A Disturbance in the Clouds by Lux_Seeker published on 2009/06/18 12:50:01 +0000 I got the inspiration for this from Messiaen's "Quartet to the End of Time" and the way he implemented birdsong. My use is more direct with sound effects enhanced by impulse response. The work is a sonic nightmare if you will. I you understand the sequence of sounds you will see how dark this is and how it related to Messiaen's work. The feeling should be that of a person walking out into the bright sun with birds singing and then, without a momements notice, the horror of a distant nuclear attack. I used a number of synths and effects for this. I hate nuclear weapons. This is also in honor of Pendereicki's "Threnody to the Victims of Hiroshima". It is intened as part of a larger CD ROM with text, graphics and short sound loops.
