Thanks Gab for encouraging words! cool.gif

I'm still seeking tones for different kind of feelings at the same time as learning better skills to play, but it's long journey, like you said before to me! biggrin.gif

I haven't ever composed anything in this way or another way, just some riffs. But after my skills is going to be better, I'll think it's time to test maybe this way or other way to compose some music. cool.gif

One main reason to participate this kind of expriment is learn to increase my creativity and it's also easier to listen and empathise to others sounds about same picture, if I'll give my time to this one. This topic and subject is just a win- win possibility for me and everyone here!


Hey friend! You used a perfect combination of words: win - win. That's what happens when creativity is genuine and reciprocal, and it becomes limitless!

and just to show another example, your idea resonated in me, and this is what I got in just 5 minutes. There is an instrumental version and another one with some vocals as reference (no real lyrics)

Hello mate!

Very nice version Gab, especially if you got it like this in just 5 minutes..WOW..great! smile.gif
I happy to give you this kind of inspiration with my idea cool.gif
By the way how you made drums and bass, at least drums must be with some kind of software?

yeah! this is what you can get with a combination of creativity training and software practice. I'm used to create music all the time, and I need to make the time between my mind and the computer the shorter possible.

I record everything using Cubase, which is a Multi track software. I wrote the drums with MIDI, and assigned the sounds to SSD 3.5 which is a drum VSTi (virtual instrument). I did the same with Bass, but assigned it to Trillian which is a specific bass VSTi.

Here you can find a good tutorial:

Ok, I have to check those drum softwares later and practise. I have addictive drums, but it's going to take some time to learn to use it. smile.gif
But it's nice if, it's later possible to get faster my ideas to computer. But first I'll need better skills with guitar, so this isn't most important for me right now. But it's nice to know, that it's possible to get good sounding version very quickly at home, if you know what to do. smile.gif

Well, it's easier than you can think. You just need to dedicate 15 minutes every day and you would be writing drums in a week. Let me know if you want my help for it. Writing drums can also help you with your practice because you can create your loops and backings for it.

Ok guys! We already have 5 compositions for this pic. Is there any other GMCers who want to add his creation? If not we can share this EP with the other guys at the Practice Room board. I was thinking to post a link where everybody can download the tunes with the info regarding the composers and a link to the pic, just for fun. What do you think?

Hi guys! I'm compiling the songs for publishing our first EP. biggrin.gif

I need names for your songs. Could you post it here?

PS: Please also allow downloads at soundcloud tracks.

Ok guys! I'm compiling the files to share our first EP at the practice room sub-board but I have our second photo to work on. Remember that everybody is invited to join this experience!

"In this new series of forum threads we will dedicate some time to activate our spiritual side. So let's forget about reason for a while, and search deep within for creativity.

This might sound weird to you, but I guarantee once you have got a hang of it, that it will open up new possibilities.

The first experiment consists in visualizing an image that I will share. Using your deeper perception - you should musicalize it with a note, a chord, a noise, a melody, an unfinished idea, a song or whatever you can create. The creation (music) must be original, recorded by yourself and shared here.

Each of us has a different perception of reality and it will be interesting to see different GMC:ers create different musical ideas for the same image. We will then analyze the results."


This is the new pic:

Hey guys, I'm in! biggrin.gif

When I thought about this picture, I saw what the mother is looking at.
Soldiers are coming to take over the village, the men going out to fight.
Tried to tell a story. I guess you can call that a rough cut of some sort.

And Gabe, how about something a little bit less depressing next time? haha tongue.gif

Wou!! I love it! I like how you interpreted the picture. While I listened to your composition I had a similar feeling than the one I have every time I listen to One by Metallica. Did you have this song in mind?

I think that you have half a song there mate, I would continue it. What do you think?

PS: Ok, I will go for a happier pic next time. biggrin.gif
PS2: I received a first idea from another GMers who is still working on this one and I must say that you will be impressed!

Who else will join this one? smile.gif
