    A Primal Dream

    Here's another somewhat strange electronic music project with mostly synth patches and a few sampled orchestral instruments. I added another patch to the repeated lead that first comes in at 1:47 for Rev2.

    Hi Phil,

    Thanks for this 'strange' electronic music. It's not strange at all actually, just somewhat 'unusual' on this forum, but you have been busy a lot with synths and that is quite well noticeable. You're mastering them well, even in combination with so called real (sampled) instruments. Practice makes the master. This is already more than just a soundscape, it expresses a lot of yourself in various colours and approach. Very nice. The contrasting last section proves it. Please go on, Phil, you are so good at it!

    I think video people should pick this up as a great background music. IMHO.

    Hello Jos,

    Well, my composing technique might be a little strange which seems to lean towards tossing sounds and such into a boiling caldron maybe more than a concious effort to achieve envisioned musical ideas. But it seems to work out most of the time. That’s one of the nice things about creating music for a hobby I guess.

    Thanks much for you observation and encouragement!

    That would be wonderful Ted!

    I can imagine how much work it is to compose for video with time restraints and also pleasing the paying customer.

    Hi Phil,
    the music caught me in a sort of story which developed into something exciting and ended quite suggestive. When I see the list of libraries and sounds that you have used I understand that you have put a lot of work into this and the reward is some high quality, innovative and beautiful music.
    I note the two versions rev1 and rev2 but cannot discover any difference.

    Thanks for the compliment Kjell!

    I added another patch to the lead that first comes in at about 1:47. I believe it’s actually the third revision but it’s just that lead that comes in first at about 1:47. Some prodding by one of the regular producers over at the KVR music cafe listening forum to have it cut through my thick mix a little better.

    I like this.. Good ideas. I also appreciate your composing technique, I often use the the same technique. I also liked the virtual instruments you used.. Very much liked the 'sound design' technique in it.. Because you're not using traditional instruments, with harmonics and resonances the human ear has been accustomed to for many hundreds of years, it forces the brain to listen to things differently. It changes the emotional impact, because there is no real analog equivalent in the real world.

    Have you used synths, or done this type of music for a long time? I appreciate it. When synths first came out, I bought an ARP 2600, quit playing in bands, got a job at multi-track recording studio, so I could overdub

    Yeah, keep this up..
