Descending Into A Dream

by Mortiis

COTBW exclusive


Another COTBW exclusive:

As promised during the last video chat...

This is a work in progress. This is part of my contribution to a compilation album, based on the works of H.P. Lovecraft. Released by Black Widow Records. I am basing my music on the story "Dream Quest Of Unknown Kadath".

Note: The "album art" is just a placeholder, it is NOT official artwork in any form, nor do I own any rights to it.

If you have an interest in music/studio gear...The gear and software I used, that I can think of right now (probably a lot more) was: Kurzweil K2500, Korg MS-20, Korg MS-20 filter (plugin), Ensoniq DP2 (pitch shifter, for the myriad of sampled loops and hits and impacts), Oberheim SEM (software), ARP Odyssey (software), Roland 808 (sample), samples of Crumar String Machine, samples of ARP2600, etc.


released February 18, 2022
All music written and recorded by Mortiis / Havard Ellefsen.

Planned recordings in Transylvania 1993.
That did not happen.
Released several solo albums in the 90´ies & weirding out the music industry with his prosthetic mask.
Oh those yonder days of media hypocrisy.
Became band. Band died.
Broke ribs, dreams and industry shackles, but remained free.
