This track is still in WIP/Unfinished form, due to losing the last 3 hours worth before deadline occurred and having to revert to a backup and then repair the piece as best as I could 15 mins before deadline. I WILL be revisiting and expanding upon this track sometime in the next couple of months. For NGADM 2020 Round 1.

Ditched the original track on Friday evening as it wasn't working out, decided in this direction instead after some experimentation with mixing very heavy perc packs together, mainly massive cinematic metals etc.Pushed experimentation further with mutating both my own voice heavily for alien-chanting segments and also a large variety of vocal chops through extremely heavy processing chains to produce sequences to weave between percussion etc.

The intro/ambient section is really something. I would love to write this myself or at least listen to a whole track of just that. It's such a great build up.
By the time the piece abducts us, I can't visualize a better description of an alien horror flick.
This one is very alluring. Would of loved to hear it conclude with another ambient section after all that energy to conclude the piece. Would be a perfect bookend to the madness.

Ayy thanks, yeah I'm planning on revisiting this piece in the next couple/few months to finish it off properly. If only I had an extra 4 hours or so, I would of had the ending segment a tad longer (along with a greater diversity of rhythm and texturing), followed by a proper dark ambient ending to extend the run length out to 4-1/2 minutes.

I am working on a full dark ambient piece at the moment which follows a more 'Underwater/Abyssal Tech' theme and is in a similar kind of style to the intro of this track, current plans are for it to run at least 5-7 minutes. Chances are that I'll release it for Robot Day in less than 2 weeks time since it could tie into it fairly alright haha

Sorry for the late review! Seems we both stayed up the night to work on our projects, given our time zones :'D

I love the atmosphere you build in the beginning. It's very pleasant-sounding, and it builds up perfectly to the very intense second part of the piece. Speaking of which, I do love when it hits! Very cool rhythm, and I always like to hear sounds that are a bit avant-grade; it really makes your style stand out! The power of the percussion is quite something too!

I love the alien voice. I'll look forward to hearing the expanded version at some point. Good luck!

LD-W responds:

Ayy thanks

Certain elements of the piece such as the mutated/artificial vocal-chops which make up the earlier rhythms, plus some of the other vocal effects and chants are the kind of content I'll be making for a Kontakt Library currently in early-development (for eventual sale), so if that's something you're interested in getting your hands on at some point, I don't mind sending you over a free copy to play around with in the future haha

If this doesn't get into Round 2 I'm gonna boycott NGADM

LD-W responds:

I'll probably be busy with doing something for Robot Day if it doesn't haha
