Just randomly found this half finished thing on my desktop. It even had (a very badly recorded) track of a thunderstorm in it so I sprinkled it up with some rain on a tent (https://mynoise.net/NoiseMachines/campingRainNoiseGenerator.php) and recorded some additional drums (and cut out the bad parts in the old drum tracks and viola.
Finishing up this year by absolutely totally cheating and building a Pure Data patch that shoots generative MIDI sequences at my Roland XV-5080. I did not have time at all to mix and work on this more, so here you have a quite "raw" version of it.
Thanks to everyone who has listened, liked and commented. I hope you have a nice year end holidays time and that next year will be even better than this one!
I "finished" an old project this week because I am trying to get used to my new monitors by mostly mixing and listening to things.
This is kind of hiphop or something I don't know. The song itself does not make a lot of sense (or maybe I just spent too much time on it and now I can't see the point).
For this week I have a live set (with all the warts and cringy mistakes left in - I did adjust the gain on 2 tracks but nothing else) that I performed yesterday.

I got lucky and had some time to polish up an old project and this time I took my time with the mix and structure to try and make a "real" song. It ended up being sort of like a melange of 2, because I am not very good at letting go and finishing stuff up early.
I think this could be a lot better, but I was basically working off an already recorded jam without access to the hardware I recorded all the sounds off of, which meant some doubling-transposing and lots of EQs.
Let's see if I hate it a few months from now.. :)
