Listening back I had some really fueled ideas in a couple of tracks.. I wish I had that same energy still.

 This second one was made only using the po-12, I should have avoided the realm of hardware I realize now.. is fun but for many (myself included) it becomes more about the gear than the music..

A fairly recent one, actually. I always spend ages fucking around adding loads of layers and twiddly bits and stuff to my tracks, and then I knock out something incredibly simple and it's about 200 times better.

My most popular is this four-track acoustic guitar piece, for some reason. Apparently people actually Googled the tab for it enough for "Clouds in the shape of clouds tab" to pop up as a suggested search a few years ago. 5k Soundcloud plays, nearly 9k on YouTube. It's nice, but I've definitely done better.

I think I like this one most of my own. Didn't have a drum-machine at the time which made me make much more ambient and sample based stuff.

These are about 20 years old. They're potato quality (I think the sources are 128 kbit CBR MP3s), and the original WAVs were lost in a HD crash, but I still like them.

Digging a lot of the tracks here. It would be nice to have some kind of auto follow for all WATMM members on soundcloud so you don't have to go digging.

I can't speak for you, but for me, when I have a ton of energy tracks sound a lot better than they actually are. So I end up working on lots of tracks that I think are good in the moment only to later realize they are passable or just plain bad.

So I try to work on music with a level head, and when I am bouncing off the walls on occasion I know it's probably a waste of time to work on composition tracks.

That said it's never a waste of time to work on sound design and making lots of cool sounds that can be used in tracks. I usually translate that energy into putting 30 FX on top of each other, lol

While I generally try to refrain from whiffing one's own farts 'Clouds openly, these two are arguably my best ones I've uploaded in the past decade

always like revisiting this one. the drums and lazy progression i guess. 

 

 

I love this, nice chill vibe and satisfying sound design (I like the wet farts in the background). I understand why you keep revisiting it. I honestly like your music better than most of the stuff of the featured artists

I think I've probably made at least a hundred tracks as Zephyr Nova.  Not sure about my favourite, but this one's probably my pre-2008 magnum opus (from the days when I was making a track or two every week):

Whoever curated this youtube page did a fine job.  I'd prob nix that space space decimal tune, but I can stand behind the rest.

recently found a cdr with some old stuff i made back in the days (like ~15 years ago) and uploaded some of it to soundcloud for nostalgic reasons - these are really lofi, basically just unedited recordings of me jamming with an early version of audiomulch and a toy keyboard fed in through the mic input. you can hear the sound of my cpu freezing at about 02:00 in the first one. second one is just no input feedback in a chaotic setup (the actual "track" appears briefly at 04:50) - about the 3rd one i have no idea , but the ending part from 06:00 onward is quite cool.

guess it's not what you would call music, but i still kinda like them :unsure:
