Firestorm #1

No artwork

Get Flash to see this player.

Picture a 3 minute film clip where the following happens, in fairly rapid succession:

General calm day to day life (almost blase), tension brings the media and other communication into the lives of everyone (a submarine moves from port), the confrontation (quick because deadly), the aftermath as the survivors emerge, the submarine surfaces and heads for home, on
arriving they witness the utter devastation.

This is a work in progress and needs a lot of work.

Let me know if you have any suggestions on any part or all of the mix. It's early days yet and
this mix will be replaced as the project progresses.

This fits the story well. I like the general starkness of it. Desolation. Very appropriate tones!

Hey DU....
Thanks for listening and leaving a comment.

i like this
very much. i'm thinking that maybe the chords could fade out over those crystalline sounds (for most of a bar I guess); but other than that I like the dramatic shifts and cold sounds you used. it's really beautiful. perfect for the vision you described.

Hi Michael.....
I must admit that I was worried what people would comment on and maybe would comment on the fact that very little of the mix is actual music.

The sounds/effects were all done with Absynth. I finally remembered what I'd used, as this was done three or four weeks ago and then forgotten.

I'll certainly have a look at the suggestions you make. Who knows what may come out of it.

Take care.

Beautiful bleakness.
Apocalyptic "On the Beach" feel to this.
Another otherworldly ride from you Reinholt.

Hey Charlie....
Thanks for listening and leaving a kind comment.

The piece just struck me, as it developed, as perfect for the role I have described. The mix just sort of made itself. All the recorded snippets were almost noise-free (where you would notice noise) and would need to be tweaked most if the film track ran under or over in the separate takes.

I'll have to listen to the music of the Australian/NZ film again. I saw this film last year and was very impressed with the film but can't remember the music.

(You caught my source idea nicely).

Take care.

You always surprise me...
This reminds me of UFO music. Very chilling, scary even. I like that it is suspenseful and keeping me glued to my seat anxiously waiting for what is happening next. Love it! Great job!

Thanks Gail.....
I always try to do something a little bit different, and if you like this sort of stuff then I'm a happy chap.

Take care.

i'm a freak for FX..
so this was a total enjoyment for me. i think you could have some fun re-working the intro a bit-maybe the ending too (my 2 favorite parts of a song). the droning tone that interjects the madness break things up nicely & the 'screaming' synth at the end is almost hard to listen to, but fitting somehow

looking forward to hearing how this progresses..

Thanks for visiting _score.......
The story behind this piece is that I was playing around with the Absynth synth and recorded snippets of various presets. These sound bytes were auditioned and then mixed. The story that I attributed to the music came as I was mixing the piece together. Things sort of fell into place and the story line appeared.

I may revisit this piece, if I get around to running up Absynth again. I'll bear your thoughts in mind when I do.

Take care.

Nice one
This has some real musical teeth. I like the synthwork a lot and mood you create.

Hi Nick......
I had to think about how I put this one together.

I recored all the individual parts on my keyboard, using Absynth, then mixed and matched and melded.

I'll check Ultima Thule out, as you suggest.

Take care.

I'm currently busy with getting my life back on some sort of track and hope to get into the music making business again in the near future, with a planned third net album 'Karma of Love' that will be an Immersive Ambient set of tracks. This should be... [see more]
