Entering The Dream

from by Soulflier



This is another steel pan drum based song. The song was played in real-time. I played the drum parts and I also mapped the filter and delay settings of a multi-tap delay to a hardware controller and played the effect while I was playing the drums. Those drone overtones and pad like sounds are not traditional synthesizers, they are the result of "playing" the controls of several effect units while playing the drum parts.

The particular instrument, and the pad and drone effects create a very contemplative and pensive atmosphere.
