Ooooo scary
What a fantastically spooky vibe on this one (hmmm, is that a word? lol). I'm with Dj French...definitely at the top of my list as well. I hear the P81's old school feel on this one. Very nice!

attempt to cause chaos
a vision is created with this music. it is a view through the vision-display of a large destructor robot. it is turned loose to destroy a city. however, its creator did not design it very well. it has bugs. it tries to obey the command. it moves toward the city. however, some humour seeps into its circuit. it sometimes giggles and twitches. it cannot be pure. it cannot be complete evil. it wishes to play. 0x0

honestly thanks a lot because i can picture exactly what your describing as well, and I wish i was efficient at any kind of animation so i could do something with that :P... I really should rename this "infantile robot".. very cool of you to interprit that, i always try to put a picture or story to music i listen to...i actually think you nailed it with that descr!

Char said 3087 days ago (February 5th, 2009)
Excellent piece.
I agree with ic42's story line. It is a young robot and "it" was programmed but "it" lacked the motivation to be a monster and "it" knew if "it" destroys, then there would be nothing else and "it" really did not want to be left alone. What fun is there in being all alone? You are most imaginative. There could even be a song written to this. (A children's tale?) Thanks.

thanks for the kind and strong words Char! I love your addition to ic42's vision. i could see this on tele toon backing an animation of exactly what you and ic42 describe... but more for us adults who are still children at heart :P

kassia said 3087 days ago (February 5th, 2009)
man
that's about the coolest synth sound ever - almost like a contra-bassoon or something. i love it. cool dark tune with just a touch of comic relief from that croaky synth. nice beats. great stuff as usual jay.

thanks kassia! you as well as IC42 seem to always amaze me with your interpritations and views on songs ( you always seem to find and point out what others dont really hear, or neglect to mention ). I like how you felt the darkness but with the immature/comedic undertone to it. very much appreciated, thanks again!

Yo!
I listened to this on laptop speakers and was amazed at the mix. Every range in the spectrum is present. I have to hear this on my studio monitors. Either Reason has great mastering or your mixdown skills are super on this one (or both ;->).
Good job,
Stephen

hey man thanks for that great feedback, I spent a fair bit of time on the mix/overall sound on this one. i didnt use a spectrum analyzer or anything to "see" whats going on it was all by ear, so thats cool it has a natural balance...you got me motivated, thanks

Great mix!
It's been a while since I've used Reason, and almost forgotten about its potentials when it comes to the final mix. This is a good reminder, a very interesting piece, unconventional I would say, and that in a positive way. Good choice of instruments, very well arranged.

thanks mikki, i havnt seen you around before so thanks for stoppin by and giving my music a chance. My main focus is to be as unconventional as possible, and to craft something you probally havent heard before...so i took that very positively. im experimental and like breaking formulas and staying outside the box so to speak. thanks again man, its appreciated.

OK!
Listened on the studio monitors at lunch and guess what . . . an absolutely flawless mix. This is a model piece for mastering.
Well done,
Stephen

Crazy! I love this. I am always looking for the unusual and innovative. Very well mixed and it does sound good through the speakers. It sounds like a sound track for a Tim Burton stop anime'. I worked with him on Mars Attacks and am a big fan of his work. You need to get this to him. It just fits his style of work. He loves the dark and Macabre. Excellent work.
