Sunday Synth Jam: This video, via reader Geert Bevin, captures his looping arrangement of the Game Of Thrones theme on Eigenharp Alpha.
Here’s what he’s got to say about the performance:
Here?s a cover of the theme from ?Game of Thrones? that I?ve been working on and even though it’s not perfect yet, I thought it’s good enough to show some of natively modeled sounds of the Eigenharp.
The cello and the violin you?re hearing are the built into EigenD and tweaked a bit in terms of frequency and convolution to my liking. The rest are samples, ?Epic Toms? and ?Requiem Pro? from 8DIO, I?m also using Mobius for audio looping and triggering it both from a MIDI foot pedal and the Eigenharp.
All sounds were played live and recorded independently on separate tracks, then mixed afterwards.
“A Laibachised song is sometimes more kitsch, sometimes more serious and sometimes more emotional than the “old original” it is based on,” says author Alexei Monroe. ”Laibachisation re- and de-animates a song, reviving it for long enough to dispatch it again.”
