Rigor

Do you ever wish you had more time? I do, the days really go by so fast.
I feel like I had some good ideas for this week's track but it went in a different direction than what I had originally envisioned. Still I put it all down like in a notebook and maybe some day I will come back and reuse the parts for other stuff.
I used a lot of BX oberhausen here, a vst synth I got for free a couple of years ago and didn't even want to install because I already have too many vsts but it can do those classic retro synth tones very convincingly and there's a lot of good presets covering all the basics.

nice bit of atmospheric macabre retro, evolves nicely too!

it has a kind of solid juno60 aesthetic bedded in a crystal reverb texture. I really liked that.

Great atmosphere and really interesting how things morph and change, especially 3:00 on when things felt less "pulsed" than previous parts. The kind of synthesized vocal sounds were a lovely texture as well.

seriously, where does the time go?
i enjoyed how these synths talked to each other 

really neat track

Very cool. And I agree..time feels like its rolling on its own and I'm trying to keep up..

Listening to your stuff in retrospective, I always enjoy how you feel the space in the mix. There's always something happening and some element entering or leaving. Some of your transitions keep me wondering "how did he do it?", specially when you fade one "chorus" to a lead without the listener almost noticing.

Also, the tension and intrigue of the track is fantastic. Some of you most cinematic ones, IMHO.
