Palmistria

Very dark ambient journey... mellotron horror combined with Moog S/H filter drone. That s/h bleeping is one of the most famous Moog cliches for sure, but I just couldn´t say no to its hypnotic powers smile

The S/H gives meter and pacing against the more ambient sounds. Not cliche, just a classic. Mellotron sounds excellent against the synthesizer.

Who can resist sample & hold?

The bleeping is great.  The backing tracks have a bit of an underwater vibe so it kind of sounds like a manic submarine or something to me.  Cool epic track regardless.

Thanks, the Mellotron sounds are very special... they have mystery, nostalgia and a strange, not so easily defined ghostly quality, no matter how much you hear them. Actually, I do not know too many tracks that are not bettered by some mellotron usage!

Thanks! My first synth as a young boy was a Micromoog (still have it!). One of the first things I came across toying with it was that S/H filter bleep... so it´s probably etched to my brain for good smile
