Mars

Recommended Posts

  I took a little different approach on this one and it's still in it's beginning stages. A few loops from Sonar 7 , Roland synth from 8.5 for 808 stuff ,  bounced and finished in CbB.  TTS , Tyrell synth and  dirty guitars (unusual for me)  I've been toying with vocals  , but not there yet , looking for a deep Bowie feel.  It's a little short but this is the main body. Looking for crits and suggestions before I take it further.  Thank You ..   mark   https://soundcloud.com/user-810058643/mars

Yeah , David , I thought the lyrics would be easier than it's been. I'm glad you confirmed it could go with a Bowie feel. I was wondering if it was just me. Thanks Jack. I spent a good bit of time on the 808 kick this morning.  It wasn't lining up well enough. Amazing how it got louder when it got  lined up perfectly. I'll repost later .. Thanks    mark

Open up your mind and use your imagination.  The Bowie thing you're looking for will most definitely materialize.  I can hear him in my head on this too.

 Thanks to all of you for the Great comments!  I've been deleting vocal tracks for a week now just trying to get the right feel and to get it to sit in the mix. I finally made some progress this morning. Hopefully I won't have to start deleting this afternoon. I can't sing like Bowie but I think I can get close to his  feel.   Later ..   mark

I like how you put the loops and 808 stuff together. Really nice groove just waiting for your upcoming vocals.
Speaking of Bowie, I keep thinking of Major Tom floating around Mars.

 Thanks Bjorn , I really like 808's in the right context. The loops were "smart" and changed key without me resetting the default groove pitch. By time I got to the guitar tracks I didn't even know what key I was in , but I liked the way it sounded.  Tuned my guitar up a half step to be comfortable with it. My hat's off to all the synth players. I'll be back asap , no deleting this afternoon. I'm 4 bars in !    Later ..  mark

Groovin' without a doubt!
Love that pause at the 1:20 ish mark.

Your "palette" is certainly broad.
No way I could cover that kind of ground (talking about your body of work) 'mazing.

Can't wait for the finished product...

Amazing how you layered the parts, and each part is musically interesting to listen to.  My ear moves from the bass to the lead, to the wide pads, to the percussion...   Nothing to improve to my ears!

I liked the synths on the intro - that was cool. This definitely has an 80s vibe, which makes sense since you mentioned you were going for a Bowie type of feel.

That was a fun listen - nicely done.
