I see someone in my area (besides me of course) wearing the Hi, How Are You shirt! I have never in my life talked to anyone in person that is a fan about Daniel's music and whatnot so I thought that was pretty cool cus normally anyone I talk to about music doesnt know of him. haha I was eating at some place and when the fellow walked in I locked right onto that shirt HA.

For some reason this made me happy  grin

As far as I am aware Daniel recorded mainly on little cassette recorders, similar to the external decks people used with a ZX Spectrum computer. I think he did a primitive type of overdubbing, recording one tape, then playing it back over the loudspeaker while recording on another machine (John Lennon did this for many of his home demos from the mid-60's onwards). This kind of approach could create a lot of "room sound" which could be quite reverb like in it's ambiance, especially if Daniel was bouncing tapes several times over.

I tried to recreate this kind of effect in the introduction to 'The Angel and Daniel Johnston - Live at the Union Chapel' film by playing crowd noise over loudspeakers and recording it onto a tape recorder. I do not know if anybody got that when they saw it though...

ahhhh I see overdubbing! haha very simple and effective and I feel I should of known that its called overdubbing haha.Anyways thanks for replying to my question Rob means alot buddy and sorry it took me so long to read/reply.I have been so darn busy with my job :Q(

Well see I see both sides cus I myself have my illnesses and I have done somethings that didnt make much sense and yes it did effect people I didnt even know and yes I paid for it! Daniel paid for his mistake and Im very sure he feels horrible about it cus I know I feel horrible about what I have done (and always will) in the past cus of my illnesses.But they still shouldnt dwell on it for the rest of their lifes cus they are not going to be happy that way and everytime they think of her they are only going to have bad memorys and hatred and thats not what they want Im sure.Im not saying forget about what happened though just dont dwell on that one moment in time for the rest of your life.I think the replys to the original post by some of the fellows above have some good points also!

Damnit I wish I heard of Daniel Johnston sooner cus his music really means alot to me!
7  General Discussion / Fan Forums / Daniel's recording method question on: May 10, 2009, 09:33:15 AM
Well as we all know Daniel recorded lo-fi recordings but I was wondering if someone could explain or expand a bit more on "how" he did it.I know its a dumb question and I even think the docu kinda explained the way he recorded but I kinda need a bit more info about the lo-fi........Im just very curious.One reason Im very curious is I listen to the song "despair came knocking" and it sounds like a reverb effect is on the guitar but I dont think he ever used effects.The only thing I can think is that he recorded that song in his bathroom or something.I know I make music and I guess I should know about this stuff but in all real honesty I know nothing of recording or anything cus I have learned every little thing I know by either asking questions (like this) or just doing it.I really love the lo-fi sound so I was just wondering how its done.

thanks for your time

i heard Rocket Ship in Futurama: Bender's Game  grin

HA I thought that was a Daniel Johnston song!That movie was on comdey channel not to long ago so I watched it and hear that song and said to myself "damn that song sounds familiar".

Anyways at the end of the movie "the sasquatch dumpling gang" they play a cover version of the song "Go"

11  NOT Daniel Johnston / Outsider Art / "the human noise experiment" on: February 27, 2009, 05:12:12 AM
well the title says it all! I was able to buy new recording equipment at a good price *smiles proud* and now I can do stuff I couldnt do before so YAY! basically "the human noise experiment" is me making noise with my mouth haha yes that might turn you off but it turned out very ambient and dark and I would just like some feedback.Go here to hear it


also if you would like to listen to my other new ones which are live instrumentions with most of the stuff I bought at thrift stores lately with alot of effects it would be greatly appreciated.I have been doing ALOT of experimenting lately with my new recording equipment and I can do alot with it cuz it makes it alot easier to record live then my old equipment.On the player the ones Im talking about are 1. 2. & 3. which are the numbers of each song on the player.But if you perfer the song titles 1."lo fi depression" 2."noise pollution?" 3."the human noise experiment"

of course the other ones can be found at www.myspace.com/rustedsquare also :Q)

thanks to anyone that actually listens and gives me feedback!


ps.Im still very new to all of this sooooo what I do is basically very minimalist so dont go into this thinking o boy this is going to be great haha and also Im could be using the wrong terms for what Im doing but to me thats what I would call it.Basically I have no clue what Im doing and just do it and figure things out later haha I learn by making mistakes and stuff like that ect ect. I also add ALOT of effects and I played everything you hear myself!

did you mean to have them so fast? If so you made an alvin and the chipmonk Daniel Johnston classic! But for real I dont think you meant for that to happen cuz I had that happen to me on myspace awhile.It sounds find on your end and at the right speed but then you upload it and myspace makes it a alvin and the chipmonks song.

so ummm is that meant or is it the same myspace problem I had? (Im going with the myspace problem)
