1970s-1980s Afrikaner folk nationalistic or patriotically-minded music that I can recall off the top of my head (some are 1970s-1980s covers of much older songs):Got any good recs for these genres?
This is all very interesting. Classical and folk music seem like great options. Do you tend to use more light classical tracks? I feel like Mussorgsky's 'Pictures at an Exhibition'- particularly 'The Great Gate of Kiev' would be a great choice, as would be various national anthems.it's no laughing matter. In the bad times, the junkies and hoodrats and transients were openly defecating and urinating in or near many of the troublesome areas where I ended up having to mount a broadcast speaker unit. Absolutely disgusting subhuman behavior. Piss odor everywhere. They were basically using the entire stretch of parking lot and sidewalk as an open air latrine. I startled at least one of nog into pissing onto his shoes by abruptly switching to this audio track and turning the volume up to max while he was in mid piss.
I wish I had onsite internet access, as I am sure I could have set up something like that complete with mic'ed up camera and media share.
Through trial and error, I ended up gradually purging pretty much all the classical out of the playlists because unless you have a powerful commercial loudspeaker or dedicated outdoor speaker system, the classical will not be able to do a good job of drowning out the hoodrats' portable Bluetooth speakers, which are like the modern equivalent of boomboxes. Just about every hoodrat has some kind of portable speaker device like that.This is all very interesting. Classical and folk music seem like great options.

I feel like you could get a bit of classic rock in there. Perhaps some charity music?
Interesting. Do you have any Edith Piaf in the rotation?Through trial and error, I ended up gradually purging pretty much all the classical out of the playlists because unless you have a powerful commercial loudspeaker or dedicated outdoor speaker system, the classical will not be able to do a good job of drowning out the hoodrats' portable Bluetooth speakers, which are like the modern equivalent of boomboxes.

The only thing that can overpower the hoodrats' preferred hiphop-type music with strong beat and strong lyric component is another type of music with strong beat and strong lyric component. Hence the loading up of the playlists primarily with unhip pop music (has lyrics and beats) and some marching music (has strong beat and sometimes lyric). It's optimal for the music to have a soprano lyrical component, because higher pitch vocals cut through everything else and is acoustically superior in its ability to travel further and retain most of its fidelity over distance and competing noise. Also any lyrical component is usually better than no lyrical component, because the vocals interfere with the hoodrats' ability to talk to one another or talk over the phone within range of the broadcast speaker.
I don't have anything against Edith Piaf, of course she is the great chanteuse of that era and has a very iconic sound. But I probably listened to her classic songs many hundreds of times before, so it would have driven me crazy to hear that playing outside all day too.Interesting.

One of my favorite political shows uses this as intro music- despite no connection to the Foreign Legion.
Sounds like he is not so far from me and in some ways has a more badass setup than me! I have just been stringing together old or refurbished desktop speakers and the odd Bluetooth speaker, so I imagine guitar amps would be pretty good for strong localized coverage. I wish I knew more about audio stuff or had time to learn about audio stuff, otherwise I probably could have done the sound file modification stuff too, and wire together a better setup with some of the more complicated home entertainment speakers I have scrounged up from picking through abandoned storage space. If it's any more complex than an AUX cable and 120V power supply, I'm pretty much lost.I’ve been following this thread since this post was made. Thank you for your contributions. I have a friend who owns a few warehouses in Forney, Texas which is a bit East of Dallas. A few years back, some kids hosted a rave or something in one of the recently abandoned warehouses. Ever since that rave, a bunch of rather unscrupulous types have used the area as a base of operations, even after the warehouse was purchased again. The Forney police are allegedly unwilling to do anything about these people as they are not overtly acting in violence, but overtime, my friend claims that the nogs and their ilk have made a total mess of the surrounding areas. They’ll throw bottles at the buildings, etc., all of which is being actively recorded. Again, no intervention because no harm is being done.
It’s my own speculation that since Forney is an up-and-coming developing city, the city itself is OK to have the miscreants out of the view of the public eye.
The situation became exacerbated recently when my friend found a half dozen spent condoms and feces smeared on the side of his building. Hearing about this, I directed him to this thread. The friend just so happens to be a guitarist and has an interest in metalworking. He liked this thread so much that he has allegedly rigged up 4 huge poles (I don’t know the dimensions off hand, sorry, but only that they’re quite large) and attached some old practice amps to them which are placed around the perimeter of the building.
I don’t have the specifics as to how he’s broadcasting to the amps, but he has had a mixed level of success. He claims to have had the most success just taking samples of Atari game sound effects, ripping them, opening the file in Audacity or similar, increasing the fuck out of the gain, and just letting it fly. Unfortunately, another tenant nearby seems to discard those foam sound isolating earbuds around their property, and they’re reused to combat some of the new noise pollution. A good number of them have dispersed to other adjacent warehouses, so the issue isn’t completely remedied, but the number that used to congregate between his buildings and the original base of operations has decreased significantly.
I’m sure he has seen the suggestions about bagpipes, etc., I’m just not too sure how effective practice amps would be for this exercises as they’re lacking in range. I’ll try to get photos of his setup.
tl;dr - showed friend this thread a while back who was having issues with new intrusive niggos. Friend devised his own solution using this as a baseline. Mixed results as cockroaches are resilient.
edit: I just realized that you may actually be talking about someone who is actually carrying those items. lol, ignore my sperging below.(or better yet, I can see the trespassers is armed, carrying a screwdriver or lead pipe, etc) "
There's maybe 5-6 audio tracks in the playlists that are medieval music. Mostly Crusader songs in Old German or Old French, like the Palastinalied. I believe some of them are polyphonic though, not the monophonic style of Gregorian.Did anybody suggest Gregorian Chant yet? Or Gregorian covers of popular songs?
Never heard of Pack Your Things. I've heard "Vat Jou Goed en Trek, Ferreira" and at one point there were at least 3 different renditions of it on the playlist. I might have trimmed it down to just one or two versions after all this time.Have you heard Pack Your Things and Trek Fereira?
