Friends Of Frost* / The Environmentalists
« on: January 29, 2013, 12:59:02 PM »
Hello all! It's been a while since I last visited but I assure you I still check up on you from time to time.

Anyhoodlings, I've been busy working on some tracks with a good friend of mine and would like to share them with you guys (Knowing this is such a creative and supportive environment)

So we called ourselves "The Environmentalists", disregarding many people's rules of no "The's".

So here are some rough tracks that we've started panning out, you'll quickly pick up the style.

We also plan to release songs as they come to us, a move that I like when other bands do it so we'll see how it goes eh?  :lol:

Announcements / Dec should know
« on: March 03, 2012, 04:33:57 PM »
Just been watching the TDL Frost report where Jem trundles along to Mr. Burkes house.

Much to my surprise I instantly recognised the landscape outside his window (I won't give the game away :P) as I've recently tested the water in that there pond for part of my Geography degree.

Just thought Dec should know that the system is doing it's job nicely ;)



Any other prog wizard related anecdotes?  :lol:

Just been following Jem's links of nicey, can't say I got into all of them but BFF definitely struck a (dis)chord with me.

Anyone else enjoy them? I thought bop was excellent.

Gear Corner / NAMM 2012

You weren't there man.

And neither were I  :D

I'm just traversing through Music Radar's coverage of the event. Will have to keep my eye on the Nord Drum that's been announced. I have hopes that because it is Nord it'll be capable but so far it hasn't wowed me  :cry:

Anyone else seen anything they like?

Any Other Business / Can we get a forum theme tune?

THE CODEORGAN ANALYSES THE *BODY* CONTENT OF ANY WEB PAGE AND TRANSLATES THAT CONTENT INTO MUSIC. THE CODEORGAN USES A COMPLEX ALGORITHM TO DEFINE THE KEY, SYNTH STYLE AND DRUM PATTERN MOST APPROPRIATE TO THE PAGE CONTENT.

FIRSTLY, THE CODEORGAN SCANS THE PAGE CONTENTS AND REMOVES ALL
CHARACTERS NOT FOUND IN THE MUSICAL SCALE (A TO G), AND THEN ANALYSES THE REMAINING CHARACTERS TO FIND THE MOST COMMONLY USED 'NOTE'. IF THIS IS AN EVEN NUMBER THE PAGE IS TRANSLATED IN TO THE MAJOR PENTATONIC SCALE OF THAT PARTICULAR NOTE, IT BECOMES MINOR IF THERE IS AN UNEVEN NUMBER.

SECONDLY, THE CODEORGAN DEFINES WHICH SYNTHESIZER TO USE. THIS IS
BASED UPON THE TOTAL NUMBER CHARACTERS USED ON THE WEBPAGE THERE ARE CURRENTLY 10 SYNTHESIZER EFFECTS AND THE ONE CHOSEN IS PICKED BASED UPON THE PERCENTAGE OF CONTENT.

LASTLY, THE CODEORGAN SELECTS A DRUM LOOP BASED UPON THE RATIO OF CHARACTERS ON THE PAGE VERSUS THE NUMBER OF CHARACTERS THAT ARE ACTUALLY MUSICAL NOTES THERE ARE CURRENTLY 10 DIFFERENT DRUM LOOPS TO PICK FROM.

GO AND MAKE BEAUTIFUL MUSIC TOGETHER.

THE CODEORGAN PEOPLE

Any Other Business / Musical Cock-Ups
« on: August 03, 2011, 12:09:58 PM »
While watching Spock's Beard at High voltage, I noticed something.

Cocking up on stage is great fun.

Seriously, even though the Beard were hitting some real bum notes, dropping sticks, and mis-fingering licks I still had a brilliant time and the cheeky winks and smiles to each other are so much more memorable for it.

I guess it just reminds us that even really talented musicians are still human.

Anyone else have some great experiences of onstage blunders (not him) either of your own band or others?

Friends Of Frost* / Home brewed Electronica

Hello Frosties, thought I'd share with you some demos that I hope to one day (never) get recorded into proper nice ambient thingy songs.

Just instrumentals called Pennies and Hedgehogs.

There's also one called Elwood party time. That was something I wrote for rabbit behavioural research purposes (Not really).

Other Bands / On the backs of angels
« on: June 29, 2011, 04:31:37 PM »
"On the Backs of Angels" from the album "A Dramatic Turn of Events"

http://youtu.be/oasnbzEMV08

Next single to be "Humping the Cathartic Moose"

Personally thought it was quite good. Started to realise my music taste is less geared towards a million notes per second though.

Gear Corner / Your favourite sounds/patches/tones/gear of artists
« on: April 03, 2011, 09:04:53 PM »
So Sunday evening (night?) conversation time:
Whats your favourite sounds/patches/tones/gear of your favourite artists/bands?

I quite love Neal Morse's string/synth patch sound that you can hear 15 seconds into lay down your life

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cGqgrDAoJ4s

Is that based on a mellotron or something?  :D  I know he uses it a lot.
Gav Harrisons snare sound is another contender.

Any thoughts?

Gear Corner / Midi Keyboard for sale (is this thread illegal?)
« on: February 27, 2011, 06:04:21 PM »
'Ello you budding (budget) keyboardists/programmers/widdlers out there.

Fancy M-audio oxygen 49 key for sale. Great if you're looking to get into the world of keyboarding (plenty of free softsynths online) Happy to give priority to fellow forumers who will make sure she gets a nice home.

Of course it might be awkward if we all end up in the same room  :|

Ask Frost* / Right are you ready for this?
« on: December 02, 2010, 03:05:10 PM »
Right. See if you can explain this one.

In many Frost* songs theres a little section of notes that don't seem to fit musically.  (An example would be the 2:50 and 4:42 mark in the Snowman/Gabriel mashup. I know theres others out there, I just can't remember where :P)

Are these actual scales of some sort? Are there more out there? I'd love to know...

I have pretty low knowledge of scales, modes etc go easy  :oops:
