Rotating deck

By laguna on September 18, 2016 8:33 pm

Continuing with this series of "spaced out" tracks I brought you the part when our astronaut has to cross a huge rotating deck with artificial gravity on the edges. Floating jumps, magnetic boots and the like...

I tried to build some kind of "dizziness/rotating world" feeling on this. Doepfer modular, Novation mininova and the Ableton mallet synth generator.

Very simple again, just three tracks and effects. The fourth track you see in the arrangement it's just MIDI sequences.

Hope you're enjoying this mini science-fiction trip wink

I'm at last back home and hoping to catch up with your music very soon. Thank you everybody for listening, have a great week!

Nice, i love it!
The first part, sounds like a moog mod!

Wonderfully hypnotic, warm filtered ostinato.  Totally digging it.

(I was considering a gif like this one, though, too:)

the metal sounds are very nice and spacey

I agree, this hypnotic track gets quite some edge because of the metal-y sounds! Nice work!

it is also essential that in some part of the rotating deck gravity goes off and you do something like this

All Doepfer modules plus Novation Mininova, and an Eica Synths analog filter smile... Aprt from some Live's magic, of course

Thank you very much, m2K7!

Both are excellent cool looking GIFs smile

Thank you for listening every week, and I'm glad you enjoyed my more ambient excursions smile

I think I should learn to use that synth better. It's part of the suite and I like mallets, but for some reason, I've almost never touched it.

Thank you guys for listening. Glad you liked it smile

the track works fine. Makes my dizzy and disorientated.

THen you're trully walking through my rotating spaceship deck smile I'd love to make a proper sketch, but apart from drawings, I'm quite sure this is the sound.

Thanks for listening and commenting, Q-Rosh, and all your constant and positive feedback

oh i didn't know you got into modular! nice how it organically wobbles and evolves, and certainly much different than what i was expecting after my, um, 4-month break (sorry!)

Well, that change of style is pretty recent, but I've been using modular for about two years. Lately it was almost stopped because I have to rebuilt and expand my power bus. My case, power supply and busses are all DIY so I could keep cost down.

Glad to have you back, mate! You were missed

Really liking these tracks, great movement with the sound, I could see this working with your other tracks, was almost waiting for the boom-bap to drop

I had the same thought, actually!

Ah I wish I could do some DIY but I suck at it.

Glad to be back. Sorry for the delay.

I can imagine tools hitting metal struts in zero G. Nicely done!

September 24, 2016 7:29 am

A very nice ride through space! Really like how the metallic sounds work as a percussive element with the flowing sounds

Haha that's the idea. Don't forget your zero-g toolbelt and your magnetic shoes.. Thanks, Jim!!!

Thank you Plaintrain. I think I should give those mallets more work in the future... Never found a proper place to put those metal elements in my music till now

Spaced out 100%!!  Good fx usage

Reminded me slightly of Daft Punk's Tron sound with the spinning arp.  A good disorienting synthy feel smile
