Painkillers the musical!

Post by monolith » Fri Apr 11, 2008 12:03 pm

I hurt my back, and have spent most of the last 2 weeks in bed, loaded on prescription drugs... i recorded a song last sunday, aptly titled 'painkillers'.
I recorded it into the little mic on the screen of my ibook, but i think it went okay.
www.myspace.com/soreneck (it's the 2nd track on the list)

some trivia: the picture that comes up when the song plays is what an x-ray of my spine would look like. I use to be somewhat of a hunchback so they put metal rods in to make it straight. trippy.

i hope you enjoy it :)

Like this, background noises sound like something out of 60's sci-fi !

just listening now, out of interest when you say you recorded with the mic on your ibook do you mean you played synths etc through amps/speakers and then recorded that into the laptop? It sounds really nice, has a nice natural airy feel to it, gives it a feeling of space (and I don't mean outter space, more like the musical exists in a physical space or something.) Gets a really nice distant sounds towards the end.

Really good atmosphere and ambient s**t.

Yeah, everything went through my girlfriend's cheap 15w ashton bass amp, into that tiny little dot microphone next to the screen.
I didnt do any eq'ing or anything, just added a little reverb.
:oops:
It's strange, i bought an audio interface, thinking that going straight in to the computer would make everything sound better, and it does for drum machines, but everything else sounds really cold and lacking dynamics. i guess this is where learning to eq stuff comes in, yes?

Thanks for listening! :)

I know you started this thread about a different song, but it led me to "Feedbag" which I have to say is brilliant

the harmony around 3.00 is excellent in painkillers.
the song itself reminds me of the chemical bros and wayne coyne's 'the golden path' (compliment, obviously)
