Thanks. :) That's the first track I did a lot with the MPE stuff (the K-Board Pro 4), I think the poly-aftertouch helped the "Vangelis feel" a lot.

New ambient drone from the drone meister.. and before you ask, no field recordings were used. So no AC units were harmed in the production of this track. :cop:


Cool, sounds like something from the soundtrack to a Japanese horror movie. :thu:

Three years since the last music release, five songs, 18 minutes long. PRODUCTIVITY!

So it's kinda the standard stuff I do of late -- music that is soundtrack-ish, sort of classical music crossover-y influenced, !!!UBER-EPIC!!! at times, schmaltzy at other times, and gray-sounding for the rest (hence the title). Mostly slow, except for Gray 5 which is a brisk pipe organ romp. Mostly minor key, which fits these "stormy" times I think.

The main difference between this and previous releases:
A) A greater percentage of the work was scored in notation beforehand. I got to know the joys and pains of Finale Printmusic. Yay.
B) Many of the songs (all but Gray 2 which is a little piano-and-analog-synth waltz) contain Authentic Mystical Gibberish (TM) choral parts, thanks to the oddly named FluffyAudio Dominus Kontakt sample library.

I kind of like the embedded player which has all the tracks in it listed, so if you want to see that, go here.

And here's a *BIG* version of the album cover if you care to look. Album art is easier when you are a hobbyist photographer too. :)


Nice work, thoughts below.

Gray 1 - F*cking epic.
Gray 2 - Different, FluffyAudio Dominus is well spooky here, reminds me of maybe a videogame soundtrack?
Gray 3 - Ominous Latin Chanting! Also epic.
Gray 4 - Nice brass on this one
Gray 5 - Deffo my favourite... I'll be Bach!

Thanks. :grin: The boingy bassline was a late addition, I recorded quite a bit for the track last year that just didn't seem to work when I came back to it.

Also an experiment in using f# locrian, supposedly you cannot make music in that mode without it being a dissonant mess lol... figured it was worth a shot.

:lol:

I can't think what you mean. :lol:

I do need to make some more music... desktop computer is in for repair at the moment though and some of the stuff I want is on it.

Otherwise plodding along on Covid Island. :freak:
