God of Sleep

In Sonic Arts, I was asked to create a looping 4-channel piece to be tested in the EDP Hypercube (performance space). We were asked to create our tracks based on an alternate persona, so I chose Hypnos, the Greek god of sleep. I tried to embody a sense of sleepy ambience, without relying on abstract ambient noise as I enjoy making my pieces musical. I recorded myself in the bathroom shower playing the guitar riff as well as ringing a Tibetan cymbal. The long synths were created in audiotool.com and the shorter more prominent synths were created in Reaktor. The challenge was to combine musical elements that could randomly overlap each other and still feel in place while the loop progressed. I stopped this track at 4 minutes, but feasibly it could be played for a day without any track overlapping the other.
