    I think I have good cause to be pleased with this one.

    Definitely! So soon after ‘Scream Fish’ too! ‘Lucid Dream’ appeals to me especially. Love the guitar solos throught! I can easily picture the player’s facial expressions.

    Thanks heaps for letting me keep a copy 😀

    Re: ‘Music sounds better (instrumental)_Podium mix’ by Me le suono!

    Very groovy. A bit 70’s disco so perhaps vocals with that flavour?! Thanks for sharing it to the group 😀

    As compared to the original, I find it has a more timid finish (character as opposed to track’s ending). Was that intentional?

    Interesting. It’s kind of like a mixture of old school funk/soul and modern electronica.

    Heh. I doubt the reality lives up to the hype. I have this really bad habit of biting my bottom lip when I’m concentrating. I’m trying to train myself out of it. I’ve gotten halfway there, because at least I don’t stick my tongue out any more. 🙂

    It was not intentional. I think it depends on the different sounds / instruments that I have used in the two tracks. In the Podium mix the focus is on the piano melody.

    Hmm… Podium free –> plugins free… 😀 😆 …I’m joking

    @kim_otjc

    Thanks! I have visited your website yesterday: it must be a great satisfaction to make a whole album and play live!

    My next goal is to combine the two. I’d love to play my own compositions live, but my band only plays covers, because it’s so difficult to get people interested in unfamiliar music.

    I am really getting to like Podium 😀

    Hehe. I just listened to those two songs. It reminds me of the early days of trackers, back in the 80s when I bought myself an Amiga 500 — my first computer. People used to create all sorts of quirky, blippy music just out the sheer exuberance of messing with the software. 🙂

    @kim_otcj – I remember the Amiga, quite the cats meow at the time but far too pricey for a starving college student. I was using a homebrew Z-80 system at the time, with an old ADM-3A terminal that I picked up surplus. And I was perpetually broke from buying analog synths and buying parts for a fully polyphonic monster that I built (and drugs, alcohol, and women, but that is another story… 😳 ).

    But you are absolutely right about the “sheer exuberance of messing with the software.” I keep meaning to get down to some serious composing with ZynAddSubFx / Podium, but I wave my mouse around and cool music comes out! With no scotch tape or razor blades in sight! It is difficult NOT to just play around 😀

    I must admit that I am beginning to chafe under some of the limitations of ZynAddSubFx – it took me the better part of 2 weeks to build up the patches for the percussion instruments I used on “eTune,” and I am not at all happy still with some of them. But it is open source, and I almost have the code compiling in my environment, so I’ll be fixing that shortly 😯 Someone also gave me a broken and disassembled Moog Source that I am trying to bring back to life, and that will add some nice, fat analog minimoog sounds to my palette, and I dug my old pickup out of the shed and put it in a cheap 12-string guitar so I can add some guitar licks.

    Now I just need some more time to play with it all…..

    Yeah, that’s always the way of things, isn’t it.

    I bought myself a saxophone a couple of months ago — haven’t had time to look at it yet.

    My local retailer for music instruments is going out of business, and bought a whole heap of stuff cheap in their closing down sale — haven’t used any of it yet.

    Torque 3D open sourced their game engine — haven’t looked at it yet.

    Nanowrimo is on this month — so far I’ve written half of a first chapter…

    Being a Renaissance man is a tough job…

    Hello all,

    Just wanted to share two tracks of mine released as “Cryobiosis” that have appeared under 2 compilations on two netlabales: GV Sound and Cryo Chamber.

    Freezeout – http://gv-sound.bandcamp.com/track/freezeout

    Departure – http://cryochamber.bandcamp.com/track/cryobiosis-departure

    I was quite honored to be included on the second compilation (Cryo Chamber) as I got to put my name along with well established dark ambient artists.

    I’m also currently working on another album, totally different but more on that later.

    Brrr … fear! I did not sleep last night! 😆

    Joking aside, really beautiful tracks Cris. They’re ready for the soundtrack of a video game (Halo, C&C, for example …) or, why not, a movie.

    Keep it up!

    Thank you for your kind words. I can’t dream of writing music for a game like Halo haha, but I would love to write the soundtrack to a small movie/game. It’s just that I really have no idea though how to get to someone who writes movies/games and would need a soundtrack.

    Hello Cris,
    I believe Me le suono! has explored this. Send him a pm to find out what he’s using.

    Also, you can license directly through SoundCloud with the help of Getty Images.

    Licensing and collection of royalties varies in administration from country to country. In Australia it is done through APRA/AMCOS. In the US, it’s ASCAP. They’re kinda like a trade union, I think.

    Best of luck Cris, I look forward to the day when you post a link to a film trailer which credits you as soundtrack composer 😀

    ❓ 😮

    I mentioned Halo because recently I heard about the “Halo 4 Remix Contest”:

    https://halo4remix.com

    where anyone can remix a track from the soundtrack of the video game.
    Just sign up, download the stems and you’re done … or almost, because Italy is not among the countries that can participate :evil:. Maybe because in Italy Halo sold poorly.
    BTW, I don’t know if it’s still open … it can be an opportunity.

    Ah…In Italy there is the SIAE but … they are thieves licensed. :-#
