Issue #57

My biggest project (song / visual Isolation Tank X) is nearly finished at around 91%. I'm just waiting on a new bass guitar to fill in the gaps of the song and a few more things to finish the video. I've had numerous obstacles like any of my other projects like getting a section of the song after hours of editing just the way I want then the program crashes and have to start all over. And then it won't sound the same as it did no matter what. I had recorded earlier this year a 3 hour demo of the song in one recorded take but it turned out boring and kinda sloppy at times. So that won't be nothing to this slightly longer new version. ItX has multiple dimensions of sound to it so I have several versions that exist. And no corners are cut in making and editing this one.

To keep the ball rolling in the meantime I've unleashed 2 more visually enhanced video albums "Lost Paradise", and "The Chimney Creeper". If you already saw them before they were reuploaded the only big difference is the dimensions were changed as I recently upgraded my pc and discovered most of my videos play on it in 4x3 instead of the more popular 16x9 format so I also re-edited "The Weeds Of Our Society" album to those dimensions with a few added enhancements. Also many of my videos on vimeo have had the thumbnails mysteriously altered to weird and random things (on search engines only) so that's been another nightmare for me to look forward to deal with and try to fix. So it's likely ITX will be done around September now.

Also the Isolation Tank X video / song is nearly finished with only around 40 - 50 hours of work to go so will most likely be done sometime in July or early August.. It will feature tons of new effects and new footage and the song itself has loads of composition added to give multiple layers of sound..

My upcoming project ITX has been put on the back burner for a bit so I have time to collect clips, audio samples and ideas. Until then I've been turning some of my more recent albums into full feature videos. The two latest editions are "Confined Rewind", and "Reason To Ride." As well a new one will soon be finished early next week with all new footage, imagery, and sound from the original versions. Also I wouldn't recommend to play most of my music on any headphones as they weren't done in a sound studio. The best quality is on basic players if not convenient for watch on pc try portable devices instead. :>)

Due to losing a bunch of files from a flash drive crashing I had to start all over on my ITX video which won't be done til atleast June now. A sneak peak of some of the clips as stills can be found at https://scrap-rabbit-x.deviantart.com/gallery/ the remakes of some of the footage isn't as good as the originals now lost. To fill space until then I made the visually enhanced "Stuck In A Trap" video album. Also a series of homemade bootlegs that were put together in 2014 are also now on hase chaser.

Stuck In A Trap (album) includes tracks "Separate Ways" & "Storm-Raid"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D8roAX0sbbs

-liner notes... the visuals on the album were meant to be experimental with where I can fit a camera like under a train, smoke effects, under water, etc. and so on. Only some of the ideas came into play as others weren't able to be made for it though it turned out as one of my best visual works this year so far.

Also on a side note. The new lyrics to Isolation Tank X is now on this site you can check out (link below)

A couple new video albums have surfaced on my main video channel recently with new effects added "Arachnid", "The Collector Of Lost Souls" and the 'Crankshaft Elevator Muzak (re-edit).' Plus a few new instrumentals which are basically to fill space between work on my latest project. (Isolation Tank X) a 3 hour long song and visual that will be featured and hopefully finished sometime in May. I re-wrote from the original version with extended lyrics and unlike the original will have hundreds of audio edits added. As soon as it's done it will also have the lyrics online as well. This tracks concept will be revealed in the description when it's uploaded. The frame rate may be decreased due to the amount of hours it will take to save. I'm still experimenting with what will work best :>) Much of what will be in the video will be a tank grill I found on the curb and will do stuff to it throughout as well as other clips and have a timer running throughout the duration of the song with various interludes to break down the monotony. There's still hundreds of hours of work to be done so I'm hoping May will be when it's finished in time for my next Monthly Article.

I've done a few overlong recordings this past week first a 2 hour track that turned out a bit off due to rough vocals, then a bit later I made a 3 hour 15 minute take on the track Isolation Tank which has 28 pages of lyrics. After playing through it it was tedious to listen to so I've decided to re-write the song with new lyrics and do a different recording in the near future for it with extensive edits to the music. The basic concept is a song with thoughts of isolation living in a metal tank (mind set) and various expansions of longing. Also some clips filmed on an sq12 and a timer will be added to measure the duration of the new video. The original also had a vhs in the background playing to create more audio effects I created called isolation back in the day with bizarre footage throughout. It's not certain how long or when this new version will be done but it is expected to be a vast improvement. Also an hour long recording called "Traffic Jam" was also made with the concept of being stuck at a stoplight where it's green for a few seconds and stuck on red for ages before turning green for a few seconds to proceed. It's really just a background track put on Storm Seizure and added voices would've helped the song sound better. The trouble is my overlong songs get annoying after a time so it's not recommended to listen intentively or in one straight shot, rather they are just background tracks done as a musical challenge.

Also due to the weather I've had to pause working on the next video album. Imminence and Re-warped (2 EP's in 1) surfaced in the past month also.

Happy 2018. So another year has come to an end. '17 wasn't a very good year for me. I set out numerous tapes, videos, performances, and made albums available in physical format, as well as an extensive new photo series. This year so far a few albums are surfacing in physical format including "Chimney Creeper, Confined Rewind, & Orange Night". another bit of info, a DVD release is also planned to surface sometime this year. The reason for the wait is some complications have slowed down the project. Also "Formations" album has been gone through and improved with audio and visual features on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=az-Cdh7rOvA 

A recently uncovered Scrap Rabbit tape was converted and spans 2 hours 4 minutes long. After conversion it was re-edited with overlapping parts it's the longest known Scrap Rabbit tape so far all the audio is featured with about 40 minutes of overlapped parts to make for an interesting collision of sound. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XmASM80ZBuo&t=45s

There's some more albums available on Kunaki with new material and improvements from the original including "Arachnid" (with new artwork), "Lost Paradise", "Wilterland", "Ready To Go", "First Of My Kind", "DDATRK", "Reason To Ride", "Formations", "The Weeds Of Our Society", "The War Machine", "The Thrills Of Hills", & "Instrumentality 1-3". one thing I wanted was to add more artwork but am limited to 1 slick only. That's one of the downsides otherwise they are good collectibles in the Scrap Rabbit arsenal. There's also new projects going down including some new and previous works added.

