This thread should have been deleted a long time ago.  I have no more beef with J.J., or interest in starting fights with people here in general.

This thread should have been "edited-deleted"  or "differently-titled" before it was posted____  Not thrown out and around and then swept up by the adults..

For Nick Sevilla!!!   It actually sounds good, I really like the song!!  This was before he brickwalled everything like the other track!!!  Still, BEST THREAD EVER!!


Hi Bubba.

It was not me, making that song post.

breathe(r) is also named nicolas.

Although I suspect that is the only thing we might have in common.

Thoroughly confused,

I would probably go as far to say that the last 25 years of popular music were questionable, but really we're talking about POP music and we're talking about the music, not the engineering right?

Maybe I'm missing something...

Last I checked big Nick, is that you're an up and coming engineer.  Engineering (AFAIC) is about the CRAFT and the SCIENCE first.  Your beef with most folks around here seems to be more about taste which to me is kinda missing the point... I let that kinda stuff get to me in my twenties (as a musician)  and it prevented me from learning a shit-ton about music and life.  

I'm not going to talk shit about your record (i'm into shit far more out-there than that), but it sounds to me like you need to spend some time learning about the music making process (not just the engineering) in order for your production to grow.  Once you have a firm grasp on the whole deal, maybe people will appreciate your angle (which I think isn't all that bad IMO).  

I'm all for opinions, and I think yours are totally fine, just make sure you can back it up!




agreed.

Tho this thread might've turned out differently if the title was less confrontational, I think the music posted by Breathe is as valid as any non-"popular" recording. It reminds me of a variety of many art-rock bands - 'good' or 'bad' lies strictly on your personal taste, and we all know there is no accounting for taste in music and it's fans.

I know Nicholas invited debate at the onset of this thread, and even if he retracted his initial stance towards JJ, it seems inviting mayhem is his manner. That is fine, tho as mentioned by others, might not be the best approach to gain popularity with what you choose to record and how to present it - esp. in a forum of engineers...

A modicum of respect and willingness to learn often seems to be lost in the current crop of AE's: oh well, tough titty - it's Fletcher's forum, and he can run the show how he wishes. Suffice to say, I extend my appreciation of non-commercial music with what Nicholas chooses to record, but his lack of tact and inability to 'grow' when amongst such esteemed company often has me scratch my head. I sure miss seeing that dancing video tho - shame it's been pulled from YouTube - I wonder why?!?

Happy Holidays, and a healthy, safe and prosperous New Year to all!

Actually I think Nicholas has "grown" considerably in the time he has been here... both in his conduct and his recording.  I'm quite proud of this forum for being tolerant and "going out of it's way" to pass along wisdom to ALL comers.

Keep it up Nicholas!  (and forum)

Happy New Year!

Hi Bubba,

I did listen to that one, and then went back to listen to the previous posted tune, the one my son abhorred.

There is an improvement in that I can make out what is going on better, between the last piece, and this latest one.

Perhaps Nicholas is learning something.

Bloody hell ...


Look, I came in here for a good argument!


So far, there's been a track from Nicholas that nobody really likes or dislikes, a half-arsed row about Rod Stewart which we can't even read, some tears and nice anecdotes about Johnny Cash and now everybody's friends again!


Apparently, Nicholas has mellowed out because he's learned something and JJ's mellowed because he's over 40 and loves his missis.


This is bullshit!  Frown

You are not the first to bring this up!!!  My exclamation points are kind of like Pat Metheney- at first it seems annoying and weird, but after a while you actually begin to like it, then eventually you begin to LOVE it!!!

Honestly, Ive always had a little bit of a stutter- thats where my name comes from (b-b-b-bryan got shortened to Bubba.)  So maybe i'm compensating for that sub-conciously, I cant really explain it.   But will do my best to contain the madness!!  

There is a master plan here, and yes I just pulled the speech impedement card!!!     Wink
