Tension & Release
on: February 01, 2017, 17:59:08
Finally finished a song I've had on the burner for quite some time.

https://soundcloud.com/ashbordeaux/tension-and-release

First time I've done a drum track from scratch without using any loops.  ::Dutch::
Also first time I've used tempo modulation to slow down the bridge pretty drastically.  ::Note::

I'm really curious to hear what you beautiful people's opinions are on the song as art, as well as the technical mixing aspect.
Won't go into detail but this one was a challenge and I feel I grew a lot from a mixing perspective on this one.

Thanks!  ::heart::

Thanks @tuff bransch
I appreciate your kind words and comments about the slower bridge part :-)
I know it needs a lot of work with mixing and just skills in general.
Hopefully I'll do better with these issues in the next one.

Loved this @AshBordeaux although that picture freaked me out...  :o :o 


Love the slow down - really well done. Can't help on the mixing - lots of experts on here though.... Really enjoyed the song.. impressed you programmed the drums from scratch..

@AshBordeaux Lots to like here. Lyric is funny and quirky. Great sounds introduced in with humor and timing. Howbout posting the lyric? Without wanting to sound like a stuck record, that change 1:15 is so seamless and masterful. Kind of like a change you would hear in a Beatles song. Great stuff

oh my @AshBordeaux that is great....this is my cup of tea, weird and fun

and good songwriting too, the bridge has some cool john lennon-ish sound, both in the chords as well as in the vocals....awesome

btw, have you seen the announcement of our upcoming: write a song with a Beatles-twist competition:
https://www.songwriter-forum-kitchen.com/forum/competitions/the-new-songwriting-challenge/

any chance I can team up with you for that one....?

@AshBordeaux   Love this!    Man, you have a very cool unique fun sound and I love the sound effects you are using.    And man.. that Steve Busceme picture was freaking me out.
Well done!

Hi my dear friend ! Just listened to this UFO again  ;D and I really enjoyed it, it's full of energy, the melody is super catchy, you found some great ideas to make it freaky, I am a fan of your voice but beware when you start to pitch (at 1:45 mn) it become slightly unfaithful ;D great job buddy  ::thumb::

Hey @AshBordeaux , man, that's a while ago since I've listened to your work, this is really creative!! And a great contrast you're describing in the lyrics, and accompany that with nice contracts in the soundscape!
Well done, I enjoyed the listen!
