Solo Bass Word Association – Help, Please!

February 22nd, 2010 | 7 Comments | Categories: Music News |

As y’all know, I’m a big big fan of Bandcamp it is, at the moment, the best self-service MP3 sales platform on the entire internetz.

They’ve just implemented the option to have artists, albums and tracks tagged with genre, location and associated words… Making it searchable.

So, this is where you come in – I’m interested in what you associate with my music when you listen to it. It can be a genre description, or a feeling, or something far more random. The floor is wide open.

So, if you would be so kind as to have a listen via the MP3s page, or Spotify, or last.fm (or indeed your own MP3 collection, if you’ve already demonstrated your cool, your exquisite taste and your generosity by downloading them all 😉 ) and let me know what comes to mind. Please either post it here in the comments on this post, or on Twitter with the hashtag #SBStags

(of course, if you’re a last.fm user, you’re most welcome to cross-post the tags over there…)

So, let your imagination run – let’s see if we come up with a mental map of the music that means something.. or just a load of random stuff that helps no-one… It’s over to you :)

    slow, sumptuous, voluptuous and sexy

    Actually, those are the kind of questions that come up in my world fairly often. Trying to categorise the uncategorisable (sp?) is too often a requirement.

    Across the board one-word descriptions I’ve used have included:
    Aggressive, Angry, Atmospheric, Awesome, Bittersweet, Bleak, Brash, Bright, Brooding… (etc).

    I’ve bought your album and I don’t think many across the board descriptions apply except for:
    Atmospheric, Dreamy, Elaborate, Gentle, Lush, Mellow, Poignant, Rich, Silky, Slick and Versatile.

    There are other descriptions I’d apply to individual works that would include Emotional, Inspirational, Melancholy, Sad and Thoughtful.

    This might not be what you’re looking for, but I hope it helps.

      Thanks Brennig, very interesting! I’m always fascinated by how other people interpret the emotion in my music, so that list of words makes me smile :)

  • Chris

    These are not pertaining to any particular album or song:

    Atmospheric, laid back, introspective, thoughtful, relaxing.

    Thanks for the great music.

    Enveloping, music to work to, calming, relaxing, cocooning, meditative, thoughtful, provoking – I was listening to behind every word while I was writing a document – got distracted by the tweet of course!
