Escapism - Original Instrumental Music by Darren Claxton




Hello all! here's an instrumental track of mine titled ESCAPISM which was written quite a few years ago now.
I revisited the track and re-recorded it as I think it's a really moody, mysterious and frankly spooky sounding creation.
All the instruments were played by me which gives it that real organic sound.

Escapism - is my next instrumental track upload for Choon. As you know, I write many songs and play on MSP waves radio quite regularly and also co-host a weekly show 'Spotlight On The Artist' but there are other sides to my musical creativity, and that lies in my instrumental creations. When I began to compose and create music back in the early 00's, I didn't really know that I could sing, so just constructed instrumental moody music. This track developed over a few weeks and just grew and grew.

It was constructed from the bare bones of that hypnotic beat and bass line that you hear. I created the drums and bass riff using real instruments, played in real time to a click track. I also use the built in pads on my vintage ZOOM Porta Studio Recorder and play finger drums this way, which creates that natural flow, which hovers underneath the haunting lead guitar and synth pads.
