Felt the need to go back to something more sound driven.

I’ve been learning a lot of new Jazz chords and wondered what they might sound like as pads. I ended up creating a device chain in Ableton Live featuring Alchemy, Omnisphere, and Absynth.

That’s kind of massively overdoing things because any one of those three synths sounds good but it didn’t take me long to find interesting, characteristic, sounds from each of them that blended together nicely and created a good soundscape.

Given the power in those three synths I didn’t feel the need to add much in the way of effects to the output. But I am using several instances of CamelSpace to pan things around in, hopefully, interesting ways. I’ve no headphones at the moment but I hope it could be interesting.

Lastly I added my old favourite, The Finger, on a return track and generated some MIDI to drive it. Then I automate sending some of the dry signal through the effect to periodically create a glitchy topping.

The whole lot gets fed through Audio Damage Eos to create a space big enough for it breath in.

I've got sharks swimming through a sunken wreck. Clever and weirdly atmospheric!

The more I hear this, the more inspired I am to do something really sinister.

Chilling and charismatic. Love all the different elements that force unsettling images in to my mind. Dark steps down shiney corridors, naked lightbulbs swinging from decaying ceilings... Okay, maybe I don't "love" that, but I'm definitely impressed by it! I think the Brothers Quay will be after you.
