Richard DeHove

Gloomy, anguished track featuring the 01/IV doing drums and the repeating bass squelch, me bashing metal together (then later pitched down), sampled unhappy crowd noises, and the Sub37 doing all the rest. Wasn't sure about the genre. 'Dark Ambient' was what I settled on although perhaps it has too much thump and clunk for anything claiming to be ambient? Maybe Electro-Industrial, Electronica, Dark Wave or even synth wave? All genre advice appreciated.

The track was written at DubDub studios and mastered by Scott Craggs at Old Colony Mastering.

If the metal clunk sounds appeal then you can download 16 free samples, most of which were used in this track:

This track uses vocal samples. In case you have trouble making out the words, here they are (all taken from members' diaries from the 1912 expedition):

"Captain Scott is now laying in this tent with a frozen foot. I'm afraid he'll never walk again. If the wind drops, Birdy and I are going to try to reach the next depot and return.

"We have come together 1,800 miles and are now only eleven miles from stores in plenty.

"God knows I'm sorry to be the cause of such sorrow to anyone in the world, but everyone must die.

"Among ourselves we are unendingly cheerful, but what each man feels in his heart I can only guess.

"I'm just going outside. I may be away some time.

"Had we lived I should have had a tale to tell of the hardihood, endurance and courage of my companions which would stirred the heart of every Englishman.

"Seems a pity, but I don't think I can write more. These rough notes and our dead bodies must tell the tale.

"All is for the best to those who love God.
"All is well, all is well."

The track was written using Akai sampled cello and bass; the classic Symphony of Voices set and several ensembles from Reaktor by Native Instruments.

This is the original mix from my first album. On the CD the vocal track was omitted and the track titled "Worlds Beyond Number", but here is the original full version as it was intended. All is explained on my Patreon page (as well as a 320K MP3 download). This track is not available anywhere else commercially.

A dark ambient / space music track. The track features mainly in-the-box production with the Pro-One, Pro-5 and ArcSyn VSTi synths. Sampled words include (in order): "Your planet is about to be attacked. Some of their secret agents have infiltrated your most restricted areas; your governments, your scientific laboratories. You and the others have no choice but to submit. Your mind is becoming quite blank. You feel that don't you?"

The first exo-planet was confirmed in 1995. As of November 2019 there were 4,044 confirmed exo-planets and another 4,026 candidates in 3,003 solar systems. NASA estimates that there are at least 1000-billion planets in our galaxy and that small rocky worlds are extremely common. This song is dedicated to the planet-hunters.
