Space Cowboy

By Kedbreak136 on March 15, 2020 1:56 am

I have been catching up on watching The Mandalorian and I like the mix of Sergio Leone westerns and space fantasy.

This week I wanted to do the bastard child of western movie soundtrack borrowing elements of Ennio Morricone and mixing them with more sci-fi/EDM elements. Fake guitar with tremolo and reverb, vibraslap, gunshots. Windy desert. Of course I ended up reusing my team of mariachis from last week - I think I've taken a liking to them.

Done on FL Studio, with some 909 beats and Sytrus synth.

Feels like a sci-fi western stand-off build up that ends in a gigantic shoot out and I love it.

Question: What is that bass sound you use in the intro? Has a great driving feeling to it.

Thanks a lot - I was going for that vibe. smile

The build up bass is from Sytrus synth in FL Studio - I used an arpeggiator called "action". It's pretty cool and gives great result for little effort.

Vraiment chouette! Getting the western influences definitely, and a penchant for synthwave on the EDM/Sci-fi side, good idea to mix both! big_smile the vibraslap is just the perfect addition big_smile

Hahahaha oui! Sans quoi il faudrait bien que quelqu'un invente les trois coquillages de Demolition Man!

Ooh ... deffo has that Morricone-vibe to it. But because of the electronics it reminds me very much of the Drive-soundtrack. Which is a huge compliment, cause it is extremely awesome! As is this track smile
Kudos!!!!!
