Note: When downloading the full album, the download includes a 26-page PDF Booklet where you can read the story behind each track and how MetaSynth was used in the sound design! I have also included as a bonus item the full-scale hi-res image of the album cover. Zoom in and discover...

"Meta Landscapes" is an ambient album with experimental electronic compositions based on sounds and effects created with MetaSynth and mixed in ProTools or Ableton Live. I have been a user of Eric Wenger's MetaSynth since April 1998. Since then, MetaSynth has been one of my main tools when experimenting with sound and music, and I am happy to finally release a collection of my core MetaSynth work!

The fourteen tracks on "Meta Landscapes" are either brand new compositions made this spring (2021), re-creations, or finished works based on sounds and ideas I have developed since 1998. The digital album has a total playing time of 1 hour and 44 minutes, and most of the compositions have not been released before. It is available on all streaming platforms on the web, and you may download the album in 24-bit resolution here at Bandcamp. You will then get a PDF booklet where I tell the story behind each composition. I am also sharing one or two creative ideas I used for each of the tracks when I explored MetaSynth's many tools. This is not a tutorial for MetaSynth, and for that, you should visit www.uisoftware.com. They offer a free demo version of MetaSynth if you want to try this Macintosh software.

The audio content of some of the tracks on this album may also be studied in detail by watching my animations on www.youtube.com/user/homelessballoon
