The new (third!) A Whale's Lantern #MusicCollab album is out!!
6 tracks by 12 of your favorite Mastodon musicians, who were put together in pairs at random. The results are as diverse as you would expect them to be 🎼
If you are in #Pasadena and want to go to a #choral concert, one of my pieces will be sung at this one:
8pm PST Sat, December 15, 2018
St Philip the Apostle Church
151 South Hill Avenue
Pasadena, CA 91106
Today's performance postponed due to illness of one of the performers.
Need to send out a public mailout about it.
But I keep thinking how to prepare my tomorrow's live concert/performance.
For now I am thinking to combine a prepared collage in #Ardour that is jack-synced with, and feeding audio to, #Renoise where I have different live effects (controlled by... ?) and a #SuperCollider interface on a touchscreen using some granulators and maybe other live effects and recorders.
is audio of a moaning person enjoying probably sexual pleasure #NotSafeForWork?
i mean, there are clear rules about images in the workplace. but is playing audio that to some degree applies to sexual pleasure also banned on a workplace?
Another fun studio thing: there's a pile of weird old synths in the storage room available for use. I asked for the strangest thing they had and got a Yamaha CS-20. I only used it for an eight bar solo but wow those are some wild bars. #mastomusic
"Learning Rush" by @estebanm and @RuminantShoppingCart is noisy, intricate, fast, and varied. If you download the album, you'll even get an alternate version, "Learning Rush Pop"! Listen here: https://awhaleslantern.bandcamp.com/track/learning-rush
so, ive been struggling to learn how to figure out a song's chords by ear
today i learned "Fuck You" by CeeLo Green and it was reallllly fun and satisfying
i recommend this song because it
- has a loud bass
- no key changes
- p simple chords
- a lot of repetition
- a really funky bridge to figure out
- its rllly good
as i find other songs that are good beginner songs to learn ill post about them under the tag #TranscribeThis and you're welcome to join me
#MastoMusic OK! The studio is once again fully functional. Took a day longer than anticipated, but I'll be able to start making that album starting tomorrow.
Only 29 days left to keep my promise for a new album in 2018!
Your Light Shines is defenitely my favourite in Reflections, @masu
