Catacombs


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Deep.....in the catacombs....the latest mid tempo rocker from from the beat combo sonicmagpie, explores new depths of spookiness and aural exploration

Formed from the basis of a chorbot experiment and filtered through the magpie's nest, this is actually far from mid-tempo and/or 'rocker'

For those that know...think of David Bowie's rendition of Kurt Weill/Bertolt Brecht's 'The Drowned Girl' and you will be close to the mood that this song conveys

Original chord sequence - The Chordbot
Alterations to original chord sequence and additional synthetic, baroque textures - particledots and mysti
Singing - mystified

An alternative take on the original chordbot sequence can be heard on michael2's page - http://www.macjams.com/song/67219

A delicious transformation to spookiness...
It's an adventure to collaborate with you, B, and I love the song that resulted from this collaborative journey.
The first thing I heard when I listened to the chordbot sequence was the chilling tritone intervals--which i promptly emphasized in my melody.
Your subsequent alterations to my additions are brilliant; I always hold my breath as I listen to the last 1/3 of this piece as that icy synth, breath-like, colors the tone and completes the song.

Thank you! :)

Chordbot is rapidly becoming the 5th Beatle
but there's no accounting for how cool this track is at the hands of you two masters of mood. Great vox Mysti - and excellent blender Bryn.

This
is wonderfully atmospheric. Very European, if you will. I love the pads that come in at 2.15. Really develops the feel of the piece. The icy synth in the last part is very delicate, but just right for the mood. It's quite lovely!
