Rigor Mortis by Sam Raymond published on 2012/11/12 18:21:02 +0000 Rigor Mortis is a minimal, soundtrack style piece. I primarily focused on acoustic instruments, but I still wanted them to sound bizarre. To do that, I did a lot with really weird combinations of reverbs, delays, ring modulation, filter sequencing, and so on. There are actually more tracks of reverbs than dry instrument signals because I ended up treating each effect as an instrument in a sense. As it was coming together, it sounded very depressing. So I thought I would make it a soundtrack/soundscape for someone dying alone in the woods. The composition is very minimal and stiff, so I called it "Rigor Mortis".
