Part three of the serial instrumental, Creature Of Habit.

When running or jogging at a steady pace, breathing also picks up a cadence. I've always wanted to try that as the basis for a rhythm (it's been done, but I still wanted to try it*). Our protagonist, having been Seduced by and suffering a tic-like Attachment to [fill in the blank] is now unwittingly running inside a metaphorical hamster wheel, so I can't imagine a more fitting time to try out this idea. Breathing loop courtesy freesound.org and other strange sounds are from the curious Swamp XT virtual synth by HG Fortune.

* Some other examples of bodily noises turned to musical purposes from recent MeFi music posts:


Stay tuned for the next installment...

The breathing loop caught me off guard - very original, albeit a bit creepy! Lent itself well to the dark/industrial-sounding chords/synthscape. Overall: another great post!
