'Tis The season.....

I've been sitting on this track a while and figured I'd post it seeing as Halloween is just around the corner. Here is a tribute to the fun slasher flick Hack-O-Lantern. Although there are nods to Greg Haggard's awesome synth score, it's not a direct cover.

The Prophet X is firing on all cylinders with user samples. Prophet 2000 pipe organ and rock guitar as well as DX7 Tubular Explosion. There is also a custom piano patch I made from the factory samples in the PX which is based on the Korg M1's Magic Piano.

The Tempest is doing a driving beat on a "Tom Cart" kit with loads of reverb.

Hope you enjoy and remember...

The Power.....is in the blood!

This isn't exactly a "Halloween" track, but it's partly inspired by Svankmajer's Faust. And maybe this is a good moment to point out that I'm John Carpenter's ex-cousin-in-law!! (Take 'em where we find 'em, right?)

Prophet 5 - bass (run through Arturia's Juno 6-type chorus) and main verse chords. Juno 6 - chorus chords. Prologue - descending strings. VC340 - held strings. Danelectro via Rat into ZT amp- guitar. Digitakt - drum patter (Drumtraks samples). Original drum loop - Brad Cross. The solos are done on the Yamaha CP, with a wah-clav thing happening and played from a Prophet 6 for pitch bends etc. Have to say how much I love the CP - an all-time fav keyboard.

Hope you dig!

Thanks much, jok3r! I don't often think my music reflects the seasons so well, but once in a while a tune does feel like it belongs to autumn or winter or summer or such. And this song is enough about the "ghost" of a relationship to sit easy on the Halloween border. Meanwhile, it's still amusing that the Juno 6 is a "new" discovery for me. Now that I own one, I can suddenly hear it on a million songs from back when. If the Prophet 5 keeps this song grounded, it's the Juno 6  that lifts it off the ground.

I haven't been in the studio much recently so I decided to go back through some older tracks and give them a proper video release. I did this track just a bit after I got the ISLA S2400. I'm a big fan of Jim Manzie's work and I've done a tribute to his score for Leatherface TCM III so I figured I'd try my hand at another track of his.

I'm a huge fan of the original Pumpkinhead and the score for that by the late Richard Stone perfectly blended some traditional folk and bluegrass elements with brooding horror soundscapes. Jim Manzie did the same for the sequel but in my view, gave an actual theme to the story with it's driving main tune.

No idea what Jim used but for this I used the Prophet X and S2400 together. They really are a killer combo.

The PX-Loaded with Emulator 2 sounds (slap bass, piano, strings) and PX's factory dobro guitar.

The S2400 is doing some percussion with EMU samples.

Everything is done in almost one take with the only overdub being the dobro guitar. Enjoy!

There's a link at the end for a "Making Of" video, where I talk about the sounds I used.

Nice one! I do wonder if Vangelis' score for Blade Runner isn't one of the greatest soundtracks ever. So vital to scenes on screen. Really impressive tribute you've done here, Jason.

Very well done, Jason.  All classic sounds - the types you can never grow tired of - including the white noise at the end.

Here's a sparkly little synthpop song I made recently with Pro 3 voicing all the parts except drums.  It came together really quickly, because the Pro 3 makes good sounds really easily, and the Force helps with the rest of the workflow.

I love how little effort it takes to get good sounds out of this thing.  It's just overflowing with juicy synth goodness.

Here's an odd one, maybe. It's from 2010, but it popped to mind again as I've just uploaded the album it's from, Psychedelic Mynde of Moses, to Bandcamp in time for BCF. Anyway, the song is from a time when I was drifting back into a synth-fixated mindset. Of all things, it was coming down with swine flu while living in the UK that did it. I started having fever dreams about synths and became obsessed all over again like I had been as a teen. The song itself is dedicated to Tony Dale, a fellow who ran the Camera Obscura label in Australia. We knew he wasn't going to live much longer and those that knew him - at his request, in case it seems morbid otherwise - put together a collection of songs for him. My friend Karen made the film for the song. The only synth I owned at the time - and thus the one synth on this track - was a Korg R3. I quite liked that one, but sold it ages back when I needed money for proper analogue gear! Hope you enjoy this moody tune... https://vimeo.com/13623878?fbclid=IwAR1KO1k9ztrUrkrWutM7qhvAhbHsLP6JcSt6VcnwCZ44umruhxMghhrdEpQ
