Any ninjas out there that makes their own music?


As a hobby musician, im very curious about music thats created without the industry.
Its fun to listen to, since the taste is more "real" than much of the industy music.



Wanna share your soundcloud for science?

Be it a work in progress, little snippets, finished product in swahili, old kantonese or english, please share!




Here, i'll start;

First Preplanning of "Richie Havens- Freedom" 2 verse

I've never listened to Richie Havens before so thanks a lot for that! Sounds great, man! Can't be too easy learning a song in a second language.

I love making music and have just brought my recording gear to my new place so I can start recording my ideas again.

This was a tune I wrote to mark my second year living in Qatar: a pretty shitty country with a lot of desert but not a lot of culture.

I studied music at university but it was mainly theoretical rather than practical (criticism, analysis etc. a bit like doing a Literature degree). I taught myself to play guitar and just like to play around and figure out how to do new things.

I have been playing at play an autoharp for the past few years.

The good- As an instrument I love playing it. Against my chest and ear it is like I am part of the instrument.

he bad- feel like I spend more time tuning than playing because I play with vigor.

There is a guy who released a carbon fiber body harp a couple of years ago that stays in tune for days and I want one but it starts around 3 grand so I want one in a while.

Strangest instrument? Probably the sitar back in the day. We used to buy a lot of instruments just in case we needed them for a recording!

Dude, that stuff's great! You should get in touch with some video game developers because I think your music would be perfect for some of the games coming out at the moment. There are loads of indie developers who need music for games and apps so DO IT! Email your stuff around and I can almost guarantee somebody will be interested in using it.

Good luck.

Soundcloud is good for shorter content like songs. But does anyone know about shoutcast? I'm working on putting together a radio show with my co-host Amari. We have a podcast called High Dias and we tried soundcloud at soundcloud.com/highdias, but we maxed out on space (our podcasts are LONG). We just started a shoutcast at http://listen.shoutcast.com/highdias. We're in the process of working on the main site, http://highdias.com. For the radio show though we will be playing any music we like from our friends. Invitation extends to ninja fam of course! If you want to hear the podcast we have most of season one uploaded to http://highdias.podomatic.com and some on youtube at https://youtu.be/Ao4FzXrS14w. We have a lot of content we're brewing for season two and side projects like Burrito Assassin Skate Squad (B.A.S.S.) and the Munchie Cookbook. Any content anyone wants to share please feel free to email me/us at thehighdias@gmail.com. We have mostly local New Orleans artists on board so far. Experimental and rough cuts are more than welcome. Freestyles, whatever. We've featured all sorts on the show (even Japanese Metal made by a fan called 4 Minutes Before Midnight).

So, like the OP asked, any ninjas making their own music?

This reminds me of lying on my bedroom floor as a teenager listening to 80s goth. That's meant to be a compliment.

Lovely, original shit like this will make the 12-bar blues format relevant forever.

For some reason my first reaction is that I want to play Call of Duty stoned while listening to this.

I want to make things. Since the clarinet and alto saxophone are rather silly instruments for small combos and solo work (in my opinion), and also happen to be the only things I play, I'm thinking about doing really simple bars, doing a little bit of weird percussion, and playing with them in Audacity. As far as wind instruments go, you can't really just pick them up after years of not playing and get that "just like riding a bike" effect. Embouchure and breathing control have to be practiced back into shape. Trying to get into a routine so that practice isn't so damned elusive.

I miss online radio. Back in the late 90s when I did this ridiculous internship as a high school student for the local tech bust company in our town, one of the money makers was hooking up an FM tuner to a server and streaming a radio station on their website. Everybody was SO IMPRESSED but it wasn't a huge technical feat. Maybe that Shoutcast can be what I listen to driving and working since I do many hours of both. In any case if I get my shit back together maybe I can contribute?

I used to play violin, guitar, mandolin, and double bass but age plus accidents have both played a toll on left hand dexterity and strength. Truth is I am more of a singer than instrumentalist at this point. A few glasses of red and I will find myself blasting out songs.

I spent the psychedelic 70's doing a folk duo with a highly gifted auto harpist. I remember sitting smoking while he worked to build heirloom quality instruments on our kitchen table. We usually went to gigs with 1/2 a dozen auto harps 3 mics and an amp. We'd make it through 1/2 a set before he had to switch harps because of getting played hard. We'd get to venues at least an hour early to let the harps acclimate to the room then tweek the tuning with a tuning fork and a pitch pipe. We booked as Lady Beth and Capt Zap. Mike looked like the guy on the zig zag pack.

About 5 years ago I bought an old shit autoharp and started to play in part to restore strength and flexibility after a hand accident. It is very joyful but I do get frustrated with the constant re-tuning. I can noodle for hours. I am certainly better than the old grammar school music teachers but I am no where near pro.

sup, Charmosa? I do make my own music but haven't done anything in a while... at first, I was just going through some heavy stuff and then a lot of time passed and my hardware was out-of-date. I guess I just went back to my guitar and physical instruments. I just bought a new machine and am currently in-progress of copying over 50GBs of data over. After that, I think I'll start getting back into it again.

I dig your avatar btw - evolventa ftmfw!!!

first-of-all, why the hell didn't I just make a multiple-quote post like this? /rotfl

Also, I too saw myself playing CoD with this. Maybe even UT... yeah, Unreal!
