These pictures are getting more and more random. Totally uninspired. 🥴

I’m going for a lawnmower solo. 
I was gonna try a bass solo, but no one wants to hear one of those!

I may have done a bangin' choon... No jazz, no dissonance, just big beats!

You must have chainsaw to sample in there somewhere :D

Here is my contribution to the March 2020 Basschat Composition Challenge, inspired by a picture chosen by the previous winner: SH73..!
I can't claim composition of the piece, of course ('The Swan', Saint-Saens, from Le Carnaval Des Animaux...); this is more an exercise in arranging (or rather, how not to..!). All too often, I'm as guilty as the next in thinking 'What if I added such'n'such..? All too often, there's an inrush of dopamine, and so on to the next one, rinse and repeat. The end result turns out to be a total mess (in my case, pretty much every time, although there are some folks that get away with it...). Just like the 'Peter Principle', however, I don't go back, I 'promote' the sludge up to the next level, and add a bit of t***-polishing 'mastering', to roll it in glitter. This, then, is a warning against over-production. Less is More.
A fine Kontakt Viola, joined by equally fine Kontakt Emotional Pianos become progressively overwhelmed by successive 'doubling' from Kontakt Strawberry, then LPC, guitars, themselves 'augmented' with XXL helpings of Amplitude FX. A completely redundant Superior 2 drum track accentuates the farce; the whole has been concocted with Reaper, of course.
Apologies to sensitive souls; thanks for listening, if you already have; if you're about to, enjoy.

Bravo Douglas !!

Despite having the ageing ears of a 12 bar rocker, I really enjoyed listening to that...

Cheers..! I realised that some of the panning was a bit squiffy, so I've uploaded a corrected file since. Nowt too radical; it's still good..! ;)

Ok a silly one from me,

I was holding out for a triangle solo from @Teebs but I didn't really have the time to offer him to enable him to zone in on  the direction I was offering 

So I did it myself in the end................... as you will probably tell

Carry on with the 'quickies'; that's a delightful listen (except for the 'disturbance'; bloomin' neighbours, eh..? Who'd have 'em ..? ;) ).

Here is  my contribution

All instruments, vocals and sounds (apart from Ez Drummer ) played , recorded etc by me. The power tool sounds and other effects recorded with my phone then converted to wav etc. Hope not too noisey.

A jarring, echo-laden noisefest featuring semi-acoustic saz, oud, bass, sampled drums, sampled sound effects and a real-life ice cream van. Enjoy/tolerate.

Entry into this months basschat comp, inspired by the picture for this month.
Fender squire guitars and t'bird bass (through various guit rig5 settings) and vocals, all me. Incidental sounds from "freesounds", and acknowledged. Ez does drums.

 Be warned !! No amount of time in isolation can make up for a lack of talent !!
