    Water into wine is terrific. Did you play all of the parts?

    Not my thing, but very well done!

  5. Thank you very much :) yes, I play them all, it's actually a live recording using a loop pedal. I was hoping that would be more apparent, do you think I should do some more camera angles or something to show the process better? How could I make it obvious to you/the viewer? Thanks for taking the time to listen!
  6. Thank you!
  7. Thank you, that is very kind and encouraging! :)

    First thing that comes to mind for me would be a photos of you playing the instruments and then place them either in a line up of some type, or at or on the instrument and pan around to each of them so that it shows you doing each instrument. :thumbsup:

    I enjoyed both tracks very much.....
    I also thought that it was pretty apparent that you were using a looper.....

    All's good.....:thumbsup:

    Great stuff. They evolve in a really interesting way (especially the first), and each part kept me interested in where it was going. I think you have some great bass style happening too... it inspired me to think a little more outside the box in my own writing.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Who needs bands and all that trouble anyways?
    I am greatly impressed.
    I wouldn't be a fan of the rap-style vocal on 'The Pocket', but the groove you've got going on there is awesome.
    'Water Into Wine''s keyboard 'washy' sound (from 20 seconds in) I find a bit annoying, but overall again I really enjoyed the listen.
    I could listen to that bass groove all day long!
    Excellent production overall...and the bass tone is unbelievably good.

    I truly loved watching the tunes evolve, and it did seem very obvious to me it was all you.
    Maybe you could have the camera pan down to the loop pedal at the end of The Pocket as you wind things down or have a little insert shot of it as you add each layer, but I really don't think it's needed.

  14. Thank you, I like that pan idea, maybe not for the looping stages but for winding between them could be cool!

    'Who need bands and all that trouble anyway?' - Haha that was the inspiration for sure :)

    I think I know what you mean with that synth bit, there's a high mid frequency spike in there that's not necessary, it really just needed the lower and airy tones - I'll have a tweak with that.

    Thanks for you feedback and for listening :)
