  6. iambic5poetry is my megafave also and and lol oh yeah and
  7. thanks for listening eczem! yeah, very hit or miss for me too. mostly miss :D but now and then something happens i like. when i'm not in the mood to start something new i love loading up an old session and just changing all the instruments to totally different ones, but leaving notes and automation etc in place.. and see what happens.. that's what this one was, a mutation of an older track.. secret of mana!! cool.. it's been a long time since i played that, can't remember any of the music but i love the wild lush foliage vibe of that game
  8. got a new music laptop, it is good. first jam off it: https://soundcloud.com/eryngi777/dusktangleseafarer just messing around....some kind of ponderous atmospheric track about ancient mariners.... it's nice being able to chuck in whatever i want and the computer doesn't freeze or burn my fingertips off. but maybe it's bad and limits are good.
  9. i'm in love with Okami all over again. it's beautiful and rad on switch. Dead Cells is excellent too yeah! so instantly good.

    i like CS Lewis's space trilogy: Out of the Silent Planet / Perelandra / That Hideous Strength. especially the third. the first two are very old fashioned sort of sci-fi with spaceship trips to mars and venus, but the third takes place back on earth and has the best kind of sleepy-english-village-with-SOMETHING-WRONG atmosphere, conspiracy weirdness, cosmic horror creeping in at the edges, comedic farce, slight mushroom trip flavour, druidic ancient elemental power stuff.. of course they're full of sort of but not really, but sort of, christian stuff. my grandpa was a church dude (actually he met CS Lewis once as a kid) and the religious aspect of these reminds me of him - totally open and questioning and interested in everything. so, those are cool books.. anyway i just found out about this writer Charles Walter Stansby Williams, who was mates with Tolkien and Lewis, who wrote all these similar sort of occult thriller books in the 1930s - set in current times/real world, with weird spiritual/magic/unknown-science stuff that breaks through and turns everything into fantastical high stakes farce. i read the first few so far, they're great! one was about the holy grail turning up at a rural parish church and bad primal emotional magician guy + his cold, intelligence oriented researcher acquaintance trying to get hold of it, another about archetypal forms becoming material, another about the stone of solomon which could be divided without diminishing the original. ie, break off a chunk and now you have two stones of solomon, infinitely. they're fairly low key, and fairly obvious to someone reading nowadays.. he has a really evocative turn of phrase though.. especially when characters experience visionary, hallucinato times. diggin' em. edit: eg in the book about tarot cards there's an amazing sequence where the primal matter of creation is breaking through into mundane reality and everything dissolves into a golden fog emitted from within the atoms, through which the characters stumble around half corporeal and half not, with archetypal idea forms superimposed on their psyches and bodies, acting out a cosmic battle in an old country mansion (while at the same time sort of wobbling around bumping into the furniture because they, except for the lady who has an extremely jovial and open mindstate, can't see through the fog, and their own bodies appear to have the consistency of pudding..)

    Hearts in Atlantis (specifically, the novella called Hearts in Atlantis which is part of the book called that - this is NOT what the film is of) might be a good King tale for if you don't like King too.. i really liked that one (though, been years since i read it, maybe it's awful!). it's not even horror, or supernatural or anything like that. except it has this amazing weird doomed atmosphere..
  12. fold4,wrap5 birthday presents for lp5 my first ae album.. acroyear2, rae, f4w5 and corc are my faves and i love them forever.. i once dreamt that that silver-on-both-sides lp5 cd had a secret side B if you flipped it over..it was really good..
  13. thanks for checking it out =) yeah you're right about that bass...dunno what happened there..i listened in the car and the bass i thought was there, was not. will fix!
  14. R'lyeh makes me real happy and bouncy.. that's my fave so far... v good music <3

    fully. same. i'm up to the last one now, Return to the Whorl.. they've been amazing all the way through, some of my favourite things ever now. as well as the very evocative placeness of them, i love how he sort of, often doesn't explain things which have already been implied. not in a being-cryptic way, but a really natural feeling way. like he almost always omits things which are potentially obvious. book weird. book good.
  17. thanks noairbag! :) some different stuff from me.. getting back into tracker music made of samples.. simple little ditty... i never messed with drumloops much back when i started trackering, feel a bit of an impostor, i dont know what i'm doing. but it's good fun after years of ableton and softsynths..
  18. these rule! life jungle's my fave.. reminds me of the music from that show Monkey!.. i had hardly listened to any oldschool jungle outside of old squarepusher, if he counts, til a couple weeks ago. figured it was time to get into it.. and the last few days i've been getting back into trackers after being ableton'd up for years now.. drum loop+offsets are so fun, tho i'm not good at it yet.. there are obvs many tricks i must learn.. your beats are amazing! really inspiring stuff :)
  19. (i don't know anything much about this, just something i found somewhere sometime and liked)
  20. way into Hollow Knight. i didn't expect to like it much, and for the first hour or two was right but then...whoah. it rules. incredibly characterful.. that world feels like a place. first obviously-Souls-and-Metroid inspired game i liked..feels like totally its own thing. i am so lost somewhere down there and i love it
  21. i'm a bit late, just catching up.. gosh i adore Echolalia from the previous page.. when those bendy notes come in near the end...! *swoon*. really sweet stuff :)
  22. i agree with what goiter sanchez say about production/automation/etc, it's all a bit sort of..dry.. but man your stuff has a good feel to it the bro! really dig your composition.. take me there and funk jam 3 are my faves so far.
  23. that rules.. i love the idea of a synth with a radio in. i'm unfamiliar with legowelt.. was looking through his site just now and.. OH, he made smackos tape station! i love that thing so much but had forgotten where it came from.
