A literary musical extravaganza!!

I liked the introduction of the heavy metal guitars and how on earth did you manage to record Anchor in the shower!!:O)

Let me tell you one thing. It’s pretty hard to hide a compressor in that shower…;-)

dood, this is a MIX! really outstanding blend of samples to create a dark & engaging tale.
permalink   Subliminal Sun, Mar 1, 2009 @ 11:28 AM
Thanks! The original idea was in a way even darker. But when I noticed that the sample that I wanted to use had disappeared, I thought that it was probably deemed inappropiate. I remembered having Scomber’s intro still lying around in my Things To Do playlist and things went their own way from there.

Gee thanks Sub for using my Scene 2 voiceover. Nice elements and FX with a cool rolling beat.
The CCM musical project is not canned, just sleeping temporarily while a playwright friend that knows much more about musical theater than I writes the script.
I agree with RT though, Anchor in the shower reminds me of that famous scene in Psycho except I suspect he doesn’t look too much like Janet Leigh.
Love your Anthony Perkins avatar makeover ;-)

Well, I thought let me photoshop myself into a better looking bloke. And in the meantime you have answered my question about the status of the CCM musical before I could actually ask it.

I think the actual shower scene was from the film “A Lonely Sailor” - X rated of course…

I love your sense of style and drama. This is a great piece of audio-storytelling and really does conjure up some visual images as well.
super work, my friend.

Thanks, Anchor. And now further with Days And Nights.

Hey I usedyour tune remix here

permalink   Subliminal Tue, Mar 3, 2009 @ 9:09 AM
That was pretty cool! Especially considering the subject matter of the song. Thanks again!

Sorry I’m so late to listen/review … I was afraid to ;-). Now I am looking over in sadness at my English degree (or at least that’s what I think it is, damn thing’s written in Latin), poor old poets and writers.

Nice bit of story telling here and thanks for picking my stuff up.
permalink   Subliminal Wed, Mar 4, 2009 @ 10:20 AM
Thank you! And keep the stuff coming. Why not a full remix? ;-)

I am a very fussy person. For me to do a full remix means a lot of work, way more, I suspect, than a lot of people around here have to do to get something usable. I’m working on a winter themed thing now which may have to be cut short because my snow is melting and it will be 60 degrees here this weekend. Once the mood is gone, the mood is gone :-).

60 degrees sounds awfully hot, but it’s probably fahrenheit. ;-) Ayway, join the club. Most of the time it takes me a month before I have something half-decent, and sometimes even longer. Not that I am working 24/7 on one song, but still…very frustrating.

Real nice use of that sample of mine, with the slow chords, they work together a treat. Enjoyed this one Sub, has some great ideas and air of intensity.

The intro of the rock guitars… ace

Nice beard by the way…
permalink   Subliminal Sat, Mar 7, 2009 @ 8:46 AM
Thanks (also for the compliment on the beard…). I recently discovered that you have uploaded a new batch of tasty drum loops. I guess that one or two will end up in one of my tunes.

what a great ride! However wouldn’t it be dangerous to play a stack of Marshall amps near the shower? :-)
permalink   Subliminal Tue, Mar 17, 2009 @ 8:38 AM
That’s why I let someone else play the guitar. ;-) Thanks!
permalink   Sun, Mar 22, 2009 @ 7:11 PM
this is really well done—-insanely good idea.

Thank you!

Love the heavy distortion guitars! Excellent build-up and arrangement
permalink   Subliminal Fri, May 1, 2009 @ 9:43 PM
Thank you very much. It’s actually mainly Virtual Guitarist 2 and a little bit from me.
permalink   Ivan Chew Sun, May 3, 2009 @ 5:54 AM
Virtual Guitarist is new to me. Googled for it and learned more about it, so thanks for that info! Anyway, it doesn’t take away my original statement that the distortion guitar part rocks! Nicely done by you in any case.
