Fantasy Soundtracks Ep:2 - 'Zombie'

Published on Jun 6, 2020 DreamsOfWires

"2nd 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: The Dual LFO, CV Mix, and Sample & Hold modules are the brains of the piece, modulating the two voices. The Precision Voltages is also being used as a kind of faux keyboard to shift the pitches of one of the three VCO's melodically. Noise from the Entropic Doom module is being filtered by the Fixed Filter Bank 914. Some EOS2 Reverb is used on the melodic voice, and just a little on the percussive track.

I'm not a big fan of zombie movies anymore, but this memorable scene from Lucio Fulci's 'Zombie Flesh Eaters' still remains my favourite moment from any such film, and has stood the test of time well. I think it's a bit of a classic.
