My contribution to the ‘Stop Rokkasho’ project. Quoting the website:
This site is an appeal concerning the dangers of Japan’s Rokkasho reprocessing plant, which is scheduled to begin full-scale operations next year. Until now Japan has commissioned reprocessing plants in France and the UK to reprocess its spent nuclear fuel.
Japan shipped its spent fuel to Europe and the waste was shipped back to Japan, endangering many other countries in the process. The sea and the land of Ireland, Britain, France and surrounding parts of Europe were contaminated with radioactivity from japanese spent fuel. A large quantity of plutonium and radioactive waste from Japan’s nuclear power plants still remains in France and the UK.
This site says no to reprocessing, not just at Rokkasho, but also in France and the UK and the whole world.
About the remix creation process: Vocals are random chopped with a granulizer plugin. I played a few extra patterns in with some electric piano sound (CS1x) and sunk them in to the reverb to get more atmospherics and to support the melody because of the filtering effects applied to the original. These CS1x sounds include the basic chords (best heard during the breakdown around 3:45) and some easy solos recorded on the first take. The bassline is a lowpassed beat loop beefed up with a few sine bass sounds here and there.
There are a few bits of bus/track automation applied, controlling the amount of signal running to different places: The original song is divided into two bands with eq and the one containing more higher freqs is routed into the global reverb bus. This same track is also run through a resonant filter so that the resonation matches the tune of the actual notes played. This creates long ringing notes, sort of extending the notes through the reverb.
