The Final Days

By rdomain on April 7, 2018 9:12 am

Music created on the modular synth to suit the age of 16mm film from 1970. 

The footage is from Omega (1970) by Donald Fox.  The film is in the public domain.  The music was rendered from the hardware performance and then treated in Reaktor to create the ageing VHS tape quality.

Wow, the music goes perfectly with the visuals!  This might be my favorite piece of yours to date.  The VHS treatment is perfect.  I really need to get something like that!  Um, I can't say enough good things about this piece.  I love the length and I love that you have primary elements and then secondary "bonus" elements that show up and give the piece "movements" and variety.  A++ favorited and downloaded heart

Cheers!  And no, the one you're thinking of is much more experimental I would say.  It's on Youtube.  I'll have to dig up the link as it's not on my channel.

Really cool and super eerie piece with the film.  The sound texture is so nice and thick smile  I know nothing about putting a music video together, but what software did you use to edit the movie together?  I suppose I could just do it in ableton but which much less options avail?

Thanks man.  For something like this that doesn't require much editing or manipulation, I just use iMovie!  The audio is mixed and mastered in Ableton though before it's exported to iMovie.  You can do it all in Ableton but you won't have any video editing features such as crossfades, titles, etc.

Suhweet, I'll have to give that a try.  I've used iMovie before in the past when it first came out but never thought of using it now with ableton.  Thanks for the inspiration! smile
