A long break after the lockdown have me stagnated and hang to dry. I’m coming back here to put down a few lines to help fuel my passion for music. Here allow me to introduce my newly discovered artist at Soundcloud Makeup and Vanity Set.
This composer has the repetitive sound pattern of the intro lure you into the mystery surrounding the soundtrack, suggesting some hidden mechanical transformation about to set in motion, while all this is going through, a surprise insert of rhythm change break the dazzling twilight of the intro and set you on the path of the journey with an open mind in what is to come.
A close look at Makeup and Vanity Set at Bandcamp reveals a long list of music production which got me excited at what I will find there. I might end up purchase a few of that awesome track. See you guys in the next post.
I started photography with a 35mm digital camera and fallen in love with analogue photography later with the analogue way of doing things, it helps me to stay away from working with computers, it also allows me to work with my hands on tangible materials in the darkroom. The 6×6 format allows me to balance between the portability of the camera I use and produce a better print quality. At this point, I made a tee for this square format film I use. You cannot deny the amazing details when you have the film developed in your hand. Every time it got me excited.
If you are starting out on film photography, you can check out Film Photography Podcast for more info. They do have a store selling film stocks to the communities of photographer.
Found this gem today and love how CRYSEHD did to the arrangement of this music. There are moments where the track will come to an abrupt end and pick up the next second with amazing sound texture and dynamic beats. The synth part does introduce a nice blend of distortion. Not sure how I imagine this track to be used in my imagination, but it is refreshing different from so many other artists.
This film just so happens to be black and white too, compare to my previous review of the A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night. The sexy thing about it is its not from Hollywood. As each day gone by I’m drifting away from the so-called “high-end production” movie. ‘B’ grade movies have a lot more to ofter than what most people thought. The Painted Bird is not anyway near ‘B’ grade. Give it a go if you are into a slow pace movie that will bring you to the unknown journey and back, to realize you are still on your couch. An amazing experience you might find yourself missing for awhile.
I’m must post this video from YouTube about this amazing artist Gary P Hayes doing the Korg Volca series jam. It just leaves me wanting for more of such amazing music. I did enjoy a few good jams from other channels but his videos stand out from the other. His jams are filled with melody and progressive movement. Very inspiring to watch and learn. I’m also collecting Volca currently, I did play with my Sample and Bass occasionally. Going to need more of those Volca on my desk soon.
Last night I decided to revisited the Death Proof by Quentin Tarantino. There is something special about the way the dialogues, suspends and dangers were presented in the movie, together it leads right up to the violent moment that marks the untimely demise of the characters greatly intrigue me. Another timeless piece. I’m always a fan of Tarantino movies.
What I like about this album is that all the songs included in it are good. Using synthesizer if you one didn’t do it right it just plain annoying to listen, mainly with a lot of distortion and high pitch. In the mix of this album, I can hear the instruments are perfectly in harmonic with each other. The beats are relaxing and smooth. You can almost listen to this for a long time and never have to feel overwhelmed by a lot of effects and dull repetitive rhythm.
This was inspired by alchemy symbol: Quintessence, the link of Hermetic Seal of Light is the key to alchemy study, and also the proof that we once knew how to combine the spark from our spirit and infuse it with the matter provided by nature. A rather sad reflection of today’s science that absolutely denial the spiritual aspect of our nature, often discard findings that do not fit into the narrative of modern science.
In the centre of the design is the Quintessence symbol represent the union of science and religion, on the religion ring, represent the distortion perspective in conflict with science, on the font ring, represent the scatch idea of how little we know of ourselves. On the outer ring represent the continuity of our eternal self.
I made this when Windows 10 was about to roll out, many people were outraged by Microsoft quietly update the current user to Windows 10. I was among these people and realized how unethical Microsoft acted towards its user. This event also promotes the idea of using Linux for my daily work. I installed my first Debian system after walking away from it all these years. Finally, I have come to appreciate how Linux its clean UI and fast performance greatly benefit me.
When I first heard the Driver, I can clearly envision a hero ready to embark on the last journey. To save somebody or to destroy the enemy is entirely irrelevant. It keeps me on the edge of what is to come. A superhero song I love it. Thank you.
