My first film score project has come and gone. In 3 weeks, I managed to compose 90+ minutes of music in 3 weeks. It was intense.
To celebrate, I’ve distilled the music into a 70-minute soundtrack album (entitled Afterpulse). You can download it for free:
- Download Afterpulse .zip (83.8M, 160kbps MP3 files)
The name of this movie cannot be stated, since this is an “unofficial” soundtrack. But I will drop some hints, so clever readers can figure it out:
- The initials of the film are F.W.A.
- If you view my IMDB profile, you’ll see a link to the film.
- The director’s first film was called Shiner.
Q. Is this legal?
A. Probably. This is not an “official” soundtrack. The film company owns the versions used in the movie. So I remixed /rearranged each track (also to make the tracks more listenable, and “flow” better.)
Q. Why are you releasing this for free?
A. Because I like sharing my work. And I want exposure, because I’m a badass.
Q. What kind of music is it?
A. Techno vs. industrial vs. horror vs. ambient. Since I was on a 3-week timeline, the results are quite different from what I produce “normally.”
Q. What equipment did you use?
- Kurzweil 2500S
- Dual 1.8ghz G5
- Home-brewed software (C++, Perl) for generating melodies / textures / harmonies / creepy sounds / FFT weirdness
- Pro Tools 6.7 & an MBox
- 100+ gigabytes of samples, amassed over 15 years of my life
- Circuit bending, with a drum machine, NES “Miracle” keyboard, and many other unfortunate devices
- A lot of tea
Q. Can I download the tracks one at a time?
A. Sure, go here: http://freedeath.org/audio/Afterpulse/.
Update 2007 April 1 : Now there is CD artwork!! These files are in TIFF format.
To come: some bonus tracks! Woo hoo. I’m really tired.
