Well, after the postal strike subsided, my adapter finally arived and, after much deliberation and messing with recording imputs and what have you, i finally got the first 5 tracks of my album, "This is Who i Am" recorded! As you can guess from the name, it more-or-less is a musical document to ideologies, opinions, and little quirks that i have.
(Note that i will update these threads when i have Album Art to post; I haven't had any time to get some proper drawing done the last couple of days.)
Napsbury is the shortened name of a housing estate built on the remains of a mental assylum (Which had the very same name) located in London Colney. The road i acctualy live on acctually turns off into the place. As you can imagine, many a bullshit 'Ghost Stories' where spun in playgrounds, including the ghosts of Axe-Wielding Psychopaths. Knowing someone who did work then before it was shut down, i can assure you they never treated any psychotic criminals. Just you're run-of-the-mill mentally handicapped people (barring in mind i don't mean that as insensetive as that might have come off). It was more or less shut down for money purposes. At least, i think that's the case. I'm not entirely sure.
In spite of this, the few remaining relics that remind the residents of the time it did serve as a Mental Assylum are hauntingly (*snerk*) beautiful. And inspired me to create this quick, mood-based peice. I tried mixing up various samples to give them odd, unnerving sounds, to reflect decrepid, run-down ruins that have long since been out of commision, but continue to leave a lasting impression;' even if but one of slight sorrow. I think the only 'natural' melody sample is the Piano loop.
