Dimethyltryptamine, abbreviated DMT, is "the most psychedelic drug known to man." I came up with this song while in the shower at around 11:30PM one night while thinking about what a DMT trip might be like. I haven't done any drugs, I was just curious and thought it would be a good mental trip.
Ironically, DMT is produced in the brain. It's also produced in just about every living creature and can be distilled from plain grass. This is even more ironic because it's a highly illegal drug.
It's mainly produced during REM sleep (dreaming stage). A large amount is released when people are close to death for reasons that are currently unknown (to my knowledge, at least).
So anyway, this song uses a bunch of weird ideas I had and effects I had lying around in Omnisphere. In fact, this was actually the first song I started working on which uses Omnisphere!
It's been a lot of fun, and... honestly, a LONG time since I started making this. I mean come on, I started it 3 months ago and have since almost gotten into triple digits with the amount of time I've spent in the DAW. (pics or it didn't happen, right? http://i.imgur.com/HvOznk V.png) And I'm still not totally happy with the end. Urgh.
NOTE: This isn't your typical jazz, and I'm not going to pretend that it is. Please don't complain about how "this doesn't have a jazz bass" or "this doesn't use real instruments" or some kind of personal definition of jazz. Jazz is "characterized by improvisation, syncopation, and usually a regular or forceful rhythm", to quote google. Thanks for your understanding. :)
-Enjoy your acid trip!
P.S. Thanks to camoshark for that sexy saxophone and trumpet which took ages to splice and rearrange into the solos but ended up sounding pretty darn awesome!
