Build Break Mold Make

Build Break Mold Make

Project1542 Audio log


   Building down tempo to an up tempo building up beat, that’s the best way to describe this monster, and this monster was a beast from beyond. Monster in the sense that its long…you should be used to that by now, and Monster because some VST instruments %#)E*(&@(  don’t like to play with others in a crowded environment. I want to blame Live but after more investigation poor programming on the VST side is to blame.
   Most of this was a far cry from what it was sounding like in my head, but none the less the outcome was greater than expected. The biggest step in where I want to go is really improving on some scales and chords. If you listen to some of the recent stuff you can see the pointy head-stock of a guitar permeating the mix. The blues pentatonic scales and chords are what I have used to build the Project1542 from the ground up. This has worked well for the heavy rock/metal/blues background, on the other hand its coming to the limits of where I would like to take the music. 
   On that idea I am going to take some time until the next post focus on some chords and scales. If you really like this song and where it is going, don’t stress this kind of greatness doesn’t just get thrown out and I will be revisiting it soon in the future.
   Listen to the recent audio logs and at least my feeling is around a quarter of the way to final touches here. If we can keep ignoring family, friends, and the infamous “you should have been there party” the music will keep churning and burning. For now it’s off to the valley of the sun, there is something about playing music in house in the woods with vaulted ceilings that brings out fantastic creativity.

Dark Die or Consumed



Project1542 Audio log


This one is short and sweet. I was told there was a synth by Hans Zimmer, if you don’t know who he is, he has been behind the music of such films as: Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, Gladiator, Black Hawk Down, The Last Samurai, Inception the list goes on and on. So I jumped a chance for a really complex synth with some really awesome patches. I have been playing around with it and well here we are, the drums and guitar are the only peace’s not produced by the synth. All of the other sounds are coming through zebra except some compression through Ableton. 

-There will be more stuff in a couple of days got some more fantastic work on the way, this has been a tiny side project...for today at least.

Project1542 Audio Log 5-28-2013




So to start out I have some original material, then a one hour continuous mix by Stan.  The first is another totally new production built from the ground up. I included a screenshot for below for viewing pleasure, so you can see the kind of effort that has gone into making it. For the most part it is a large portion produced with a good amount of time put in it…(easy and easier I might add), and with that time brings the power of bending a song to you will each step of the way.

Pay no attention to the length because it’s really two songs the second portion really just got mixed at the last minute as part of a larger live set… see picture below. Included guitar which I takes me back to some of the stuff we were producing earlier last summer, however this time it is not just this solid concrete thing that does not change, more like a ambient and dynamic electronic sound with a great deal of stage worthy modifiable musical properties. The name is a play on words (hidden meaning in everything). 



 Second part is a mix of some old school trance I have been listening too, from the days when the balearic island of Ibiza was the creator of some fantastic feel good music. My visit there forever altered my taste in music, and sound which to this day I have always been chasing. In hopes of bringing that same experience back here is the track list for Stan’s euphoric mix.

Stan’s Euphoric classics mix-
1.      Boccaccio - The sercret wish "0-3:46"
2.      Mauro Picotto - Lizard "3:46-8:25"
3.      Sasha - Xpander "8:25-12:30"
4.      Lovechild - Liberta "12:30-17:04"
5.      Pulser - Cloud walking "21:41-25:50"
6.      Gate - Iron Eden "21:41-30:54"
7.      Push - Strange world "30:54-34:47"
8.      Lost Tribe - Gamemaster "34:47-39:21"
9.      Angelli & nelson - El Nino "39:21-44:28"
10.  Cascade - Trancend "44:28-48:06"
11.  PPK - ressurection "48:06-52:28"
12.  Veracocha - Carte Blanche "52:28-58:13

A chiptune maybe?

Project1542 Audio Log 5-23-2013



So I was playing with some patches on the synth and found a chip tune patch,  really cool. I have watched some people perform some chiptunes only once before and it was really amazing, hacked Gameboys from the 80s turned into instruments making out of this world BPM and sounds. So on a whim found this patch and turned it into something. The something would be something probably listened to something like this ever.  Experimental musical project we are so, we bring you a chiptune with real drums, guitar and some other sweet stuff that really thought was cool together. Make sure if you listen start at about 4:30 to the end favorite part of it, then listen to the rest if you have got that far. If you like it let me know and I will try to make more for now just a little fun with some crazy synths.

check back in a couple of days for 1hr euphoric mix of classic trance......

One to remember!


