SCI FI SOUNDTRACK: Heavy synth track from Canadian sonic pioneer

Soundtrack from a supposed “lost film” from the 1980s inspired by obscure sci-fi movies and classic dystopian fiction. Created by Sinoia Caves, the ongoing project of Jeremy Schmidt – a disciple of the long-form cosmic synthesizer soundscape, and member of Canadian psych-and-prog pioneers Black Mountain – the soundtrack draws on inspiration from Tangerine Dream, Wendy Carlos and John Carpenter. Schmidt artfully navigates the various sonic sensibilities of his predecessors, incoporating touchstones such as mellotron choirs, glacial analogue synthesizer pads and arpeggiators. The result is ominously beautiful, otherworldly and terrifying.
