You Don't Know the Power of the Dark Side - Mallaz
Mallaz recently began learning music production. You Don’t Know the Power of the Dark Side was his very first attempt at producing his own work, created using Ableton Live and making use of audio samples from the Star Wars movies. A one minute long clip of You Don’t Know the Power of the Dark Side was uploaded to TVMallaz, the Mallaz YouTube channel, as both a demonstration of what Mallaz had learnt and in a bit to get feedback and suggestions to aid his development. The clip is accompanied by video that Mallaz also created using various still images. The Ableton Live set for You Don’t Know the Power of the Dark Side have been lost so the track will not be developed, as originally planned, but Mallaz continues to experiment with producing his own music.
*more information relating to this track is available in the Mallaz on Music article, You Don’t Know the Power of the Dark Side, written by Mallaz*
*until the redevelopment of the Mallaz.co.uk website following Mallaz presents... BIG UNIT live at Think Tank? Newcastle on Saturday 7th September 2013 Mallaz is unavailable for commissioned work for examples of his work see some of the images on the Horrorshow Artwork Facebook page. Horrorshow Artwork prints will be available from mid-October*
