TigerM - TigerMvintage - Jungle Congo
While working as
Secretary / Office Manager / Receptionist and Accountant weekly
at MGCM, his stepbrother's Music School and Music Conservatory,
Tiger was introduced to the Roland Boss DR-5 Rhythm Section...
and... often more than
eight hours a day producing arrangements...
Using the MIDI instruments on Roland's DR-5, in a single month,
Tiger would produce over 250 unique arrangements.” [some call them "beats!" ^^]
THIS track brings back good memories =)
composed on the Roland Boss DR-5 exclusively then recorded
On my second production cassette I produced at 16 in the year 2000;
my older brother [stepbrother biologically] listened and said:
"That's my favorite one." =D
We were listening in his 944 [Porsche that had a Cassette / CD player
combo painted red with leather / soft-seat-interior ] and
he would listen to it saying "rewind it back" during drives XD
[smiles happily* This is not the same one who opened the Conservatory
but his brother two =3 It felt SO good!
(we both were MGCM teen piano teachers later too! =3)
I continued producing with new energy then and today--
that biological brother [three years my senior] is a Rocket Scientist. =3
[Yup. oo Master's in "Aeronautical Engineering" and Pilot. =3]
*Sings happily =3* Anyways!
This is the original "Jungo Congo" which was later re-recorded seven
cassettes later to a debut also free of the "four-four-time" setting
on the DR-5 titled "Retake" summing up songs that received awesome responses. =)
" Second Trial " is the first time I learned manually without instructions
that the Roland Boss could go beyond "four-four" time recordings
and allow "reatime" tempo change and do more "music mechanics"
(Reverb, "sections" and realtime instrument picking for records)
in addition to allowing recording melody and rhythm notes.
I soon learned about "faders" from another producer and that
the DR-5 does not have-- so I simply turned my music down at the end.
" Jungle Congo " is one of my first " beats " (compositions)
to grab the attention of siblings and eventually entertainment critics
as I eventually got 'bold enough-to' "pitch" my recordings as a teen.
(send them to writers / listeners / A&R / company owners)
At this time though (at 16) I simply shared what I did locally.
I hope You enjoy " Jungle Congo " as much as some
and freely present or utilize the recording if so desired
I am mastering volume levels utilizing Adobe for my cassette
recordings from 2000 so they're "DR-5 direct" sounding [kind of =) ^^; ]
instead of 'directly from tape' although these are the original
analog recordings to tape then digital WAV then workstation to CBR (Mp3).
The music is what matters ; the melodies preserved for You to enjoy
Thank You For Listening! =^_^=
