Description
it's coming...

i would like to thank Victor (VicDiesel) for graciously sending a electro harmonix freeze pedal my way. basically it holds a note or chord for as long as you keep the button depressed. i did 3 tracks with additional effects to get some wild sounds. you'll notice them mostly in the verse sections.

Lyrics
Extinction


two hands on the clock
two hands clapping in time
springs wind down forgotten
it’s about to flatline

now we’re sinking down the hole
slipping into the mass
extinction

it’s a snowball situation
there was no preparation
no rules or regulations
on the way to desparation

now we’re sinking down the hole
slipping into the mass
extinction

a little bit hotter day after day
i little bit harder just to breathe
processed water just to drink
tradewinds blow a different way
and the nerves are simply frayed

it’s getting harder just to survive
when you’re barely alive

the flash sean around the world
the heat burned out our eyes
we’ll never know who the truth
we’ll never know who survived

now we’re sinking down the hole
slipping into the mass
extinction
now we’re sinking down the hole
slipping into the mass
extinction

So Glad to...
be able to listen to your music. Excellent musical trip this one... Lyrics capture the desperation of man's plight. Camus would approve as do I. 😬

thanks Jack
i think the doomsday clock has moved up a minute. whether its climate or crazy people in positions that they don't belong.

Freeze
Your use is pretty subtle. If you hadn't announced it explicitly I might have guessed it was a synth sound.

Additional effects: yeah. The freeze sound by itself is somewhat "cold". The SuperEgo has an effects loop where I often put a little chorus.

PS you using a mellotron, right before the guitar solo?

thanks Victor
i added space designer and a ringshifter to 2 tracks with different settings and a rotating speaker to a third track. i did try a mellotron originally but ended up using one of the male choirs.

i just read yesterday that there is a new superego out, with additional built in effects

SuperEgo+
Yeah, I saw that. I think it's mostly the effects loop internalized. The freeze functionality looks pretty much the same.

thanks KC
when i was laying down the vocal track, i did the lower voice. i wasn't sure about and deleted it. i did several passes with the higher voice.although i kinda liked having the lower voice, i rerecorded it. it seemed interesting

A lot going on!
I think art rock sums it up nicely.

Fantastic soundscape although I'm not sure what the freeze pedal is doing. Whatever it is it sounds great.

Epic!

Cheers

Great tune from Vic. Nice change of pace throughout. Guitar solo blends in nicely. Way to go Vic.

Freeze ray!
It always worked for Gru.It sounds like something I should investigate. My friend Chris says this sounds rustic, which is a compliment, I think!

rustic....
.... i guess that can go either way. but it's fine with me.

you might want to check out the electro harmonix super ego. it does the freeze thing but has more flexibility and options.

Really like this one, Vic. The guitar FX and playing are great but I also like where the vocal is sitting in the mix. Cosy psychedelia. A fine trip. Thanks.
