1 Nature
stream track Neptune's Invite To Davey
It is called 'Neptune's Invite To Davey' and is constructed with a Binaural recording of Brighton Beach I made and some Subtractive Synthesis using a Synthesizer I created in Reaktor. The concept of the track based around the folklore of 'Davey Jones' Locker' (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Davy_Jones_Locker). How this track relates to the CT-Nature concept... the sea washing up on the shore is a sound that has probably not changed for millions of years, and although we have altered the Nature of the sea via pollution and attempt to harness its powers... the sound of the sea washing and lapping up upon the shore still remains the same...it is a natural sonic environment that has not been substantially altered by human intervention, and if we close our eyes this sound could transport us back millions of years. The Subtractive Synthesis section and the concept of 'Neptune's Invite to Davey Jones' can be thought of as a representation of our effect upon the sea, our imprinting of our ideas and processes upon the sea's natural being.

  poor sea! nothing good's going to happen to it... thrilling.

  the insistent synth riff fits perfectly with the found sound. Aquatic menace!
