Latest Percussive Ambience track. No loops, all orginally written, with only mallet percussion and piano instruments. smiley
Official Song Plugging Thread 8 years ago
Here's the final product of a song that I wrote. I posted a preview of it last week, and finished it this week.

It's composed of piano and mallet percussion instruments, and is the first track on a new album I'm going to begin, called "Percussive Ambience."

Is the 7th in production?
The Electronica Cadavre 7 8 years ago
I've been thinking about it... would you guys be interested if I continued the Electronica Cadavres again? I know Lapskin tried to take them up and continue them himself, which I was thrilled to hear that he was, but I never heard back on how the project was going... but now, I feel really up to continuing them...

So whaddya guys say? Shall we shoot for a 7th?

visit this if you have no idea what I'm talking about.

Electronica Cadavre 7 9 years ago
The original concept of the ECs was for each person to create one part to be put into a compilation of electronica, with each part being 60 seconds to 80 seconds in length.

of course, that how I have done it, and if Lapskin is changing the concept then that is totally fine by me. smiley

I must also admit that I'm a drfiter, also. I've just been drifting away from music production but also drifting towards more things in video production. As I keep experimenting with that, it just shows how much more I would like to something in video prod. for my future career.

Drummers - Percussionists 9 years ago
My specialties are any kind of mallet percussion (Marimba is my forte. haha). I can either play single or double malletted, whichever.

I can also play drum set, but not the best. I can lay down rhythms and all that. But I'm way way better at playing a single snare drum rather than 6 or 7 things at once like a drum set.

Here's an example of me playing my drum. Haha. Just keep in mind that that was recorded more than a year ago, so my skills have developed way more than that. smiley

The Electronica Cadavre 6! 9 years ago
EC6 is still going on, so still don't hesitate to get them parts in.

And don't worry about the due date, cause I'll probably end up ignoring that anyway. smiley
The Electronica Cadavre 6! 9 years ago
We now have 6 parts for EC6, and there's probably enough room for about 4 or 5 more parts, cause I don't want it to last any longer than 13 minutes.

There's still plenty of spots open, so get your part done and send it in when you can!
The Electronica Cadavre 6! 9 years ago

The Electronica Cadavre 6! 9 years ago
On January 28th, 2007, at 12:00 a.m., the very first Electronica Cadavre was posted here to iCompositions. Well now, we're starting EC6. Pretty amazing. Anyways, here are the rules for you guys once again.

Rules

-Your part must be from 40 seconds to 1 minute and 20 seconds in length. If it ends up to be more than 1 minute and 20 seconds long, I might still use it, but your part may be cut down to the correct size.

-You may include lyrics in your song, but must have no explicit content.

-Your part can be without loops, some loops, or all loops.

-It must be a new song, not a track you have already made.

-It may be either AAC or MP3, I can accept either one.

-There's no specific key or tempo or anything. Just as long as it's your own and it's electronica then send it to me.

-You may also collaborate on a part if you want to, but it still has to follow the time rules.

You can send me your parts either through iChat (my screen name is Jake778877, email ( jacobthurston[@]mac.com ), or upload it here to iComp and message me a link to your part.

I am giving you guys 7 weeks to get your parts in. So have them in by March 21st . But send me in your parts in as soon as possible, so I can post it earlier.

I will be accepting anything from 10-12 parts, depending how long EC6 will be. But if you have your part done after I've announced that EC6 is finished, go ahead and send me it anyway, so you can get an automatic spot in EC7. But you only have the 2 weeks between the day it's finished to the day I'm posting it for you to get me your part. (If you don't quite understand this then message me and I'll clarify)

So remember, follow the rules, and send me your part. But above all, just have fun! smiley I'm hoping this one will go great just like all the other 5 have.

And if you have no idea what this is, then visit The Official EC Series Blog to find out what the Electronica Cadavre 6 is, more info on how they work, upcoming events, and links to EC's 1-5.

So if you have any questions, just comment here in the forum, message me, or comment in my blog and I'll get back to you as soon as I can smiley

And if you could answer the poll and leave a comment saying your in so I can know how many people want to be in EC6 and whoo all wants to be in.

Here's an example of what I'm doing: link

Order on Artist Page? 9 years ago
Yeah I know that. I was just wondering if it would make it easier for the person visiting your profile to find a specific song a little easier if you have a huge giant list of songs.

But again, just an idea.
Order on Artist Page? 9 years ago
K, this idea just hit me all of a sudden, and I have no idea if this has been asked before, but hey, I'm gonna give it a shot.

You know how if you click on a genre in the Music section, you can change the order on how the songs are listed? Well, what if we could do the same on someone's artist page? Like say, if you want to see what they're latest song is, you can click Date Uploaded then Ascending or Descending. Or maybe you want to see what this certain person's top song is without clicking on a random song by them first, and finding out that way, you can just click and press update and see a full list of their weekly top songs.

I personally think this could be a handy idea, but I have no idea what you guys think of it, or even if it's possible to do.

