Session 1310 (Owigin Lodge)
For October 2013, Svelte did a traditional Svelte-o-ween sesh. Please to enjoy:
Covers sesh with special guest artist, Brother X.
This is a follow up to our egg-themed session. Now we know which came first.
Svelte-o-ween is baaaaaaaaaack!
This is a session about eggs.
After a hiatus of almost exactly a year, Svelte marks their triumphant return with the perennial favuorite, Svelte-o-ween VI! This year we made a musical about the Donner Party. Enjoy.
It's Svelte-o-ween! YAY!
OK - so for this session we made 24 songs. Michael did his usual thing of making a bunch of loops first. But instead of combining 4 or 5 loops into one song, we decided to make a different song for each loop. That's why there's batches of songs that have similar-sounding loops in them. Think of it as a sort of theme and variations. Or don't.
If you'd like to download a zip file of all 24 songs and throw them into iTunes or what have you, CLICK HERE.
Here is our "holiday" session which is strangely devoid of holiday songs.
(This song features an introduction by Jonathan Frakes, as well as field recrodings of real Yeti!)
(Or "Stuff seen on the side of the road while stuck in traffic on I-5")
Here is our traditional Svelte-o-ween session, featuring samples from old sound effects records. SCARY!
This song employs a track from the classic Disney record "Chilling Thrilling Sounds of the Haunted House" which Mike has had memorized since he was a wee bairn... the original track is here: The Birds
This piece is intended to be part of an album that will be played at an art gallery show featuring the "Monster Ballads" paintings by Isabel Samaras
Special guest this month! Christopher Lowell did a session with Michael!
After a long pause, Miss Svelte is back with a two song session about people who died. We think.
Pink Clouds is our song about Jimmy Carter, a fellow we knew in high school, and
James Brown is about another guy you might know.
After constant brow-beating from Nicholas I posted the story and MP3s from this session to the ICS Forum. So you can read about it and listen to it by clicking on this HYPERTEXT LINK.
This is the beginnings of a new Svelte opera, whose plot was devised via the "Hat Trick" game. Stay tuned for further installments.
You can read more details about this session and how we created the plot by reading the post about it on the ICS FORUM.
It's an evil clock face, dammit! Only Bunny got it. Time is our enemy, you see.

Mike and Steven did a multi-media swap session this time. For the first half of the day, Steven created 10 songs while Michael created 10 illustrations. Then, half-way through the day we swapped...and Steven made 10 more songs inspired by Mike's 10 initial illustrations. And Mike made 10 more illustrations inspired by Steven's 10 initial songs.
For this session, BroSteve and BroMike (hereafter referred to as BS
Brother Stephen and Brother Michael did these 2gether...
Intro lyrics: "In the year 3000 robot scout ships discovered a fragmented archive of musics from an ancient, lost civilization from a people who called themselves hu-men. We've attempted to reconstruct what these musics may have sounded like from each significant cultural epoch. Enjoy and be enlightened!"
This is the session where Mike and I did 20 songs (our first time!)...here's a few choice selections...
