Demonic Sweaters - Atlantis Falls





Here's a brand new song of mine that I made in Ableton Live Intro and Vocoloid with Cyber Diva and Hasuni Miku. The drums and bass were heavily influenced by the song "Key" by Yellow Magic Orchestra. The lyrics were inspired by the comic book, The Atlantis Chronicles by Peter David and Esteban Maroto published by DC Comics 1990.



The basic concept was simple, make a YMO inspired track with Vocaloid singing. The Atlantis concept came afterwards. I'm always obsessed with the legend of Atlantis anyway, and I recently read The Atlantis Chronicles (highly recommended). So when I was trying to think of things to write lyrics about, that's what I came up with.



For the video I used about 15 or 20 stills I took at various oceans, aquariums, beaches, and watery places I've been to over the years, and a couple of my drawings, then used footage from the PC game Atlantis: The Lost Tales - 1997, played by youtuber PeteRoy. I first took all the stills and animated the TV simulator plugin in Sony Movie Studo Platinum, then chroma-keyed the footage from Atlantis:The Lost Tales, over it in what I thought was interesting ways.



The music was composed and mixed entirely in Ableton using Ableton's synths, samples, and plugins, then I mixed the vocals right in the Vocaloid editor. I mastered it in Audacity.



I hope you enjoy it, if you want to download the track, you can here https://demonicsweaters.bandcamp.com/track/atlantis-falls





Lyrics:



A dome above the sky

A million reasons why

We'll take another way to the ocean



And if you want me to

Go to the cave with you

I've got a magic spell for the ocean



Atlantis falls into the depths of the sea now



Our science is so strong

Become amphibian

We can breath underwater like the fishes



The best scientists

And the strongest wariors

Atlantis is the home of technology



Atlantis falls into the depths of the sea now



Atlantis falls into the depths of the sea now



A dome above the sky

A million reasons why

We'll take another way to the ocean



And if you want me to

Go to the cave with you

I've got a magic spell for the ocean



Atlantis falls into the depths of the sea now



Atlantis falls into the depths of the sea now



Atlantis falls into the depths of the sea now



Atlantis falls into the depths of the sea now
