Tim Forsyth - Thanatos (when the panic sets in)
This track is about the past 12 months that we've all been forced to try and struggle through.
A few weeks ago, I started experimenting with ambient sounds, recording everyday things, twisting and distorting them to make interesting textures.
One thing led to another and much to the amusement of my wife, I was recording myself walking and running up and down the garden, slamming doors, taping the washing machine spin cycle and lots of other crazy things that ended up being scrapped.
As it turned out, Thanatos chose itsself for this track.. while noodling on the Piano to some of the sounds I had made, I accidentally found Rob's music. It reminded me that I always wanted to do a slow piano version of this but never found the right mood until now. Incidentally, I only discovered recently that this was a cover of Julian Breeze's Spectrum version.
I hope I've found some of the sadness, beauty and emotion in the original track.
