cortex records matthewchen is spamming
March 28, 2006 8:04 PM   Subscribe

This is a litle weird, maybe, but so cool I wouldn't want anyone to miss it before it drops off the MeTa front page. adamrice said 'matthewchen is spamming', so I said 'there's a jangly, wistful guitarpop song somewhere in the phrase 'mathewchen is spamming'....' and cortex agreed and went ahead and recorded the song. How cool is that? I love this place sometimes.

That is pretty cool. I listened to it in the thread of the same name. wouldn't it be cool if all metatalk posts gave birth to such creativity.

Like I'm sure everyone else that wanted to listen to it could go there and hear it.
Why is this callout worth three lines worth of Metatalk space, thus forcing other stuff down, when the post you're praising is only 4 posts down?

'cause cortex put a lot of work into the song, and I didn't want folks to miss it, because I thought they would get a smile from it, like I did.

Okay - on third listening (and looking at the monitor), even more props to cortex for tagging the song as being from the album "Mefi - The Lost Sessions" and as being in the genre "Wistful Guitarpop".

Thanks. It was screaming to be done, and I've been pretty much in hard-core music-production mode for the last two months, so, hey.

As I said in the other thread, someday there could well be a Metafilter: The Album, though don't quote me on that.

Why hadn't I heard of that site before?

Well, it's pretty damned new; I just launched it in mid-Februarary. On the other hand, it has gotten a little mefi love, so really the only thing to blame here is your lack of obsessive, completist Metafilter reading.

I'll probably post it to Projects once I feel like it's really and truly out of beta.

Wow, so much better than my "Battle Hymn of the AntiDiosticians".

It's electro-trance pop, with a slightly Ibezan influence.
And by that I mean it's me saying "I don't like Dios" in the whiniest voice I can muster, accompanied by Audacity's click track.

May I inquire as to the technical details of the recording, in the interest of audio geekery, cortex?

Dramatis personae:
- Josh
- Josh's brother, for extra clapping
- a completely unreplaceable beater acoustic guitar
- a Hohner Blues Harp MS
- a Studio Projects B1 condensor mic
- a pair of Sennheiser HD-280 headphones
- a yamaha MG10/2 mixer
- an M-Audio FastTrack USB breakout box
- Adobe Audition 1.5
- a laptop

I wrote the song on the way to pick up some take-out sushi, walking down the street and trying out lines about spamming and words that rhymed with 'filter and generally looking like the quieter sort of crazy person to anyone who passed me.

Recording:
- I layed down a rhythm track on guitar against the click track, did the two guitar lead bits, layed down the harmonica.
- Commenced to singing: did lead vocals, did a shadow track of that, threw it out, did another shadow track that diverged at the move into the chorus and became the harmony track.
- Sang the ah-ahs next, good-enough job.
- Cleanup -- silenced empty bits of the tracks to knock out ambient traffic sound (downtown apartment, cars always whispering by), threw greater or lesser amounts of compression on the vocals and guitar to tighten things up a little.
- Distortion applied to the harmonica track to make it a little more consistent in volume and give it that nice blues-rock tone.
- Started clapping. Called brother -- he lives next door in the building -- and made him come clap too. Did a couple more tracks jingling my keys and a handful of coins. Wondered why I don't own a tambourine.
- Stopped to eat dinner with wife, who pointed out that the sushi was getting warm.
- Came back, finished up the mix, listened, tweaked, listened again, saved as wave, threw at WinLAME to encode mp3, tagged mp3, uploaded to fileserver, reloaded thread, prayed it wasn't closed in the interim.

Probably about an hour's work, total.

If anyone missed goodnewsfortheinsane's Requiem for <blink>, listen to it now. Also pure genius. And a bit of an earworm, too. In fact all three of these: matthewchen is spamming, Requiem for <blink>, and Jingle Rock Bell are a bit too catchy for our own good.

And somehow I happened to miss Packy_1962's matthewchenisspamming until just now. So get it, too! It's great!

Sorry, I thought I'd left a comment to that effect, too, but I guess I dreamed it. Packy_1962 and gnfti's songs are way cool, too. And so was Jingle Rock Bell!

Yeah, Packy_1962 rocks, damn right.

I may be the first to say, but I can't be the first to think, that Packy_1962 ~= Ben Gibbard?

Also: <small> tag? From my cold, dead hands.

Amen. The day that tag goes is the day I flame out in tearful, heartbroken ALL FUCKIN' CAPS.

I ran into a Matthew Chan today. I broke out laughing without realizing why.

Then I remembered. Metatalk!!

You know, matthewchenisspamming is still in my head.

I am a little embarrassed to admit that I just wrote a bridge for it whilst showering.

Listen. You can't just say that and not share it. To say is to play.

No, it was my song! Mine! I just had Packy post it for me because I couldn't get online.

Packy_1962 does rock, though.

Well, then kudos where kudos belong.

Also, I just noticed matthewchen is still posting (comments) to the site. He wasn't banned, apparently. Who knew?

My question, since he hasn't posted in this thread: does he know he's (Meta-)famous?

stavros - apparently he did like the song.
