Twilight’s Echoes of Wonder

Twilight’s echoes of wonder In the deep dark night it lures A serenade of stars

Instrumentation used: Lunacy Audio Cube Synth (with mangled Tapegerms by Blind Mime, Heuristics Inc, Jeff Davis & the Beauregards, Sin:Ned, Suckling Infants Network, James P. Bergman, CIIIGoff, Virtual Religion, David Alexander McDonald, International Garbageman), Klevgrand Tomofon, Arturia CMS80, Native Instruments Pharlight, Casio CT-S1000V Vocal Synthesizer.

This composition was created for submission to the Electronic Cottage compilation project The Vision of Twilight, which is being curated by Chris Phinney of Harsh Reality Music.

The compilation is embedded below and available on Bandcamp for $0 or more.

The Tapegerms used in this recording are a result of a Game Germ which is an app page at which provides a random selection of 10 source audio files for a composer who is challenged to use them all in a new composition. I developed the app a couple of years ago and I find it’s an interesting exercise from time to time. Go check it out.

I’ve taken this set of ten sources and put them into a new software synthesizer called Cube by Lunacy Audio. I’ve begun my own review of it here, but it’s mainly a video from Venus Theory at this point. I’ll add my own thoughts after I’ve worked with it for a while longer.

For this track it provides the evolving, swirling backdrop of whirring and machine and chaotic rumble.

Twilight refers to both early evening and early morning.