For the first time you can now own physical copies of some of my latest releases. I normally prefer physical copies as opposed to digital myself as I still buy albums regularly. So this week features 4 new albums with slick glossy packaging "Broken, Link To Chaos, Stuck In A Trap, and Abyss Center" now with improved music and artwork. With new spice added. After I got my copies I played all 4 in under 4 hours to make sure everything was good. For best quality play on a basic radio CD player. Out of the new releases this week the best has to be Broken (inside). These new albums feature tracks from 2-3 previously made albums combined into 1.

Since youtube is getting rid of video editor I've had to jump the gun on some of my projects for making edited albums and putting together tapes and projects. So a load of tapes have now surfaced and been put out this month. Some parts of The War Machine videos weren't done the way I originally intended but since this may be my last chance to make the album I had to put it out as is. Also the vimeo exclusive performance can now be seen in it's entirety as well.

Warped 2 is now available on bandcamp as well as a video for it called "can't see through" the effects took hours to make, the 2014 track Keyflow that was created as a vimeo exclusive at the time with special effects took even longer just to save the file.  SR tries to make due with what's available in access to create with. As well "Saw Section" the latest video of the series was made from recycled clips. I've also created some new DVDs. Still the music video collection has had more bugs to work out so no one will be able to have a copy yet. (As I'm picky about the details) 3 new EPS from Awsive Osive (side project) have also been put out this month called "Bar-code", Collision, and Going Nowhere" and a new one is in the works.

Yet Another new release from Scrap Rabbit is available now marking 70 SR releases on bandcamp. This time it's an EP, called "Warped". Easily accessible with a mixed arrangement of audio. With this release there'll be a time lapse until the next album.

The 4th and maybe final? season of the Stoner Show (comic) is in the works this month. Not before going through and improving parts one more time on the first 3 volumes and putting them together.

(featured video of the month) Reason To Ride (album) all the 'rtr's' were recorded in the order they appear on the album with other tracks in between. So you can hear the progress of the song as it's being done over.

(side note) I've bought some new software for burning dvds as I was having glitches with my other software so I hope my video project (Scrap Rabbit - music videos vol 1) DVD will be back in progress. It's due to problems with waiting for things to fall into place and various other things I have to wait to make this series turn out the way I want. I've tried some various DVDs in the past but I always want to improve parts to make better. Several trial discs were made. And this still a homemade series I can only make a few copies anyway. I'd like to have a collection made when things fall into place eventually.

Conquer This! (scraps) is now available on bandcamp featuring unused material and was created in 2014 as part of a series of 1 0f 1 copies. I find it's more listenable than my first 3 albums. Also it's been made into a video as well.

Also this year I've converted over 100 SR demo tapes so far from a battery powered converter. Still have stacks to go through and have been working on each day which will be featured as 2017 the most extensive release of music for Scrap Rabbit. A lot of the material was somewhat lofi for different reasons but have found hidden gems here and there so it's been a worthwhile experience and some tapes are quite a unique journey in their own way. Hase Chaser features that stuff.

Again brand new pics are under the (side show) gallery under photo tab. "The Collector Of Lost Souls (unlimited version)" is now on youtube featuring all 14 tracks, 3 with added effects, and 6 exclusive tracks added all in one extended video!

Scrap rabbit is in the process of converting full tapes on a regular basis throughout this year. Also a new music video "Strung Along" marks 182 of my series. A couple years ago I came up with the idea of making a numbered series of videos 1 for every day of the year so the series would be limited to 365. if that were to happen, it won't be done for several more years. 

In other news some new additions have been added to my discography set "Imminence" and "Tape Demos" on bandcamp, see homepage to look at the full collection.

(my first band) Awsive Osive now marks it's 10 years of existence in 2017. So I've reissued 2 Awsive Osive tapes on my main video channel though the quality of sound was clearer on my new device I used, I've had glitch problems in conversion on every tape and I wanted these tapes to be in mint order. Last year I was disappointed with the problems from a previous converter that was so distorted sounding I ended up deleting some of the material. So it's a work in progress. Scrap Demos being a third AO tape can be heard on Hase Chaser.

A new album from Awsive Osive is available on bandcamp called "the remaker'' features remakes of some of my early compositions. Also Scrap Rabbit has a new album called "Morning Swirls" featuring tracks like Hase Chaser. My channel of the same name is in the works of posting many of my early tapes (mostly from 2012) also a 113 track super sampler is on yt featuring tracks spanning all 7 years of Scrap Rabbit's existence in one half hour video. Also on rabbitcanghost the video clip "Deceased Decrease" from an Isolation tank project has been added for my main channel.

This being a new year I'd like to see it as a new beginning. 2016 was an ok year for Scrap Rabbit. I made a handful of new download albums and created a series of video albums, my others going track by track and then putting the whole of each on storm seizure. Then with the last segment of the year picked out a few forgotten outtakes to make a free release on bandcamp. So far this year I've continued to work on "hase chaser" channel currently and plan to add some rare new material almost daily while going in order of discography leaving out the warped audio scraps. And a best of (vol. 2) video on rabbitcanghost. Also this marks 10 years now since starting Awsive Osive so have plans for releasing material from then is soon to be in the works. Below is links to a couple of the video albums.
