Description
For the HALLOWEEN2012 challenge - a very short piece, but what can be scarier than yet another political ad! Blast from the past. For the curious, the sounds besides the vocals are all from either samples from the famous Buchla synth or tracks from Madrona Aalto (which is based on the Buchla design).

Great ad remix
It's amazing the variety of sounds that a synth can produce. Cool short - it could be used between interviews on NPR on Halloween. The modified vox and the sound bed make for a discomforting feeling that grows creepier by the second.

Was creepier in 2008!
The Buchla is pretty amazing - wish I could afford one! I use the Aalto and some purchased Buchla samples on the ESX24. The campaign ad was real - a Delaware tea party candidate back in 2008. Creepy stuff!

Thanks for listening. Was really just a quick idea - not on par with some of the full releases but was fun for Halloween! The Buchla sounds are fun too - more rhythmic than melodic though.
