new part of the “Crying Chips Symphony”

Next part in only some days !

Presentation

I’m realising this Symphony with only 4 tracks and sounds in 8 & 16 bits.

For the moment, there are 4 parts of 2 minutes each. Next, it will be time to put everything together, to make the entire creation of 12 minutes (or more, depends on my mood).

Share, Like, Comment !

Watch !

There are the different videos of this symphony, in a playlist. You can listen them one after one, or independentaly. I’ll realize a complete version in some time. :

Kickstarter description

Here is an excerpt of the kisckstarter description (written by Steve – in french) :

Degoreland était un groupe de punk rock underground marseillais dans tous les sens du terme. Nous étions de jeunes musiciens avec une cave et l’envie de jouer. Nous avons acheté nos instruments , appris à jouer et enregistrer ensemble. Cela a duré de 1995 à 1998 d’abord à 4 puis en trio, puis en duo… Jérémy a poursuivi dans l’écriture et le théâtre, Jess fait de la musique électronique, Alain joue peut être encore pour son plaisir personnel, mystère ? J’ai poursuivi l’aventure avec Ecran Total et maintenant Shun & his happy Family.

Lire la suite (…)

Le cd ne verra le jour que grâce à vous, j’ai engagé du temps pour faire le mastering, numérisation des k7, DAT et autres supports d’époque, j’ai également payé un graphiste pour réaliser la pochette et contacté les anciens membres pour participer à l’aventure ! Sans subvention, sans buzz, je n’ai jamais eu de succès commercial mais une vague reconnaissance de la critique musicale indépendante, celle qui va dans les concerts et qui voit les groupes en vrai. Je fais cela pour ceux qui sont restés mes potes et comme témoignage socio historique de la vitalité de la scène underground marseillaise.

a new category on CAM

I’m opening a new section on my website that I’ve called soberly CAM.

Away for a few days, I was immersed in intense reflection when the routing audio and midi in my installation homestudio, and its sound. I am not satisfied with certain aspects, and I wanted to share with you my experience of home-studio because I have some knowledge in computer science, in sound (mixing and mastering) and then I have been very well documented on how to Promote an indie project.

I am in the case of many of us: I’m in an apartment, so with neighbors, and I have to show a lot of creativity to use fully my hardware (some of which are very original), in the best conditions , and for an optimal sound rendering.

The first article in this section tells you how to install “Fender Fuse” on your mac because it’s not a point and Click game ! http://thewetmachine.net/fr/2017/10/17/fender-fuse-sur-mac-os-sierra-troobleshoot/

Text :

tu es si fragile tu tremble tout vacille

tout n’est que combat dans ce monde qui brille

la vie qui t’habille de son manteau de peau

comment ne pas être hostile ne pas tomber de haut

laisser tes oripeaux toutes tes cédilles

revenir à zéro comme un enfant agile

tout est si fragile tout tremble tout vacille

tout n’est que combat dans ce monde qui brille

comme un héros sensible amours de pacotille

dès l’origine se battre pour avancer

et trouver l’équilibre fragile

revenir aux racines respirer et rêver

être un enfant dans ce monde qui brille d’un éclat si futile

revenir aux racines

radioactivité

les fumées de la ville dans la lumière vacillent

continuer dans ces vaines et sublimes vallées

à marcher à marcher

tu es si fragile tout tremble tout vacille

tu es si fragile tu tremble et tout vacille

tout n’est que combat dans ce monde qui brille

comme un enfant fragile ma volonté décline

fatigué de grimper les ultimes collines

tout est si fragile tout tremble tout vacille

tout n’est que combat dans ce monde qui brille

tu es si fragile
