"Uniforms of Snow" started out around 2007 as a tribute to early electronic music, using retro drum machines and analogue synth sounds. It gradually evolved into a full instrumental album inspired by HP Lovecraft's 1931 novel "At the mountains of madness", about a scientific expedition to Antarctica that uncovers the remains of a strange ancient culture. Now what if the novel had been put into movie around 1975, with John Carpenter providing the soundtrack? This is how it could have turned out... an all-instrumental, vintage-sounding album, with plenty of primitive beatboxes and Moog sounds, and musical inspiration ranging from Brian Eno's 70's ambient textures to Kraftwerk's synth-pop grooves.
Gear : lots of Microkorg from the early version, and Moog Little Phatty, Gforce Virtual String Machine added on the final version.
