The Clock is Ticking

I am way out of my comfort zone on this one.

BiaB style = Enya Soft Ev 16 Techno Orchestra
Tempo = 75 BPM

I deleted the bass, drum, and guitar tracks
Piano - Karanyi - Minipool
Strings - Karanyi - Wavesynth
Me - spoken word, guitar, and via my MIDI keyboard the last sound

Let me know what you think.

The Clock is ticking

Inflation is high

Russia invades Ukraine

There is a major food shortage

China is testing the western world

Companies are laying off a lot of people

North Korea is testing long-range rockets

Immigrants are invading free countries

Crime is running rampant

Cattle and chickens are dying unexpectedly

The world is a mess

The Clock is ticking


My goal this weekend is to move just enough each day so that no one pokes me to see if I'm dead or not.

Mario,

This is excellent. A big ominous sound (including the parting shot).

Great spoken vocal and very cool production.

Love the overall "Twilight Zone" vibe this has.

Thanx Bob. I was going for a "Twilight Zone" feel on this one. I'm glad that you liked it.

Inflation isn't the only high in this. Man, how do you consistently come up with such compelling sounds, Mario. A very creative mind! I like the clicking clock reminding us that time is of the essence. I wrote my comment on SC just before the bomb went off. Too late.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Spooky and scary, you always surprise with ideas. Very nice cinematic mood, the ticking between spoken words is very effective. I like also the use of the guitar. This reminds me of a beetle living here in Finland, its name means "clock of death", the ticking is made by the male striking its head against the surface of the wood, in your song it is clearly the humankind that is striking its head to create the sound.

Weird but interesting, you create a cool cinematic atmosphere.
I would have preferred a less edited voice, more like a TV reporter, but I also like it the way it is now.

I like to think that I have a very creative mind but my wife keeps telling me my mind is a half a bubble off! Thanx for listening and commenting.

PS - I said cut the red wire not the blue one. That is why the bomb went off grin

Thanx Janne for these very nice comments. Yes it is a spooky and scary world we are currently living in. Lets pray for a safe peaceful outcome.

Thanx so much. I tried the voice sans effects but I just didn't think if fit that voice well. Once I found this vocoder voice it sounded much better to me. YMMV

Just add the line "All according to the plan" and you'll really have a Twilight Zone song. wink

Vocoders are cool! Interesting song.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Mario,

Go ahead and relax-you are in a comfortable place as far as pulling off a work like this! The message is certainly an uncomfortable thing but true all the way! You have such a great ability to create these surreal soundscapes!

Thanks, TB

Mario ...

Sounds to me as though you were very comfortable with this. Social commentary in an interesting, albeit a bit weird, dimension. And what a way to take it out! Had my attention all the way.
