Any musicians?

Postby jwl298 » Mon, 07 Nov 2011 11:49 am

Hi, I'm 23 yrs old and moved here about 7 months ago from the US. I am a bass player looking to get some kind of original project going (all I've been able to find so far are cover bands and punk/death metal groups which really aren't my style). If you play any instrument or sing and are interested, let me know. I'm looking for something funky, electronic, experimental like The New Deal, STS9, Thievery Corporation, Younger Brother, etc...

Hi Justin, I play the guitar and sing mostly top 40s but im keen to explore on new stuff. Maybe we could jam together?

Hey - could you tell me a bit about yourself - experience/favorite style of music, etc... It's just that I've met with so many people and mostly they are just into straight rock stuff and it is a bit boring to me (nothing wrong with it, I just find it not fun to play). Have you heard of/do you enjoy any of the bands I listed?

I don't have a channel but I could put something up if needed. I'm no pro either but I'm not a beginner (as I see you aren't either). My main style is funk/open jam but I am trying to move into more electronic groove-oriented music. Acoustic wouldn't really fit unless it was an added overtone or riff. How are you with an electric? Also, do you know any other musicians?

Do you know any musicians that play anything besides punk/metal/covers? In my short experience here there are not many - I found two guys that I jam with from time to time who are great but our schedules don't work so well so it's not really a dedicated thing. ](*,)

I really want to get a live jam/electronic scene going here but I just have nowhere to start

Hey I'd be keen to try something, my Telecaster's been sitting idle for way too long now. I play a lot more mellow stuff than punk and metal and dabble in sequencing, maybe we can work something out.But you'll have to introduce me to the sound you're after, I'm a bit behind on my electronic.

I know an electronic musician who might help round out the sound if he isn't too caught up with work.

Check out my Soundcloud, I threw together some electronic demos of alt songs I used to listen to.

nice arrangements - Whatever I fear is my favorite out of the 3. yea I'd be interested in trying something out - do you know a drummer (or maybe we can just arrange samples or something - I can get a copy of Abelton Live from a friend if necessary)?

Check out Thievery Corporation and Sound Tribe Sector 9, see if you like them or let me know if you want some recommended tracks.

yeah we could start playing over loops, so much easier to set up that way. i know one really versatile drummer, but he's in town just one week a month.. what about a keyboard player?

i listen to a ton of thievery corporation, checking out sts9 now. they're pretty cool live .. i'll throw in holy freak and mr. meeble for two more bands i listen to doing the live electronica thing. and of course these guys- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZuunY8BTqNs

yea that cover is awesome I was blown away the first time I saw it - I've actually been thinking of grabbing the source audio stuff the bassist is using.

I don't know many musicians here but yea a keys player is definitely wanted, especially someone that can mess with live samples and loops. I have Abelton now btw and am borrowing my friend's M Audio DI

So between the three of us we have guitar keys and bass with DAW capabilities... Any interest in getting something started? Do you have any samples of your stuff?
