[electronic shoegaze] Chase Dobson - Sombriata - SunSeaSky Production's Seasons Vol1



Backstory:

Pre-hard drive theft (Tycho's tour van's windows smashed out in San Fran CA after the first weekend of Coachella) I was working on some songs (that were subsequently lost), this tune was recently released on a compilation on Sun Sea Sky Productions and intended to be a sneak peek of whats was to come. I'll be re-inventing the wheel as a result of the loss, but this is where I was headed. Heavy early 4AD / Projekt Records records vibe here, intentional as those bands have played a large influence in my musical upbringing. In retrospect, having my voice so far forward in the mix is pretty intimidating, but you know what? You gotta be loud in order to be heard.

sounds awesome, Chase. bummer about the theft. hopefully, the re-invented wheel will be at least 25% more rounder-er. and, heresy, you can never have too much reverb with this kind of stuff.

Re: [electronic shoegaze] Chase Dobson - Sombriata from Sun Sea Sky Prod "Seasons Vol

Thank you. The hard drives were a big hit, lost all of my works in progress as well as album archives.

As a result i have plans for a shift in direction. Not TOO far, cause... I do what I do, but somehow I've found myself with 6 guitars of all sorts of flavors (acoustic, bass, baritone elec etc) and am feeling the need to do what it is i do best, play them.

I'll worry about synths and treatments on down the line. Gotta finish up tours first tho, in Asia ATM with Owl City and when i return to the ole USA I'll be doing a ton of Tycho dates. Big plans for the downtime tho. Big plans...

This is similar to a sound im going for, so itll make a great reference track.

I like the timing of the sub syncijg with your claps. Not enough verb on the claps though, sounds like someone is clapping in a box while youre singing inside a a large hall. I can tell its verbed but the room size or something is bugging me, so it comes off a bit artificial.

Excellent voice man. Can you really hold a note steady that long or are you relying on the delay?

Expertly mixed. Im surprised you didnt pan things away from center…? Maybe im just not hearing it or its way subtle.

That is so sick though. I'm mad excited to hear what you come out with. How much longer till you take your time off?

Real time off starts in August at this point, unless Owl City's upcoming record takes off, then it is all question marks.

Ive seen studio folks use melodyne religiously. I need to jump on that.

its pretty fantastic. great for utility stuff like tuning, awesomer for weird sound design.

Ah, this is really nice. Nailed the mood all the way through. Would lend itself to all kinds of visual treatments as well.

thanks so much.



given the fact that this song is a reflection of a heavy psychedelic experience a visual treatment would complete the circle.

Awesome compilation!

Your tracks fits in very nicely, reminds me of Robin Guthrie
