Agreed with John-O. The dark continent stuff was really enjoyable and especially loved the description. Didn't understand how to download the music (maybe I have to be a member on that website first?) but I don't mind going to the page multiple times and hitting the play button.

Thanks for sharing.

Brilliant stuff, which I would be more than happy to pay for.

Once again, I am astounded by the level of creativity and talent displayed by a member of this community.

Amazing stuff, Lucas! Really mood evoking! This stuff is as good as any modern exotica that I've heard from any 'band' out there. I can't believe you played EVERYTHING yourself too! ...actually I can... Lucas Vigor, a true musical genius!

Thanks guys! All the positive comments sure mean a lot!

This stuff I record is a labor of love for me….I don’t intend to ever sell or make a CD of it, because the stuff is too raw, too unpolished…not worthy of sale.

My problem has always been a lack of funds. If you saw what type of equipment I was forced to use to record my stuff, you would be shocked. Analog, tape, only 4 tracks, etc….

While most of my peers have extensive home recording equipment, which is computer based and of studio quality, I have always done my stuff the really old fashioned way: Real instruments (for the most part) recorded on the cheapest of recording devices. There is no sequencer, no computer, no computer samples….if I wanted the sound of a bass drum or finger cymbal, well, I get my mic and record it. Sure, I do use keyboards, but I try as much as possible to add in real instruments. If you are hearing strings, rest assured there is a violin and/or viola overdubbed in there over the synth strings. The percussion sounds are real instruments..snare, cymbals, talking drum, dumbek, congas, bongos., shakers, etc.. some things I also have used are bamboo flutes (bansuri) and other exotic string instruments such as a king david’s harp or an Oud I borrowed.

The disclaimer is that my stuff is recorded super lo-fi. That has it’s plusses and minuses, of course..if I had all the deluxe computer based software, it would be no problem to download some exotic drum sample that I did not create myself, and layer it in my music….but that’s not how I roll….! This stuff was just examples of me recording in the quite part of the night some type of real instrument, and hoping it comes out all right!

Once I am done, there are no redos, no fixing mistakes…I have to go with first takes pretty much…and so this stuff is not perfect, and hopefully this explains why I am not selling my stuff. In order to record this way, I have to have the entire song already completed, in my mind. I have to know what I want, and find the shortcuts to get there based on the limitations of my equipment. In some cases, I actually write the music out as an orchestral score ahead of time )Like on “The Dark Continent Suite”…

So that’s my story and I am sticking to it! I sincerely hope you enjoy the sounds of Lucas Vigor!

Ucayali!

What's the meaning of that word? It's a cover, right? Who did the original?
Sounds like TIKI TECHNO. Hipnotic, rich in leyers... Fun stuff! The flute!
I like it mucho! I can see myself go primitive with music like that...

Lucas, you should listen to "El Guincho"... a young guy from Islas Canarias... I would descrive him as Aphex Twin a la Tropical. Quite succesfull too!

Back to your music...

Why, thank you Ken! I tried to go a little darker with this sound...to me, it is exotic...maybe not exotica...because exotica, while at times has some dark themes, is generally pretty light hearted! (After all, we all know they have hammond organs in the jungles!) but my stuff is perhaps a little scarier...I guess more from the hollywood tarzan side of exotica then anything else!

And not to give you a swelled head, but I take my inspiration from many sources...and there were several of your paintings that came to mind while creating "The Dark Continent"....(paintings I wish I could afford to take off your hands! ha ha!)Most notably, there was one I believe you called "the drummer" (maybe not sure of that title?)

Glad you are enjoying it, bro!
