Mixed Morals

By Jim Wood on April 7, 2018 4:12 pm

I worked for a couple of days on a "Meh" song before I decided to junk it (saved the title, though). This is a rework of something from late last year. Chipmunk vocals: Authors Playhouse 1944-07-14 "The Mysterious Stranger." Endless random arpeggiation.

If Alvin and the Chipmunks dropped acid with a bunch of robots and decided to lay down some sweet jams, I imagine the results would be something like this.  Awesome stuff.

Trippy! You could say those chipmunks went a bit crazy being in space for so long... You could say they went... nuts! I'm sorry I couldn't resist the pun smile

I went to the old radio source you mentioned above. That seems to be an eldorado for historical transmissions.
It is a clever art, how you transport old and new media into todays music and give them an unique futuristic ambient style. The track is hypnotising and a pleasure to listen to.

Thanks all! I can still remember listening to a creepy radio broadcast alone in my Grandmother's Charles Addam-like house and being so terrified that I ran outside and listened to the rest on our car radio (so that I could see if anything was trying to sneak up on me).

This one takes me to another world! Btw, I was inspired by you to have a play around with Alter Ego. Fun times.

Super deep bass that punches thru the cool arp line.  Spooky indeed!
