this is the only song i made that i like im super lazy about setting up my shit to make more twinpeakscore my shit i use to record/make drums/sample crap is maschine and I absolutely fucking hate it because every time i get that piece of shit out to make something there is ALWAYS something wrong with the software and i spend all day fixing/reinstalling that piece of crap.
i have garageband and old logic but i dont have cool drums in those. i need ableton or something.
>>55647195 This is exactly the stuff I'd produce, but I hate sitting in front of my computer with a guitar and setting up a shitty mic with audacity, that's why I stopped recording music. I don't have any money for better equipment, I could still record something with the stuff I got, but I'm also too lazy
have a decent number of chord progressions, little melodies, synth loops etc but dont know what to do with them. make them fast, heavy, love songs, political songs, random trippy shit? having everything so easily at my disposal makes it harder to focus, i could use someone else around here to help put these ideas in order
>>55647639 yeah except even opening ableton is too much stress and no words come out of me right now anywys it makes me sick to think about juicing my fucking problems for music too, like it ilegitimizes how i feel
Sidewalk chunk symphony Hits hard, but it ain't mean Auto-portrait, but it ain't me It's you who can't believe, Won't believe in the Street sounds, ants swarmin Crawlin coffee grounds I seen your sister hangin around Dropping piggy nickels in patchwork pockets Like, If you want it need it but don't got it They say prayers do somethin At least distract the goddamn unconscious
Redirect them ropes Tuggin so hard at the back of your throat Youre not chokin but your prides Been worse than broke for a while Functioning, for someone else Hitting someone else's High notes High birth Throw the babies out With the baptism bath But now you got time And a dozen silver spoons to look at
So, That's that Don't bother bringin it back With the slow reverse And a pile of poor man's trash Can't eat flat screens Boiled Jordan's you can but won't Cause that logos been there like a birthmark And the textbooks didn't seem so smart to invest in When your best friend got his head caved in For that jersey you lent him Smart kid, smoke the sorrows Well spoken retards never know Picking up the gun is an easier load Than strained smiles on park benches And baggies full of late teens fallout pension
The last way you kept Humidity out of eyelids Dried up the brains And I wept Midsummer day slept Between dumpster and chain link, Between the prologue and the Brink of beginning notes Sunrise, nope, that's high hopes Just headlights Breakin up the late night cockroach festivities goddamn, this whole bloody city Smells like a poorly written mystery Catalogued, false recorded history Revolutions bled to death in these streets Curb stomped by law abiding Americans Who said nothin when the city Burnt it's children to a crisp And opened fire on those who dare flee Running, screaming, their arms held babies But the boys in uniform shooting Apparently ain't responsible For doing what they were told to do Now the flags bleed their red into the streets, The blues are hiding in the poor families Who salute the bleached white flag Hanging in their doorways Curse the rebels down the street Cause the TV news tells them to Meanwhile the kids are off to school To hear chained and abused truths About how the courage of a revolutionary few Led you to paying taxes the same only now the Kings have softer names
My heart's bleeding lemon juice on these pages But it ain't turning up anything worthwhile I been saying I liked it better when I was breaking bullshit with my tongue Heavy on the ears but lighter on the heart Than making my loved ones think I'm Pissin on the places I come from The fact is, whatever the fuck I'm trying to say Is said better by emptying a pocket of its spare change Cause I can make a cheese steak wit onions be the first thing this man eats today Then I'll feel better, but shit, I get to walk away
do you guys ever get angry and blocked because you do a couple of chord progressions and then dont what the hell to do next? i hate it, is the only thing that gets me legit angry >>55647524 i know this feel we could be the next lennon and mccartney, anon
>>55648215 >Can only put together some short, interesting melodies tfw i cant into melody i wish i was a child again, i never realised what a gift was to sing nonsense out loud completly out of nowhere
I've kinda got an idea for a debut solo album I've been thinking up. Kinda a whole concept album, I've got plenty of instrumentals and ideas for instrumentals, kinda lyrical concepts, but I feel too depressed and lazy to actually make it
>>55648290 >>55648290 >tfw i cant into melody >i wish i was a child again, i never realised what a gift was to sing nonsense out loud completly out of nowhere How old are you? I don't care if you didn't do it at an age where you would've been ripe for an early start.
