"What happens when the music stops?
What will be left, after me?"
After Me is the result of investing years of hard work into learning how to produce, years of learning how music works, years of spending money I didn't have into instruments and gear.
When I heard someone say 'well, he can't do much else than ambient' I refused to take it as critique, but rather saw it as a challenge.
That's why I set out to write an entire filmscore, without the film even existing. So in a way, After Me is me showing the world I'm capable of so much more than people give me credit for...
The entire score, barring the bonus song, is built around a single motif which returns in every song. And despite having used strings in previous works, the score features a lot more intense usage of various strings. It was written for them, not with them. They form the basis of the orchestra, the soil on which I built my story.
Cyberpunk ambient-electronica with lots of calming static and whirring percs that instills a sense of anxious anticipation and a sense of resolution. "Forest Lover" is that perfect example, of a non-human future, with only its history carved out by unthinking machines and datanodes of journal entries amidst the woods recovering from the last war.

I originally arrived here for woob and found not only woob and other familiar names and favorites like KS, TD and Johan Troch, but also many greats I didn't know before. Excellent compilation! Really impossible to pick a single favorite track. Gerrit
Powerful, dark and atmospheric IDM at its best. It's got all the eclectic glitch, echoic ambiance, and deep somber pads one could ask for. There's even a nice lining of well placed piano in spots. Excellent from front to back. Huron resides in a similar futuristic sci-fi vein to Access to Arasaka, but with a touch more rhythmic emphasis. So if you're already a fan of ATA, then you absolutely won't go wrong with this. Can't wait to hear what's next for Huron! Fahrenheight Nova
