This is something I had started a while but never finished. Â I recently started working on it again, messing with a lot of effects and giving it more of a progression. Â The drums are sampled from an "I Love You" recording session; they were recorded in a large living room with a four-track. Â I beefed them up with an extra kick and clap. Â The vocal clip is me. Â The rest is synths, pretty much. Â I used Reason v4, and this song gave me a good opportunity to play around with some of the programs many effects and devices and learn how to use them. Â I automated a lot of nobs, and chained a lot of devices with the Combinator. Â I played with the vocoder, and learned that you can do cool stuff by running non-verbal vocals into it. Â I hope you enjoy.
This is what the song made me think of: A lonely, dusty robot hears a signal from earth. Â A human! Â It replies, trying to imitate the sound.
That's just me, though - draw your own conclusions.
This was someone's high school project.
