I'm about halfway done with the first album for one of my new bands, A Darker Shade of Noise
https://soundcloud.com/user-9849735...rks-in-progress

It's dark electronic music that blends influences from 80's synthpop to R&B to video game & film soundtracks into a cohesive whole..
The tracks up at the moment are all the instrumental compositions for each track, without vocals recorded yet, and I feel it still plays well even as an entirely instrumental album.

Oswaldo Von Schnoobenstein has followed you. I really like what you're doing!

Please sign and initial the attached paperwork for your reciprocal follow and I'll be on my way, thank you for your patronage.

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.

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 don't really "do" dancey/EDM poo poo, but my wife really wanted me do a dance album. So I am working on one.

https://soundcloud.com/tom-pellegri...pacific-highway

This is the newest I completed this morning. That makes track 5.

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.

HA, well, as I said, I really don't "do" dancey/EDM poo poo. If my wife wants a dance album, she's getting one from Oswaldo Von Schnoobenstein.

Oh you'll be able to dance to it, but it's not going to be poo poo requested in a club to get the sexing started.

Guys, I'm worried. I'm slipping. Slipping back in to the music I actually really love to make. I completed another one last night for the dance album, for my wife.

It's, I don't know. Not what it really should be for a dance album, but compelling enough to be on the album. I can hear myself slowly slipping away from the dance stuff.

JUST. ONE. MORE track and the album is complete. I need to hold it together and knock one out of the park for the last track of the album.

In preparation for releasing a full project of beats, I needed to submit at least one track through Distrokid so they could create an artist profile for me on streaming services. That allows me to then use Spotify for Artists and submit my stuff to playlists. I was planning on releasing this beat I made, but am having some second thoughts because this is what I do (second guess everything). I am trying to balance putting out a quality release with spending too much time on this one and not just moving on. This is one of the first beats I made where the music is all original (no samples). I played and recorded the piano, keys, and electric bass on this myself and I think my concern is that it is apparent that I am at best an amateur player of all three.

Edit: Would like people's thoughts on asking for feedback in this thread. I personally don't mind but want to hear what other people think and if that belongs in ML somewhere.


Fuckin' DO IT! Don't think, Do! It's good.

It's a great feeling hearing everything you create yourself personally. You did good here. Be proud of it and get it out there.

MrSargent posted:

I went and checked out a bunch of your recent stuff and I am really impressed. You have a great ear for melodies and harmonies and the mixes sound really full, but with a nice range of dynamics.

The trouble I am having on mixing is getting my kick drum to knock without it just redlining all over the place. When I look at my waveforms, the kick is usually peaking a few dB higher than anything else, but that seems to be the only way I can get it to hit even close to as hard as my reference tracks.

First, you flatter me. Thank you very much. I sincerely appreciate anyone that compliments me and I am humbled by it.

Second, I swear by the iZotope suite of mixing/mastering products. I have the Ozone 8 Advanced with Neutron 3 Advanced. I cannot say enough good things about this software. It's made mixing and mastering easy with the assistants, and go from there with the sound you're looking for. Granted, it's not cheap, but the results, to ME have paid for itself many times over.

Edit: About the self doubt. Don't. You do YOU, that's what makes it special. I try to just do my own thing and if people like it, they like it. If they don't, well, OK it's not their style. Being unique is what makes you special. Being you is all about releasing your thoughts and your sounds. People either like it or not. You will be surprised at the responses you get.

I have some tracks I've done that I was thinking it's an OK song, but not my best work, and then I'm surprised when I get an email telling me it's their favorite song! The ones I think are great, don't get the response I was expecting. I've learned to just do ME and not worry about how people hear or perceive it. I love all my songs, but not everyone loves them. That's OK.

Don't be afraid to release something you are unsure or self doubting. You never know how people will hear it and what clicks for them. Everyone is different. My wife isn't a fan of what I do, and I had to do a dance album for her, which is way out of my wheelhouse, but I pulled it off somehow and is my top selling album to date! Go figure.

The point is, just do what you love, put it out there and let the masses digest it however they want. You know you did your best and leave it at that.

A good example of something I did which has gotten a response I was not expecting is: https://soundcloud.com/tom-pellegri...mes-with-orange

I love it but I never thought in my wildest dreams it would get the plays it has. It has one of my highest play counts on Soundcloud with almost 16k plays so far.

And that dance album I made? https://soundcloud.com/tom-pellegri...1417/time-to-go

This track has the highest plays on soundcloud ever out of all my songs. Almost 52K plays. I don't even DO dance music. I had to really dig deep to do this album. I still don't think any of them sound like a "real" dance track, but maybe that's the allure.

Wow, that's a hell of a loving edit!
