Post-apocalyptic Nightlife

December 9th 2008 by

I rarely make slow and quiet songs. In an effort to stretch my boundaries I created this song. It features a reversed vocal sample, and liberal use of delay. I added lots of clicking with Ableton's vinyl distortion effect. I also used a percussion sample, triggered semi-randomly, which was hooked to a random velocity effect. 

It is a theme for lonely nights spent crossing wastelands, and resting in abandoned towns.

    Very nice. Reminds me of some good dj shadow and massive attack.
