Spaghetti Western Music… No, Duck Dodgers Music. :)

June 17, 2013 Leave a comment

Hi there, how have you been?

This week I was intending to talk about Tarantino’s Django Unchained soundtrack… But listening to it led me to Ennio Morricone, which led me to Spaghetti Western movies and also to his record with Hayley Westenra (who worked in the Endless Ocean–a Wii videogame–soundtrack)… You know, I can get quite curious at times. lol

So… For now I’ll share something that doesn’t deserve to be forgotten and can arguably be considered in the same league of the works mentioned above–I’m serious here. -.- The soundtrack for the cartoon Duck Dodgers, by Tom Jones and Flaming Lips. :) Give the main theme a listen and dare not to agree. ;)

That’s it for now, see ya next Monday!

A Tough Variation For An Almost Exhausted Theme. :P

June 10, 2013 Leave a comment

Hi there, how have you been?

This week I finally got back to my work in the indie videogame caled “HIVE” and we needed another variation of our very first soundtrack theme. Since I’ve already done a bunch of them this one has proven to be a tough one to figure out… :P Anyway it’s finished and hopefully it gets the job done. :)

The trick here was to shift the original time signature from 3/4 to 4/4… Turning a waltz into a ragtime. lol

I hope you like it…

For you reference here are the older entries on the same matter. :)

Have an awesome week! :D

Music As A Language

Hi there, how have you been?

This week I want to share a nice video from the amazing bassist Victor Wooten about music being a language as any other. Even before watching that I have always teached music with that in mind, the fact that music (as any art) is a form of EXPRESSION. And you can’t keep a little baby from trying to talk before reading or writing, could you? Music is all the same.

Many eductors and theorists think the math behind music is what makes it possible to stand up on its own legs; actually the maths only EXPLAIN why something works or not. That shouldn’t act as a chain, on contrary: it should give musicians better tools to express themselves.

Enough talking, just watch the beautiful video. lol

See ya, have an awesome week! :)
