Night Talk
Have you heard of Synthwave? It’s pretty crazy. My first exposure to it was through the FarCry mod Blood Dragon, a retro futuristic first person shooter where you take down laser wielding dragons with an assortment of insane weaponry and ridiculous phrases such as “I'm no hero Doc; I'm just your regular US Army Mark 4 Cyber Commando.” Slaying laser dragons is prety fun, but the sound track to this game was even more killer than our protagonist. I found that the synthwave music genre had a pretty impressive roster and, in my sonic adventure, found the artist Phaserland. My mission was to interpret and visualise the atmosphere and environment that synthwave artist Phaserland's 'Night Talk' conveys to me through the lyrics and 80's samples.
