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...

Lake Victoria




A really simple song quantized without any feel (quick quantize) (well the swing does 
give it some feel. I was not meaning to really make it. It was a project I thought I would
 never finish. But I woke up 4:30 am and began watching a really depressing movie.

 Quit that. Surfed online, I guess corona is going to kill us all. So went back to this project. 

It is defined by the jungle beat (Synth 1). It had weird chord hanging around c# 
and you know what. I kind a like it. I used noise sweeps again, have not done that 
in ages. It sounds positive. Which I guess on these dark times is a good thing. 

I actually used maximus to listen to the different frequencies on the master. A thing
I should do more. It is pretty easy. Maximus has the low / high / middle frequencies. 
You can turn them off. So I listened to each frequency on their own. A thing I should 
do on every song. But I do not.

I liked the old fashioned bass beats on the low end, but I do not know about the 808
sub that I added. Else the frequencies sounded pretty ok?

May God Bless You (V2)



I am feeling pretty out of it and very logical due to a
medicine change. Seems to be hard to write new songs.
I had set this project aside a while back. I wanted to re sing it
and change the lyrics from the "Churches will burn", which
was written after Notre Dame burnt. I changed it to "old love will die"
and "your life is but a spark". Which I have used probably a few times,
but then again. I guess no one cares about my songs with words.

But I am writing them because, sometimes I just like to sing. Badly.

Yes. I am no Whitney Houston. Not that I wanted to be. Or hey?
I wonder. ;) Kidding..

I also cut it short.

A little change in the lyrics and re sung.

May God bless you!

May God Bless You
may God bless you
protect and keep you
from the fires burning
from the rivers raging

on the way to the promised land
you know nothing goes as you plan
you win you lose and you fall in love
may God bless you man!

Don't
Mind
The News

Old love will die
stars will explode
your life is but a spark
rising to the sky

may God bless you
protect and keep you
from the fires burning
from the rivers raging

on the way to the promised land
you know nothing goes as you plan
you win you lose and you fall in love
may God bless you man!

Bless you.
Bless you.
Bless you.
May God bless you!

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".

"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.
