about

"Utopian Dreams" is the first of a two-part story about the human quest for a better life through technological advancement. This soundtrack echoes the enthusiastic naivety of mankind in the early stages of an electronic age. As portrayed in many science fiction artificial intelligence stories, unfortunate outcomes prevail as the machines get smarter. The story is told via analog synth modules, effects pedals, a drum machine, and shortwave radio equipment. The gritty yet regimented mechanics of electronic sound portrays humanity's desire for order and power, ultimately leading to feelings of loneliness and despair. See if you can find any glimmer of hope buried into the cold and desolate soundscapes spoken by machines that echo the dreams of a human past.
