Martin Dodd - Thanatos (dragon's dream mix)
The main theme was finally done using a Novation A Station though it started off using a piano type sound.
Was going to be named Thanatos Jarre Vs Vangelis remix.
This track wasn't planned. It was more of an exercise in getting to know my new software sequencer as I usually use an Rm1x to sequence tracks. It just grew from there.
The seagull type FX sound at the end was done using a Novation Bass station with delay.
The track is much slower than the original sid which gives it a different feeling.
Track is made using a combination of Software and Hardware synths.
Because of that, Hubbard's tunes in Jarre-isque soundscapes feel to be extremely natural and smooth. Add musical finesse, attention of details and
one step beyond the originalway of thinking that expands the great base further and spice with classic warm Oxygene synth sounds = you get one of the nicest remixes this year.
For a subjective note, this is my most fav Thanatos remix to date.
