Abstract ambient with a vibe that moves from spacey to groove.

Your music always creates mind movies for me. For this one, I was wandering around in a vast, abandoned warehouse that had some unpleasant things lurking about. I was concerned that guy from "Inter Face" with the chainsaw might make an appearance. Fortunately, he decided not to show up. :)

In the end, this piece has more mood than action. I think it is quite successful but it creates a menacing atmosphere that I want to escape from rather than bask in.

This begins with an oriental vibe laced with a '70s SciFi movie/TV soundtrack atmo, when some lovely sustained pads enter to settle the things down before the final, creepy groove section shifts the mood once more.

Good work :)

damn, you are right up there with the BBC and 50cent at Soundcloud.

goodness knows how you got this collection of sounds together. That last 1/3 with the recurring piano figure sounds quite suspensefully creepy.

...Man Matt!...you'd be GREAT at writing soundtracks...so interesting...and modern...I always have to ask you what's going on sonically? :) If you can remember that is? What reverb(s) are you using to give this a nice huge space. And the strings, pianos etc? I really appreciate the originality of your music-free of cliché.

Man, quite diverse and unique style of production you have in your arsenal lol.

Over last few years since I first heard you you really develop your own technique and style and sound really sweet and cool man.

Well done !!!


Cheers Matt,

I like that freedom with no boundaries, no restrictions, no rules setup by somebody else – it's only me and my music.

Many thanks guys!

Hey Chuck... I busted out the iPad for all the deep spacey sounds. The app is called Samplr - quite a bit of fun to use. I went in and recorded a bunch of parts, and the spacey reverb is just the effect included included in Samplr. Project Sam's Orchestral Essentials comes in for the strings and trombone (yup!). Pianoteq supplies the piano and the drums were done with Machinedrum.

an expert example of restraint and taste, this invokes an atmosphere i could soak in for days. i love the way something so delicate can have such impact. splendid :)

neil.

Thought I heard some real trombone or something in here. I like how you've taken Orchestral Essentials out of it's comfort zone. It sounds pretty comfortable here though.

Nice crisp production too.

Soundtrack for a droid's dream sequence. And lovely to boot. Thanks, polyslax.
