  • I didn't record that track! Or, my Muse is abusing me...

    Have you eer gotten to the end of a track, exported it, then gone back and listened and was 100% convinced YOU DID NOT COMPOSE IT?

    I have this all the time, it's messing me up. Is it just me?

      yes, me too ... I think I'm channeling the universe

      my more serious theory about that phenomen is this:
      • I listened to various kind of music since even the days before I was born
      • I saved all those impressions into my subconscious mind
      • so now I've got a goldmine in my subconscious mind where all my creative ideas come from


      because of this I find it so hard (but even nessesary) to make for e.g. microtonal music that doesn't fall back to the well known tunings and scales I am trained subconsciously or to create a real new sound-style

      on the other hand, when I'm experimenting with new tools, sound-sources, working-paradigms and so on I too do not create something out of my own ... I create something mostly by accident

      as a conclusion, my musical work is a mix consisting of subconscious impressions and accident :cantlook: and that's it

          It happens a lot to me.
          I don't know who I am, but I'm still alive.

              same happens here--especially so with old multitrack tapes from 2 to 3 decades back.

                My friend and I did some (actually quite decent) tunes ridiculously drunk on his homemade wine. Next morning we woke up and listened to them, wondering "how the hell did we do this". Because the tunes were good, we opted to get drunk again and made some more.

                  I had a track on Soundcloud recently that attracted a couple of positive comments that I had trouble relating to so listened to it again and have no recollection of making it. And it was for one of the image challenges a short while ago too...

                  I often listen to tracks though and cannot remember how I got a certain sound, I guess a consequence of my methods, just hacking away, applying effects etc

                    I wish this would happen to me even once because it's exactly the opposite in my case. I remember practically creating every chrod, every note, every procedure I used creating my tracks, every idea behind it and I hate it. I really do. It's thus impossible for me to listen to my music like if it was written by someone else; not being able to distance myself from my music. To be honest I thought almost every musician had this problem so I'm a bit surprised to hear that some of you sometimes don't even recognize their own music. Sounds really weird to me.

                    Listening to my own music is like hearing my own voice. It's irrevocably mine and it's impossible to hear it with someone else's ears. I'm sure lots of you have the same feeling about their own music. Maybe this is actually a different kind of topic? Not sure...

                      Part of the reason it happens here is similar to Gary's experience in a way.

                      Since what I do has little structure, and the fact I haven't invested the proper time into music theory leaves me without that to reference in past work I haven't heard in a while.

                      I had hundreds of 4 track cassettes--some never got mixed down and then only a portion of the mixes and albums ever made it to the digital realm. For me, that's several decades of the absence of something I may have only heard a limited number of times.

                      Much of what i do is setting up a chain of events and dropping signal into it to see what comes out the other end. Sometimes I will get a process going and leave it for a while so I can listen to it later as I fall asleep. Then it is truly the first time hearing something i made.

                      and sometimes chemicals played a part in the forgetting too...:razz:

                        Oh I recognise my music generally, this is the only track I've ever totally forgotten.

                        And, to be honest, a lot of my OSD etc entries are done late at night and I'm definitely guilty of dozing once or twice so what I end up with can often be a nice surprise for me too.
