Modern World Track number: 10 Year: 2000 Album: rough diamonds Genre: Electronic
How jets and bombs pollute and spread fear in our world. The sounds were written using Fibonacci principles, and the golden number 7.8 at which the ionosphere vibrates. Therefore, a guitar sound might be: bass-7.8x10=78-would be the level setting. The sideswipes from the jets were taken @ RAF Valley, Anglesy, in the public viewing area. To get the juicy Vulcan bomber taking off at full throttle, at the end of the track, my friend and I had to sneak on to the base, with three dogs, and just wait with a digital four-track. Nothing like shoving a mic up a Vulcans arse. Cracking sound; we were in just the right place to capture max thrust-a rocky outcrop on the edge of the base. A noise straight from hell. The drums were me banging on the table with the four-track set to 'onboard mic' I just thought Celtic peoples rising up, and being people of the land, not being bullied by political thugs. taking back their Birthright. proud. Indomitable. The sounds at the very end are me blowing across the top of the onboard mic-to hopefully simulate nuclear bombs going off in the distance. If we don't stand up and speak truth, these idiots might well push us to it. Don't be afraid to crank up the volume and use your imagination, maybe with your eyes closed.
