A while back, Smarty Pants and his buddy the Mammarian helped me make a soundtrack for the LARP game I’ve been hosting for the last year or so. They did this cool layering thing, with a whole bunch of cool sound effects and music and such. It was incredibly cool.
Had I known that the sun was in the business of making soundtracks that sound like Dead Can Dance and Really Terribly Serious Wolves hanging out with some Horny Whales and maybe a handful of those crazy throat-singing monks thrown in for good measure, I’d have asked them to incorporate this. Like, layered over and over and over and over. Because this is the only thing I want to listen to right now.
Voltaire said something like : “Doubt is not a pleasant condition, but certainty is absurd”. I rather like Voltaire. I rather dig the fact that we are constantly learning. I mean, if we’re doing it right, we’re always learning new things. And this, this music, these beautiful sounds …well. They’re a mystery. I used to watch the northern lights and I imagined I could hear them singing to me. This is how I imagined them sounding, strangely enough.
