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 for the hook-up!
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.
Thanks to David at St Andrews for arranging it, and to the Higher Power, for letting me record in his house!
UPDATE: You can hear the drums on many tracks including “Battle Of The Gods” on my release “Built From Memories” and my cover of Roy Orbison’s “In Dreams“.
Since this post was written I have release many more tracks! Check out my discography here.
Alternative Blueprint Records – music for specialists
It’s 16 of Raymond’s best Bits remixed by 16 experimental artists. Listen to the Automated Acousticsremix of “Lullaby”.
From the album’s website:
“Cyclic Bits” is the first remix album of the music of remarkable composer and inventor Raymond Scott.
This album is a series of reinventions of the work of a true musical maverick, remixed by a host of today’s most inventive musical mavericks. The diversity of the release reflects the profound influence Scott’s work has had on composers working across the board of styles and approaches.
Originally created as a special for Ergo Phizmiz’s Phuj Phactory on WFMU, a projected release never happened.
This, at last, is it.
