[sharing is fun] A selection of musics by me.

Aug 30 2009 | 5:24 pm

I’m terribly self-conscious about the music I make, but I’m finally getting to a point that I feel like I can share it without worrying too much. I’ve just uploaded several demo tracks to my personal google site, and I would like you guys to check it out and perhaps provide some feedback. They’re mostly rough drafts, and riddled with timing flaws or other major goofs, and generally mastered poorly. I’ve never really taken the recording part seriously though, most of this has never been heard by anyone but me.

I’m beta testing Record right now, and it’s everything I’ve ever wanted Reason to be, plus much, much more. My first track made in Record is also what I would consider my first major triumph in mastering. If anyone with any experience with audio engineering wants to critique the sound, I’d love to hear your comments (it’s the first one on the site). You can bet that over the next few months I’ll be re-visiting all of my reason files (and even Max-based tracks) in Record to tighten them up.

Please be gentle.

Hey Brysn, thanks for sharing your music. I know it can be
very hard sharing your creations with others. Making music
is a very personal process, our natural instinct is to protect it.

I really like your music. My favorites are Beatitude and Digiwave.
Really nice meditative ambient textures. Your equing overall
sounds really good. Sounds like there might be some distortion
happening on parts of Breathe in/Breathe out, not sure if this is
intended. Keep up the good work and keep sharing.

Thanks for the kind words, fellow Austinite. Indeed, there is a tiny amount of unwanted distortion on Breathe In, but I feel like it’s minor enough that I haven’t bothered to fix it since first recording it. I’ll fix that if I ever get around to filling in the gap and completing the EP.

As per your suggestion to keep sharing, I’ve just uploaded two more demos from my collection of .rns files that I thought were particularly interesting… I think I was listening to too much Matmos when I made the second one though.

also, I never thought I’d ever hear Beatitude described as meditative or ambient Razz. It’s really the most energetic track I’ve ever taken seriously, almost everything else I make pales in comparison to the sheer volume in that track (which is kinda the idea).
