This album is a testament to my love for horror movie soundtracks. I hope for it to serve as an example to those in the industry that fantasy, imagination, and originality can still be a part of the genre. While there have been a small handful of decent horror films made in the last ten years, most of them either play like a reality TV show or try to be too glossy for their own good. Musically, all of them are boring. We live in a time of boundless new musical technology and it is shameful that computers and synthesizers are no longer used to their fullest potential if they are used at all). The music of horror films should not be slick and polished. It must be disjointed, hairy, and vile. One of the main reasons that the movies of the 70s and early 80s ARE more frightening is because their directors had good audio and video aesthetics. They took advantage of the available music technology (i.e. - analog synthesizers).
My foremost intent with VADE is to recapture the spirit of the golden years of horror with the use of modern technology. The initial concept was to create various songs of various moods and themes. I always had a very specific scene in mind for each song. Most often, i would create the song title first, and then try to match the music to my thoughts. None of the songs were meant to interact with eachother. However, once i finished these 20 songs i noticed how they could be organized in such a way as to formulate a conceivable plot structure.
Therefore, VADE became a concept album. The song titles speak for themselves. Read them and listen to the music.. I'll allow your imagination to fill in all the necessary blanks. Regarding the plot, you are in control of the details.
