Thnks Roy. I love Genes violin. He sent me a couple tracks, but one was unfortunately corrupted, so I was left with most of one track to mix in the violin. I have just recieved the second track, and I plan on mixing some of those goods in.

If I may ask, when you say interesting production, what does that mean exactly? (I assume that could be good or bad), I would really be interesting in your critiquing. I dont have monitors over here, so a lot of stuff is just mixed by pretty much my home stereo, and my car stereo(a balance between a good sound system, and a bad sound system, if you will...)

Thanks again,
=-Ben.

Thanks Roy.. I checked out a couple of yours too. I really like your production, really digital sounding but dreamy cool, you know?

Capt. Pants, I agree w/ Roy. Love the synth line and violin. Thanks you guys, it's always great to hear new music.

Ben,
'Interesting' means unique in a good way...unique in the way it's built. The elements you used are very nice...the octave unison BGV with your lead vocal is cool...both the acoustic single notes and strummed chords are nice, Gene's violin.....these things made the overall production 'interesting' to me... -Roy

Ahh.. I gotcha Roy. Thats for the listen. I was really interested in your opinion just because im trying to hone out a new sound for myself, so, naturally what you had to say was of importance to me. Thanks a bunch though. I value your opinion immensly. Even if I cant spell immensly right.

Thanks,

Hi there,

Here is some of my stuff I have played, arranged and mixed all bymyself. In the first address, below, are 30 seconds of clips of my nu-metal album (In Turkish). The second address contains English songs (almost full length) and one full version of turkish song from the first address.

Generally, I don't know why, Geocities have problem trying to download mp3 these days. So, I first put the link of songs. If you can't listen the songs at first, please try "save target as" to your PC.

Here are a couple more that I did last year at a friend's house.

I wrote No Matter What on a challenge from a friend to write a country song. The lyrics *were* of that genre I think, but the music came out a little different from my original intentions. It was my first attempt at writing a purely fictional song.

No Matter What

Twice to Me was written in response to my breakup. Again, more self-loathing, etc..... I am currently re-recording this one with some lyric and small musical changes. I hope to nail the vocals a little better this time and I am punching the guitar parts up a bit, adding a guitar solo in place of the organ break.

Twice to Me

Again, tear 'em up guys.... Thanks.

Ben,

I like My Angel quite a bit. Reminds me of 80's stuff....maybe The Cure or U2, but still unique enough to stand on it's own. The music, vocals and production sound good to me.

Hey Joe. Thanks for the listen. I would be lying if I didnt say a lot my stuff is influenced by Depeche Mode, The Church, Oingo Boingo, and some newer dancy music(Clan of Xymox, Diary of Dreams).

I dont know if you've heard any of my other stuff, but im trying a different production style lately. Instead of filling all the gaps, im trying to be more open ended, and have a simpler layout and just make music that really hits me hard, even if it is something so simple.

A few songs that I really love have this formula, and i decided to try it out.
If you look at the song Reptile from "The Church", really quite simple song, but it is so great.

There is a song called "Colorblind" on Diary of Dreams CD, and its mostly just piano and some synths, and then of course a drumline, and i think it is so marvelous. In the case of My Angel, I knew it was pretty much complete once I added Genes violin. It fit that fragile gap that I had, that could only be filled with something equally fragile, but at the same time so powerful. Of course, this is all in my head, how you take it could be completely different, its just the way it played out for me.

Thanks again, I do appreciate it.
=-Ben
