Omyiga - Distraction


Title refers to my state of mind lately: although I really should be working for my herexamens I'm constantly getting distracted by that goddamn internet and that cursed ableton. (it's exactly 666mb on my harddisk!)

the concept of the track is that I wanted to make everything with my acoustic guitar: (drums-> tapping with thumb on klankkast=kick, with my nails=tak enz) I wanted to finish it as quickly as possible cuz I REALLY shouldn't be making new tracks now, so mastering sucks, recording is done with a tiny webcam-microphone so expect storingskes. Besides that usual omyiga atmo, buildup and outro but I enjoy it myself so why not.
Perhaps a bit influenced by "Cheer"

Edit: toch nog een bass-synth bijgesmeten to make it sound a bit fuller
maaybe I'll make a 2nd version with more upfront drilly beats and better recorded guitars

I like the accoustic touch here. your way of recording gives the song a certain mood. apart from that maybe a bit typical omyiga/post-rock qua chords and stuff, but that would be my only remark, if it even is one.

dik dik, getokkel & beats could be more upfront^^ (why not go nuts with them and effect the lot?)

....a zeu scheune....
(as mentioned before;snif....snif....peu'teeeuuuu't!)
fits the profile pic perfectly again.
I would dare to use a counter-melody at the end ,to give it nen twist,..

verry nice subtle evolution with the effex'in.


Midiot [be] - 12 years ago

nice, I would add some accordeon/melodica sounds to give it a folk touch :p maybe some reversed guitar

Omyiga [be] - 12 years ago

yes all very good ideas; my original plan was acoustic guitar-only; but after the exams I'll edit it miskiens nog with your suggestions. And about the typical omyiga-ness: achja, er komen binnenkort omyigaliederen aan met een gans andere stijl, owyeah!

thanks for listening und commenting (=

teebo [be] - 12 years ago

very good song, i agree with skip about the "snif....snif....peu'teeeuuuu't!" very emotional and a nice atmo

Voxcoder [be] - 12 years ago

nice track! particularly with the noise at the end part..

Doorchaser [be] - 12 years ago

Mooi, mooi. Please leave it this way It's beautiful as it is. things made in a jiffy usually come straight from heart and stomach!!!

Omyiga [be] - 12 years ago

that's true ^^; that's why I don't like editting and changing
I think I'll just re-record 2 loops that aren't fully 'in de maat' and make the beats a bit more upfront/drillier

thanks for the comments y'all

particle [be] - 12 years ago

doorchaser is right but reversed guitar can do wonders...
very good track maestro

' herexamens' are always a good motivation to make music ....

rf061992 [be] - 12 years ago

cool, i like the real playing way....

eckhart [be] - 12 years ago

sounds sweet, although a bit long..
nice on the background, but for a real listening track you should insert a voice that sounds a bit like Iron and Wine or so :)
