Title Screen | Human Machine

I'll be alternating between 3-4 track EPs that focus on different genres, so this is the start of the next one.

Human Machine is a set of dark/horrorsynth inspired synthwave that focuses a cinematic synth style that I've wanted to try and explore a little. This one was kinda rushed, so hopefully I can realise it a bit better next week.

Oh yeah, super dramatic and dark introduction. Definitely cinematic, nailed it. This one in particular had kind of a terminator vibe which is not what I typically associate with Synthwave and I think that's pretty cool tbh.

You nailed the cinematic experience for sure.

As everyone has said - this fits so perfectly with your description. Awesome stuff. One piece of feedback - at 60% through the track with the drum/tom(?) transitions, I felt that could be a bit louder/impactful. Could be the headphones I'm wearing though but they did sound a bit subdued.

Oh man I love that bass. Perfect drums. Very dark. Could easily be in a horror/scifi movie soundtrack!

Love the grittiness and texture work, I can easily picture the dimly lit urban maze of a cyberpunk megalopolis, Great track!

This is part of what I really wanted to explore so thank you so much! Taking inspiration from Terminator, John Carpenter and 80s horror/thriller scores in general then then modernising it a bit and putting my own spin on it. Not sure if each experiment will be like that, but it'll be interesting to see what I learn along the way big_smile

Thank you for the feedback! I definitely agree as well, so it's something I'll change right away. It doesn't hit quite as hard as I want it to in general so gonna be fun trying to find ways to do it.

Thank you so much, guys! I really appreciate it and I'm so glad the sci fi/cyberpunk horror vibe came through. Was an interesting experiment for sure.
