What's this? Streaming video fun? [Apr. 22nd, 2007|08:35 pm]

My band! We have a video! Huzzah!

Right, so...you'll have to forgive the sound quality. It was shot in a very loud, very enclosed room. If anyone can edit this to make it better, feel free to do so and send me a copy of the finished result?

the spangle maker: the romantic dysthymia [Mar. 30th, 2007|11:58 am]
Serious Musicians!

djproject
[mood |busy]

greetings one and all,

my name is derek power or djproject.

my father noticed when i was really young, i had a strong attraction to music. this attraction only increased in depth as the years continued. i've involved in nearly every aspect of music: composing (since about eight, although i really became intense with it when i entered william and mary and only then it was very personal), performing (singing since seven, cello since eleven), producing (since william and mary, although i've been training my ear and my head since seven), promoting (whilst a dj at wcwm). now, although i "work sixteen hours" and only get "another day older and deeper in debt", my aspiration is still music. with my own personal studio coupled with knowledge and desire, i'm trying to make that dream a reality.

i have a band called the spangle maker. it consists of myself (multi-instrumentalist), natalie garland (vocalist) and andrew thompson (multi-instrumentalist). we just completed our first recording, an ep entitled the romantic dysthymia.

for the moment, it's available as a somewhat low-quality mp3 on archive.org. i anticipate a physical release but i'm not sure when that would be. you can listen and download it and yes even share it (albeit maintain and respect license conditions). the address is http://www.archive.org/details/TSM_001/

we also have a blog and you can read feed here: thespanglemaker

let me know what you all think. i look forward to discussing with you more about this (hence being somewhat vague).

New Lyrics: The Secret [Jan. 22nd, 2007|01:53 am]
Serious Musicians!

finding_bliss

THis just came flooding in to my head afer I got off the phone with Corrie. I have melody and everything. Of course who knows if anything will ever come of it but I hope so this one feels like it needs to be writen. 

It's called The Secret

I’ve got a secret

That I will never share

There is a reason

For my empty stare

 

They never notice

They only see me smile

But that’s just how I want it for now

 

Maybe if I opened up and shared what’s on my heart

Maybe if I talked about my pain it’d be a start

Maybe if I told someone

Why my whole world’s falling a part,,,,,

 

But I’m not ever gonna tell anybody

I’m not ever gonna say a word

I’m just gonna keep a hold of my secret

it won’t be heard

 

I’ve got some big plans

That I’ve been working on

I’ve got purpose

It won’t take too long

 

I’ve got a promise

That I intend to keep

I’ve got a date with destiny

 

Maybe I should think this out at least a little more

Maybe I should call someone cause that’s what families for

Maybe I’ll just wait to do this and just pick up the phone

But I don’t think anyone’s at home,,,,,,,,,,

 

So I’m not ever gonna tell anybody

I’m not ever gonna say a word

I’m just gonna keep a hold of my secret

It won’t be heard

 

Maybe I’ll just pray to God so he might bring me peace

Maybe I’ll just read some words and then I’ll feel release

Maybe I’ll just lay her in my bathtub all alone

Maybe I should check to see if anyone has phoned

Maybe I’ll just close my eyes and take a deeper breath

Maybe I’ll just teach someone a lesson with my death

Maybe I’ll just rest my chin against my loaded gun,,,,,,,

 

And I won’t ever have to tell anybody

There be no need to say a single word

I’m not ever gonna have to share my secret

I’ll still be ,,,,,, heard

Band schedule for January - February [Jan. 9th, 2007|08:45 pm]
Serious Musicians!
reizar
Just cause I know somebody's going to be like, "O UR IN A BAND WHENS UR NEXT SHOW?" And I'm going to have to maul whoever it was, for not paying attention.

This IS subject to change, so don't hold me to it.

Also: If you don't bring money to get in, you won't get in. I don't know the prices, but assume it's between $5 and $10. Bring extra for food and drink. Also, I think these are all "all ages" gigs, but I'd call ahead of time and find out if I were you.

Saturday, 13 January: THE LOT, Albany, GA, 8PM

Friday, 20 January: THE LION'S CLUB, Blackshear, GA, 6PM

PIZZA DELIVERANCE TOUR
Friday, 26 January: THE LOT, Albany, GA, 8:30PM
Saturday, 27 January: THE LAMPLIGHTER PUB, Tifton, GA, 8:30PM
Sunday, 28 January: BIG DADDY'S, Tallahassee, FL, 8:30PM

METAL BLADE TOUR
Thursday, 8 February: THE LAMPLIGHTER PUB, Tifton, GA, 8:30PM

Monday, 19 February: THE LAMPLIGHTER PUB, Tifton, GA, 8:30PM

I'll probably update this as it goes along, cause I'm sure we'll get something else as we go.

another set of lyrics. i am currently working on the music.

The Queen of Hearts

A ghost of a hidden past
Creeps beside him once again
And magnificent satisfaction
Will be justified in the end
As he wandered through the wasteland
No direction, no way home
Desperately scuttled forward
To be sacrificed at the throne

She stands at the edge of reason
Affect in the palm of her hand
And what she does to us all,
nobody quite understands
a cool silent seduction
tells what you can’t do and what you can
For the queen of hearts knows not
The madness of man

From the mountains in the clouds
Her voice resonates through the dawn
And he tries his greatest
but doesn’t know if he can hold on
as a thousand soldiers move
with compliance and sabers drawn
all searching for the answer
to the life of a vagabond

She stands at the edge of reason
Affect in the palm of her hand
And what she does to us all,
nobody quite understands
a cool silent seduction
tells what you can’t do and what you can
For the queen of hearts knows not
The madness of man

In the valley far below
He washes up upon the shore
To find the drawing power
Once forgotten, but no more
She laughs at his misfortune
And holds a response he craves dear
And the queen of hearts just smiles
And feeds on his greatest fear

She stands at the edge of reason
Affect in the palm of her hand
And what she does to us all,
nobody quite understands
a cool silent seduction
tells what you can’t do and what you can
For the queen of hearts knows not
The madness of man

RE-WRITE [Dec. 6th, 2006|02:33 pm]

theotherpath
[Current Location |i'm tired of answering this stupid question]
[mood |creative]
[music |my own]

so here's my first stab at making this into a song. i've added a chorus and a bridge. i'm not really happy with the bridge yet, this was just my first stab. i can always fix it later. critiques?


Behind broken eyes
I would mend them if I could
Your burning desire
If you’d let me help I would
You’re just the right size
I wrapped my arms around to see
The frustrated lies
My convenient apology

Take me away, on the winds of new jersey
A better way, is what I need to see
my tearless grey, still wants me to play
Take me away, on the winds of new jersey

As I lay here on the floor
Finishing conversation in my head
My plastic lore
I know won’t help me in the end
My flowers won’t bloom
In a puddle of concrete
And my burned out fuse
Has nothing left to compete

Take me away, on the winds of new jersey
A better way, is what I need to see
my tearless grey, still wants me to play
Take me away, on the winds of new jersey

Sometimes, you want what you can’t have
A desert rain, water escapes through the sand
And my desire, everything else left behind
My chocolate dreams, could they really all be lies

Meaningless words echo so softly
As I paint an empty sky
With my doubted dreams
The who, the where, the when, and why
Maybe someday I’ll understand
The broken promise I made myself
How can I beat my self demand
With the only hand I’m dealt

Take me away, on the winds of new jersey
A better way, is what I need to see
my tearless grey, still wants me to play
Take me away, on the winds of new jersey

Beginner Guitar Songs [Dec. 5th, 2006|12:17 pm]
Serious Musicians!

sabournine
Question for all the guitarists out there:

What are some good beginner songs that you started learning guitar on, or would recommend to a friend who is just starting out? Like the ones with not too many chords, and no bar chords. It's been a while for me, all I can remember is Depeche Mode's "Somebody," and Green Day's "Good Riddance," both in G major.
