Don't worry about where I come from: here I am, for love and hate.
I am back from the ends of the earth. How here am I? Who can say...

Still out there

March 24th, 2014 + 8:03 PM  ·  Stringbreaker

Yeah. Having passed through surgery and out of New Zealand and into California, much is different in my world. I have a YouTube stream as Mister Stringbreaker and a link is at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zAj3drdZQcI&feature=share&list=UUTrrDm89paAnDYBGxIHE6Rw
Things is, I have fallen back into guitar land very heavily and I am preparing to record. Expect videos with or without all of the fancy graphics.

River Run

March 24th, 2014 + 8:03 PM  ·  Stringbreaker

A departure from the classical pieces I was reworking. I built it to accompany video ideas. You can see them in the YouTube stream.

Etude #1 (Chopin) revised

March 15th, 2008 + 11:03 AM  ·  Stringbreaker

One more pass on this one, this time with an enhanced bass part. I don't know how I would percuss. this one, but I may revisit this in the future. Trying to work out the EQ and compression, but I am still new at the FL Studio controls. Practice improves, I hope...

Etude #1 (Chopin)

March 14th, 2008 + 11:03 AM  ·  Stringbreaker

Back for a bit after a long stretch in shadow. The theme for this composition is "tone color is everything". FL Studio, Sytrus and some compression. The idea is that the composition sounds like Chopin was trying to use digital effects on a piano before they were invented. Minimal enhancements bring this out.

I may well be gone again for a stretch until May, but this is not due to a lack of desire to be here: I am relocating far away. I will have details later.

The breaking of strings is the beginning of wisdom...

Claire De Lune - Debussy

September 20th, 2007 + 11:09 AM  ·  Stringbreaker

An attempt to lend a modern feel to an old favorite. I'd classed this one among my failures: Reverie worked a lot better. The overall feel I was attempting was of everything being underwater, yet clear enough to see through. Enough yammering on my part, let it speak for itself.

Memories of the Alhambra

September 20th, 2007 + 10:09 AM  ·  Stringbreaker

Another attempt to get a guitaresque feel into a synthesizer piece. Also, the video of the great guitarists posted after the recent crash made me think of this attempt. The almost warbling quality of this piece has always made me think of how electronic effects could enhance it. Maybe I will go back to this and clean it up a little more...
