The Paranormaloids (March Mix)



 Genre: Ambient
No artwork

Get Flash to see this player.

This is a mix in a similar vein to my last mix. A slight departure or evolution but one i'm OK way.

The title just came to me as I put this mix together so nothing any more esoteric or symbolic.

For those that appreciate such info, there are 6 stereo pairs in the original mix, with 3 of the same final stereo mix with one left straight, one with plenty of reverb and one with a stereo placement effect (Voxengo Stereo Touch).

If you want to share any thoughts I am all ears.

Cool Soundscape
nice textures and build up. This would be a great accompanyment for a sci fi cinematic or video game. I hear the exploration of a vast disorienting nebula. The ending vst/sample you used@ 6:54 was stellar.

Hi PT81......
I agree. SciFi would suit this piece.

The disorinetation could be the effect of the unusual soundscape. If your imagination does not understand something it will make something up. It doesn't 'lock-out'. It tries to find meaning and if the meaning is tangential to the cause, so be it. That's how trains of thought appear.

I'll have to give the piece another listen to hear what you mean, @ 6:54. I'll do that right now....

Take care.

digital miners
the miners of the moon Para 257 are a strange bunch. they do not start out that way. however, the slow march into the tunnels is strange. their mag-boots collect traces of psycho-kinetic dust, the powder they are mining. it clings to their boots. it wafts into their lungs. it drifts into their minds. small flashes of light sparkle on the walls as they march deeper. the work is hard. it pays well. it is made easier by breathing the dust as you work. it keeps the paraspiders away. some claim the paraspiders do not exist. they may be mental projections from the dust. however, the paranormaloid miners must continue the dig. the diggerbots create a rhythm in the tunnels. and they must carry the rainbow ore back to the surface before the grid goes off each evening.

Hi Hagura-san.........
I might together another soundscape using your wonderful and imaginative comment above. The words resonates with my musical soul and take me 'there' as I listen to this mix again whilst typing.

Mind-moving dust, ingestion of same, sparklies, rainbows. Mind pictures of a most open-to-what-ever-comes-next imagination in a kind of Follow-the-White-Rabbit-World-View.

Take care.

Really cool!

Hi Mark......
I start, usually, with a theme/chord sequence, map the theme via MIDI to any number of separate channels, each of these channels then becomes an instrument in the overall mix. Each MIDI channel is given at least one soft synth part (the most time consuming part) as I work a mix of instruments to my taste. I double/treble up some of the channels to add depth. I then mix down to a stereo pair.

I then use a minimum of 3 copies of this stereo pair to put through effects, to achieve the final stereo mix that ends up on the Internet and which people listen to.

That's my method, in a nutshell.

Take care.

My one thought....
...Another fascinating journey into the mind of Paul Reinholt. You consistently stretch your (and my) imagination. And while I don't understand all of the technical explanation, I find it really interesting how you go about creating one of these unique soundscapes. I hope you are writing this all down in a notebook. Someone will be amazing when they read about it...Anyway, "Paranormaloids" is such a good title. Planet Nine, here we come!

Hi Paul......
I was always told, at school, that I had a vivid imagination, and I could conjour up LSD-type trip descriptions without (ever) having taken any. The music I produce is an extension of this, until something else grabs my attention and/or interest.

I do document my methods but the methods change over time and so I'm foever editing my methods, hence the text never arrives at a final draft. Ah well. Here's to the next draft.

The title just came to me as I was putting the mix together, so it stuck.

Take care.

the disorientation I was talking about comes from the floating sounds and heavy reverb. it creates a large vortex or tunnel where one can get lost.

Hi PT81.........
Ah so......I hear what you're describing and I think that it fits the bill. It's the way my current effect-finish-off of a piece is done. We'll see what happens next and how listeners interpret this.

Take care.

Always. You continue to evolve.

Hi Martin......
Evolution has always been a pet subject of mine and is part of my tracks evolve over time, using vLFO's. It's good of you to notice.

Take care.
