Dark Mana – by Orlandicus September 2021

Summary

The bass is acoustic and was recorded in a music studio at school. The production and after effects also happened on school site, special thanks to the music department for letting me record acoustic samples. The eerie effect is created by using atmospheric synthesizers. The piano was played on an electric piano with added effects. Towards the beginning I recorded a cymbal and reversed the sound to construct a riser effect. At the end of the piece drifts into white noise, this creates the effects of the piece traveling into the clouds. Quietly. Peacefully.

Summary

I started working on this piece on the 5th of July and completed it a week later, but the effects that I added after took longer. Overall I used a mixture of genres of music and combined it into a fusion. With the Synthesizers, I’ve added special effects to create a distant sound. I got my inspiration from a George Michael song from his 1996 album Older, especially the drum pattern.
