Grand Central Remix


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Industrial Rhythm.

Me...live rhythm...modified loops of some sort. Drifting industrial and synth sounds. Maybe a bit moody. It came from thinking about Grand Central Station in NY, late at night...looking at an old photo I had taken...in another lifetime. an ominous, unpredictable sort of place. No matter how many times someone passes through that station, there is an uneasiness, an anticipation of both the known and the unknown, a sense of glory and dispair...depth on the edge. Awe mixed with fear mixed with beauty mixed with life, mixed with lust mixed with death. It is a place that attacks your senses, the air permiated with the smell of grease, electricity, sweat, blood, tears, sex, life, death...A giant cavern of emotion where every kind of person is, or has been through time joined with the sounds and rhythms of the trains, the ticking clocks, the clattering feet, the chattering voices, the screeching wheels...A place where amidst the densest crowds or emptiest spaces one can feel absolutely at once...alone, thrilled, terrified, intoxicated...alive.


Grand Central is the giant pumping heart of the city supplying the blood and oxygen of humanity through its veins.

I think I have the orig GB files if anybody is interested in doing something with this.

Nice moody sounds
I can imagine this being used as a soundtrack piece to a
Michael Mann thriller.....I like the way the sounds build
throughout the piece.

I've spent a lot of time wandering about Grand Central...especially ominous
during the late hours of the night...or the wee wee hours of the morning.

Interesting
Love the bass line and how it interacts with the
percussives. Lot of interesting noises and sounds- sort of
dark yet sort of not... if that makes any sense. Glad to see
you posting!

Visions...
of an empty subway terminal with distorted shadows on the walls, a feeling of dread and foreboding is what comes to mind when I close my eyes and listen to this. Nice sound bed for some lyrics. Hmmmmm.

awesome production
this song reminds me of a radiohead song. i can hear thom
yorke singing over this with some sort of computer-sounding
bit destruction distortion on it. there you go, ask radiohead
if they'll collab with you! i like the way new instruments are
constantly introduced to keep things interesting and new.

Sounds like something I'd listen to late at night...
...and then get scared and have to turn it off.

Great creepy interesting ambience.

Cool
It's the theme music for some bad-ass character in an action
movie. Very cool. Great choice of textures. Unfortunately it
cuts off abruptly at the end.

Shit!
I filled in a comment then voted before posting and lost it
all!

So, quickly this time:

Like it a lot - shame it ends abruptly - can't you finish it?

Would be a shame to add lyrics - strong as an
instrumental.

Made me think of a factory/laboratory.

one.

People have
sex in the Grand Central terminal?
This sounds as if everything is moving along at a steady rate. I didn't find it scary but rather upbeat. Thanks.
