Dynamics Plus Gear Lust Remix Video and Lyric Study

October 14, 2015 Leave a comment

Buyers Remorse remix version video of “Gear Lust”

Gear Lust remix Video screen capture

Lust again for Gear

“Gear Lust” was written as a very personal song and I figured most of the references would fly over the average listener’s head. What might connect- is the numerous equipment, brands and hardware references. If you are into production or even been around studios long enough, you might have an aha moment. Mostly, the concept is centered on collecting equipment for the sake of enjoyment as opposed to creating/amassing tools to perform a particular set of tasks.

Gear Lust: To have an intense desire for equipment usually beyond any logical needs of the musician.

            My earliest studio days saw me doing very much with very little. My first sampler was my parents home stereo system’s dual tape deck. Yep, rewinding one tape and loop-recording on the second. When I bought an AKAI SO1, I thought I had it all. The first big purchase I made was an Ensoniq ASR-10 and the expense (when it was brand new) was enough to convince me I was serious and that this was an investment (or at least it better be).

GEAR LUST

VERSE 1

~I’m at Sam Ash, a credit card in a flash

     -little stash of spending cash soon as the salesman asks

       ASR in my grasp, quickly cashed out

then did the dash — maxed out

big black box carried out

first track I tracked out the First beat blacked out

and since seen the seeds sown

that I’d seek to

own a whole studio

and compose in a grove where fungus grows

(the original darkness of a basement studio)

and go all out for a Fallout Shelter

where time goes in reverse.

I’m so immersed in a verse and reawakened

to when first taken by the Gear Lust thirst

(being reminded of how it all started by this song)

 

There’s been continuous references to radioactivity and all things nuclear, which is all derived from my studio being called the Fallout Shelter.

VERSE 2

Then, then the M.P.C became the M.C.P.        

Master Control Program over quantized beats

(references the AKAI MPC 2000XL which served as the central MIDI box and beat-making starting bit. The movie TRON with the central computer)

Dispatch EMTs this patch bay EMP

Radioactive fallout rays irradiate my Rom Tray

It’s the space knight Rompler verse the titan

Triton astride a tide with his trident

Korg silver surf board

(This is about the big change and falling in love with workstation keyboards. The KORG Triton was the first purchase.)

~I’m Jean Luc Infected by the Borg my foresight

affords me more Cause to amplify chords and multiply

Scores.

(Now we are playing a ton of music and writing out bits of music as notes instead of album and records as sampled sources)

   I’m tied to the microKORG: It’s an applied

optical force brought forth from the visors of Geordie LaForge

less is more, none the less I’m poor, even when blood

pours from my pores I’m still at the store with more gear in store.

(Continuing the Star Trek references and a nod to the very first preset library I designed for the KORG microKORG for Producer’s Edge Magazine. I credit the microKORG as being the first synthesizer I bought. The seeing is about seeing the future because this is where I began to see the impact of adding more and more pieces to my studio – ugh oh here we go)

VERSE 3

The baby plays in his playpen the Rob Papen presets sits

and assists in the bank of the A6.

It’s the basics of a spaceship, in an analog grip equipped with

digital chips, conducting experiments

(I was always sampling the sounds from Sci-fi movies and wanted to tap into the source and generate those sounds myself. I researched analog synthesizers and saw the Alesis Andromeda as a monster addition. I studied the presets designed by Rob Papen and learned a new appreciation for programming and moved away from the ROMpler preset as a final destination.)

Rocket Science cast iron Voltron Black Lion.

Gear with brushed aluminum in all their glory. Well yeah, if we have a Voltron, then the A6 is the black lion sitting in the middle as the body of my studio.

Galaxy Alliance – LFO descends like a UFO

(I start generating the tones I was searching for)

pro tool to edit in Audition, extra exhibition.

I’m Roy Orbison with X-Ray vision

visit my Solar System

(Switching to computers with both Pro Tools and Adobe Audition was a huge change. And once you turn out all the studio lights out, you see a galaxy of stars.)

I’m a Projector wiz with the AV and with the

JP and the JD and the JV all Roland into one

Super Friends/ Justice League.

Greed’s the engine to feed, plus it’s the rush of gear lust.

(All references to Roland rack-synths. I felt like I had missed out on some real gems and began tracking them down one by one.)

VERSE 4

On Craigslist I can’t resist the endless

list of equipment and musical instruments.

I told my wife I need this

Every weekend someone was selling another “classic” at an affordable price. There were times I didn’t even think I needed the piece, but I didn’t want to miss out on a good deal.

   She said get your Focusrite it’s a sounbank that amounts

   A new track to bounce, a few checks bounce,

a new age pronounced, the old sounds drowned out,

moving the crowd, removing any doubts, setting up my debit accounts

my debt mounts, I moved out, first record comes out,

my credit runs out, a few fans ran out.

(And part of the addiction is the music being made. With every new piece it feels like something is changing or growing and the lust begins to feed itself based on output. A new hot track validates the purchase. ‘See, I couldn’t have made this if I didn’t buy...’)

Shots rang out, CD sales count and I surmount

and insert a new serving; this my new album announced

   Rush my Rocket Science – a crush is a crutch,

and hear a bust, – down for the count from the Gear Lust.

(The reality is, it doesn’t take a mound of gear to get the records made. And leaning on new purchases is an excuse to not be productive. I can’t do this until I get this…If I only had a…

I was extremely productive when I had one piece of gear and people starting calling my living room a studio when I put a mixboard in it. I call much of this the difference between working in a studio and owning a studio. You can spend a lot of time and be easily distracted by minor details which really don’t increase your productivity. You may feel better [and that counts too right?] but as far as getting work done, it can really reach overkill quickly.)

Chorus

Closed Captioned a bust, so close to the clutch

It’s Technique over touch- so close to Gear Lust

     It’s at most a Rush, a new plug is a plus

As it grows so Composed In the throes of the Gear Lust

Closed Captioned a bust, so close to the clutch

It’s Technique over touch- when so close to Gear Lust

(Lastly I do want to mention the line a ‘ a new plug is a plus’. In the remix video I was able to better illustrate that line because it’s a play-on- words. I’m talking about a plug as VST Plug-in and the plug as in a hardware power cable. And of course Closed Caption is always my reference needing to see my lyrics written down so you understand my word choice [homonyms and such]) I fell in love with software instruments, but still leaned towards the VSTs that were powered by hardware samples. And yep, we had a ton of those too. For now, it’s a stripped down studio that is more about work than works- lots of pieces abound, but the focus is only on a few bits of kit.

Before I forget, there is a cameo from WUSB 90.1 Battlezone radio host Richie Ruckuss (https://www.facebook.com/richie.rukkuss)