Project1542 Audio log 5-20-2013

Musical Link above^^^^^^^^^  

This I can absolutely say is the best work so far in Ableton, it just sounds really good. The other 2 works that were posted earlier fail in comparison to this. It really shines. Playing it is a joy all in itself, feeling like a producer directing each instrument telling when and where to sound. Ableton takes so much work but this work really pays off. So now cheers, to tear it down, reconstruct, rebuild and do 100,000 more times, and 100,000 times better. Only thing I would like to add is some live guitar with some deep hard chords on the bridge, maybe some lead and vocals.
Other than that it feels solid. I know you will feel the same way, if you don’t, well I have no idea what you are doing reading this. That is the confidence this has produced.  
Thanks to the guys at Ableton for making Live 9. Its mind bogglingly complex and hard to learn, when your left brain is Cubase and have no previous electronic music background it was hard at the very least to retrain a brain. However it has help make some fantastic work, and it’s totally up to the operator to create, innovate, and express, that is what the music is all about.

Project1542 Audio log 5-12-2013

This one is really going out there. It has been really fun to produce and really getting down to having fun instead of learning. The noise bass fader is really cool you will notice I was playing with it. I am still getting used to timing it just right and some other mixing type stuff. However this is by far the best one yet. The complete song is mixed in real time and it’s a completely original mix.  Project1542 dual spin state

A New Beginning


A New Beginning

Seem like a long time, and probably is. I have been gone for some time a couple of months, even though months have felt like most of a year. Somehow the giant experience that I have gone through has made it feel that way. The experience… here on the blog at least I will only refer to as a small trip I once took. I was a trip of learning and experiencing that I will not soon forget. It has shown me what is pushing the edge of music, and changing the scene as we know it. You would think if anybody asked. How the music industry is doing? The most common big label response, is that internet is killed the market, and ruined music as we once knew it. This answer could not be further from the truth, in the real world there is a whole new breed of musicians that are pushing the envelope with live performances, venues big, small and some underground.  This has changed the studio sound of so many before, to an almost irreproducible sound that is the selling point to draw fans out and into the music.
On that note as I have returned home to draw on the new inspiration I have found, started working on it as soon as I got home last night. What follows is my own flavor of what I have listened to and the skills I have learned, during my little trip to the real world. All of it produced from start to finish made in an evening, with Ableton live. You will find some screens to show a little of what I am doing. Work always can be done but I felt it best after so much time to give you a dose of what I will be working on.

-Private stock mix – To – Public-

To start off let’s see where we have come since the inception of the project. In the days of the beginning it there was 2 of us jamming on some guitars, or bass, probably drunk, stoned or somewhere in-between. We liked what we were playing however we had no place to take it beyond the confines of small parties, groups of friends and our living room floor. 

From there we graduated to studio recording lots of sharing and eventually YouTube postings, 1st gig and so on. During that time we have all grown up a little some of us spreading to other cities and places. What we have now though represents a continuing of that original passion for music in all its forms. Now two of us make music the way two people can do it best, grim is good with drums and sampling; and I now am controlling DAW’s, recording, effects setups, wiring, keys, and guitar.
Although grim is leaving, for the fast paced world of physics. I hope to carry on the music although by myself with all the great sounds from only one console. This is one of the final mixes for grim and I, and although he is leaving we have immortalized him with the countless hours of sampling and mixing of drums, and beats that has led to the Project1542 beat library. Now here it is several projects created entirely by me through use of grim as the sampler, are now in a nonstop mix! The mix was produced in Cubase then imported to Ableton Live, thanks to the wonderful APC40 made by Akai, I can now bring the sound out of the studio setting and on to the main stage, if we choose. For now listen to the very first mix (yes very first), of the Ultrarelativistic.
Taken full circle from the start of a jam, production, recording, mixing and now DJ like template used in conjunction with Ableton Live, to bring it to you live, this we hope is not like anything you have been hearing because this is a start to finish electro-hybrid mix.

Project1542 Audio Log 1-22-2013

More samplelogic goodness! 

Partly restructured added filters limiters and some parallel compression for a nice thumb sound. Over all structure is the same just 2 peaks instead of the one before. Grim has added a drum line but for now its being left out, we are having problems limiting the drums and creating that same thump without blowing the RMS. Couple of days and you can check back on that as for now, we think it is miles better then before and it is loud and polyphonic. Best way to enjoy is with a good pair of headphones or a killer stereo or 5.1 anything else and you are missing the expansion waves from the effects setup..Enjoy!

Project1542 Audio Log 1-8-2013


New tune for the New Year. 

Resembling some kind of turn of a dial from, crossover, happy hardcore, then on into trance, trance anthem, club mix, progressive trance kind of sound. It might sound like you took a trip back early 2000s, however it is what we were trying to accomplish. Many people do not understand how Project1542 goes from, rock, hard rock, jam kind of style, to something like a trance anthem...the answer? Is in the repetitive slow building eruption feeling that culminates in the crescendo peak of the song or mix, the sound is unique, and very interesting because of its complexity. We want to recreate that in a less electronic fashion with a mix of analog and electronic sounds. Then comes the task of learning the essence of what we are looking for….This song is part of that journey from beginning of trance to progressive trance (no Dubstep) sound. For the mean time enjoy Sample logic found below. It’s long like past couple we have been working on but that is the point.

