The Making of: Supercontinuum

It was an old idea, probably 8 years old by now as I got it back at the university. “Supercontinuum” means, in layman’s term, a rainbow laser. So that’s pretty much what you can see on the cover:

 

It’s quite an ephemereal phenomenon unlike anything observed in nature, and so is the sound design for this track. Not a single subtractive synth was used in the making of “Supercontinuum”, and samples were very sparse too. Main lead is string morphing smoothly into flute thanks to Harmor. Bassline comes from newly purchased FM8. Pseudo-acoustic instruments is Chromaphone 2, some atmoshperes come from Iris 2 and Ableton Operator is also there.

Last, but not least – all the melodies and harmonies were created by AI. It’s all Orb Composer, and in fact I started to create this track immediately after I purchased the tool back in 2018. Took me many months and three attempts to get anywhere with it. In fact, I been adding final touches in August 2019. Even though the track was signed immediately, it still took several months to get the remixes done by Sublitrance and LTM.

Supercontinuum out now!

Double hit this week. Now, Supercontinuum is my first single that got remixes from other artists. Check this beautiful progressive / melodic / pure / epic trance on Tecnomind Music.

Spotify

Beatport
Juno
Amazon

Now, this is an interesting production for many reasons. I will tell all the story behind it in another blog post.

Conquering all frontiers

Two different tracks are coming just in March. Different labels, different styles. One thing in common – it’s awesome trance.

First, Native Aliens is full-on commercial psy that hits hard. Because I wanted to make something typical for once. Coming on March 16 at Aftertime Records run by Leo Itskovich.

Native AliensSupercontinuum

Supercontinuum is a progressive / epic trance tune with elaborate composition utilizing AI as well as exotic synth selection. It was supposed to be many things, but eventually style feels much like Solarstone. Probably the most easy-listening track from me yet.

Featuring two remixes, coming on March 20th at my home label Tecnomind Music.

Dreams of Grandeur double EP

Long time no update.
But now I’m back with another double EP!

Dreams of Grandeur Inverse Universe EP

Double trance EP with different tunes that have one thing in common – unusual composition using exotic key changes.

Available now in the Internet near you:
Beatport
iTunes
Juno

Inverse Universe 2018 is actually a rework of my old tune from 2013, with little changes in composition but day and night difference in quality.

Dreams of Grandeur is an idea I’ve had stuck in my head for years… done completely different.

I also got quite positive opinions about this EP. Suprisingly more people appreciated the unusual key changes rather than didn’t like it. So there’s a room for experimentation in trance, too!

As usual, I’ll discuss every track from this EP in separate article. In the meantime, enjoy!

New freebie: My Little Room

“My Little Room” was originally made some years ago as a counterpart to Bliss. It’s the odd one, though, and I can’t even think of many labels that could be potentially interested in it. So I give it away for free. Luckily it already gathered great opinions from listeners, now you can enjoy it too! 🙂
