A one-man band project. Instrumental meanderings in Post-Rock vein (think of GYBE or MONO).

Here we have a track entitled Park Luny

Enjoy!!! Feedbacks are welcome!

Shocked!

Wow Prog-jester! This is a wonderful song, no kidding! I have high hopes for you. Clap

I like the childish mood at first and the reggae-ish rhythm guitar shortly after. The rest of the song (crescendos and all) is excellent.

Got anymore great tunes to share?

Beautiful!!ClapClapClap

The middle part a little bit too protracted, maybe, but hey, who am I to judge? Very, very enjoyable!

Mark me in for the beginning of the queue of buyers when the CD will finally see the light of the day.

Well, taking into consideration, that it was composed mostly during the recording session (except for this catchy theme for two guitars)... Well, yes, the crescendo parts may seem a bit too short, while quiet ones are more frequent, but I wish you'd only know what is the pleasure to play it by yourself

A new track is ready - Muzikoy Osennih Dereviev (edit version)(By the Music of Autumn Trees). Comments are required!!!

Plus I skipped thru all recorded tracks (5) and decided to leave only 3 for the album (it makes it 47 minutes long).I'll upload a demo of an unreleased track soon. And an extract from the third track of the album.

Enjoy !!!

Hi there Prog-jester!

Wow you have some very creative stuff here.  I guess I'll start at the beginning.

'Park Luny' - I think you really captured the song with that title (or the title with the song?  I guess it depends on which one came first!).  The way the song meanders from one theme into another is both childlike and looney-like.  With the scratching and out-of-tune noises, you've superimposed a touch of madness on otherwise peaceful sounds, and I think it works very well.  The ethereal guitar brings in some very intense emotions - I heard glee and desperation, personally, which is odd since those things usually don't mix.  I love the happy but out-of-tune ending!  I do have one negative comment - the scratching noises are very loud compared to the other sounds, and I found I had to turn the volume down quite a bit during those parts or it hurt my ears (which means I couldn't clearly hear your other sounds behind the scratching, either).  I may just have sensitive ears, or maybe I had the volume up too high in the first place - your call.

'Muzikoy...': Lovely, and reminiscent of music from the movie 'Blade Runner' (which I love).  I can see a replicant dying in the rain to this music...  I noticed you're using a similar quick-strum ambient guitar in this song as you did in 'Park Luny'.  I think it is more effective on this track, with the solo guitar over it.  When the song changes gear to a more mellow landscape, it successfully gives the listener (well, at least me) a necessary chance to recover from the constant guitar strumming that preceeded it - otherwise I think the fuzzy effects in the last 1/3 of the song would have been too much.  As it is, I think they're in just the right spot.  I like that you blended effects from the first 1/3 of the song into parts near the end.  I wasn't crazy about the last several seconds of the song where the drums take over, though.

The part of 'The Fried Bull's Blues' that you have up is amazing, definately my favorite of the three.   I love the subtle effects, and how the theme grows and changes slightly throughout the whole song.  For some reason the combination of sounds you have there at several points reminded me of a Gregorian Chant, even though I'm pretty sure there was no chanting in there.  Bringing in the heavy guitars toward the end really added an urgent element that enhanced the song as a whole, but especially the softer ending.  Great job!

I hope you don't mind reading long posts... I like to give useful feedback rather than just tell you whether I liked something or not. :)

THANKS, STARSONGAGELESS !!!

Wow, one of the most detail and sane analysis I ever faced !!!


On noises in "Park Luny" - I had and still do an opportunity to make these noises less hurting, but I don't want to I like the way they ruin the sleepy mood...

On "Muzikoy..." - I adore last 6 minutes of the song (well, I like it as a whole too. but... you know...), and especially the culmination after the quiet part !!!

On "Bluz..." - this is the sanest part, taken from there Originally it begins with 3 minutes of horror-movie-like deep noises, then this part follows and at last we have 10 minutes of really BLUESy tune (in 6/8) - but as if played by CAN jamming with Doom-Metal band !!!



Thank you all for feedbacks - I'll post some unreleased demos soon, not that qualified, but less sane Hope you'll enjoy them !!!

Hey there Prog-jester,

No problem!  I love listening to new music, and I am very interested in new progressive especially.

Hehe yep the scratches certainly do disturb the sleepiness. :)  If that's you're intention, well-done, it is definitely effective!

I'm liking this new version of Muzikoy, although it for some reason doesn't sound like the same song to me.  I don't hear the Blade-Runner-like effect anymore, did I follow the wrong link?  There was no sudden drumming at the end either.  I checked the 'Blues' link and it's definitely the same song I heard before.  Hehe I'm confused. :)

Anyway, I'll be here waiting for updates. :)  And updating my own band's stuff, too, slowly but surely.

Park Luny  Nice one.
The start is same time very cheerful and twisted. Creates litlle bit insane feeling.
Whem The drums starts the feeling changes to more relax and mellow Which is very nice. This remainds me a bit of Mogway: happy songs for happy people-album.
So yes very nice work Clap.
