Through Tunnels in the Earth

By Catthew O. on May 29, 2016 11:37 pm

Chase through the caverns. Bad men with guns and you know something they don't want you to.
I originally thought like "futuristic speeder bike chase!" but then the Cavern = Goldeneye = took place in 1986 thing kicked in once I pulled out those guitar sounds. Not to mention, the mallet percussion type part has a (highly intentional) "Danny Elfman's solo album"/80s action film vibe, further putting me into the past.


Look, it's your call. Whether you want black guns and men in dated military attire or speeder bikes and swords and magic in the future, that's up to you, friend.


All synth sounds from the Roland XV-2020 (a synth I haven't really used much since 2010) recorded from the headphone jack with a broken cable and broken converter. Most drum sounds came from the Alesis SR-16 (two or three of the cymbal sounds were just channel 10 on the 2020)
