The main idea of this track was at first inspired by some music by Scandy (from Combichrist), but when I began working on it; I got another idea - to morph the drum beats from drum machines to become an acoustic set. This again gave me the idea to do the same thing with tb303 vs metal-el.bass and synth vs guitar! I guess the genre would be something like psyprog or…
I usually use my ‘71 Ibanez SG for the basic guitar picking - and enhance the rest with the help of my headset, my computer, and lots of hardware-knobs!
On this song I used my daughter’s 2/3-sized guitar (Morgan Legend Series Strat), with IK’s Amplitube (Hendrix), a GMedia PhatBoy, and a Novation XioSynth 25!
It is not really mixed at all. While recording I use a Sennheiser HD600 headset, but inbetween I bounce a downmix of the tracks and listen to it om my studio monitors, or my mp3-player.
The acoustic guitar sound early in the track supposed to be crystal-overdrive and distorted (I hate it), but the harddrive died minutes after this downmix!
I still got the main scores, but I’m not sure if I should give this one another try.
I don’t know if I should let it stay dead - or dig it back up and give it new life?
Since this track is far from finished; it would be great with som feedback!
Tell me which part you love/hate the most - and I’ll listen!
Many of the instruments are there only for testing purposes, but I believe you catch the trip…
