Matrix Hit

After the One Silver Bell prototype, Matrix Hit is my first real attempt at trying to design trance music. It stems from a number of influences, including some of the instrumentals from The Matrix (hence the name), an excellent trance piece called Open Your Eyes by Nalin & Kane, and a song by The Cynic Project that I don’t quite remember. However, that being said, this piece has a voice, and a sound, all its own.

There are a number of technological advances in this work over most of my previous pieces. This was written in a newer version of Melody Assistant, and I was able to use the built-in sound filters to enhance the violin sample to its present state. The beat structure is also set up differently, to great effect, and the percussion samples were also upgraded. Put together, Matrix Hit is by far one of the most professional-sounding pieces that I have written.
