Angel Invaders (2015)
If you enjoyed this track (or not), please consider donating to the LGBT Foundation. I first became aware of this foundation because they are fighting laws which criminalize relationships. In the UK, it is legal to lie about one’s marital status, age, religion or whether one has had an STI test, yet several young trans men have become convicted sex offenders for not volunteering the information that they transitioned. The foundation is working on challenging these laws. (Dear listener: if you want to avoid dating a trans (or cis) person, just ask them ahead of time.)
This badly mangled version of Adeste Fideles uses the sleigh bells and Risset bells I’ve been using throughout the project. It also uses a snare synth and bass drum synth of my own devising, Schemawound’s dirty fm synth and grirgz’s wobble bass synth.
Although I think this is probably the worst piece of music I’ve ever made, my wife said it sounded like an 8 bit video game, so I titled it Angel Invaders. Can you shoot them down before its too late?
This track is part of a larger project, ’12 days of Crimbo’, which will raise funds for homeless and/or LGBT charities.
