ARJAN MIRANDA - FIRE & ICE
From the album Spiritual America
This sordid tale of dark bromance leads you through the underworld of fraternity hazing culture. Embracing my love of Kosmische Musik I created a disintegrating and drifting ambient score that plays a nice contrast against the real life brutality. Watch it here.

NEW WORLD ORDER
I made music for this full length documentary. Alex Jones, a celebrity radio host, and underground cult hero, is the main character of the film. The film chronicles Alex (of Waking Life and A Scanner Darkly), and four other conspiracy theorists, on their ceaseless quests to expose the 'massive global conspiracy' that they believe threatens the future of humanity. Directed by Luke Meyer & Andrew Neel.
Selected scenes from an untitled sci-fi short featuring my score. Work in progress!
This is a wicked animation by the talented Morgan King I made all the drifting ambient space jams.
BLACK MOUNTAIN IV
OPERATION SPACE MAGICK
Operation Space Magick (OSM) is a musical collaboration between composers Mads Heldtberg and Arjan Miranda. Inspired by the writings of George King, founder of the Aetherius Society. Recorded deep in Topanga Canyon CA, with a bunch of analog synths, guitars, noise makers and a half inch analog 8 track this is a soundtrack for interstellar communication. Invoking the ghosts of Beusoliel’s Lucifer Rising and Carpenter’s Halloween, a combination of outsider new age music and obscure science fiction soundscapes. Featuring cover art by Paul Whitehead, of Genesis fame. Turn it up, sit back and let the the communion begin. Buy it here
POLER X NIKE SB
Directed by the ever epic Corey Adams featuring some of my sci-fi soundscapes.
The hedron is a futuristic multi dimensional sound experience, the listener sits inside of an eight foot dodecahedron at the center of ten inward facing speakers and two subs. Audio moves in all directions, around, over, under, and behind, it is a sound experience like no other. Many find it meditative, a true place of calm amongst the storms of daily life. Others find it invigorating, setting the mind in motion, and inspiring creative thought.
The first installment titled "infinity forever" took place at Form / Arcosanti in May 2014
Built by Arjan Miranda and Mathew Morgan aka "Only Love is Real". Check his stuff it's the future right now.
Sounds by Arjan Miranda.
Beautiful psychedelic crystalline delays. Haunting melodies drifting in space.
SELECTED AMBIENT WORKS
A selection of free floating ambient jams.
A PLACE IN THE SUN
Directed by Russell Houghten for New Balance Numeric, I made the intro and outro music. Watch it then dust of the stick and take a roll.
I used to make music for fashion and commercials, this one stays in my mind.
This is my old metal band "Children". Here we are running through the woods getting rad. Buy it here.
