Exquisite Cynic-Mostly Harmless
Exquisite Cynic is the band name/pseudonym I’ll be using to post some home recordings I’m working on. I’ve been playing and writing music for years and despite a few short-lived bands and lots of open mike sessions over the years I don’t feel I’ve recorded anything worth listening to. So I bought an electronic drum-kit and set about recording a song that sounds somewhat complete. I spent a good deal of time on the arrangement and also finding the right guitar tones for the vibe of the song. Hopefully it’s not too obvious that I started drumming like two weeks ago! The idea for the video was totally ripped off of an old red dwarf episode, I love how weird it looks. Plus most of dealings with video are in animation which is labor intensive – this was refreshingly quick to make.
