Re: Nur Ein XIII Round Two "3:20"

Nick Soma crickets for ambience – seriously? Well, OK cos I quite like Echo & the Bunnymen though they’re mediocre, as well. Hahaha. One of these days, I'm going to cut you into little pieces. :roll: (sorry Caravan for the Pink Floyd reference) No but seriously, those crickets make up, like, one fi...

Re: Nur Ein XIII Round Three "We Should"

I see they mostly did that in live performances. You could say they suck live. :mrgreen: Any of their avid fans would kill me for this, but I actually prefer their studio work by far. They can even be kind of accessible if they don't let themselves get carried away with their jams. Speaking of jams,...

Re: Nur Ein XIII Round Three "We Should"

I plan on using scissors, clip machine, etc. Do these count as household items? Kitchen utensils or vacuum cleaners pretty clearly do, right? Pink Floyd once had the idea of doing an album entirely from the sound of household objects. Ultimately they scrapped the project, but there are a few demos a...

Re: Nur Ein XIII Round Two "3:20"

Nick, This is an homage to Echoes by Pink Floyd. Its done very well, I enjoyed it immensely! You are correct. Still, thanks to Mike for the Metallica / Soundgarden comparison; it's not what I aimed for, but I like those bands, too. :) In fact it's an homage to PF in general, especially Echoes, Brea...

Re: Nur Ein XIII Round Two "3:20"

You guys were really creative with your lyrics this round. Can't wait until I get to hear the songs! I like the Biblical references especially. Ecclesiastes is my favorite book in the Old Testament (from what I remember), because it's more philosophical and less sanguinary than the others. :) BTW, o...

Re: Nur Ein XIII Round Two "3:20"

Just finished my song. It's about a guy and girl who took a trip of whatever drug to then wake up at 3:20 AM in the middle of nowhere, wondering how they wound up there. Oh, and it's more than twice as long as 3 minutes and 20 seconds. That's partly because it's very slow as well, though, about 66 B...

Re: Early signs your house is falling apart (Crack In The Wall prefight)

Cool, another ambience challenge! I have not yet written lyrics to my Nur Ein song, but I won't be lazy, so I'll write a separate song for this fight. Also, I kind of like the challenge. A lot, in fact. I probably wouldn't even mind if the Nur Ein challenge was "Ambience" each week.

Re: Circle of Titles VII

Hi everyone! CoT VII has become kind of a mess not unlike VI, which is mostly my fault. I'm terribly sorry for having suddenly disappeared from SF altogether last year, including the Circle of Titles. I wasn't too well overall, but I'm feeling better now and recording songs and stuff. I have sent ja...

Arby - It's possible to get a great recording with 1 stereo mic into a recorder. Cowboy Junkies did it with "The Trinity Session". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Trinity_Session They had a great room with great acoustics. They had a $9000 Calrec Ambisonic mic into RDAT.

Re: Nur Ein XIII Round Zero "Trial By Fire"

Some more reviews! This was a cool title and challenge, and most of your songs were adequately good. Very strong competition this year. BMac: I like the chord progression, melody, and vocal delivery, but it gets a bit boring as the song goes on. Ir would definitely benefit from some variation in you...

Re: Nur Ein XIII Round Zero "Trial By Fire"

Right. The production is doable (not going to say I'm good at it) but ONLY if you have recorded your tracks separately. Our biggest issue is we don't have the ability to record the tracks separately, so we went with a "live" recording in the rehearsal studio. Not under any delusion that it produced...

Re: Nur Ein XIII Round Zero "Trial By Fire"

Nick Soma the way you mispronounce ‘rhetoric’ threw me off. Wow, I had to look that up. Guess you refer to the accent on the wrong syllable, is that correct? Well, as you know (or don't?), English is not my mother tongue. The word is "rhe-TO-risch" in German, "re-TO-rico" in Italian (as well as Spa...

Listening now. Pepper Jane's is lovely. Merisan strong as usual. I'm always amazed by how clear and loud (well-mixed) some of the recordings are. HOW do you get them to sound so good?!?!? Mine sound like they were recorded in a basement under a sackcloth by comparison. :oops: Hi, Nick Soma here. I'...

I listened to all the songs yesterday, and I'll have another listen later this day and write reviews. Lots of good songs, my favorite being Merisan's.
I would also like to mention that the Boffo Yux one is the best I've ever heard from you. :)
