's called pillows. It's a continuation of the theme I did with cushions, and will likely keep going for another couple of songs until I have an EP I can call comfortable things.


WIP status: I'm mostly happy with the arrangement, mix is pretty good to my ears (minus piano dynamics being a little iffy, might adjust), but I'm at a loss as to where to go next. Not sure if I should go full Beck and add guitars, or some sort of lead line. I generally prefer a lack of proper lead instruments in my music since I'd rather just jam over it if I want that, but I know that's not for everyone. Will likely do a little drum tweaking since that can always be better (and it's the first time I haven't used superior, so I'm still learning how all the NI drum stuff works).

This is also probably the most "subdued" mix I've done in a very long time, not all brickwalled or pumped to hell, so I'm in semi-new ground here. Level balancing is a lot harder when focusing on background/quiet instrumentation behind louder stuff, who would've thought!

Here's the track (private for now, until I've decided there's no more I can do):

Most of the tracks for the new album "Missing Teeth" were re-mastered and re-uploaded, they sound so much better now.

The two tracks I linked above are the newest, Lowered Expectations was released this past weekend.

Edit: The track list on my Soundcloud is now out of chronological order because I didn't upload them in order.

Thanks, that's exactly what I'm going for - kind of a mishmash of 90s Godspeed You style sampling and instrumentation with the drone and aggression of 2010s Swans.

Working on putting some sketches I've had for years into finished pieces. Slow-going as I'm doing it all myself. Mostly funk/jazz fusion type stuff, aiming to be very groove heavy.

Guitars and bass are still pretty much scratch, but the structure is there. I've also yet to work out any solos.

Would appreciate any thoughts on mixing and EQ.

This poo poo slaps and the production is top notch. Are you using an amp or modeling for the guitar and bass tones?

Thanks dude! The production is all in house, the other half of the band is a loving lord at home production.
Yeah it's all modelling, can't remember what we specifically used but I am not entirely happy with the bass outside of a couple of songs tone wise, working on new material which will change that though, for sure!

Really trying to start posting more of my beats, even if they aren't fully finished tracks. Here are a couple short little tracks I have been working on recently.

This first one is an all-original beat I wrote that I thought turned out pretty cool. I played / recorded keyboard and live bass on this one.

This second is a beat I made around a cool soul sample I found on Tracklib. Would really like to find a rapper to work with on this one since I feel like it is begging for a couple verses.

I actually made a track of my own for my game. It is the only track actually created by me. It is designed for use in the game so it is pretty short and has some weird rhythms in parts.

edit: oh it is I guess a somewhat hard techno thing.

Just under an hour later:

All I did was mix and master it a bit after the fact, but here it is.

Edit 6/23: I changed the beat a bit to kinda actually sound loving coherent, because I sure wasn't when it was made. I tightened up the graphics on level 3.

I just realized by listening to my previous tracks through headphones that there was a ton of noise that I did not heard through the monitor speakers. Turns out it was the speakers themselves adding the noise by being plugged to the same power source as the instruments.

I feel really dumb for only realizing this after such a long time now I'm definitely recording with headphones on. Baby steps.

I will get back to Tangerine Dream/Vangelis style music on the next one.

Edit: I changed this one up a little. If you checked it out before 7:30PM Eastern, please try it again. I felt it was missing something and I added some poo poo.
