#APT006 – Nick Modern – Resolution

‘I adapt to any situation.
I survive infliction.
I operate within my own division.
I conquer myself.
My vision is resolute.’

Resolution forms APT006, as Nick Modern attacks the structure with heavy stepping beats and ultra-focused low end frequencies. Heavily distorted vocals announce their intent as distant computer processes scream and decay in the background.

‘Dissonance, resolution, and suspense can be used to create musical interest. Where a melody or chordal pattern is expected to resolve to a certain note or chord, a different but similarly suitable note can be resolved to instead, creating an interesting and unexpected sound. For example, the deceptive cadence.’



We are proud to present the next in our series of soft synth patches and presets. Utilizing Native Instrument’s ‘Massive’, Nick Modern has put together a collection of over 250 carefully synthesised sounds, ranging from lush pads, deep sub bass, glitched out midranges and more. All of the synth’s effects and macro functions have been utilized to full effect, bringing a third dimension to intense sound design found within.

Elite Dangerous

We embarked on our journey to the stars with a question first framed in the childhood of our species and in each generation asked anew with undiminished wonder: What are the stars? Exploration is in our nature. We began as wanderers, and we are wanderers still. We have lingered long enough on the shores of the cosmic ocean. We are ready at last to set sail for the stars.

Escape from New York


In the 1980s, the crime rate in the United States had increased 400% above 1979 levels, so, in 1988, following a huge natural disaster, the island of Manhattan was evacuated and turned into a giant maximum-security prison in which all inmates serve a life sentence, as prisoners sent inside are never released, they can opt for an assisted suicide prior to imprisonment in order to be spared from the inevitable lawlessness and violence. A 50-foot (15 m) containment wall surrounds the island and many of Manhattan’s bridges and tunnels have either been dismantled or are covered with mines to prevent anyone escaping from the prison. The surrounding waters are patrolled and no civilians, not even prison guards, are allowed to set foot on the island.
