Description
I haven't been making much music lately. But that hasn't stopped me from putting together collections of sounds into other-than-music. I'm in a real phase of craziness about my creativity... maybe I can channel it back into music soon. Until then, here's Other.

Love this!
David,

I want to know how to protect myself from an atomic bomb - I think it's very poor form that you started out making us think that we could be protected from an a-bomb and that we were going to find out how .................... and then went and had fun :)

Some excellent clips in here, beautifully put together.

I was wondering where you'd been.

Cheers from Oz,
Neil

Thanks, man! I'm glad you can appreciate this collage.

Sorry about omitting the important details about how to protect yourself from an atomic bomb. If I remember correctly, diving under your picnic blanket might be sufficient.

I've been away from music, is where I've been... in Hawaii and New York, and recently very very unwell and unable to focus (my health has mostly returned). Once I get serious about music, you'll see me here again :)

Thanks, Neil

Aye aye, Sir!
"I haven't been making much music lately."
Isn't that music?? Maybe "just" mixing, but that sounds like a nice track to me!
Congrats :)

Thanks John!
Those clips are great, aren't they? I've just been sort of collecting sound bites for a long time, whenever I find ones I like. I have a lot of old atomic test movies which are a great source of them (you can buy those from the DOE). I'm glad you dig this, thanks!

Strange,
but effective. Very cool sounds from the past that tend to haunt the memory of us old folks. Love the Bass & Drum backtrack. very well played and a great feel to it.

Cool use of clips my friend, very cool indeed,

Be well and be cool,

Ed

Really good track
Love all the samples they mix with the track really well esp the 'I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed or numbered'. Love the funk as well, the track reminds me of Coldcut etc with all the samples. Well done, really liked it.

This is fun stuff... great beats, basslines, samples... I really love the part where the guy says "I will not be pushed, filed, stacked...etc." it works perfectly with the music!!!

Pete & Re-pete
"....head warmongers, please "

Anyway, this so much reminds me of 5th element (one of my favorite movies). I don't think that was the message, but the cadence is right.

Great stuff David

Short circuit?
I think I recognize a quote or two.

Very playful. This was fun to listen to. The clock may be ticking, but we keep a smile about it.

BoiAfrica said 3368 days ago (September 3rd, 2008)
WOW!!!
The rhythm in this is undeniable, steady, funky, juiciness, it reminds me of someone like K-Os, very detailed. The breakdown with the hi-hat at the end is amazing - "What is YOUR job?" - brilliant! Thanks for an awesome share!!! Very smart! This definitely needs a video. I would totally volunteer my services, especially if you are inclined to make it with that lovely "liberal bias" LOL See here: http://www.youtube.com/user/BlacklineTV

Hey thanks man, I'm glad you dig this! Nice youtube channel. You are totally welcome to use this as a soundtrack for a video, preferably with a lot of 'liberal bias' :-) I like the way you skewered Ferraro.

Anarchy!
Yeah, yeah, serious TLC has gone into this one. High interest measure to measure. Nice collab with... the 20th century!

"I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, briefed, debriefed or numbered" ... wow, that just hits the spot.

The whole vibe reminds me of an audio version of those late 70-s/early 80s anarchist punk print collages that have roots in earlier underfround movements (as chronicled well in the book, "Lipstick Traces: A Secret History of the Twentieth Century," at http://www.hup.harvard.edu/catalog/MARLIP.html and Amazon.)

I liked it.
But, I couldn't explain to anyone why. I laughed at the end.
It was kind of like Terry Gilliam's big cartoon foot just coming down and stopping everything short. Thanks.

holy crap
This is brilliant. When you finished this you had to be like, "Hell yes. I just knocked it out of the park". Great samples and great placement of those samples. I'm jealous.

This is insane, sounds like you used sound clips but you sync'd them perfectly. Incredibly made piece of music. Some pretty amusing clips in there. I especially love the star trek clip from spock, lol. Nice job!
