Information Overlay (When Winter Calls ONS – Track V)

Today brings another track release for the original novel soundtrack attached to my debut novel When Winter Calls.

I have recently started working ‘outside the box’ and using more hardware, taking the first tentative steps into the world of modular synthesizers and enjoying the unique sounds that can be built when you start playing around with control voltages and proper analog gear.  ‘Information Overlay’ is an ambient track that tries to capture the digital information layer that surrounds human interaction and experience, a return to the world of soundscapes and evolving textures.

“They are the interface, Jared. There’s no distinction between the person and the technology. There never has been in all of human history. We are the technology and it is us…a fact that working in plant labs teaches you. There’s no distinction between natural and unnatural, it’s all there together. We might think we see the boundaries in place – but they’re not really there.”

I hope that you enjoy this, somewhat different, approach to futurist thinking and the exploration of technology that has emerged from us in order to eventually symbiotically return back into its source …
