About: P’lonium Lifetrip

Introduction:

P’lonium Lifetrip is the music of Jeremy J Walters. British borne, I now live in Auckland New Zealand. Writing music has been my passion for over 25 years. Armed with a good sequencer and synths I have always enjoyed tapping away and creating new sounds.

 

Projects: 1- Snapshots 2014

Coca-Cola viral Ad competition.

“This short piece for the Snapshots project was a backing track to a cola competition entry. The movie depicted a lonely girl getting to work on valentine’s day who has a coke; and suddenly everything changes…”

 

 

In 2014 I entered a competition to create music for a small film collective who had entered a Viral Ad Competition.   Taking the first edit of the short, I overlaid the music that I had composed. I then compressed and edited the soundtrack to fit better with the movie.

The movie producer and editor then re-cut the short to sit with the music. Following this I collaborated on sound effects and Foley. I created a channel surfing sound, some and some additional door opening, computer keyboard and person winking Foley noises.  These were partially taken from royalty free samples, partially created on the internal synth on the Cakewalk Sonar, that I was using at the time. These were overlaid into the soundtrack and the short went into final editing.

I then created a 20 second piece for the credits, a theme and variation of the piece in the short.  The credits music was more corporate and was styled around a cinema advertising channel theme from the 2000’s.

 

Projects: 2- DR WHO 2011

Dr Who, Fan Art Radio Series.

“Dr Who and his new assistant are trapped on a planet…”

Excerpt 1: Dr Who is trapped in a tunnel, but escapes through a vent into an underground city.

Excerpt 2: Dr Who meets with a team of scientist in the quiet corner of a busy pub, this piece is playing in the back ground.

Excerpt 3: The scientist make their way along a narrow jungle track on the surface.

Excerpt 4: The team meet back at the pub after the mission.

 

Discography: 

In 1989, I created Earth Movements, and in 1991 The Books of Life, two collections of ambient pieces heavily influenced by Vangelis and Jean-Michel Jarre.  Unfortunately, the cassette recordings of these pieces are too corrupted to publish.

After a seven year hiatus between 1998 and 2002, I created a collection of  pieces for string quartet. Some of this work is available on: soundcloud.

2002- today:  I have been steadily writing away creating new pieces. Most of which are also available on: soundcloud. Over the last two years I have been able to devote much more time and energy to my music.

 

Software:

Currently, I am using Steinbergs’ Cubase LE AI Elements 9.  A fantastic piece of home studio software that comes with superb Synths.  I started out on Steinberg Pro12, a on an Attari in 1998, but switched to Cakewalk Sonar Home Studio in the 2000s, it was a great low cost and flexible home studio software.  However, with new upgrades making older compositions obsolete, I turned back to Steinberg in 2014.
