gallows ribaldry (suicide) & uspol
we did a good demo of "musical roulette" and kind of feel like there's still hope for our album, which had its tour suspended because of trumpland.

@twovoyagers i kinda think at least one of us would hear 7 semis up, i played it a bunch last night and again this morning (i always loved that song — are any of the verses new? some of them i’ve never heard & though my work is kinda indie electronic now i used to play exclusively folk rock just me and a martin) & i didn’t notice a parallel fifth effect. but then again it’s a rather rich-yet-not-too-wide guitar and i’ve used fifths to build that kind of sound hmmm in fact ...
@twovoyagers the effects version — is it single voice with a clone melodically controlled? it can’t be the light chorus/delay i think i detect on the plucked strings can it, that’s separate innit?
I can definitely make out more of the lyrics on that one.
Noisy environment vs. quiet:
@twovoyagers fuck fuck yes yes to this song, performance(!) & recording. i’m still in pre-demo, so as soon as the “song” is “written down so i don’t forget what i meant” i stop. i’ve got some krk v6’s a bunch of shures & can run my instruments thru an old m-audio interface (also i do tons of sub & modular synthesis so that’s quiet unless i turn on an extra pink oscillator — nobody’s that dumb i know but — i’m! did this before! & the label cut it into vinyl!!! 😂) d’y’know the mics used for Joy!?
@twovoyagers oh yes definitely detected correctly, and good advice! i might also use one of my mics next time. usually i just overproduce lol ( https://nydel.sdf.org/mk.2020.05/meerkat.something-between.demo.mp3 )
