I have a love/hate relationship with SOV (shot on video) flicks. Some are okay but most are almost unbearable. That being said some do have some nice synth scores and 1983's Sledgehammer is no exception. The music is credited to Ted Prior, Marc Adams and Philip G. Slate. It has a nice hypnotic feel to it with lots of dread. I have no idea what was used on the original but I dusted the old Prophet-6 off and decided to give it some love. Everything you hear in the track is from the P6, including the phaser and delay effects.

Enjoy!

My relationship with the home video (and found footage) gimmick is only a deep hatred, but hey, you got some nice sounds going there.

Thanks. My only issue with SOV stuff is the run times and lack of discipline. When a bad movie is shot on film there is still a discipline and craft to it because itís expensive and every shot costs money but then with video these people were just shooting and shooting and shooting and never stopping. So everything, every shot, every scene just drags and drags and the run times start to go into 100 plus minutes...itís agony. Lol

Sledgehammer isn't too bad though but once you start getting to Blood Lake...ugh forget about it.

What's even worse is when these sort of flicks infected big budget movies with the whole documentary style of shooting craze. Every time the camera man goes to zoom-in I'd like to slap them upside the darn head and then gently introduce them to a little device called the Steadicam. At least those home video flicks had no real editors and what little editing they do have they at least have the decency of not being versed in the school of Michael Bay, unlike the hacks that worked on Hurt Locker, Captain Philips, etc. Such projectile vomit inducing imagery because you think the cameraman and editor should be characters in your lousy movie.

Sorry for the rant, but it gets my blood boiling!  :P

You would absolutely love Mad Doctor Of Blood Island (easily in my top ten favorite films) all the scenes with the monster have a constant zoom in zoom out effect...like a demented heart beat.

Back to the birds.... well sorta... these are real owls.   Recorded Barred Owls in my backyard this summer on my phone, so I figured I'd incorporate that into a song. Sampled a banjo I had in my basement using Omnisphere.  All the pads are the Summit synth, which is pretty capable of dreamy pads.

Goodness gracious, Soundquest, those were beautiful chord progressions and a gorgeous pad!  Lovely.

We have barred owls here in Massachusetts.  Their song is described as asking, "Who cooks for you?  Who cooks for youuuuu?"  I hear these humorous cries all the time when I'm hiking; they're the sound of home sweet home to me.

Thanks Sacred Synthesis.  Yes those were Barred owls indeed.  I live by the park and they will occasionally gather in a tree in my neighbors yard for a hoot fest.

Hey all you groovy cats! I wanted to do something different for this Halloween and different than my usual soundtrack work. I was going through some original movie posters I have collected over the years and stumbled across an fantastic one sheet for the awesome 70s grindhouse flick 3 On A Meathook and immediately I felt inspired to do an orginal track.

The Prophet X is doing everything from the lo-fi piano at the beginning to the rock organ and electric finger bass.

The Tempest is doing a steady groovy with a lot of swing.

I hope you guys enjoying it and have a Happy Halloween.

Halloween by John Carpenter
'Tis the Season

Most of the fun sounds, including all the strings and bass pedals, are coming from two Prophet Rev2's.

Excellent rendition. Man 5/4 time really is hard to nail properly. Took me about 3-4 attempts just to get everything in time with my cover.

Incredible to think the original was just done with a Moog System 55 and upright piano. Even the beat was actually just sequenced white noise on the Moog.

Many thanks. That means a lot coming from you!

I didn't actually know that until I read it on your YouTube channel! I always assumed that there was a Prophet 5 in there somewhere.

Btw, in addition to your Carpenter work, I really enjoy your Ennio Morricone pieces and the one I heard that you said was inspired by him. I have a few covers by him on my YouTube channel, although, alas, they have no Sequential gear in them.

Thanks again.

I've no music to contribute today, but as it's Halloween, I'll instead point out that John Carpenter is my ex-cousin-in-law. Huh!

Oh it's this time of the year again  ;D I love your cover. Thumbs up on Youtube!

As I explained when Lobo did his cover last year (or is it already two years ago?) I'm not really into horror films, but Halloween is one of the few series of film that I actually watched. I liked this theme from the first moment I heard it. When I was a teenager I used a slight variation of this tune on the piano which moved around the circle of fifths until I arrived back in the first key. It was a nice exercise to learn all the minor keys.

That's exactly how I feel! I like suspense movies, such as those by Hitchcock and Shyamalan, but I rarely like horror. I like The Shining and at this time of year, I find myself sometimes enjoying Halloween. ...But I've always loved the soundtracks! My son (turning 26) is a huge fan of horror and has seen all the classics going back to the beginning of the genre, and so sometimes he points me in the right direction. My brother turned me on to the Unsolved Mysteries theme over the summer, which I recorded... I still haven't seen a single episode.

Eddie Van Halen Keyboard Tribute - 1984 & Jump

Does the world really need another 1984/Jump - Eddie Van Halen Keyboard Tribute? Clearly not. And yet, since 1984, I have been haunted by the quest to perfect these sounds. I have repeatedly tweaked these patches over the years, and only recently feel like I have something worthy of the original. All these years later, itís remarkable how much fun it still is to play. The passing of Eddie prompted me revisit this, and I think the Prophet Rev2 is the perfect instrument for the job. I used a CreativeSpiral Template from his VCM Prophet Rev 2 sound bank as a starting point.

Jason,

Fantastic, really nailed the sound perfectly.  But as a drummer, I gotta ask- how did you get Alex to come over and record that drum track? ;)
