In this episode I show you how I composed the track ‘Monument’ that was featured in the trailer for the Netflix show, Archive 81.

This track was one of the ten tracks written for Elephant Music’s album, Throat 4.

The focus of this album was to bring throat singing to the fore and let vocals replace the cello that had become so popular.

I sketched out the entire album using only my voice and then slowly replaced those parts with other instruments and we even got a throat singer in to really hammer home that sound.

I really enjoyed writing this album as it felt so fresh and exciting.
