- What is this project about?
This is a music album that can be used as a companion for tabletop games, studying and reading Lovecraftian tomes. You can use it for your horror themed Role Playing Games, LARPs or whilst reading horror stories on a long night. This music is defined as dark drone, a sub-genre of dark ambient.
- What does “companion” mean in this project?
Many of the dark ambient tracks that can be found on the internet are no good for reading or for use on tabletop games. This is because they should stay in the background for a main activity like reading. Most of the tracks steal too much of your attention by playing many sounds or quickly changing from one type of sound to another. If you have a soft and calm soundscape and then suddenly a harsh and distorted sound appears, your brain will focus on that sound. The immersion into your Game Master’s story will then vanish. What you need is an ambience full of long lasting bass sounds that builds up the atmosphere, but does not distract.
- What is the character of this album?
All works will be minimalistic, but not poor. They must have an interesting texture, a very dark character and will slowly evolve from one drone to another.
- What it contains?
This album contains 10 tracks in digital format.
- A short example of my work:
Night at Hotel is a cinematic dark ambient track inspired by H.P. Lovecraft's "The Shadow over Innsmouth"
Risks and challenges
This is a project that involves creative work, so it may be delayed due to lack of creative power, however it is more likely the project will be finished BEFORE estimated date (Feb 2019).
Estimated date was picked with careful analysis of the workflow of previous productions.
This process includes field sample recording, lucid dreaming unspeackable nightmares, working on raw samples, composition and mastering process.
Backers will receive their items after funds will be released to project designer.
There is also a chance - approx 10^(10)^(100) AKA 10^googol - that the world we know will stop existing due to Void portal being open during listening to this album.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
