A couple of weeks ago I recorded a bunch of tracks to be used in the promotion of a new novel and fan fiction site called The Ark.
Here is the promo video, filmed at the book’s launch.
I recorded my Greco electric guitar through a space echo effects pedal and ran it through a Leslie speaker. The idea was to capture an ambient, subterranean soundscape that would brood and create a post apocalyptic mood.
The book is great. The story involves a community of people who volunteer to work in a seed bank in the heart of Mt Kosciuszko, only to be time locked inside, losing contact with the outside world.
Being a fan of the post apocalyptic genre, I loved working on this project.