You have to try and believe that you can. Defeatism is a self-fulfilling prophecy. It's amazing to think that wherever you go in the world, there's music and language. No matter how secluded any mountain villa is: there will be people creating original music and speaking original language. It's in our nature. It's in your nature.
>>55648409 >How old are you? I don't care if you didn't do it at an age where you would've been ripe for an early start. 18 (lol), i've always have some ear for music, my parents have told me i was able to recognize bach or other composers from each other when i was like 3-4 without looking at the tape cover and shit like that, just by ear. but that doesn have anything to do with being creative i guess, i still manage to do some chord progressions and sometimes melodies but it always sound like unoriginal crap >You have to try and believe that you can. Defeatism is a self-fulfilling prophecy it was hard for me to understand this but after doing acid this is one of the things stuck with me, but now between school (its shitty ok, i know is going to get worse) and always feeling like shit is hard to keep the spirit, thanks for your reply, tripfag.
>>55648450 instrumentally, it'll mostly be barely overdriven, out of tune guitars playing half-depressing/half-atonal melodies, industrial drum machines laying down stale and repetitive, and a few tear-jerking, delay-soaked, upper-octave monosynth parts that will occasionally show up. "vocal instrumentation" will be vocoders, black metal vocals for heavier, darker tracks, maybe glitchy samples, and just plain old screaming
lyrically, it'll probably start out with the character having some sort of "waking up" from a half-assed suicide attempt of death by alcohol poisoning. It'll move on from there and be some sort of "upward spiral" kinda deal that'll probably just get sadder with the illusion of a happier story as the album goes on. and either the character gets out, or it'll just ambrose bierce the whole thing (an occurence on owl creek bridge or whatevs) and make it seem like the entite story has been a waste. but either way, I have the outro track already, and it sounds like "the sun is rising" and be genuinely happy. i hate to use it as an example, but let it be the Bound 2 of yeezus, how the last track didn't really fit, but just that making it the last track makes it somehow work. ideas i dont know how to work into the story: a car accident late at night, asymmetrical faces, Hell, etc. I would like the story to kinda shift around from being believable and being completely fantasy with all sorts of weird mythical shit of monsters, deformed people (inb4 two headed boy) and whatevs. Sort of like a dream state, but not sound dreamy. Maybe like having a nightmare and waking up with a horrendous anxiety attack. and no, very little of this has to do with me.
I am also interested in how I can make this all not sound edgemaster359. i dont want this album, if i ever make it, be laughable.
i think i'm going to rap it actually. it'll go on an otherwise acoustic album so i need to learn how to do production and make the music for the song not sound too jarring. no idea how it works but i'm assuming i can distort guitar sounds and make a hiphop type beat out of them. will probably be something really minimalistic in terms of production, like aesop's earliest stuff, because i have no idea what the fuck i'm doing with production
>>55648664 >that doesn have anything to do with being creative i guess, Wrong. Creativity is linked to intelligence. You seem to have had the memory and the pattern recognition at an early age and allowed it to develop with Bach, etc. That is part of intelligence.
>melodies but it always sound like unoriginal crap Look here. It's easy to "write" something good if it's stolen. This is what many people do. It's much harder to write something that is original, even if it's bad. Aspire to be original first. Make bad songs. You will get better organically.
>>55647101 Im making some atmospheric atonal avant garde black metal, its working out beautifully! I hired a couple violinists yesterday and Im trying to improve on my piano playing so I can make more softer, subtler sections.
I think this is a good place to ask this What's that really common classical piece that goes Db Eb f Ab Gb Gb Bb Ab Ab... and so on I hear it lots of places and can play it on alto sax (I transposed it) but cannot remember the name.
