Terminal Transmission

By xavoneir on March 25, 2018 7:13 pm

"After wandering the vast dunes of the megastructure for some time, you begin to hear strange noises in the distance. The noises grow louder over time, increasingly rhythmic with every second of focus. War drums. They beat more furiously the more you listen, and they are growing in volume. Someone or something is aware of your presence, and it's coming for you. You turn to run, but are pulled out of the thought by another noise - frantic beeping ringing deep within your ears. It's Morse code. The hostile entity is trying to tell you something."

This track was a bit of a diversion from my plans. Initially, I wanted to create some drum n' bass for this week's submission, but I pushed it off until next week in order to add to the situation and better segue the simple plot-line I have in mind. Instead, I made some Morse code-ridden IDM type thing with a heavy inspiration from Aphex Twin's Richard D. James album. I attempted to make it sound fast-paced and frantic, like something was approaching you at a continuous speed until it was close enough to constantly be in line of sight.

How mysterious. .. .  . . .
Would be interesting to see a transcription of the Morse code on this one!

I'm hoping someone else transcribes it. If they don't, I'll put it on next week's description.
