Another Disquiet assignment. I picked a random part (4/9) from a sci-fi short story read by the Author Malka Older. Her reading should sound intelligble and clear throughout the track and a significant part of the accompanying sounds should stem from Malka’s voice.
I ended up using part 4, because of the feeling I got when I heard it. I just wanted to create a mish mash og music and sfx, but I didn’t want to be too literal, even though there is a bit about money and power. I fixed the Vox so it kind of existed in an undefined place, but maybe in a small space buried under tonnes of old dirt and rock relaying a story. I processed bits of the lines in multiple instances of Form and Valhalla Room getting a good dronepad going, then I created some rhythms in Battery and sprinkled everything with distortion and saturation.
