We brought together a unique array of sounds and instruments for this futuristic title sequence.

Pause Fest Music
Conducting a male choir.

The Pause Fest 2012 Opening Titles were a fantastic and exciting opportunity for us. We created bespoke sound design, as with all projects, but we also wanted to add something extra special to the musical composition. To achieve this we decided to use a range of musicians and techniques.

We were thrilled with the ethereal qualities of singer Jospehine Lloyd's voice and used time-stretch algorithms from Paul Stretch to form a rich bed of female tones. To add some cinematic power, we recorded a male choir made from a local group called Sing Out Bristol.

Pause Fest Synth
Jupiter 6 routed to an Ensonig-DP4.

Liam Kirby, an exceptional guitarist suggested using a Greek bouzouki which gave an organic yet other worldly sound and fitted perfectly with the futuristic themes. As always, we couldn't resist using some analog synths - including arps, stabs and pulses from an Octave Cat and Moog Little Phatty. Plus the Roland Jupiter 6 triggered a vocoder on the Ensoniq-DP4 creating a unique futuristic voice.

 

The Results

Here's some snippets from recordings created for this composition.
