Advent 5: TV Thriller Theme

Another track utilising Arturia’s CS-80 V3. This started sounding like some kind of TV Thriller theme music when I started it today and it’s turned out quite haunting. I imagine some kind of detective series or someone investigating the paranormal.  Advent 5: TV Thriller Theme – Patrik Gryst


#Advent 3: Vintervann

My third #ADVENTtrack explores the theme of winter.  There are only two notes in this composition, expressing the starkness of Winter.

I’ve always been fascinated by the tides of the season, in particular Winter and how December flows toward the Winter Solstice. Vintervann is the Norwegian word for Winter Tide and I think best describes the bleak beauty of Winter, especially in the northern hemisphere.

#ADVENTtrack Project

Advent is a season observed by many and has obvious connotations with the coming of the Nativity; for many though, religious or non-religious, it is simply a countdown to Christmas and the Festive Season.

I always find Winter and especially Christmas a reflective and creative time, especially in the period between Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.

Today on December 2nd, which is the official start of the Advent season, I came up with idea of composing a track every day, based on the theme of Advent or Winter, and posting it online; and then it occurred to me I could invite other musical artists from across the internet to post their own tracks as a way of connecting to others and sharing and celebrating creativity.

So if you want to get involved, all you need to do is create your own #ADVENTtrack, upload it to SoundCloud or similar with the tag #ADVENTtrack, describing the theme or motif of your track.  It can be any genre of music and should have some connection to this time of year. Once you have posted your track, you could nominate another musical artist to compose and post their track.

I’ll be posting a track every day until the end of the month. This is today’s track, Advent1: Glacier on Soundcloud: Advent 1: Glacier – Patrik Gryst