Project1542 Audio log

Wanted to share something we have been working on, it does not have any filters limiters or anything like that so be careful if you have a big sound system. It progressive, edgy, and another monster of a track (almost 16min). We have almost 7 more min in midi and drums and bass that has yet to be added on. Oh did I mention that we are using a guitar to mid USB plug (sonuus i2M musicport) that has come out very nice you will notice it if you listen real hard, however there is lots that is dubbed and quantized… get it right here



On a separate note all previous content will be removed soon...making way for new content and also killing old links. So now is the time to download if you don't get it now it will probably be here in some future re-post of madness.

Project1542 I know you pain (ewan dobson cover)

This guy plays some kick ass folk/trance/Leo kottkey style of guitar that is out of this world http://ewandobson.com/, blown my mind again and again. As tribute to the style of music he has played I have made a 20 min song out of a song he has made called I Know your Pain.... Sounds like a mix of happy hardcore and trance hybrid of something that is quite out there...There should be a video not far off........enjoy!!

The Space Lottery?

What is .........Project 1542.......We create, We innovate,We make music, and we are in a state of always outside the box creativity and thinking. So what can Project 1542 be....It also can be a non-profit project for sending people to SPACE! 
                            
            Project 1542 = Music,and Nonprofit-Organization for space lottery 

                                                        THE PLAN
So many people would love leave this pale blue dot, if only for a moment, to be apart of an experience that will last the reset of you life. Many people have said going into space was the defining moment in their life. What we want to do is to give a large part of the population that one chance...chance to change their lives forever through the means of space travel. So how are we going to complete the monumental task of putting a man/woman in space, the answer? On 11/12/12 we will be posting our plan for achieving all of this. Would you like to join or help the project? Email us a Project1542@gmail.com


Note on mastering

This song has lots of compressors, fades, synths, however most of all its bright and you can hear the instruments separated, moved away from each other in there own pocket. Fx and mastering has changed those muddy notes and brighten them up, for space. It takes time and effort but the result in nice.... and we are only learning. Without further stalling for words we present to you Midnight Sun https://dl.dropbox.com/u/3493280/Midnight%20Sun-11-6-2012.mp3  not sure what category to call it but its bright, clean, and sharp, comes right out at you. Let us know what you think!....Back to the music -Stan

Absinthe of light 10-24-2012

After a steep learning curve..pretty much bashing heads against walls..to reproduce sounds in Cubase 5 that are factory shipped in Ableton Live we have achieved some. It probably does not sound like the effort that has been put in to this song is in fact countless hours huddled over Ableton live waching tutorials ect , however it has been all of that. What saved us in the end is fabfilter (www.fabfilter.com) expensive suite of filters that does the same as what Ableton does built right in, what it saved though is the ability to create those memorable peak times in music. So how have we done......I am first to say that it still needs lots of work, on the other hand trying to recreate a hole genera of music has been a task, so for now take a listen to Absinthe of light 10-24-2012 and tell us how we have done. More versions to come very soon..along with lots of other stuff, for now a small break................................

Long time since the last post..coming back with something fantastic

After various equipment and computer upgrades it seems like it has been so long. Equipment added to the Project1542 Studio: Axiom Pro 49, ProjectMix I/O also M-Audio, Novation Launchpad (3), APC20 from Akai, Ableton live suite, Physical ReFx Nexus 2, Audix DP7 Drum mic kit, various other computer upgrades and one replaced HDD (only 2 years old :(  ). So what was the point of all   of this....? Its really all about bringing all the things that we love in the studio, out and on the stage. Are we ready live...... it needs some work. Ableton live is massive and there is so much great stuff you can do with it all of it live, on the down side midi cables all over hell and so many drivers and settings it will make you head twirl. 5 weeks down the line things are setting in, midi controllers are becoming like 2nd hands and things are getting easier, on that note here is the latest song (working on it right now) Absinthe of light

A Review!

Thanks to the guys at A&R for taking the time to listen and post a review!


Reviewed by A&R dept

Music Comments: The music here is prog rock and free-range electro-fare. "Flying in the Sky" is a psychedelic wonder with its soft auto-tune and lightly recorded vocals. Other highlights are "Reflection of a Soul", an acoustic melody with raw rock notes, and the weirdly melodic "Give the people what they want" - a super unique blend of guitar chords and fun, trippy notes.

Songs are loaded, graphics art and page layout seems to be working fine. If they would only let expand the background image larger, it would look like project1542 site! However it does look good for the moment, and also seems functional for selling songs and other Project1542 related information. The next problem is the song limit, Ex Atrum In Lux Lucis(web) was 19 tracks so we did have to rummage out some good a bad tracks.  Track list for the new CD is set back a couple of days but it will be here. I am still currently working on the summer Project1542 electronic compilation 15min song...... and I am working, time ? possibly a day 4 at the most. New problems for the week ahead.......... For now head on over to ........Promofm Project1542 for more info.
