Beyond Oort's Cloud // OP-1 ambient/electronic

Hi there, today I’m sharing with you my latest creation, from some ideas born on the OP-1 to a full arrangement polished in Logic Pro.
This tune features space synth atmospheres, weird vocal chops patterns, thundering drum breaks and surprise funky finale.
Hope you like it!

(there’s also a slightly better sounding version on Soundcloud)


Your Komo rebit track/video is one of my all time favourite Op-1 demos.

In fact, on my long, winding journey back to getting an Op-1 (or 2) that demo has played a major role in making that decision.

Thank you.

aww, thank you! I love that one too! Must be the 7/4 time signature, there’s something… unsettling about it. Need to use it more often!

You’re welcome.

The time signature’s definitely part of the appeal.

And with that said, the track reminds me a little bit of Reload/Global Communications. Little bits here & there, the melody perhaps. My fav Reload track is this one, with the odd time signature.

Sorry to derail your thread slightly.

I listened to this song, very nice! There’s this plucky-bell-high pitch kind of sound that is very similar. Btw now I know how to properly call the music genre I want to make: ‘smooth electronic’ haha

Thanks for that.

I have the cd but haven’t heard that remix in over 20 years.

Edit: Off to do some gardening, while listening to this.

Thanks again!


I’ve also been listening a lot to your ‘Not losing to the wind’ track and I’ve been really inspired by it & Komo rebit.

I’m yet to get my (next) Op-1. I’m a previous owner on 4 separate occasions. But some of your tracks & those by @SineRider have changed my musical direction. I’m finally ready to embrace the Op-1 for all it’s quirks, and possibilities. But that’s another, long, winding story and at this point i just wanted to let you know how much i’m enjoying & appreciating your Op-1 tracks.

And here’s the Reload track that makes me think of your melodies.

Thanks a lot for your message and support! It is indeed my feeling too, that the OP-1 enables me to have a more spontaneous and “felt” approach to song-making. The lack of a MIDI editor forces me to actually play the instrument rather than program it and that leads to all kind of creative little accidents that I came to love.
