About Me: My real name is Victor Sabula, but Victim Longmont just has a better ring to it. When it comes to copyright stuff, please credit Victor Sabula. You'll find that I typically start sessions with a demo that includes guitars, bass and drums. The guitars are usually the only things that stay, while everything else is open for adaptation - although I will add notes where I think a certain riff, melody or part is essential. Influences: Wire, KISS, The Clash, Sonic Youth, Pere Ubu, The Fall, Meat Puppets, Bauhaus, Joy Division, Tones On Tail, Love And Rockets, New Order, Led Zeppelin, Syd Barrett, Concrete Blonde, Redd Kross, The Cult, PJ Harvey, Interpol, Pixies, The Cure, Echo & The Bunnymen, The Gun Club, Red Lorry Yellow Lorry, Skin Yard, King Crimson, Roy Harper, Brian Eno, Harold Budd, Cocteau Twins, Husker Du, Roxy Music, Gary Numan, Deconstruction, Devo, Robyn Hitchcock, Minutemen, Mission Of Burma, The Glove.Sounds Like: Wire, Sonic Youth, KISS, Afghan Whigs, The Clash, The Fall, Husker Du, and Interpol.Talents: My main instruments are electric and acoustic six-string guitar. I also play electric bass, electronic drums and keyboards. I have been recording, mixing and producing my own and other indie projects for the past ten years.Bands: Bands I am or have been in include Bullets&Bubblegum, Tamerlane, Oyster Lucy, The Salad Years and Edifice Wrecks.Online Collaboration: I aim to use Kompoz for both private and public sessions. I lean toward All Rights Reserved and Creative Commons Attribution - Noncommercial - No Derivative Works 3.0 Unported licenses.How I Work: I plan to use Kompoz to record long distance with some long time friends in a project called Tamerlane (www.myspace.com/thetamerlane) - we all used to live in Cleveland (OH) - but now I live in Portland (OR) - but we still love working on songs together. I also plan to use Indaba Music to seek out musicians to help complete songs that I continually churn out as part of Bullets&Bubblegum (www.myspace.com/bulletsbubblegum). And, I look forward to creating a whole new project/online band to collaborate on all my other musical doodlings. I can't typically offer to pay anyone, nor do I expect to get paid for my contributions to others' sessions. What I can offer, and how I'd like to work with others is by sharing songwriting credits and royalties. Personally, I plan to take the songs from my sessions and submit them for reviews, distribute them digitally and attempt to market them through TAXI or other means. Therefore, any royalties would be split according to a given proportional songwriting credit agreement. Typically this means (and this is how I have worked in the past with all bands I've been in) that if there ends up being four people who contribute to a song, then the songwriting credits and royalties get split four ways. More than anything I thrive on the process of creating, writing, arranging, recording and producing music!
