Baboons and Loons

Description
OK - here's the thing .... Char isn't the only one with a shiny new toy .... so ... in my first attempts to create my first GB song ... I started messing with some LOOPS .... and I created a little jungle song .... Scofugate heard my little ditty and said to me .. hey I used some of those same sounds in an early tune - and sent me his song. I just loved it and got some crazy sick idea in my head of how to blend the two songs together ... and when I did that just thought it needed some crazy baboon, loon, banshee screaming on it ..... this is the result !

Unintelligible Gibberish
Wow! When this song kicked in at 3:20 that really knocked my socks off. Any song with Unintelligible Gibberish for the lyrics I'm all for. I think that the acid I did 30 years ago just kicked in again. I enjoyed all 6 minutes of this one.

There she is...
I got a sneak peek at an early version of this and sooooo wanted some Alannah vox over it, and you succumbed to my request, how awesome is that!? The dreams of baboons and loons will never be the same with Alannah's screaming and Scott's excellent additions to this (almost has a Pink Floyd psychedelic trippiness to it.) Love the drums and the screams... Astronomy Domine, anyone? Watch out world, Alannah's got a shiny new toy, and it's pointed at YOU! Kick ass, girl! And Scott, excellent additions here! OK, time to come back down off of this... gotta turn off the lava lamp.
ttfn,

Cameron said 2648 days ago (February 21st, 2010)
okay...
...let's just say that this is AMAZING!

I can't believe this is your FIRST GB song! It's very professional-sounding.

Your voice is a wild-cat! Not a baboon.

Everything fits together very well in the soundscape. I'm impressed with your imagination and your musicality.

You use sounds in a very vivid palette of colors.

Okay, maybe I *DID* hear a baboon at the end! ;-)

Well technically .....
... only part of it was my first GB song ...all the GOOD STUFF was Scott's GB song ... and then I just sort of pasted them together and screamed all over the top of it so to hide the seams ! hahahaha hopefully I will learn how to make this kind of stuff completely on my own one day ! Thanks .

Ed Hannifin said 2647 days ago (February 22nd, 2010)
THIS...
...is how it begins....

It sounds great, Alannah. Great production values, and truly excellent gibberish....

You have a good sense of how to blend loops and sounds...

Ed
Alannah said 2647 days ago (February 22nd, 2010)
Well as I said above and in my description ....
... I was in the process of trying to find loops and sounds which worked together .. it was a basic first step ... and then Scott sent me HIS tune ... and I said .... Hmmmmm yes .... I NEED to have this and put it in the middle of my simple little piece ! hahaha I guess I am kind of a cheater really .... I WILL MAKE my own 100% owned and operated tune soon .... but I got a lot to learn first !

This is saturated with primal energy. It rocks hard. The sounds chosen complement each other well, and the vocs convey a lot of emotion.

Thanks Dave ....
... actually I was kinda stoked to hear how two songs could meld together and make it kinda work ... I guess thats the beauty of loops .... you can use it a number of different ways and since it is the same loop ... blending styles together is easier ! The banshee part .. not so sure ... hahahaha

Great Mix of Sounds
Very tasteful selection of loops. The bass out front with the guitar and e piano is beautiful. And the baboons do fit seamlessly. Love the harmonica. The 2nd (more rock) section was equally cool. Love the big sound at 3:18.
