Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

Messing around with some reaktor user libraries, and some of the klang ensembles.

(there is a geiger counter sample being used as a rhythm in here among other odd things)

Don't forget your radiation suit.



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

This is really out there. It kind of feels like wall-e has gone on a massive bender and is stangering around to find his way home. The tension in this is great, it really puts you on edge.

I feel like I'm going to glow in the dark now, having listened to this.

This is experimental and unique, but totally listenable. Not just listenable, but it sounds GOOD.
Dig the use of the geiger counter sample.
..."mine is in the shop..."
Driving but somehow mellow beat; excellent sound choices and programming.
In my opinion, superb sound selection overall, and really great arrangement. The arrangement let the sounds breathe and give them their own time to shine. And I LOVE those reverse sweeps that lead into that big low-end hit like at 2:07-2:08. So impactful.
Excellent.

I'm trying. I really am. I know this is good. I can hear that it's good. I just don't know how to interact with it. When would I listen to this? While in the car driving home from the office? While I'm making dinner? While I'm out weeding the garden? I guess I never realized how addicted I am to words for context. You are further evolved than I am apparently. Ha!
Don't worry though, I still like you.
Maybe.

I was expecting some sort of creepy "Alien" inspired soundscape from having "Geiger" in the title, but this is so much better.
Really nice headphone music.
There's so much going on here; I love it.
The low drone is nice; it grounds all the other sounds.
Sounds like tiny robots communicating with each other.
Yeah, well done.
