Doctor, I'm Not Ill (Track 03 from I AM ALTERED ALBUM - Galaegala and Nickillus)

Nickillus wrote on 3/17/2016, 4:36 AM

I AM ALTERED - is a double album, a first collaboration between GalaeGala and Nickillus.  It tackles the issue of mental health.

We wanted to tell in music, the thin line that divides the being of sound mind and not being.
A musician now bereft of compositional ideas, turns in on himself and slips into alcohol and drug use.  Over time he becomes ill with schizophrenia, but a psychologist, a fan of his work, is determined to lead him back to health.
It takes a long time, but with intensive treatment, he finally does it.
The most rewarding thing for both protagonists is the return of a burning desire in the musician to make music again.

Track 03 deals with a lack of 'insight' within the patient about their illness.


GalaeGala - Korg 01 wfd - VSTI Korg Workstation - Korg Fm7 - 8
Alchemy - Electra x Tone- Tone Gladiator - DN-e1 Magix

Nickillus - Magix - Piano One, Upright Bass, Analog Synth, Revolta 2, DN-e1, Space Pad, Beatbox, LoopMaker
Other - Iris 2, Curve 2.5, Alchemy (Dream Voices), VoicePlex, Revitar 2.01, DSK Dynamic Guitar, EZ Poly, Addictive Drums 2

My sincere thanks go out to Galaegala for affording me the opportunity to collaborate with such a stalwart of the community here.  He is a delight to work with.  His own gorgeous, ambient sounds and my own less refined offerings provided him plenty of challenges in this collaboration.  I hope you'll agree he has done a wonderful job - as usual.

C'est une belle collaboration avec Franco qui est comme tu dis un pilier dans la communauté et les collaborations avec lui ne peuvent être que très bien.

C'est une très bonne composition très spatiale, relaxante et à partir de : 41 seconde je reconnais un sons de synthé qui est arpégé qu'a utilisé Jean Michel Jarre dans une de ses musiques, il me semble que dans son album : "Equinoxe" à moins que ce soit dans :" Oxygène". et à partir de 3 minutes 20 secondes il y a un son qui ressemble à un "Sonar" mais transformé bien sûr qui lui, a été utilisé par "Craftwerk et j'en suis sûr aussi car j'ai leur album Vinyl qui s'appelle : Radio Activity, ce son est dans cet album,

Pour mon goût personnel, le son précédent qui se répète pas mal de temps, je l'aurais transformé au fur et à mesure en changeant par exemple sa modulation ou autres, cela aurait été mieux je pense et il paraitrait moins répétitif.

Autrement, à part cette petite remarque c'est parfait, comme d'habitude, c'est une musique que j'aime et que j'ai mis dans mes favoris,

Bravo !

Hi Nick & Franco:

Once again, the two divergent styles of music come together to produce an intriguing blend of gorgeous sounds.  This tells me that as long as musicians have the same creative juices flowing, wonderful things are bound to happen. 

What makes this piece interesting and pleasing to listen, is the sheer unpretentiousness of the music.  In other words, not going for cheesy, glossy effects for the mere sake of it. 

As I mentioned in my comment on your last collaboration, you gentlemen work quite well together; achieving the most out of your disparate talents and delivering a joint effort that rewards the listener.

Kudos guys!



Ciao Nick & Franco:

Ancora una volta, le due divergenti stili di musica che si uniscono per produrre un mix intrigante di splendidi suoni. Questo mi dice che fintanto che i musicisti hanno la stessa creatività succhi di frutta che scorre, le cose meravigliose sono tenuti ad accadere.

Ciò che rende questo pezzo interessante e piacevole da ascoltare, è la pura modestia della musica. In altre parole, non sta per kitsch, effetti lucidi per il semplice gusto di farlo.

Come ho detto nel mio commento sulla tua ultima collaborazione, signori lavorare molto bene insieme; ottenere il massimo dal vostro disparati talenti e la consegna di un impegno comune che premia l'ascoltatore.

Complimenti ragazzi!!!

hello, a really nice piece of music. great.

Former user wrote on 3/18/2016, 4:11 PM

the intro looks great, is well prepared , you may feel a constant tension since the drums begin (or much earlier) , is endnote that the patient is confused, or debate this whole issue of his mind , good work

Hi Nick, Franco,
This song has left me speechless, is really amazing, these musical atmospheres are unique, and I find that they are in the great music of the professional level.
Whenever you know impress the listener.
Applause, applause, applause.

Hello Gentlemen

I love when there is a story behind the music.  It makes the journey easier to follow and at least for me, the story provides a starting point for the trip

 Up until 3:30, I pictured a man meandering around a rather small room, wandering aimlessly and completely devoid of emotions, thoughts ideas.....At 3:30, he sits in the center of the room in a daze. He is bewildered and unsure if why he is there and why he feels empty and hollow.  His passion for life is gone.  (aha!  the music is gone but he does not know this.  I think he will rediscover it before all is said and done).

Thank you for the map you have presented so the listener can follow the story line from start to finish.  I await the next installment.


PS this is the second time I have written this and I really, really hope this doesn't disappear this time when I hit SEND

bella collaborazione, ormai la coppia si è affermata, complimenti, saluti da tgfmusica, Gianfranco, ciao

martinheeremans wrote on 3/20/2016, 3:36 PM

This is another really good collaboration from you too.

Is there a completion date for the Album,

I can see the amount of work in htis, and it is massive.

Nickillus, using your trademark bass and high notes I enjoy, you have again, teamed them very well with Galaegala sound.

I have to say, there is a full on story amidst all these tracks, instrumentally, such a feat deserves recognition.

Well done bro's, this is awesome!

Woderful track !!! the concept album is formidable !!!! ciao da sandro

Sandro Glavina is an italian composer, named L'Uomo e L'Ombra. The choice of the name derives from the title of the album "L'uomo e l'ombra" of the band "Abstract Music Nuova Esistenza", an experimental group founded by Sandro Glavina together with his friends in the mid-70s.

In the period 2009-2022, L'Uomo e L'Ombra has done 84 albums. The compositions of Sandro Glavina are partly influenced by progressive rock. Sandro has developed a personal style with many experimentations and actualizations. He offers music beyond borders by intertwining different styles in crossover with each other. Prog, psychedelia, classical, post-rock, jazz, pop are some of the influences that dissolve in ambient atmospheres, citations of contemporary music and minimalist nuances. Sandro Glavina aka L'Uomo e L'Ombra plays the music using VSTI synthesizers, keyboards and adds some loops. Sandro isn't a professional musician, composes and plays music just for fun, but his works reach a good outcome, pleasant to listen. L'UOMO E L'OMBRA

Superb production. Absolutely superb. The soundscape and use of stereo to enhance the atmosphere is brilliant.

I particularly like the change to the darker tones. Gives a nice uneasy vibe. Ill at ease. 

Superb stuff.

I know nothing about music. Only listened .. Using technology also makes possible for me to be able to make music.

  I am also into photography amateur.

I'm not here for stars score but coment with advice for improvement of my music.

at my coment on music of others, I remain honest. this must be mutual .

I give my voice just as public and not as someone who knows something from music.

 I'm open to all criticism. I want to learn something
