Doesn't have to be super weird, could just be a song where you tried something new that you normally wouldn't do.
Also explain what you did that was experimental to you, so that we all know what to listen for.

If you post a track, try to also comment on one or two other tracks in the thread. Could be super short, a few words, just something.

Of course anyone can comment, even if you don't post a song yourself.

I'll post this one I did fairly recently.
I tried many weird things here. Here's a few of them.

First of all, all the sounds are processed with CrapRE 2. That's weird enough as it is. :D
The whole track is a weird mix of genres/influnces. It became some sort of metal/electronic/fusion hybrid thing. The beat (kick and snare) almost has a Raggaton feel, but together with the super fast 16 note rhythms underneath it almost sounds more like metal drumming. Also for some reason I threw in some flutey lead sound. That doesn't make any sense at all.
Instead of cymbals I used a huge slamming/explosion sound effect. The "guitar solos" are really synths played through Kuassas Creme amp.

Cool. I can definitely hear the bumblebee influence. Lots of that cromatic stuff.

this reminds me of something in a video game from the late 80's, especially when the melody enters :)

I think this track of mine is pretty experimental as I used lots of bitcrushing and even samples of elephants:

Cool thread. I'm really enjoying listening to everyones tracks. The weirder the better. :) Here's a track of mine. The entire short song is based around a sample of my dish washer.

Sounds like you had fun with this one.
Even though it's kind of out there, it's still kind of restrained when it comes to the instrumentation (not a bad thing). Bass and chords are on the softer/smoother side sound wise. That's pretty nice actually.

Here's sn experimental track. Fairly basic, sample is from Jim Jones. There's some obvious preset use in the song. Ok

Listen to Blood.Rush.Savage. by warstar on #SoundCloud

Cool. That's a pretty good sounding dish washer you've got there.
Reminds me of an old Björk song. Can't remember the name though.

that’s really cool. seems sad to me, somehow. it reminds me a little of John Frusciante’s first solo album for some reason (which is an awesome thing, in my book). 👍🏼

Single synth experimentation from waaaaaay back (done in R4). It says Thor on the description but I think it was actually Maelstrom or Subtractor... need to dig that track up and see if I could work that into something new with a bit of melody. #noise #experimental

I feel like there are lots of weird moments in my tunes, but I like the subtle weirdness of this one. I think this was the first thing I did using Players, and I was pretty happy with how it turned out. I played around with the structure a little too, which might not seem odd on a surface listen.

thanks! yep, that’s me. RHCP were a huge influence on me, growing up, so I guess it’s not surprising it’s seeped into my own music. :)

Six longform drone tracks I made with R 2.5 a few years ago.


Influenced by Eliane Radigue. Oh, you don't know who that is? DO YOUR HISTORY.

These are some older unfinished tracks where I tried to do styles I don´t go for normally to step out of the comfort zone. Well, after listening to them today after a long time I´m quite surprised that it´s even quite enjoyable ;-) (and it has been the time where we had no Rack Extensions!).
