Fantasy Soundtracks Ep:1 - 'Phase IV'

Published on May 31, 2020 DreamsOfWires

"First of a series of simple patches and recordings inspired by some of my favourite vintage sci-fi and horror from the cinema and TV. I thought it'd be a fun idea to see what I can do with a simple setup, perhaps ony 2 analog synth voices, and modest digital effects. The synthesizer soundtracks of the 70's and early 80's were often very simple, spartan compositions, which is what made them special I think.

In this instance I'm using my AJH Synth Eurorack modular synth, with the Precision Voltages being used as a kind of faux keyboard to shift the pitches of the two voices melodically. FX are Dubstation 2 Delay and EOS2 Reverb.

The film 'Phase IV' is a particulary unique sci-fi film from 1974 that I would recommend seeing. It has some excellent macro filming, a strong atmosphere, and even some synth music in the soundtrack. I didn't use any footage of the 'ants' because they really need to be seen in the context of the film to be appreciated.
