MD4352 Making Tracks: Synthesis Composition

For the third set task set in MD4352, I was instructed to create a 2-5 minute track using only synthesizers as the focus of the song.

With the idea of heavy electronica in mind, this song is a remix of a previously composed song I had made.

This song was influenced by the original context from the original piece, so the instruments have been designed to reflect this. Compared to the original, this is a slower and heavier rendition. The bass elements lead the song while natural piano and granulated vocal sample shine out to create an unsettling soundscape of abhorrent, rageful insanity. This song features an organ created in an instrument rack using wavetable synthesis; along with the gritty basslines, it is one of the central key points of the composition.
