ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
ABOUT THE ALBUM
This album contains five original instrumental horror soundscapes by Boulder-based synthesist and composer Mark Mosher. Listen in the dark on a great sound system with a sub-woofer or with good headphones and let your imagination run wild! Then remember, it’s all in your head :^)

ABOUT MARK MOSHER
Mark Mosher is a synthesist, composer, and improviser from Boulder, CO. His main instrumentalities include keyboards; AudioCube infrared gestural controllers; grid controllers such as Ableton Push. He uses both hardware and virtual synthesizers. His shows typically fuse the worlds of sound & light synthesis, composition, and experimental Improvisation to create cinematic music experiences.

THE MAKING OF THIS ALBUM
The dark ambient sounds and music within these arrangements was created and performed on various virtual instruments. In some cases original audio recordings were used as sources then re-shaped with granular synthesis to turn these recordings into playable expressive instruments with huge sonic range and motion.

TRACK NOTES

1 - "Primeval"
Amygdala kicks in as you enter the fear zone. Remember, it's all in your head! I use hand crafted synthetic sounds (subtractive and additive synthesis) to create strange tones, textures. and rhythms to build tension. Fast note-runs, and radical tempo changes will creep you out. This piece was performed using Percussa AudioCubes. Note I released this as a single in 2011. Even if you've heard it before, the album version is a new high-resolution remix. For this remix I reprogrammed some of the effects, remixed the track a bit, and then re-rendered with highest quality synth settings. Plus this track and all others were mastered by Gannon Kashiwa and it sounds simply incredible!

2 - "Alone in the Dark"
When you are alone in the dark your mind will play tricks. Over the last year I've been spending time listening to the tone. harmonics, overtones, and distortion created by expressive electric guitar greats like David Gilmour. "Alone in the Dark" is my exploration of expressive manipulation of harmonics and distortion with a single synthesizer patch custom programmed. As a result you'll hear me go beyond the sonic range of guitars into the sub-harmonic realm.

3 - "Fight or Flight"
Your brain is on overload as you run for your life through a dark building searching for the exit. I broke a long complex original audio recording into small chunks called "grains" with a custom patch in a virtual instrument called Absynth. My patch allows me to traverse, manipulate and perform with this massive sample as if it's an expressive instrument with a very unique harmonic palette.

4 - "Under the Spider's Web"
There is a dim golden light ahead in the dark. Between you and the light, there is a spider and of course a large web blocking your path. Was that something crawling down the back of your neck? Like the previous track, this is custom granular synth performance.

5 - "Orbiting Miranda"
Inspired by the film "Serenity". I used a variety of custom programmed virtual synths and effects to create this lush but dark ambient piece. Note I released this as a single in 2011. Even if you've heard it before I recommend you buy the album to get this new high-resolution remix re-mastered by Gannon Kashiwa.
