no singing this time. just a sound track for a recurring dream.
less is more. or less. I'm not sure.

Less is more.

The song reminds me those spy films set in the cold war, maybe sixties. The main character is a double agent and he is been chased by the several groups in a cold night. It is foggy, perhaps we are in London...

To be continued.

Thanks for sharing and thanks for firing my imagination!

:D

Ooooh, I LIKE that! Nuno's close....sounds like the soundtrack for one of those Edgar Wallace or Hitchcock mysteries - along the lines of "Man Of Mystery" by The Shadows. I love The Shads, and you've done a nice job of capturing Hank's tone AND updating it for the 21st century.

:D :D :D :D :D (worth the extra couple of smileys!)

I have been watching 40's/50's film noire of late. love that saturated black and white film and hard edge detective dialogue.
Hitchcock's films of that era are so full of characters and fatal irony.
I have my strat saturated in reverb and a mambo beat slowed way down.
presto. spaghetti western mambo psycho thriller...'shock corridor' .
thanks for listening.

yup. Sketti western vibe big time. Well done. I can see Clint chewing on that nasty looking cigar right now. :)

LOL. I have to watch myself lately. since I have been watching Deadwood, the raw western HBO series, my scatology is flying.

thanks for listening.

Cool! The tone of the guitar is just plain nasty, I don't know where such a sound would normally occur but I hope I'll never end up there. Tiny suggestion, maybe have a few parts where the drum goes more minimalistic, and maybe sometimes layering the bluesharp parts over the guitar, maybe faded with some high-diffusion verbs?

I love my strat. the tone; straight in, bridge pickup, picking about a inch from the bridge.
you read my mind. I made Shock Corridor with the intent of broadening my recording experiences. I have yet to delve very deep into recording, as you can tell. I will use this piece to work with Automation, and other recording techniques. I also have been recording tracklets of sounds. tracklets= samples, tastes.
I hear those things you hear arjen.
thanks so much for listening and commenting.

Nice mood music. Like the beat too, I was halfway through it before I realized it wasn't a real drummer. Drum machines usually drive me up the wall but the drum track adds quite a bit to the composition.
