Sound of Creation

Author Comments

For a good two months I had been trying to pierce the proverbial stone wall that prevented me from doing anything creative. This piece was slowly worked over this two-month period, where I really felt nothing could come out of me. Where my creative juices would normally flow, this thing would take two hours, tops -- but this took much, much longer because of the dryness I was in.

They say that the way to hear the 'sound of creation' today is to hear noise, or more accurately, static. These are said to be traces of the radiation created during the Big Bang.

Ah, creation. When things were much simpler. When matter slowly formed over thousands of years.

So allow me to go back to the basics with this piece. Sometimes, the only way to go forward is to be thoroughly inspired by what happened in the distant past. This piece may not be as awe-inspiring as the forming of the universe, but I hope it inspires, all the same.

Vocals recorded by yours truly. Also, with a few exceptions, I did my best to stay away from soundfonts, and find individual samples instead. I threw in lock, stock and barrel: static, clocks, chimes... I'm just going to let the song itself speak.



If anyone's curious as to what the vocals actually are, it's a constructed language I started on, say, two years ago, and recently found renewed interest in. Sauveterrané (prounounced the French way, SOVE-ter-ra-NEH). If there's anything I need to give a piece a mystical sort of feel without resorting to an already known language, this does the trick for me. If you're even more curious and you want to know the actual lyrics, I've posted a link.

Also, the inspiration came from my boyfriend (IrishChieftain), who often bores me with talking about physics -- and was the first to mention to me that the sound of creation could be heard by listening to static.

Your voice is amazing, this is the sort of voice I want to sample and throw into my own music. Extremely talented, loved the long description, been going through an incredibly rough creative patch at the moment whilst trying to get my album project finished. This must have looped 3 times before I turned it off, completely chilled me out. Very impressed, what a great piece of art.

How cool! This is a very well done and interesting piece of art. I could listen to this for days, while sitting back and taking deep breaths. I love the story behind the creation of this, very inspiring!

ah, the ambience is stunning, could just lay around with this playing in an infinite loop, relaxing.
beautiful work, when you create music what programs do you work with?

Thanks -- I tend to use FL for the music, but I have only a little past basic VSTs -- in this one, I used a lot of synth samples and played around with them. For voice recordings, I tend to open the instrumental file on Audacity, and sing over it -- once, twice...

Glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for listening!

Beautiful and very relaxing!

Troisnyx responds:

Eh, thanks ^_^

man the amount of thought in this is unreal. brilliant work and a beautiful atmosphere. Respect!

Troisnyx responds:

Thank you, kind sir!
