I was listening to VNV Nation's Empires for the millionth time yesterday and decided that I wanted to go for the strings + electronic beats motif.
I haven't let myself do a whole lot of electronic instrumentals this year as I was trying to focus on getting more synthpop music with vocals out the door, so I wanted to give this a shot. FAWM's almost over, after all.
I may have overdone it with the synth arp at the end there but I like how it sounds panning back and forth. 😀 The effect is fun on headphones.
