another upbeat number from the House of Traps
well, i suppose it's dark ambient-ish... but don't let that put you off.
it's the first thing i've done in reaper since switching from live.
i hope you enjoy it.

Beautiful amorphous sound shifting, and those great little noise beats, everything tied nicely together with the relentless pounding of the kick. Nice change of pace and very much enjoyed over here. Thanks Neil!

Very dark indeed
It created visions of somebody running happily through a delicate field of daises, only to then be pursued by a herd of rusty robots with dubious intentions.

very nice. really enjoyed the contrasting moods and the subtle ways in which you brought elements in and out of the piece. i recall making music that sounded sort of like this a while back and it was very difficult to find that balance between too much going on and not enough. you've struck the right balance.

This begins with a fairly chilling soundscape which was later hijacked by a lumbering giant with a big drum, exhorting his buddies to join him in raiding the defenceless village of Poik. The locals never stood a chance. As the dust settles, a scene of desolation is slowly revealed before I adjourn to the fridge for a cold one.
Nice work Neil.

Wow, it really is like a movie, but without the video. Very haunting, yet intriguing.

Dense and dark, shifting landscape, one's feet aren't to be trusted. Lovely unloveliness. Thank you.

thank you all for listening and for your kind words
@D - lovely unloveliness
yeah, i think my head is in a pretty shadowy place.
@seismic - the village of Poik was asking for it.
@jopy - i've really been enjoying the automation in reaper. i love having everything in control to the nth degree. how the hell did i manage without bezier curves?
@iDumi - i'm glad it sounds like a movie with no video. that makes me happy
thanks again folks,

very full! Pleasent sounds.
I love the atmosphere you put together here
It would work very well in certain movies.
For some reason Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind came to my mind.

thanks for listening Remmie
i've not heard of that film, i'll keep an eye out for it.

liking the didgiri sounds you are coming up with, some great metallic washes. Don't like the lofi crackle, but that is just me.
Cool stuff. Like the ancient primal feel you have been getting into your tunes I have listened too this last while.

Darkly atmospheric. I like.
- Tue Nov 08, 2011 12:14 pm
Dark indeed. Very 'space' dark.
- Wed Nov 09, 2011 4:20 pm
very cool. shifting sounds and moods

From the get-go, I like the overall 'texture' of this. Did you mention in the Effects forum that you were using the Waves tape emulator on your material?
Is there also a vinyl emulator on there?
- Thu Nov 10, 2011 1:46 am
thanks for listening everybody
yeah i use waves mpx quite a bit. it can sound crap if you go mental with it and you have to watch your gain staging, but i wouldn't be without it. i use Tone Boosters' Sonitex for noise, hiss, crackle, hum and the multitude of other tricks it can get up to. i highly recommend checking that out if you haven't already. i'm also a recent convert to slate's VCC. the Neve 'emulation' on that brings so much thickness to the sound. it's stunning.
thanks again folks

When this thing opened up, the 'texture' of it was just incredible. I figured that was the mpx.
As it moves along, maybe some of the 'sonitex stuff that happens later' could be toned down. I don't really know about that, one way or the other. It could all very well be 'perfect' as it is.
But yeah, when this piece opened up i was like, 'whoah, just listen to that recording!'
- Thu Nov 10, 2011 11:40 am
the sonitex is on the 'happy' sounding synth line. just a little crackle here and there.. the parts you mention later on may be the glitch bits..?
thanks for listening and your comments mate, i appreciate it

Amazing soundscape. It just oozes darkness.
- Fri Nov 11, 2011 2:30 am
thank you Ronnie

Terrifically atmospheric piece of music, it has a real feeling of some kind of...dark power.
I'm scaring myself now

enjoyed the subtle light in it, <grin>
- Tue Nov 15, 2011 11:42 am
i've never gone out of my way to make 'dark' music, it's just the way it comes out. i'm glad you noticed the light in this
- Sat Nov 19, 2011 10:05 am
a very intense and haunting track! i'm loving it!
i'm not the only who finds it quite relaxing, am i?
- Wed Nov 23, 2011 2:10 am
