Sound Inflictions 3 and 4
I warned you once. I warned you twice. But with over 500 downloads so far, you failed to squash this addiction to Garageband, and the resulting afflictions on you, Dear
Reader Listener. And now, like some evil mutant zygote, the rate of growth has doubled. You now get two songs demi-musical constructs in one blast.
I mean, we’re now talkin’ a third of an album. In my head, this “album” has even taken on a dual meaning name: “Bamboo In Yer Ear.” And there’s now a download page, with recently uploaded remixes of the first two
songs demi-musical constructs. This thing has now grown beyond your ability to stop it, because you didn’t squash it on the beach when it was just one weak MP3.
Now there’s four.
So, allow me to introduce my new Frankenstein Twins (though they are definitely fraternal). First, there’s an attempt at something resembling crunchy garage rock. But as I’ve mentioned before, I don’t play anything (well, other than one four note passage), I just mix existing loops. And in the arena of rock sounds, Garageband is pretty limiting. But I gave it my best shot: “Crunch In The Garage” MP3 (5.18MB, 3:46)
And if you haven’t noticed, I tend to give these … things … fairly descriptive titles, since they’re just instrumental constructs. And that’s true of number two: “Upright Stringey Vibe” MP3 (4.9MB, 3:33)
So what’s next? Heck if I know. However, after making my “playing debut” on “Crunch in the Garage,” I found playing the notes by pressing ”; ; l i” to be not only silly, but seriously lacking in precision. So there may be a cheap USB keyboard in my future (oooh, even cheaper here).
