Low quality posts and troll posts will be reported.
I consider this shitposting, but I'll let it slide. This thread is specifically for posting and rating personal projects, and not big artists like Macintosh Plus, St. Pepsi, Blank Banshee, etc.
Well I have my bandcamp stuff here... It isn't exclusively vaporwave but I would say there's a lot of vaporwave influence in there...
Give me feedback
I'm not telling you how to live your life.
This is my debut EP. It's not my first time making music, but its my first attempt at vaporwave. So far, I've received some pretty positive feedback, both on YouTube and here on /mu/
Let me know what you think!
I was listening to eccojams nonstop and got some ideas.
I can hear the water for sure. The thing with me was I wasn't trying to go for straight vaporwave, but I was trying to do it more in a Daft Punk type context...
Also, since dubs, I'll drop a comment for ya m80
I like it, keep it up I feel like you'll just get better with time. I don't listen to much vaporwave though but regardless I like what I'm hearing. The only criticism I can think of is that 夢 feels like kind of a cliche kanji but that's because I'm a loser.
Thanks, man! I can definitely hear more dance influence in your music. It's not just the average slowed down 90's samples.
Thanks, anon! I was debating whether or not to include the symbols in the final version of the album cover.
I try. The thing is that I'm not a HUGE fan of vaporwave aside from a few albums, but I'm expanding my palate there. I appreciate what you're doing because it doesn't sound boring. A lot of what I do hear sounds boring, but you're alright.
I've had such a hard time working on this new mixtape though because I'm trying to go for vaporwave meets Justice, but I don't know how to make any of it work or if it even can.
To be honest, I'm terrible at giving advice. I start by choosing the songs I want to sample, deciding which ones would sound good together, (usually a main track and a secondary sample) and I start by slowing and chopping up the main track, rearranging it, and adding the secondary samples where I see fit. I'm more of a straight up vaporwave producer, so that probably won't help you very much.
here ya go
made this and the other two vaportraps as a joke but w/e
i feel like me, a tryhard peak capitalist producer trying his try hard hand at vapor trap, i have a valid perspective
oh and it's christmas music
Heres something I've been working on. I'm not trying to be a Vaporwave artist or anything, I was just bored one day and thought it might sound cool. So don't really judge me too harshly
>How do I make vaporwave music and be in the scene and have cool internet friends that also make vaporwave music?
the scene will be dead in months, find people you like, work on your craft, work on your craft, work on your aesthetic, work on your craft, find fans, find other artists. be a great supporter, be energetic.
Oh, no! The genre has more than three artists now! God forbid vaporwave expands. I would say this proves my point. It's inspiring people to create, and as a result, growing as a genre
>the sound of using tainted honey as earplugs
I'm going to be listening to some new ones now
Also, I'm considering making a blog where people could submit their music and I'd review it for free. Would anyone be interested?
Totally agree bro. By the way did you check out this sick piece of art I created by slowing down that cisco call music sample in audacity that's been slowed down in audacity on at least 20 different projects this year? It's really philosophical and contemporary.
I'm having a bit of a hard time with this one. Certain moments seem very over-played and a bit cookie-cutter, but you also have these great moments (the LoZ feel at 2:30, the pop bit at 1:18, various other tense-and-release parts) and I haven't decided if they make up for eachother. It's also a personal general dislike of ambient vaporwave, so I may not be your target audience
Basically, I'd say keep at it and focus on making sounds you feel you haven't heard before. In a genre like vaporwave being unique is key.
Who left this strawman out? It's scaring away all my birds!
This is great stuff. Very well put together and it sounds professionally (if I can even use that word in this genre) done. The songs have enough variety and progression between the five of them to keep you interested through basically all of it. Also, I feel like there is just enough going on the tracks to keep them interesting and exciting while also retaining a relaxing and uncluttered feel. I really like this.
Also, do you mind if I ask what software you used to make it just out of curiosity?
Thank you very much!
This may cost me some browny points, but I only use Garageband and Audacity. I've used Garageband for like six years and It's what I'm best at, going to try to learn either Mixcraft or Ableton next. Trying to step up my game
Cool, here is my projekt, TDK Dreams. I just came out with this album a few days ago. It's Christmas-themed.
