Caravan is a concept ambient fantasy album / atmospheric sound collage. This is only a limited preview of the first 2 tracks of the ~ 16 track album.
Behind the music:
I began writing this in summer 2019. Originally I wanted to simply pay homage to Vektroid and her early works; the strange captivation by the mystery of the music, I especially enjoyed the feeling of uncovering some strange old artefact, a remnant of a culture that's long faded into obscurity. I designed a few wobbly synths, got some tape hiss and ambient recordings and started actually working on some compositions.
They weren't very good and I got bored and put the project on hold and resumed work in March 2020 when I felt it was time to turn it into something more.
I started looking for some more concrete inspiration. Geography, astronomy, history and others...
I listened to ambient recordings of all kind. I added a lot of those sounds into my music. Somewhere along the way I decided to add various string instruments, mostly double bass and viola. I found that to add a nice human element to all the electronic sounds.
One of the first tracks I created, which now bears the name 'The Ruin of Parthenon', used to be called 'Spirit Plane' and it's undergone a series of drastic changes to arrive where it is now. Check out the previous versions on soundcloud:
The Ruin of Parthenon: First version
The Ruin of Parthenon: Second version (after complete revamp)
Perhaps I will write and publish the story in the future once the album is completed, I think that can add depth to the atmosphere, but so far, I have nothing more that I can show.
Release date: sometime in 2022
Genre: ambient electronic
(This is an early sketch)
A fleet of spaceships arrive at a planet which used to be home to a civilization that's for long remained dead. They start exploring the planet and discover many places and artefacts - all for the sake of cataloging their technology and documenting their history. A team of researchers use what they found to piece together a coherent memory of the place.
Project: short soundtrack
Release date: 2020
Originally composed: april 2019
Genre: ambient electronic
Collection of tracks for my ambient animations. Each one scores a different scene from the 'Metal Valley' - a decrepit industrial district inside a once booming cyberpunk metropolis. It depicts the decay of a civilization dependent on high-tech. It was the first soundtrack that I wrote for anything.
Highly inspired by the score for Hyper Light Drifter by Disasterpeace. I borrowed some instrument combinations and modified them to suit my needs. Just to clarify, I didn't steal any actual musical material, only used a similar creative process to compose my tracks.
For anyone who's interested:
Empty Towers is inspired by the track Titan.
Dustcloud is loosely based on track Petrichor.
Eagle's Nest and Hydroplant are more-or-less amalgamations of all the ideas that I've been working with.
Release date: dunno, the futurrrrr!
Genre: lofi electronic/synthwave
Collection of synthwave tracks. It might make an album in the future.
Release date: probably mid-
Collection of edited cues from the soundtrack for Flowerized. It is now still a WIP so this showcase of tracks is very limited.
