Such a distinctive sound. Would love to see his gear list.


on this people were talking about it on reddit and he responded:

several layers of a custom oberheim matrix 6 patch run through 1/4" tape and a thermionic culture vulture a few times. the entire track is also slowed down from its native speed/tuning within logic 9.
*also thanks for the mention, i lurk here sometimes and it’s a trip to see my track show up!

**here’s the sound reimagined with a DSI OB-6.

on his use of tape:

i use and abuse it in a variety of ways – saturating the inputs, leaving them clean, re-recording at slower and slower speeds – and the kind of tape used really contributes to the sound. but i’m not so much interested in the sonic imprint as i am obsessed with the idea that the sound is there, physically trapped in time, ready to be explored, pulled apart like taffy or simply left there maybe to be discovered by a stranger after i’m long gone.


lmao i used to play css with this dude when I was in like 9th grade, I think his steam name was slowmosexual


hes pretty chatty and doesn’t seem to act the big bollocks despite his talent and success.

His sound design is great.



I’m fucking stoked this thread came back to life.

Man really needs to do an Against The Clock.


love lorns music… and appreciate the art he has created… but a few months ago… a kid tweeted at him about some video he made with his music in it… and lorns response was something like… [I didn’t give you permission, take it down…]

Seeing that kinda put me off from his music… shit i’m not at a level lorn is… but if someone wants to use my music for a project and sends it to me… id be fucking stoked… eh


its his work, he, rightfully, should have control over what it gets used in conjunction with…


So cool.




Belongs in a movie. So good.

Rest of the album is pretty impressive too - amazing sound design and he’s getting more experimental.
