Never Tell

Honestly I have no idea where this came from or how.

I was messing with Omnisphere patches and came across a lovely, flutey, breathy sound that put me in mind of the scenes inside the monolith at the end of 2001. I setup a Rytme pattern to play it.

Then I came across this buzzing insectivoid noise that got into my head, so I use Rytme to layer this in.

Then I came across this twisted, febrile, sound like my mind being stretched to fit over a Mobius strip. Elysium turned out to be better for generating a pattern for this.

But it needed something rhythmic to hang on. I used Stylus RMX to generate a beat. Using chaos designer and an edit group to echo the snare only. I couldn’t decide if it sounded better in front or behind. I’m not sure how well that part works.

I’ve used a little bit of Audio Damage Replicant and Expert Sleepers Little Spacey but they’re (for me at least) relatively subtle effects on this track.

In a sense this track is a bit of a sketch really. I had it in mind to bounce the Omnisphere parts and chop them up and re-use them to create a better arrangement and the beat clearly needs work. But it’s more my style right now to move on.

Let me know what you think!

also excellent… My favourite tracks of yours seem to occupy a space somewhere between the artificial/synthetic and the organic.

Suspenceful…with ambient and cinematic overtones. One to really get the imagination working.


Atmospheric with a world beauty.

Eerie. (Reminds me a little of the soundtrack of Diablo…or rather it’s in that ilk. Very cool pc game…the music really made it for me).
