I imagined that Michelangelo Antonioni called me up and asked me to provide a soundtrack for an imaginary movie he was filming in the desert. Naturally, I said yes. I decided the music should be at home both on the desolate hot plain of Death Valley and in the cold dark confines of Laserium. The music establishes a cadence that is repeated with very subtle variation over the course of 5 minutes, layers building to a conclusion that is intentionally speaker rattling and possibly destroying. Rather than box sequence this, all instruments are played live over the original repeating line done on the Kurzweill K2000. A Roland JX3P and the Kurzweill provide the strings, which are layered individual notes combined to create some variation in tone. Moog, OSCar, Mellotron and Emax samples are mixed throughout with software synths, then pushed through the Waves Kramer tape simulator to add analog warmth. Which is a long way of saying it sounds kind of Ummagumma to me.
