Technically simple but harmonically complex ambient track. Waldorf Streichfett and Moog Mother-32 sequenced by Korg SQ-1. Live recording. Inspired by Treebeard’s conversation with Merry and Pippin.
Something a little different this time. Made a lovely snarly synth guitar sound by forming a sawtooth and squarewave powerchord. This is a song about the evangelical cults of the American mid-west and the way they line their own pockets by preying on the vulnerable. It’s loud and angry 🙂 Judgement
So, playing around with Mixcraft to get a bit of verse and chorus structure in place yields the following rough mix. As usual, please excuse the poor vocals – I’m still using a horrible Korg condenser mic. The should be a shiny new dynamic mic arriving Real Soon Now(tm). Everything Burns Prototype II
More mucking around with Mr Haydn. This is just a quick dabble to try out some other stuff. The theme is played on a synthetic organ sound with a heavy reverb applied to give it a ‘church hall’ sound. Nearer the end, a couple of my usual synth patches join in. Mucking around with Haydn.
Ok, so this little theme has been rattling around in my head after StillHarpingOn was speaking about it, so I had to get down and dirty with the MicroKORG to get it out of my system. Dear Mr Haydn, I am SO sorry. I realise you’re spinning in your grave fast enough t get giddy,
