Read On

So, the movie "Read On", which used music from my Arp Log project, premiered in Houston on Friday night. Since I was playing in Beaumont that night, I wasn't able to be there for the movie, but several folks told me the soundtrack rocked. That's cool to hear.

Here are the remaining 8 tracks I provided for scenes in the movie.

01: Marimba Roll, Song 7 (mp3, 1.5MB)
01: Marimba Roll, Song 8 (mp3, 1.2MB)
01: Marimba Roll, Song 9 (mp3, 1.9MB)
01: Marimba Roll, Song 10 (mp3, 2.3MB)
01: Marimba Roll, Song 11 (mp3, 2.1MB)
01: Marimba Roll, Song 12 (mp3, 2MB)
01: Marimba Roll, Song 13 (mp3, 1.2MB)
01: Marimba Roll, Song 14 (mp3, 1.3MB)

I think I've finally said all I'm going to say with the Marimba Roll patch, so next up is patch #2 ... the "Trumpet & French Horn" patch. (By the way, I noticed my google ads on the blog showing lots of ads for French Horns ... heh. Stupid google. Hey google! This is a blog about electronic music!)

If you have any particular favorites from this patch, leave them in the comments. I'll include the most liked ones in my final album (which I'm now thinking will be a culmination of all 100 patches in a single album). My favorite so far is #3, by a wide margin. #12 also has a nice desolate vibe to it. Anybody else?

I'm going to have to grab the rest of these at home, and I'll let you know what my favorites are. Here's a funny idea - you can make a regular album with the "best" tracks, and then an MP3 CD with all the tracks on as a companion album. That's a lot of mastering though!

I've attempted to put my favorites in order of liking - the first one listed being the one I like the most:
3 (my friend Terry said he liked this one best)

Damn. Prolific is right. I also like his idea of putting ALL of the tracks on a companion album. I'm going to have to spend some time with all of these. But so far #3 is my fav.

OK, I've spent some serioius time with all 14 tracks. #3 isn't even in my top 5. I really dig the farty noise thing. but I think the best tracks are the ones with actual melody. I like the sound in the intro to #10, the only reason it's not in my top 5 is because the noise you chose to play the melody gets on my nerves after about 10 seconds.

Top 5:
4, 13, 11, 12, 7

Of course, those could all change in about five minutes...Stupid driving in my car listening to this shit all day.

#3 sounds like you and Claypool produced it together.

OK, it seems we've got a numbering problem. The one I'm referring to as #3 is actually #4, and vice versa. I don't know how they got in there backwards. In any event, I'm going to name them all and then ask people for preferences again. Sorry about that.

Love the MP3 CD idea, by the way.

Woohoo!!! #4 wins. It's in geekette's top 5. It's my #1 and Ian's #1. Rad. Ok, on to the next patch, and make it snappy. :)
