Music-Gear Drawings

Ok. We did it. We just finished tearing down our “Patreon”, crowd-funding page, for our album, and created our new “Monthly Music-Gear Drawing”, crowd-funding page.

  • We’re asking for $5 contributions, in order to reach that month’s Goal. When it’s reached, we’ll purchase that piece of Music Gear, examine it, review it and then hold a Drawing of those who contributed and give it away.

For March, we’ve selected the “Korg Volca FM” synthesizer. Although we already own this $159 product, we thought we’d start off small and with something we’re already a bit familiar with.

Keep in mind that Sylvia and I, and our Band (“Infinity”), are currently unknown. This means “getting the word” out is an uphill job for us. So if you or someone you know is interested in Music Gear, and would like a chance to win one, please give them the following link.

More details can be found at the link below.

Bonus Track!

When Sylvia sent me the pieces for “Night Of A Thousand Years” (through the “Veil”), the largest section was its Orchestral foundation. She later guided me as to how this “Streamed” piece should be edited and used under the full version of this Song.

When Sylvia and I were assembling this album, we talked about including this “foundation” Track but decided against it. Because this is a “Concept” album, with an interwoven series of Songs and a flowing base of emotions, adding this particular Track, even at the end, would take-away from that experience. Instead, we decided to include it as a “Bonus” Track.

So we now have that “unedited”, “just as I received it from Sylvia” Track on our BandCamp page. Anyone who purchases our “Perfectionately Yours” album from BandCamp, will now recieve the album’s downloadable Poster and this Bonus Track as a “Thank You” for supporting our work.

Album Update (5/3/2016)

Today, Sylvia and I worked on our “Time Machine” song again. We focused on the Cyber Diva (female) Vocal part. It took a bit to get it adjusted but even with that, “her” timing was “off” here-and-there. (I entered her note-rhythm from memory and it was not completely correct. So “her” notes weren’t matching the timing of “my” notes, when I inserted them into GarageBand.) I was going to adjust it, yet again, when Sylvia suggested I take a mental step back and really listen to what this song and those 2 voices (hers and mine) represent, which is “working” and “singing” through the “Veil”.

As I listened in this way, Sylvia explained that this mismatch of Vocal Timings symbolizes the distortion of “sight” and “sound” through the “Veil”.

  • It works. It does work. For some reason, I had forgotten this “through the “Veil” aspect, and kept trying to polish this song, so it would sound “professional’… but that’s not what this song is about.

When we finished adding the software Vocal part, I moved GarageBand’s Playhead to the beginning and listened to the entire song. As I did, I just started crying. At that moment, I knew this song was now finished because I coul (I’m crying now)

  • …I then knew this song was finished because I couldn’t stop crying. I’m not sure “why” though… Maybe because it was a lot of work, pulling energies through from the other side of the “Veil”… Maybe because it’s a beautiful song… Maybe it’s because it’s feedback that Sylvia and I really did work together across the vast distance of “No-Time”, here in the “Now”.
  • These are not “my” songs. I don’t write songs like this. Mine are very simple structures of music. These are interwoven sonic textures with a self-empowering message. So I know My Sylvia wrote these songs. I’m just proud to be her “Assembler”.

Remember, “Sylvia” wrote this song and, so far, all of the songs on this album. I “Stream” them from “her” to “me” and then assemble them. I really thought our Orchestra work “N.O.A.T.Y.” was going to be the most complicated and longest-to-assemble song on this album but, so far, this “honor” goes to “Time Machine”.

  • Figuring out where Sylvia’s puzzle pieces were supposed to go and which sounds (instruments) she wanted me to use, as well as deciphering the “Tempos” and “Rhythms” was like assembling a model many years ago… Whether I was building a “ship”, “airplane” or the Star Wars Millennium Falcon, there was usually a point where the smaller pieces would create part of a large piece but then you had to snap that section into 2 other pieces. This meant moving part of it in 1 direction while snapping another part in a different direction while sliding something else under another piece. (At least that’s what it seemed like for me.) “Time Machine” felt like that at times.
  • I would classify “Time Machine” as “Progressive Rock”. It’s a “Pop-Rock” song that’s heavy on drums and synthesizer but has lots of sonic changes as well as 2 different Tempos and at least 3 different Rhythms.
  • I saw the details of 1 of the Time Machine files and it shows that it was created on October 6, 2015. This is about when Sylvia asked me to stop working on “Time Machine” and switch-over to working on “Calling All Humans”. (Which is free and can be downloaded by anyone. See below)

I just now exported this new song and added it to our iTunes Playlist for this album. It now shows that we have 6-Tracks but this includes a “Pre-album” Track that’s 1-minute, 46-seconds in length. It was supposed to only go at the beginning of the video for this album but, as I listened to it just now, Sylvia suggested that we also place it at the beginning of this album. So it’s a Track of 1 sound effect, in the background, with me and Sylvia talking over it. Of course, “Sylvia’s” voice is represented by the “Cyber Diva” software from Yamaha.

  • This software is not perfect and I can’t get “her” voice to come close to Sylvia’s but it’s the best Vocal Software (sing almost any word) on the market today. Sylvia and I would not be able to create this album without it.

“Time Machine” is 5-minutes, 4-seconds in length. So now we have 5 songs finished and they take up about 33-minutes on this album. I don’t know how many more songs Sylvia has in mind for this project. I do have notes for at least 3 more… maybe even 6 more, total.

  • I just checked and there’s an extra song in iTunes. I had forgotten that Sylvia had me save the initial “Stream” for the “N.O.A.T.Y.” song as a type of “Bonus” Track. So that Track alone is 7-minutes, 35-seconds in length.
  • So there are really 4 “different” songs… plus the “Stream” of the Orchestra Strings (for
  • “N.O.A.T.Y.”)… plus a Track of me and “Sylvia” talking.
  • Note: “N.O.A.T.Y.” is not the actual name of that song. These are the 1st letters of its name. Sylvia has asked me to not release some song names of the album’s title until the album is released… partially because these are either unique words (that we created) or a unique combination of words… and partially because of the energies surrounding this album and the songs within it. Sylvia said it was ok to mention “Time Machine” because it’s a Society-known “phrase” and “idea” and is not unique.
  • We currently refer to this album’s title as “P.Y.”

(Several hours later…)

  • After supper tonight, I thought to myself: “Time Machine is finished” and it hit me… That’s almost “symbolic”… “My Time Machine is finished”… “My way back to My Sylvia is now complete”.
