Entombed (Late Halloween Remix)
Alright... this one came a bit too late for the promised Haloween radio show on SlayRadio, but I got so satisfied with the idear, that I wanted to do this one properly, and not rush to conclusions :O)
I always liked the original game, most likely because of my fascination with fantasy and egyptian folklore (there is a reason as to why Kefrens was the name I came up with for our AMIGA group back in the 80's and 90's... including the ANKH symbol)... for those who say "80's!? Kefrens was not present then!?"... well... we were, but under a different name actually... just search POUET for "The Startlight Project" and you'll find me and the other REAL Kefrens members there ;O)
With this tune I wanted to create an eerie and sinister sounding tune at the same time... the Harp which is one of my favourite instruments of all time sets the mood perfectly for this tune I think... it was played on my E-mu E5000 sampler, and was sampled note for note from a physical modelling plug on the PC (as I do not use plugs)... it filled more than 70MB in finished form and was recorded in 61 keys at 8 different velocity settings... 480 samples in total in full length... that's why it sound so rich and dynamic.
At the same time I wanted the atmosphere of Zombies and Mummies as the game has this annoying mummy that show up every time you stand still too long... also the intro was meticulously made to give the impression of being trapped inside a pyramid which is the essense of the game in the first place.
The rhythmic egyptian part in the later part of the tune is selfcomposed as I wanted some kind of variation to the tune... I have a hard time doing stuff without SOME kind of energy to it...
Hope you enjoy it... it's one of the odd pieces you'll hear from me...
