I don't really know what to say except listen with your eyes closed.
Self-indulgent technical notes, because I haven't seen either of thse techniques used too often:
- I finally figured out pitch shifting vocals (using a Pitch Delay pedal with the feedback set to 0.)
- and I got the ghostly drone (similar to Thousand Yard Stare and Let Me Tell You...) by playing a sample of a bell through the machiniste shifted down 2 octaves and put through a high-resonance LP filter. Note variation achieved by changing the cutoff frequency.
Shout outs to Aaron S., Offbeatninja, and Drummerscott for influencing my style, this song in particular.
Edit ( 2.29 .12) - Changed bass to audible, but less floor-shaking, levels, added bass to middle section, introduced bassline, adjusted sound/resonance of ghostly bell effect, added/tweaked vocals to middle/end, minor changes to drum patterns, probably other small changes but I've forgotten.
