I thought I’d make this a weekend thing of just SoundCloud finds I enjoy.
1.) Ludovico Einaudo – “Life”:
I originally found this off of Spotify which I stopped using a while ago but I happened to find it on SoundCloud which is great. I like how story telling this composition is if you try to imagine. This is just a preview though, if you find the original song you’ll see what I mean.
2.) P. SUS – “Talk To Me”:
This track is one of those you can relax to while surfing the web and bobbing your head up and down.
3.) P. SUS & Pogo Collaboration – “Journey002”:
I found P. SUS from Pogo and I love them both so to hear both of them together is a treat. I haven’t played the game but what I can tell from watching gameplay footage is that they’re sampling a a couple music cues which there are very few of in the game and lot of the foley sounds running in the sand, turning them into percussive stuff beautifully. There’s an interesting article on Gamasutra talking about how these sounds were created for the game, it’s worth reading.
4.) Pogo feat John Sean – “Mi Angel”:
I first heard this song on the video Pogo posted on his channel a couple days ago and ever I since I can’t stop listening to it. According to the description in the clip, a friend had shown Nick Berke (Pogo) a clip of this kid from Manila, Philippines singing this song for his girlfriend (Angel) and I guess inspiration hit and when Nick flew over to Manila again for a visit he helped produce this track for him. Just yesterday Nick had posted a video showing the making of the track.
5.) EZ Listening – “Up2U”:
I found this thanks to the repost on P. SUS’ Soundcloud page. I love this style of music, it’s so catchy and I can’t stop listening to it each day.
6.) The Conjuring inspired Sound Design by Me:
I watched The Conjuring on Tuesday, it was pretty good. I’m fan of Director James Wan’s 2010 horror “Insidious” and the trailer was pretty appealing to me. I’ll just say it wasn’t great but it wasn’t bad, there were too many jump scares but it was creepy enough to be enjoyable. Anyway I was inspired as I always am after watching a film and I put this together in 3 or 4 hours after I got back from the cinema. The creepy kid is my elder brother, he figured out how to record himself with the tape deck as a kid and would ruin my mom’s cassette tapes by recording himself singing into them. I’m happy to see Tapio Liukkonen of Kaamos Sound like it. If you don’t know he was the sound designer for Amnesia: The Dark Decent.
Anyway I hope there’s something here for you to like, see you next week.
