“The Sound Of” series continues after a while away. Let me know which songs I should put on the list for next time ๐Ÿ™‚

In this video I deconstruct 2 songs from Talos, an Irish musician who has been making waves in the ambient electronic music scene in the last few years. I show the guitar processing, chords, melodies and sound design including the drum programming and mixing.

For clarification – This is my rendition of the song and not the original, I did not create or mix the original song in any way but I did isolate the vocal stem from the original after purchasing the songs to play along with my backing track. Hopefully this is okay and everyone understands this is for education purposes ๐Ÿ™‚

The ads on this video are going to Talos via WMG.
I make no money from this and I am more than happy with that because I get to share some cool samples and sounds with you ๐Ÿ™‚
