    "The composers of the hit Netflix show Stranger Things, Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein, break down the music of the show. Kyle and Michael talk about how they were approached by the Duffer Brothers to score the show, the biggest influences on their music, and the differences between the music of Stranger Things season one and season two."

    Thanks Michael! One of the things I liked the most about Stranger Things was that kinda Moog synth sound I loved from the 80's. Tom Baker's , my all time
    favorite Doctor Who, Doctor Who intro music from the late 70's was my favorite.

    S U R V I V E Explores Four Vintage Synths | Reverb Soundcheck

    The throwback music of hit Netflix series "Stranger Things" was the brainchild of Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein of S U R V I V E. To create brooding atmosphere, the two used a selection of vintage and modern synthesizers and drum machines to craft John Carpenter-esque synth soundscapes. In this video, S U R V I V E explores four vintage synths at Reverb's Justin Delay's studio: the Sequential Circuits Prophet-5, the Roland Juno-6, the Korg Mono/Poly and the Roland TR-707 drum machine.

    Great post. I really like these guys approach. I think "modular", be it from picture or audio side, is something I'm attracted to in how it works for my brain. I also think in "nodes", so nuke/davinci/fusion/5u/euro/vcv it's all the same thing (i.e. what a person can learn in davinci can be directly applied to 5u). I also think this helps me in dealing with technical transitions. I learned on analog computers and information theory, and even things like wavelets are pretty much a subset of the old granular computing audio back then. I sometimes seriously joke that I haven't had to learn anything new in the last 40 years, it's just that the price of things drops drastically every year which creates a network effect. I also think that people that don't get "modular" are at a serious disadvantage as technology advances, since they have "relearn" everything was the tech transitions even young people start freaking out on technology revolutions.

    Good stuff. Reverb has a nice range of quality vids on a range of topics. If you love to understand some of your fav songs, and hear from the Anthony Bourdain of music, check Rick Beato on YT. "What Makes this Song Great"
