Steemit Open Mic Week 49: matt sokol - pictures of me (elliott smith cover)
Finally getting back into the Steemit Open Mic! There's a secret micro-VLOG at the start of this, then the song happens at 1:00.
NOTE: The first ~10 seconds of this are a little pitchy, for exactly the reason I talk about at the beginning of the video... nerves! But it gets really awesome after that, so I wanted to share this take anyway.
I hope you enjoy it... any other Elliott Smith fans in the house? If so, what is your favorite song?
The internet was supposed to save the music industry. Instead, it destroyed it. Will blockchain be any different? This article goes in-depth on the four most prominent music distribution platforms in the blockchain space.
This is an original song and performance, originally created for Steemit Open Mic Week 35. Last week's splitscreen video was fun, and I wanted to try a fully composed song in that style this week.
The end result - pretty cool! I think the next step is to try and expand on the visual aspect. I want to take it from "amateurish but fun" to "damn that looks sick".
Stay tuned for week 36 :-)
Hello pals :-)
This week I wanted to really stretch out into the gnarliest math / prog mode. I was thinking about all that old Zach Hill / Vince Rogers (Tera Melos) drum shit, started out with the drum groove, then a whole song emerged.
What is cool is that it ended up being a catchy kinda thing - the vocals brought it all together.
Stay tuned to the end for a total drum freakout if that's your bag.
