How are things?:cool:
I am a bassplayer from The Netherlands and I've recently started recording under the name Project Alpha.
The first reviews were encouraging but the project is looking for more feedback. Hence I post this message here as well to ask you all to take a moment and go listen and give your opinion/feedback.
My question is also in what style this music should be fitted, is it modern day jazz, fusion, funk, lounge, new age or what?
As said I'm a bassplayer originally but in this project I play all instruments one can hear so far, record and produce all things myself, no samples used in the music.
Accept maybe a drum machine which I programmed myself, played the pattern in live so to speak.
As a bassplayer I'm not a real solo player on keyboard for excample and I find there is room for that still in my work. Trombone maybe in the first piece.
Mainly I try to create a certain atmosphere in my songs rather than make a pop song kind of thing. I think I still have to learn much so any help is welcome.
If you are interested please go and listen at:
I put three pieces there.
The top one called Soaring Eagle I just finished recently.
The middle one is my second attempt and the bottom one on the site is my first
Since response is quite good I'm looking for exposure to, any ideas how I might be able to realise that?
I'm quite new at this ye know.
I recorded, produced and mixed all by my self with Cubase SX 2
I use a TC Electronics M300 for effects and a Behringer 1602 mixing console.
I know it's still very rough around the edges but I think it's good enough to be looking for exposure.
Do you agree for as far as recording quality is concerned?
If the music is suitable for your taste is another matter perhaps.
If you have any tips or advice please lay them on me.
As said I'm quite new at this.
Thanks in advance and with kind regards, Project Alpha.
It don't mean a thing if the bass isn't in!
