What do you sound like on Nu-ILX?

I made this track this evening using Audacity and Reason as a metronome. I've hardly ever recorded music with guitar and vocals, tending to do more electronic based stuff. It's a shame about the hiss, and the fact I can't play guitar or sing very well but I like the song I think.

Pointers and constructive criticism very welcome.

Now what do you sound like?

Huh. I'm listening to Spiders right now, and I have to say, very Barrett-y. Your sound quality's better than mine tho (no surprise as I use garageband).

I posted something up mere minutes before old ilx went down the swanney. I described it as "po-faced proto-80's nonsense" and I stand by that.

Having practically clean, loud-in-the-mix vocals is a bit of a novelty for me but its something I'm sticking to for a bit to see what happens.

I was listening to Carl Craig's "Televised Green Smoke" and I wanted to make Stevie Wonder's "My Cheri Amour" sound like that. No vocals yet because I feel inadequate to sing Stevie songs I can't be bothered right now.

I don't think so, although I'm not totally sure. As far as I know Phil's moving across the water soon, so he's doing this Wooden Coin stuff with Laura from Harper Lee (and me, occasionally), which might get released somehow, but I think my participation brought about the death of Kicker.

I should try joining bands I don't like, and see if I have the same anti-success effect.

Is it an old/classic break or from a newer work? Honestly it doesn't matter these days unless real money is involved, but if it's a blatant/recognizable sample then giving credit is nice, especially if it's from someone who's still working.

Thank you, everyone!

I figure I'm a guy that records in my bedroom and posts music for free, with the intention of never accepting a single penny for any recording of my music. . . so, I'm not too worried. The two or three folks that download anytime I put something new up will be devastated when the lawsuits from Van Morrison, the James Bown estate, etc., etc. start showing up. I figure it's not me playing the drums, so I should probably give credit.

And, with that, here's something else entirely: https://austinato.bandcamp.com/track/38

It's part of this, which I think will probably be ongoing for quite some time. I'm not exactly sure what it is, yet.

Totally different head. Totally. (Austin), Tuesday, 19 February 2019 16:30 (two months ago) Permalink

i think that's a good attitude, austin! i have always been very liberal about reusing elements of other people's work in my own, but that's because i always try to place it in a new context rather than just straight up ripping something off, and i'm not making any money off of anything. on the rare occasion that i get commissions or get invited to show something in public, i only use my own elements. if i ever did use someone else's work in something that would earn me money, i would get their permission first.

Karl Malone, Tuesday, 19 February 2019 19:38 (two months ago) Permalink

the ease of doing something doesn't really relate to whether or not it's the right thing to do. asking permission is clearly the right thing to do. if it is difficult and you think your request for permission may be denied, why not use something else or make your own thing or whatever?

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Tuesday, 19 February 2019 19:41 (two months ago) Permalink

well i have asked, just haven't heard back. the funny thing is that it's something i added very late to the song and could take it off very easily (it's just played on the outro) or even make a different version of the beat but it sounds sooooooo good and i love it. but i also didn't perform it or record it so i feel weird using it. anyway, gonna keep trying to get permission for now... just wondering about ppls general feelings about this sort of thing

Heez, Tuesday, 19 February 2019 20:11 (two months ago) Permalink

I respectfully disagree with La Lechera on whether or not it's clearly the right thing to do, although I will freely acknowledge that I hold a minority viewpoint on these kinds of things. i lean toward cory doctorow's views on copyright. as far as existing laws go, i think the visual arts world's lenient stance on reappropriating material makes much more sense than the music world's version, which just seems bonkers and overly restrictive imo, and way too accommodating to corporations.

with all that said, i totally support the idea that with music, at least, if you intend to profit in any way, or even think it's possible that you would in the future, you MUST get permission first. and if you can't, you should find another way to do it without sampling someone else's music. note that i don't think this is a good situation or that's how the perfect world would operate - there are plenty of visual artists who appropriate things all the time, and it's generally covered by fair use as long as you're doing something creative/artistic with it. and even when you're not (like a lot of richard prince's stuff, arguably), it's often covered by fair use(or not - he is permanently in litigation and there hasn't been a legal consensus). i wish music was like that too, but it's not. copyright is much more restrictive with music. so to prevent yourself from being sued, you have to ask permission first.

Karl Malone, Tuesday, 19 February 2019 20:42 (two months ago) Permalink

I agree with both sides to some extent. If you're sampling a recording, you're going to have to contact the artist's label in most cases, so if you're not going to make any real money then it's not even worth alerting them to your existence. And some genres have a proud tradition of sampling, bootlegging, etc. It can still be a controversial topic though, even in terms of making a Bandcamp release of dance remixes/bootlegs of pop songs 'pay what you want'.

On the other hand, I personally go to great lengths to avoid it, and for me it's part of the fun to replay or recreate samples. And if I make a bootleg I won't charge for it, but I don't get mad if others do (especially if it's all-original production).

I'm not clearing a Fleetwood Mac drum loop I'm using on a new thing

You guys need some irl drummers :)
I don’t feel too strongly about it honestly, I just feel strongly about the act of asking for permission in general.

the james brown estate is probably going to tell you to fuck off

Well then, I can play that song in a jokey style without the drums: https://soundcloud.com/austin-anderson-337534977

Xxxxp thanks dog latin! I’ve always loved dance music, used to DJ, etc. it’s super-fun to be making a new type of music (aside from the band I’m in with shakey). The tracks we’ve put out so far are more like b-sides. Im excited about some of the other tracks even more. We got an amazing saxophonist to play on one track, and I have a couple of breakbeat tracks that I’m saving for a later release.

So I've been making my own tracks for a while now, and you can hear em here - https://soundcloud.com/pluwa. Not really sure how to describe them (which I know sounds super-pretentious), some are a bit Balearicy or ambient, some are a bit moodier...

This is good too! Neu-style vibes...

Thank you for listening!

I like your stuff too, paolo. It's very skeletal and atmospheric.
