    "Monk Business"

    Strangeness Lovers,

    Here's a fun thing that I wrote this morning while combing the one hair on my head. This is "Monk Business" and it features what is called 'throat singing', a technique whereby Tibetan monks are able to sing incredibly low notes.

    The 'throat singing' is accomplished with a plug-in called the "Delay Lama". The strings are all GPO.

    Larry, you're so often at your absolute best when you step outside the box a bit.

    Loved it!

    Absolutely loved it!

    Mix suggestion -- maybe bring the "monk" up a bit?

    Glad you took a liking to it, Mr. Dave. I thank you.

    I will remix it when I can and give the monk more prominence. Thanks for the suggestion.

    WOWZER! This is simply amazing Larry! Loved the pedal notes. Loved the whole thing. David is right...take a journey to left field more often.

    Wow!.. i loved this too.!

    the melody is great!,
    The voice although a bit mechanical, was fun.... i think a proper human voice would make it awesome!

    ... anyone know any Tibetan Monks around??...


    great work Larry !

    I agree about the positive comments on stepping outside the box!

    HAHA!! I love it!! I remember playing with a plugin called Brother Gregory or something like that that sounded very similiar to this. I think it came with GPO's cubasis. I could never figure out how to use it.

    Great piece!! A depart from the norm. I love the strings!

    Neato. I've had Delay Lama for a while but I never thought to actually use it--I've just thought of it as a toy.

    Now I'm going to have to dust this baby off and make some music with it.

    Incindentally, have you ever seen "Ghengis Blues" ? Great documentary about a blind american blues singer who teaches himself how to throat sing and travels to Tuva to compete in a throat-singing festival. The film is a bit slow at times, but the story is great and the music is awesome--well worth seeing.

    Actually, the monks themselves sound almost like this plug-in.

    Thanks for your comments.
