I’m thrilled to announce I landed some music/sound design in this trailer for Alien: Covenant. I’ve always loved the movies, & remember secretly recording Aliens on VHS aged 8, then scaring the shit out of myself & my buddies. It’s an honour to be even a small part of this series. Thanks to Pusher Music in L.A. for making it happen!
I Recorded my biggest drums in a church for a bombastic, epic, celestial, massive Hollywood movie trailer. You just can’t beat real drums, & real reverb.
I recorded on 4 channels in 24/96. Using a mix of Omni, & Cardioid polar patterns for maximum audio flexibility.
It was a truly memorable experience, & I also used the in-house microphone stand, for some extra Holy vibrations.
I’m still editing the 2gb of audio, but will make the tracks public sometime soon. Although I haven’t released any records for a while, I’ve been working under the radar & will put the tracks out soon (ish)…
Thanks to David at St Andrews for arranging it, and to the Higher Power, for letting me record in his house!
