Orange Scream w/z293

Description
Z293 makes my day (again) by lending his talent to what was just another jam. This piece grew by laying a bass & drum track and then at a later date coming back and without really figuring the key (sorry) just jamming along. The sort of breathy organ sound reminded of something I'd seen in younger days at an ELP concert. Of course Keith had big globs of actual steam/smoke billowing out of the B3 synchronized to his playing. The title stems from a dream I had with lots of Orange in it and the fact that Z's playing screams :-)

Hope you all have a great Holiday. Thanks for listening.

You guys both made my day
Apart from the picture, this has no Blair Witch about it. It's open and optimistic. Beautiful soundbed. The first minute is great, very punchy, full of energy. The last three minutes are even better. Z's opening guitar foray (0:55) knocked me out ... christ ... as always. The best sounding electric guitar in the known universe. It ends all too soon. Replay. Fantastic musicianship, amazing production. You guys are certainly among my musical heroes. Very refreshing.

LOVE the breathy organ sound!

oh dear yes :-) at different stages tho. I am also guilty of using midi shamelessly. Thats two votes for an open sound. So just on that score I'm thrilled. Anne always a pleasure to read your thoughtful comments.

The Blair Witch, don't think so man, gray or black as for the music, you are too up beat for that sort of thing.
Wow, everything catered for here, John you have found somebody that can keep up with you and do real justice to your work. Expertly played chaps
and a great mix.

orange crush
mix is killer. every sound is distinct, no crowding, even sounds great without phones on my crappy desk speakers. love the hair band elements in this - the shrieking guitar over the furious keys - very cool. really like the key jam break around 2:30 with that funky little melody. love the way the mix seems to chime, made me think of one of those bell choirs, only on redbull. great imaginative composition kids, really enjoyed.

chimes on redbull
now that is a song title ..lol... I think Gary putting this through Ozone helps a ton. The mix was so much more present when I compared to the one that came out of Pro Tools. Craig, appreciate you leaving such a generous comment.

Orange Crush
John your playing on this one is superb and you're right I did come home from Christmas shopping the day I did these solos. I think I did the whole thing in about two hours because of the inspiration I got out of this track. And to all that liked the mix, it was John's mix I just ran it through Ozone for a little more punch. Once again thanks for the ride.

More notes than I can conceive
Maybe that comes from not paying attention to little things like the key. Very very nice on all parts... No nits to pick just well deserved bows to proffer.

that damn key
I think its cause I'm lazy. I'll do a bass and drum thing, then re visit it a week later and completely forget what the hell i was doing. So then its just try to jam a long. psyched to know you think it works..

Ed Hannifin said 2901 days ago (December 9th, 2009)
Good juxtaposition...
...of synth sounds and guitar sounds.... Phrasing on both ends is perfect...Both players making things sound BIG by not overplaying... There's space in the phrasing, and in the sounds used...

Sounds very 'together'... not like two separate things....

my fav part too. Ed, it's really cool you think we sound 'together'. Seriously, its something I think we really hoped for. More like a band thing. Z's only down in CT we'll have to drag him to a Ziti gig.

Great track - incredible collab
I remember a vivid recurring dream from my youth that featured florescent green and orange dinosaurs living down in the gully where the abandoned train tracks ran. Thanks for the memory jog. Now I just dream I'm working and wake up tired. The backing tracks on this are so cool and unexpected at times - and the guitar just rips. Nice work.

This seems to draw from so many places musically. I am only listening on the laptop speakers, but it sounds full and well produced. I love the way this one sweetens up and then gets edgy. The guitar is great, I agree, but so are the back ground instruments and synths.
Very nice,
Stephen

Inspiration & energy in spades.
Wow, I love it. I also appreciate that I'm not the oly one who records "bass-ackwards" around here. The inspiration has to come from your primary axe -- or any axe of the moment. And you've got inspiration and energy here in spades. Speaking of rambling: I saw ELP a couple of times... I long for the day when chops and composition can merge like that again. (And you gotta love Emerson's Flying-flipping stage rig, lifting him up in the air as he played!)

And man, I GOTTA check-out more Z293, he's just screaming.

This really kicks
some MAJOR a**, a big grand rock sound, "momentous" comes to mind.

Blazing guitar playing, nimble lead synth doubled by vibes (GREAT effect!), and the breathy organ adds a great spice to the mix.

To my ears, this is really ARTFUL rock, all-out energy but controlled and at a reasonable volume so all the various sound elements come through, crystal-clear.

Great job on this, guys.
