Topical Storm and The Mock Up Song of Drums On Desperation

Postby steban » Tue Dec 02, 2014 6:22 pm

All this collaborating inspired me to write this song about us and the forums.

I have a basic mix that sounds pretty clean to me with synth guitars, bass (Probity) and drums. My initial vocal track is a bit shaky and noisy, and I am in the process of redoing it.

No matter, if anybody else has anything else they would like to contribute, even if just criticism, I am all for it.

However, I have also provided an Experimental Comedy version as well, which if you have ever gotten drum loops from Drums on Demand you might appreciate. It's sort of an inside joke, I suppose. It happens to include my initial vocal line as well as the voiceover by Probity.

I personally am concerned it may sound too similar to another song, so please let me know if you recognize it.

Topical Storm by Steve Bancroft

Once we had opinions
that moved the minds of men
and we would often alternately win

you would always take your side
and so it would begin
fading into age old arguments

at times the tempers rose too high
as we'd attempt to kiss the sky
you'll never know until you try
and fill your soul with newfound sentiments

there's no center of calm in this topical storm
just a steady onslaught amplified
by gusts of gale force winds

perhaps that was enough
to be the big bad wolf
to huff and puff and blow down the house
we built together once as friends

completely down to the ground
with unheard words and songs to show for it now
like trees falling in the forest making sounds

perhaps for some it seemed too long
and patience wore too thin
if that's the way it was for them
then that's the way it had to be
there's no reason to pretend

yet still I miss the pitiful howl
and the overly ominous growl
how we oftentimes cried foul
whining way too long and loud
to the bitter end

there's no center of calm in this topical storm
just a steady onslaught amplified
by gusts of gale force winds

Once we had opinions
that moved the minds of men
and we would often alternately win

you would always take your side
and so it would begin
fading into age old arguments

how we oftentimes cried foul
whining way too long and loud
to the bitter end

So here is a new mix with a new vocal track. It is a loud mix, but I think it was needed. I'm thinking the vocals might be a tad too low.

I upped the bass and vocals. Reaper is working so well today.

I have this idea of harmony vocals similar to what I had on agent of chaos, very seriously emotionally prog. My first vocal line is rather simple and yet not totally meandering, so it feels like there's room for more voices. I'm not in a big hurry.

To me it is rapidly solidifying into a pretty song.
