Title: MUSIC: Jubal Sings Stuff!

Starting with me singing about Cambridge exam stress, fittingly :P

do you take requests?
Title: Re: MUSIC: Jubal Sings Stuff!
Post by: Jubal on May 16, 2014, 08:21:35 PM
That is likely to depend upon the request :P

(And I do have a backlog of songs I'd like to record, though I'm not averse to ideas if people want to throw them at me)

Little Talks by Of Monsters and Men sounds much better with male lead imo.

That was really good Jubal. You have a good voice. ;D

The guitar is a bit too loud, though.
Right now it it's muffling your singing.

Sorry, I hope you understand what I meant to say.
I'm really bad when it comes to musical terminology and to be honest my English has deteriorated a lot in the past few months. I should fix that when I get a chance...

That makes sense, Wolfie :)

I've got a proper mic now, so at some point when I start using that more the sound quality will shoot upwards, but I need a mic stand for it and it's not great for recording guitar and voice at the same time as it's got a small pickup range.

Finally recorded the Winterfell Lullaby  :)

I'm loving it! ;D

Thankyou :)

And here's a more straight-up folk song I wrote:

Thought I'd have a go at it since we were discussing it in the Playlist thread :)

Dug out an old song and finally got it recorded:

Sounds lovely :)
Title: Re: MUSIC: Jubal Sings Stuff!
Post by: Jubal on May 24, 2016, 11:04:07 PM
Thankyou :D

I've decided I should really work through my backlog of old songs and do recordings just strumming through them so the tunes are on record and I don't forget them!

(Do you have access to the Exilian Media channel, btw, for if you ever want to upload stuff?)

I think so somewhere :)

Tabletop RPGs can come up with the most wonderfully improbable events, and one in particular from yesterday - the final session of a brilliant campaign where our characters, refugee fisherfolk, scraped their way out of poverty to build the independent city-state of Haven - seemed to deserve immortalising in song. I thus present to you one of the less likely dangers of being a poor fisherman in a fantasy universe - the time when a large band of gun-wielding halfling bandits come and steal your catch.

I recently watched and liked your most recent song video. Excellent stuff, and quite amusing. Good job. :)

A christmas carol! About PORCUPINES!

Post by: Tusky on January 07, 2019, 09:10:42 PM
Just got round to listening to this, really good, most enjoyable :)  :harp:

Interesting side note / coincidence the porcupine featured on one of my xmas quiz topics! animal gestation periods (https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1JmQlzSVt9y1sJtg5qCVAEwdUyQQnTgOQThbgRu20V9I/edit?usp=sharing) (you can play if you like - just watch the presentation without looking at the little thumbnails first. You have to guess if the amount shown in months is higher or lower for each sequential animal)

Some folk music, a traditional tale about a courtship involving riddles:

Post by: Jubal on September 01, 2019, 01:20:36 PM
Not one but two new songs!

Here's "Salt Horses", an original sea-shanty type song by me:

And here's one of the last of my ASoIaF pieces, the rather long "The Falcon Knight", the Arryns' ballad:

I mentioned last month in "What are you reading? (https://exilian.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=514.msg134634#msg134634)" That I'd read Hope Mirrlees' Lud-in-the-Mist - well, here's my own take on the main song from it :)


Lyrics:

And can the Physician make sick men well,
And can the magician a fortune divine,
Without lily, germander, and sops in wine?
With sweet-brier
And bonfire
And strawberry wire
And columbine


Within and out, in and out, round as a ball,
And hither and thither and straight as a line
With lily, germander, and sops in wine
With sweet briar
And bonfire
And strawberry wire
And columbine


Any lass for a Duke, a Duke who wears green
In lands where the sun and the moon do not shine
With lily, germander, and sops in wine
With sweet-brier
And bonfire
And strawberry wire
And columbine


When Aubrey did live, there lived no poor,
The lord and the beggar on roots did dine,
With lily, germander, and sops in wine
With sweet-brier
And bonfire
And strawberry wire
And columbine


There are windfalls of dreams, there’s a wolf in the stars
And Life is a nymph who will never be thine
With lily, germander, and sops in wine
With sweet-brier
And bonfire
And strawberry wire
And columbine

It took moving from the lyrics on Mastodon to the music video to figure out that death roll probably has the crocodilian (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alligator#Behavior) sense rather than the Jacksonian (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Jackson_%28US_game_designer%29) sense.

Post by: Jubal on May 18, 2020, 11:08:28 PM
Ha, indeed :)

The same module (Zedeck Siew's Lorn Song of the Bachelor) plus my brain has produced another song, quite different to the first but more an imagining of the titular "Lorn Song":

Love both of these so much. Especially the Khuzait one, feels so fitting to their culture and feel ingame.

Jubal, your Richter Kreugar song has hit the top five DuckDuckGo results!  Of your earlier releases I give the most points to the Calradian songs.

Thanks Tusky!

dubs: Ooh! What search term did you use?
And thank you - I guess the Calradian ones have some consistency as a project which helps a bit.

dubs: Ooh! What search term did you use?
I think it was "Richter Kreugar."  I was more a High Elf (+ Imperial Guard and Tzeench Chaos Space Marines) guy than an Imperial / Vampire Count person myself so I don't know that story.  The Warhammer World is a cool setting, because 15th/16th century Central Europe is cool, even if Games Workshop is run by people with the ethics of a Genoese in the Crimea

Post by: Jubal on November 26, 2020, 09:33:29 AM
The Cursed Company was really a Dogs of War thing (part of the Regiments of Renown supplement, which was great and one of the most characterful bits of Warhammer rules that were current in the years I played the game). And yeah, I quite like Warhammer's aesthetic and use of the pathetic in building a fantasy world.
