On Off World

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

From the latest on Pianobook - OnOff scrapes by Martin Russ . And found sounds, and a bit of LABS from Spitfire. Sadly we lost the great Jon Hassell recently. And it's my poor homage to a master.

Very nice!  Enjoyed listening  to this on a lazy afternoon.

I'm not familiar with Jon Hassell.  Will have to check out his music.

Your pieces take me to another place.   I like the mix of exotic with the familiar, and the rhythm holding it all together.

He worked with Terry Riley on the original  "In C" in the 60s, Brian Eno, Talking Heads, Peter Gabriel, Ry Cooder, many films, invented mixing world music with electronics and samplers, and a host more. Recommend - Fourth World, Vol. 1: Possible Musics, City: Works of Fiction, Last Night the Moon Came Dropping Its Clothes in the Street (some great live performance available on YouTube).

Very glad I had headphones on! A great compilation composition . . . you may have intended it, to me the mix tilts towards the lower eq regions, some of those bassy pads are filling up the low end nicely, but I'm missing some brightness in this I think. Could be the headphones perhaps? 

Love the journey, the "world music meets the outer world" vibe . . .very groovy indeed!

cheers,

-Tom

I noticed when I placed an octave shift on the trumpet to get that Jon Hassell sound. It altered the tone of the whole thing. The high end of the trumpet went. And the lower freq seemed to get boosted more across the whole. I cut the pads to compensate. Without the shift on the trumpet it did not have the same vibe. I use both Sennheiser and AKG headphones. And it seemed balanced. But this was a fast, inspirational thing done very quickly. And it may well be that my ears were missing things by the end. Glad you like it though.

Very clever...
Nice low end.

We all paint different pictures...
Could be a little more "crispy" for me.
Steven Slate plugin "Fresh" would have brought it out Im sure.
