My old man passed away very recently. I made this song for him some months back, as a dirge. I live abroad, and whenever I fly back home I make music using cheap equipment and instruments. Well anyways, he liked the song, and he knew what it was for, since at that time he was already very ill and on oxygen. I've been having a rough time processing his death, we were close. Just thought I'd make a thread here to share the song I made in his honor. I've frequented this community for many years, and I hope I don't rustle any feathers with the random thread sharing a single song.

It's called Saying Goodbye in A Minor


Bye, Dad.

reminds me of Philip Glass, especially Prophecies. which is funny, because it was my dad who introduced me to his music through the movie Koyaanisqatsi.
it was movie night and he randomly picked it out. he ended up haaating it, but I loved it.
thanks papa. I miss you.

tell us more about your dad, OP. how he died, how he lived.

He died of a 12cm round cancerous growth which developed in one of his lungs. He went peacefully in his sleep, without any pain, or choking, or fear. I thank a personal higher power that I believe in for this.

He was a soldier in the Vietnam war, and he was stationed for the most part in the central highlands, a place my uncle (stationed elsewhere) referred to often as "the shit." Dad told me many war stories over the course of my life. Most of them I don't want to share publicly.

He was a private man, having no close friends at the end of his life. He enjoyed urban gardening and growing, making high-yields of tomatoes, eggplant, squash, onion, garlic, various chili peppers, along with some herbs. Eventually, towards the end of his life, he invested in a temperature-controlled pro-lighting indoor closet grow area, and brought three lovely ladies to maturity and harvest.

He was also very passionate about caring for miniature trees. Over the course of his life he developed his own style that was quite different than traditional Eastern bonsai. My favorite of his miniature trees was a plum tree he had for many years. Since my early adolescence and up until my last visit, he kept that old plum tree healthy, happy, tiny, and extremely pleasing to the eye.

In his youth, he was a dog person, until a neighbor poisoned his dog "Whiskey". That was long before I was born. I will always remember him a cat person. Teaching them cute little tricks that would impress my eventual wife, etc.

He was mechanically-oriented, (worked the motor pool at base camp when not on patrol) and a serious tinkerer. Always was. When I was a boy he taught me how to reverse polarity of a servo by spinning it in reverse, enough to light up an LED. He also helped me create a secret desk alarm out of soldering a switch to a fire alarm and affixing it to the inside of a sliding desk drawer when I was a boy.

When I was a young boy, he had a severe alcohol problem, and my mother eventually divorced him, but as it played out over the years the two would never fully part. It was a love/hate relationship to the end between them, but the last words he muttered to my mother was a faint "I love you." The next morning he was gone.

In-Ear Monitors for performing live. Thoughts?

Alright, I know there's at least some who play live music here regularly. Anyone ever used in-ear monitors?

My band's had like five gigs in a row recently where the on-stage sound has been terrible, and we're thinking IEMs might be a potential solution. From my research I think they might solve some problems but not all. Anyone have any opinions on them?

I'm not sure about you live bands, but as a DJ, having a decent set of booth monitors is wonderful. IEMs are great for cueing in place of headphones. That's my 2 cents.

I don't actually play live but just ask them if you can set it up

I've seen plenty of bands fuck with the system themselves

Not just wonderful, almost essential I would say.

I kind of enjoyed the idea of this album tbh, but I the only track I keep going back to is Money Machine because it's catchy. I like how the end result is just pop that's too noisy, but given the history of music that already exists, it doesn't remain super interesting for a long time. I'd like to see them do more with this sound.

Just wanted to throw that out there, I have no recs for you, OP. Sorry.

i found this while listening to youtube recommendations, holy shit it's the best shit i've heard in a long time
if you're a fan of old schoolish death metal that sounds like it came from a cold and dark basement (even though those new wave OSDM bands are like mushrooms during rain these days) then give it a try

So for the last 5 months now me and some musician friends have been getting super baked and jamming every Friday after school. We've gotten pretty good, so we decided to start streaming our jams on Twitch!

Tonight is our first stream! Check out our channel "Bad Neighbor Productions" between 8 and 11pm PST. You're gonna hear some weird shit.

Lol the fans complained about the studio album so they made their own from the live selections they prefer.

This guy became a one man band as a result of a freak encounter with a random stranger on acid at a campout giving him his name.
The story is only getting weirder, he probably met the devil

Playing a few local bars in the next few weeks and months and a cafe tomorrow night. The cafe is cover-oriented sort of like American Idol. Since everybody else there does covers, we're gonna do Dynamite Hack Boyz in the Hood. and Born in the 50s by the police. Where are you guys gigging? Funny gig stories?

Used to begrudgingly help run a DIY venue out of our rental house in Chicago. We stopped booking ourselves after things got rolling because dealing with 200+ people in your living space is a full time nightmare. Usually the doorman had to sell merch as well, but one night none of the bands had any. I volunteered so I could just sit on my ass and get drunk/high. For those unfamiliar with such events, there's usually a small $1-5 "suggested donation" required to get in. The theory is to con people out of money without technically running a business. I made a bunch of jalapeno corn bread earlier in the afternoon and sold it for $1 a slice instead. Made about $50, everyone got to see the show for free, and my roommates never let me be the doorman again.

The end.

We should start a band.
