The Fiend

The Fiend

This is another piece I wrote for Chimera, Bungie’s expansion for “Myth 2: Soulblighter.” It’s pretty much all VL1 except for the heartbeat sound.

As the VL depends heavily on being “fed” controller messages to make sound, I think just started “drawing” a bunch of controllers into the sequencer. Once I started getting something that sounded “good”, I’d add another stream and see how that sounded. Eventually all the streams gave me this.

At no time did I cross the streams!