So fill me in here! smiley

iComp Highlights 2007 ? 10 years ago
Yeah, iCR has definitely been one of the biggest things of '07. Along with the premiere of Criminally Overlooked.

And also the Songs of Summer and Invisible Dyad contests were another biggy.

And this has also been the year where I had put together 5 Electronica Cadavres with a whole bunch of awesome people. So that's just a little personal highlight for me smiley

I think the improvement of the Tools section was pretty sweet too.

Use screen sharing in the new iChat 4, that way you can see the other person's screen (or the other person can see your screen) and it automatically starts an audio chat so you can also hear what he/she is saying and even what the song sounds like you're working on.

Other than screen size, what is the difference between the 20 in iMac and 24 in iMac?


Processor speed. The 20 has 2.0 and 2.4 GHz models, and the 24 has 2.4 and 2.8 GHz. And the 2.8 GHz model has the Intel Core 2 Duo Extreme processor so it'd run even faster.

Songs on Artist Page 10 years ago
Hey, just a quick suggestion if this is possible.

Could it be possible if we can have those little windows come up with the album art and descriptions for the songs on our artist pages like it does on the Music page? Cause I think that that would be a pretty neat feature.

Then maybe there could be those little [+1] or [+2] etc. next to collabs that we did so people on our artist page can know if it's a collab or not? Like if we uploaded the collab and it's under our Music category instead of our Collaborations category. I dunno.

What do you guys think?
The Electronica Cadavre 5 10 years ago
10 parts now. I'll still be accepting more parts! smiley I'm thinking another 2 or 3 parts will finish it up pretty well. But if I don't get those in in another 2 or 3 weeks then I'll just upload what I got.

You still have a chance smiley
The Electronica Cadavre 5 10 years ago
Ok, since this is the 5th one, i decided that I'll be allowing that EC5 will be around 15 minutes long, just for this special event. smiley

Meaning more people can squeeze parts in! smiley

Anything as long as it's classified as Electronica.
The Electronica Cadavre 5 10 years ago
That's totally fine.
The Electronica Cadavre 5 10 years ago
Haha well here we are. We've made it up to 5. So you guys now the rules, so here they are once again.

Da Rules

-Your part must be from 40 seconds to 1 minute and 20 seconds. If it ends up to be more than 1 minute and 20 seconds long, then some of your part might get cut off to be in it. (If it's 1 or 2 seconds longer than the time limit, then I can still accept it)

-You may include lyrics in your song (like vox), and must have no explicit content.

-Your part can be without loops, some loops, or all loops.

-It must be a new song, not a track you have already made.

-It may be either AAC or MP3, I can accept either one.

You may also collaborate on a part if you want to, but it still has to follow the time rules.

And you guys can send me your part for it either to my email address jacobthurston[@]mac.com or send it to me through iChat (my screen name is Jake778877 ) with your part. Or even yousendit.com works for me too.

So I'm giving you guys 7 weeks to get your parts in. So the due date for the parts would be October 26. But although you guys have all this time, I would like to have your parts in ASAP, so I can upload it earlier.

And I am also accepting around 10-12 parts, depending on how long EC5's going to be. But if you get your part done and find out that EC5's already finished, still send me your part, and then you'll get an automatic part in EC6 (if we get that far). But you only have the time between the time I upload EC5 and after I finish it, so try to get it in to me when you can.

So remember, follow the rules, and send me your part. But most importantly, have fun with creating you part smiley I am really looking forward to this one and am hoping that this will be the best EC (Electronica Cadavre) yet.

And if you have no idea what this is, then visit The Official EC Blog Center to find information about what this is, more information about how they work, upcoming events, and even links to some EC1-4. So if you have any questions, just comment here in the forum, message me, or comment on my blog and I'll get back to ya as soon as I can smiley

And here's an example of what I'm doing link.

(And if you could, answer the poll so I can tell how many people are wanting to be in and comment on the thread so I can tell who all wants to be in it.)

This might seem like pointless topic, but is it possible to have our artist icons bigger on our artist page? Like at least the size that they are when we post comments?

Or maybe even have the icon take up almost the entire length of the Artist Information box and then our user names below it? Tell me what ya think. smiley
icomp live tv 10 years ago
Who needs video streaming when you have iTunes?

Just make a video podcast and put them on iTunes. Then it'd get a cool little icon over in the iC Radio area.

But yeah, I don't think just a show about Music Videos doesn't really sound like iComp Live TV should sound like. What the topic iComp Live TV sounds like to me is where you share like a couple of the weekly top 10 songs, maybe a few music videos, any music news, forum topics, anything that deals with iC is what sounds like iComp Live TV should be to me. smiley

But looking forward to see how this will turn out!

8 parts now! It's coming by quickly.

It's 9 minutes and 46 seconds long now. So if I get two more 1:20 parts, then that would reach my goal of it being inbetween 12 and 13 mintues.

And I'd like to get this done before August begins. So get those parts in sometime, guys! smiley
The Electronica Cadavre 4 10 years ago
All right, 7 parts now. I'm probably going to be accepting 3 more parts, so if you still want to be in EC4, you're going to need to try and get here before all the parts are taken up!
