Hello to you all :)

I hope you're having a fantastic day despite all the bad news around the world.

To cheer you up, I have this recent post I made on YouTube, talking about a man who lost his Loved One on his wedding day, went to the underworld to bring her back and then lost her for eternity just because he couldn't get his eyes off of her.

Here is Orpheus :

Please, don't hesitate to share your thoughts about it ; I've been working on it for a while and think it's OK but I still feel it could be (really) better.

Thanks for reading, have a great day, stay safe and look at your love one(s) ; they're beyond beautiful and so do you (I feel so emotional right now ;)



  • Hello Sebastien!

    Amazing work as usual! I'm really enjoying this series of Ancient Gods!

    The vocals there really do give this chilling vibe. What plugin is it? Did you give it any effects?

    I also really liked the percussion in this piece. I think that there should be a bit more buildup into that 2:11 part, maybe using some bass? I am not sure, since your dynamics are at a forte, that might've been hard.

    I also liked the low synth around 4:08, it's amazing and it contemplates the mix very well!

    Well done!

  • Thank you so much for your message !

    Good idea on the buildup ; I've been working with more and more layers since I began this series, which adds depth and power but leads to other issues for the mix. And I must admit it leads to a louder place where sometimes I could use more structure and transitions.

    The choirs and vocals I used are :

    ETHERA Gold Sahara Voices by Zero-G samples, Eternal Vocals by Orchestral Tools, and my favourite (by far) : Rhodope II by Strezov Sampling. The male vocals come from ETHERA Gold 2.5 (Daniele's voice).

    I also used Heavyocity Vocalise 2, incredible library, and Babel by Orchestral Tools, which is quite cool.

    This piece initially comes from a track I made for a competition. I already had the main motif and tried to work on it for an Absynth 5 competition. Here is the track if you're interested :

    Have a great day and thanks again for the nice feedback ;)
