what happened here?

Here’s a post-apocalyptic themed track. The woman’s voice is from https://www.freesound.org/people/Corsica_S/sounds/99480/ . I think she’s got an amazing voice. If interested, check out other samples her boyfriend has uploaded (she’s usually described as “my girlfriend”). And here’s a list of all other sounds: Freesound.org (lighter background) and freeSFX.co.uk (darker background)

Orion’s belt

A tune I’ve been working on over the past few days. More like a sketch than a finished product. Might add a bit more something to it. Not sure just what yet… maybe some distant talking with the ol’ telephone wire FX. We’ll see…

Submarine Ascension

https://soundcloud.com/dedrokstarz/submarine-ascention Last night I felt an urge to do an “underwaterscape” where a sub’s ping would be the main percussion, and the marine life would be just as audible as U-boat’s interior. The next morning, I learn that divers are exploring a German sub. One of those artistic coincidences, I guess… http://io9.com/a-sunken-nazi-sub-has-been-discovered-off-the-texas-coa-1605257102 Related articles The […]

A remix of a tune I did about a year ago… I might tweak this a bit… specifically, the sustain on the high notes of the piano melody might come down a bit… not sure right now… going to let it sit for a few days before I make any potential changes. Related articles R3hab […]

into the sun

This tune is based on some ideas that I worked out over the past few years. I used to spend long hours in the basement with my keyboard, mic, guitar and headphones all hooked up thru a mixer. After a while I got tired of the rock concert in my head and decided to start […]

Life is MORE than a highway…

Just discovered this video. The driver seems to be coming into the city from the country, but for me it really captures hitting the highway, headed for the country away from the city. Once I get past the heavy traffic and can relax a bit, it’s time to crank up the Ibiza and open the […]

Don’t trust the machines…

Major crisis with my rendering of Are You An Evil Mystik, Mister? I just realized that setting the keyboard and software tempos to the same beats per minute doesn’t mean they’ll stay in sync thru the whole tune! Ouch. Looks like I’ll have to start again. I know how to fix it. But it means […]
