SIMULACRES ET SIMULATION

I started this one  quite a while ago when there was a thread about the organ on an old Who song and also a thread about creating the tape stop effect in Caustic using the PCM synth. That was the inspiration for the first part. On reddit there was a thread about proper chord voicing for 'classical' music so that is where the middle section came from. Although I broke a couple of the rules as I went along to make it closer to what I wanted to hear. As I understand it the book Simulacra and Simulation was one of many inspirations for the Matrix movie.

 music Created in Caustic sort of follows this since it is created in a 'virtual world' on 'Virtual Instruments', a simulacra of a live musical performance.

Or maybe it is just a cool title for another one of my little sound experiments.

Excellent!  Yeah I remember

Excellent!  Yeah I remember that thread about the Who, you have a great simulation of it here, this is a fantastic track, really up my street, love the different parts that all mesh together nicely, great automations going on. I have had a little look at you links, it's all pretty fascinating stuff, although I realized I might need another coffee..lol..or I might pass it to my nephew who is about to start his Masters in Philosophy and the Classics, hehe

This is great Wardini, sounds

This is great Wardini, sounds like about three or four genres effortlessly colliding into something very unique & distinct.  Also, loving that classical breakdown in the middle.  This is very sophisticated stuff indeed, great work!
