New Musical Track: Weirder Things

Posted by [email protected] on February 8th, 2017

Weirder Things

The new musical track Weirder Things is either a shameless rip-off, or a sincere homage, you’ll have to decide for yourselves. ¬†But know this! I grew up in the 80s. I went to middle school and high school in the 80s and I played D&D in the 80s, so I’m voting for homage!

Like many of you, the brilliant Netflix show, Stranger Things captivated me and brought me back to that decade in the best way. I wanted to write a 10 minute track that took the simple synth arpeggio that defines the original and just riff on it. I even got to work ‘outside the box’ for once, which means I used a few real live synths that I had to physically patch in to my computer (with cables!). Sorry about all the exclamation marks..

I did do a few iterations of this. One of them had bicycle sound effects running through it. Another had a  Ronald Reagan speech in the middle, the one where he muses about an alien force invading earth so our countries would unite against a common foe (google it!). In the end I decided that a purely musical track would be more useful as a backdrop for whatever game you wanted to play.

This was a challenging (mix-wise) piece to produce but lots of fun as well. Hope you enjoy it.
