Head For the Hills - Run For The Sky

By NWSPR on August 30, 2020 8:34 pm

Today I spent about three hours on this track using some syncopated sequences I recorded on the Arturia Microbrute back in 2016.  They come in about halfway through.  The rest of the instruments are VST plugins on Logic X.  Then some Moog grandmother melody lines.

Interesting side note, when bouncing my export from Logic I saw a dialog that said I used 1,141 sequenced notes and that does not include the analog instruments. Crazy, never noticed that information before. 

Won't be freed up for much music until after mid September when the film festival I'm working on is completed.  This weekend I have all jurors in final selection and am on boarding a hundred films to the website where we'll do the virtual festival.  Check it out at https://brooklynscififilmfest.com/ and get free passes now!

Keep living in a SciFi world y'all. I'll be more social in October when the film fest is over. Be well!

Excellent synths song. Nice beat and textures.

Another one with some awesome upbeat energy.  It gives me a little bit of a flying saucer vibe or something, which fits the sci-fi theme.  Hopefully you'll get super artistically inspired after watching what I'm sure will be a bunch of awesome sci-fi films.

Awesome man, love the synth sounds on this one.  That lead near the end is perfect.

That beat and galloping bass from 0:30 really took the song from a daft punk's Tron Legacy to a different place. Great synth lines there.

Best of luck with the film festival!

Love the pace in this with the beat and arpy synths.  Excellent synth solo towards the outro.

Fun fun, killer synths. Keep on arping in the sci-fi world. Checking out the film fest!

Bit heady at times, but still very nice.

Another great synthwave anthem from you... great stuff and I hope all the best for your festival! Keep safe!

Glad you're still making tunes while having your workload stacked and on a steady roll. Fun track here.
