TDRS artists, music and related topics / Re: Myopia

Myopia was the first track I did for what would become Thanatopsis. I  think I started with a drum loop and then the Moog. The bass is the Moog, one of the most devastating bass generators ever created. When I turn it up on my Augsbergers you can see shirt collars waving in it\'s breeze. Buckethead did a pass then Ramy came in and did the drums, I got rid of the loop after that. The drum sound is a Grestch kit, a very fat kit to start with and mic\'ed through Neve 1073 pre-amps and some LA2A compressors. I like the sound dry and tight while still trying to keep it fat. The guitar, at least on this track was cut direct to tape and Bucket used a variety of stomp boxes, all the effects were generated by him, I may have added some delay and reverb here and there. I wish I could be more specific about his FX boxes but I just don\'t remember which ones. The parts that are doubled is just if he play a riff more than once I would cut and paste the second go round under the first one and cut and paste those together a few times. I\'m not sure what the drum panning is your referring to, I pan drums to the audience perspective, hat on the right, toms hi, right to low, left. If you are hearing a weird panning effect it might be a drum edit where I have pulled the overhead tracks forward or backward in time relative to the other mics edit point, this makes for an interesting effect and for 4 or 8 beats the edit point overlaps. I added the strings last to give the track some build to the end. This track was done in the same way I did Pin Bones and Poultry on SWOTSH, but in that case the drum loop stayed . Final Reparation is my favorite track from Thanatopsis. I really enjoyed working Mozart into the track with the moog and my weird piano sound. I knew I was putting together a track unlike any I had heard Buckethead play on but he was enthusiastic about it when I played him the basic track and I was thrilled with what he played adapting perfectly to the track and pulling off some insane and beautiful licks with Wolfgang.

Since I have material on it I may have a better chance, I\'ll give it a try.

It\'s the same company that put out the CCOH record. I will ask but even though they usually nod yes, I never seem to get stock. The good thing though is it will have pretty good distribution and you can always get it from Amazon or the like.

My Dad\'s book production got stalled when we got the price for printing all color pages. We are retooling and I\'m looking to do it in black and white with a color cover. I\'ll get it out yet.

No guitar players do. String players is another story.

Yes, your right, gut strings are still used widely. I\'m not sure if thats what you were referring to or if your beating a cat in rhythm from your response.

It\'s not a euphemism, it\'s strings made from dried twisted animal intestines.
Nice huh. Well it used to be, now there made of nylon. When a acoustic guitar is strung up with them it gives the guitar a mellow tone. For tens of thousands of years musical instruments were made from wood and animal parts. Things have changed, a little.

Thanks Maxboi, Yea I kinda do want to make it a surprise, will be for both of us actually.

No Chris, you not, six degrees of separation is totally fair game, plus I love Classical Gas. Remember the Video that went with it?
