Alien Nation

Filed under: alternative,ambient,Composition,piano,Synth,vocals — steve @ 3:18 pm

First composition for quite some time and the first using Cubase 5.5.2 64 bit on my new Win 7 64 bit PC – a fair bit of stuffing around trying to get older 32 bit VST and VSTi’s working…

So, here we are, ‘Alien Nation’: ’cause they’re due here after the world ends in 2012, don’t you know…

East West’s Voices of Passion, AAS String Studio & Entangled Species, Audio Damages Axon, HG Forune’s ScapesWizard Mini [free], and free 64 bit effects and processors VSTs [Compression, EQ, Stereo Enhancer, and Limiter] from Melda Production Audio Technologies – these made this track possible as TRacks [no 64 bit pluggins] DO NOT run at all well in Cubase 5.5.2 64 bit…

Anyhow, enjoy [11:30]

Monster Spirit

Filed under: alternative,Composition,drums & bass,guitar,piano,Synth,vocals — steve @ 7:19 pm

Sort of inspired by the Monkey series which I am watching at the moment – everything is either a spirit, a monster or a demon… A bit repetitive, but then again, so is Monkey…

Guitars, bass and rhodes piano from Independence 1.5; Synths from Proteus VX’ Vocals from Creative/Emu soundfonts; and, drims by JamStix…

Popped Gothic Rock

Filed under: alternative,Composition,drums & bass,guitar,Synth,vocals — steve @ 4:49 pm

Taking a break from study for a few days to get the weird study related dreams out of my head. Tried out my new Miroslav Philharmonik VST and this is what came from it – a goth rock sort of thing for whatever reason – such is the nature of intuitive composing with no real direction to start with.

Male vocals and orchestral warm-up noises from Miroslav Philharmonik; guitars and basses from Independence 1.5; organ and synths from Proteus VX; female vocals from the wonderful Irina Brochin soundfont; and, drums by JamStix 2.5…

(A) Rift in Time

Filed under: alternative,Composition,drums & bass,guitar,Synth — steve @ 12:21 am

A semi techno- trance thing with mangled arpeggiators and synths and the like plus drums, ‘guitar’ and bass… Strange syncopated cross rhythms after the change/middle eight – hence the “Rift in Time”…

All instruments from indpendence 1.5, drums from JamStix…

Drunk & Dischordally

Filed under: alternative,Composition,drums & bass,piano,Synth — steve @ 12:06 am

An attempt at mangling sounds with arpeggiators, modulators, echo and the like. Kind of reminded me of the voices and crap inside your head when you are so very, very drunk that you are almost tripping like when drinking copious amounts of red wine on an empty stomach – not that I have done that for 20 years or more now…

All instruments from Independence 1.5 except for the drums from JamStix…

Mole Skin

Filed under: alternative,Composition,drums & bass,guitar,piano,Synth — steve @ 7:54 pm

This is from a piano piece by Edwin Lynch (his version is here). He sent me the midi file of the piano and then I re-arranged it a little and added bass, bells, guitar and synths to it to produce this version below…

Piano, bass and guitar from Independence, bells from Halion, synths from ProteusVX, and drums from JamStix…

Evil Dark Nasty Thing

Filed under: alternative,Composition,strings,Synth — steve @ 8:40 pm

A rather nasty, evil, dark composition…

Independence 1.5 and Proteus VX plus a little bit of vocals from Papelmedia_Irina_Brochin.sf2…

Rat Race

Filed under: alternative,Composition,drums & bass,guitar,vocals — steve @ 10:08 pm

Sometimes ‘working for the man’ can make one feel as if it were a ship you were on then everyone would have left years ago… Independence 1.5, Jamstix2 and the usual vocal soundfonts…

A Touch of Melancholia

Filed under: alternative,Composition,drums & bass,guitar,vocals,woodwind — steve @ 6:03 pm

Mood swings, depression and madness. Found a couple of vocal soundfonts on the web yesterday – Papelmedia_Irina_Brochin.sf2 and Boychoir.sf2 which both sound not too bad at times – plenty of crap ones out there though that weren’t worth the hassle of downloading. Choir Ahhs from Creative/E-MU soundfont; guitar, bass and clarinet from Independence 1.5; and, drums from Jamstix…

‘Three’ extended

Filed under: alternative,Composition,piano,strings — steve @ 12:12 pm

An extended version of “Dirge” for the movie “3″ – not certain that this will suit the movie however as it gets a little too ‘hopeful’ which is not what “3″ needs…

Dirge

A quirky piece using Garritan Personal Orchestra that may be used in an Edwin Lynch movie titled “3″…
