Chuck's Theme (1985)

Get Flash to see this player.

Thought I'd just post this one for fun. What with all the helicopter sounds...it reminded me of the soundtrack to a bad Chuck Norris movie from the 80's. Recorded with only the ESQ-1 with the onboard sequencer, this was my take on the dueling synthesizer kind of song a la Patrick Moraz in "The Story of I." (but without his chops of course). With todays massive audio capabilities it's still seems amazing what you can squeeze out of only 8 notes of polyphony on the ESQ-1. Recorded in 1984.

Classically trained composer and orchestrator. Been doing sound design and synthesis for a long time. Enjoying the incredible power of computers and samples, but it's great just to sit down with a guitar or analog synth and just play too. Graham ... [see more]
