Fifth Element

We’ve got some horns and strings, we’ve got some tingly metal vibraphones, we’ve got some metal percussion (not drums), and we’ve got Darin from work talking about streaming data because his audio file was just sitting right there on my desktop so i dropped it into logic and sampled.

Equal parts experimental contemporary classical Nick Russo music, the Ferrix-based marching band on Rix Road, and Darin.

Looking for feedback on

i love your use of vocal samples here, you created a really unique vibe with this piece!

i would love to hear an extended version of this that drops into full band halfway through. gr34t jerb!

yeah, for some reason, i feel like this needs 3 drummers on it. not playing complex stuff, but just layering things live

Very “Different Trains” by Steve Reich, and I’m here for it. Love what those vibraphones are bringing. Nice balance between the pensive orchestra and the impatient-sounding vocal sample. This one’s a big win for me.

thank you, thank you. yeah, the Kronos Quartet Steve Reich Different Trains recording was basically the vibe. However, the “different ways” “different trains” similarity is just a really cool coincidence.
