This song is an attempt / exploration in using very simple, ‘analog sounding’ textures with minimalistic variations. It started with the simple, 2-tone ‘bass’ line and grew from there.
Lately I’ve become more and more fascinated with analog synthesis and sound modeling and while I don’t yet own any truly analog gear, I do have access to many software emulations of famous vintage synthesizers.
The sounds you hear in this song are a mix of Moog modular, Arp 2600 and a monophonic little machine I programmed my self. The percussion is from Maschine. Finally the Japanese samples are from my daughter’s calculator…
It’s a bit long perhaps, but give it a chance and see if you like it :)
(The sound quality in the soundcloud version is not very nice. I can send you a better version if you give me a shout.)
I like it!! ;D
Thank you! You are my biggest fan! ;-)
I like how the synths are coming along! Looking forward to hearing more texture explorations :)
Thanks! I really appreciate the feedback! More songs on the way!
I really like the modulated synths that come in around 5:45. This song has a “big” feel to it but stays pretty throughout…almost reminds me of Postal Service in its elements.
Thanks Daniel! I certainly do not feel worthy of such comparisons (yet ;-) ) but that’s really encouraging!
