About Conrad Keely: 

Conrad Keely (co-founder of the Austin, Texas–based band …And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead) is much more than a musician. Keely is also known for his artistic talents, including creating album artwork and pursuing visual arts in addition to his music career. As a prime example, the captivating visual accompanying this new free preset pack is a testament to his skill, having been created through one of his own paintings.

Conrad designed a free preset pack available in the latest update for BLEASS Megalit and here’s what he has to say about it:

Although I’ve been a professional musician for nearly thirty years now (and boy did those years go by quickly!), the revolution of the iPad as a production tool came later on in my music career. iOS apps have completely changed the way I have worked and created. For me, being able to compose while on the road and traveling has always been an essential part of my musical creative process. BLEASS began playing a role in that process as soon as they released their very first plugin, and continue to inspire me with each new release. It thus gives me great pleasure to contribute to their growing library of presets.

I started making the presets in this collection while my band Trail of Dead were on tour in Europe last October (2022), right about the time Megalit was first released. For that reason, my early preset experiments have the inspiration of travel and touring behind them (and names to match). The rest I made in the heat of the bright Texas summer. My swelling pads and evolving sounds are meant to evoke arid landscapes, scorching sun and the occasional respite of a swimming oasis.

Because I am a lover of early classical music, I have also found inspiration in the sonic textures of the viol da gamba as well as composers from as early as Palestrina to as modern as Arvo Part. I hope you enjoy creating with these as much as I enjoyed making them!
