A few years ago, I learned of an album that a friend of mine had made a couple of years earlier, and released under a CC BY-NC 3.0 licence.. it's been floating around on my hard-drive ever since, and I had vague ideas of making a HyperRadio Musicpack for it at some point.
Tonight I finally found a round tuit, and got it done.. So here it is, cryostat37
's electronica album, +cataclysm+
It's a musical journey, so properly speaking, the tracks should be played in order, but they stand up well on their own.. the journey gets a little dark, as the title suggests, but IMO ends on a hopeful note.
Here are cryostat37's own notes on the album:
This album was written in around 2003-5 when I worked as a lab tech in a college in Liverpool. I was supposed to submit just a 3min track but ended up submitting the second half of this album. Although being fairly tech savvy, it was the first time I'd encountered Reason (music software) so that's responsible for most of the noise with cubase running the sequencing side of things and samples.
This is my second proper album, the first one had too many songs about badgers, so I wrote this instead. This has nothing to do with badgers but is all about us puny humans who have the intelligence, stupidity and it appears the premeditated intent to wipe ourselves from the fossil record along with everything else.
