What happened to the soundclick players on the posts?

Seems Soundclick has finally disabled the embedded player.

I notice overnight all the music links on this blog are gone. Here is a blog post on how much that affected my hits: https://anttismusic...

Space Voodoo



A very weird project. I did not really feel like music. But last night, I began 
pounding the keys anyway. I chose random spacey instruments from synth 1 
ready made patches that sounded like "space night"  music. I gave up on that, it sounded like 
crap. Went to sleep. Had a crappy night (new meds). Got back on the computer,
began making another project. Made a beat on drumtroop. Realized it could work 
on the yesterdays weirdness. Put that on the the top. Began working more on it. 

Added some more instruments. Just random things. Did not even try to have
any binding melody. Added glitches. Saw freqshifter on my fx list. Chose it. Put it 
on both drums and synth 1 instruments. And here is: "Space Voodoo". 

The project is made with FLstudio v 20.6 (new version is more stable)

"Call of Duty: Modern Warfare" Composer / Producer, Sarah Schachner - Pensado's Place #451


A Man Of War (Last Dance)




Vocal




Instrumental


I was watching Rick Beato preach about Mixolydian mode:


One of the examples he played was "In Gods Country" by U2, from the second
CD I ever bought. (Joshua Tree). So I began making something a little
bit similar. (The chorus Chords)

I am going to a brain surgery and dealing with my emotions through songs
about people in situations where they face death. I guess no one wants to hear
about that, so I write songs about soldiers.

A Man Of War (Last Dance)

last dance
wont you dance it with me
before i must go
before bye
bye

once I was
just a cell
in my mothers womb

now i am
I guess I am
dying soon

A man of war
a bullet from
my mothers womb

they send me out
to kill without
a second doubt

last dance
wont you dance it with me
before i must go
before bye
bye

and everybody
keeps telling me its allright
and everybody
keeps telling me its all fine

to die
for the country
to die
for the people

(Repeat)

Ransacked Winter Palace



Instrumental

Inspired by "Children", the megahit from nineties by Robert Miles. I was playing it
and made something a little bit like it. Then that led to the Russian sounding part somehow.

It was supposed to be a classical / film scorish piano piece. But at this point I added the electronic
bass and hip hop beat. So it became a weird pop song instead. 

The Russian part made me think about the winter palace. Cold day. Bolsheviks walking
around where only the tsar family, nobles and servants would dwell. Watching at the glory 
that was winter palace. Dancing the traditional Russian split dance in a palace haunted
by ghosts of past.

A cool pop channel I listen to.

It is a Finnish Swedish radio channel that I like.

I do not know if it works in other countries than Finland.

Rose




Vocal


Instrumental

Inspired by Heroes by David Bowie and Lou reed. 

ROSE



you wore a rose 

on your gun 

now you wear a bullet 
on your head 
there is nothing more that you can do
cause you are gone 
all gone 

and some 
they call you a hero 
and some 
they call you the devil 
i guess it depends 
on which side 
of your gun 
you were 

Rose 
they called you rose 
you 
were one of the boys 

but now 
you are gone 
with your gun 
underground 

and some 
they call you a hero 
and some 
they call you the devil 
i guess it depends 
on which side 
of your gun 
you were 

(I added one more verse from a poem I was writing)

You galloped away to the stars you left me eating tears in the dark i miss your wild i miss your proud mustang heart
(it changes the song, maybe it does not work who knows)

Shadows Of Babylon




I know my 808's suck. Little did I know that there is a little plugin called Sumo, that makes them 
sound a lot better. It also works great on the kick! 

To inspire myself with the 808 I watched this. 



The melody. I just began playing with the old FL Studio plugin "Plucked!" and came 
up with it. 

I actually used volume envelope on the strings to give them that fake feeling 
like there was attention being paid to it.. God. I wish I had worked harder on my music 
from the start.

Cage Of Gold And Silver (Version 2020)





Vocal




New version of my song about Elvis. 

I used to write on usenet with Marty Lacker who was 
part of Elvis mafia. I find it sad how he sacrificed himself
for the music. Yet I suspect him and Priscilla splitting had
something to do with it too. 

Oh and my ex bought me his poster a long time ago. 
It used to be on my wall. The old Elvis of course. 
To me he was at his best right before he passed.
I think staring at that every day inspired the song.  

A Cage Of Gold And Silver

the king

the king he steps out of light
right into the quiet night
where he is just a man

fate

it can dump you in a limousine
give you everything but what you need
a cage of gold and silver

fate

it can lead you to a center stage
singing songs about cold and gray
Chicago morning in the ghetto

here is to you Elvis
thanks for the songs
the songs will go on and on
but we'll miss you man

some may call you king
and some may call you clown
everything you want
is out of this town

but this town wants to
hear you do your song
so shake those hips
and do your kicks

oh see, see what you have done
like a mockingbird, you sang your song
until the day, we got the news
the cage is open, its time for blues

the king

the king he steps out of light
right into the quiet night
where he is just a man

fate

it can dump you in a limousine
give you everything but what you need
a cage of gold and silver

Here Is to you Elvis 
Thanks for the songs
The songs will go on and on 
But we'll miss you man.

I Miss You (I Miss Georgia Too)




Vocal





Instrumental 



My ex lived in the great state of Georgia. 

I miss her and Georgia. Where she lived they shot the "Smokey And The Bandit" 

I was watching it yesterday and "Eastbound And Down" made a impression 
once again. So I made something a little bit like it. 

 I Miss You (I miss Georgia Too) 

I wish I had been Georgia boy
a redneck through and through
God I hate this feeling 
oh so blue. 

My Georgia girl she left me 
like a bottle on roadside 
and i have no clue 
what what i am supposed to do. 

I miss you
I miss Georgia too!

All this God dang poetry and
European music
oh I wish I was not born 
a Finn 

I wish I was corn bread fed
tater eating joe 
living somewhere 
closeby to you 

(repeat)
