    "Demented Circus"

    Hey, cool stuff, really european,from Spain to Italy , with a quick look in eastern landscapes , then moove somewhere in the South to go back to your country ( United States) with the banjo .... yes in the beginning , it has to see with the european tradition of music for the circus.... It looks like a big work... Thanks for sharing. Olivier

    Acronym for Wrong Tone With Wrong Chord At Wrong Time!!!! The purpose is to built a start-up aimed towards musicians or songwriters who are not professionnals but love music! The idea is: music takes time .... So if music ain't your job but you produce good things .... Then you go back to your computer , your guitar or whatever ... And it takes time .... So the thing is: Create an Academy where we teach people how to ruin a track by overloading the preamp , learn the wrong mikes places,and a lot of kept secrets!!!! Then for thoose who missed this steps ,how to destroy a mix with too low a threshold ,or too high a ratio with the compressor... Teach them how to get wrong settings with eq and so on.... So the result should be: "Mmmmh cool man! Good job , but what's your actual profession?" In this situation , amator musicians should skip playing ...And here comes the heart of the thing!!!! Normally , they should pack up and get a great area of free time to : Drink, watch TV, bet on horses, wander In the street .... And a lot of useful things . For the more recalcitrant , we could teach them how to sing out of tune or how to play out of groove!!! I think there is a fair amount of business to be made with this health recognized enterprise. Sponsors should be numerous. What do you think about this great idea?

    Despite My Situation - album

    Hi hi, maybe I will!!!! Then you will become a professionnal musician and songwriter .... And you will have to get your accreditation with the Union of professionnal song writers and musicians .... And you will have to make more albums and touring dates to make your living ...... Edit: And we will be happy because we will hear you more !!! And you won't because you will have to play and write and sing with no holidays !!!! ๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Š

    Despite My Situation - album

    Sorry ,sorry . I know I am getting loud !!!!! But .... You master ,playing ,writing and producing ..... So go on ( you know the Corrs song!!!) You are close to bring us something really cool !!!! Put away all technical thoughts , You master them !!! And just offer us what you would really want to offer us !!!!!!!! sorry for the edit !!!!! But ,according to me , You should also throw away all the conventions ( After the fifth must come the one or the fourth or the minor six and so on ....) Just to say I am a fan!!!!

    Despite My Situation - album

    Hi , congratulations!!!!! It is something important to bring a project up to a kind of reality ... To be honest, I am not sure I wll buy the album , but it helps me spend a cool evening ,better than listening to the radio . Funny , it brings me back to , I don't know .... Somewhere between CSNY and some more recent productions.... But , sorry sorry, you know ,what makes me buy an album is it that it does not lead me back ,but it brings me somewhere I have never been.....(Hendrix on his time and this one I miss :Amy Winehouse...they did something never done before ,according to me , that's why music while being a business is also an art!!!) Your album is great , and again, it is cool time spent in the evening with your music... Carry on and maybe one day , the unknown will come out from your guitar or from your writing..... Anyway , again, perfect production, good playing and cool singing . Thanks for sharing. Olivier .....mmmh maybe I will buy it๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Hi, this song is written in somewhat a pure tradition of a certain kind of songwriting , but as I have no knowledge I can't tell you which one it is๐Ÿ˜Ž It certainly reminds me some of Leonard Cohen's writing ( the deep lyric writing and the kind of " ostinato" played with the guitar) I like the way you place the lyrics in term of rythm . So in short: Bravo!!!!! Cheers mate. Olivier.

    Live recording done with Cakewalk!

    Very nice tune ,very good performance by all the musicians ,nice video and nice mix.( Some tones reminded me some Pat Metheny's progressions ,and from my point of view it is a cool thing). Thanks for sharing . All the best for your music . Olivier

    Arleneโ€™s Song: Hope and Struggle

    Hey cool ! Mister guitar hero ๐Ÿ˜Ž It's true that sometimes,things are easier to say with things more subtle than words .... It seems there is some work in this track ,and I can hear you have a lot to say ,and you use your guitar to tell it.... Very nice song ..... Your lady ,surely has been impressed by thoose " power tones" you offered her here .... Listened it three times in a row .... Thanks for sharing. All the best . Olivier

    "What Days We Had" - new song

    Hey cool video ,and nice song... I am impressed ..... Got to go back to it with a good sound system because I just watched it on an IPad... The only little thing I would say is that the lead guitar seems a little bit too upfront but again ,got to go back to it. cheers. Olivier

    Hi, sorry,not much time to muse around on this forum,took time to listen to some titles and will have to leave comments... By the way this song was recorded in one take( really one,the first shot and no look back) For me this song is ... Beautiful ,Dolores O'Riordan wrote it for the birth of her daughter,and for me,it was ok to make it for my grandson. Thanks for listening. Olivier.

    Hi mate, sounds like a deep injury !!!! So deep that you even felt the need to filter the vocal part with a kind of high and low pass!!! I would be glad if you could type the words ,though your intonation is clear ,Iam afraid to miss some details,because I am not english native.... cool sound .. Hey! Now waiting for a kind of catchy upbeat joyfull song๐Ÿ˜Ž. cheers. Olivier

    Hi Lynn, yes , great songwriter ,I miss her in some ways though I never met her,and great song....I cannot say why ,but this song mooves something deep in me.... thanks for the tip of raising the threshold, I will do it, I say I miss time and it is true ,have a window tonight.... thanks again. Cheers. Olivier

    It's Love-new song (remixed on St. Patrick's day)

    Hi Lynn, good job, if I dare .... The only thing is that I hear more guitars than ...love ..sorry sorry , you know how I process and I am found of light arrangements ... They allow me to hear more of the " heart of the thing ( song)" It is also that as a a non native english person It demands me some kind of effort to " enter " your song. Anyway good job and we need good music and cool people while Notre-Dame is burning . carry on .... It is a need ... cheers. Olivier

    Hi Freddy thanks a lot. I am discovering that voice is really related to what we are and maybe this way to sing is due to a belief that I am not able to go in the high tones,but I am ok with It.... thank you. Olivier

    Hi Bjorn, thank you. well for the mix ,It was not so touchy,one guitar and one voice, though on this one ,I dared to make It all "hardware" based. For the fade out,as It was a single take,It is more to hide errors at the end of the song than an artistic dรฉcision:-) thanks cheers. Olivier

    Hello Tom, thanks for your comments. I will be careful with the word "desert " . well singing in english demands some attention with all thoose "s" wich if you miss them ruin the meaning and thoose"th"unprononceable for me but ...I let it happen in some ways. for the loudness,I must be years late,and try to be a winner in the loudness war:-) ..No I don't know why It sounds louder ,but I am afraid that if I lower the ceiling of the limiter ,the soundcloud convertion algorythm makes it even louder. Thanks again. Cheers . olivier
