This is album #1 in a series of alien invasion concept albums containing original cinematic electronica, dark ambient, and experimental tracks. This first album in the series, released in 2009, tells this tale of an alien invasion from the human point of view.
The albums in this series are orchestrated with classic and contemporary synth sounds and loaded with sound design “ear candy” for synth and sci-fi fans looking for a soundtrack experience for an epic movie yet to be filmed. If you listen to the tracks in album order, the story unfolds, and the titles of the songs give away the basic plot of each scene, but it’s left up to you - the listener - to fill in the story details. Each song was written to stand on its own as well. The dynamic arrangements and production will reward you for listening with high-quality headphones, stereo systems, or home theater systems.
This album was recorded entirely in the digital realm using virtual synthesizers and Ableton Live. I worked on the album for an elapsed two years before release. Prior to the release of the album, the first three tracks were released as singles. "Midnight" and "Stealth" went to #1 and "They Walk Among Us" went to #2 on the SoundClick electronica charts.
If you enjoy this album, check out the 2nd album in the series called "I Hear Your Signals" which tells this same story but from the alien point of view with inverted emotional curves.
