Elephant cemetery

from FAWM 2022 by The Fishermen & the Priestess

backstage exclusive


This is my entry for Andy's "Avatar Challenge" (fawm.org/forums/topic/12042/).

My avatar is a microphone. But not any microphone — it's an AKG C414 XLII. I wanted to use the AKG C414 for my avatar challenge, but I don't have one and turns out they're quite expensive!

I scoured the internet and found some samples of an acoustic guitar recorded with the AKG C414. I couldn't use them because of copyright, but... when those samples are reversed, stretched, and EQ'd they become unrecognizable!

So here it is. The initial pads in this song were recorded with the AKG C414 XLII. I added guitars, drums, bass, and a SAMPLED ELEPHANT.
