This time I am working with Reason to create a soundtrack like piece. Had fun with programming all the effects. This one would of been my pick for the Space Race entry. I hope you enjoy.

Nice Job ... I like what happens at about 2:30 when the percussion comes in ... you should be making soundtracks for film or animated films.
Very visual piece.
Cheers

Hi Stan
I like the percussion as well. It helps with timing when one has delay that behaves! Thanks for the words of encouragement, I really appreciate them =)

This is
something that i wish i could do - a pure soundscape, where the lyrics do almost no work at all, because the music does it. Something i am striving to do more and more.

That derelict sounds creepy and BIG. That heartbeat...my own heart, or something transmitted from the dead ship?

Really evocative and compelling. Nice work. Must have taken some putting together.

From one dogged amateur to another, keep going! It sounds good!

Hi Marc
One could say the same with your genre of music which I always enjoy hearing. I love the history people write about, it helps appreciate the remembering of passed events whether historical or fiction. Well I am glad it made your heartbeat pound a little more than usual, learning how to provoke emotion is one of the things I love learning about music.

Again I really appreciate the time to listen and for your comments.

Thanks for taking the time to listen and to comment. Always appreciate them. It's always fun learning a new things about a program that some dust on it. It seems to be a very worthy program to have an addition to Logic which they seem to go hand in hand.

Thanks again!

What a great comment, I really appreciate that. I wish we all can quit our day jobs and do what we like to do best, and that is to be creative. Hopefully when I learn more about Reasons way of doing things I can create my own sounds and truly have control over my pieces.

I am happy that you had enjoyed it. Take care!

Any chance you'll make a remix version adding your signature piano playing at or near the end? The atmosphere is very inspiring, and I think adding only a few passages will have a great effect. Cheers!

I am flattered that you enjoy my piano playing, it is such a treat to create tracks with piano. Unfortunately, I am without my Roland only the oxygen, and I can't stand the feel of it when it comes to playing piano. No offense to anyone using it ;P

Hopefully soon Metro will be finished (another piece in the Arin saga) that will have piano for sure...

Thanks again I really appreciate it!

I am getting into percussion slowly by surely. I think the next soundtrack piece will have more for sure. Hopefully tastefully and not overdone! As for a sequel, I am much better just creating scenarios and not too great on finishing them-hehe

Sets the scene well. Sense of dread there. Certainly has that wide space feel, although the deeper sounds add excitement. Vox work well. A very visual piece of music.

This is an interesting listening experience - covers all the genres: space, scifi - even a little suspense/horror. Special effects are cool, and the occasional vocal line keeps things moving along. When the percussion comes in, it adds an element of timing, and also of suspense, as though something important is about to happen. You did a great job with this piece, telling your sonic story - much enjoyed!

I really enjoyed listening to this animated fantasia, a soundscape worthy of a film. ... I am now headed for my second listen. There's just too much to grab on one pass.

Thanks so much, it is so much fun to dabble in scoring like this. With the little toys we have at our fingertips is just so amazing. Tiny nuances of sound that flow in and out of the audible spectrum is so kewl to add to the whole mystery of music.

Thanks again!

Gosh this is good. Very atmospheric, reminiscent of many sci-fi soundtracks. Your use of vocal samples is perfect; they don't interfere with the soundbed at all and augment it perfectly. The percussion coming in at the 2.30 mark is excellent; I love the way you have used the delay. It would be nice to hear this extended. I feel it could do with being much longer; it just seems to get going, then ends. Nevertheless, a very deep and powerful soundscape. Terrific job!

Creeped me out.
And so, in my book, you were completely successful with this track. Out of this world and in a scary place. A few years ago I posted a number called "Locust Storm." I think your composition is the "Chernoble Harvest." I really like the radio announcements throughout. Gives the whole track a sense of urgency and realism. I can just imagine your delight everytime you discovered a new sound to drop into the mix. Cool.

Atmosphere +
Very nicely put together. A full spectrum of sounds, wonderful buildup of tensions. I must admit I was waiting for something to jump out at the end! The fact it didn't (or there wasn't a loud stab or rump makes it all the more intense since in a way I'm still waiting for a break in the tension). Your slow tonal evolution with the interspersed VOX is a guarantee to evoke the lonely atmosphere of the derelict vessel.

Brilliant Patricia.

Layering...
I wouldn't have the slightest idea where to begin when composing something like this. There are SO MANY disparate elements that you have cleverly and seamlessly woven into what is a pretty impressive narrative. I am wondering what that narrative actually is and/or how it might have driven you to make these particular choices. Very inventive work that is always interesting, captivating, and very creepy. Nice.
