Looking for some people. [Jun. 5th, 2008|09:17 am]

I was wondering if there were any musicians in the Oshawa/Durham region area (We actually live in Bowmanville) Ontario, Canada.
My girlfriend and I are starting a band, and would like some more members. So far we have Guitar, Bass, and Vocals (More vocals is good too if you play another instrument).
We want to play Rock/Post-Punk, etc. So along the lines of Sisters of Mercy, Queens of the Stone Age, 69 Eyes, Type o Negative, Bikini Kill, Joy Division, David Bowie, The Tea Party, The Cure, maybe some Japanese Rock, The Strokes, and whatever else we feel like playing. Starting as a cover band unless you have experience in writing music.

(Kind of desperate, since I can never find musicians who don't have a problem with me being Trans, so this seems like the best place.)

[music |Rhapsody on a Theme by Kondo]

I am having trouble deciding how to end a composition. I would love some helpful commentary on the piece. I've been hesitant to "show" it in public, but I'm at a stop and am unsure of what to do.

Some information:
Originally, this piece was to be just variations on the Game Over theme from Zelda, but then it grew into more than that, so now I can only classify it a Rhapsody on a theme. The first 15 seconds are the original theme (I'm sure most of you are familiar with it) and the rest is mine. It starts out a little sluggish, but starts getting more creative around the two minute mark. I know there should be a grand restating of the original theme played out full length, but should I do it now or make it longer? If I were to do it now, I wonder what would be a good transition from what is at the end currently. The tail end of the piece is not entirely finished (will probably be longer), but for the most part everything else is as I want it, just needs a little tweaking in places. Does it need more build up? Bah, anyway, here's the file. Hope you like a healthy dose of dissonance in your music! You'll need an iTunes/Quicktime combo that can handle AAC files. Have a listen if you like:

It'll Never Sound the Same Again... [Nov. 9th, 2006|11:42 pm]
[music |Guess?]

It's a half-assed parody, I'll admit, but it made me laugh when it popped in my head. I wrote it in a way that I could sneak it in on unsuspecting people at a kareoke night sometime. That's just my style.

This goes out to all you girls just starting off!

Cut for oddball humor, a little swearing, and a sexual reference...Collapse )

[music |diane cluck - the turnaround road]

hello everyone. felt i could contribute to the community somewhat... maybe. i write/sing folk music (as best it can be described) under the moniker euphemisms; you can find it here. the issue is that my voice is indeed rather deep and undeniably male. even with changing how i use my voice, i don't feel i can sing otherwise. i'm afraid of losing the distinct little niche i've created for myself with my voice - then again the gimmick appeal of a woman folk musician singing as i do is almost too golden for it's own good. anyone else come across this situation?

anyhow, hello everyone.

Some stuff, and... stuff... [Sep. 13th, 2006|12:32 pm]
[mood |yay]

Unfortunately I've had a sore throat for the past five days and can't really sing, but that hasn't stopped me from starting a new song :) Just thought I'd share with everyone. I put the vocal melody in with a piano in the verse and a flute in the chorus, since my voicebox is temporarily Out of Order. It's not quite finished yet, but I'm loving it so far.

Lyrics under the cut...Collapse )

I credit myself as Jennifer instead of Jamie b/c I'll be changing my name as soon as I get electrolysis done. Anyways, hope you like :)

lyricalness [Jun. 19th, 2006|08:41 am]


it's slow at work and this just kind of came bubbling up to the surface.

we are the splintered daughters
falling through the in-betweens
of what society has chosen to see.
bordered by calligraphy
our beauty sleeps in crystal cages
like exhibits of unknown exotics
for celluloid fingers to flashbulb
into public shock and awe
we sleep with your questions
wrapped around us like shame
hold dreams to our hearts like
teddy bear soldiers
as the night turns dark prisms
around the script of after hour
the world's insomniacs become our only audience
as midnight bends just enough to make
us the stuff of their waking wet dreams.
we are the splinters that find the soft creases of public life
and slip in
silent and sorrowed
sticky sweet with femininity
we watch you watch us
squinting in the light to catch us in the in-betweens
of what is true and what is reality
and sometimes we let ourselves wonder
"do they see a pretty girl....
or me?"
