Title: Acoustic Song
Post by: Ecko on December 27, 2008, 10:54:42 am
Ok, here it goes. Maybe there is a thread like this but i couldn't find it.

Machinae Supremacy have never of my knowing made an acoustic song. The closest i have heard is Flagcarrier but the solo isn't acoustic.
I think it could be really cool if they made something like Guns 'N' Roses song "One i a Million". It's a whole acoustic song, even the solo and it sounds really great. If they grab the acoustic guitar, figure out cool chord/lyrics and Supremacize it i think it could be really cool.

What do you think? Is this even possible or is it just me day dreaming ;D?

Not when you compare the acoustic standpoint to Guns and Roses no.


But an acoustic song as in no electronics. Some cool percussion and stuff.. maybe, but to be honest that's not really the sound that compliments MaSu's efforts in my opinion, which could be one of the main reasons they never try this.

Acoustic SID sounds a bit dull to me but you never know.

You need to build a mechanical approximation of the SiD chip and record that sound. A worthy enterprise, I say!

Double moustaches and top hats! Harvey my good man, pack my revolver and the brandy, then get my overcoat! We have a job to do. For queen and country!

I think the good man means unplugged, so the keys could be played in live on some grand wing piano.
Ghost would great to hear this way.. think about the lead tune on a piano with guitars etc.

I think an acoustic song like the beginning of dragonforces song E.P.M. would be some ass kicking song =)

I hate acoustic songs. No.
So you hate it? Maybe they shouldn't do it then...  :o

But seriously, i don't think any SID is needed, just piano and guitar and some cool MaSu skills will do it i think :D

MaSu could do acoustic with no problem. just caus they ahve the SID dont mean they cant go unpluged, take innerpartysystem

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vh2y_BgTn5Q&feature=channel_page thats the original
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_QozPBPHSjs&feature=channel_page thats the "acoustic" version, its easy


btw, semi acoustic version of apex ultima would be the best thing since sliced bread

Curious idea. MaSu write acoustic song! You know, in Russia most famous underground bands use mostly acoustic. Cause they in the head of the corner poetry.
Flagcarrier is a ballade. Wonderful song.
And I think Ecko ment original acoustic song, not "version". +1 ;)

I think it's possible that we do something that's mainly acoustic, but I doubt we'll do something that's completely acoustic. That's too limiting to us, I feel. I'm curious to attempt it, for sure, but if I know myself I know we'd eventually feel the need to include some sort of distortion in the mix. It's hard to keep something completely acoustic, the urge to push the overdrive pedal is too strong. :)

But nothing is impossible, or even in the long run that improbable. We do enjoy acoustic stuff, and it would be a nice way to expand our horizons a little.

Well, these guys do fairly convincing acoustic SiD songs =)

Well... "Convincing" is one way to describe it, that's true... :)

An interesting replacement for the SID would be a Xylophone.
And then for the distortion you could have a harmonica or harpsichord.

Actually I can see this turning pear shaped without some form of electrical intervention.

I don't know if anyone got this but i meant making a completely new song. Not a remake of an old song. And it's good for you to stay away from the dist, then you will enjoy it even more in other songs  ;D

And i didn't mean an acoustic SID but if you can make one, well ye.
Expand your minds!

Well, I daily check the forum to see if there is any news on THE BAND, as they tend to not post any news on the site (or the lame myspace). Only post if I got anything to say, and that doesn't happen to often. Maybe I should venture beyond the walls I already know. ;)
