Sound Infliction, #2
As of right now, about 60 people have downloaded the first MP3 I made in Garageband (I told Susan I am now a rock star, so she must be my groupie), and not one person has come forward to say, “Reid, it sucks” (though it’s not too late). Based on this overwhelming encouragement (what do you mean, “apathy”?), I’m assaulting you with Sound Infliction, #2.
But I learned a few things. This one’s got better structure (it almost goes somewhere, but then runs out of gas before it gets there), a little better mix, and some cool sounding Indian tabla blended with cheesey 70’s clavinet, and some “Secret Agent” surf style guitar. I’m definitely more pleased with it than the first one. And one of these days I may even figure out a decent way to end these things.
Remember, it’s not a “song,” it’s a construct: Download “Mystical Secret Agent” MP3 (5.3MB, 3:50) Update: as of 8/23, this download links a much better mix than the original
