mostly a session view jam, with very minor edits after live arranging it. shreddage hydra / addictive drums / eurobass 2 / archetype gojira / ample metal hellrazer + guitar rig 6 for clean guitar, damage 1 for cinematic drums,. spire for intro bass synth., ozone for mastering. also its based on a melody /progression from my 3rd and yet unleased album
A fire is known to spread from room to room, engulfing the furniture around it. My track is known to spread from dynamic to dynamic, resulting in something super quiet turning into something super loud.
The whole track is just one giant increase in dynamics. We start with some very short decay synths, that eventually open up into a sort of textured synth. Soon we get perc loops, followed by different shades of chords and modulations, followed by more layers of chords, then 2 string pads, then drums, then more drums, then full on string section, then lead melody, then bell sounds, the acid, then more synths. It's one giant buildup basically.
Am i going too far? Perhaps, but it was a fun experiment nonetheless that i always wanted to try one compo. Really the challenge is how loud can you handle it? Hope you like this weird mess lol.
