Willow and the Wolf


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Trying out a few ideas here in an attempt to illustrate the playful interaction between a little robot girl named Willow and a big bad Wolf. The setting is a futuristic forest of metal trees and metal rocks. The Wolf has never been to this part of the forest. He arrived there by chasing the unsuspecting Willow. When he realized that trying to eat her only hurt his teeth, the tables were turned and he decided it was time to get back home. But these metal trees all look the same! Which way did I come? Poor Wolf! You're not so big and bad.
Trying to combine the extremely "electronic sounds" and the more organic congos in a way that will help depict this little adventure. All comments welcome.

Might I suggest a slight change?
I cannot see either willow nor the wolf in this one as it is too repetitive
and mechanical, so I suggest a title more along the lines of "I, Robot" :-)

Otherwise it seems perfect to me.

You're right. I should've added a better song description and image to associate
with the tune that it inspired. You see, Willow is a little robot and the Wolf is
chasing her around the metal forest where nothing he bites can be hurt, so, the
little Willow Robot isn't really afraid of the mean old Wolf and she runs around
taunting and teasing and sometimes pulling the Wolf's tail. In the end, the Wolf
is the one I feel sorry for! I'll scan an image and add the story to the description.
Thanks for your comments. You are my kind of Duck!

woodwolf,

that bad old wolf shouldn't mess with little robot girls. Thanks again for the
feedback. I am a fan of your work and appreciate your comments.

wolf theory
Just dropping by, I listened to this piece again and I found funny
that we both had a song on this little red riding hood theme-
yours a frustrating metal girl, mine an equally frustrating no-good
punk- and that we both seem to feel a certain empathy, if not
identification, towards the wolf. Is this what getting older and
wiser does to men ?

wolf theory
Hey man, just because I have a few grey whiskers spouting on my chin, doesn't
mean I'm getting any wiser.

You know I'm a big fan of the Monggz. Little Black Riding Hood is a good song.

Jaw dropping!
First to fave your first MJ tune!?

I absolutely love this, Bob. Seriously. This is classic.

To think I only heard it today for the first time! Shame on me!

DL'd instantly! I'd love to do something with lyrics here. Let's talk...

And as for 6:30 - too short. I could play this all day!

yo
ok now so far this is my favorite from you. honestly i could see myself writing something like this. from the composition to the choice of sounds to the inital concept itself ( which btw i loved. having willow ( mechanical, emotionless ) seem to be the innocent lil girl but in reality shes more evil than the wolf. The music compliments this, it is a sneaky, mysteriuos, taunting vibe. dude, this is freakin cool. im adding you to my favs just based on this one track alone! very cool. i could say so much that i felt when listening to this.

btw the artwork is grand in its simplicity. and paints the picture and universe you try to convey. twisted, and willow looks sinister.

Willow
Fantastic soundscape! I love how this develops. This is on a different playing field than what my brain churns out! Very cinematic and great backstory. Lovely synth sounds. This one is a gem.
