Show thread

Show thread

this is what I sang down at the duckpond this 5 o' clock in the morning!

Show thread

@selontheweb @hyperlink @dirt @gdkar @knownrobes @garfiald

(if you saw the version I put on TikTok, this one is different!!! gooder!!!)

Show thread

I kinda wanna show my dad this cover but I feel like it invites the question "why are you singing this song" and all of the answers to that question are depressing and some of them are actively hurtful even though they add up to the strongest sympathetic feeling I've had towards my dad in years 🤔

Show thread

I have to spread every piece of music where I sing and harmonize with myself as widely as possible, becuase if your only exposure to my music was things where I Didn't sing and harmonize with myself, you might gather the impression that I had heard Of music but didn't really Get It

Show thread

unbelievably self-absorbed take but you should hit the one-song repeat on this track of literally just my voice, it's really the only way to experience my artistic [dies of fart inhalation]

Show thread

@byttyrs version 1 made me smile version 2 made me laugh version 3 made me cry. just the way it is

@byttyrs looking forward to what repressed emotion and/or fresh horror Version 4 might bring

@byttyrs I really like the production, it softened the surreal edge on some of those harmonies. Great work!

@byttyrs it really feels like I'm being abducted by aliens in the best possible way

@Aleums 💛😊💛 the Otherworlders are here and you can finally breathe easy~

@Aleums I generally trust myself when I throw in a dissonant harmony these days but the one on the word "spark" was really a lot to be throwing at the listener, so I'm glad it works for you!!!

also all of the reverbs come in threes, panned in different ways, one pitched an octave up and one down, and the pitch-shifted reverb tracks have both delay and predelay. pitching up wet-only reverb doesn't sound that strange on the humming tracks, but for the singing it's, uh, it's a Weird sound. absolutely the choir of angels that shows up to abduct a cow, for sure

@byttyrs mads! if i've ever listened to nmh before i've immediately forgotten about it so this is a very lovely introduction
