I've showed this track to a bunch of people because it has such a great groove. I've asked drummers to count this out, and the large majority of them are flabbergasted at the timing and can't count it out! It's hilarious!
It's just overall a great track. Mixing, composition. Short stops on the piano. Every voicing was so fitting for the song.
It makes me visualize an artist who begins drawing with pencil and paper, and as they are drawing the characters begin to come to life and jump off of the page and interact with the world around them before falling back into place on the page in a finished piece as the composition comes to a close. When a track does that, it becomes a favorite!
Hey man, I'm really glad you finally decided to review this track, I'm really happy you've loved it that much. :)
I just happen to REALLY love rhythmic counterpoint, and I grew up in a crowd that had similar interests, so over the years I've developed a certain ear for it. I'm glad your friends all find it interesting, it shows that I've hit a certain level.
Again thanks for this, and I promise I've got similar stuff in the works, I just have to find the time and energy for it.
Until then, thanks for your interest in what I do, and I'll keep you in the know as it happens. :)
Great composition, great musicians...there's probably nothing I could say others haven't said before.
Mind-blowing, unadulterated awesomeness.
Coming from you, I take that as the greatest of compliments!
Very glad you enjoyed, thanks for the comment!
- NGADM Round 1 Review -
Okay, so I've spent some time listening to each individual instrument for a while now. When I heard it for the first time, it sounded like quite the mess, with some hardly coherent parts. However, as I continued to listen, and then listened again, and then again, I know I at least won't tire of this song, not for a long while. It's got a great amount of variety, and several parts that sound very experimental, but most of them end up working very well. The recording is excellent, and instrument choice even more so. The style of your composition is very unique; there is so much I like.
There are many cool parts to this song, as well as some very solid parts to counteract the not-so-solid, such as a few rhythm issues. One not very impressive thing about your song, however, is it's ending. After hearing over eight minutess of coolness, it sounded rather...lame, yes. Your title is probably the most accurate title ever - Supercollide, indeed.
absolutely incredible! even though I could never do jazz to save my life, I still love listening to it. my band directors from my high school days would totally geek out to this track. excellent work!
I don't listen to Jazz often, but when I do, I listen to Supercollide. Stay Jazzy, my friends! ;)
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
