Untitled VIII

Still sick, avoid Melbourne - it's a plague pit.

More drones, tried for a rhythmic pulsing underneath the whole track, wish I had more energy to mix it in better.  Still looking for the magic trick so when you compress a .wav file to .mp3 you don't loose so much detail.

Made in Ableton

Sucks about the illness.  I'm in post op on my leg so currently taking it easy myself.  This is a very cool and menacing track.  A definite element of horror here.  I like!

Super sinister. That underlying pulse combined with that sort of ecclesiastical choir was perfect.

Dear god, I was preparing for the jump scare the entire time I was listening to this. Fantastic tension. I could see the movie scene going along with it. Ready made for a horror movie soundtrack. Great work!

Great evocation of a menacing or threatening atmosphere. And sorry to hear that the plague atmosphere got you.

What settings are you using to export the mp3s?

Thank you, and I hope your leg heals up well.

Thanks man.  I think next time I might make that pulsing sound a little more random and chaotic

The fun thing about making this kind of music is how people hear it, I kinda love you were waiting for a sting.

Thank you for checking it out.

For conversion I export the file out of Ableton as a WAV then use DBPoweramp to convert the file to the highest quality MP3 file it will allow.  Week 1 I tried uploading a lossless MP4 file but it seemed anyone not on a OSX/iOS device couldn't play it

Very deep! Fav'd it
