THE DIRECTOR’S CUTS – STATIC

ONE OF THE HISTORICAL PERIOD THAT HAS ALWAYS BEEN VERY FASCINATING FOR ME IS THE Cold War. FOR OVER FOUR DECADES FROM END OF WORLD WAR II TO THE FALL OF BERLIN WALLUNITED STATES AND SOVIET UNION HAVE BEEN IN A SITUATION OF HIGH TENSION. BOTH SIDES OF THE WORLD STARTED TO BUILD A NUCLEAR ARSENAL TO PUT FEAR IN THE OTHER, KEEPING ALL THE WORLD BREATHLESS AND SCARED OF A POSSIBLE ATOMIC WAR. THE ONLY THING THAT SAVED THE WORLD FROM A POSSIBLE END HAS BEEN … CONTINUE READING

THE DIRECTOR’S CUTS – NAKED

WHEN I WROTE THE MUSIC FOR THIS SONG MY GOAL WAS TO CREATE AN ALTERNATIVE BALLAD THAT MIX ELEMENTS OF INDUSTRIAL, CINEMATIC SOUNDTRACK AND ROCK.

THE MUSIC PROGRESSION IS SIMPLE BUT THE CHORDS ARE PLAYED WITH NOTES ON DIFFERENT OCTAVES THAN THE USUAL STANDARD. THIS TO TRY TO GIVE TO THE CHORDS A DIFFERENT TASTE THAT BETTER FITS INTO THE CONCEPT OF THE TRACK.

THE SOUNDS ARE VERY INDUSTRIAL, CREATED BY EPIC CINEMATIC PERCUSSIONS, BIG PADS, SEQUENCED SYNTHS AND EFFECTED PIANOS.

WHEN JON LISTENED THE SONG HE IMMEDIATELY WANTED TO … CONTINUE READING

THE DIRECTOR’S CUTS – VIRUS

IT ALL STARTED WITH A REPETITIVE BIG LEAD DISTORTED SYNTH SOUND (THAT YOU CAN HEAR ON THE BEGINNING OF THE SONG) I CREATED ON A VST. LIKE A BIOHAZARD ALARM THAT METAPHORICALLY CAN REPRESENT TO THE LISTENER A VIRUS THAT REPLICATE ITSELF. THE CONCEPT OF REPLICATION IS IMPORTANT IN THE WHOLE IDEA OF THE VIDEO.

I’VE ALWAYS THOUGHT THAT A GOOD RIFF IS THE KEY FOR A GOOD ROCK SONG AND THIS IS WHAT I TRIED TO DO FOR THIS TUNE.

WHAT I WANTED TO CREATE FROM THE BEGINNING … CONTINUE READING

THE FOREST

WHILE LISTENING TO A SPOTIFY‘S PLAYLIST OF CLASSICAL MUSIC I REALISED FOR THE FIRST TIME HOW SUCH A WONDERFUL COMPOSITION IS LA PAVANE BY GABRIEL FAURE’ IS. I HAD A VISION IN MY MIND ABOUT A VIDEO AND I IMMEDIATELY DREW A STORY BOARD FOR AN ANIMATION SHORT FILM.

 

WHAT THE SONG WAS SUGGESTING ME WAS A BEAUTIFUL IMAGE OF NATURE. AFTER I FINISHED A FIRST VERSION OF THE ANIMATION I KNEW SOMETHING WAS MISSING, SOME KIND OF FINAL TWIST THAT CAN GIVE A DEEPER MEANING OF THE … CONTINUE READING

SKYLAB – ARTIFICIAL

THE SKYLAB IS A ONE MAN MUSICAL PROJECT CREATING MUSIC THAT CAN BE DESCRIBED MORE OR LESS AS A MIX OF EXTREME METAL, INDUSTRIAL METAL AND SOUNDTRACK. THE MAIN THEMATICS OF THE MUSIC ARE ABOUT THE TECHNOLOGY, FUTURE, SADNESS, LONELINESS, DISTANCE… THE SOUNDS USED INTO THE MUSIC IS MADE BY EXTREME DISTORTED GUITARS AND MANY LAYERS OF SYNTHS LIKE PADS AND SEQUENCERS WITH A LOT OF EFFECTS ON THEM.

ARTIFICIAL IS THE TITLE TRACK OF THE DEBUT ALBUM. IS A SONG WITH VARIOUS CHANGES AND WITH AN EPIC … CONTINUE READING
