Highly Suspect

Uploaded .

I swore that I would NEVER upload this. Was having a bad day trying to loop “nice” acoustic guitar sounds and got frustrated so grabbed my Taylor and plugged it into a cheesy Effects box and straight into the looper. Started twiddling knobs and creating these wacky loops. Afterwords as I was going though them it occurred to me that perhaps I could assemble this mess into something like music. Still not sure I succeeded!!

Nah man, this is great! So ethereal and unreal, but you can hear the honest, concrete, real guitar underneath all of it. Really cool combination!

Kirk, I got lost in my kitchen, making a cup of tea when I heard this. Came to, slow dance moving across the floor, singing lyrics pulled right out of nowhere. I hope to have the time to dance to it more

But you see, its experiments like this that are so flipping deadly and fun to listen to. More I say, more. This is like painting with sound, you are making pictures in my brain with this one. Very worthy experiment.

Guest said

might-e-fine! Do you have any other promises like this you can break? If so you should. Don't limit yourself Kirk.

Never say never! A well executed loop piece. C'mon Bethan, give it another try!

Based on the few comments I read, the reason this is so good is because it touches something way down deep inside the listener. Loved it!

That was pretty freakin' sweet Kirk! Breezy and spooky at the same time. Far out!

I'm glad you broke your promise to yourself. Eerie, trance-like awesomeness. I think you may have invented a new style of music... :D

It's certainly usable - in an intro or outro to a more conventional track perhaps? :)

Guest said

This sound is wild and should be set FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! Loving the breathy, melodic echoes - great rhythm also.

Guest said

Well, I wasn't expecting these sounds from you SFS, kind of unsettling.
