Nothing, for once. I finished a version of the record I'd been working on. I revised it. I put it away. I've no clue my worth as a musician or person anymore.
Okay...now...wait for fog machine.

FWIW I've felt that way several times over the years. I found my way, and maybe you will too.

@Jonse Yes i know the feeling too....it took me a long time to break free from the same old thing, i have put down the synths many time for months on end...

Here is the thing though and i hate the analogy i'm going to make ...music is like a well that needs time too refill it's not something that you can always pull from and expect it to be there.


The best music i ever made was made in the mind set of fuck it, i just want to play,then i'd make a mistake and BINGO that's it! let me play that again.


Anyways Jonse i really like your work it takes you on a journey akin to watching a film, maybe even a mystery it's full of strong emotion and really well crafted textures ....just saying

I think you will find it again, one day you will listen to a demo you created with a fresh ear and say hey "that's pretty good" ...

Try working with other musicians too, this has helped me quite a bit. Sometimes i send stuff i think sucks as a joke and then it comes back to me and i am blown away as in "o shit i didn't think of it that way" and that can help you find a whole new approach.

clocolan is right i think it happens to all of us, out of frustration i have even trashed complete songs ,good ones.....but fuck it i will make more and they will be even better.

I was playing with some percussion sounds today:

Also worked on a house track a while ago:

https://soundcloud.com/747music-1/anvil-stereo-untitled-house-track-j-tape/s-bx2qL



I dig the end of that perc track, pretty trippy altogether.

Not sure if im being crazy here but is it pitched down and then at the end pitched up??

I hear a bit of delay in the end that make it feels like it was pitched up with resampling.

Prefer the house track though, synths pad out of a forza game and a kick ass bass!

Had a boost of inspiration outta nowhere, this is my favorite so far and I think anything from me is gonna top it for a while.

I have no fucking clue why that beat works, it doesn't make any sense to me because I don't know my rythm theory very well, this is probably me accidentally doing compound times or stuff like that, I keep analysing all of it and I still cannot figure out why this still sounds correct. It shouldn't

Anyway, enjoy:

When I go months and months without anything really great happening I know it's generally time to work on skills instead. So I pick up an instrument. In my case I tend to play guitar and recently started learning the bass. I've been working 50 hours a week since Sept and have been having some other issues that have put a damper on creativity. I figure it's a good time to practice instead of noodling. If I'm noodling I can get something that sounds good, when I practice I tend to sound shit because I'm trying to learn something.

The beat sounds like it fits a sort of latin/world trope in percussion, where the bass drum (or a low tom) strikes on every 1 in each 4/4 measure, and a high tom or some other percussion sound changes from 4 to 3 every measure, like this:
(Bassdrum: X, 2nd perc: O)
X - - O X - O - X - - O X - O -
It has a very unique swing that stands out in a sea of other 4/4 rhythms, but it works and you used it well. I can also tell there's just a slight bit of misalignment with the hats, but it's nothing too extreme and it works as well.
Time to reinvent myself. I'll change my last name and move far away from here.

Love the sounds in your track 747music. Nice to hear something a bit darker!

This is a bit rough around the edges but I have just started it today. I've tried to make something with a bit more space in the arrangement for once. I really should learn how to embed the soundcloud player as well if anybody cares to give me a hint?!

I finished a record called 'Janus' last year but it has just been released on vinyl as well.

Its that time of the month again!!

oh, this thread only had 2 post since last month :(


Anyway, this month's upload is my favorite so far I poored my heart into it and ACTUALLY learned what a chord progression is and used it on purpose.
(Only ever probably did those by accident before)

This is a I to III in B flat aeolian, sounds nice and esoteric, take a load of this:
