New track and video- Breakaway

Post by madtheory » Sat Jan 01, 2022 10:03 pm

2021 was a strange year. Everyone had struggles and some much more than others. I personally found strength through taking time out to be in nature, make music and be with loved ones. This is what I would like to share with you here :)

This is a minimalist composition with minimal musical parts. I used Kontakt electric guitar, Arturia MiniV for the bass, heavily edited Air Music Tech Strike for drums and percussion, Peter Siedlaczek strings- that was an interesting one! The original 9MB Akai S1000 string ensemble with baked in reverb sounded better than the full-fat mulit-layered equivalent in Kontakt. Sound Toys EchoBoy was used heavily for ambience and distorted repeats.

Also in the mix is a Casio CT-6000! I actually used an auto-accompaniment (that got replayed and edited too).
