This is a 2020 remix of my electronic ambient/hard trance medley from 1999: “The Fall / The River” that originally appeared in the album “Psychic*: Belief” (2000). This new rendition has a 1980s/1990s nostalgia style mixed with a modern sound and feel, suitable for the retro and epic movie-like feel of the game. I’ve always loved classical music and you can probably hear the influence and the way it combines in my electronic, ambient and trance songs too.
The song image cover depicts a flying alien plant from outer space. I see the eerie voice at the beginning (first heard at 0:11) and through the song as the sounds of a robotic eagle flying through an underworld metal and concrete labyrinth, trying to find its way back to the surface. Finally, the Sun starts to reflect from it’s metallic feathers…
As of 2020, I’m working on many projects, my own music, retro computer games (f.ex. a fantasy platform adventure!) and a rare book about my grandmother’s childhood in the 1930s Caribbean as an utopian settler. More about these later. Feel free to contact and mail!
*Psychic of Synchronic was my music artist name in the 1990s and early 2000s.
For celebrating the soon starting Formula 1 season 2017, here is a sneak preview teaser from my upcoming trance / 80s & 90s style remix of Kris Hatlelid‘s awesome music soundtrack from the 1987 computer game classic Grand Prix Circuit by Accolade.
The final piece will have f.ex. 1980s style lyrics :). Stay tuned!
The title and the theme of this song derives and was inspired from the penguin short story in the Disney film The Three Caballeros (1944). I saw it first time on a VHS in the 1980s and got it as a gift one memorable Christmas. The animated short tells the story of a penguin living in the South Pole. He doesn’t appreciate the cold conditions at all and dreams of sun, warmth and palm trees. I totally relate to that :).
Also, the title refers to the cyber punk science fiction novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? (1968) by Philip K. Dick, which the movie Blade Runner (1982) was based on.
Hope you enjoy this trance of the past! More to come, stay tuned.
