T-101 - Elysium

My entry to Stream Ten, the final Stream Party. This ended up winning the listening music compo.

I was suffering with a handful of ideas when I was writing this, they didn't quite latch on the way I wanted. I then one night watched the movie Gladiator, and decided to try to sample some of its more memorable quotes. Adding those to the mix really made the difference I wanted and somehow the song became more clear. I also snatched the title for the track from the same movie, obviously. After that the pieces just fell into place, and the tune that started out as ADHD ideas, suddenly ended up sounding like, well, me :)

In a more technical aspect: I am finally starting to the get a grip of Reaper. At first it seemed to have a frustrating learning curve whereas compared to my previous software, Orion. The guitars are real as always, played using an ESP baritone downtuned guitar and a Line6 DAW with my own custom presets. Drums are DFH, Bass is Broomstick bass and the synths are Toxic. The various delays and effects used in the vox are also from the Line6 package.

So there you have it! Stream Ten was AWESOME, btw :) Hope you were there, we had a blast. Time to go now. Catch y'all laterz. T-101 signing off.
