The intro music from the Thing (by the master Ennio Morricone) done with the 4-Pole Mission Shruthi-1. Everything in the music was made with the shruthi-1 (with the 4-Pole Mission Filterboard) except the hihats.
About the 4-Pole Mission filter board: This filter board is probably the most advanced 4-pole core for the Shruthi-system! It uses the same “Pole-mixing” technique introduced in the Oberheim Xpander to provide a cornucopia of filter responses. It also provides 4 different settings controlling the “flavour” of the resonance, clean and liquid, MS-20 style, wobbly/chaotic, and a combination of the MS20 and wobbly modes.
Kyrene prints a new programme twice a year and usually asks artists and illustrators to contribute their personal interpretation of their “totem animal”, a cow.
Along with the illustration for the programme I also created a promotional postcard for them.
My interpretation of the cow was clearly inspired by old movies where giant monsters destroy cities with their super-powers, like Godzilla.
War: The Human Cost is a comic anthology and CD recently released by UK indie pubblisher Paper Tiger Comix. The Book has been in production for several years now, facing different challenges such as fundraising. I’m really glad they now made it into the public!
The book contains one of my really old stories, titled The Hunter, a story I made when the second Irak war broke out.
